      Why pay more?

      I don't often use little packets of tissues, because I just think that they are so expensive for what they are. However after realising that I was starting to look like my grandma with bits of toilet roll shoved up all of my sleeves, I decided to get some. These Spring Force ones seem to be the best choice being that I didn't want to spend a lot of money on them. They are available from Tesco. Spring Force is a sort of discount range that seems to only be available in Tesco. The range is sort of halfway between branded items and Tesco's Value range, although I would say the general quality of the items is much better than value but a lot less expensive than branded equivalents; the best of both worlds - perfect! The tissues come in packs of 15 for £1.19, which makes them about 8p per packet. At this price, you'd be forgiven for thinking that they aren't much cop but they are actually very good. I find that they are quite strong and durable. At the risk of being slightly gross, they have easily coped with even the worst of my colds and admirably too. I have found in the past with cheap tissues that they can be quite abrasive on your nose, but this isn't the case at all with these. I think they feel really soft. I actually think that they feel a lot like those tissues from the branded range that have the balsam in them. The fact that they come in packs of 15 makes them even better value for money, especially when you compare them with other brands where you only tend to get ten packets. The packaging is nice enough. It is fairly plain, although it does have a few of the bright flowers that are synonymous with the range on the front of them. I mention the wrapping only because the tissues are something that you will probably carry around with you and maybe even offer to other people and it is nice that the packaging doesn't look cheap and nasty. Overall I'd definitely recommend the tissues because they are cheap, fit for purpose and handy to have.

        Having a busy family I always like to have a packet of tissues in my handbag for when out and about, as you never know when you might need a tissue for one thing or another! When shopping in Tesco recently, I was looking at their range of pocket tissues, it was quite extensive and included a number of leading brands and ranged in price from only a few pence to a few pounds. As I wasn't fussed about having a tissue infused with aloe vera or something similar, I decided to go for the SpringForce pocket pack tissues. They are a simple and basic plain white tissue with no additional ingredients. As far as I am led to believe SpringForce are a discount brand only sold in Tesco. I have also used their toilet tissue which again I purchased in Tesco. Value for money was great, there were 18 individual packs inside and I only paid £1.22! Working out to £0.07 per individual pack of tissues you really can't go wrong. The packaging is not overly appealing but is functional and serves it purpose. Each pack of tissues is packaged in a clear plastic tight fitting sealed bag to keep the tissues clean and fresh for when you open it. To open each pack you simply put the sticky label and the pack opens with ease. Inside each individual pack of tissues there are 10 tissues each being 4 ply. As a result they are plenty thick enough to deal with coughs and colds as well as clearing up spillages. Each of the tissues is of a reasonable size too and similar to other main brand pocket tissues. I have found the tissues to be surprisingly strong and able to mop up spilt drink for instance and not tearing easily when used as some cheaper tissues are prone to doing. Overall I have been really impressed with these pocket tissues for their quality and value for money. On comparison to other plain tissues with no added ingredients such as aloe vera, they are just as good if not better. I will definitely be buying again once I have got through the 18 packs! Easily worthy of 5 stars.

          pretty good

          While we stay lingering in the season of sniffles for a while longer (it snowed again today...again!) we must confront the cold weather and grin and bear it. For me, this means a runny nose and usually earache. Runny noses are easily counteracted with a good packet of pocket tissues in the pocket, or indeed the car. You can of course buy those king sized tissues, which are ridiculously overpriced and you get about three tissues. A cheaper alternative is the SpringForce pocket tissue. I already use their brand of toilet paper and find it most rewarding. Maybe rewarding is the wrong word...enjoyable, yes there we go. Enjoyable because it is comforting, soft and squishy to the touch. For a heavily discounted brand, SpringForce comes up trumps in the comfort and price stakes. It might not have the luxurious balmy touch of the really expensive brands, but it is pretty soft, durable and dirt cheap. This is what I look for when purchasing a tissue. The tissues can be bought in packs of eighteen for a little over one pound from Tesco. This is wonderful value for money, as each tissue is four ply making it last longer still. The tissues are gentle and soothing on the nose and do not make it go all sore and crusty. While they might lack the genteel nature of the balmed tissues, they do stand up to a good blow and are also great at mopping up sudden spillages. I often turn to them for mopping up accidents near the sink and foody messes on desks. The pocket sized tissues will suit men and women alike. Men can put them in their pocket, women in their handbags and nobody need be any the wiser. So if you fancy cutting a few pence off your shopping bill, these are a really good discounted brand. Highly recommended.

          Great value and do the job well.

          With three children in the house, I have always found that we through an awful lot of tissues. It seems that when one gets the sniffles, they all do and these pocket tissues are very handy for them to pop into their pockets or school bags. I only came across SpringForce pocket tissues last year and I am now on my second packet of 18. Each of these packs has 10 x 4 ply tissues and at the price of £1.22 in Tesco, I find them great value. Before I found these, I was buying the Tesco 6 pocket pack, which are 97p, so the SpringForce are amazing value. The SpringForce tissues are soft and strong and I find that they do the job very well. My youngest son is awful though, he takes one wipe and throws it away. Thank goodness they are so cheap or is would cost me a fortune. I will definately keep buying these and will always keep a packet in my cupboard, ready for all their sneezes.

          A bargain buy & great to keep in as they always come in handy!

          I always like to keep a packet of tissues in my handbag because they always come in handy, be it a runny nose, an accident with a cuppa tea, or the dreaded public toilet with no toilet roll, I like to know I have tissues just in case. Considering tissues are tissues, it's surprising the price difference with some of them. Most of the time I think the price just reflects the brand name or the design on the packaging or tissues, so I would rather just be paying for the product itself. I'm not one for the fancier tissues with balm, or a scent, so I prefer plain and simple, but soft, hankies. These tissues are made by Springforce, a brand I think I've only come across in Tesco, and so are presumably a Tesco discounter brand. They're sold in my local Tesco in packs of 18, which sounds like quite a lot but they're great to keep in the cupboard. At £1.19 for 18 packs, they're a very reasonably priced buy, especially when compared to the more well-known and popular alternatives. For example, a pack of 6 regular Kleenex pocket pack tissues cost £1.18, so for pretty much the same price you get 12 packets less in return for perhaps a prettier design & a popular brand name. Each packet contains 10 tissues, and has an easy to open & re-close sticky tab. They have flower images on the plastic packet over a primarily white & blue design, so they're reasonably attractive and not completely plain. Whilst they may be cheaper tissues, they don't shout 'cheap' by the design or feel of the product. They're 4 ply tissues, with an average sheet size of 210mm x 210mm. Each tissue is therefore a good size, and also a good thickness which is important if you need to mop up a small spill when you're out. They're multi-purpose and durable because of their thickness & size, but are still soft enough for noses and faces. Although they're not as soft as some, they're not too rough on skin so I'm happy enough to use these. Overall I would definitely recommend these the next time you're in Tesco. They're a great price and you get plenty for your money. They're durable, a good size and soft enough for skin, so whilst they may not have balm, have a brand image, claim to be exceptionally smooth or decorated with pretty flowers, they do the job well enough. I'm glad I started using these and have no qualms about them when they're this price for 180 tissues! :o)
