“ Brand: Goodworks / Type: Hand Wash / Suitable for: Hand „
Good Sense is a new company selling natural products made with plant extracts and aromatherapy oils. I love aromatherapy, I really believe that different scents have an effect on your mood so I had high hopes for this product.
The handwash comes in a square bottle with a handy pump dispenser at the top, the handwash contains extracts of patachouli, orange and geranium which are uplifting scents which have an uplifting effect.
When handwash the first pumped onto my hands it is a clear gel which is runny and feels sticky. The scent of the geranium is fairly overpowering and mixes with the patachouli to give a really earthy and almost herbal smell, I would say it is more an "old granny" type scent than something young and vibrant. I can't really detect the orange scent at all which is a pity as it is one of my favourite smells. I do find the scent to be mildly uplifting but nowhere as much as the likes of Happy Hippy from Lush.
The handwash foams up well when mixed with water and rubbed into my hands, it is really good for general use for example in the bathroom for everyday handwashing but it really struggles on heavily soiled hands like if I have been working in the garden.
I find the handwash to be slightly drying so it is lucky I had the hand lotion too as I definitely need it to re-hydrate my hands after washing them.
I bought my Good Sense handwash as part of a set in the Boots sale when they were selling sets for only 25% of their original selling price so a set of handwash and hand cream cost me just £3 instead of £12, a 200ml bottle of hand wash normally costs an eye watering £8. I think this is extortionate and would never pay this much for any hand wash let alone one that I don't particularly like the scent of and is slightly drying to my skin.
