Too difficult to use, not really a DIY product
Almost impossible to mix to a smooth consistency (without a power mixer of some sort). You are against the clock once mixing has started as well.
Applicator isn't very good and I found that whilst applying to an open surface was messy but doable, I wasn't confident getting into corners or edges and it's impossible to get behind pipework or fixtures.
Mine went off about two third's through the job and I had to bin about a third of my mix.
For me the end result on a flat surface was very good and the product itself does the job, however, even for an experienced DIY'er, without a power mixer and good plastering or rendering skills it's too much to take on.

Good, but horrible to apply!
The end result of a waterproof barrier behind tiles is brilliant. Getting there is a little harder!
First of all, the little applicator provides was absolutely useless. I ended up using a plasterers trowel as the applicator just left to many ridges. I also used a plasterers hawk as there is no easy way to get the stuff to the wall.
The instructions are written on the bucket. Not great when you want to check back on something when it's full of gunk!
Lastly, wear long sleeved shirts and gloves. It's an absolute devil to get off your skin or anything else!
Overall though, whilst it's a bit of a faff applying, it seems to have produced the desired result.
