Worked really well

I never write reviews but I thought I had for this one.
When we brought our house it was covered in wallpaper from top to toe and when it was removed we had to get a lot of the rooms plastered because they were so bad by the time we got round to doing our spare room money was thin so we couldn’t afford to plaster it. I seen this paint and it had such mixed reviews I wasn’t sure if it would make any difference. Our walls had half the paint ripped off with the wallpaper and chunks out of it and a lot of filling and I have to say when I opened the tin o was shocked at how watery it is. Once we put it on the walls you could instantly see if a difference from where we were cutting in to the main wall. We decided to go for 2 coats over the worst areas and it worked a treat! Don’t get me wrong they don’t look as good as being plastered but as a quick fix it’s definitely worth the 30 pound you spend on it.
Now about that smell- us ladies know that smell all too well so I’m not surprised the men moan about it lol-it’s the smell of hair dye. If you have dyed your hair you will recognise it straight away haha.
Over all great product really happy with our it turned out.
Great buy - would use this again!

So from the pics you can see this is 1 coat. I was dubious due to mixed reviews, so As you can see it is thick to cover a bright pink like that, the walls are in horrendous condition with gauges, scratches, million wall plugs, and very bumpy plaster. 1 coat looks great and really smoothed it all out, think 2 coats will nail it. It does have a smell, but it is not that bad no worse than some wall paint and does go quickly. I would 100% buy this again

Don’t listen to the other reviews they are clearly false as i had no issues and claim it’s got a strong smell but yet it’s water based so practically impossible to do so. Worth the money and fantastic other range of products from this brand also. painted full house and many customers property’s too.
Cheap and nasty.

If you've got this far, don't do it.
The only positive I can think of is the paint is white as it says on the tin!
Its thin, and I mean really thin even after stirring and giving it a good shake.
You will need about a half dozen coats for it to be of any use if you're lucky.
Imagine the smell of a public bathroom!!!!!! Yep, thats somewhere near the smell left as it dries.
I only bought the b&q home brand as the dulux was out of stock in the store and I really needed it that day. I have used the Dulux alternative for years and it is great to use, nice thick texture, great coverage, brilliant white and NO aftersmell, but this , No,no,no.
Don't do it. Pay the extra and go for another brand.

I don’t normally write reviews but I felt I should after I’d used this... We had terrible uneven walls which were bare plasterboard, old flaking paint and some sort of white gloss. After stripping off all old wallpaper and giving the walls a really thorough sanding I applied 2 coats of this (thick coats) and it has transformed the walls!
It has honestly saved us hundreds of pounds on plastering.
