"No more bulky, messy, leaky products. No more wearing a liner just in case."

Let's talk about periods, shall we? Whether you use pantyliners or tampons, we can all unite and agree that they are the absolute worst. For those with heavier periods, tampons alone just don't cut it and sometimes aren't even an option. But now, someone has created a leak-free tampon and it's kind of game-changing.

The product was designed by Callaly, who thought it was time to rethink the classic tampon. On their website, they write: "Ever since tampons went on sale in 1936, people have been saying “it’ll do” – even when the product doesn’t work well." They also claim their product is the first major innovation in the world of tampons in almost 80 years - and you know what, they're probably right.

The Tampliner (as it shall henceforth be known), is effectively just a tampon and a liner all rolled into one, eliminating the need to use an extra liner - just in case. But how the bloody hell (no pun intended) does it work?

Here's what it says on their website: "You put a Tampliner in by pushing the tampon through the hole in the mini-liner, into your vagina. As the tampon enters your body, your finger goes into the virtual applicator, keeping it clean. When you’ve pushed the tampon into the right position, the mini-liner should fold between your labia. The (breathable) virtual applicator lines your vagina, keeping the tampon and mini-liner in place."

And there's even a short clip to show you what it looks like too.

Low-key genius, right?

The Tampliner was invented by a gynaecologist, perfected by a garment technologist, is more than 95% biodegradable, sterilised and has a shed free surface.

An iconic, game-changing tampon. We stan.
