Normally I have Tesco's boxes of tissues, and on occasion, Kleenex, particularly if there is a good offer but at this point in time I had an annoying cold which meant I was getting through tissues really quickly and needed a replacement. This box of Sainsbury's Ultrabalm Soft Tissues is what I found in Saisbury's Local near me. It cost £1.89 which is 20p more than in a normal store which is a bit cheeky.
The first thought I had with these is what a odd colour. I like boxes of tissues in colours like cream and so on, neutral colours, so they don't clash with anything if possible. These were a odd greeny-yellow colour which I didn't take to. I wished that they had given us a choice of colours. Then it hit me why they wanted these colours and it's because they are trying to fool the customer into thinking they are Kleenex or almost identical to them as Kleenex use very similar colourings in their products. So though I don't like it, at least I understand it.
There are 90 tissues in each box. Funnily enough all the information is on one side and the hole on the other so all the information is on the underside of the box. What has impressed me about these tissues is their quality. Before buying these, I finished up a box of Kleenex ultra-balm so am in an excellent position to compare. When I used these I could generally feel the balm in the tissues. They feel soft to pick up and soft when you use them on your nose. This is particularly important when you have a cold and are using many tissues within a short space of time as you can irritate your nose but these did not make it sore at all. They also don't disintegrate which is a very good aspect!
