I read the reviews after already covering a large wall in my kitchen! Like everyone else I realised that this paint is not soothing white when it was too late. It is light blue in daylight and looks light grey as the day light changes.
Think homebase need to change the name of this paint!

I have always used Homebase kitchen and bathroom paint, in all rooms of the house as it is good value for money and most importantly, it is really hardwearing. I have four kids so need to be able to give the walls a good scrub now and then. I recently bought this 'soothing white' paint to paint my grey bathroom. I did one coat and thought 'this looks rather grey, but I'll give it a chance, maybe it will look more white when its dry'. Later that evening I did the second coat hoping it would be lovely and white in the daylight the next day. It wasn't. It is grey. unmistakably grey. I am very annoyed as I wanted white. Do not buy if you want white. If you want grey, go for it!

Quality is good but it isn't white ... More light blue. We bought two to do the bathroom and kitchen but returned the unopened one becuase the colour wouldnt work with our gloss white kitchen cupboards.

If you are expecting soothing white forget it, 2 coats were pale blue - thank god it matched my new shower room but not the tiles!

All the information for this paint is on the website i.e. it's a blue/grey colour, needs two coats etc but it wasn't in the shop so bought this colour like everyone else because I didn't want a brilliant white but a soft white (if anyone does read these reviews from Homebase there's clearly a market for the a soft,warm white colour). Took two coats and some touching up, and although not happy with the description the colour looks nice as it goes with my beige tiles and flooring to make a really clean looking bathroom. On its own though the colour is really cold and stark.

Unable to find a kitchen and bathroom brilliant white so i picked this tin up. Unfortunately it is grey and take at least 2 coats to cover white, which is not helpful when i wanted white. You know its wrong when your son asks why am i using grey paint !!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Viv This is not a white paint
The description 'white' should be removed from this product as it most definitely isn't white.
Feel rather annoyed as having decorated half the bathroom we now have to buy more paint and do it all again.
Waste of time and money.
who on earth reads reviews on paint colours prior to buying?........I wish I had done.
Quite nice colour if you want a 'subtle blue'.

Bought this paint to do bathroom ceiling with, it says white on tin. However this paint is an awful light grey, guess the black residue when I first opened tin should have giving it away about the shade. Glad I only done 1 coat on ceiling. Will be taking back to Homebase store and complaining about mis-selling
