      I bought these because they were on offer and I'm glad I did! I really like them!

      The reason why they are called 'for men' is because the tissues are bigger than those in 'normal' 'women's' tissues! I presume men need bigger tissues because they have bigger noses or maybe it's because a big tissue makes them feel more macho... well whatever the reason they're great!

      The box is more 'manly' with it being in bold black, red and white colours. Aside from the colours the box is very similar to normal tissue boxes. It opens at the top and the tissues are dispensed one at a time although every so often you do get two at a time but that's not really a problem!

      The tissues are very soft. They definitely do help when you have a cold and a sore nose from so much blowing! They don't irritate your sore skin at all and are quite soothing even though they don't have any balms as such in them.

      They are also very absorbent. When mopping up a spilt drink I realised that these are good at absorbing liquid so again very useful!

      In my opinion these are really good tissues. I don't actually see them as any different than ordinary tissues except for the size of them which is actually more useful!

      I like how they're very soft to touch so that when you do need to blow your nose it's gentle against your skin especially if it's tender.

      I am glad that I bought these as the fact they're for men shouldn't mean that only men can use them- at least I hope it doesn't mean this as I've used them many a time!

      I think that they are good value for money at around £1.90 for a box which may be more expensive than if you just used toilet roll to blow your nose but toilet roll isn't as soft and soothing as these are. They are available from supermarkets and shops such as superdrug so they are easy to get hold of. Sometimes there are offers on too making it even better value for money!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Great price for a quality branded product

      As a general rule, I prefer to use branded boxes of tissues. At this time of the year I suffer from my dreaded 'summer cold' - either that, or I get symptoms of hayfever. Last week we went to Whitby for a family day out and it was ruined by my sneezing and running weeping eyes, all day long. I had forgotten to take my hayfever tablet, so it was my own fault. I need to have paper tissues with me at all times, otherwise you can often find me in a public loo, pinching toilet paper, but this doesn't work for me as well, as I find that little bits of paper will invariable shred off and make the eye streaming situation even worse than it was before.

      I like larger sized paper tissues, and it's for this reason that I prefer to use Kleenex Tissues For Men. For Men? Well, it may be a bit of a sexist claim, granted, but they are larger than your standard sized tissues.

      These Tissues for Men come in the familiar shaped cardboard rectangular shaped box with the oval shaped perforated top. I usually pay in the region of just under £2 for a large sized box of brilliant white tissues. The cardboard container can also be recycled after use. These tissues are brilliant because not only are they larger than average sized paper tissues, they are also remarkably soft and very strong at the same time, which means that instead of having to cram my bag full of individual tissues, I can carry less with me as they are going to last longer than 'ordinary' ones.

      The tissues also come out of the perforated hole one at a time, and not by the dozen. I have also used these tissues whenever I have a cold and you can bet there is always a spare box under my kitchen cupboard. Both my husband and my daughter use these larger sized tissues. They don't shred and there is no need to have to use more than one at a time, even with the heaviest of colds. They are not perfumed or impregnated with any particular fancy fragrance or balsam - they are just plain strong soft white tissues and the quality is really very good.

      I often find that I can get these on offer in Tescos but I am happy to pay full price as they really are superior to most of the shop's own brands around at the moment.

      Highly recommended.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Worth it for the price

      It kind of annoys me that they market these tissues as 'for men' simply because of the size, whereas it's impossible to find large tissues that are considered unisex. It does make a difference, although it shouldn't, because whenever people come over and they see them they always comment on them being for 'the man of the house', which I find ridiculous frankly, but anyway..

      I always need decent tissues due to my many allergies, the most latest of which is hayfever. As you may have seen from my Andrex review I also really don't like cheap tissues that fall apart easily or ones with strong smells. I picked up a box of Kleenex 'mansize' tissues in the supermarket once when I was in a rush and not really paying attention other than with the vague thought that Kleenex is a well-established and much-trusted brand.

      Well, despite the silliness of the name, these tissues really do hold their own when it comes to softness, strength and size, which means when I am popping out I only need to take one with me instead of a few like I usually do. I think this is a mark of a good tissues but it's also one I hadn't really thought about before. I have noticed that less tissues in general are making their way into the wastebasket which makes me think that they are lasting longer than tissues normally do, which makes them worth the cost of £2, which I would have thought expensive before as I usually pay only about a pound for boxed tissues.

      I have also used these tissues when I had a cold and I noticed that my nose didn't get too sore, which I thought was a normal occurrence but now I think perhaps it was the cheaper brand tissues that were causing it. Certainly my nose has not become sore using these Kleenex for Men tissues including during bad bouts of hayfeverish sneezing.

      The tissues come in a standard rectangle box which is made of cardboard and can be recycled. There is a perforated oval shape in the middle to pull the tissues out of and it is easy to tear which again some boxes are not and when the boxes get scruffy around that area it makes the whole pack look untidy.

      Since buying them that fateful day we now always stock up on these tissues and they are sometimes on offer so it's worth keeping an eye out and trying them before you buy a load. When we go away I always buy a standard box of tissues due to the smaller box size and quantity but for home these are perfect. Because the box is so big it also has a good weight to it and tends to stay where it is put. I recommend these tissues then BUT don't underestimate people's reactions when they see you with 'mansize' tissues, because honestly that joke never seems to get old and it does do my head in!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Great tissues

        As I mentioned in a previous review, when we moved into our new house, the previous owners who were moving across the water were very kind and left us a pile of cleaning items and other household everyday products, including a couple of unopened boxes of these Kleenex mansize tissues, which I must confess, I had never previously bought myself despite seeing them on the shelf. My husband is quite old fashioned (!) and insists on using a handkerchief rather than a disposable tissue, but I always have tissues in the house for my daughter and myself. These tissues are currently on offer in Tesco for £1;50 but you would usually expect to pay around the £2 mark.

        These tissues usually do stand out on the shelf due to the larger than average size, hence the name 'mansize' or 'for men' The packaging has been slightly updated from the picture above, but is still dark in colour. These tissues claim to be 'extra strong' and 'extra large' and are therefore suitable for the entire family to use and not just 'men'!

        With the recent spell of good weather, I seem to be a bit sniffly which I presume is related to high pollen levels, rather than a cold, and so have been reaching for the tissues more often. Having finished my last pack of tissues, I opened these Kleenex mansize tissues and was very impressed. On the first day I opened them, I put one in my pocket so I would have one at work if my nose annoyed me. As I sniffled at times during the day, this tissue kept its form no matter how many times I wiped my nose which is obviously important, so I wasn't reaching for a new tissue every time my nose felt a little runny. I like the size of these tissues as well, and it means you get more for your money, so unless you have a heavy cold and are blowing your nose and disposing of the tissue after one use, one of these tissues can last you a good part of the day, if you are only wiping a runny nose every so often. There are other cheap tissues on the market, where even after one little wipe of the nose, they are fit for nothing other than the bin.

        All in all, after we finish these couple of boxes of these tissues left, I would definitely purchase some myself when on offer, as I think the size and the durability of these tissues make them better than the average size tissue on the market. If there was one minor complaint, and it doesn't bother me, but my irk others, it is that the box is pretty big and so doesn't always fit neatly into a small area the way other tissue boxes may. Other than this, I would highly recommend these mansize tissues - even if you aren't a man!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        I will buy them again and do recommend them.

        My husband and myself have both been suffering with a bit of a cold and a sniffle recently, presumably as a result of the ever-changing weather conditions we have been experiencing lately. We nipped off to a local branch of Tesco to stock up on some supplies to tide us over.

        One item on our list was some tissues, as we had used up our existing supply at home. I had intended to purchase the 'balsam' tissues from the well-known 'Kleenex' brand, but when I perused the items in store, I noticed a generously-sized 'Twin Pack' of tissues available from elsewhere in the Kleenex range. Thus, my purchase was made, and this review will outline my experiences of using the "Kleenex For Men Tissues."

        The boxes of tissues that I purchased are very large, with each containing 100 tissues. The price paid for the double pack of two boxes was around £3.80 in my local Tesco store. Whilst this price is not the cheapest I could have obtained in-store, I do tend to like using "Man-sized" tissues when my nose is running and feels sensitive and sore, and I do feel they are worth paying slightly more for, due to their generous size.

        The packaging is fairly basic, I must admit, and I don't think it has even had much of a facelift in recent times as the product has been presented in colours of grey and black for as long as I can remember. To be fair it has been updated slightly, and certainly it looks slightly more appealing than the picture at the top of the Dooyoo page here. This is an observation rather than being a criticism on my part, and its fair to say that the packaging is fit for purpose and hasn't caused me any problems or issues.

        As with most products like this one, there is a large oval-shaped section on the front of the box that needs to be removed prior to use. This will allow the tissues themselves to be removed easily and quickly from their cardboard prison. I found removing this section of the box to be quite easy to do, thanks to the perforated section surrounding it, and I managed to do this by myself, even though I have limited strength in my hands as a result of health issues.

        The Kleenex For Men Tissues seem to have been 'linked' together in some way as they have been packaged, and this allows you to neatly remove one from the box with another making itself readily available in the oval-shaped 'window'. This design means that there is no annoying 'gathering' of the tissues to each other in the box as you are trying to remove one. Such annoyances are rather minor, it is true, but I do find that that cheaply-branded or 'budget' tissues will often have this irksome trait, requiring me to stuff some of the unwanted tissues back in the box with each use.

        The tissues themselves are fairly 'basic' in their appearance, it is fair to say, although such things are relatively unimportant to me, and I am most definitely more concerned with how the tissues actually perform. It is easy to tell that the tissues are lovely and soft in their texture, with this trait being evident even as one of the Kleenex tissues is removed from its box.

        With their paper layers feeling rather thick and quite luxuriously soft, the Kleenex tissues are absolutely ideal, particularly when such a sore, delicate area as an inflamed nose is their intended recipient! I have no complaints at all, in terms of either the quality or thickness of the Kleenex For Men Tissues and when considering these points, it is not difficult to understand why they have stood the test of time as a product.

        There is no 'skimping' on the size of these particular paper hankies, of course, as they are 'man sized' in their description and, indeed, their appearance. They are extremely generously-sized, allowing for more 'usage' room than your average-sized tissue, which can prove to be a rather crucial point if you have a particularly drippy or sneezy nose to deal with! Previously, two individual tissues were required to sufficiently wipe my nose, to sufficiently 'catch' any nasal 'residue', as it were, but with the Kleenex For Men tissues being the tissues of the moment, one tissue has been more than ample to cope with my 'nasal needs' adequately..!

        With my nose being red, inflamed-feeling and well, quite tender, I have found no further irritation to the area by using the Kleenex For Men tissues. For this reason, and for the reason that I find they are quite thick and very large, making them more than suitable for use in our household recently - even with two runny noses to deal with - I would have no hesitation in repurchasing these particular tissues during the next 'head cold' spell we need to deal with! For the reasons outlined in this review, the Kleenex For Men Tissues come with my full recommendation, together with full marks in the Dooyoo product rating score.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Worth paying more for

          I've recently been picking up twin boxes of Kleenex tissues when the need arises, from Home Bargains. The exact price escapes me now, but I would guess it would be between 99p and £1.99 for me to consider them a bargain. To be honest, tissues are something I've never been bothered about having round the house unless one of us is ill, but since stocking up with these I have found them to be indispensable.

          The box is black with red swirls, making it easy to distinguish as Kleenex, and also as a tissue box which is useful when visitors such as my friend who is allergic to our cat, are seeking a tissue. The box has a perforated opening which you need to rip to open it, and then the tissues are easily removed from the box, with it being rare to accidentally pull out more than you intended. I've never understood why these are called "Kleenex for Men", surely women can use these too?! Anyway, sexism aside, they are very useful for men, women, children, and also household spillages if you're running short on kitchen roll.

          The first thing you'll notice about these tissues is that they are much larger than most. Obviously I've not gone to the extreme of measuring them, but I know that I always end up folding them in half, otherwise there's too much tissue getting in the way. They feel very thick and luxurious, with no chance of ripping or tearing, and they are very absorbent so you'll get a good bit of use out of one tissue before discarding it. Sometimes I feel it's a bit wasteful if I use a tissue to catch a sneeze, for example, and although I want to bin it for hygiene reasons, the majority of the tissue hasn't been used! They're great for when you have a cold, because I find it comforting that they're so large and you don't have to worry too much about them not being strong enough to cope with the evils a cold can bring. They are also soft on your nose so you can minimise the Rudolph effect if you're suffering with a cold.

          Although I am always scrimping and trying to find ways to save money, I do believe these are worth paying a bit more for. Not only are they excellent quality, but they last ages too and I think buying anything else would be a false economy.

          the only ones i'll buy

          Whenever I need tissues I always buy Kleenex Man Size.

          These tissues are a large 2 ply tissue. I find these are a lot more effective than others as when I need a tissue at work the small cheap tissues are bought and after one blow you can go through the tissue and need another couple. These are the complete opposite and although I do not keep them long before throwing them away, they can be used a lot of times without going soggy.

          They are very strong for tissues and don't rip unless you intend them too.

          The Kleenex tissues are a lot softer and gentler to the nose than other brands. I find most other brands are like paper but these are nice and soft.

          There are lots in a pack and I usually go through half to three quarters of a pack during a cold. I think this is excellent for a box of tissues as I feel as if my nose never stops running.

          They are in a long thin pack made from recyclable cardboard. This is practical as it can fit in small places like under the bed and under the car seat.

          The design on the box is grey lines going in varying directions and I like how the brand is not clearly visible.

          The tissues come out of the pack easily but I find occasionaly when nearing the end of the box a few tissues come out at the same time. They can be returned easily though.

          I cannot fault these tissues. Why use any other brand?

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Quality value for money tissues that are easy to use and won't rip

          So, does this mean that women can't use these tissues? No, not all. What this is equates to a branding way of saying that these are big tissues. Kleenex are pretty much the leading brand of tissues, and for a good reason. They are strong tissues, capable of a proper blow and a good clear out of your nose, but they are also multi-purpose and can be used when you need something quickly to wipe something up.

          Now of course they're known as mansize, a subtle rebranding that doesn't really make much of a difference. The tissues themselves are housed in a large rectangular box with a perforated oval in the thin cardboard on the top. This comes off very easily, and while this is a somewhat minor point, it comes off easily every time. No ripping half the box because the perforations aren't very good, it comes off easily every time. Inside, the tissues are folded so that it's easy to pick one out at a time. Again, there are some tissues where you have a real fight on your hands either to get a tissue out at all or to take only one a time without a whole bunch of them coming out.

          The tissues themselves are quite soft, so when you have a cold and end up using quite a few, you needn't worry about excessive rubbing and making your nose sore. Similarly, the tissues are quite strong and this means that even the biggest blow of your nose is unlikely to burst a hole in the tissue. We do have tissue boxes with standard tissues in them, and there is a notable difference when using Kleenex, as you can fold them over and use them twice or sometimes a little more, which saves on wastage and also in the long run means that you use less tissues and it costs less as well.

          You can usually get a box of 100 of these tissues for around the £2 mark, certainly not the cheapest but like I said this can often be more efficient in cost because you end up using less of them. While the price hasn't necessarily dropped, Kleenex have also done a couple of things to persuade you to buy them more by helping the environment. One of the ways they've done this is also of benefit for storage, which is removing the air gap they had between the top of the box and the first tissue. This means the box is shorter and makes it easier to store if you want to get a couple of boxes at a time. It also reduces the amount of packaging making it better for the environment. However, like I said this doesn't reflect in the price - you're basically still paying per tissue. You can also get the compact version of this, half size tissues in a half size box.

          So, these tissues are soft to the touch and don't rip when you blow your nose. I'd certainly recommend using them as opposed to other tissues. They're better quality and I feel better value for money. Recommended.

            A good value large 'man size' tissue.

            So joining my medication reviews has to be the tissues so I can wallow in the self pity of my cold, sometimes I think I should be a man so I could mope around with 'man flu' but as a woman I am expected to continue like a soldier marching out to war.

            So enough of the self pity, I rarely use tissues I must admit unless its cold out as my nose doesn't run much (ha ha). I think the combination of central heating and barely opened work windows dry my poor little nostrils to arid landscapes.

            So when out and about I saw the little Kleenex compact for men tissues box and there were two boxes for £2 which was a bargain, thats 200 tissues!! The box looks nothing like the one above as that one is a little bit 90's retro. Nowadays they are mainly grey and the box is square and the tissues folded inside to make the box more user friendly.

            Once I'd torn off the cardboard seal and took out my first tissue I was pleased to see the size, they are about 30cm x 27cm which are nice and big. They are 2 ply and retain their appearance even after blowing your nose a few times, there is nothing worse than a straggly scruffy old tissue.

            Now they aren't balsam or super soft but if your nose gets a bit sore do what I do and rub some vaseline on it; why pay loads for a supposedly coated tissue? When I have a cold or runny nose for more than a few days the tissue makes no difference to how sore my nose gets.

            I recommend these tissues as they can withstand nose blowing, wiping a small surface, make up removal but not wiping hands when you eat something sticky!!

              Handy good large sized tissue

              My mum will only use Kleenex Mansize tissues, has done for years and always has a couple of boxes in. I got some last time I called round.

              I see in Tesco they are £2 for 100 sheets- either in a twin pack or a normal size pack. The only difference between the two is the size of the box.

              The box is of grey and black cardboard emblazoned with 'Kleenex' in white so easy to spot. To remove the tissues you open the oval serrated lid which is easy to do, it's not resealable. The tissues are two ply and brilliant white, they don't smell.

              The tissues are hard wearing, my mum uses them to remove her makeup because they don't break up. I've seen her mop up spills with them and she's always blowing her nose too, so gets through quite a few boxes.

              I have a cold, my nose and eyes are streaming so she gave me a box of these. They're a good size probably about 30cm long. They are two ply making it necessary to only need one at a time. The quality is good enough although thin are softer than loo roll on my sore nose. The tissues are strong and stay in one piece whilst blowing it. They absorb really well and are dry enough to keep in my pocket after one use, but can't be reused much as they sort of scrunch up (not that you'd want to reuse them but you know what I mean)

              4 stars from me as they're not the thickest I've used nor the cheapest

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Not just for men!

              I like to have a tissue in my pocket or handbag at all times as I quite often get a bit of a runny nose or will sneeze. I seem to be allergic to really dusty environments and also cat hairs and in my job I never know what I will come across!

              The tissues I usually buy are Kleenex Mansize (previously called Kleenex for men). The packaging has had a recent revamp in the past couple of years - these tissues now in 2 sizes of boxes - there is the standard rectangular box with the cardboard oval that pops out - or there is the compact version which is a square box that comes in a twin pack.

              I usually buy the twin pack of the compact version of these tissues. There are 50 tissues in each box. These tissues are the same size as in the full size box, but they are just folded differently to fit in the square box. The tissues are 2 ply meaning they have 2 layers of tissue. Each tissue opens up to be rectangular in shape and is around 27cm x 30xm. These tissues are larger than other tissues I have purchased in the past which I suppose gives them the "mansize" name. The large size of these tissues means they can be used more than once (hygiene freaks look away!). I also think the large size is useful when you have a rotten cold as you can clean your nose properly without having to use more than one tissue.

              These tissues are quite strong and do not rip easily. I have used other tissues in the past that tear when you use them to blow your nose or even when you put them in your pocket. That is not the case with these tissues, they are durable and good quality.

              These tissues are quite soft to the touch. I find them soft enough for general day to day use - they do not irritate the skin on my face. However if I have a nasty cold that requires lots of nose wiping and blowing, I have found that these tissues are a little rough for repeated use.

              A twin pack of the compact boxes of Kleenex Mansize (total 100 tissues) usually costs around the £2.00 mark (at the time of writing they are on offer at Tesco for £1.50). At around 2p a tissue I think this is a reasonable price, however there are cheaper tissues out there for anyone watching the pennies.

              I give these tissues a 4* rating, taking one star off for the simple fact that overuse of these does give me a bit of a red nose, and also because they are more expensive than other tissues. Thanks for reading/rating.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              An average tissue

              I have an awful cold at the moment and as well as making me feel a bit sorry for myself this has caused me to get through a lot of tissues. Luckily I did have plenty of tissues at home to use as I had recently bought two boxes of Kleenex mansize (that is what they are called now, not Kleenex for Men) as they were on offer in Tesco.

              A box contains 100 tissues. Each tissue is 2 ply and when opened out they are 30 cm by 27 cm in size, which is rather large. The box is grey with a bit of pattern and not particularly inspiring or fresh looking but I am not at all bothered about that. I am only interested in how nice they feel to use.

              I have found that these tissues feel a little bit thin. They don't have that thick and cushiony feel which you sometimes get from tissues and they do not have any added extras like balsam or aloe vera. Basically they are just "bog standard" tissues but with a larger surface area. Personally I find them fine if I am just using one or two a day, as in that case I don't really think too much about the tissue quality as long as it does the job. However, when I am unwell and have a cold which is causing me to get through larger quantities of tissues, that is when the quality becomes much more important and I start to notice that these are really not the best.

              Not to be gross, but these tissues don't hold a lot of moisture and don't absorb very well, so once I have blown my nose once or twice, that tends to be it for the tissue and it is a soggy mess. Other tissues which are thicker can stand being used a bit more before throwing away in my experience.

              Also, after using a lot of these the paper starts to feel very rough on my skin. My nose are currently feels red raw as I have been using these tissues pretty much constantly all day. If my cold goes on much longer I might have to give in and get some balsam ones for my poor skin, as I hate this chapped feeling which this normal plain tissue paper can cause when used so often. I can't overly criticise this, as it is no rougher than any other normal tissues really, and it's not awful, but I definitely think they are more suited to occasional use than constant heavy use.

              Over all they are fine as a general tissue and they will do fine for the odd time you need to blow your nose, wipe your eyes, wipe up a bit of mess quickly or something, but heavy use of them might leave you wishing for something a bit gentler, softer, and more luxurious!

                Disadvantages

                Great tissues, recommend to anyone!

                These tissues are really good, I have been using them for a really long time, and as a man, I can say that these soft white tissues made by kleenex are the best a man can get!

                The first time I used these tissues, I was amazed at how soft they felt and struck at how dazzling white they were. After a long time using them, I now have also discovered some more advantages of this Kleenex product. The tissues are very durable in comparison other tissue brands and can be used more than once without ripping apart, they also soak up liquids very fast, I found this out when my dog tipped over a bowl of milk and only 3 kleenex tissues cleaned up the entire mess.

                These tissues are very good value for money! Although the price of a box can be considered high when compared to rival brands, you get quite a lot of them in the box (100) and the are very big (man size) which in my opinion is great as a big tissue is great because when I have a runny nose, it's like a tap!

                The fact that they come in a box is a big advantage to me, as I like to keep everything organised and when I go out I just take a couple of tissues out of the box, fold them and put them in my pocket for whenever I need them.

                Great product !

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                A manly tissue for all

                My boyfriend buys these, and I always try to pick some up whenever I see them on offer. Whilst I may think it a little sexist, these are good all-round tissues for men or women.

                Kleenex is a leading brand when it comes to tissues; they've very popular and have an ever-expanding range, and I trust them when it comes to making good quality products. Their Mansize tissues were released a while ago, which they then made a sequel to : Mansize Compact, aka Mansize in smaller box. I prefer the compact ones because the box is more square in shape than rectangular, and thus they do seem a bit more convenient to have on the shelf.

                The design is primarily shades of grey, which isn't all too exciting but I think it's aimed at its 'mansized' consumers. The boxes are quick to spot on the shelf and look like good quality. Okay, so they may not win design of the year, but they're reasonable enough to put in a room and look somewhat stylish, or at least not tacky.

                Despite the more compact box, you get the same number and thickness of tissues, they're just 'lightly compressed'. Each box provides you with an average of 50 tissues that are 2 ply and measure 29 x 27cm. 50 tissues is around average and lasts us a little while, though obviously it depends how many you're using and why you're using them (if not for just snotty noses!). I find these to be quite large in size and a reasonable thickness to absorb well and maintain their structure without falling apart. Because they're in the bedroom they often get used to mop up tea spillages and such, and they've been durable for the small things like that here and there. For noses and faces, they're soft enough to be gentle on skin and not too thick that they're hard or rough in any way.

                These usually come in a box of two, and they're often on offer. The most recent offer I saw I think was for a box of 4 in a multipack at £3 (Sainsburys). Overall, I would recommend these, mostly if you can get them when they're on sale; they're good quality, soft yet durable, and a large size.

                Compact version with two boxes sells for around £2.03 (Boots)

                Disadvantages

                Really good value

                I am a man who likes to use things which are specifically designed for just men. My other half likes to buy these feminine tissue things which are scented and covered in little hearts or flowers. Personally I cannot be bothered with it all but I would feel stupid if the blokes at work caught me blowing my rather manly nose with a girly tissue, especially a scented one.

                For this reason, I like Kleenex Tissues for Men. I buy the twin pack which at the moment are £1.29 for a very large box. They are large and strong (a bit like me) and white in colour - nice white, not an on / off white colour. I don't much like those recyclable tissues you can get either which are a horrible off white colour and look like they have already been used. They are very strong and bits of tissue won't come off like the cheaper ones do once they have been used.
                These are very absorbent tssues and when I have a heavy cold they are particularly good to use as they don't break up easily. I find I can actually blow my nose again and again and the tissue won't come apart in bits in my hands or my pockets. I use about two at a time, not because my nose is particualry large but just because I prefer to.

                The quality is good and they are a brand I know and trust and have been using them for years now. I have used other tissues before but this is by far my preferred brand of tissue. I will let my other half use them if she really needs to but she often just sticks to her own.
                They are very widley available and often can be found on special offer, depending on where you actually shop.

                The boc is plainly packaged and in bold colours with no frills, pictures of love hearts or flowers or fairies. It looks like a masculine box and I am happy to take a box to work with me if I have a cold and keep them next to my computer.
                Thoroughly recommended decent tissue.
