Kleenex Balsam Tissues.
These are the queen of luxury tissues and are a must for anyone who goes through a cold or the hay fever season. These have a subtle layer of Calendula balm weaved into its sheets so when you use one of these sheets, a thin layer of the balm is left thus leaving the area around your nose feeling soft and silky. I sound as if I'm advertising for a shampoo, but seriously, these are very good decent tissues here.
They are 3-ply tissues compared to the usual 2-ply with most other brands and feel so thick and soft you almost feel it would be such a waste to use them for what they are.
Compared to other brands, these are actually a lot more expensive, but with this kind of quality, it is pretty reasonable. A box of 50 large sheets will be about £2.49 - they also do little pocket sized packet and these feel even better and thicker. I think they're actually 4 ply even (though please correct me if someone has a pack handy to check ).
They also come in small mini pocket packs of nine folded tissues. The pocket ones are for some reason ridiculously priced - it can cost up to 55p per small pack, their twin packs are surprisingly priced the same and the multi-packs of 6 are only around £1.49 - irrational I know, but there must be some reason they've done it this way...
Though expensive, these tissues do save the area around your nose from all that blotchiness that results from wiping your nose too many times. In effect, these tissues are actually more of a health supplement for your skin as the blotchiness often means damage to the outer surface layers of your skin. Having used these through colds and hayfever there is definitely a felt difference when you run out of these and have to return to using ordinary tissues.
The hay fever season is just around the corner, so I will be down to Superdrug to stock up on these...
Thanks for reading. xx
Summary: A luxury item during the cold and hayfevers seasons.
