Tesco Honeysuckle & Silk Handwash
Advantages: Smells and feels fine, very good value for money
Disadvantages: No major ones
My constant quest to save money on basic household items continued with my recent purchase of Tesco Honeysuckle and Silk Handwash. It cost me just 48 pence for 500 ml of handwash, which is very cheap when you consider that many of the more expensive brands such as Carex, Palmolive, Imperial Leather or Simple will charge you between £1 and £3 for 250 to 350 ml.
The handwash scores points immediately because it looks nice. It doesn't look posh, but it doesn't look cheap either and certainly doesn't shout out that it's a value product. I'd be perfectly happy to have it on display in my bathroom. The bottle is clear so you can see how much handwash you have left, and it is a nice curved design. On the top is a clear plastic pump, and on the front is the name of the handwash in orange along with a nice delicately drawn picture of a honeysuckle flower.
The information on the back of the handwash bottle says that it has been 'specially created with added moisturisers and natural extracts to leave your hands feeling clean and soft'. The handwash is soap free, pH balanced and can be used by all members of the family.
Using the handwash is easy. You press down on the pump and an appropriate amount of the handwash is released into your hand. I don't find that you get trails of handwash dripping from the pump afterwards like you do with some handwashes, so that's a positive.
The handwash is a lovely light yellow colour and has a nice smell of honeysuckle. It is not a very strong smell but you can tell you're using a scented handwash and afterwards the scent stays on your hands for a little while. The handwash lathers up nicely and washes off easily. It leaves my hands feeling normal, not particularly moisturised but not at all dry as some handwashes leave them.
I think this is an excellent bargain and it is one I will be buying again. It is not as moisturising as the Palmolive Milk and Honey handwash that I like or as nice smelling as the Imperial Leather Japanese Spa one that I have tried, but it is much cheaper than both and is an excellent substitute.
This handwash also comes in a Magnolia flavour and a Cornflower and Silk flavour. It is only available from Tesco, of course!
Summary: A bargain!
