The Feel Good Fruits
handwash: Pink grapefruit 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 grapefruit one is a pink colour in a sort of frosted plastic bottle with a pink push- down dispenser. It is not an unpleasant looking item in my bathroom although I know there are smarter 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 "passionate pink grapefruit, revitalising fig and tantalising thyme". The only item pictured is the " passionate pink grapefruit" and I have to say that is the only one of the three that I can smell when I squeeze some out to sniff it closely specially for this review. The smell is quite strongly grapefruit and this is a pleasant citrussy fresh smell. 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 certainly when following the directions on 'how to use' (Yes, I kid you not, there are these directions on the back) 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 thrown out 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 big and flat which means that it is 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, good value hand wash but not anti bacterial.
Thank you for reading.

When we ran out of handwash in between the wife's Avon orders recently, we got this in instead. We had three bottles as it's normally £1 per bottle, but the offer at the time was three bottles for £2.50 which was a little saving for us. I've checked the Tesco website for current prices and found that the same offer is being run again at present time, so I imagine this is something they'll do frequently.
My first impressions of this were pretty good. It's not quite as thick as our usual Avon handwash is, but it's almost there. It's certainly by no means as thin and watery as those cheap 50p handwashes are that you can get. The pump dispenser works really well and is easy to use, which I think is incredibly important when you're choosing a handwash. There's nothing worse than going to wash your hands in a hurry only to find the darn thing won't work!
This lathers up really nicely and quickly, and I only need to pump the dispenser once to get all the soap I need. I really like the smell of this too. It's strong, definitely of pink grapefruit and it stays lightly on my hands after use without being too powerful or girly even. I don't think it's the most moisturising hand soap out there. The Mrs has said that she likes this but thinks her Avon ones leave her hands feeling a bit softer after use. Me, I can't say I've noticed all that much myself.
I think we'll continue to use our Avon ones in the long run, but for a quick fix in between I can't see anything wrong with this. I think I really have to give it just the three stars though, as although it's a good handwash, it isn't the best I've used and it isn't antibacterial either.
