The 7 Best Tampon Subscriptions of 2020

Get feminine care items delivered to you on a regular basis.

Our editors independently research, test, and recommend the best products; you can learn more about our review process here. We may receive commissions on purchases made from our chosen links.

When it comes to your time of the month, a tampon subscription can make things a whole lot easier. In fact, people will have around 500 periods in our lifetime, so rather than head to the store every month (or worse, get caught short), why not have your tampons (or pads) delivered to your door so you never run out?

While you deal with menstrual cramps, headaches, bloating, back pain, and bleeding, you shouldn't have to worry about running out of your feminine care products. A regular tampon delivery makes perfect sense because it's one less thing to have on your to-do list.

From Lola and the Athena Club to Blume and The Period Store, you can choose from feminine products curated to your needs, based on your flow, how often you want your shipments, and absorbency.

Best Overall: Lola

Lola

Lola

Lola offers tampons with a choice of non-applicator, compact plastic, or a cardboard applicator, starting at around $7.

The tampons are made from 100% cotton and the plastic is BPA-free. You can customize your box of 18 tampons with a combination of light, regular, super, or super+ absorbencies.

They will then be delivered to your door either every four or eight weeks, with the option of free delivery. Want to try Lola before subscribing? Get the Tampons + Liners trial set for around $5, containing six different tampons and two liners.

Beyond retail, Lola also has a blog called The Spot under its community tab that shines a light on various topics, from finding the right tampon to first period stories. 

Best Value: L. Inc.

L. Inc.

L. Inc.

Whether you’re after tampons (applicator or non-applicator), pads or liners, L. Inc. offers them on customizable subscriptions, starting at around $4. The products are all made without pesticides, chlorine, fragrances, or dyes.

So, how does it work? You receive a pouch filled with a bespoke combination of tampons, pads, or liners, selected by you, to get you through your period. You can alter or stop your subscription at any time, otherwise, you’ll receive them monthly.

It's that simple. And, for every period product you buy from L. Inc., it makes a period product available to someone around the world who needs it. You can read about L. Inc.'s movement here.

Best Personalization: Blume

Blume

Blume

From around $8 per month, you can build your own Blume box (with free shipping for orders over approximately $30).

You choose between tampons and pads, then the absorbency you need based on your flow. Next, you can boost your box with extras like liners, Blume skincare (everything from face mists to moisturizers), Cloud 9 Essential Oil to help ease cramps, or a treat (usually chocolate).

Your personalized box will then be delivered to your door. You can skip a month, modify the box, or cancel your subscription at any time. Blume also has a sex education website with handy downloads about subjects, including healthy relationships, pregnancy, and contraception.

Best for Philanthropy: Cora

Cora

Cora

Cora sells a host of period products, but if you’re looking for a tampon subscription, this site has a few good benefits.

You can select non-applicator or applicator tampons which are both made from organic cotton, while the device is made from BPA-free plastic. You can select boxes from six to 24 tampons and customize the box, depending on how light or heavy your periods tend to be.

If you subscribe, you'll receive a chic, black box to keep your tampons in, along with a neat travel clutch for free. Also, for every month you buy, Cora gives health education and a month’s supply of pads to a girl in a developing country.

You can subscribe and pay yearly, from around $15 per month (with free shipping), which comes out to be less money than paying every three months. There is the option to change, or cancel your order at any time, too. 

Best for Options: Athena Club

Athena Club

Athena Club

Athena Club has everything you need to get you through your period: liners, wipes, pads, a menstrual cup, and tampons. The cup ships as a one-off, but everything else you can subscribe to receive.

With the tampons (around $8 per month with free shipping), you have the choice of premium or organic. The premium option is made with cotton, rayon, polyethylene, and polypropylene, but without added chemicals, dyes, or additives, while the organic option is 100% organic cotton.

Next, you choose the applicator type—bioplastic or cardboard. After that, you can select a preset pack, or make your own custom mix of light, regular, or super. Finally, you decide whether you want your tampons delivered every four weeks, every other month, or quarterly. 

Athena also stocks razors, body care products, and even supplements, so it’s a bit of a self-care, one-stop-shop. 

Best for Organic: Tampon Tribe

Tampon Tribe

Tampon Tribe

Tampon Tribe delivers 100% organic, plastic-free tampons, pads, and liners, as well as silicon-free, menstrual cups to your door (with free shipping in the U.S.) And you don't have to worry about any of your products having toxins, chemicals, dyes, or chlorine bleaches. 

You can mix and match your delivery, pause, or cancel at any time. The monthly subscription of organic tampons costs around $10, and you can customize your delivery to contain just the right ratio of regular, super, and super plus absorbencies.

You can also opt to pay upfront: The longer you commit, the more you will save. So, pay a year upfront, and you’ll get around 20% knocked off the price. Want pads and pantyliners, too? Then opt for the My Body - Your Personalised Collection.

Best for Store-Brand Products: The Period Store

The Period Store

The Period Store

Unlike some subscription boxes, with The Period Store, you curate the core contents of the box, so you know what you’re getting.

Starting at about $15 per month (with free U.S. shipping), you can choose tampons, pads, and liners from well-known brands like Tampax and Always, as well as natural brands like Organyc and Natracare.

There's more than just period products for you to choose from: You can add a selection of herbal teas, wellness tinctures, room mists, and candles. Each package contains a gourmet treat, two teabags, and three packets of medicine.

To get your box, simply fill in your shipping details, and let them know when your next period is due and how many days are between your bleeds, so they can deliver the box to you in good time. Want to change the contents or cancel? You can do that at any time.
