No Nonsense Ready Mixed Plaster White 10kg
Better than expected
Never having done any plastering before (not that you could class using this as proper plastering I guess) and reading the reviews on this I was sceptical. However for repairing some small damaged areas to the walls where our house's previous owners had been heavy handed it went on easily, dried properly and left a perfectly blended finish once sanded back.
It went a lot further than I thought it would too. Would use again purely for the convenience of not buying a 30kg back of plaster mix I'm not going to use all of.

Good plaster substitute
Takes a little time to go off and won't smooth perfectly well when doing larger/deeper areas, but as ready mix goes this is perfectly good stuff. I've tried others which are more grainy, but this one is very smooth. A quick run over with a sander afterwards and you can complete entire walls, with great results once painted.

Not quite what I had expected when I opened it as a similar product from the green/orange store had a totally different texture and applied differently to walls. For a light skim this is very good, but it does tend to sag a little if you try to back fill any gaps from socket installs etc. Feels a little soft, so not sure if I would trust sticking anything to it if applied to a wall.
Certainly goes on easy enough. Personally, the price is a little on the expensive side though.

Ready mixed plaster
Was on the wall for 10 hours before showing any sign of drying.
More like sloppy filler than plaster.
Nightmare to use.
End up covered in it as it refuses to set.
