“absolutely rubbish!!! ”

Written on: 26/08/2015 by NunoMonteiro (1 review written)

I´m a tradesman, I started a job for a company a month ago, I have finished the job around 3 weeks ago, this week the company called me saying that the paint was not dry and some parts were starting to peel, I was a bit surprised as I have never had that problem in my life, so they said that they were going to call a Dulux Rep, I thought that was fair enough, so today I receided a message from the company saying that the Dulux Rep and two painters were in the house and they all said "to many… Read Full Review

“Don't ever use this paint!”

Written on: 23/08/2015

I can't find words bad enough to describe this product! I painted all the woodwork in my bedrooms several weeks ago and from the start, I wasn't impressed by the coverage, which seemed very patchy. When finished, I wasn't happy with the end result, but decided to leave it for the time being as I didn't really have the time and energy to do anything about it for the forseeable future. Now I'm going to have to do something alot sooner than I thought. Why? The paint has now gone sticky and looks… Read Full Review

“Waste of tome”

Written on: 26/06/2015 by Feb1702 (1 review written)

I am in the process of painting hall and stairway. The paint does not go on evenly and lease streaks I am about to take the full tin back to retailer and get a refund. We have always relied on Dulux brand but I have now to go find a substitute to complete the decorating. So disappointing!… Read Full Review

“Quality brand - awful product”

Written on: 14/06/2015 by Andy0830 (1 review written)

Have used Dulux satinwood many times in the past when it was an oil based paint and with proper pre prep always gave a good finish. Extremely dissapointed with the water based version, yes it is a bit watery to apply nbut the main criticism is the finish. Truly appalling! Sticky and soft in many places and the bannister became dirty and even stickier after just a few weeks. Try to clean it and paint just peels off in places! Put off Dulux for good now, such a waste of valuable time… Read Full Review

“Truely awful paint”

Written on: 09/06/2015 by fzThornton75 (1 review written)

I wish I had read these reviews before buying and painting my house with this paint, but I trusted Dulux to be a good brand. This paint is terrible, and the worst element of it is IT DOES NOT DRY! I have painted some bookshelves in my house with it (along with my doors, skirting boards, wardrobe and more) and two months later the books are still sticking to the paint. What's more, it can't be sanded back as it simply clumps up as it's not a hard tough properly set paint for sanding. What a… Read Full Review

“This paint is a disaster. Please do not buy it.”

Written on: 31/05/2015 by Stephen0076 (1 review written)

I bought a tin of Dulux quick-drying satinwood in black to form the main colour of a folding Art Deco screen I was building. After priming and sanding the wood I applied this. The paint left brush marks and it was impossible to keep a wet edge as it began to dry far too quickly. Overnight, it had dried but still felt tacky/greasy/clammy, which is the best way I can describe it, and what's more, even after 48 hours it scratched off with my fingernail. It was then that I typed in the problem to… Read Full Review

“Disastrous!”

Written on: 27/05/2015 by ehFernandez169 (1 review written)

I used this paint as it was fast drying and is reputed not to discolour as oil based whites do. The fist thing I noticed was that I had lot of brush marks, this being particularly noticeable on large surfaces. I was surprised as I am normally a reasonable painter. When the job was finished (I had painted 2 large room plus stairs and landing) within a week the paint on the bannisters was becoming very dirty and sticky and within 2 weeks started to peel off in places. The finish is reasonable… Read Full Review

“Appalling finish - not recommended”

Written on: 11/05/2015 by Lilyanaf122 (1 review written)

This paint gives the most appalling finish. Grooves from every fibre of the brush are left on the surface you've painted. The paint starts to dry before you get a chance to attempt to get an even finish. So yes it is quick dry. Too quick! The paint when dry has a thin, flimsy look about it, like you really need more coats even though you've already done one extra coat than you would normally do. Only saving grace is that you can clean the brush in water. Will not bother with this paint again… Read Full Review

“Absolute rubbish, do not buy”

Written on: 30/04/2015 by 415Power (1 review written)

Last week I took a few days annual leave to prepare and paint my bannister, spindles and so on. After sanding down, cleaning up, caulking and various other bits of preparation I undercoated and then had the misfortune of selecting Dulux Quick Dry Satinwood Brilliant White. I figured that quicker drying water based paint would be better as I have a golden retriever roaming around the house and he would be less likely to get hair all over the finish. Big mistake. Having used other satinwood… Read Full Review

“Dulux Satinwood Awful.”

Written on: 01/04/2015 by bobbyconnolly1 (1 review written)

This is without the worst paint I've ever used. Recommendation to everyone... just DON'T BUY THIS PRODUCT. I'm only sorry I didn't read the reviews before hand, but then why should I? isn't Dulux a well known, well established reliable brand? Well, apparently not. I thought I would save myself some effort with brush cleaning by buying water based paint. Turns out I now have to strip the paint off and start again - but not with Dulux. Why?... the paint runs and drips if you load the paint… Read Full Review

After correct preparation of my bannister and stairs hand rail, all sanded down, primed and a very good finish on the undercoat.The dulux satin wood finish is appalling, the paint can easily be removed with a slight tap with the finger nail.The appearance looks blistered in places.

“So disappointing”

Written on: 19/02/2015 by Chutneyqueen (1 review written)

What on earth have Dulux done to the formulation of their Satin pain . I know it's now water based but it is rubbish. I wish I had never had my beautifully smoooth and silky cupboards repainted as they are now all brushmarks and a rough finish, despite being very well sanded down and properly prepared. Dulux should not be selling this product until they have completely reformulated and improved it. For future work I will revert back to gloss (unless they have ruined that too). Satin now is… Read Full Review

Gingermax's Response to Chutneyqueen's Review

Written on: 27/03/2015

I too have found that the current Dulux Satinwood acrylic-based paint is absolutely dreadful - as is for that matter the Crown equivalent. It takes several coats to cover adequately, It dries so quickly that if you're painting a large surface and try to blend with what you've done already it drags the paint and the overlap always shows. Even with a decent brush you get permanent brushmarks. It also tends to flake off even when prepared properly.

The answer is simple. Avoid B&Q, Wickes etc and go to your nearest Dulux Decorator Centre. Though it says 'Trade Counter' they sell to the public too. They still sell the oil-based trade version which is infinitely better than water-based acrylic, and to my surprise it cost slightly less than the usual outlets. They know what they're talking about too and you won't queue as long.

“Very very disappointing - how can they get away with this”

Written on: 16/02/2015 by Benjamin344 (1 review written)

To say we are unhappy is an understatement. I cannot believe they can get away with selling this product. I wish I had listened to my husband but I was adamant I wanted that particular colour. The doors have now had four coats and still the stuff flakes off. Feeling very despondent and not sure what to do as if we start again there are skirting boards and door frames to do also. Wish we had never started now! The only thing in its defence is the brushes clean nicely!… Read Full Review

“Satinwood very poor”

Written on: 21/01/2015 by Dougaloxford (1 review written)

Just opened a new tin of Satinwood, gave it a good stir as per the instructions , started to paint our new skirting boards and the paint appeared to be very thin with extremely poor coverage. A few years ago we had the problem with Dulux gloss going yellow after a few weeks, decided to give the brand another chance, with much regret. Just opened a new tin of Farrow & Ball Estate Eggshell in all white really excellent both coverage and application. Well worth the extra for this… Read Full Review

“Shame on Dulux!”

Written on: 17/01/2015 by CannonGray (1 review written)

We trusted the brand and our past experience but this paint is a travesty. It peels off, even weeks after careful preparation and painting. It is like painting with glue to apply and if you try to paint a second coat after recommended drying times it lifts the second coat. Would like to give it no stars!… Read Full Review

“Total rubbish, AVOID.”

Written on: 23/12/2014

I've used Dulux quick drying satinwood for many years and have been extremely happy with its coverage, ease of use and finish. However, it would seem that Dulux has changed its composition and it is now total rubbish. I have bought 2 tins in the last few weeks and although they have gone on pretty well, after about a week after application,the surface has become very greasy to the touch and attracts dirt and hairs. I have contacted Dulux and sent a brush test sample to them. They have confirmed… Read Full Review

“Insulting to painters”

Written on: 08/12/2014 by Sampson194 (1 review written)

Dreadful, dreadful, dreadful. I have been an expert painter for many years and never experienced anything as awful as this rubbish. Dulux should be prosecuted for selling this stuff. It doesn't spread. It melts its own undercoat as one uses it. It costs time and money to rectify the appalling mess this stuff creates. Shame on Dulux!!!… Read Full Review

“Do not touch this Dulux Satinwood paint with a barge pole.”

Written on: 07/12/2014 by 111Curran (1 review written)

Dulux Satinwood - Quickdry. I've painted almost all my house with the spirt based satinwood. It's lasted well kept its whiteness and looks really great. I then made a mistake in picking up a can of this stuff - ugh!!!!! I normally wet and dry surfaces down then wash in preparation. True I did not remove all sheen. Having painted all surfaces twice I proceeded to line and wall paper the walls. It was when I began to wipe off excess wall paper paste that I began to notice a problem. Small areas… Read Full Review

“How can they get away with selling this product?”

Written on: 27/11/2014 by Wood221 (1 review written)

Shocked to find the paint skins on top of the paint beneath. A moderately pressed finger nail can remove it! If used on window cills, anything sticks to it. A door that was painted a month ago is still susceptible to a finger nail being able to scrape the paint off. None of this is written on the tin! 7 doors, a large window sill and woodwork all painted and then I find this out. WHY ARE THEY ABLE TO SELL THIS PRODUCT!!… Read Full Review
