Asda Pink Pearl Fabric Softener
Advantages: Cheap price.
Disadvantages: Doesn't give much smell to clothing. Not a lasting smell..
Having to save a few pennies now it is almost Christmas and I have a lot of presents to buy for my grandchildren, I am looking around for cheaper items so that I can save more money. This conditioner I spotted while shopping at Asda and so thought worth a purchase.
It comes housed in a plastic bottle which is pink and black colour, the top is pink and can be used for a measuring top. When I removed the top, I found this one didn't have much of a smell to it, it was only a slight smell of flowers but not much strength to it compared to the branded kind. I was a little disappointed in the smell but it is a shops own brand and I suppose it is to be expected to have a little less of a nice smell. I just wished it had more fragrance.
Only a capful is supposed to soften clothing, when I first used it I used a capful but when I took my clothes out of the machine I couldn't really smell much of a fragrance. It did however soften the clothes well enough but I found my towels didn't feel as soft as when I have used a branded conditioner. The towels felt a little rough and not at all fluffy. I hate it when my towels don't feel soft because my grandchildren sleep over at my home quite a lot and I do like my towels to be soft enough to dry their skin. This conditioner doesn't soften the towels enough so I had to use my branded conditioner for the towels I used for drying my grandchildren. I didn't want to just throw this product away in the bin and so I just then used it for my own clothing and fishing gear.
The bottle size is 735ml and only cost a £1, I don't think the quality is very good and I really don't think it is worth a £1 of my money. It is supposed to wash 21 wash loads but it didn't wash this amount because I had to pour more than a capful in my machine to even give a good enough amount of softness for my clothing. A waste of money and not one I like at all.
I won't be buying this one again and I don't really recommend it to anyone who likes a strong smell to their clothes. This one doesn't leave any nice smell on clothing and when I took my clothing from my wardrobe a few days later after washing them with this conditioner, I couldn't smell any smell at all on them except that they did smell clean.
I suppose if you are really on a very low budget, this one may be fine for you to save money but I do think you would be far better paying a few more pennies for one that gives a nicer smell to clothing and softens them much better than this one.
I only rate this one 2 stars.
Summary: Cheap price and no lasting smell on clothing.
