Our test covers all the tissues we could find in national retailers, plus a few more.

Our expert testers will tell you which tissues:

  • are the softest
  • are strong and can resist puncturing
  • absorb the most liquid, and
  • won't tear easily when wet.

Our interactive comparison tool helps you sort by price, and our Recommended list will quickly tell you which facial tissue brands come out on top.
