Rated 1 out of 5 by unhappy painter terrible coverage
Omg! This is not white! It is blue! Not soothing at all, spent whole day moaning, ever hopeful it would look better! Wasted whole day painting, two coats gives terrible result! Hate the colour! I should know better not to buy Home base paint! When will I learn! Dulux or my real favourite Farrow and Ball for future projects! And for the ceiling! Hoping I can live with blue walls! Looked white in the tub, but not against white. Colour card on line is true, but I bought in store. Always test first!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Tee Not as expected
I too wish I had read the reviews before buying, I expect a paint called 'soothing white' to be fairly white. Luckily I only painted a small patch, but now have to buy another tin of paint, probably from dulux or crown, to ensure it's white (not dirty grey) and an even coat, not thick and streaky.
Seeing as there are so many negative reviews here it makes me wonder why homebase have not actually done anything to improve this product/labelling

Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed Doesn't do what it says on the tin
I wish I'd read these reviews before buying.
Like the majority of the reviewers I bought this expecting something not stark white, but softer.
It is a grey/blue cold nasty colour. The product doesn't cover exceptionally well. Luckily I stopped after only painting a small part, but still feel I've wasted time and money.
The product should be renamed it definitely isn't soothing, nor white.

soothing white. If you are expecting a white colour you will not find this soothing!!!

I bought this from a small Homebase where I only had a choice between 'soothing white' and 'Magnolia'. Hence I expected it to be white. The label was certainly very white. Got it home - having spent several days painting layers of white emulsion on as an undercoat - only to find that it was a cold grey-blue colour. I am now having to start from scratch repainting the ceiling, and am having some trouble hiding this colour. What a waste of time. The colour on this website is fairly representative but I urge you to reconsider the name of this product in order not to waste any more customers' time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Carol Very misleading
Sold as white and it is a very unsoothing grey. Waited overnight, expecting it to dry white, but no. Utter waste of a day as we had to buy Dulux and reprint the whole kitchen and dining area ceilings again. This will be going back for a refund.

like the majority of the other reviews, i bought this expecting it to be white- like the label and the colour on the tine- only to find i now have a sludgy grey-blue ceiling, which i now have to repaint!
a real rip off!!

As the other reviews have stated this is not white, more of a light grey colour. Have to now buy another tin of paint that is white.
Had to leave a rating of 1 star as you can not leave no star rating.
