1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't work very well, 18 Aug 2012
This review is from: BiC For Her Medium Ballpoint Pen (Box of 12) - Black (Office Product)
I tried these on a whim, and I have to say I wasn't very impressed. The applicator mechanism is far too fiddly, and the plastic tampon inside far too thin (not to mention uncomfortable and non-absorbant) - I'm sure there must be a knack to using them, but I couldn't find it. They also stained my knickers blue for some reason. I really wanted to like these, but it's back to pads for me.

I guess you have to take that idea back to the drawing board.

I think I can see the problem. The description refers to black ink. If your pen made your knickers blue, you were clearly supplied with the wrong product. On that basis, you're entitled to a refund.

Either that or pregnant.

You're supposed to use pens WITH a pad, not in place of one.

If your knickers are stained blue, I think that means you're having your period. I know that from watching sanitary napkin commercials on T.V.
