Dove Fresh Touch Handwash
Advantages: Packaging works, design is pleasant, scent is good and moisturises well
Disadvantages: Quite synthetic
Dove Go Fresh is a range of hand wash products made by Dove for use in the bathroom. Their main selling point is apparently the creaminess and refreshing sensation on your skin after use.
This particular item is scented, apparently, with cucumber and green tea extracts although you would never really know it. The scent is quite fresh and pleasant but not really of the things it's supposed to be. The gel itself is an odd and very synthetic looking shiny green. It doesn't look as though a single natural ingredient has gone into this product and judging by the list of ingredients on the back... It hasn't. Not that this is their claim mind.
In terms of moisturising quality it's very good and leaves your hands very soft and it also fulfils it's creamy promise in the consistency of the gel. The refreshment for your skin boast also seems to work more than other products, again probably due to the creamy quality of it. The gel is quite thick so you only need a little amount to wash properly meaning it lasts quite a long time.
The packaging is fairly simple but pleasant. It has a soft and gentle feel to it both in it's use of subtle, almost pastel colours and also light and airy typography. In the middle is a calming picture of a splashing cucumber and green tea leaf to differentiate this product from others in the range. The overall colour feel is green and this is present throughout. The container itself continues the theme with it's curved, almost oval shape and white in colour with a green dispenser on the top. The design of the dispenser is functional and works very well. It has a slow action meaning it's easy to dispense small amounts so you don't have too much wastage. It does not leak and didn't break... In fact we have reused it for another purpose and it is still going strong.
The contents is 250ml which is standard size for a hand wash and cost us £1.00 at a reduced 'on offer' price in Sainsbury's.
In all, this is an excellent hand wash despite re fact it's not very natural. The scent is actually quite refreshing and pleasant compared to most in a similar price range so definitely worth a purchase
Summary: Synthetic but good scent, moisturising quality and value
