Advantages: Soft and durable, lightly scented, a taste of luxury
Disadvantages: None in my opinion
As far as I am concerned, toilet paper is not the most exciting of subject matters but nonetheless is a crucial household staple. I am not normally picky about the toilet paper I buy, tending to opt for whatever is on offer on the day I am buying and this means that I am not loyal to a particular brand. However, since buying a pack of Andrex Shea Butter luxury toilet paper, my mind may have been turned.
This toilet paper is part of the Andrex 'Touch of Luxury' range and this luxury reference is reflected in the packaging of this paper being presented in a brown wrapper which I found a slightly unusual colour choice compared to other products. The standard Andrex puppy adorns the front of the packaging and it is this image together with the Andrex title which alludes to this toilet paper being of good quality and from a renowned manufacturer.
In reference to this product, Andrex claim the following:
"Discover the perfect little way to pamper yourself with my Andrex® Touch of Luxury. Enriched with the silky softness of Shea Butter and with a scented inner core, it's a little luxury you deserve to treat yourself."
Tearing open the wrapper, I was pleasantly surprised with the scent of the toilet paper. I had been expecting the smell of shea butter to be quite strong; however the scent was subtle and only recognisable as shea butter when you delved your nose in for a good sniff. The toilet paper is slightly cream in colour and each sheet is ribbed with a number of lines producing a strong yet soft toilet paper.
As with all toilet rolls this one comes in a number of package sizes which include a pack of four, nine or twelve. I bought a pack of four being that there are only two of us living in my house and we get through toilet paper incredibly slowly, however larger pack sizes are often better value for money with larger households.
~~Price and Availability~~
As with all household goods it is well worth shopping around for the best deals in my opinion and this product is no different. I bought a set of four of these toilet rolls and paid £2 from my local Wilkinsons store. A look online reveals that this toilet roll is sold in the majority of supermarkets and household stores and you should expect to pay around £2-£3 for a pack of four rolls.
We have been using this toilet paper for the past couple of weeks and I have been impressed with both the quality and durability of this toilet paper. I must first address the luxury claim which I wholeheartedly agree with as this toilet paper is lightly scented and very soft with a creamy colour which differentiates it from other ranges. The colour of this toilet roll fits perfectly within my beige bathroom and for this it gets top marks from me. The quality of this toilet paper is very good and the soft feel combined with the slightly ribbed texture means that it lasts for longer than cheaper rolls. In addition the soft fragrance of shea butter is a nice feature as it is not too highly fragranced but rather only subtly so and this means that it does not irritate as other fragranced products can have the tendency to do.
As a result of my success with this toilet paper I will most likely be buying it again and I would therefore recommend it. As a result of the above this product scores an excellent five stars from me.
Thanks for reading! x
