I usually stick to the same few brands of handwash, depending what is on offer at the time. I am a regular shopper at Sainsbury's and when I saw this with the bargain price of 83p I decided to give it a go. As a family we use a lot of hand wash so I like to keep stocked up.
The product comes in a clear plastic square container with a white plastic pump dispenser lid. On the front in blue lettering it tells you that it is an 'antibacterial moisture rich hand wash' by Sainsbury's. Underneath is a blue symbol showing a pair of hands and a water drop says that it kills bacteria and fights germs. Along the bottom of the container it tells you that it is paraben free, (Parabens are a class of chemicals widely used as preservatives by cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries.) dermatologically tested and that it combats odours. On the back it gives the usage directions, the botte size (250ml), shelf life (24mnths) recycling instructions and that it is BUAV approved. (cruelty free cosmetics)
The product itself is a white liquid with a fairly thick consistency. It has a light fragrance that I would describe as a clean and soapy scent. Upon first use twist the pump clockwise then simply push down on the top of the dispensing pump and release the desired amount of liquid onto the hands, rub hands together to form a lather and rinse. This product gives a nice lather and because it is formulated with moisturising milk protein it leaves my hands feeling lovely and soft as well as clean.
- 100% soap free
- Dermatologically tested
- Paraben free

- Kills bacteria and fights germs
- BUAV approved (against animal testing)

Price and availability.

This is a great hand wash for a good price. It cleans hands and leaves them feeling soft. 5 big stars.
We sometimes do our shopping with Sainsburys and a few weeks ago I did a big shop online. We needed some handwash at the time both for the kitchen and bathroom as both were running low. Normally I almost always buy carex for the kitchen and an own brand for the bathroom this is because firstly it tends to come in larger bottles and therefore is cost effective and secondly we have a soap dispenser in the bathroom so the design of the bottle really doesn't matter.
I paid around £1 for 500ml of this, possibly a little more but it was definitely less than about £1.40. This was for a large 500ml bottle but there are also smaller 250ml bottles which can usually be found on some sort of 2 for... offer. My bottle is a tall rounded shape. It is a frosted clear and the plastic feels very smooth. The writing gives us a simple description of the soap and the bottle actually looks quite nice. Personally I don't think it rivals the higher brands but it is certainly one that I wouldn't mind leaving next to my sinks.
The bottle comes with a pump that needs a simple twist to unlock it. It does dispense the soap well. The push needed is firm but not at all hard. I put this in our dispenser and I was surprised to see how thick it was compared to similar offerings from other supermarkets. The soap is pure brilliant white in colour and has a good consistency. It is quite thick but flows with ease. The soap has a really nice fresh and clean scent and reminds me a little of baby powder.
Using the soap is really easy. You only need a small amount to produce a good lather and I find that it lathers up with ease. It cleans the hands well. If using this after getting food on them it removes all traces with ease. Of course the majority of times you use soap on what look to the naked eye like clean hands. When using this I feel confident that my hands are spotless and there is no scrubbing required. It also feels like my skin is being soothed and nourished and I am pleased with how well it seems to moisturise my skin. I do suffer with dry skin, especially on my hands but my hands feel soft and supple.
I am really impressed with this product and will certainly buy it again. It nourishes and cares for my skin whilst providing the reassuring knowledge of antibacterial care. It is a very good soap and I would definitely recommend it.
When we bought our first property a couple of years ago, it was important to me to have nice quality accessories around my home to make it seem more homely and to give it an immediate facelift after its previous owners. One such accessory was a large cylindrical hand wash bottle made out of glass with a chrome pump which now lives in our bathroom. Now, whilst this bottle looks great sitting by our sink it is not much good on its own and so we have been through various hand washes in the process of filling it up periodically.
Whilst I, at first, stuck to branded handwash I did find that the usual 250ml bottles of handwash produced by such brands as Carex would only fill my bottle up to two thirds full. Therefore I would often buy two bottles to overcome this problem. On my recent weekly shop to Sainsburys however, I spotted that they sold larger 500ml bottles of their own branded handwash which would overcome this issue at a fraction of the price and so bought a bottle to see how it would fare against my usual buy.
The Sainsburys Antibacterial Handwash comes simply and cleanly packaged in a translucent plastic bottle which has a white pump at the top. The bottle is illustrated with a light blue label which keeps to the fresh and clean feel of the product and the text on it states that the handwash is both antibacterial and moisture rich to the skin.
The liquid inside the bottle is a creamy white in colour and has a medium consistency which is thicker than some of the clearer hand washes. It smells lovely, a clean cotton smell which lingers on your hands to leave them feeling clean in between washes. This product is said to combat odours, be dermatologically tested and be cruelty free.
==Price and Availability==
As this product is manufactured by Sainsburys it is also sold in... you guessed it... Sainsburys. This handwash comes in two bottle sizes those being a 250ml bottle which can be bought for 83p and a 500ml bottle which costs £1.29. It is worth mentioning that Sainsburys are currently doing a 2 for £1.20 offer on their 250ml bottles which makes this handwash a bargain as oppose to more expensive brands.
==Application and Use==
To open a bottle of this handwash you should hold down the collar of the pump before twisting the pump clockwise. Once is has clicked you can then press down the pump to dispense the handwash. I must admit that I sometimes find that this is easier said than done and therefore I am quite happy just screwing the top of my bottle off to pour the contents into my hand wash bottle. Once inside, nobody would ever know who is was manufactured by as it looks like any other white handwash.
I usually find that a small blob of this handwash is easily enough to wash my hands and I simply wet them in water to lather up and then rinse thoroughly to get rid of the product. The handwash lathers easily and creates a lovely rich lather which seems to sink into the skin.
Well it is said that this handwash is antibacterial, which although I am confident of I cannot prove (unless I had a large microscope). However the moisture rich qualities of this handwash are very noticeable and leave my skin feeling clean without that 'tight' feeling that some handwash or soap can leave. My skin also smells fresh for quite a long time between washes. The rich quality of this handwash means that a little goes a long way and therefore my bottle is likely to last a long time before it needs replacing.
Overall this is a good quality product which does exactly the same job as a more expensive handwash, it is therefore well recommended from me.
This product scores 5 stars out of 5 for price, results and quality.

I am constantly having to wash my hands during the day when I am at home with my three little monkeys. I'm either cleaning up after a messy mealtime or having to deal with nappy changes so anti-bacterial handwash has become pretty a pretty important item in my daily routine. I always buy the anti-bacterial varieties in attempt to try and bannish all the nasties and as I use so much of the stuff, I try and get it for the cheapest price going.
I buy the more luxury soaps when they are on special offer but for the majority of the time I tend to go for the supermarket own branded product. My most recent purchase of anti-bacterial handwash was this Sainsbury's Antibacterial Soften handwash costing a very reasonable 70p for a 250ml bottle. The soap comes in a slim bottle and has a screw top pump dispenser which you puch down to release some of the handwash.
I picked this particular option as most anti-bacterial products really dry out my hands. It's bad enough through just having to get the wet over and over but the addition of the soap really seems to have a negative effect on my skin. The product sounded great, giving all the benefits of killing the bugs yet also leaving the skin soft.
I began using the soap immediately and really liked the way it felt when used with water. It had a pleasant aroma and I felt as though my hands were being thoroughly cleaned. After drying my hands did feel quite soft and I didn't experience the tightening sensation I had with other products. I continued to use the soap several times a day and although my hands did still suffer form washing so much, they did feel less dry and rough.
I think that this is a great product, a quality soap that gives you the peace of mind knowinbg your hands are clean but without leaving them too dried out. I will definately buy this handwash again and would recommend.
Sainsburys antibacterial hand wash
Recently on offer in sainsburys, I stocked up on the hand wash because I tend to find that there seems to be a lot more hand washing going on in the summer months
The hand wash promises to be:
* Dermatologically tested
* Combat odours
* Has added moisturisers to keep hands soft
* Antibacterial agents
PRODUCT AND PACKAGING...
The product comes in a 250ml plastic bottle with a pump dispenser. The pump dispenser clearly states on the top which way to turn to open and close. The hand wash looks white when viewed through the bottle and when dispensed remains white. It has a nice perfumed smell and although I am useless with smells I think this smells a bit like vanilla although this could be just because it's white!!
The hand wash is nice and creamy and when I dispense the product onto my hands and then add water, it works easily into a lather and rinses off easily leaving hands feeling clean and fresh.
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY
Available instore and online at www.sainsburys.com, this costs 70p for 250ml, and is available in original or like this one, moisture rich.
The hand wash is very reasonably priced, smells good and does as it promises. I can't agree or disagree with the anti bacterial claims but take it as a given. The pump dispenser works right to the end although when first opened, it does take a few presses to get the thing working. Once working though I find that a couple of squirts onto the hands are enough for a hand wash. I do believe the claims of added moisturising agents because it is not harsh at all and my hands feel soft after use and they don't dry out as can happen with some hand washes.
Gentle enough for sensitive and young skin, I would recommend this hand wash
