“ Brand: Argos / Type: Towels „
When I first moved into my own place just over a year ago I pretty much needed everything from scratch. I went from sharing a place to having my own (at the time!) lovely large and modern place and the one thing that I really wanted was a girly, bright pink bathroom. I wanted a new set of towels and my Mum bought me these and the matching bath sheets as a gift from Argos. These usually retail at £11.99 which is what my mum paid however at the moment these are available in all of the 'Colour Match' shades they sell for £9.99.
So you get 6 pieces in this bale and they came to me wrapped in a matching to the colour you opt for ribbon which is tied up in a bow. I remember seeing my towel bale and thinking wow they don't look very thick or plush but rather thin however the Funky Fuschia colour (bright pink) I did approve of and was very grateful for indeed!
These come in several colour options and there is pretty much a colour to suit most bathrooms in this range and those colours are Poppy Red, Jet Black, Super White, Lagoon, Aqua, Funky Fuschia, Purple Fizz, Apple Green and Ocean Blue and are a 100% cotton and the set includes 2 face cloths, 2 hand towels and 2 bath towels. They are fully machine washable and tumble dry safe but are not suitable for ironing but to be fair the creases drop out of these anyway very well indeed.
The face cloths measure Size L30, W30cm, the hand towels measure Size L90, W50cm and the bath towels measure Size L120, W70cm and if you know your sizes you will be aware that those sizes are pretty generous.
However for me these towels have been a total let down. Like I stated at the top of this review I was initially deterred by the thinness of these. They looked a fabulous colour, really rich and vibrant but were not soft and plush when I had them to begin with. They are pretty plain towels apart from an ingrained, silky ribbon detail to one side of them which I did appreciate as a bit of detail however through using them and washing them regularly I have found them to not be really soft against my skin, not as absorbent to use as I'd like and they colour faded ever so badly even though I only wash my towels on a 30C wash though they haven't shrunk or anything like that but they needed replacing about a couple of weeks really after I received them sadly.
I am not impressed by these at all which is a shame considering they're a really decent price and come initially in some great colour options and I won't be replacing these with the same again!
