Personally, I didn't like the old version, but my husband wouldn't use anything else. I didn't like how it sort of left me feeling a little greasy after using it. Apparently that's what everyone else in the world liked about the old Charmin Plus though. I know my husband would be thrilled if we still had the old kind, and if he's happy I'm happy too.

For those of you that wonder what the difference is (since Charmin either claims there isn't a difference or chooses to ignore all those who notice a difference), this is what I found out.

The ingredients in the current "Charmin Sensitive with a Touch of Aloe & E" are:
Mineral Oil (Paraffinum Liquidum), Cetearyl Alcohol, Beeswax (Paraffin Cera Alba), Steareth 2, Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis) Extract, Tocopheryl (Natural Vit. E), Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter)
This is according to the ingredients listed here, [...]

The ingredients in "Charmin plus Soothing Lotion" back in 2006 (judging by the date associated with the UPC number at [...]) were:
Petrolatum, Cetearyl Alcohol, Ceteareth-10, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Diethylhexyl Sodium Sulfosuccinate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Bisabolol, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract.
You can see these ingredients here,[...], on a store website where the good, old Charmin appears as "out of stock." That right there would suggest to me that it's not the same product as some others believe.

The thing that seems to be missing that made the new Charmin worse is Petrolatum. I gathered that after reading this, "Examples of lotionized bathroom and facial tissue include Charmin Plus® and Puffs Plus®, respectively, commercially available from the Procter & Gamble Co. These products contain a lotion based on petrolatum and mineral oil and leave a greasy feel to the skin after use." And I read that here, [...] These nice people were apparently getting a patent for something to treat TP and other tissues with that would not leave a greasy feeling.

So from now on I will be looking for a TP with Petrolatum I guess as I continue to try to find something my husband will like just the same, but I'm not getting my hopes up that I will ever find anything again.

My wife and I have used this version of Charmin for years (under a different name until last year), and we would buy no other. Our only disappointment with the version sold in the subscribe & save plan is that the rolls themselves are noticeably smaller than those in the one-off packages. Doesn't affect the quality at all, but it likely makes them slightly more expensive. Still, the convenience factor fr this great paper is significant. Charmin Sensitive Big Rolls 12 Count Pack 165 Sheet Rolls (Pack of 4) 48 Total Rolls

The softest toilet paper around. What a great price and comes in bulk. I save money this way and don't have to worry about ever running out.

This was a gift for my mother who loved this product but it is harder to find in stores. It is a must try if you have not.

After several local stores quit carrying this item, I began ordering through Amazon. I love the convenience of having it delivered on a regular basis.
The product is the best there is!

with the rise in gas prices you really can't find a better price, use subscribe & save and it is even better when you factor in gas & time...

The older version of Charmin Plus was far better and used it for many, many years.
The only point that I can make here is that this Charmin Ultra Plus is impossible to find in my area stores.
Even though the reviews are correct about this paper, it is still far softer than any paper out there and still is the only one I buy.

Rolls are a bit small, but other than that this TP is great. My Fiance insists on this kind and to keep him happy I ordered it in bulk to keep my wallet happy.
