Carex Handwash Strawberry Laces
Advantages: Nice bottle, good quality handwash
Disadvantages: Scent isn't as berry nice as I'd like it to be!
When it comes to hand wash its something I like to keep to keep in my bathroom and in my kitchen. I hate scummy bits of soap looking mushy and unhygienic around and about the place and a bottle of hand wash I always thinks looks better.
This one I bought not only cos it was on offer in my local Asda store for Pound opposed to usually costing £2.00 a bottle if not on a deal but because it is pink as well which is the colour scheme for my bathroom which is why I bought it for there! I do like matching things and with my mum coming round to see me I wanted it to look as nice as possible!
`This comes in one size only as far as I am aware of and that size is 250ml and it comes in a squarish shape with a lever style push button dispenser to the top if it which does switch to an off and on position. On the front of the bottle we are told that it is Cussons Carex Strawberry Laces Hand Wash 'Kills 99.9% of bacteria and then on the back of the bottle we are told a bit about the product and how to use it, the ingredients and the size is stated (as I have listed already) and contact details for PZ Cussons are given (the manufacturer of the product of course!). I like being able to see through the bottle so I know when I need to grab some more hand wash and I like the way this also has a slight indentation to the middle of the bottle for ease of handling and do feel that this is a very informative product too.
We are told on the back of the bottle to use just a couple of pumps of this per application and to wash your hands for at least 15 seconds to get the best results from it. The liquid is a light pink see through colour when applied and rather runny with a nice hint of a sweet strawberry fragrance to it though I didn't think this was highly fragranced enough as in my opinion this is aimed at children but it is nice enough and quite sweet in fragrance.
It lathers up very nicely though not too much so and is easy to rinse off and the hands are left looking clean and with a very subtle sweet smell to them however it is isn't particularly a strawberry fragrance left lingering really just sweet and that soon wears off really .
However having said that this leaves my hands feeling clean and very soft with no need to go rushing off to use a hand moisture cream or anything. It doesn't leave any residue on the hands and like I say they simply feel fresh and smooth..
This is meant to kill off bacteria and this is where I can't vouch for the product cos of course I have no way of knowing if it does that however I feel confident that this is a claim made by a brand I trust so I believe it to be true in this case.
You don't need too much of this per application, the push button lever is easy enough to use I just felt a bit disappointed at the scent not being as nice as I imagined it to be but it matches my bathroom and my skin feels nice after using it so although I wont go out of my way to buy this particular hand wash again due to the scent of it I wouldn't avoid it like the plague either but I will be looking for other scents from within this range in the future!
Available in all good supermarkets and chemists etc.
Summary: Nice enough though not my fav from the range!
