Comfort concentrate pure is a fabric conditioner that is hypoallergenic and dermatologically tested so is gentle to use even on babies clothes to leave them feeling soft and smelling fresh. The fabric softener is perfect for use on all types of fabric and is easy to use, simply by pouring it into the drawer in your washing machine.
The fabric softener is available to buy from all supermarkets and some local shops. I purchased this from my local Co-Op store where it was on offer for 2 bottles for £2.00. The bottles are the 750ml bottles. You can how-ever purchase a 1.5litre bottle and 5litre bottle. Prices may vary in different stores.
~ PACKAGING ~
The fabric conditioner comes in a clear plastic bottle which has a metallic white coloured lid. On the front of the bottle is a label with a baby asleep in a white flower and it states on the front that the fabric conditioner is Hypoallergenic & is dermatologically tested. It also states that the fabric conditioner will wash up to 21 washes. On the back bottle is another label which gives you a list of ingredients and details about the product. It also states how much product you need to use in with each wash and how to use the product. You can see the colour of the product inside the bottle which is white in colour.
~ USING THE PRODUCT ~
For normal loads of washing it advises you to use 35ml of the fabric softener. Simply pour the softener into the washing machine drawer and make sure you wash your hands after use. Do not pour the product directly onto fabrics. I put a normal load of washing into the washing machine and added my normal washing powder. I then poured the fabric softener into the lid from the top of the bottle and poured it into the drawer in the washing machine. The liquid is white and smells really fresh. It's a bit strong smelling the softener from the bottle, how-ever I was convinced that this was going to leave my clothes feeling soft and smelling great.
~ RESULTS ~
After the washing had washed and dried I took it out ready to fold up and put away. As soon as I started to pull the washing out of the machine I could smell the fresh smell from the fabric softener. The clothes smelt so fresh and clean, I was really impressed. I thought the towels came out of the wash feeling a lot softer. I loved the fact that the smell stayed on the clothes and even after changing the bed covers and putting clean ones on I could smell the fresh fragrance from the fabric softener, it was lovely. I suffer from sensitive skin and have eczema so I have to be careful when using new products. The softener didn't cause any irritation to my skin and left my clothes feeling soft and gentle against my skin.
~ OVERALL OPINION ~
I love the smell of this fabric softener and the way it leaves clothes feeling soft and smelling fresh, even after the washing has dried. Since I started using this softener I haven't even thought about using a different one as I know this one is kind to my skin and doesn't cause any irritation or bad reactions to my skin. I give this product 5 out of 5 stars as it smells clean and fresh and leave clothes feeling soft. I can't find any bad points about this product and it's really good value when it's on offer. I highly recommend this fabric softener to others, especially those who suffer from sensitive skin.

I never stick to the same brand of fabric conditioner, I tend to opt for the ones that are on offer. The one I'm currently using is Comfort Concentrate Pure. I bought a 750ml bottle from Netto for 99p. As its £1.80 in Tesco I thought it was a bargain.
The bottle is clear plastic so you always know how much is left, I like that. The label on the front is almost teardrop shaped and is mainly white with a pale blue border. Most of the label is taken up with a cute picture of a sleeping baby and the words Comfort Concentrate Pure. It also tells us that you should get 21 washes from the bottle. The label also shows the British Skin Foundation logo confirming that this softener is pure and kind to skin. Comfort Pure is hypoallergenic and dermatological tested.
The bottle has a simple screw top lid which doubles up as a measuring cup.
On the back of the label you will find the usual warnings associated with this sort of product :- keep away from children and keep away from your eyes. The instructions for use are also on the back of the label.
6-7g of laundry------- 1 full measure
4-5g of laundry--------¾ of a measure
Hand Wash-------------¼ of a measure
Never pour directly onto fabrics always use the drawer in your machine.
The back of the label also tells us that Comfort Pure is part of the Cleaner Planet Plan by using over 50% less packaging than regular Comfort.
The actual liquid is a creamy white colour, it looks a bit like slightly thick milk. The smell is absolutely delicious. Its flowery but not overpowering. It reminds me of talcum powder. Its fresh and delicate.
When I got my laundry out of the machine I was pleased with how it felt. The clothes all felt soft, they smelt clean and fresh and still had the lovely flowery fragrance.
A few days later I got a T shirt out to wear and I could still smell the Comfort in the material. It really does remind me of a lovely delicate talcum powder. The fragrance lasted on my clothes for 2 days then it faded away.
Living up to its "Pure" name neither my fiancé or myself had any irritation or redness of skin after using this.
Over all I was pleased with the Comfort Pure, it left all m y laundry, particularly the towels, soft and fragrant.
I would be happy to recommend this product to anyone. The smell is lovely but delicate. Also as its concentrated you will be doing your bit for the Cleaner planet Campaign which has to be a good thing.
I have just bought a Tesco own, two in one washing powder and conditioner. It has worked rather well, but does this now mean I won't ever buy my trusted Comfort again? I always used to use Comfort, but maybe the days of a separate conditioner are becoming numbered.
Comfort is a liquid that you add to your washing machine to ensure your clothes come out soft and bouncy. If you use a powder on its own, the clothes are stiffer and don't smell as good. This has a mild scent, a delicate hint of perfume about it, but nothing outrageous that it upsets the nose. I use Comfort with towels, bed linen and items that you really want to be extra soft. I am not so bothered about having tea towels soft or socks, so it gets used on certain clothing items only.
When I use this, I usually pour about three quarters of a capful into the washing machine drawer then do a forty degree wash. If you are literally washing one or two items, then a dash of the stuff will suffice. Likewise, a full wash might need a full capful. This all depends on the individual and how soft you like your clothes.
Does it work though? Yes it does. Clothes always come out with an added softness and a good degree of bounce. There is a lovely oomph about them and they dry quicker and also iron better when I use Comfort. A 1.5 litre bottle should cost no more than two pounds and it usally lasts me for a month. It is one of the best performing fabric conditioners that I have tried and I probably will start to buy it again, but my current two in one Tesco tablets do come quite close to matching Comfort, but perhaps lacks that final luxurious finesse that Comfort does provide.
I usually buy supermarket own brand fabric conditioner. My son has quite sensitive skin, so I can't buy anything too fragranced and fancy anyway. However, when my son was first born I was given loads of free samples of washing powder and fabric conditioners. One of them was Comfort Concentrate Pure, which is marketed as being sensitive enough for baby's skin. I liked the results from the sample enough to buy a full sized bottle.
Comfort Pure is hypoallergenic and has been dermatologically tested. A little logo on the bottle informs me that the British Skin Foundation validate Comfort Pure's research into skin care. This was enough to initially assure me that the fabric conditioner should not cause any nasty allergic reactions. Thankfully this has proved to be the case.
I bought a 1.5 litre bottle when it was on special offer at £2.00. It usually retails at £2.99. Unilever claim that a 1.5 litre bottle of this concentrated fabric conditioner is sufficient for 42 normal sized loads. A little of this fabric conditioner certainly goes a long way. However, I haven't been counting the number of loads to be able to validate the manufacturer's claims. I like buying concentrated products because the bottles are so much smaller, saving much needed space under my sink. This is particularly true for fabric conditioners, which can come in enormous bottles.
Half a cap (35ml) of this liquid is sufficient to condition a normal load. You are advised to use a full cap (55ml) for large loads or for "extra softness and freshness". I have only ever used half a cap. My one criticism of the packaging is that it is really difficult to see the line around the cap that indicates half a capful. This means that it is easy to use more than you need.
Despite only adding a small amount of fabric conditioner to my loads, I have been really impressed with the results. My laundry has been left nice and soft and static free. However, the main benefit has been the lovely subtle fragrance, which I think is a bit like jasmine. I don't think that Comfort provides any more softness than my usual supermarket own brand, but the fragrance is certainly longer lasting.
Comfort Concentrate Pure is a reasonably priced fabric conditioner, which delivers soft and fresh smelling clothes to those of us with sensitive skin. I would recommend it.
Comfort Pure Concentrate Fabric Conditioner
In one of my pregnancy packs I received a free sample of this fabric conditioner so I thought I would give it a go. As it is only a trial size I received it only done three washes. The bottle size was 100ml so you roughly put 33ml into each wash.
**WHAT IT IS**
This is a product conditioner, which should leave your clothes feeling soft and smelling fresh. It should help the condition of your clothes leaving them looking newer for longer.
It is hypoallergenic and dermatologically tested so it should be king to skin. It is also validated by the British Skin Foundation so this can give you added peace of mind.
The sample I received looks very similar to the normal size you would buy from the shop. The bottle is made out of plastic and is see-through in colour. It is a durable bottle, which won't get damaged easily so hopefully none of your conditioner will leak.
Even the label attached to the bottle that gives you information on the product is plastic so it won't peel off if it gets wet. On the front there is a teardrop with a baby inside that is sleeping. It has the Comfort logo in light blue and all inside the teardrop is blue. Small round things that look like white roses to me are floating about the baby's head. So it looks a light and fluffy like the baby is sleeping in the clouds. There is the British Skin Foundation stamp in the left-hand corner, which is clear for you to see.
The back is darker blue in colour and gives you all the technical details on how to use the product. Information on how to contact the company is also provided here. Plus you will find the ingredients, which may be useful, if you are allergic to any of them.
Comfort fabric conditioner contains amongst other ingredients; 5-15% Cationic surfactants, <5% Non-ionic surfactants, Perfume, Benzisothiazolinone
This is very vague for ingredients however if you are allergic to or can't use any of these ingredients as they irritate your skin it would be helpful to know.
The fabric conditioner itself is a pearly white colour and is not overly thick in consistency. It will pour into your washing machine very easily.
I got a 100ml-size bottle and it did three washes so it takes roughly 33ml for each load of washing you do. To use you just pour that amount into the fabric conditioner compartment in your washing machine. Before you put it in shake it slightly as some separation may occur if it is left sitting for a while.
After you are finished with the product wash your hands. Make sure to not get it into your eyes if contact does occur, make sure you rinse your eye well with water straight away.
When storing the conditioner have it in temperatures between 5 degrees Celsius and 10 degrees Celsius. Also make sure that children can not reach, as it would be dangerous if they got a hold of it.
I feel that this is a good conditioner as it does what it says. It makes your clothes softer and smell nice. The smell is nice and fresh. I would describe it as breezy and a light smell. It's not too perfumed and it isn't overpowering.
I have sensitive skin and this product doesn't seem to irritate my skin, which I feel is good. Some other conditioners leave my skin itchy and it goes red. Thankfully this product doesn't give me these size effects so I am happy to use it again.
In Tesco this product costs £2 on offer (its usually £3) for a 1.5L bottle that will do 42 washes. On offer this costs just under 50 pence per wash and when its not on offer its just over 70 pence a wash. I think this is good value for money.
You can be guaranteed that it will be kind to sensitive skin and it will leave your clothes in better condition. I will definitely be buying this product again.
I always use fabric softener in the wash because I am particularly smelly and washing powder alone will not get rid of my stink from clothes! This concentrated fabric softener from Comfort really manages to mask my BO and so it has now got to the stage where I cannot wear clothing unless it has been washed in comfort! In all honesty, it does make clothes smell cleaner in my opinion, and I am sure it is not because I am smelly!
I did not use to use concentrated fabric softeners because they were more expensive but I am a sucker for advertising and after the recent onslaught of adverts about reducing the packaging and the lorries on the roads and hence carbon emissions, I felt guilt-tripped into buying concentrated fabric softener when I went to the supermarket.
Although it was more expensive, I have to say it has lasted really really well. we hardly ever seem to buy replacements. Whereas when I was using ordinary fabric softener we were buying a bottle each week - mainly because I used to have to use so much of it to get rid of those pongs!
Comfort concentrated fabric softener has a lovely fresh smell that makes the whole house fragrant when you use it in your machine. The clothes are soft, easy to iron and as you are ironing you get little wiffs of the delicate smell.
I would recommend it!
I have always used fabric softeners in my wash and have usually stuck to Comfort or Lenor, whichever was on offer at the time of buying!
My husband has always had sensitive skin, bless him, but in recent years it has become more of a problem as he has had bouts of urticaria. To try and help him combat this I decided to change my washing powder and fabric softener to the non bio or pure variety.
I now usually use Persil Non Bio Tablets and Comfort Pure Fabric Softener, although I do try some of the other non bio versions when they're on offer!
At the moment I am using Comfort Concentrated Pure fabric softener and it's lovely!
Comfort Pure is available in a concentrated version and a standard version and I am quite happy to buy either, depending on which has the best offer at the time. The only real difference is in the consistency of the products and the amount you have to use to get your soft, fresh washing but, apart from that, I find that either product will give me the same excellent results.
Comfort Pure was originally formulated to be used on baby clothes. The theory is that the fibres in the material tangle making the clothes itchy to wear and Comfort Pure smoothes them back out again this making them soft and comfortable next to baby's skin.
This is all very well but why should it be just the babies who get the nice soft clothes?
So what is Comfort Pure like then?
The container is plastic, so it can be recycled, and is white with the Comfort logo in blue across the front.
Well the liquid itself is a pearlescent white in colour and it slightly thicker than the standard fabric softener. This is because it is concentrated and so you don't need to use as much in your wash.
It has a light fragrance which is difficult to describe. I think the best way I can put it is to say that it is slightly floral, fresh and clean. I know it sounds silly to describe a smell as 'clean' but it is an effective description. Well I think so anyway!
You just place the fabric softener in the special drawer in your washing machine using the cap of the bottle as your measure and away you go. You will need about 35ml for a 4-5kg normal load or about 55ml for a 6 -7kg large load or if you want your washing to be extra soft and extra fresh. If you are doing some hand washing 18ml in 10l of water will do the trick.
As soon as you open the door of the washing machine after the washing cycle has finished you will notice the fragrance again. The washing smells clean and fresh.
I don't use a tumble dryer and I rarely bother to peg my washing outside. I am really idle and either hang it over the radiators or over the airer. This has the effect of perfuming the whole house as the fragrance wafts around as the clothes dry.
The washing feels softer than if no fabric softener had been used and the freshness remains within the fibres of the material even after the clothes have been stored for a while. So when I fetch a t shirt out of the drawer to put it on I can still smell the light fresh fragrance of Comfort Pure.
Since it is specifically designed with babies in mind and it is dermatologically tested and hypoallergenic there is unlikely to be any adverse reaction when anyone wears the washed clothes.
A 750ml plastic (recycleable) bottle will currently cost you £1.29 in Tesco's and will freshen 21 washes.
Apparently it is the only fabric softener working in conjunction with the National Childbirth Trust and its research into skincare is supported by the British Skin Foundation.
All in all I would recommend this fabric softener and it has certainly made our washing smell fresh and it has helped keep down the irritation to hubby's skin too.
