I had to use this once when I was over a relative's house. I'm so glad that's never happened again.
Granted, I am not the biggest fan of honey in the world. Honey makes me feel sick. The smell of honey makes me feel sick. Combining it with the stench of milk curdling was probably never going to help.
So, I used this, with some trepidation, washed my hands, and then went to sit in the living room. After a minute or two I actually started gagging at the overpowering smell on my hands. I had to rush back up to the bathroom and rinse my hands repeatedly under plain water, gagging throughout, before it had faded enough to allow me to sit down again. The smell *lurked* on my hands for hours - I have no idea how many times I washed my hands that day. Luckily, after that first reaction to the overpowering odour, it *did* fade, if only so much as to let me go about my business without being sick.
So, unfortunately, I have to give a big thumbs down to this soap. Maybe other people, who don't hate the smell of honey to begin with, would be able to use this without being completely nauseated. But I'm not one of them. The stench is just too overpowering and horrible for me to be able to say anything else.
Granted, the soap *was* quite soft on my hands, but I had to dowse them with water afterwards, which kind of dried them out again. Don't buy this if you don't like honey. Or milk. Or strong smells.

I bought this Palmolive milk and honey 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 nice sweet smell which isn't too strong 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. You can feel the thickness of the handwash as you are rubbing it around your hands and you get a lot of lather quickly.
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 milk and honey hand wash and would definitely buy it again and I do recommend it as a good quality handwash which cleans and leaves my hands feeling clean and moisturised.
Product: Palmolive Naturals Liquid Handwash Milk & Honey
Price: £1.89 ( I bought this on special offer for 99p)
I always have a handwash in both my bathroom and in my kitchen. I’m not loyal to any particular brand as such so I tend to buy whatever is on offer when I do my weekly shop at the supermarket.
I do like the Palmolive brand of handwashes so when i saw that the Palmolive Naturals Liquid handwash in the Milk and Honey scent was on offer at just 99p in my local Tesco supermarket, I decided to give this a try.
The handwash is a comes packaged in a clear transparent 300ml bottle with a white nozzle on top of the bottle. The Palmolive logo and description is stuck on a sticker on the front of the bottle whilst all over relevant product information is at the back of the bottle. You can see in the bottle that the handwash is a lovely golden yellow colour. The gel is with honey which is 100% natural, the product has also been dermatologically tested.
To use you simply press down on the nozzle which dispenses just the right amount of product. The wash is of a thick but creamy consistency which as a lovely honey scent. Once the gel is in my hands I simply add water and rub together to wash my hands. This lathers really well and gives my hands a super squeaky clean feel.
After using the handwash my hands feel super soft, well moisturised and smell delicious.
I would definitely buy this product again, a thumbs up from me.

As a broke college student I am always on a tight budget. And there comes Palmolive with their shower milks and handwashes to save the day. I am very pleased with this one and here I am sharing my opinion with you.
This one is a classic for me, as I've been using it in my house, and my boyfriend's house, so I have always thought that its quality got people to buy it. Then I realized that it's also very cheap, so it's a good value for your money.
This handwash comes in a transparent bottle with a white pump that dispenses the product. You can easily see the cream/honey colored liquid wash inside. The pump is easy to use, and does not require much pressure, also you get the right amount of liquid each time so no waste of product. I'd say the packaging is okay looking, not too fancy.
Having used their shower gels, I expected this wash to have the same creamy texture and foam, and was not disappointed. The liquid feels very soft on the skin as it lathers into dense foam. It's able to clean off any food stains, and weird smells, like when I sometimes touch fish or something. I always use this to wash my hands after using the toilet, or eating something greasy, and it has never made my hands feel dry, which happens with many other hand liquids. Instead my skin feels supple, and I have no need to use a lotion afterwards.
In conclusion, this is a great option to consider. It's not a fancy handwash but it does the job perfectly.
Right now, Home Bargains are selling Palmolive Liquid Milk and Honey hand wash at the brilliant price of only 99p for a 300ml sized bottle. These are old bottles, I think, as they look fairly dirty and dusty but the contents are fine and I don’t think it ‘goes off’. I have stocked up with quite a few bottles as I used to buy this hand wash at Tesco when it was double the price and then it just disappeared off the shelves for a while. I am guessing this is old stock.
This liquid hand soap come sin a pump dispenser and the pump gives out just the right amount of soap. It lathers up really well when the hands are wet and it is rich and creamy and has a lovely mild and delicate fragrance which sits on the skin for ages afterwards and really leaves the skin feeling soft and supple.
The bottle itself is also really rather pretty to look at and I am happy enough to have it on my bathroom shelf and I don’t feel it necessary to have to pour it into one of my ceramic soap dispensers, as I have done with some of the cheaper looking liquid soap dispensers.
I love the fact that it rinses off my skin easily afterwards and though it leaves a gorgeous smell behind, it does not leave any sticky or tacky residue. It feels like a really good quality liquid soap. I really do recommend it highly
I'm not sure why I bought this handwash since I'm perfectly happy with the Palmolive Aquarium one which I've already reviewed. Perhaps I just wanted a bit of a change, as I can't imagine it being any cheaper than the others.I think I probably paid around £1 for the 300ml bottle.
This is in a transparent bottle with a white nozzle on top The table is a yellowy colour. It states that it is nourishing handwash with extracts of 100% natural origin. On the back there is further information such as a list of ingredients, which I won't list here.
To use simply push down the nozzle, get some on your hands with with warm water lather up and rinse. This is a creamy coloured handwash, and is lovely and thick. I wouldn't say I can spell almonds very well (maybe a hint), but it's more creamy and quite pleasant. It lathers really well and leaves my hands feeling really smooth and soft (and I suppose well nourished). However, I don't get that lovely fresh feeling that I do with more aqua based fragranced handwashes.
The smell does linger a little bit afterwards, but not unpleasantly so. I think this is quite a feminine handwash really, so I would prefer a different one which is more suitable to be used by everyone in the family.
It's a good enough handwash, but just not the smell of my choice, so I doubt I'll be buying it again (although unsure why I got it this time!)
3 out of 5 stars from me!
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.
