      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A decent soap.

      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.

        Disadvantages

        This would be great for younger children to engage them with hand washing x

        =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. =Design= 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= 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. =The Smell= There is only a faint smell of seaside to the soap. =Price= 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.

        A lovely handwash

        ~~~~~~~ Fishy fun ~~~~~~~ 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.

        Disadvantages

        It is all about the 3d dolphin

        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!).

        Fantastic handwash with a lovely aquatic themed design

        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)*** Aqua, Sodium Laureth Sulphate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium chloride, Cocamide MEA, Sodium Salicylate, Sodium Benzoate, Parfum, Citric Acid, Tetrasodium EDTA, Cl 17200, Cl 42090.

          A fantastic hand wash from Palmolive.

          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.

            Good hand wash

            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.

              Aquarium hand soap.

              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)

              Disadvantages

              cheap and useful

              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.

              good quality product

              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.

              Nice hand wash.

              It is hard to choose a hand wash these days because there are so many to choose from and so I usually buy one that is on offer but recently I was out shopping with some of my grandchildren and they spotted this hand wash and they wanted me to buy it because they liked the look of it because it is quite a nice looking bottle, so I couldn't argue with them in the shop so I bought it. It cost £1.75 for a 300ml bottle, it is a clear plastic bottle and it has lots of fish inside the bottle with a turtle in the centre with a setting that looks rather like a fish tank, very clever design for a hand wash and that is what attracted it to my grandchildren in the first place. The liquid inside is a clear gel kind of liquid with a slight blue colour to it. It is a nice texture and one that is soft and very smooth on the hands. The gel is quite rich too for the price. The liquid has a nice perfume smell to it but not one that is too strong. This liquid smells nice and fresh, it washes the hands nicely and removes dirt and grime with no problems at all. It has a nice consistency, it does not drip from the pump dispenser and it is easy to press it to release the liquid and my grandchildren have no problems using this one because it is such a good quality. Because it is such a good quality liquid it lathers really well on the hands with no problems at all, it can be rinsed from the hands in no time at all to leave them feeling nice and clean. I have found it does not have any problems with irritations for my grandchildren's more sensitive skin and it is one that I have found is good for my hands too. It moisturises as it cleans and it does not dry the skin at all. It is a really nice hand wash and one that I did see on offer some time ago but I did not buy it at that time because I had lots of other brands to use but I wished I had bought it when on offer because it is one that my family like very much and I could have saved lots of money. Only a small amount is needed with this one to clean the hands because the small amount I pump from the bottle is enough to clean my hands and so the bottle can last quite some time, especially if you have a lot of children or grandchildren as I have because they always use more than they actually need to at times in my home. I do recommend this liquid as I think it is a really good one for all the family to use, it is one that is a good, well known brand and one that has a nice attractive bottle for the children to enjoy and it means they want to wash their hands more often and so that has to be a good thing. I rate this one 5 stars.

                A nice handwash

                One thing I regulary purchase for my bathroom is a liquid handwash. I hate soap sitting on my sink making a mess and find these a better and more economical buy as well as more hygenic for people to use. The Packaging: The liquid handwash comes in a a round see-through plastic bottle that has a white 'arm' push to use dispenser to the top of it which twists around to be used or not. On the front of the bottle there is a pretty and vibrant coloured picture of a dolphin with yellow fishes and coral and the likes which is made a little 3D by that fact that the back inside of the bottle has a sea scene depicted. On the front of the bottle we are also told that it is Palmolive Aquarium. On the back of the bottle other information listed includes ingredients used and the size being stated (which is 300ml in this case and the only size I have seen this available to purchase in by the way) and contact details for Colgate-Palmolive are given. It's a nice bottle and nice to display in the bathroom and I do like the fact that I can switch in on off to dispense too. The Liquid Handwash: Well it is a clear unsticky gel with a great consistency to it and only a small amount comes out with each pump that you press which makes this rather economical to use. It lathers up slightly, feels soft and has a gentle aroma of what to me smells of apples to it. It makes my hands feel smooth and fresh and its easy to rinse off. My hands are left, after I dry them off feeling really really soft and in a really natural way and not in a greasy way or anything adverse like that. I'm left with a really suble fragrance on my hands though nothing heavy and no residue either. At a pound a bottle (thats what I paid In Asda whilst it was on offer but expect to pay around the couple of quid mark if not on offer in all good supermarkets) I think this is a really skin kind and cleansing product for the whole family to use if they want to!

                  A liquid hand soap which comes in a funky bottle to encourage kids to use it more often.

                  I never really stick to the same liquid soap and usually buy which even one is on offer. As I had my boys shopping with me they both picked the soap bottle which had the fish tank picture on the front and the Nemo fish inside, fortunately for me it was on offer! The soap which they chose is the Palmolive Aquarium one. ~~PACKAGING~~ The soap comes in a clear plastic bottle. On the front we have an inverted bubble area which has the fish inside and also the appearance of corals. The back of the bottle has the product details, directions for use and ingredients. The top of the bottle is a white plastic pump which means this soap is very easy to use. The whole bottle is see through as the soap inside in clear. There is also a turtle picture in the same range available but we wanted the fish one. ~~USE AND RESULTS~~ It is very simple to use the soap, before the initial use the pump lid will need to be unlocked, this is very simple to do, the plastic top just needs to be turned in the anti clockwise direction to allow it to lift up. The pump will also need a few pumps to get the liquid soap into the plastic straw inside the bottle. Once this has been done it will not need doing again. To use the soap the pump just needs to be pressed down and then the liquid soap will come out of the nozzle. I have found that two presses of the pump is more than enough to get the required amount of soap out for one hand wash. The soap is very good and not overly runny, I hate when I squeeze soap into my hands and before I have had chance to run it in it all runs off. This is also not overly thick so it is hard to make a lather. It is easy to form a lather with the soap and little amount of water and I do find a little goes a long way with it. The lather is good and means that all of the hands and fingers areas are getting covered in the soap and washed. To get the lather off hands just need to be rinsed with clean water. There is a very faint scent to the soap and I have found it hard to pin point exactly what it smells like but all I can say is that it had the bar of soap smell to it. This does get a little stronger when the soap has been made into a lather. As soon as the soap has been washed off the hands I am pleased to say the scent is too. I cannot stand having to have hands smelling of soap and products when I am trying to cook food or eat. We do get a slight smell left in the bathroom from the soap but this does not last for long and I do find it quite pleasant. I have noticed that my hands have always looked clean and moisturised after using this soap and the feeling and appearance lasts for a good few hours, well that is until I have to wash up again. I have also noticed my boys have been using this more due to the bottle design and their hands also look a lot cleaner for longer. It is great at removing pen and paints from the children's hands and they don't have to spend a long time trying to get it off. I have not suffered from any drying of the skin from using this soap and hubby who has sensitive skin has had no reactions either from using it. ~~INFO~~ The bottle size for the soap is 300ml and in my house, which has 5 people living in it, it lasts roughly 3weeks, this may last others longer but I am always getting my boys to wash their hands. The shelf life of the soap is 12 months. The soap ingredients for those wishing to know are:- Aqua, sodium C12-13, Pareth Sulfate (*A) / Sodium Laureth Sulfate (*B), Cocamidopropyl Betain, Sodium Chloride, Sodium Benzoate, Cocamide MEA, Sodium Salicylate, PArfum, Citric Acid, Tetrasodium EDTA, Limonene, Linalool, CI 17200, CI 42090. ~~PRICE AND AVAILABILITY~~ This Palmolive soap is widely available in all supermarkets and the full price for it is about £1.40. I am very pleased as I got my bottle for just £1. The whole range is currently on this offer price in Tesco. ~~RECOMMENDED?~~ I am more than happy to recommend this liquid hand soap as it cleans hands very well, moisturises and leaves then looking and feeling clean. I also like the fact there is nearly no scent to it. I think the bottle design is great and ideal for encouraging children to wash their hands more. The full 5 stars from me.

                    A really nice hand wash

                    These days there is a massive load of hand washes available, and it does seem like there is a whole world of choice when it comes to picking a nice hand wash for your bathroom. I have tried many of these different hand washes, as I usually grab which ever one is on special offer at the time when I run out of the last one. One of the last ones I bought was the Palmolive Aquarium Liquid Hand Wash. Palmolive is a company I have used products from before, and this hand wash on a half price offer in Morrisons. I grabbed a bottle for the mini price of 57p and took it home with the rest of my shopping and popped it into my bathroom. I am big on hygiene and I always have to ensure I have enough hand wash in the house, as washing my hands is a big thing for me. There is only two of us living in my place, so we do not use a lot of the hand wash quickly, but I always make sure we do not run out without having another bottle ready to be used. This Palmolive hand wash comes in a plastic bottle with a pump top, much like other hand washes. The bottle is clear, and inside the bottle, behind the actual product is an aquarium scene and this is what gives the hand wash it's name. There is little fish, and plants that you would expect to see in an aquarium, and it is all backed by a blue, sea water colour. This makes a nice little scene and I think it adds a nice touch to a bathroom. The pump is really easy to press, and just one press provides me with plenty of hand wash to ensure my hands are totally cleaned. When mixed with water, this hand wash bubbles up and spreads easily and it had a lovely, fresh scent to it. It rinses really easily and I have found that it does not leave my hands sore or dry like other hand washes have done in the past. I wouldn't say it moisturises my hands, but it does not make them dry or sore, so this is still a good thing in my book. I have sensitive skin, but this does not make my skin rash up or react badly in any way, so I feel that most people would find this to be suitable for their skin. I like the way this cleans my hands, as they always feel nice and clean after I have used this. They also smell really fresh too. The hand wash is great at removing dirt from my hands, as well as make up, hair products, and anything my niece decides is fun to throw around lol. It never seems to have a trouble getting my hands clean, and the scent is not too strong, so I do not feel like I am over powered by the scent after use. The hand wash itself is quite thick in consitency, but not so think that it feels like a gel. I found this one bottle to last about 1 and a half months, which is a good time I think. The usual price for this is £1.29 from Boots and Superdrug, and it is also available in some of the major supermarkets. I give this hand wash a 5 out of 5 stars and I recommend it to everyone.

                    See review.

                    I love Palmolive liquid soaps and I buy lots of the different fragrances of which this brand has to offer as I really think they are of a very good quality and wash the hands well too, I like to look for the special offers when I buy most of my hand washes and lots of other products as it just makes more sense and to stock them in a cupboard for when you need them. I bought a couple at the time of this range and stocked them as usual and I am now using this hand wash at the moment. I bought it a while ago on offer for only 80p for a 300ml bottle, I chose this one because I had not seen or tried it before and loved the design on the front of the bottle because I thought my little grandson would love the design as he is now always washing his hands when he comes to visit. The bottle is a transparent bottle and it has a little turtle in the centre that is set back inside the liquid, it also has a dozen or so fish that are striped and are of different sizes. It also has a back ground picture with coral too and it is mostly blue in colour. It looks really attractive to a child's eye and also for an adult as it is really cute in my opinion and very different. It also has a brightly coloured picture on the label of which is kind of coral and looks like the turtle is in a fish tank, very cute I think. The liquid looks kind of a tint of blue inside the bottle, mainly because of the blue background picture but it is a clear liquid when it is placed onto the hands. It also has a pump dispenser to pump the liquid onto the hands very easily. It has a really nice perfume fragrance and smells nice and fresh, it is a very soft texture, it feels nice and soft on the hands and it is lathers really well and the fragrance is apparent all the time it is being used and for a while after washing them. It is a gentle liquid and it is not harsh on my skin or that of my grandson's. It does not irritate my skin or his delicate skin at all and it leaves the skin feeling nice and soft to the touch after washing. It also feels soft in between my fingers while washing them and it moisturises while it works to remove any dirt on the hands just perfectly and in a way that I expect a hand wash to work. Only a little is needed to clean the hands and a little really does go a very long way with this one because of the superb quality. What I love about this one is it looks really nice in the bathroom on the basin and it is so different, funky and very different to most others on the market at the moment. It is a good attractive one to help the little ones to learn how to clean their hands after using the toilet if they are just beginning to learn how to clean them and to also encourage the older children if they are not so keen on washing their hands after using the toilet as I think it is a nice way of doing this for them to enjoy and not to find a chore as some children tend to think it can be and they can be a little lazy at times, especially if they are in a rush and want to play but need to wash their hands first. My grandson really loves the design of this bottle as he thinks the turtle is inside the bottle and we have had fun with it too as he knows a turtle is inside water and it is fabulous and we have both had such fun shaking the bottle gently to play and amuse ourselves lol. Palmolive always have good quality products and this one is certainly another good one that gives the results that I certainly expect from their products and I am delighted with it and would definitely buy it again, even at the usual price as I think it is very good value for the money and worth it in my opinion. The bottle is also a good size to hold and it is slim line and takes little space on the basin and it is a nice one if you also like to place one in the kitchen too. I highly do recommend this one for anyone to try and not just because of the design but for the nice fragrance and the results it gives to clean the hands just perfectly for all the family. I give this one 5 stars. Also on Ciao under my username Pinky50. Thank you for reading my review.
