Charmin Toilet Tissue
Advantages: Soft, strong, easy to start the roll
Disadvantages: There's just as good for cheaper
Charmin is a toilet roll which has recently been renamed as Cushelle however they are one in the same product. A couple of months ago there was a offer on the Cushelle Facebook page where if you liked the page then they would send you a coupon for a free 4 roll pack, not one to pass up on a free item I liked the page and have recently used my free pack.
The pack in my opinion is easy to spot and quite cute, the wrapper is see through in parts but also has a lot of lilac and purple on which looks really nice together and then a picture of a cute little Koala. The packet promises cushion softness, give you details for if you are not happy and tells you there are 4 rolls in the pack each one having 180 2 ply tissues on it and each one measures 120 x 104.5mms just if you were wondering!
The packet is pretty much like all toilet roll where you simply rip the packet to open it and then inside are 4 white toilet rolls, the rolls as a whole are rather soft and when you squeeze them they bounce back. It is easy to peel back the first sheets of the roll which is great as some toilet rolls I have tried you have wasted the first few sheets trying to start the roll.
Cushelle is available in normal rolls and supersized rolls and it comes in a variety of pack sizes too, in normal rolls you can get 4, 9, 12, 16, 18, 24 and 32 roll packs and in the supersize where each roll is apparently double the size of a normal roll you get pack sizes of 4, 6 and 9 rolls.
I find that the toilet roll is pretty soft however I have felt softer, the toilet roll is absorbent so you use less than the really cheap rolls and you don't end up putting your finger through the sheet as it is strong. The sheets are easy to tear off the rolls as it has really good perforations however it is not really any better than Asda or Tescos own version of toilet rolls and I don't see any reason to pay extra for them.
These rolls score 4 out of 5 with me simply because you can buy cheaper which is just as good, a 4 roll pack of these will cost you £2.18 but compared to Asdas shades which are only £1.78 it is a fair difference especially in our house where we go through loads of toilet roll.
Summary: A decent product but there's cheaper
