Review: Wolford Satin Touch 20 Tights (3 for 2 Promotion)

      I was going to do a picture review but I realised that while the product is the same, the packaging and the colour selection are different.  For this reason, I will describe the differences below.  For everything else (which are identical), you can find them in my Satin Touch 20 tights review here.  If you don’t know much about Satin Touch 20 tights, I recommend you to read the review first, and then come back to this one.

Strengths & Weaknesses

⊕ Economic packaging.
⊕ Even cheaper prices.  

Packaging & product description

      The packaging is virtually identical to that of the Satin Touch 20 tights.  The only difference is that there are three pairs of tights instead of one, each secured with a thin piece of cardboard.  For your reference, I bought the 3 for 2 Promotion several years ago.  It was packaged by putting three individual Satin Touch 20 tights products into one large transparent plastic sleeve.  You can fathom how much packaging material Wolford has reduced in the current design.

      The 3 for 2 Promotion is not available on the Wolford Online Shop.  The product description on the back of the cover reads:

“Elegant, timeless and brilliant.  The Satin Touch 20 tights are a classic item and Wolford Essential Collection bestseller.  The limited-edition Satin Touch promotion set with three products in the same colour and size, is available for the price of two pairs of Satin Touch tights, making it a true highlight.”

Colour

      To the best of my knowledge, there are 7 shades available.  They are: Cosmetic, Fairly Light, Gobi, Caramel, Admiral, Nearly Black and Black.  I have attached a colour shade below.  Mind that the Fairly Light colour I purchased for this review is not shown in the image.

Final words

      The recommended retail price for individual-packaged Satin Touch 20 tights is £19, €19 or USD$35.  The 3 for 2 Promotion reduces the cost to £38 or €38.  Some online retailers offer VAT exemption if you live outside EU zone.  Suppose you also use a coupon, the saving will be enormous!

      The colour selection is of course a lot less than the single pair-packaged Satin Touch 20 tights.  Having said that, it has included the usual popular ones.  If basic colours is what you need, the 3 for 2 Promotion is the best you can get.
