Lil-Lets SmartFit™ tampons work by expanding all the way around to give you greater comfort, fit and protection.
Non-Applicator Tampons have a rounded shape and a smooth cover for ease of insertion.
Every woman's period is different, so we aim to create a variety of products to suit everyone. If you find that you have to change your regular tampon every couple of hours (or more often), then opt for our tampons for heavy periods.
Knowing how to use tampons correctly is extremely important when it comes to your period. Tampons should be worn for between 4-8 hours each day, and if you need to change your tampon after less than 2 hours of use, consider switching up to a higher absorbency tampon for your heavier flow days.
Remember to change to a lesser absorbent tampon once your flow becomes lighter.
This actually varies throughout your cycle, with the heaviest blood flow usually occurring at the start of your period. We suggest you change your tampon absorbency to match the heaviness of your flow to ensure you’re well protected throughout. Your period flow can differ from day to day. If you use tampons, you may need to use different sizes for each stage of your period. Some women may use up to three different tampon absorbencies during their period. However, this is not true for everyone and you'll have to work out your own period pattern. Lil-Lets has the widest range of tampon absorbencies in SA, so even if you have a very heavy period, you will find a product that is right for you.
Chlorine bleach and fluorescent brightening agents are not used in the making of Lil-Lets SmartFit™ tampons, pads or liners. Production of the absorbent materials that go into tampons, pads and liners involves purification with either elemental chlorine-free or totally chlorine-free processes ensuring they are hygienic and free from impurities.
No, the absorbent materials in Lil-Lets SmartFit™ tampons have been made with a chlorine-free bleaching process that does not cause dioxin production.
The best way to dispose of your used tampon is to wrap it up in some toilet paper, a tissue or a sanitary bag (sometimes found in a public loo) and throw it in the bin. Tampons can’t break up like toilet paper so they should never be flushed.
Got a question you’ve been too embarrassed to ask? Considering trying tampons for the first time and not sure where to start?
