Advantages Soft on skin and nose area, cheap in price
Disadvantages Rip and tear really easily, bad quality, always grab more than one tissue
|Value for Money|
When it comes to my shopping trips I really like to keep an eye on what I am spending, because of this I seem to notice when products go up in price and the increase in some items from week to week is quite shocking, not just food items but cleaning products and silly things such as kitchen roll and tissues, in fact this is what leads me to my review today. I normally buy the Kleenex tissues, I don’t seem to get through them that quickly but on the last occasion that I went to buy them I noticed a sharp increase in price so I decided to buy some shops own brand tissues, I normally shop in Tesco so would have normally picked up a box of the Value ones but I happened to be in Sainsbury’s when I needed some more tissues so picked up a box of their Basics Facial Tissues.
As this is a Sainsbury’s Basics product, there is no fancy packaging, what you see is what you get, there is no printed cardboard with a pretty floral patterns or prints on, but a cardboard box which is mainly white in colour and the only other colour being orange. The box as IO mentioned is made from recyclable cardboard and it is actually quite light and flimsy, not that this is a criticism. The box is a standard size and comes with the Sainsbury’s logo at the top and the name of the product just below it. There is minimal writing and on the box and there is only a brief description of the tissues, stating that there are ‘150 tissues in the box’ and that they are 2 ply. To remove the tissues from the box is like any other, there is an oval shaped perforated cut out that you need to remove to reveal the tissues, i removed it by pressing onto it.
As I continued to use these tissues I found myself even more disappointed with them. It was the thickness of them really that let me down and whilst I appreciate that I paid very little for the tissues I did expect something a little bit more substantial for my money. One thing that I was impressed with about these tissues was they were actually quite soft on my nose, I am not sure how you would get on if you had a cold and we consistently having to wipe your nose but on when I used the tissues on individual occasions I found that they caused no harm to my nose and the skin around it.
I give these 2 out of 5
