I had a lady friend staying last month and like most females she left some items behind when she went back to where she came from, in this case Holland. Item number one was her mobile phone charger, of course, and item number two some ‘lady’s bag things’. Those items have been mailed back to her country but I have kept the third, a bottle of ‘Palmolive Aquarium handwash’. I’m not suggesting she purchased it here because ’its pretty looking with a pretty things inside’ but its pretty looking with a pretty things inside. The pretty thing inside varies but in this case a leaping dolphin over a mermaid atop and around a coral reef. Although it’s not a pink product it’s still a girly marketing ploy that makes women by this stuff by the crate full. It’s ironic as if the dolphin was swimming in this chemical handwash soup or swallowed the plastic bottle on some far flung Bikini Atoll it would die pretty quickly. Hey, the product may even have been tested on dolphins to make sure it won’t harm humans. Either way it’s a clever marketing gimmick. I suppose if you put a Manchester United footballer inside one scoring a goal blokes would buy them too.
The product remained unopened in my bathroom cabinet and so I have decided to use it up. It has press top delivery and a transparent bottle and liquid in appearance so you can see the lovely ocean bed scene. As yet no plastic bags and parts of MH370 floating about in there. It’s a gel and so stays where you squirt it and so easy to rub in and cleanse your lovely hands after using the toilet or getting ready to prepare food. I have been using it all month and plenty left and a 300ml bottle as standard. It’s unclear if the dolphin thing uses up any of the 300ml space like the way plastic in Kinder Eggs makes them a rip off. The presser doesn’t release too much so not unwanted wastage. Toothpaste sellers soon twigged that the bigger the whole the more you waste and so the more they sell.
It’s interesting to note that cleansing and disinfectant product sales exploded at about the time the Twin Towers did. The fear factor of just about everything was ramped up for the new millennium that day and we became scared of everything, including micro bugs, bugs we are supposed to be exposed to so to help build our resistance to other bugs. Our need to use antibiotics for just about everything is expected to be the reason why humans begin to die out in the second half of this century as superbugs eat us alive.
I wouldn’t say this handwash is any better or worse than any other as they are all made of the same stuff. I use it for a shower gel as that’s what blokes do, as I use conditioner as a shower gel. Clearly it’s been tested on animals to make sure no damage to humans. Hey, that’s the world we live in. I would recommend it and it comes in at around a quid in most supermarkets but that on special. They charge more than Tesco’s generic handwash because Tesco’s generic handwash doesn’t have a leaping dolphin in it. I’m guessing the more creative of you can use the empty bottle and dolphin to make something creative. I will be filling it with beach sand or my old marbles.
I bought this Palmolive Aquarium hand wash from a local discount store for just £1. The recommended retail price of this hand wash is £1.95. This pump action bottle is 300ml which is probably an average size for a handwash and this size usually lasts for at least three months so this isn't too bad.
It has a lovely clean fresh smell and is suitable for all the family. I find it lathers up really quickly and feels lovely and soft on your hands. I have only ever had to use one pump of soap at a time so it is good value compared to a cheaper bottle where you have to use several pumps each time. I think this bottle looks very pretty and is different from others as it has a lovely picture of colourful fishes on the front which makes it stand out from others on the supermarket shelves.
I find that even after I have rinsed it off it does leave a lovely fragrance on my hands and they always feel very soft and moisturised. I have used other cheaper hand washes in the past and they have made my hands feel quite dry afterwards and I have had to apply hand cream each time I used it, however I don't have to really use a hand cream with this.
I do like this Palmolive Aquarium hand wash and would definitely buy it again and recommend it as a good quality handwash which cleans and leaves my hands feeling clean and moisturised.
I imagine I was initially attracted to this Palmolve aquarium handwash due to the cut packaging. It is a transparent handwash bottle (containing 300ml) with an aquarium scene with a fish set back in the bottle. It is colourful and lovely looking (I think children in particular will like it, and it will hopefully make handwashing more fun) - a welcome addition to any kitchen or bathroom I think. On the back of the bottle is a label with loads on information on such as ingredients (which I won't regurgitate as you can see for yourself if buyingO.
We are currently using this handwash in our bathroom. Personally I prefer handwashes to soaps as I find them easier to use, and less stressful than ending up dropping wet bars of soap on the bathroom floor. I'm not sure they're actually more hygienic, but I like to tell myself they are.
To use this simply push down on the nozzle, get some of the blue liquid soap on your hand, run under some warm water, lather up with the other hand and rinse. The smell of this handwash is lovely and fresh, with an aqua fragrance. It makes my hands feel clean, with a nice scent, but nothing which is overpowering or lingers which I wouldn't want.
I'm not sure what I paid for this, but looking on the Internet it costs just 89p in Superdrug which is very good value for such a high quality handwash. Unlike cheaper brands it is thick so less is needed, and the bottle seems to last for a long time. I would highly recommend this handwash and give it 5 out of 5 stars.
WHAT IS IT?
This is hand wash that is made by Palmolive. It is called Aquarium hand wash because the bottle is designed so that it looks like an aquarium and it has got a little fish floating in the hand wash also.
WHAT I THINK
I do not buy this hand wash special and only if I see it when we need hand wash or if it is on a special price promotion like it is alot in the supermarkets.
I like that this hand wash has got a soft fragrance and it does not irritate the skin on my hands and it is not too strong for my children to use on their hands also because a design like this says to me that it is for children most of all.
It makes my hands feel very clean and I like also that the texture of the hand wash is thin because I think if hand wash is too thick it takes a long time to make sure your hands are rinsed properly, this rinses off very easy and when that has been done my skin is soft and very clean in feeling. I think my hands do not smell very clean like they have just been washed and that is a disadvantage to me.
My children like it very much when I buy this hand wash because they like to look at the fish in the hand wash and sometimes tip the bottle up to try and make the fish come to the top of the gel but that does not ever happen. It is a clever bottle for making children interested in washing their hands I think.
This hand wash does not make my hands feel dry and I think it can be used all the time without causing a reaction even on the skin of children and that is very good.
A bottle of this hand wash has got 300mls of it in and that costs only £1.79. I think that is value because it is very good hand wash and the bottle looks very nice on the edge of my skin also.
5 Dooyoo Hearts.
Aquarium is a strange concept for a handsoap… in an aquarium you’d find fish, algae, that sort of thing…? So quite what made me buy this product I can’t exactly remember, but it’s one I’ve gone back to time and again. There are certainly a couple of things to like about the packaging – one is how pure and clear the soap is. You can see perfectly clearly through the bottle, and this is ideal as the other fabulous thing is a 3D aquarium scene playing out somehow within the bottle. Somehow there is a fish actually within the soap…
The other factor which would have probably played a part in choosing this one would be that Palmolive is a soap of my childhood, a brand which immediately brings trust and reassurance of gentleness for my skin. Also, a 300ml dispenser cost 90p last time I bought it, so it sits really favourably among the other brands I would normally consider.
The smell of the soap is reminiscent of classic Palmolive – the old green soap – although not as “soapy”, if such a concept could exist! More subtle somehow.
Actually using the dispenser is the only problem with this soap, and I’m being really picky. The bottle is round and smooth/shiny, and the pump dispenser on the top is also rounded and shiny. This means with wet hands I have tipped the bottle over on a few occasions, trying to push down on the pump, or my hand slid off. That said, it is an easy dispenser, and only half a push will dispense enough of this soap to allow me to wash my hands thoroughly.
The only thing that really stops this soap from being a true great in my liquid soap world is that it has no anti-bacterial properties, which I do prefer to have in my kitchen. It’s ideal for the bathroom, particularly in view of the water theme, and being clear, it won’t clash with any colour schemes! All these things matter!!
When it comes to hand wash I usually buy the least expensive. This is because I only use it after I have been to the toilet because I don't like picking up the bar of soap I use to wash myself with. The usual brand is Carex so this brand was quite different from my usual hand wash. However, this was on offer in Wilkinson for 90p, therefor cheaper than my usual brand so I bought it.
The first thing that lured me in was the 3D effect this bottle has. The one I chose had a Dory fish on the front. There are different one's with different fish on the front, but all have the same liquid soap inside and design. This soap container is an oval shape and it helps to reinforce the 3D effect on the fish. The back of the container has a coral reef and then the fish picture lies just on the inside of the front of the container. On the front of the container it has flowers and overall it creates the 3D effect. The consistency of the liquid soap also helps with this. You can acknowledge this because the more you dispense the liquid soap the more it depletes in the bottle. When the bottle is half empty the design looks plain instead of 3D. Therefore, it is the liquid soap that brings the 3D design to life.
The liquid soap itself looks quite thick inside the container. However, the first time I dispensed it, it shot out into the sink and totally missed my hand. This made me realize that this liquid soap is less thicker than I thought. The liquid soap is a nice consistency once you get used to the dispense. It is transparent and has a light floral scent. It also has an aqua scent to it. Though it has fishes on the container I can't really say it reminds me of the ocean, but it is overall nice.
The product is nice and soft on the hands and lathers quite good with a little water. Too much water and it washes away too quickly. I also notice that it makes my hands feel soft. The scent of the soap disappears after around an hour of using it.
This product is usually a little over a £1.00 when bought in stores like Superdrug, but I got it on offer for 90p in Wilkinson. I would recommend this product for a fresh change from the usual hand wash. It's suitable for all ages and maybe for training children to wash their hands as it is fun looking.
=Palmolive Aquarium Liquid Hand Wash=
I always like liquid soaps as I think they are more hygienic than a bar of soaps. I like to shop around with liquid soaps and get what I consider is good value, and whilst in Home Bargains, I noticed that they had the Palmolive Aquarium range.
The aquarium is the same design on all the bottles, but the characters are different, they include Dolphin (which we brought, as my daughter is mad in dolphins, plus there is Sea turtle and Clown Fish.
The bottle contains 300ml of hand wash, which is a lightly scented hand wash and is colourless, according to the bottle the PH value is 5.2. The soap is dispensed via a white pump and delivers a set measure which seems to be the perfect amount.
There is only a faint smell of seaside to the soap.
This does vary, I have seen it as much as £2.50, but I paid £1 for this, hence I was very pleased with the price.
=Are they worth it?=
I think this is a really good hand wash and a bottle lasts us about 3 weeks to a month, which the amount our bathroom gets used that is good going, I like the fact that as soon as you add water the gel goes into foam, and once you have washed your hands they feel really soft, your hands get a good clean without being dried out.
***Ingredients (from the bottle)***
Aqua, Sodium Laureth Sulphate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium chloride, Cocamide MEA, Sodium Salicylate, Sodium Benzoate, Parfum, Citric Acid, Tetrasodium EDTA, Cl 17200, Cl 42090.
I was in the supermarket recently and needed a new handwash, and my four year old immediately spotted this one and asked if we could get it. As it was just £1, I was happy to add it to my basket. I frequently purchase Palmolive handwashes, so I was happy that this would be of a good quality.
The reason this caught my little girl's eye is of course the packaging! This is no ordinary handwash, as the front of the plastic has an aquarium design and, suspended inside the bottle, is a fish. There are actually a few different designs available, so my daughter chose her favourite.
Easy to use
Other than the design elements, the packaging is much the same as other Palmolive handwashes. The bottle is plastic and has a pump action dispenser at the top. We currently have this in my kitchen, and the design encourages my daughter to wash her hands before meals, which is an added bonus! It contains antibacterial ingredients, so helps to kill germs.
The scent of this handwash is light and fresh, and slightly fruity. It is the sort of scent I really like and it seems appropriate for the fun design of this handwash. The wash itself is clear and has a fairly thin consistency, so it is easy to apply and washes off very quickly too. After use, my hands feel clean and fresh, and the smell lingers too.
In summary ..
This is a great handwash and I definitely recommend it. The packaging is fun and quirky, but it isn't tacky so I think this is a nice bottle to have even if you don't have children! But the fact that the design could encourage children to wash their hands is an added bonus, and makes this one I will definitely buy again.
This usually retails at around the £2 mark, but is often on offer.
I must admit, I do not normally buy hand wash. Normally, I use soap, but in the run up to Christmas I was in Superdrug picking up a few choice items for the house (The Snowman toilet roll etc.,) and the 3D design bottles of Palmolive Hand Wash caught my eye on the shelf.
I was instantly drawn to the clever (simple, yet effective!) pack designs. After standing staring at the row of bottles for some time, I opted for the bottle design with a dolphin swimming through a coral reef with small yellow fish following it. The hand wash itself if clear so Palmolive have cleverly put a sticker on the back of the bottle to create the background of an underwater ocean scene then they have stuck a dolphin onto the pump part inside the bottle and finished off the design with the sticker on the front of the pack to provide the foreground and create the 3D effect. I love it. For some reason it instantly lifted my mood and even now, every time I see the bottle, it makes me smile.
At the time, the pack (300ml) was on sale for 99p, so it was a definite purchase. When I got the pack home, I did put it into the cupboard until closer to Christmas. When I decided to use this product and housed it on the sink in the bathroom, the pump was easy to activate- just twist and it popped up ready to dispense. The hand wash is lightly scented - the Aquarium one has a smell a bit like melon to it. The bottle does not indicate any specific intended scent (I've not been to many aquariums but I doubt they smell like melon). The only product information on the back of the pack states it is pH neutral at 5.2 in 14 different languages.
My only 'issue' with this product is the flat wide pump. for some reason it squirts the hand wash forwards and not down when you put your hand under the dispenser so I wasted a fair bit of it when it squirted into the sink and not down into my hand. This really is something I feel Colgate-Palmolive (the manufacturers) would have picked up on at the product development stage- unless I am just unusual in expecting a pump dispensing hand wash to dispense downwards into my hand when I use it.
The hand wash itself is pretty standard. the bottle doesn't state it is antibacterial- as far as I can tell, it is just your average hand wash but in a fab bottle. I did notice my hands felt oddly smooth whilst sat at work a few days after first opening the pack, but that could just be my hands adjusting to hand wash instead of a bog-standard value soap! Overall, my impression is that the 3D picture on the pack took up the development budget of the product and the hand wash itself, is standard. Nothing to shout about in itself- middle of the road in scent, lathering capability and performance- it is 'nice'. Not awful and not life-changing (but I doubt a hand wash would be life changing!). It does it's job. But, I am going to give it 4 stars (one extra star for the 3D packaging that for some reason has entertained me!).
I always used to have Lush soaps in my bathroom as I've never been a big fan of the clunky handwash dispensers and find that they take up alot of space on the sink (I hate clutter) but after having my first child who is now at the potty training stage we've come to realise that hard slippy soaps are not practical for my sons little hands. So whilst shopping in town I popped into the Savers store which had a number of different designs of the Palmolive aquarium there is the same reef design on the back of the bottle but the moveable character is different, there is a choice of Dolphin, Sea Turtle and Clown Fish (My son's choice as he loves the film Finding Nemo).
The bottle contains 300ml of the lightly scented colourless handwash which is pH 5.2 (according to the bottle). The scent funnily enough reminds me of summer along the cliffs of Staithes as it's a combination of white floral and salt which is a really pleasant scent especially for the price. The plastic bottle comes with a white pump dispenser which pumps just the right amount of product into your hands and thankfully (unlike the Radox handwash) doesn't drip the gel after you've used it down the side of the bottle and therefore all over the sink - yeuch. The bottle is very stable and the pump is easily used by my 2 year old son without it slipping and sliding off the top of the sink. The Palmolive handwashes are generally sold on offer and I've never paid more than a £1 for this handwash although if you go into a store where it isn't on offer and you're not willing to shop around then you can pay the full rrp price of £1.99 (which is crazy).
My son and I have been using this handwash for quite a while now and can report absolutely no adverse events skin wise and find that the bottle lasts a good 1.5 - 2 months. The gel foams just the right amount and leaves the skin clean without drying it out.
***Ingredients (from the bottle)***

Hand washing is something that I am big on firmly believing that regular hand washing prevents illness for the members of my home. By encouraging my husband to wash his hands before meals and at regular intervals, even when his hands are not necessarily soiled or dirty we have been able to cut down on illnesses (at least it has worked out that way, whether it is a coincidence or not I don't know?!). I make sure that these is always a hand wash by the kitchen sink and by the bathroom sink. I also keep a regular stock underneath my kitchen sink to ensure that one area is never without hand wash. This particular hand wash is one I picked up last month for just 99p from Tesco. This offer is running for another week for anyone who wants to stock up instore or online.
This hand wash is a 300ml bottle that is recyclable. There is an aquarium design on the bottle with coral and a large fish inside the bottle too. There are different bottles available in the aquarium range too and we received two different ones, both with one fish inside and the coral area on the bottle. The bottle is clear, as is the liquid, and there is a large white pump action dispenser. To open this for the first time is simple with a twist required. This is very simple, unlike some other hand wash bottles that I have used in the past, and this is a plus point for me. The first time I used this hand wash I had to pump it a few times to get the liquid to release but then once it started to come through I have found that one pump is ample to dispense enough liquid to wash my hands reasonably with.
This hand wash is quite thick but it produces a lovely amount of lather sufficient for even large hands to be washed with one pump. This hand wash smells lovely; fresh and clean. My hands feel moisturised and protected once I wash this off and even when I dry my hands they are still soft and cared for afterwards. My hands do not get dry or sore after using this which is a huge plus point for me as some hand washes really do not agree with me and I end up with sore skin. This hand wash works very well at removing any dirt or muck that might have accumulated on my hands and my nails have been spotlessly clean too while using this.
This hand wash really is worthy of 5/5. The special offer price is very reasonable with pound shops also selling this too for the bargain price. I love the little fish within the bottle and my nephew was suitably impressed with this when we tipped up the bottle and managed to get it move around! This is a lovely little novelty, particularly for a low price and this hand wash works incredibly well. Once this starts to run down the pump dispenses much less hand wash meaning a few presses are required but this is the same with any pump action product once it is running low. I love that this removes dirt, is kind to my skin and is so cheap too. This is a real winner and I'm glad I picked up a couple of bottles while the price was low. A bottle of this lasts around two weeks in our home because we are very regular hand washers and we feel that this is fantastic value. I will definitely buy this hand wash again on special offer too.
I've been lucky enough to get a decently well paid job for over the summer, so am happy to say that I have fewer financial worries at the moment than I used to. I'm still trying to be frugal, however, so that I can save up as much as possible for me (hopefully) moving to Germany in September. I therefore still try to get household essentials such as hand wash and washing up liquid on offer when possible. Over the past couple of months, there have been a couple of occasions in which Carex and other brand hand washes have been on some sort of offer, and I took advantage of these by buying a couple for the bathroom and the kitchen. Because of this, I've got to try quite a few different ones in the Palmolive range as well as other brands as I try to go for something a bit different each time.
== Palmolive Aquarium Liquid Hand Wash ==
This is a hand wash that, I have to say, I bought almost at random because it was on some sort of offer. The appearance of the hand wash is pleasant enough, with a clear liquid and bottle made more interesting by the inclusion of some small fish, but this really wasn't a factor in my decision to purchase this hand wash. I imagine that small children may be more interested in this hand wash due to its 'aquarium' nature and it might even make them more willing to wash their hands after using the bathroom, but as my flatmates and I are all in our early twenties and manage to wash our hands without any outside influence, this wasn't really relevant for us. All I was really after was something that would allow us to wash our hands well before cooking or after using the bathroom and this one looked like it would be able to do the job.
== What I Thought ==
In general, this hand wash was totally fine. While I can't tell exactly how much bacteria on my hands it was responsible for destroying, my hands did feel cleaner after using it and it lathered up and rinsed away as well as you would expect. In terms of the actual soap itself, I have no issues with Palmolive Aquarium and would be happy to recommend it.
The only complaint I have about this is in terms of the container it came in, which unfortunately broke on my way home from the shop. Considering that I didn't have it in the same shopping bag as anything heavy, I was very surprised to find the dispenser had snapped most of the way off only fifteen minutes after buying it. Since it was still possible to get hand wash out and there was nothing wrong with the soap itself, we used it anyway, but I have to say that I'm unimpressed with the quality of the container if it can break this easily.
== Conclusion ==
This was a decent hand wash, but I would be put off buying it again in case the dispenser broke as easily as it did last time. In terms of price it's also decent at £1.99 per 300ml in most supermarkets (although, it's currently on offer at a bargain price of 86p at Superdrug, which is very cheap) but isn't the cheapest hand wash available. While I wouldn't be bothered if one of my flatmates bought this for us to use, I doubt I'd buy it myself due to the problem we had with it last time.
I was with my boyfriend in my local Pound store the other day and we noticed the Palmolive hand wash on offer. They had various different types of hand wash, how-ever seeing as me and my boyfriend have 2 very large fish-tanks in our lounge and we're always buying new fish we thought the Palmolive Aquarium hand wash was a perfect choice. As the product was purchased in my local Pound store it did indeed cost me just £1.00, so we purchased 2 of them. The product comes in one size which is 300ml and can also be purchased from local supermarkets for approximately £1.73.
The hand wash comes in a pump bottle which is clear so you can see the hand wash soap inside the actual bottle. The bottle has some colour on it from coral and under-sea detailing on the front of it. On the bottle is also a cut out of a blue fish which at first I thought was printed on the bottle. The pump to the bottle is white and you simply need to twist it to unlock it, to ensure it starts working and dispensing the hand soap when the pump top is pressed down. The design of the bottle is attractive with about 4-5 different designs to choose from, each with a different fish or animal pictured in the bottle. The design of the product makes it fun for kids to use as well. On the back of the bottle is a list of ingredients and some other information such as details for Palmolive.
The hand soap is clear in colour and it states on the back of the bottle that it's dermatologically tested and is a mild liquid hand wash. This sounded good for me as I sometimes suffer from eczema and some of the Carex hand washes make my hands itchy and even drier. The hand wash was to be placed in our bathroom near the sink so it was in easy reach when washing your hands. I pressed the pump down once and a nice amount of liquid dispensed into my hand. The liquid did feel thick, how-ever as I rubbed my hands together this lathered up slightly into a nice soap and I was able to use this to cover my hands and give them a good wash. The soap has a nice light smell to it which is very pleasant and smells fresh. The soap rinsed off my hands easily and left them feeling really clean and soft. I dried my hands on a towel and was expecting my hands to start itching, I was how-ever very surprised when they didn't and the soap hadn't left my skin feeling dry, which was great.
When the bottle was half empty my boyfriend messed around with the bottle and by turning it and shaking it managed to turn the fish upside down. This is when we found out that the fish wasn't printed on the back of the inside of the bottle but it was actually a piece of plastic inside the liquid soap. As the bottle gets less soap in, you do need to press the pump 2-3 times to get a decent amount of soap out. When the bottle starts to get to this stage we normally replace it with a new one and then when it has been used a few times we then unscrew the pump lid and pour it into the new one so we don't waste any.
This is a great hand wash with a lovely design that we buy over and over again. In terms of value, I can't complain as the product is very good value for just £1.00. The design of the packaging makes the product fun to use and also gives the area around the sink a little bit of colour as well. The soap is kind to my skin even though I suffer from eczema occasionally. I found that the soap left my hands feeling clean and soft, and the scent of the soap also stated on my hands a bit too which was pleasant. I will be buying this product again when the current one runs out and I recommend this product to others.
(review also on ciao)
I prefer to buy the liquid soaps as bars of soap get soggy and leave a mess on the sink as they start to disolve when wet. With Palmolive liquid type soaps you get a nice bottle that can be put in the bathroom, kitchen and downstairs toilet for people to wash their hands quickly and easily.
I buy these liquid hand wash bottles from out local Savers shop in Hereford and they only cost 99p each, the one I like is this Palmolive Aquarium liquid hand wash, it is a nice fun type design of a fish tank on the plastic bottle. It can be recycled after its empty and has a pump action dispencer, so that you get just enough for one hand wash each pump, unless you have really dirty hands that it.
To open the top twists then pops up and stays up, so that when you press the top a small amount of liquid hand wash lands on your hand.
This lathers up nicely as it is a thick consistancy not too runny and covers the hands to clean and freshen when needed.
I like to have these handy bottles in all of my rooms that have sinks in them and they last around a month which is good for the price. The scent is nice and fresh and lingers on the hands after using.
They are dermatalogically tested so you can use them if you have sensative skin.
The bottle is 300ml of liquid hand wash so you get quite a lot of washes out of each botlle before it is empty.
I like this product as it isn't harsh on the skin and after use the skin feels soft and smooth not dry or greasy just use and rinse with warm water and your ready to go about your business again.
They are easy to use, leave no mess on your sink and are affordable for anyone's budget.
We are big fans of liquid soaps and handwashes in our house and we always have several in stock under our kitchen cupboard as we try to use different ones in order to encourage the little lad to wash his hands when he gets in from school.
We bought the Palmolive Aquariam Hand Wash for just 99p from Home Bargains and the reason we bought it wasn't because it was low in price, it was because the packaging looked attractive and it appealed to our little lad, who actually pointed it out to us on the shelf. We thought it might entice him to wash his hands more often and seeing as it was cheap into the bargain we decided to buy a bottle. Palmolive Aquariam Hand Wash is unusual in its design in that it has a sort of little three D aquariam effect inside the see through plastic bottle and it looks like a little picture of under the sea with various fish and sealife. The little lad kep looking at it so we bought it and he now uses it every day - we have a bottle in the kitchen and another one in the downstairs toilet.
The liquid is clear and of a good consistency - it is not too runny nor is it too thick either. It is perfect consistency. The smell is neautral and not overpowering and suitable for both males and females. It is soothing and cleansing and rinses off well and does not leave any sticky residue on your hands or fingers after you have rinsed. We think it is much more hygienic than using a bar of soap, especially in the toilet.
It is dispensed in the normal manner of these liquid soaps - ie pump action and the hand was comes out of the bottle pumper in firm easy jets and does not look or feel gloopy at all. If it hits your clothes it does not stain and washes out perfectly too.
One bottle lasts for ages because you don't actually need to use that much liquid to get a good lather and it foams up very well. It is not drying and seems to be quite moistursing and does not irritate the skin even on the little lad who has eczema.
Great product and thoroughly recommended by us all.
