Carex Chocolate Orange Hand Wash
Advantages: Scent, anti bacterial, economical, family friendly, appealing, functional
Disadvantages: Only available in 250ml - bigger would be even better!
I have to admit, it may sound strange to have pure love for hand soap, but I really do for this one! I may be 24, without children, and living with only my boyfriend and pets, but I love buying this fun and effective soap for myself! I can only imagine how great it would be for those with children or younger families at home.
"Family friendly fragrance" - written across the front of the bottle.
I definitely agree with the above statement. The scent from the soap is divine! I am on my fourth bottle of this, and have to admit, I did wonder if the novelty of the fragrance would ware off with me, but it has not. I get the same smile and happy feeling when I put the soap in my hand as I did the first time I used it! I can't imagine many children, or adults, disliking the scent if they are a fan of the amazing flavour that is chocolate orange. It also stays on the skin for some time after using it and I just find myself constantly smelling my hands and fingers! Delightful!
The liquid itself is a wonderful bright orange colour; this reflects the beautiful orange and chocolate fragrance of the soap. The word "family" is in multi colours and I feel this highlights the child friendly appeal of the soap. The "O" in orange is, in fact, a small orange, and it is this attention to detail in the design which makes it such a special hit - I can once again only imagine seeing the product through a child's eyes, and cannot see that they would do anything but be intrigued by this product and want to love and use it. Even the little bubbles pictured across the front echo tiny chocolate oranges!
The information on the back of the bottle is usual standard information of ingredients, shelf life, how to dispose of the bottle etc. There is also more blurb highlighting the family and fun appeal of the product, and little warning that made me smile - "not edible"! I can see how someone may be tempted to taste!
The bottle design itself is effective, simple, tidy. A pump action with screw lid ensures the right amount is dispensed in your hand, big or small, and that there are no drips or mess on the sides. There is a curve to the edges of the bottle which allow easy picking up, even with slippy hands there is ability to grip, and I imagine the little ones would also find it easy to pick up should they need to. The see through plastic and minimal label design allows for the orange colour to show through, and this as previously stated, makes the product so much more appealing.
I must admit, after all this lovely talk of scent, colours, and design, I would probably on reading this expect to see something about a lovely novelty soap that is no good at cleaning, or doesn't effectively kill germs, but the great thing with this soap is it is not only a novelty but a novelty that actually works! It kills 99.9% of bacteria in seconds, and produces a very good lather when used. There are instructions on how to use it most effectively, and even a web address to direct people to for more information - www.carex.co.uk
The price of the soap is often fluctuating, but I have never seen it at a price which I would call unreasonable. On writing this review, in fact, it is on offer in Tesco for 90p per 250ml bottle!
All in all and amazing soap, very effective, and highly recommended for people with young families, or even adult ones!
Summary: An excellent and effective product that will appeal to all generations I am sure.
