I got a sample box of these and I'm glad I didn't have to pay for them. The idea of the wings protecting you from leaks is just that - an idea. In practice it didn't work. Trust me, I found out first hand. The second issue with this is that it's larger than other regular sized tampons, which makes it very uncomfortable to insert.

UNCOMFORTABLE to say the least!!
I would never buy these again
Girls shouldn't 'feel' the tampon once inserted... these tampons have wings on them and they feel so horrible and uncomfortable
Plus the tampon is so much wider.. like the 'regulars' are the thickness of other brands 'supers'
I wish I could get my money back

Unique and work well
I tried these tampons recently for the first time. I dotn usually choose carefree but i decided to give them a go. The wings are very unique and ive never tried anything like them before and they work great. I found them easy to use and there was no leakage. I found the wrapping a bit hard to get off as it dosnt come off in one hit.
But all round a great product that i would use again.

Usually don't go for carefree but tried these out when I was in an emergency. The wraps around the tampons are different and the tampons seem to be a bit big. but I love that I didn't leak!!! So good

They do the job but.....
I got these at the supermarket as they were on special, I usually use the 'normal' ones. I have to be honest and say I really don't like these, I much prefer the ones without the extra bits and pieces hanging off them, they are just not as comfortable.

Not a big fan of tampons..
But if I were to ditch pads and use them regularly, I'd use the Carefree Flexia Tampons! I sometimes have to swim whilst on my period, so (obviously) need to use tampons. If I'm ever stuck in that case, I always turn to these tampons. They do the job brilliantly, prevent leakage and work great in terms of absorbency!
The packaging is super eye-catching and pretty and the tampons are really easy to use.

This is one of few brands I buy when it comes to tampons. I find that they are the right fit and shape for me and never caused any accidents beforehand.

Good tampon, awful wraps
As far as I can tell, this really is just a glorified tampon. I'm not really sure how the wings protect from leaks, but they do, somehow. The wraps on the tampon seem archaic, especially after using other brands that have twist packets, these wraps are harder to open without touching the tampon. The box isn't too bad, a box is a box isn't it?
I personally think these are the same as normal tampons, so I probably wouldn't recommend these.

Did the job.
I don't normally go for carefree but I decided to give it a go (due to lots of advertising and they were on sale). No leaks so it did its job. However they did seem to be a different size (slightly bigger) than libra's and U's regular. Don't know if anyone else thought so.

Wings on a tampon!
Love the idea of wings on a tampon. Why not?
The main thing when using these was:
- No leakage, even when swimming.
- Easy to insert and take out.
- Cute packaging.
I think wings on tampons are a very cool idea. I like using pads with wings, so I guess the tampons will work the same way. Extra protection for no leaks!
