      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Watch for it on offer

      I always have a bottle of handwash in my bathroom and generally even on my kitchen windowsill, I have a 5 year old who doesn't go very well with bars of soap and a husband who always seems to be filthy when he comes home so we do go through quite a bit of it.

      I buy handwashes when they are on offer as I think it is pointless paying about double when they're full price, why pay for one what you can get two for. I tend to go between Carex and Radox as my two favourites as personally I find these best and when they are on offer they are about equal in price to the supermarkets own brands. Generally this handwash is about £1.90 at full price and £1 when on offer which I feel is a decent price.

      The hand wash comes in a see through plastic bottle which has a white pump mechanism on the top of it. As the bottle is see through you can see the product inside which is a very pale green colour and looks almost creamy in consistency. To open the pump on the bottle you simply have to turn it to the open side which is marked on the top of the pump and then turn back the other way to close it, personally I just leave it open that way my daughter can manage to use it herself when she washes her hands.

      The hand wash is thick and creamy when you dispense it and one pump is enough generally to wash your hands although sometimes it takes a couple of pumps on my husband's greasy hands. The soap lathers up really well and smells fresh with in my opinion a hint of mint although it doesn't state that the product contains mint. The hand wash is easy to wash off your hands and my daughter can manage to do this for herself which is great as with some soaps we have tried she has still been covered in soap after rinsing many times.

      The soap leaves your hands feeling and smelling fresh, I have contact dermatitis and find that some soaps dry out my skin which only adds to my problem but the Radox brand I find is really great and seems to hydrate my skin. The smell of the soap lasts on my skin too which is nice and a bottle lasts about 4-6 weeks in our bathroom which I feel is a decent amount of time. I cannot find fault with this handwash and would certainly recommend it.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A pleasant hand wash

      I purchased this hand wash after I had a bad breakout of eczema on my hands and wanted something that wouldn't aggrivate it. I choose this as it has a 'naturally caring for hands' logo on it and also because it contains aloe vera which I have heard has healing properties.

      The hand wash claims to have natural antibacterial properties also added moisturizers, it cost me £1 from my local bargain shop for 300ml with a 12m life, I thought that was a resonable price for a radox product.

      The bottle itself is milky colour and the hand wash is a light green colour it has a pump action easy to use just press and the soap is dispensed. I prefer pump action soaps and think they are more hygenic than using a soap bar to wash your hands. I just think where has everyone elses hands been before they touched the soap yuck pump action much better lol. The liquid soap smells of aloe vera and cucmber its ok not the best smelling it smells of a 'clean' item rather than a perfume fragrance.

      The results ......
      My hands feel clean after washing and smell of the product, it does not flare up my exczema though I do think it dries my hands slightly but I am pretty sure thats due to my sensitive skin so I don't think this would happen to others, no one else has commented on it anyway.

      Recommend for clean smelling hands.

      A great handwash to clean and moisturise

      I love trying out lots of different types of soaps and shower gels and Radox is one of my favourite brands. There was an offer of 4 for £3 on Radox handwashes in Asda and this one looked and sounded quite good so thought I'd give it a try.

      It's a natural antibacterial handwash with aloe vera and cucumber. The aloe vera is naturally refreshing and the cucumber gives a cool, light and soothing fragrance whilst softening and moisturising the skin.

      I have to admit that the soap doesn't look the most appealing being a very pale green colour with a thick liquid texture. So I was quite surprised to find that I actually really liked this handwash. It has a lovely refreshingly clean smell - even though cucumber doesn't really smell of anything, the smell of this does remind me of cucumber whenever I use it. It feels lovely and creamy in your hands and it lathers up really well so you know you're getting a thorough clean. It's also really soft and my hands do feel really smooth after using it. The scent of the soap also lasts on my hands for a while after which makes you feel even nicer.

      I now buy this soap regularly so it must be good as I'm quite fussy with the soap I use - I have to one that is an antibacterial as well as being a moisturiser and this Clean & Soften handwash from Radox is just perfect for that.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Clean but uncomfortable.

        This product, from the Radox Clean and Soften range, is a good soap, but not the best I have ever used. A natural antibacterial handwash, this particular soap is made with aloe vera and cucumber. It's not often you would associate cucumber with soap in my opinion, but I was willing to give it a go.

        The look of the product is very natural, with green lettering and some aloe vera leaves on the front. The bottle is curved and rectangular, with a circular top and is also transparent apart from the white pump on the top. The colour of the soap is a very light, very creamy green, which I didn't find particularly inviting. The bottle size is 300ml.

        The fragrance of the soap is probably the best part of it. It isn't too powerful, but it is striking how clean and fresh it smells, without being too perfume like so my partner can use it without feeling ashamed too! It lingers on the hands after drying, but only if you breathe it in deeply. It has a very pleasant aroma.

        Where I think the product is a let down though is in how it feels. It isn't slimy, but it doesn't always feel like it clings to your skin very well. It has a slightly slippery, greasy texture to it, in spite of being quite thick and very good at moisturising. It froths up very well, and I always feel very clean after using it but I do find the texture quite off putting.

        I have always found this in supermarkets and usually in some sort of offer as well, although I think it normally retails for around £1.60. I think this is a quite average price but there are better soaps on the market in my opinion.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        No more housework hands for me!

        "Wash your hands before preparing food" - the first rule of any school cookery lesson. Not only do we washing our hands before preparing food, but after preparing food too. Whilst some can use a squirt of washing up liquid and some hot water, which does the job adequately, of course, I prefer to wash with "proper" soap.....

        That's ok if your downstairs loo is near to the kitchen, but if it isn't, or if you don't have a downstairs loo, that means that you need to keep soap in your kitchen for the numerous handwashing occasions that crop up. A bar of soap in a kitchen is, I feel, impractical - the sheer amount of water flying around a kitchen would mean that it goes all gooey, and I hate soap scum....so hurrah for the person who invented the pump dispenser!

        My kitchen soap/handwash of choice is the Radox Clean and Soften, with Aloe Vera.

        It is a very pale green in colour - a bit like the inside of cucumber (I'm trying to relate it to kitchen-y stuff, you see!), and smells incredibly fresh. Not floral, not chemical, not "fragrance free for sensitive skin" but beautifully fresh........a really nice fragrance after you have been chopping onions or handling raw meat!

        It lathers up well, but remains creamy - we are in a very hard water area, so often we buy handwashes that have just smeared themselves around our hands rather than lather up - this one, however, gives the feeling of really cleaning my hands properly.

        It rinses off well - in the past, I have noticed that some soaps and handwashes, despite rinsing with hot water, leave the feeling that there is still some soap on my hands - this is not ideal if you are then going to handle food.....so I am pleased to report that my hands feel clean and dry.

        It doesn't dry out the skin - you can imagine that handwashing can occur many times in the space of a couple of hours in a kitchen, which could result in drying of the skin, but I have not experienced this with the Clean and Soften....all good! My daughter has very sensitive skin, and is prone to eczema, and she has not had a problem with this product either.

        I don't use rubber gloves when cleaning or washing up, so when I have finished wiping my work surfaces with spray cleaner, I have that "cillit bang smell" to my hands - nice.....but a quick wash with the aloe vera handwash soon transforms my hands from Housework Hands to Yummy Mummy hands.

        Generally priced around the £1.90 mark, this is worth buying at full price, but is often on BOGOF or multibuy offer at Boots or larger supermarkets.

          Another great Radox product that smells fresh and leaves your hands soft.

          I love these Radox handwash ranges but this is my favourite! I think the bottles look great in the kitchen, and think the cucumber smell is clean and fresh, although quite subtle. I keep it on the windosil in my kitchen next to lots of plants and it fits in beautifully!

          The handwash is a lovely pale green colour and lathers up nicely. It always feels good quality as it is thick and creamy. I also think that the 300ml bottle lasts a good length of time as the pump dispenses the right amount with one squirt! The main advantage of this handwash is that it leaves your hands very soft and fresh once they are dry.

          The price of this handwash is usually £1.99 but I have often found it included in 4 for £3 deals with the other radox handwashes. I always stock up on these when I get the chance. Another excellent and reliable product from Radox and excellent value for money!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A handwash by Radox that leaves hands clean and soft

          I always use liquid handwash in the bathroom and in the kitchen as I feel it is more hygienic than using a bar of soap. I love Radox handwashes as I always feel they are good quality and smell great so was keen to try the Clean and Soften handwash as I hadn't tried it before. The handwash is Aloe Vera and Cucumber so I was looking forward to a handwash that was going to be fresh and clean and I wasn't disappointed.

          The handwash comes in a 300ml pump dispenser bottle, the bottle is clear and you can see the pale green handwash through the bottle. The handwash dispenses easily using the pump and is fairly thick and creamy. Applying it to my wet hands it foams up really quickly and feels nice and creamy. The delicate scent of cucumbers is quite evident, Aloe Vera really doesn't have much of a smell so you can't really notice that.

          After rinsing my hands they do feel much softer so that might be the effects of the aloe vera or there may be moisturising properties in the handwash. Whatever it is it certainly makes a difference to the feel of my skin after using it. The light and fresh scent rests on my hands for quite some time after I have washed them so they feel really clean and fresh.

          I do find my hands get very dry as I work in a hospital and am continually having to wash my hands to comply with infection control measures. Its lovely to use a handwash that not only cleans but moisturises at the same time so it gives a little bit of relief to my dry hands.

          I really love this handwash its another top quality product from Radox. However despite being from Radox its not too expensive and costs around £1 for a bottle although it is currently on special offer at Tesco where you can buy 4 for £3 which really is excellent value for money. I am definitely going to stock up whilst it is cheap and recommend you give it a try.

            Disadvantages

            Pleasant fragrant handwash

            Wash your hands with soap and warm water is the advice we hear on television and radio several times a day at the moment to help prevent catching Swine flu, but everyone should be taking this advice all the time and it has been proved that hands should be washed regularly especially after using the toilet, blowing your nose and before preparing food.
            I buy many types of liquid handwash usually what ever is the best offer when I'm shopping and recently bought some Radox handwash. I had already used the Aloe Vera and cucumber shower cream so hoped that handwash would be as good.

            There is 300mls in the bottle, which is clear plastic with a green tinge and has a white push dispenser. The handwash is a lovely pale green colour and is quite creamy. The smell is fresh, quite like cucumber, although I don't know what Aloe Vera smells like so can't say if that fragrance is there. The container can be recycled providing the pump is removed first.

            On the back it gives details about the "Clean and soften handwash", it says if your hands are dry a few drops of this handwash can help get them back to their best. Aloe Vera is known to be good for skin and cucumber is supposed to help keep skin soft. The front of the bottle has a picture of the aloe plant and the name Radox which is well known as it has been around for many years in many guises.

            The blend of natural herbs and minerals helps pamper your hands and keep them soft and well cared for.

            I have used this for a few weeks and admit recently I haven't been using as much hand cream as previously because my hands haven't felt as dry. I only pump a little onto my hands and with some warm water it soon makes a creamy lather. The fragrance is pleasant but not too strong and once rinsed off, and after drying my hands the fragrance lingers and my hands do feel soft and smooth.

            I will happily buy this product again, as it does what it says, it cleans and softens and smells good too. Well done Radox another great product, and available at £1 a bottle or on offer at Tesco where you can buy 4 for £3.00.
            It's good to know that even if I wash my hands more frequently my skin will remain soft and hydrated, and I'll be doing my bit to keep free of germs.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              It always gets used

              This is the handwash currently in our bathroom. We bought it because it was the cheapest one in Morrisons apart from the own brand which is more greasy.

              This handwash has a pump which is great as you dont need to faff around lifting up the bottle its very easy to get the soap out.

              I prefer this to bars of soap because it doesnt really feel soapy, its not slimey and it lathers more. It also moisturises your hands and makes them feel softer afterwards. Often when you are washing your hands a lot they can feel dry.

              We also have it at work because when we do the washing up and cleaning of the kitchen the chemicals are very strong. Even if you wear rubber gloves its still nice to make your hands feel soft again afterwards, and it also stops your nails from splitting if you get the strong washing up liquid on them.

              It was around 98p in Morrisons a few weeks ago, I dont know if that was a special offer but you could always try Wilkinsons as they always have everything really cheap.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                a really nice, good smelling handwash

                We go through a heck of a lot of handwash in our household as we have a bottle in the kitchen, utility room, downstairs loo & bathrooms so I'm always on the lookout for good value products.

                As those of you who've been kind enough to read any of my reviews will know, I've been trying to keep my shopping bills down & I have had varying success. Although I've been quite satisfied with some cheaper handwashes I've also been disappointed as some are very watery, don't clean the hands as well as I'd like or are very drying to the skin.

                I spotted Radox Clean & Soften in one of our local poundshops (£1.84 on Amazon) & decided to buy some for the kitchen as it's always me who does the washing-up & other jobs in this area. I was really pleased & will be buying more as it's a lovely product.

                The bottle is as shown in the photo & it stands at just over 6" so is compact to use but is 300ml so should last quite a long time because it's quite rich so you only need a little. It tells you on the reverse of the bottle that it can be re-cycled which is always good.

                The pump action top means there's no waste as you can use as much or as little as you want.

                It's thinner than a hand cream but not as watery as some cheaper washes so it's not 'gloopy' & doesn't clog up the hole nor drop down the side of the plastic bottle.

                The wash itself smells lovely & fresh - mainly of cucumber - at first I thought it may be a bit too strong, but the fragrance settles down & you can still smell it on the hands quite a while after rinsing.


                'What's gone into it?' it asks on the label, 'an aloe vera leaf or two, a few slices of cucumber, some natural mineral, a perfect pH balanc, a thumbs-up from the skin experts,100 years of Radox know-how'.

                A full list of ingredients is provided for those who want to know more about what's going on/ into their skin - a bit small to read but it's all there!

                my opinion
                ~
                - easy to use.
                - leaves the hands feeling clean & moisturised.
                - economical as you only need a little.
                - lovely fragrance.
                - nice consistency & attractive bottle.
                - definitely worth a try?

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  Great Price, Fantastic Smell, Nice soft hands

                  This is my first purchase of Radox Clean and Soften handwash. It contains aloe vera and cucumber.

                  I find that it is very good for your hands and does soften them whilst cleaning them. You don't need yo use much, one squirt is enough and really does cleanse your hands.

                  The smell - I like the smell of this handwash, it smells fresh and does have a nice lingering smell of cucumber.

                  The bottle - It it small, compact, easy to fit in at the side of your sink without getting in the way. It is a clear bottle with a pump dispenser so you can easy get every last drop from it. I wouldn't say it's very eye catching but once you have tried it once you will always remember it from how good a handwash it is.

                  The liquid is a light green colour. The writing is also reen in colour but in a darker shade so it's easy to read. I bought the bottle which is 300ml for £1.29 and I would definately say it's worth the money.

                  Overall I would say that it's good as it doens't dry out your hands like several other hand wash products.

                    Advantages

                    Disadvantages

                    A great handwash for anyone wanting soft hands

                    Description

                    This is a caring hand wash by Radox, designed to pamper your hands. It uses a blend of natural herbs and minerals, aloe vera and cucumber, to help keep your hands soft and moisturised.


                    Pros

                    - The packaging is very practical with a press top dispenser which is easy to use
                    - The dispenser gives you just the right amount to wash your hands with
                    - It smells nice, very fresh and clean, mainly of cucumber
                    - It's quite cheap at around £1.50 for a 300ml bottle, so you get a lot for your money and it lasts a long time. It's also on offer quite often.
                    - It cleans really well and leaves hands feeling really fresh and clean
                    - It also leaves the skin of my hands feeling very soft and they don't get dry at all

                    Cons

                    - The scent is quite unnatural like perfume and it can catch in the your throat, so is not always pleasant
                    - The texture is quite runny so it does occasionally drip from the dispenser of it's own accord
                    - It's not always on offer!


                    Summary

                    This is a fantastic hand wash for anyone with dry skin on their hands, or anyone who wants to prevent their skin from becoming dry from over-washing, without having to spend a lot of money.

                      Advantages

                      Disadvantages

                      If you're looking for a handwash, you can't go wrong with this one

                      We go through a fair amount of handwash in our house. We've a bottle in the kitchen, one in the downstairs toiler, one in the bathroom and one in the ensuite. Add to that the fact that I'm verging on OCD with the amount of times I wash my hands in a day and you can see why.

                      I tend to just buy whatever is on offer in Tesco, be it reduced in price or BOGOF. Then it all gets shoved in the cupboard until needed. Last year, Radox handwashes happened to be on special offer, for buy one get one free. I got a bottle of Clean and Soften and one of the others in the range.

                      Radox is a name I normally associate with relaxing bath soak, but they make a whole range of cleansing and bathing products.

                      The handwash comes in a clear plastic bottle with a white plastic dispenser that you simply twist round to open.

                      Clean and Soften Handwash is made with natural aloe vera and cucumber.
                      Aloe vera used in cosmetic products comes from the sap of the aloe vera plant, and is reputedly very good for the skin, although it's unknown if the quantity and quality used in these products would have any beneficial effect.
                      Cucumber contains ascorbic acid and caffeic acid, both of which are known to soothe skin.
                      It's PH balanced and doesn't leave your hands feeling sticky.

                      Many handwashes either smell nice in the bottle and are scentless once you've washed your hands, or leave an articifical smell on your hands. This one is different. It leaves a wonderful, fresh smell on your hands that lasts for quite a while. Even the midwife commented on how nice it was when she visited last year after the birth of my daughter.

                      When you wash your hands so much it can leave them quite dry, but I haven't found that to be a problem while using this handwash, as it leaves them lovely and moisturised.

                      You can buy Radox Clean & Soften Handwash 300ml at Tesco for £1.64. Watch out for BOGOF offers.
                      You can buy a 500ml refill, in a resealable pouch, for £1.97.
