Nicky Elite Toilet Tissue
Advantages: Fantastic value & good quality..
Disadvantages: None whatsoever..
I first came across the 'Nicky' brand of toilet tissue when I was on holiday in Spain and was booked into a lovely apartment on a self-catering basis. As I had to buy a few essential items for our temporary home, I made a trip to a local (independent) supermarket in the resort where we were staying. I didn't pay too much attention to the products I was buying as I didn't really recognise any of them at the time. That said, when it comes to toilet paper, I don't like using really cheap, poor quality products and find they can be uncomfortable to use and a bit of a waste of time.
The Nicky toilet tissue that I bought in Spain on this particular occasion appeared to be of a fairly decent quality and we used it throughout our holiday. I immediately recognised the product when I was shopping in a local (independent) grocery store and decided to give it another try out.
There were two different sized packs of the Nicky Elite Toilet Tissue on offer on this occasion; the small pack contains four rolls and cost £1.10 and the larger pack, which contains nine toilet rolls cost £2. I thought that the price of the toilet roll was really fantastic and compared to the prices of 'budget' or 'basic' supermarket branded products. I opted to buy the small pack of four rolls on this occasion.
There are several colour choices available to choose from within this brand of toilet roll, however the difference is minimal and I wouldn't have thought that colour co-ordinated bathrooms would have been overly mismatched as a result of choosing an alternative coloured roll. To explain, the background of each of the Nicky Elite toilet paper rolls is white in every case. The colour difference is noticeable by way of a diagonal pattern which criss-crosses over the white background to form a sort of 'diamond' design on the paper itself. The coloured line is very thin and the colour is very subtle and not at all garish and for me personally it is not imperative to purchase the corresponding colour to match my bathroom.
The colour choices available are blue (which matches my bathroom), peach, and white, which obviously has no colour as the background colour of the paper is also white. There may well be other colour choices available but if there are then I have never seen them.
I have found that the Nicky Elite Toilet Tissue is fairly soft and it is certainly softer and gentler to use than many of the budget-branded alternatives that I have tried out over the years. I would not go so far as to say it has a luxury or 'quilted' feel to it, but at the price I paid for the product I don't feel let down or disappointed at this. The toilet paper is certainly as soft as the usual 'middle of the road' supermarket-own branded product that I buy and I don't feel it is any better or worse than my usual purchase.
This particular brand of toilet tissue has a lotion added to it, or so the packaging claims. I have to be honest and admit that I have noticed to difference when using this product and I wouldn't have been aware of anything being added to the toilet paper if the packaging hadn't mentioned it.
Furthermore, the Nicky Elite Toilet Tissue is slightly scented, which would have put me off from trying out the product if I had read this on the packaging before trying it for myself. I am not particularly fond of highly-scented products. To be quite honest though, the fragrance on this toilet tissue is very subtle and I actually forget it is there once the toilet roll has been placed onto the holder in the bathroom.. I couldn't honestly say that I noticed the fragrance each and every time I use the toilet paper, but that's ok with me. The scent is pretty subtle and it smells to me like a sort of generic 'fresh' smell, perhaps one that is similar to a soap product or a laundry product. It's fine, but it's not the best selling point of this toilet tissue for me personally.
The Nicky toilet paper is 3-ply which is more than I am used to, given that the supermarket-own branded toilet roll that I normally buy is only 2-ply. I can't say that I notice any huge difference in this respect, but the Nicky toilet paper is certainly of an ample quality and thickness to cope with everything I need it to do. I don't feel that there is anything lacking in this paper's overall quality, and I am quite delighted at the great value for money that it offers me.
A quick online search indicates that a pack of Asda 'Shades' toilet roll costs £1.12 for a pack of two rolls, which is around the same price as I paid for the pack of Nicky toilet roll, so I am getting double the quantity for the same cost by purchasing the Nicky product and I am happy with the quality offered from the product for the low cost I had to pay.
The Nicky Elite Toilet Tissue is available to buy from Home Bargains and Farmfoods stores. I believe in both of these stores the prices for the toilet tissue are £1 for four rolls and £2 for nine rolls.
I regularly buy this brand of toilet tissue now and think it is worth recommending.. it definitely deserves top marks!!
Summary: A great value toilet tissue product that I would highly recommend.
