It's been a very busy time in our household, not so much from the Christmas festivities but more from the fact that we are looking after our neighbours dogs for two weeks whilst they are away and this involves walking them four times a day and, our own dog three times! So we have been outside a lot and even though we live in Spain the wind and cold weather takes it's toll on my hands.
Three dogs take a lot of patting and stroking and my hands have been feeling the worse for wear but Palmolive have been there to help with their comforting Naturals Milk and Honey Hand Wash. I prefer liquid hand wash to bar soap as I find it creates less mess and the containers can often look attractive too. Milk and Honey comes packed in a curved container of clear plastic topped with a white pump dispenser. The top has to be released with a twist when newly bought and can be closed right down if you want to transport the soap safely without accidentally getting a squirt of it if you catch the top.
On the front is a depiction of honey pouring into milk along with the information that it is a nutritive liquid soap which contains natural extract of milk and honey. On the reverse of my Spanish bought bottle it tell us that it also contains aloe vera which is one of my most favourite ingredients for caring for my skin. It claims to protect the skin from excessive dryness and leave it nourished and soft to the touch day after day. It is also terminologically tested.
Pale, glossy yellow in colour the soap is easily pumped into the palm of your hand with one push of the white top giving just the right amount needed without any mess. The scent is warm and comforting and actually does smell to me like milk and honey! Once you have added water to your hands it foams up and cleans the hands well getting rid of any trace of my current pack of dogs and doggy treats! My hands feel soft and cared for after use and the scent lingers on until it is time for the next walk. I will be glad when my friend returns!
I am really pleased with this product, it has a lovely scent and the aloe vera which it contains is really helping my hands which were suffering in the cold and windy weather. I would like to know if they do a bath or shower gel in this range as well as I'm sure I would like it too. My bottle contains 300ml and has a 12month life after opening and is made of recyclable plastic. It was bought in my local Spanish supermarket but I will keep my eye out for it in Morrisons in Gibraltar where, at times, I have seen it on offer for just over a pound which I consider to be a good price for a quality hand wash. Got to go, time to walk the dogs!
5 stars from me for a lovely hand wash.
Thanks for reading my review, I also post on Ciao under splishsplash.
We've been trying out a few different handsoaps in our bathroom. Many don't meet what we are looking for- a pleasant but subtle perfume, a good formula that doesn't leave your hands with dry skin and a product in a nice enough looking bottle. We used this and it met what we needed.
Fragrance - It has a good fragrance that you smell on your hands as you are using it but once washed off doesn't linger and overpower. I've found lots of others do linger and I find this a problem if you are eating and don't want the flavour mixed up with the perfume of your handsoap. Having said that there is just enough scent that if you wanted to check your little darlings had washed their hands properly -you probably still could pick up the scent of this soap on their little mits for a few minutes after washing. I wouldn't buy it every time as I like some variety, but happy enough when I do.
Effectiveness - Most important for handsoap is does it do the job? It seems to me that it does. Hands are left with a clean feeling after use and grease and dirt removed effectively. It isn't one of the antibacterial soaps so I don't use it in the kitchen only in the bathroom. It seems to do the job it was designed to do effectively. Dirt from gardening or newspaper print comes off well. At the same time I have been able to wash my hands several times a day and not feel that my skin is overly dry. I don't think it has moisturisers in it so I think this is because it is reasonably mild.
Bottle versus bar of soap - The bottle itself it pretty good. I prefer bottle soap as I find bars are a bit unhygenic and leave a lot of residue on the basin or sink which takes extra time to remove.
Dispensing - The pump action of this soap dispenses a good amount of soap and if you only push it half of the way can give out small amounts suitable for smaller or less dirty hands.
Practical bottle - It has a wider sturdy base which means it isn't skimming across the bathroom top when you press the dispenser nor does it fall over too easily. As it is transparent you can see how much you have used - its a good way to alert you to look out for when it is next on special offer and replace.
Environmentally friendliness - I haven't seen a refillable version in the shops which is a shame as this would be a major plus point in stopping my recycling bin/ rubbish bin from overflowing. I like plastics in products I buy to be recycled after my use- I want to do my bit towards helping the environment and stopping our landfill sites from being overfilled. I wouldn't want to see any extra packaging around the product so I think it looks good as it is.
Look of the product - The bottle itself is nice enough looking. its not the most glamourous on the high street. But it does the job well. The neutral colour of the soap goes with most colourschemes in bathrooms. It would go very well in a neutral tone bathroom with stone effect tiles or such like. Equally it would be good against a stronger colour - turquoise for example.
Palmolive is a well known brand and has a good wide range that most people would be happy taking off the shelf in the supermarket/ chemist /etc
I love hand wash and I have numerous bottles of it in all my bathrooms as I much prefer it to a hand soap. I like fact that it comes in a bottle so there is really no mess as opposed to a loose soap which ends up leaving lots of residue on your sink. I also think its quite a hygienic way of washing your hands too as all you have to do is press the little nozzle at the top for the soap to come out and then its on your ahnds and you are ready to wash them. When you first buy the bottle the nozzle is in a locked position so you know it is brand new and then all you need to do to open it is twist it a few times and it will pop up and then you are ready to use it.
This handsoap is part of their naturals range which I like because they have extracts of 100% natural origin . I use a number of different Palmolive soaps depending on what I am feeling like at the time when I purchase them, the aquarium version is one of my favourites but I also like the creamy ones too. This version is described as a creamy soap free formula enriched with extracts of 100% natural origin of milk, honey and aloe vera. It protects skin from excessive dryness, leaving it feeling nourished and touchably soft day after day.
The liquid is quite thick and does have a cream like consistency to it. It has a slight light orangey, well honey colour to it really, and it looks nice in the bottle, I don't mind it resting on my bathroom shelf. It is a really nice liquid to wash your hands with and I find the smell absolutely amazing. It has quite a sweet smell to it, quite different than other hand washes and I find the smell will last quite a while on my hands too. My hands feel nice and clean after use and I like to think I am really nourishing my hands with the milk effect as well.
A 300ml costs in the £1.99 region but I often find these hand washes are on offer in places like Boots or Sainsburys where you can get two for one or money off so its well worth stocking up as with regular use these don't last very long in our house.
I have three of these handwashes on the go in my house at present, this is due to buying them on offer in Asda when they were on a 3 for £3 promotion recently.
The handwash is a soap free formula enriched with natural extracts of milk, honey, and aloe vera. It has a nourishing formula, which is designed to reduce dryness of the hands. It is available in a 300ml soap dispenser, and although the RRP is £1.99, it can often be found on offer in supermarkets and discount stores.
This product is the same as any other liquid handwash, in that you simply press the dispenser to release the product. I have never had any issues with the dispenser failing, and find that one firm press on the dispenser is usually adequate for cleaning my hands unless they are particularly dirty.
The handwash is advertised as being "milk and honey" fragranced, and at first I wasn't too sure about this as I'm not a big fan of honey fragrances as a general rule. However, I am also very tight with money, so in the grand scheme of things, I was willing to walk around tasting like a bee hive for the purpose of saving a few quid.
As it turns out, this handwash smells to me more like almonds than honey. I think the milk must reduce the impact of the honey, so although you get a slight whiff of honey, it's not overwhelming. In short, it smells good.
I am a fairly clean person, so do not tend to place great demands on my handwash unless I've been decorating or something, in which case I tend to just use washing up liquid for some reason. Anyway, for general cleaning after cooking, using the bathroom, eating juicy pineapples, this handwash is perfectly adequate and gets rid of smells and substances on your hands.
I was interested to see if this handwash would live up to its claims about being nourishing. Well ok, I wasn't *that* interested, I do have a life after all. But, my hands do get very dry from all the demands I place on them during the average day, and this handwash does feel quite moisturising on my skin. It's not quite as thick as I was expecting, but it feels silky smooth, and after washing my hands they never feel dry or stripped of moisture.
In summary, if you're looking to reduce your ever-increasing grocery bill, and see this handwash on offer, I would recommend picking it up.

Being a pretty dedicated Avon fan, I used to purchase Avon hand wash as it was an excellent price. However, I soon discovered Palmolive Hand wash Milk & Honey at my in-laws house. The smell was so amazing and my hands were so soft, I would purposely wash my hands when I was there because they smelled so good (sad I know). I decided enough was enough and decided to buy some for myself.
As I mentioned, the handwash smells amazing. Milk and Honey don't really inspire me and to be honest it doesn't smell much like honey. It smells quite sweet without being sugary as the edge has been taken off the smell of the honey with the "milky" smell. The handwash is a golden colour (see picture) and a wee bit pearlescent as it squidges out of the bottle. My hands feel really soft after using this product, they always feel really clean, smell really nice and feel really soft. What more can you need from a hand wash? Palmolive claim that this has aloe vera in (feels like it does) and will prevent hands from excessive dryness.
==Value for Money?==
At around £1.70 for 300ml, this isn't going to break the bank but I refuse to buy it at half price as it is on offer so regularly in Tesco and Sainsburys that it seems like a sin to pay full price. I usually pay around 85p and stock up when I see it on offer. The soap lasts around 6 weeks when 2 people use it daily. For the price of it, you can't complain. I do think that Palmolive have designed the bottles so that if you press down on the squirty bit, you get quite a lot of soap. I find you only need to press down half way, that way the soap lasts longer.
Overall, this is by far my favourite handwash, even the others in the Palmolive range don't inspire me to want to wash my hands as much as this does! Give it a go and see if you hands smell and feel as fabulous!
I prefer a liquid handwash to a bar of soap these days, despite always growing up with the latter. I find them to be more hygienic, cleaner to use and more pleasant overall. The Palmolive with milk and honey is my favourite at the moment because it smells lovely whilst being effective at the same time.
Palmolive is a very popular brand when it comes to all things getting-your-self-clean, so I trust them to make effective but kind to skin products. They have an ever expanding range and although there are various handwash brands to choose from, I gave this one a go more recently because it was on sale and I liked the sound of the ingredients.
This handwash stands out from the crowd because it's a 'soap free formula enriched with extracts of 100% natural origin of milk, honey and aloe vera'. Aside from its cleaning properties, it's also nourishing to skin and prevents dryness, aiming to leave hands 'nourished and touchably soft'. It comes in a cute, rounded clear plastic bottle with a white push-down nozzle at the top, and the Palmolive logo clearly recognisable on the front. The liquid itself is a yellow colour and on the front sticker is also an image of a golden liquid honey being poured, tempting me to buy it because it looked warm and luxurious (as far as its possible for a handwash to be luxurious of course!).
Using this is very easy with the push-down nozzle as its rounded so there's plenty of space to push down a finger and enough room underneath the nozzle to catch the handwash before it dribbles everywhere. It comes out as a reasonably thick consistency which I would say is just right; it's definitely not runny, but it's not too thick that you end up dolloping it into your hand. It lathers just enough too, providing a decent all-over hand washing from only a small blob so it lasts for longer.
The scent is noticable from the moment to squirt a bit out and I think it's lovely. You can tell its honey, though I couldn't discern the hint of aloe vera (as I knew you wouldn't smell the milk), but I think that's a good thing. After washing your hands, they're left with a pleasant scent that's not overpowering, but you know it's there. I actually really like this, which I don't always when it comes to soaps because you don't want a horrible, strong smell on your hands if you're going to eat, for instance. It's just right and I think it smells lovely; even the boyfriend commented on how nice it was!
As for being skin kind, this is dermatalogically tested. I can sometimes have slightly sensitive skin, or dry hands, but I've found this not to irritate my skin at all. In fact, it does seem to leave my hands a smidge softer, but it's not a replacement for hand moisturiser by any means. The handwash just prevents too much damage and dryness whilst cleaning, so I've been really pleased with it. It's kind to skin and gentle, cleaning well without drying your hands out.
Overall I would definitely recommend this, especially if you get easily tempted by the lovely smell of honey. It's easy to use, kind to skin, smells lovely without being overpowering and provides good value for money as not much is required per use.
Sells for around £1.73 (can often be bought on offer for around £1 or under, and it's also worth checking discounter stores such as Poundland).
- Why I bought -
I like to keep a bottle of hand wash in both our bathrooms and also in the kitchen so we get through quite a lot. I recently bought Palmolive Naturals Milk and Honey Hand Wash when it was on offer in Asda. I am not particularly fussy with hand wash and am happy to buy whatever brand is on offer.
- The Packaging -
The bottle is made of clear plastic with the Palmolive logo and a photo of what I presume is honey. There is a white pump to dispense the soap which works effectively and provides a decent amount in one squirt. It is a fairly unexciting packaging but if I wanted something fancier I'm sure I would have to spend more money. I did have a little trouble taking the seal off the pump but I got there in the end.
- The Soap -
The soap is pale yellow in colour. As the bottle is clear you can see the liquid inside and the colour of this is fairly neutral so would compliment a variety of different bathroom colour schemes. The liquid is quite thick, very soft and has an absolutely gorgeous smell. I mean I wanted to eat it. To me it smells of honey, vanilla and cream. The soap lathered up really well too. These factors all give the impression of a good quality product. The bottle states "very dry skin" which I presume means for very dry skin rather than gives you very dry skin! After using the soap regularly for a few weeks I have not noticed any problems with my skin so I would assume that the soap is moisturising and kind to skin.
- Price and Availability -
I bought this hand-soap when it was on offer at three bottles for £3 in Asda. The usual price is £1.28 for 300ml so this seemed like a good deal. I would be unlikely to pay more than £1. It is available in most supermarkets.
- Would I recommend? -
Overall I think that this is a good quality hand-soap that smells good enough to eat. The only disappointment is the packaging which I think could look better. But I do think this is a good value product when on offer and I would buy it again.
We always have a hand wash dispenser in our Kitchen as; as much as I love my Lush soaps they don't seem adequate for the kitchen. I want something that will kill the germs and not dry out my hands. It has to be small and compact as out Kitchen is the size of a cupboard.
We saw the Palmolive Hand Wash range in Tesco on offer for 2 for £2. They are normally priced at around £1.75 for 300 ml so it was well worth buying for the deal. We decided to go for the Palmolive Milk and Honey and the Aquarium. Even at the full price of £1.75 I still think this product is reasonable priced as the 300 ml bottle lasts ages! The Palmolive name is a brand associated with gentle, soft cleansing and moisturising so you expect good things from this brand!
The hand wash comes in a simple clear plastic bottle which is oval shaped. It has a white pump action applicator at the top. The main body of the bottle is clear so you can see the colour of the hand wash inside. The bottle has an image of Honey being poured on the front and wiring that simply states what it is.
The hand wash itself is a creamy gold colour and a medium gooey texture. It dispenses easily and 1-2 pumps will be enough. It lathers up immediately and really gives your hands a good wash. The hand wash is actually soap free, and is a formula enriched with natural honey and milk extracts. By being soap free is stops the hands drying out but still cleanses. The milk and honey extracts ensure that your hands really do feel soft and moisturised after use. The wash has a light honey fragrance that doesn't linger on the skin too long but smells rich and cleansing. You can't really pick up on the milk extract but then again, thats not a bad thing as milk isn't the best of smells is it!
I do get very dry hands, especially in the winter or after housework when you hands really take a battering with so many cleaning products, hanging our washing etc, and after using most hand washes I used to have to go and put on a thick moisturiser to stop them chapping and cracking, but after using the Palmolive Milk and honey wash I found they didn't need any hand cream for a good few hours.
The Palmolive Milk and Honey Hand wash is a good basic hand wash that will give you clean hands without drying them out
I live in a fairly large house with my family.- It has, 4 bathrooms,(2 of those bathrooms are en-suites with) 5 bedrooms (1 now an office), . Living in a house with many bathrooms and a fair few people inside means we can pay quite a bit of money on liquid hand wash so we always look out for soap offers! While in the supermarket the other day I spotted this for a very decent price for such a well known brand- and so into the trolley it went
Why did I buy it; I love both milk and honey for starters. I have also found that the brand Palmolive is a very good brand. This soap was also on offer at the time too.
*Packaging; The see through plastic packaging looks very attractive on the shelf. You can see the golden white colour of the soap, which was one of the reasons why it urged me to buy it. It comes with a pump action dispenser (Press on the white pump for soap) The container contains 300ml- which I felt made it good value for money as some rivals only offer 250ml of soap. The only fault I have with the packaging is that I found it quite hard to release the pump from it's seal.
Where can I buy this soap from?
You can buy this soap from all major supermarkets, such as Waitrose, Sainsbury's, Asda and Tesco.
What was the smell and the texture like?
After pressing down on the soap dispenser I was greeted by the mild smell of the honey. I have to say however it certainly did not smell of milk; rather it reminded me of cream. The texture of the soap was marvelous. It was very silky and smooth.
How did it affect my skin?
I can suffer from Eczema and some soaps (combined with a harsh winter) can set this of. However I am very pleased to inform you that this soap seemed to help protect my hands from that nasty rash. It completely softened my hands. My hands can also become quite clammy in the summer- and I found again this soap helped combat this. After use my hands were soft and smooth- and smelt very clean.
Directions for use; Wet hands. Press down on the soap dispenser and then rub to create lather. Then wash of with water. Dry hands. Adults may need to press down on the dispenser a couple of times to get the desired results- children should use approximately half as much.
Value For Money; I bought 300ml of soap for just £0.86 in Tesco the other day. Which is great value for money for what it did for me. The usual price in Tesco of £1.73 might be considered as steep however!
Verdict; One of my favourite soaps on the market! (For those who wish to know the list of ingredients is can be found below)

This is my favourite hand wash of all time! I love everything about it, from the smell to the way it leaves your hands to the price. Sometimes you will find it on offer at your local supermarket or pharmacy for £1 which is even better. The best bit for me is the smell, not only does it smell wonderful at the time of washing your hands but also after the smell stays on your hands. It helps out with dry skin too so if you are prone to dry skin and appreciate good smelling products then this is the product for you.
I find when using this product that I don't have to use a lot to get a good lather which means that it lasts longer and for the price it is definitely a great buy! I recommend this to anybody, and will continue to buy this product myself! Happy washing!
There are so many different brands of hand wash available to buy these days it is very hard to choose which one to buy. I usually buy one that is on special offer so that I save some money as it makes sense because at lot of the time recently they are on offer in most shops. This one is the latest that I bought on offer to try.
It comes in a transparent plastic bottle with a pump dispenser. It is a very well known brand and one that has been around for many years and so the design on the front of the bottle is quite a nice one. The liquid wash inside is a pale peach colour, it is very easy to pump from the bottle and I only have to use a couple of pumps onto my hand to wash my hands because that amount of pumps is adequate enough to wash them perfectly.
It lathers really well and it creates a lot of bubbles, it has a really nice soft and smooth texture and is very rich in consistency. While washing my hands I can feel it is nice and soft and it also feels very creamy. It is not a runny liquid and so it does not drip from the bottle and so it does not make a mess in the sink etc. I love the feel of the liquid on my hands and I love the feeling of this one in between my fingers. It is so soft it just glides along my skin perfectly.
This has a really nice fragrance to it and smells of a sweet smell with a hint of perfume, the smell I find is quite a strong one and is very apparent while washing my hands and I can definitely smell it on my hands a while after I have washed them, which indicates it has staying power. I find that this one is very easy to rinse from the hands in no time at all. It does not dry my skin because the honey content gives for a nice moisturiser for the skin. I cannot detect any milk smell at all with this one and all I can smell is the honey etc but like the smell of honey so it is not such a problem.
My hands feels nice and soft and smooth and I have had no irritations on my skin after using this wash. It has just left them perfectly clean and I have used a nail brush sometimes with a little of this wash on the brush and cleaned under my nails and it has been perfectly fine and left them nice and clean. We all get dirty nails at times and this one cleans them perfectly.
The amount of liquid in this bottle is 300ml and so quite a lot for the price that I paid for it being only a £1. Because only a small amount is need for this one to work very well, it means a little does go a very long way and so the bottle does last for a lot of weeks with regular usage. It means that it is very good quality indeed and excellent value for money. It is one that I would say is a family hand wash and is suitable for all the family. It is very affordable for a branded wash and because the bottle lasts for a long time it also means money is being saved in the long run and by not having to buy 2 cheaper ones that do not last so long. I do not mind the cheaper ones but if any are on offer, I much prefer to buy branded whenever possible.
This one also has a nice flat base and so it sits well on the side of a sink and does not tip over. I just think it looks attractive in the bottle design on the side of a sink, not that I am really fussy about the design of a bottle, I only really care if it washes well etc and this one certainly does clean the hands well.
Palmolive pride themselves in producing good products and this one is a credit to them and one that I would certainly recommend anyone to give it a go. It is one that I will buy again because it gives me all the results that I expect from a branded hand wash. It is well worth the price in my opinion.
I give this one 5 stars.
Thank you for reading my review and I hope it has been of some help.
I'm a bit of a fan of the Palmolive range of handwashes as I find that they come in many different varieties and all seem to be of a good price and come in many nice scents. This is one that I had not bought before so I thought I would give it a try. I bought this "Milk & Honey" handwash from my local Asda supermarket for only £1 a couple of months ago. According to their website it is still only £1!
The handwash comes in a transparent bottle that is 13cm x 9cm x 4cm in size. On the top there is a white pump that is easy to use to dispense a small amount of the handwash. The bottle has a label on the front that has the product logo and a picture of honey which makes it quite attractive. The rear contains all the necessary product information.
The actual handwash itself is beige/dark yellow in colour, which is what I would expect milk and honey mixed together to look like. The handwash is opaque and has a reasonably thick consistancy which means that when it is on your hand it doesn't run away. Once dispensed onto your hand, the handwash is very easy to work into a lather and it will spread over all of your hands with ease. This is good as only one dispense of the handwash is easily enough. I have found in the past that with cheaper washes you need more than one dispense to get a good wash.
Once lathered up, the handwash seems to do a good job at cleaning most stains and smells off your hands which is good as it allows it to be used anywhere in the home. The lather is very easy to fully wash off which is good as it means you only need to use a small amount of water, hence saving water and money! Once dried, I find that it leaves hands feeling smooth and soft with a very light fragrence, if any at all.
The handwash is designed to be used with very dry skin, which is one of the reasons why I bought it. I only occasionally suffer from dry skin on my hands so I thought that this should hopefully help prevent it.
I have used many other handwashes in the past, some by Palmolive and many by other brands and I find I always seem to come back to Palmolive as the quality is very good. I have found that this handwash does what it is meant to and does a very good job of it. It also lasts ages too. The bottle holds 300ml of handwash and this has lasted over 4 months in a house of 3 adults. This is remarkable value for money and I will be buying this again.
I am going to give this 5/5 as it does what it is meant to and I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
Thanks for reading.

I like to use a liquid hand wash, I find it a little quicker way to wash my hands and then the job is done in no time at all. I buy which ever hand wash take my fancy at the time and I do not buy a regular brand.
This one is house in a clear plastic bottle with a pump dispenser, it is a nice light peach colour and for a 300ml bottle I bought it for just £1 and a good price for a branded liquid. The consistency of this one is very thick, it has a smooth, soft texture to it and it does not drip from the bottle. Just a quick couple of pumps is needed onto the hands and I find this is enough to clean my hands. It lathers really well and creates bubbles because it is a good quality soap.
It has a nice smell of honey but it is not an over powering smell but is a nice fragrance. I cannot detect any milk smell with this one and I find it is more of the honey fragrance. It removes dirt very well from the hands with just the small amount used. I find that the 2 pumps is adequate enough to wash my hands well.
It does not dry my hands and it does leave them smelling nice and fresh after washing them. The smell is left on the hands for quite some time after washing. It shows that this one has a lasting smell on the hands. The thickness of the liquid feels nice and smooth on the hands while washing them, it is not a think liquid and so it is easier to wash them and work it through the fingers, especially good for my grandchildren who often have chocolate or sticky foods on their hands and it dissolves the chocolate etc and removes it with no problems at all. It has not irritated their softer skin at all and it leaves their hands feeling nice, smooth and very soft after their hands have dried.
The base is nice and flat and so it can easily sit on the side of the sink in the bathroom or kitchen or wherever you like to stand a soap of this kind. It does not tip over at all and is a very strong plastic bottle.
This one is excellent value for the price and well worth the money. A little goes a very long way, none is wasted because of the richness of the liquid and so that gets full marks from me.
I recommend this one for anyone looking for a nice hand wash because I do not think anyone would be disappointed with this hand soap.
I rate it 5 stars.
Although I regularly buy a bar of soap for use in our bathroom at the sink basin (mainly for my husband who prefers 'real soap'), I do like liquid soap personally for convenience. I am not brand loyal though as with most products and will actively search out what is on offer and buy that particular item, which is the case here as at my local Superdrug store all of the Palmolive liquid soaps were half price..
Although I bought a few different varieties from the Palmolive range, this review focuses entirely on the Milk & Honey soap.
The soap comes housed in a slightly curved shaped bottle which is upright standing. The bottle is made of a recyclable plastic and is entirely transparent so the contents are clearly visible, which in this case we can see the soap is a warm apt honey colour.
This is designed for people with dry skin and my hands can really suffer at times particularly in the colder weather so I know that when I use this it will be soft against my skin and not remotely harsh.
To access the soap there is a large and distinctive looking white nozzle which is placed directly on top of the bottle, and once activated (twisted so the nozzle 'pops up') the soap is good to go.
This comes in one size (to my knowledge) which is a reasonable 300 ml and is available from most Supermarkets, Chemists etc retailing at around the RRP of £1.99 , though as mentioned it is currently on a half price offer at Superdrug (Sept 11').
To access the soap one or two presses of the nozzle are adequate enough to dispense a sufficient amount for general hand washing I have found. On rubbing the soap into my hands I found the consistency to be very thick and creamy whilst the fragrance was a heavenly aroma of honey tinged with a hint of what smells to me like caramel.
The texture is like velvet and this I suppose is where the milk comes into play as it feels intensely moisturising whilst washing. I found that the soap lathered up adequately and gave enough bubbles appropriate for a liquid soap, and rinsed away easily enough when my hands were immersed into clean water.
I really like this particular fragrance as it just smells divine and isn't *too* heavy on the honey, which could be a little overpowering, but luckily has just the perfect balance.
*~*Would I recommend this soap then?*~*
Although I will often buy what is the cheapest product on offer at the time I do prefer Palmolive when it comes to hand wash products as I feel the the brand to be slightly more superior to others in this particular field.
In the past I have used the same fragranced product by this company in their shower gel range and I have found it to offer far more than just a shower cream as is the same here. What I mean exactly is that often when I use a liquid soap my hands can feel slightly dry after drying them but I know that isn't the case here as they feel hydrated to the equivalent of using a hand lotion. I find the honey scent to linger on my skin too which is really very pleasant and just smells thoroughly *clean*.
On the odd occasion I have run out of shower gel and this has been the nearest thing to hand, I have had optimum results so it is quite a universal product though it only gets used as a shower gel (or even a bath cream) on rare occasions but it's still good to know that it can be used all over.
I would highly recommend this for anyone really not just those with dry skin and even though it smells more feminine than unisex it's not as if it's just marketed at the female market so wouldn't be out of place if the male popularity wanted to buy it.
This is a really good liquid hand soap that lasts our household for on average two to three weeks depending on who uses it. As mentioned my husband prefers bars of soap, this still takes the brunt of my two young sons who like to be very liberal when hand washing!
For full price this is a good product but for half price it's even better.
I always keep a handwash on my sinks around my house instead of a bar of soap as to me I find they look tidier and cleaner, especially when you get to the end of a bar of soap and as I hate wasting things a handwash seems more appropriate.
I don't stick to one particular brand though and like to try new things, I tend to pick handwashes up which are on offer which is why, weeks ago, I picked up a Palmolive handwash from Boots as it was on offer for just £1.
The handwash I picked up was Palmolive Naturals Handwash, Milk and Honey version for Very Dry Skin.
The handwash comes in a clear plastic 300ml bottle with a white plastic pump on top. You can see the handwash inside which is a honey coloured soap, great colour seeing as it's Milk and Honey handwash.
The handwash is smooth and quite thick in consistency. The soap has a lovely, delicately sweet, honey scent, nothing too sickly or overpowering, just a mild honey smell. I can't smell milk, but for me Milk doesn't have much of a smell anyway but the handwash seems quite creamy, well feels this way anyway, especially when it lathers up within your hands, so I'm thinking this may be the 'milk' part of the handwash, creamy and nourishing for your skin.
Whilst using this to wash my hands my skin feels soft and smooth instantly, and they feel delightfully clean, fresh and nourished after using it too. I do suffer from dry and sensitive skin at times and this doesn't irritate my skin and make it worse, in fact I find it seems to help smooth my skin, keep it soft and feeling healthy too.
