      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Don't like this much at all

      Anyone who reads my reviews on a regular basis will know that I am a frequent Tesco shopper and generally speaking, I rate a lot of their own brand products very highly indeed, as they present both excellent value for money as well as being of very high quality. Of course, there are always exceptions to the rule, and in this case it is Tesco's Value Toilet Paper. I have tried this once and I can honestly say that I would never buy it again (unless it was an emergency and the world only produced this toilet paper and nothing else). This toilet paper has been available to buy in Tesco's for ages now and forms part of their bog standard basic range. As such, the packaging of this product is extremely 'no frills' and is plain and simple to look at. The packaging contains no illustrations of little dogs or pictures of soft bottles, instead, it is basically clear and transparent with the Tesco logo and wording on the front. I paid only 67p for four rolls, which was very competitively priced. The rolls boasted that they are two-ply and as such, I did imagine them to be thicker and more substantial than they actually tuned out to be. These rolls seem very small compared to the usual toilet rolls I buy. They are also rather loosely rolled and I am guessing this is in order to make the rolls not only look larger and after, but also to make the user think that the rolls are soft and bouncy and comfortable on your bot. This toilet paper is scratchy and rough and feels terrible on your bottom. It is especially uncomfortable of you have the runs and have to keep on popping back to the loo several times in a day and you can end up with a very sore bottom very quickly indeed. The paper is made from 100% recycled materials and it is not the nice white colour of my usual toilet paper, but more of an off-white cream colour with numerous little grey looking flecks in it. I am afraid that overall I cannot rate this particular toilet paper very highly indeed. It leave me feeling uncomfortable, it feels think and cheap, it's a nasty colour and it's not very absorbent at all and certainly doesn't feel like 'normal' two-ply toilet paper. Don't go rushing out to buy it.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        No. Just No.

        When it comes to what I wipe my bum on, I have usually tended to buy the cheapest product available due to budget restrictions, and one of the items I have most commonly purchased is Tesco Value Toilet Paper, which costs 67p for 4 rolls, £1.97 for six double length rolls, both of which work out to £0.08 pence per 100 sheets. The fact that I'm listing the price so precisely may seem (pardon the pun) a bit anal but after moving house our budget for grocery shopping was drastically reduced whilst we purchased needed items of furniture, and also due to a tax credits mix up, now resolved. The tissue is 2 ply, and is a white colour with little specks in it. I believe this toilet paper is recycled, not (heaven forbid) in the sense that someone has wiped with it before, but rather that this is where old copies of the Daily Mail end up (best place for it, in my opinion). It has quite a rough texture, being covered in lots of tiny dimples. I'm not sure what the dimples are for - added grip? Additional scrubby power? Who knows, but the overall effect is that this feels a little rough on my delicate behind, especially after a spicy kebab. It also feels very thin - although it is 2 ply, the 2 layers seem to separate themselves during usage, and one more than one occasion this has resulted in an unfortunate finger incident. Because of this, I felt I had to use more to get the job done properly. Tesco cunningly place this on the roll quite loosely making them feel soft and squishy if you give them a pinch. They do the job I suppose, and they really helped us make savings when we needed to, but these are not a brand I would use for any other reason than financial necessity. Luckily, our budget has now increased enough for us to purchase the next level up of Tesco tissue, and even to occasionally purchase Andrex from the corner shop in dire emission emergencies. Overall, I'm going to give this 2 stars. Nobody likes the unfortunate feeling of a finger breaking through, or of trying to soothe the after curry 'ring sting' with something that feels a little like sandpaper. Whilst this probably wins on price-per-poop, it loses to the next level up in softness, appearance, and durability. Not recommended.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Very poor value for money and an unpleasant experience.

        I have been trying to keep my shopping costs way down and as a result have been exploring the value ends of supermarket ranges rather than their normal own brands. I also had to make the long trek to the big Tesco to collect some cheesy deliciousness from Bzz and did not have the car to lug a big shop home, as it is down at my Dad's at the moment. As a result, I saw this tiny four pack of toilet roll. I saw a price of 67p for all four. It was smaller than the usual brands and supermarket packs and as such easy to drag home on foot. I bought it. And have been regretting it ever since. The rolls are not as wide as normal, and the shrinking of the product size is not marginal. It is significant and when combined with the thinness of the two-ply paper itself means that even a small person needs three squares where one or two of the good stuff would suffice. Man Size this most certainly is not. Children and those with sensitive skin are also likely to protest. My sensitive skin certainly hates it. The paper is scratchy and rough where no one would want scrachy or rough, let alone both. There is also only 200 sheets per roll, which when added to the mean 115mmx96mm size of the sheets and the thinness of each means that it really does not last, even when there is only one person using it. Family friendly, not so much. On the upside, the paper is labelled as from responsible sources. However, there are responsible and sustainable toilet paper alternatives which are longer, softer and a lot more comfortable. The packaging is prettier than the one shown, even if it is a mosiac of people and toilets in blues on white. That is, however, pretty much the only point in this product's favour. As it fails the most important reason I bought it. Value For Money. Which this product does not deliver. You do pay less. You also get a lot less product, have to use more per visit and the experience of using it is not pleasant. There are better products out there and they can be found at reasonable prices if one hunts for deals. go for those instead. I will in future.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Great all round product

          For a long time now I have been using this toilet roll, as I hate the expense of spending on something that to be fair is used for seconds and flushed down the toilet. With some of the more expensive brands I feel like that is exactly what I am doing flushing my hard earned money away. I started using this when my daughter developed and allergy to the aloe Vera one I used to buy and so many of them seem to have shea butter or other lotions on them that I thought I would just try a plain one and see if that helped. I was really impressed with the price as you get 6 rolls for £1.96 and all the rolls are double length. The tissue itself is quite soft I was expecting the feel of the tracing paper from school days but it did feel nice and like a more expensive brand. It is quite thick and so far I haven't put my fingers through it, which repulses me I like to be able to use a product the purpose intended without it letting me down. The first week of my daughter using it her rash cleared up and we have never gone back to any other brand. The only criticism I have is my toilet roll holder is quite small so when a new roll is put on it can be a little difficult to get any but that's because they are all double rolls and much thicker than other brands. I don't find myself using more than I usually would and they seem to last a long time for each roll. This is a great product if your watching the pennies it's cheap and serves the purpose intended. I would also recommend it highly to people with allergies to the lotions that are often put on more expensive brands, as this is a great alternative.

          My husband brought back this packet of toilet roll when he went shopping- I knew there was a reason why I normally am the one to go shopping! He said he bought it because it was very cheap and what was the point in spending more money on something which you just use to flush down the toilet. When we used it we could both see exactly why we do spend money on something which you just flush down the toilet! This toilet tissue is awful! In the pack you got 12 rolls and it was no frills so the packaging was really boring and the tissue roll was worse. It is kind of off-white in colour which isn't appealing in the first place, it's not as if it's cream but more like a dirty white. It is very rough to touch, it didn't feel it at first but then when we used it it was. Even blowing our noses on this would hurt as it's so rough, it's definitely not gentle against skin. The pieces of tissue don't stay together so although it's got two pieces of tissue thick it doesn't really come like this as they fall away from each other. It is also not very absorbent you end up needing to use more of it to make it absorbent but it's also rough so it's not very nice to use at all. We used this and then didn't buy anymore! It is really not a nice kind of toilet roll at all and I can see why it's mainly only students who buy this now. I guess it's nice that there are cheaper alternatives for people but this isn't something I'll be buying again!

            Excellent toilet roll for the price

            I hate spending a fortune on toilet roll, ever since moving into my own house 4 years ago I have always bought value toilet roll and it has never let me down yet! I pay £1.96 for a pack of 6 toilet rolls, which are actually double length, so you get a lot more on a roll than a normal value range toilet roll. They come in clear basic packaging, which is easily ripped open, and they are all white, this toilet roll doesn't come in any other colours. The only thing I can fault this toilet roll with is when you start a new roll, it can be quite hard to get the first piece off the start off the roll. It is stuck down so that when you pull on end it ends up tearing through the toilet roll, so you have to gently pull it off the whole way across to avoid this. It can be a bit fiddly at times, but doesn't cause too much hassle. The actual toilet roll itself is no way near as soft as expensive toilet rolls, but it isn't rough to wipe with either. I don't find it irritates and it doesn't feel uncomfortable to use. I have just got used to it now after using it so many years! I do find though, that you have to use slightly more of this than you would a thicker, more expensive loo roll, you need a lot more for it to absorb well as it is quite thin. We can easily go through a roll a day in our house, sometimes more, so for the price we can't complain with this toilet roll. It is adequate for our needs, it never tears when using it, it doesn't feel amazingly soft when using it, but doesn't feel horrible either, it just does the job we need it to do nicely. You can also get this toilet roll in a pack of 4, which I don't buy as we go through so many, I think this pack of 4 though is around £1, I am not sure, but very cheap to try if you wanted to. I don't think this toilet roll looks cheap when in my bathroom, it's just a roll of white toilet paper, and you cannot tell it is from the value range at all, although I do use the double length ones which make the rolls a lot bigger, the 4 pack which is not double length, to me does look cheap. I definitely recommend this toilet roll if you are on a budget, I have never had a problem with it and for less than £2 for 6 good size rolls it is great value and I will continue to purchase in the future!

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Not very appealing, not something I'll be buying again.

              Every now and then I enter into on a Tesco Value craze, buying everything from the Value range. Usually it's due to a lack of funds - being a student, this is a common scenario - but often I'll buy Value because I feel the quality of a lot of the products isn't actually that bad. When it comes to items like bin bags, cloths, kitchen roll, etc. the quality is completely acceptable, and this is made sweeter by the great prices they're available at. Tesco Value Toilet Tissue is one of the less appealing items in the range, I'm afraid. In the area of personal hygiene it's quite essential to buy products that work well, and in the case of toilet roll, ones that are soft and comfortable against the skin. These are not comfortable. The tissue fabric is rugged to the touch, lightly corrugated, stiff. It feels dry and unhealthy when pressed against your skin. Similarly, the tissues are not very absorbent and many are needed to successfully clean up a spillage of any kind. The tissues come in packs of 6 rolls, giving you plenty of the stuff for the price: £1.96, which sounds a lot, but that works out at just 8 pence per 100 sheets! The sheets are small squares and more than one is needed for each wipe, but that is still very cheap in my book! The packaging has changed from that shown in the Dooyoo image. It is still a see-through plastic wrap, but the colouring is light and dark blue instead of red, and small graphics of toilets and other related items have been printed on the front. 'Everyday Value' seems to be the new phrase Tesco have adopted to help promote their cheap alternatives to company brands. Company brands like Velvet and Andrex focus their advertising on telling us how soft and absorbent their tissues are - two descriptives Tesco Value tissues lack considerably. All in all I am not very impressed with these tissues at all - the only thing they have going for them is their price, and even that could be a little better if I'm complete honest. They are uncomfortable and un-absorbent. They last a long time but something that you don't like lasting a long time isn't particularly a good thing! RATING: 1.7/5 PRICE: £1.96 (8 p per 100 sheets) AVAILABILITY: tesco.com / in stores across the UK.

              budget toilet paper, but not the best value for money!

              Toilet paper is one of those things that I hate spending my money on, so I always try and find a god cheap one, rather than paying lots of money for the bigger brands such as Andrex. The problem with this is that a lot of the budget brands of toilet paper are quite thin, so you end up having to use more than you normally would anyway and therefore it doesnt save you any money in the long run as you have to buy twice as much. This toilet paper is just that - a bit too thin, but then it is tesco everyday value toilet paper afterall - so I dont really know what I was expecting. I purchased a pack of 6 - which cost me around £1.30 which is very cheap for 6 toilet rolls! The packaging is very basic, clear with the tesco everyday vallue logo on the front. The toilet claims to be 2 ply, which it is (its just quite thin). The one good thing about this toilet paper however is that it is quite soft. Normally I would expect toilet paper so cheap to be a bit on the rough and scratchy side (like the cheap toilet paper you get in public toilets) but this one actually feels quite soft to touch - which is nice. Overall, although it is really cheap - I wouldnt recommend this toilet paper. I find that it is really thin and that I have to use twice as much as I normally would and therefore it costs me more money in the long run as I have to go out and buy more sooner than I would like. For anyone looking for a bargain toilet paper I would suggest buying 'SpringForce' from tesco. You can't miss it on the shelves it comes in a bright coloured floral packaging - at £1.98 for 9 rolls its a bargain, and its thicker and softer than you would expect! I give this toilet paper 3 stars - I would have given it two but since it is quite soft I think it deserves 3.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              A bad, value toilet roll.

              Toilet paper is one of those things that you have to buy on a regular basis, however much money you have (although my friend did tell me a fairly depressing story of being so poor a few years ago that they had to steal toilet paper from their university toilets). Since my flatmates and I are usually fairly strapped for cash, as up till now we've all been students, we tend to prioritise price over quality when it comes to toilet roll. As we lived near Tesco and it was the supermarket we frequented most often, we inevitably gave their value toilet roll a try. As it was almost certainly the cheapest toilet paper available, we could save a lot of money if it was good enough, and so thought that we may as well try it out and see. == What I Thought == We didn't buy it again. While some Tesco Value or Asda Smart Price or other supermarket equivalent items are good and often just as good as more expensive brands (tinned, chopped tomatoes being a perfect example), this toilet roll was clearly poorer value. While it was fully functional, you did have to use more of it than you would better quality toilet paper, which slightly negates the cost benefits. It was also not particularly soft and it was quite uncomfortable to use. While it wasn't as bad as raspy paper you sometimes find in public toilets, it also wasn't as nice as branded toilet paper that emphasises softness. == Conclusion == I was disappointed with this toilet paper and never wanted to use it again. I recently reviewed Springforce toilet roll, which, as well as being very good value at £2 for 9 rolls, is also good quality. At 12 rolls for £1.49 it is very cheap, but it's definitely worth spending a little bit more to have something that's actually decent quality, in my view.

                Disadvantages

                An okay value toilet roll

                I started buying Tesco value toilet tissue when I went on maternity leave and we had to adjust to being on a much lower income. I thought I'd try cheaper products in the hope that some would be good enough for me to continue buying. I had always bought Andrew toilet roll in the past so this was a big down shift for us and one my husband wasn't particularly keen on. We agreed to use this cheap one just in the downstairs toilet to start with to see how we got on. Everyday value? Tesco have recently relaunched their value range as Everyday Value which has meant a changes other than just the improved packaging for this toilet tissue. It used to be available in a 12 pack but now you have the option of a 4 pack or double length 6 pack. I currently have a 4 pack which gives you an average of 200 sheets per roll and each sheet is 2 ply. The sheet size is 115mm x 96mm which is very small when compared to Andrex so you do end up using more. The sheets also feel thin to the touch which again makes you use an extra sheet or 2. Packaging As expected with a value product these toilet rolls are just wrapped in a mainly clear plastic which is easy to tear open. It tells you basic information about the product and has the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) logo on it which guarantees that it comes from a well managed forest. How soft is it? I think this toilet tissue is pretty good when it comes to softness, it hasn't got that rough texture to it that you get from some cheap toilet roll which is a definite bonus as I don't think I would have carried on buying it if that had been the case. Is it strong? Not really, it starts to disintegrate when it gets wet so it needs to be used and quickly thrown away. The perforations are easily torn apart so no complaints in that area and it is fairly easy to start a new roll by just ripping above where the glue sticks the end down. Price and Availability These toilet rolls are available from Tesco stores and Tesco groceries online costing 70p for the 4 pack and £1.96 for the double length 6 pack. The previous 12 pack only used to cost approx £1.49 so not as much of a value product as it used to be! Would I recommend? At the previous price I would have recommended but I'll be on the look out for other cheap toilet rolls when I've finished this current pack. These toilet rolls just about do the job.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                A false economy in the long run

                Although I try and economise wherever I can when doing the weekly shop there are just some products that are essentials and it doesn't pay to scrimp too much. Toilet paper is one of these and although I have previously bought Tesco value toilet paper it turned out to be a false economy and it isn't something that I would really consider buying for the house again. The Tesco value toilet paper is a lot cheaper than the more premium brands of toilet paper and you do get a lot more in the packet for your money. It costs 70 pence for 4 rolls and has been rebranded as Everyday Value instead of just the old Value branding. As soon as you touch the paper you can feel the difference in quality between this and the better brands and although it isn't anywhere near as bad as that horrible toilet paper you sometimes find in public toilets it isn't exactly luxurious either. Using the toilet paper isn't as nice as with other brands either as it is a little rough and scratchy when you wipe yourself with it. It is also really thin and this is my biggest problem with it. Because it is so thin it actually works out as a bit of a false economy as you end up using so much more each time than you would with thicker more luxurious paper. It ends up getting used twice as quickly as more expensive brands so in the end it would probably be better to just pay double and get some nicer toilet rolls. My kids went through so much of this every time they went to the loo that I was constantly replacing the roll in the holder on a daily basis. They also complained about the feeling of it as they were used to the nicer rolls. I wouldn't say this is a horrible toilet roll and if money is really tight then using this won't be a complete hardship but if you can afford a little bit more then you can buy some thicker more luxurious rolls that feel nicer to use and last a lot longer than these ones.

                Disadvantages

                Avoid!

                I never thought I would write a review on loo roll but here we go ;) **Price and Availability** The price seems to vary from North to South and online / offline as far as I can see but at the moment here in Manchester a four roll pack of Tesco Value Toilet Roll costs £1.31. It is also available in a twelve pack. It is available only instore at Tesco and at Tesco.com (delivery charge applies, minimum spend £25). **Looks** Currently in my store it's still packaged and sold as Tesco Value in a clear plastic wrapper with the red and blue Tesco Value logo on it but I've heard they're going to rebrand this 'Everyday Essentials' as they think people are are too embarrassed to buy Tesco Value! Well personally I'm not bothered but looking at Everyday Essentials packaging it is admittedly nicer. **The Tissue** Value it's called, and value it looks. It's no 'puppies on a roll', that's for sure, and whilst you expect no gimmicks in a value range item, it's obviously very basic. It's a two ply tissue, pretty rough feeling, and ever so thin. I generally like to use loo roll for everything (including it's intended purpose, I mean), like blowing my nose, with cleanser to get my eye makeup off, wiping my toddler's face and so on. I can't use Tesco Value Toilet Tissue for that - she visibly winces, it's so rough! I wouldn't say it has much absorbency either, the net result being that you end up using more and needing to replace it quicker. It's just a cheap tissue, basically, on a roll. I'm no snob but it's too cheap for me. **What Price Value Anyway?** At £1.31 for four rolls, is it that cheap? You can buy a three ply loo roll in Poundland for £1 for four rolls, it's a no-brainer. I think sometimes in supermarkets they make things just that much cheaper than the nearest alternative, stick Value or Basics or whatever on the front and money savers will pick them up thinking it's a great deal without really thinking what else is out there. You can get, for example, a 12 roll pack of 'Nifty' three ply loo roll from Home Bargains for £2.99, and a 9 roll pack for £1.99, also at B&M Bargains and Poundstretcher. Sometimes you need to shop around, but you really don't need to compromise on quality to this level just to save a few pounds. **Overall** So, to recap - it's not actually amazing value for money. It's incredibly uncomfortable, and in fact such poor quality that you end up using more of it to compensate. I think this product out of all Value products is one of the worst I've used personally. It's just not worth it. Even if you are on an incredibly small budget, you're a student, you're camping - it's cheaper to go to Poundland and you'll get a better product - it's not often you can say that, but in this case this is true. If you are absolutely desperate - absolutely - and this is your only option, then yes, it's preferable to no tissue paper, or using newspaper... just!!

                Bog roll? You can bog off!!!

                I am not an overly fussy person about what type of toilet roll I use as it is always going to be for the same purpose, and at the end of the day, it's only going to be flushed down the loo! I normally buy a supermarket own brand toilet roll but a few weeks ago I thought I would try the Value version. After all, we're all tightening our belts in life at the moment! The toilet rolls are packaged in a very thin soft plastic packet. It is very easy to tear through the pack to get to the rolls. The pack contains 4 toilet rolls and there are 400 sheets on each roll. The cost for the 4 rolls is £1.31 so it is quite cheap compared to other brands. However, I do think the cost of the product might explain the poor quality of the paper. As I said earlier, I'm not that fussy when it comes to the paper, but I also don't want to use something that is quite nasty to use. The rolls are 2 ply but feel so thin to the touch. You might end up using more sheets of this roll than you would a normal one which defeats the object in paying a cheaper price for the roll as you will get through it quicker. The paper looks quite rough and if you look closely you can see little flecks in the paper. There were funny creases throughout all of the rolls which I couldn't understand. They felt very rough in my hands and not soft at all. The paper is so weak that it disintegrates as soon as it is wet. I find that the quality of this paper is very poor, it is not worth paying the cheaper price as you end up using more paper. It just wasn't a good experience and I won't be purchasing again.

                  A good toilet roll for the price

                  For a long while when me and my husband did the weekly shop we would always buy Tesco discount brand toilet roll, I refuse to spend out a lot of money on something that just gets flushed down the toilet, however one week they had sold out of the discount version so we had to buy an alternative. After looking along the shelves a lot of the brands were very expensive and in my opinion a total waste of money, then I spotted Tesco Value Toilet Roll, I suggested it to my husband who wasn't keen on the idea of trying it but it was either that or spend more on a different brand so we decided to give it a go, after all if we really hated it we could use it up and buy our regular brand once they had it in stock. The packaging of Tesco Value \Toilet Roll is very basic and blends in with the rest of the Value Range. The toilet rolls come tightly wrapped in a clear plastic wrapper sealed at the top and bottom to keep the toilet rolls inside clean. The wrapper then has a red band going around the whole of the packet, the Tesco Value logo appears in the top left hand corner. Written inside the red band going around the packet are the words "Toilet Tissue" along with the amount of rolls in the packet and the amount of sheets you get per roll. In the bottom right hand corner is the FSC logo which is a blue square shape with the white outline of a tree in it and the initials FSC, this logo means that by buying this product you are supporting the growth of responsible forest management around the world. On the back of the packet is a small amount of information about the Tesco Value Toilet Rolls, this is clearly set out and easy to read. Tesco Value Toilet Rolls are nothing fancy at all, they have no pattern on them and make no claims to be quilted or contain aloe vera, all you get with these is a pack of four plain white 2 ply toilet rolls, the toilet tissue comes wrapped around a plain brown cardboard tube, the same as most brands of toilet rolls do. I think you can buy six packs of Tesco Value Toilet Rolls, however my local Tesco only stocks the four pack which is plenty for us. Each roll contains approximately 400 sheets each, to be honest I'm not sure if this is standard or not I cannot remember how many sheets my regular brand contains and I cannot say that I have really studied other brands to see how many sheets they have per roll but going on appearance alone the rolls do look to be a standard size for a toilet roll. When we first tried the Tesco Value Toilet Rolls I was expecting them to be quite hard and rough feeling, however I was pleasantly surprised at how soft they were, obviously the sheets of toilet tissue were not quilted or anything, however they were not rough at all. The toilet tissue is absorbent and does not fall apart as soon as it is used, that was my other worry with it, I did think you may have to use a large amount in one go just to stop it from falling apart, however this was not the case, you could easily use just a few sheets at a time as you can with the more expensive toilet rolls. All in all I was very pleased with the softness of the toilet rolls and how well they performed in doing what they are supposed to. The Value Toilet Roll obviously can only be purchased from Tesco, the pack of four costs just £1.31. For such a cheap price this is an excellent product, the pack of four rolls lasts just as long as the more expensive brands, obviously this depends on how often you use it and how much you use at a time but personally I have been impressed with how long it lasts. Personally I think this is a real bargain and excellent value for money. I would definitely recommend Tesco Value Toilet Roll, it is a good quality product for a very low price, at the end of the day toilet roll just gets flushed down the toilet so I will not spend a massive amount of money on it, however with this one you get a good quality product for very little money. It is soft and absorbent and does not feel rough or hard at all, I am more than happy to have this in my bathroom. The product does not make any claims to be quilted or anything like that, it is just a basic but decent toilet roll, it also only comes in white, however for me this is not a problem as I only ever buy white toilet paper but if you prefer a different colour to match the colour scheme of your bathroom then this is not ideal as it only comes in the one colour. . Overall I was extremely pleased that I decided to give this a go and I have purchased it ever since, we will continue to use Tesco Value Toilet Roll and would recommend it to anyone.

                  An ok toilet tissue with no bells or whistles!

                  When it comes to buying toilet roll I humbly admit to being a bit of a cheap skate. My Mother for years only bought (and still does) the best and I got used to it but now I live alone I refuse to pay pounds for something to basically wipe my bottom on however don't get me wrong I don't at the same time want something so bad it scrapes my skin off either! I do alot of my weekly shopping in Tesco and this is the toilet rolls I have been using now pretty much for the past two years, till I found a better toilet roll in Poundland recently that is and I've swapped over to th! The Packaging: The packaging is very basic but of course this is a 'Value' product and I always bought a 4 pack of the toilet rolls which set me back £1.31 a time. The packaging is mainly see through plastic with red, white and blue colouring on it and on the front of it we are basically told that it it Tesco 'Value', 4 Rolls X 400 sheets and then on the back of the packaging we are told that it is 2 ply and contact details for Tesco are given. Like I say this is basic packaging but easy enough to get into etc and informative enough. The Toilet Rolls Themselves: These are pretty much standard sized toilet rolls, 2 ply as promised and on cardboard centres. They are smooth and the 2 plys stick together well enough, tear off simply enough and are soft to the touch. Using them, well come on you use them as you would any other toilet roll (lol), it doesn't disintegrate when in use and flushes with complete ease. My Verdict: I don't think this is bad loo roll at all for the money, I certainly didn't have any quibbles with it I only changed due to finding a better deal somewhere else and the one I use now is a little softer however I would happily use this again. If your looking for a silky soft, satin feel or cushioned toilet tissue then no this won't be for you! Its simply a plain, ok quality tissue paper that dos the job! Only available in Tesco stores.
