Not very similar to the name brand.

The wrapper was fairly discreet, and the applicator was similar to Pearl's. However, the most important factors to us are comfort and leak prevention. This is where the equate tampon failed. Tampax has a comfortable cup shape, and a braided part of the string to hold in leaks. The equate tampon was more rectangular in shape and did not have the crucial braid. Our Brandefy ladies will continue to search for what matters to us, and we will be buying Tampax in the meantime.
I personally buy the equate brand tampon. They are about the same as tampax and wayyyy cheaper.
I completely agree with the original review. Personally I find the equate tampons very uncomfortable. When I wear Tampax I completely forget I’m wearing them. Also leakage is a major issue with the Equate tampons. That alone is worth forking out more cash for Tampax.
