Painting bathroom on new plaster

Just that, really. We have a newly plastered, new build bathroom, so plaster over plasterboard.

In the past I've bought, and used, emulsion for kitchens and bathrooms.

My question is, is this worth doing? Is it very different from 'ordinary' emulsion? Would/do professionals use this, or is it basically a price based con?

Thanks in advance.

First put a mist coat on it and then two coats of bathroom paint. I find it's worth it as it really helps with steam, especially from a shower!
