Tempo - best mate for your running nose
Member Name: kerrycwy
Advantages: Soft and smooth; Skin friendly
Disadvantages: Relatively pricier (as in the Hong Kong market)
I am not a loyal fans to any particular brand of pocket tissues and usually just buy whatever brand that is on discount! When I pull out my drawer which I use to stock my pocket tissues, I will usually find packets of tissues from different brands. Having said that, I do make sure that there are a few packets of tempo tissues in my drawer so that I can use them when I have a cold!
The packaging is a simple one and I have to say that basically all the pocket tissues appear to be the same to me.... What I like about Tempo is their classic blue colour. It gives it a sense of elegance and nice to look at.
The pocket tissues come with different scents: Neutral, Menthol, Jasmine and Applewood scents. (Note: I am not sure if they are all available in the UK but you can find them all in the Hong Kong market). The menthol, jasmine and applewood scents ones all smell nice and long-lasting. You can still smell the scent even after you have opened the packet for some time. However, I do prefer using the neutral ones when I am suffering from a running nose as I can't smell the other scents anyway!
The tissue itself
The tissue is soft, skin-friendly yet very strong. The softness and smoothness are very important when you are suffering from a running nose. I don't want to scratch my face when rubbing the tissue on my nose!
Besides, the wet strength of the tissues are much better than its counterparts in the market. You will not find the tissue disintegrated when it is damped. Having said that, I do not know how strong it can be when soaked in water. Maybe I should carry out an experiment and see how long it can last when soaked in water!
Would I repurchase it? Yes.
Would I recommend it to others? Yes.
This is the best pocket tissue I have found when I am suffering from running nose!
Summary: Try a pack of tempo pocket tissue when you suffer from running nose. You will love it.
