Carex Moisture Rich Handwash
Advantages: Lovely fragrance
Disadvantages: None for me
I never stick to a particular brand of hand wash, for two reasons, one I like to try out the different fragrances and brands but the main reason is that I like to buy whatever is on offer at the time. so a recent hand wash I purchased for our bathroom was Carex Moisture Plus Hydrating, I have tried Carex products in the past and have always been impressed however I hadn't tried this particular one before and as it was on offer I decided to give it a go.
The Carex Moisture Plus hand wash comes in a clear plastic bottle, this is a square shape with rounded corners. The bottle has a clear plastic label on the front of it, in the middle of the label is a large dark blue oval with the words "Cussons Carex" written inside it in white writing, this has a blue drop of water coming from it. Above this is a splash of blue with the words "Triple Moisture" written inside and right at the bottom of the bottle is the type of hand wash which in this case is "moisture plus hydrating" and also the fact that this is an antibacterial hand wash. There is no other information on the front of the bottle, however it is to the point and tells you what you need to know. On the back of the bottle is a white round label with product information written on it in blue, this includes various statements about the product along with the ingredients, this is all written in dark blue and is easy to read against the white background. On the top of the bottle is a white transparent pump, this can be screwed on and off of the bottle and simply presses down to release the hand wash inside.
The Hand wash
The Carex Moisture Plus Hand wash is a pearly white colour, I particularly liked this as it went very well in my bathroom. It is of a reasonably thick consistency, yet not too thick that it is difficult to pump out of the bottle. There is nothing on the front of the bottle to indicate what the fragrance of this product was going to be so I didn't really know what to expect. When I first used the hand wash I noticed that it had a lovely sweet fragrance to it, it reminded me of a sort of vanilla mixed with a musky fragrance, it was very delicate yet clean and fresh. The hand wash is described as being caring and nourishing for dry skin whilst at the same time preventing germs. I found that I just needed a couple of squirts of this hand wash which developed into a lovely soft lather, it really did feel gentle on my skin. Once I had rinsed the lather from my hands I could still clearly smell the sweet fragrance, my hands felt clean and fresh and I was in no doubt that the had wash had thoroughly cleaned my hands. The fragrance lasted for some time on my skin and it did not dry it out at all, some hand washes I have tried are quite harsh on your skin, however this was the total opposite, it was gentle yet effective at killing germs as stated on the back of the bottle.
Other statements about Carex Moisture Plus hand wash which appear on the back of the bottle include the fact that it has triple moisture action which supports the skins natural antibacterial defences and the product is dermatologicaly tested to ensure it is kind on your skin. I do have to agree with these statements, after trying the hand wash over the last couple of weeks I have been impressed with how gentle it is on my skin, during the winter I do suffer with dry skin on my hands which can be made worse by using harsh soaps on them, by using Carex Moisture Plus I did not have to worry about the product drying my hands out further, after every use my hands felt moisturized and nourished
Price & Availability
I purchased my Carex Moisture Plus from my local Tesco, the 250ml bottle cost me just £1.00, however this was on offer at the time, when full price it is sold for £1.60, I still think it is quite good value for money at full price as I personally found the bottle was long lasting, ours was used at least a couple of times a day often more and it lasted 2 or 3 weeks and that was with 2 of us using it. Carex Moisture Plus is available in most supermarkets along with other high street stores such as Superdrug, the price varies a little depending on where you buy it from.
I would definitely recommend Carex Moisture Plus hand wash, it really does do what it says it does, it is certainly hydrating and keeps you hands moisturised and nourished no matter how many times a day you wash them. This product is ideal for those with sensitive skin and personally I have found that it does not irritate my skin when my hands are feeling a bit dry due to the cold weather. After using Carex Moisture Plus my hands really felt clean and fresh, the lovely sweet fragrance lingers on your skin for some time afterwards which adds to the freshness. I would also say that this product is very fairly priced especially when on offer, I have found it long lasting and very economical, you really do only need a small amount of the had wash at a time and this creates a good amount of lather. I will buy this again in the future. This is definitely a product I would recommend to anyone.
Summary: A very nice handwash
