      A top notch product

      Johnson's Junior Hand Wash...............



      The amount of hand washing that goes on in our house is unbelievable and for this reason we tend to go through soaps like there is literally no tomorrow. I buy all different types from bar soap to liquid soaps to now having bought this foam soap.

      The Junior Hand Wash from Johnson's is of course aimed at children but I have found myself liking the smell and the foaming aspect of the product that I have been using it myself on more and more occasions.

      I first came across it when in Poundland and I felt that for the 250 ml pump action bottle of soap £1 was a pretty good price. The bottle did last a very good amount of time but because I had been on the look out for it in Tesco's I had found that they were selling for £1.23 p so having saved myself 23 pence, I decided to get a few of the bottles left in Poundland to keep in the cupboard. It is a good job I did because Poundland seem to have not got any more of the stock in and the last bottle I purchased was at Tesco for 23 p more. This may not sound like much but surely every little helps.

      The design of the bottle is very good and it has a nice chunky pump which is ideal for small hands to use. The colour of the bottle is a aqua blue which may look nice and appealing for small children but of course doesn't quite fit in with the colour scheme in the bathroom! Never mind! There is a picture on the front of a sink with eyes and hands and he appears to be washing himself which again is very encouraging for the little ones.

      The soap has the "no more tears" formula which is always good as Jack does tend to get the bubbles of the soap everywhere! The product is described as an easy rinse foam which is very true as the bubbles which come from the bottle appears to be light and foamy but do make a nice lather to clean the hands of all the dirt and grime that is usually on the little man's hands. He is then able to rinse all the bubbles away easily and quickly with a little amount of water.

      I particularly like this soap for a few reasons. The first reason is the smell which is wonderfully sweet, aromatic, fruity and literally good enough to eat! The second reason is that a bottle does indeed last far longer than a regular bottle of liquid soap and this is because of the special design of pump which makes the liquid inside turn into the frothy foam which is dispensed onto the hands.

      Jack does enjoy washing his hands with this soap and although it is rather gimmicky in the design and use I feel that the soap really does work well and is an affordable price for the quality and the amount of time the bottle lasts for.

      It certainly does make hand washing time more fun for little ones. Having used the hand wash quite a lot myself, I find that the soap is not at all drying on the hands and far better than a lot of other liquid soaps from leading brands that I have tried. The beautiful smell which the soap gives off it rather strong at first but this doesn't last long or get too over powering.

      On the whole I can strongly recommend this product and I feel it is a gret price for both the quality and quantity that you are getting. It has got to be a 5 out of 5 star product rating for me and yet again another exceptional recommendation.

      Many thanks for taking the time to read.

      I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you.

        kids handwash

        I've been at the town centre the other day and popped into poundland to get some bargain for stocking fillers. I came across with this very appealing handwash in variety of colours. I found it quite encouraging for my little one to enjoy handwashing.

        FOAM
        Easy foaming hand and face wash. It's gentle no more tears formula with effective cleansers, suitable for frequent washing. The instant foam rubs easily into hands or face and rinses clean quickly.

        PACKAGING
        It's in a 250 ml turquoise blue, odd shape plastic bottle that has a long white dispenser pump. The Johnsons trademark, no more tears' logo, the words 'Junior Handwash' in white and blue font were all visible on the front. It also has a cute cartoon green sink character with foam. The pump is quite big but handy for the children to use. They definitely have an excellent packaging which caught my eyes, I actually don't have any plan of getting a handwash but It looks great and fun so I decided to get one for my little one.

        EXPERIENCE
        The foam quite work with water, upon rubbing it seems to thicken up, and can be rinse off quickly. It leaves the hands clean, fresh, smooth and has a sweet clean fresh scent that actually stays for quite sometime. The pump is very convenient to use for the kids. They also indicate that it can be used on the face which we have'nt done yet, maybe sometime I'll try to have a go.

        CONCLUSION
        The price might put you off because it normally cost around £2 so try to get one at pound shop for a bargain price. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who have children because we know how they do crazy stuff sometimes even in a simple washing of hands. Since it's gentle and can be use on face, I won't worry much If I left them to do some washing on their own and besides it's easy to use, one squirt is enough to clean hands. Definitely another great product of Johnsons which is specifically made for kids.

        Thank you for reading ;-D

        a great foam wash

        When my children had a bug a few weeks ago they needed to be washing there hands more than usual and as i didnt want there hands to get dry and sore i went on the hunt for a childrens hand wash so it wouldnt make there skin sore, i saw this in poundland and thought it was a great idea.

        It comes in a very bright blue bottle with a pump action lid which is very easy for a child to use on there own and disperses a good amount for them to be able to wash there hands. The front of the bottle tells me that it is a junior hand wash which is an easy rinse foam and has the no more tears formula which i found a bit odd for a hand wash untill i read the back of the bottle where it states it can be used to wash there faces aswell.

        It foams realy well and cleans your hands very gently, it washes off a lot easier than soap or adult hand washes which is ideal for my children as it means there is less risk of them leaving it on there skin to irritate them, it has a realy nice smell to it that is a fruity smell which lingers on your hands for ages.

        The bottle has to be used with in 12 months of opening but only lasted two weeks with my children so no risk of it going off, it is definately something i would recomend and would buy again.

        Disadvantages

        Foamy handwash for kids

        I came across this in Boots and it was almost £2. The 'Johnson's Junior Handwash' comes in a small blue bottle with a white top in the form of a pump. It seems a small sized bottle but contains 250ml.

        The front ot the package has the Johnson's name in dark blue at the top and 'no more tears' trademark logo which means it is 'as gentle to the eyes as pure water' . The words 'Junior Handwash' are in white and blue font so this stands out when you see it on the counter.

        It has a small cartoon-like picture showing a green bathroom sink with orange hands putting foam on it's 'face' and the words 'EASY RINSE FOAM' in a green caption round the picture - the pic's a plus for the kids who'd be using it I suppose to draw them to it when they see it in the bathroom or in the shops for that matter..:)

        To use, you need to press at the top of the easy to push pump and use with water. The handwash itself comes out of the small bottle already foamed and the pump brings out enough to use in one wash.

        The foam is white and has a clean fresh and sweet scent. It foams more with water and you can rinse it off quickly, convenient for the kids.

        It leaves the hands clean, fresh and smooth and the scent lingers for sometime. It can be used on the face too.

        Thought it may encourage my tot to wash her hands after using the bathroom and it did, the pump is handy for them to pump the handwash out and it is also already foamed so easy for them to use when in a hurry..

        The ingredients are indicated on the back of the bottle: 'Aqua, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Polysorbate 20, Sodium laureth sulfate, Citric acid, Polyquaternium-10, Tetrasodium EDTA, Sodium Benzoate, Phenoxyethanol, Methylaraben, Propylparaben, CI 19140, CI 47005, CI 61570'
        It's got the 12M logo so you can use it for twelve months after opening.

        It smells good, foams easily, leaves a fresh clean feeling, leaves hands soft and smooth and the pump makes it easy for the kids to use..

        It is kinda pricey though considering it is handwash and there's plenty of handwash on the market for half the price so I only buy this occassionally for 'the rinse foam' experience..:)

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          great for kids, they will need help to use though.

          My son chose this, along with a few other toiletries on the agreement that he would start washing his hands, having a bath, brushing his teeth, etc without me having to literally carry him upstairs and force him to do it!

          Guess what, it worked!!!

          The bottle is in a deep turquoise green shade and has a long white dispenser pump. the front is adorned with a picture of a cartoon sink with hands. I think he is trying to wash himself and has a huge grin on his face! Brilliant - Just the kind of behaviour that is going to encourage my son to do the same, lol.

          It is called Johnsons Junior Handwash, easy rinse foam and has the red 'no more tears' logo on the left hand side. With this not being shampoo and there not being much chance of them getting it in their eyes, I can only assume the tears refer to the ones that are shed during our many heated discussions on why it is important to wash your hands!

          it used to be like talking to a brick wall but now we have a cartoon sink showing how it's done, he actually seems to get it!

          The dispenser is one of those that you can turn left to close or right to open and is quite broad so perfect for little hands.

          When you put your hand under the pump and press on the dispenser though, it completely misses and goes flying straight forward. It is almost impossible to angle your hand that way so I have to pick it up and aim it in to my son's hands, which means he can only use it supervised. He is four and to use it he would have to pick it up with one hand, pump with the other and have a third hand to catch it.

          The foam itself is quite light and fine, it looks like it isn't really going to do much but when you start to rub it in it seems to thicken up and easily coats your hands. It is a very, very pale green and smells of apples. Not actual apples though, the sweet and sugary, bubblegum type smell of apples.

          It washes off really easily and leaves your hands feeling quite soft, unfortunately they don't smell of apples though.

          It is a 250ml bottle and I have seen it sold at around 1.99 but we get most of our Johnsons stuff from the pound shop so have a look in their first.

          I would recommend the handwash, the only problem is the pump, which I have already mentioned. But, If it gets your kids washing their hands it's well worth it. My son now washes his hands automatically after using the toilet or helping me cook.

            Handy hand wash

            Johnson Junior Handwash

            Marketed at getting even reluctant bathers and hand washers into the bathroom, children will undoubtedly be impressed with the marketing on this one. Inspired by the sing along song for the shampoo, we had to have this.

            The blurb on the back tells me that this will make children want to wash, and that the fact that it’s so gentle means that it’s suitable for frequent washing.

            The product itself comes in a kind of blue/turquoise bottle containing 250ml of the stuff and not surprisingly has one of those push down applicators to get the handwash out. I say not surprisingly, because most hand washes come like this, and who wants grubby hands picking up a bottle to get to the wash only to have it fall out of them?

            Press down the applicator and out comes the handwash; it really is so simple a child could use it…that’s after mum has had the unenviable job of turning the applicator this way and that to loosen it up, or whatever it needs to have done to it to ensure the stuff comes out!

            The handwash itself is a foam with a fruity smell and it does feel all light on my hands. Rub it in to commence the handwashing, and we are surprised at just how foamy it gets. So, lots of fruity smells to encourage the ablutions. Rinsing off is as simple as it should be given that the main focus is children, simply place fruity hands under tap and the foam will wash away, leaving not a lot of tide marks on the sink, but a fair bit of foam round the plug hole.

            ~~Price and Availability~~

            Widely available at supermarkets and chemists, the RRP is £1.99

            ~~Other products~~

            Also available in this range are the shampoos- easy rinse and easy comb, both of which are popular in our house.

            ~~Made by~~

            Johnson and Johnson

            ~~My Verdict~~

            It being made by Johnsons, and because I invariably like and trust their products, I was willing to be sold on the idea, so didn’t take much convincing to buy it.

            The handwash is easy to use, smells nice and fruity and is in fact very easy to rinse off, although the after effect is a very faint not unpleasant fruity smell- excellent so that I can check she really has washed her hands.

            We have had a couple of these bottles of the product now, and one of the things which impressed me is that it doesn’t seem to dry out and get clogged towards the end of the bottle. This seems to go on till almost the last drop of foam, and then if you really want to be frugal, you can unscrew the top off and tip the rest onto hands.

            One squirt of the product is enough to clean hands, and even young children can manage to press down the applicator with no trouble.

            For an effective, pleasant smelling handwash, you can’t go far wrong with this one.

            Thanks for reading.
