The Feel Good Fruits
handwash: Lemon, honey and vanilla variety
I bought a few of these from Tesco when they were on offer recently. I think I got 3 bottles for £2.50 so they were good price I felt. Each bottle contains 500ml.
The lemon, honey and vanilla one is a yellow colour in a sort of frosted plastic bottle with a clear push- down dispenser. It is a basic looking product but not unattractive although I know there are posher looking items if you pay the price. I certainly don't feel embarrassed having it in my bathroom as it doesn't look like a cheapie value brand.
On the front the hand wash is described as "tangy lemon, soothing honey and calming vanilla pod". The only item pictured is the " tangy lemon" but although that is the strongest aroma one of the three that I can smell when I squeeze some out to sniff it I can also smell the honey and vanilla notes behind the lemon. The smell is quite strongly lemon but the vanilla adds a creamier note whilst the honey makes it slightly sweeter rather than sharp smelling. It a pleasant citrus - like fresh smell but not the lemony smell sometimes associated with washing up liquids it is softer than that. The smell doesn't linger too long on your hands though so will not clash with other perfumes or the like that you may be wearing.
The hand wash is quite thick and once again I followed the directions on 'how to use' (For those who have never used a hand wash before- there are directions on the back) and I found that indeed one squirt was enough to get a good lather for hand washing.
The claim on the front of the bottle is that this is a moisturising creme hand wash. It certainly is not a harsh product and it does leave my hands quite soft so I would suggest that it is quite moisturising though I have not abandoned using my hand cream just yet.
The bottle is quite chunky which means that you can push down quite quickly and not have the thing tip over. Some hand washes I have tried have narrower bottoms and this often ends up tipping over.
The pump dispenser is functional and easy to use and a decent amount comes out when pushed. My grandchildren have no trouble using this and they are aged three and five so it is definitely a product designed to function easily.
This is not the most exciting hand wash I have ever bought but it does the job and is much nicer than bar soap which goes strange when not used often ( spare room ensuite) or soggy ( down stairs loo used by grandchildren).
The only real disadvantage I find with this variety is that it is NOT anti bacterial and this is so useful in a hand wash. I do not keep this variety in my kitchen for this reason. My hand wash in the kitchen is always an anti-bacterial one as I feel it is extra security when handling food to wash hands with something that is anti-bacterial first.
A pleasant smelling lemony , good value hand wash but not anti bacterial.
