      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Great product, one of my favourites.

      I am a great lover of hand washes and like to have one by every sink in the house as having a young baby and nappy changes equals much hand washing.

      My situation
      Upstairs I have a cute Hello Kitty hand wash pump bottle which I was bought for Christmas and have refilled twice. I often find that the pumps are faulty on bottles so it is handy to have one to decant into.

      Packaging
      The pump failed me on my latest bottle of Boots Ingredients Mango and Orange Blossom Hand Wash. I just couldn't get it to work, so this was the next one to go into Hello Kitty. I have had this hand wash a few times before and just love its fragrance, it is one of my favourites. The empty bottle can also go into the recycling box when finished with.

      Price
      A 300ml bottle is priced £1.25 but is often on special offer for £1 or you get a few extra boots points from the Advantage machine coupon allocator.
      In use
      One pump of the bottle is enough to deliver an adequate amount to wash hands and create a lather. It smells beautiful on the skin and doesn't dry out hands badly like some hand washes or soap can.

      My thoughts
      I like the label on the bottle of Mango and orange blossom hand wash, it is so straightforward with a picture of a fresh slice of mango and blossom sitting on top. The rest of the bottle is clear so you can see how much is left. The fresh and fruity smell lasts on your hands quite a while after washing and drying. I think this is a brilliant price for the product and Boots brand. I have bought other items from the Boots Ingredients range and found them also to be of good quality and a great price.

      Final word
      I think this is a nice hand wash although it's not offering the antibacterial properties that many hand washes have. I think as long as you spend a decent amount of time using warm or hot water, lathering and paying attention to nails and between the fingers you can get a good clean result with this hand wash. It's a shame the pump broke on mine before I got to use it but that does happen sometimes. I would buy this again (and again) but will try other brands in between so that I can appreciate the smell and not get used to it.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        5 stars for value and fragrance.

        Boots Mango and Orange Blossom Hand Wash is part of the 'Ingredients' range on sale in Boots stores across the UK.

        This is a value range of products, which includes the hand wash range, that are priced at around £1.19, although at times it can be bought for a little less. I managed to get these for £1 each recently, so do look out for reductions.

        **********************************************************
        The hand wash comes attractively packed, in a clear plastic container, with an easy to use pump applicator. To use the wash for the first time, you just need to twist the top, then press the pump a few times and its ready for use.

        The bottle contains 300g of hand wash, so will last well when compared to many other brands which contain less product for more money.

        *********************************************************
        The Mango hand wash is really nice to use. It contains a mix of mango extract and also orange blossom extracts. It gives off a light, fresh citrus aroma and seems to be ok for use even on sensitive hands.

        The wash is not too gloopy or thick in consistency and you need very little on the hands to work up a decent lather and give good results.

        *********************************************************
        Boots say that the Ingredients range of products are 'specially formulated to refresh and revitalise your skin, leaving it soft, smooth and conditioned'. All I can say is that having bought and used them, I found them very nice, so have bought them to use again.

        There is also a Lavender and Jasmine wash and a Coconut and Almond wash in the range. The Coconut wash is really lovely, its creamy in texture and smells lovely too. I do have the Lavender wash stashed away waiting to be used, but haven't tried it yet. Hopefully it will prove to be as good as the other 2 washes have been.

        **********************************************************
        I am rating the wash as 5 stars for value and fragrance. It does just what it should in a nice gentle way, is long lasting and easy to use.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A good budget buy.

        Boots Mango and Orange Hand Wash is part of a range known as "Ingredients" which offer inexpensive products designed to be used every day. These include shower gels and hand washes and I have tried many of these and found them to be very pleasant to use, and I think they represent good value for money. Often on offer for £1 but usually no more than £1.19, this hand wash is readily available in all Boots stores and online.

        The bottle is very pretty with a cut mango and orange blossom flower label and the amber liquid is clearly visible behind.

        I have three bathrooms and a kitchen sink all with hand basins, and so I use a lot of hand washes, and this product has been very popular with my husband and son. My husband actually commented on the lovely fragrance, which I thought was rather significant as it must have impressed him to encourage him to make a point.

        It lathers very well indeed and the smell is lovely, it reminds me of freshly cut tangerines, and after washing hands are clean and they really smell beautiful for ages afterwards. They are soft and the product is refreshing, and does not leave hands dry or in need of too much hand cream afterwards.

        The dispenser is very effective and it is economically pumped so a little goes a long way.

        The bottle can be recycled which I am pleased about, but I must admit I like to use Dettol soap in the kitchen as it is antibacterial and it eliminates the need for plastics to be collected after use by the council. It isn't that practical to use soap in the bathrooms though, and I prefer to use hand wash, especially in the downstairs cloakroom where guests use the facilities.

        This hand wash is a great buy and an economical one and I really love the scent. You can't go wrong with this and it won't break the bank either. If you like this range there is also a lovely Coconut and Almond hand wash and a Lavender and Jasmine variant.

        The Mango and Orange range also includes a body butter, shower gel, bath foam and body lotion. These are again inexpensive and attractively packaged.

        I think that if you are looking for a hand wash which looks fresh and attractive this is an excellent choice. It has a streamlined design so it fits on even the most modest sized hand basin, and the attractive sunny label is probably its most appealing feature.

        Good value and I think a hand wash to be recommended
