Carex Original Handwash
Advantages: cleans well, cheap
Disadvantages: no added scent
I usually use liquid soaps in the kitchen and bathroom as I suppose most people do these days. I tend to just buy whichever soaps are on the best offers or cheapest when I run out and most recently that was Carex Original. I purchased a 250ml bottle of this from Wilkinson's for £1.
The soap come in a fairly thick, almost square shaped, plastic bottle. As with most soaps, this has a pump on top (blue plastic) that is compressed to release the soap. The front of the bottle has the carex label on. Through the bottle, you can see the soap which is a bright blue colour.
The soap is pretty basic - as you would suspect from the price - but it meets my needs perfectly. I do not wish to pay triple the price for a soap that smells nice/moisturises etc. It does, however, clean your hands and protect them from bacteria - perfect for in the kitchen and toilets! The soap is quite runny but lathers well under running water. One squeeze of soap is sufficient to wash both hands. The original variety has no scent added, so just smells soapy as opposed to pleasant and has no added moisturising benefit although it does not dry my hands at all, even after multiple uses.
A bottle of this usually lasts me well over a month and, in a house with two adults (and numerous nappy changes!!), I think this is great value for £1. Although it would be nice to have a soap with a scent to it, it is not essential to me and not something I would be willing to pay much more for. Therefore, although this soap could be described as basic, it is just what I require.
Summary: decent soap for a good price
