“ Brand: Superdrug / Type: Hand Wash / Subcategory: Butter / Suitable for: Hand / What it does: Enricheses „
As I am a fan of anything coconut, I thought I would give Superdrug's own brand of Coconut & Shea Butter Hand Wash a go, despite having mixed results with their bubble bath.
It cost me £1.49 for a 140ml bottle of Superdrug Coconut & Shea Butter Hand Wash from the store. I thought it was a reasonable price to pay, although I wouldn't want to pay much more.
The hand wash comes in a bottle which is very similar (just smaller) to Superdrug's own brand of bubble baths and has a pump-action top on it. It's a clear bottle with a black label wrapped around it, showing Superdrug's star logo and information about the product.
Pumping the hand wash into my hands, I found it thicker than I thought it would be. Superdrug's own brand of bubble bath and shampoo tend to be, in my experience, quite runny, but this, on the other hand (no pun intended!) is actually quite thick. I only needed a small amount. Rubbing it into my wet hands, I found it worked into quite a lather and I had no problem covering both my hands in the lather. This impressed me! I found the hand wash didn't smell quite as coconutty as I thought it would, but you could definitely smell it along with the shea butter. It all rinsed off easily enough and left my hands with a slight smell of the product (which is what I tend to expect with a hand wash).
The label on the hand wash states that it will "leave your hands gently cleansed and feeling luxuriously soft"... My hands certainly felt clean, I wouldn't say they felt "luxuriously soft", but they certainly felt soft-ish.
As I've found with other Superdrug products, this hand wash is suitable for vegetarians and vegans, and Superdrug is against animal testing.
Would I buy this again? Yes, why not? It ticked all the boxes when it comes to a hand wash.
