I really dislike using rubber gloves at the best of times but when they are poor fitting and poor quality it makes it even worse.
I bought these from Asda as I needed a new pair of rubber gloves and I thought that this one would be fine, thought I may as well give a cheap brand a go and see how they are. They were quite disappointing though and I won't be buying any more from this range or this cheap again.
They came in a sealed packet so I couldn't see them first to see the size or thickness of them.
They are too big for my hands, so much so that they were almost slipping off whilst using them which obviously isn't useful as I need to use them to cover my hands for a reason. They are also very thin so that whilst cleaning I can feel things easily which is fine in some respects but not great in others for example the heat of very hot washing up water goes through and hurts my hands.
The second time I went to use these they felt damp inside, I wondered if water had just got in somehow and so tried to use them but realised they had a hole in. I don't know how they managed to get a hole in so fast.
When taking these off they kind of stick to your skin too and make it really difficult to get off without turning them inside out.
I really don't rate these, they are now in the bin and I will stick to better brands in future.
I've got really sensitive, eczema-prone skin so I am always careful when it comes to washing up and I try to always make sure that the washing up liquid doesn't make contact with my skin. I find that the easiest way to protect my skin from getting covered in the chemical filled water is to simply wear rubber gloves. The gloves obviously keep my hands nice and dry as well, so I don't need to dry them once I'm done washing up - anything that helps save that little extra bit of time is always a bonus!
When it comes to rubber gloves, I usually use one pair for a week or two and then buy some fresh ones; I'm a bit of a hygiene freak though and one pair could be re-used over and over for quite a while as long as you kept them clean and I've never had problems with any brand of rubber gloves holding smells or staining and these particular ones from Asda's smartprice range are nice and thick and durable so there's not been any issues with them tearing or anything.
These retail at just 47 pence per pack of two which is very cheap. I'd say that this is the average price for supermarket own brand rubber gloves though and Tesco's version retails for around the same price. I usually pick up a few packs of these at once as then I have a little stockpile and I find that three packs will last me for a good few months.
The gloves are bright yellow which is the trademark colour for rubber gloves and as far I am aware, no other colours are currently available. The gloves are a decent size and they're one size fits all - I find them a little loose, especially around my wrists but they do stay on securely and they don't slip around or rub against my skin when I'm washing up.
Putting the gloves on the right fingers is easy as the finger's are all shaped like they are on a real hand, eg the little finger and thumb finger compartments are an accurate shape if that makes any sense at all! When I first started using rubber gloves I'd often put two fingers in one of the finger 'compartments' but I've got the hang of it now! The gloves are made of natural rubber, which Asda warn 'can cause allergic reactions'. Luckily I am fine with these and I've never experienced any redness, itchiness or discomfort at all, despite how sensitive my skin is!
The gloves aren't particulary lightweight as they're quite thick but I don't find that they add a noticeable amount of bulk to my hands and I am able to grip and hold items easily thanks to the tiny raised spots on the palm areas of the gloves. The gloves don't become overlly slippery when wet, meaning I've never had any plates etc slip out of my hands while cleaning them.
Overall, these are very cheap and durable rubber gloves. Highly recommended.
I don't often shop in Asda but the other day I called in there to pick up a few bits while I was out, I needed some rubber gloves and decided to try their Smart Price ones, I usually use Tesco Everyday Value ones and get on quite well with them, I thought these Asda ones would be similar. I always use rubber gloves for washing up, cleaning or gardening, I like to take care of my nails and keeping harsh chemicals from them as much as I can helps me to do this. I also like to use rubber gloves when I'm dealing with the litter tray.
They are sold in a pack of two and I paid the measly sum of 47p making them a very good price. The packaging is very simple just a mainly clear plastic bag with the Asda Smart Price logo at the top. The plastic pack also informs the customer that this is a pack of 2 pairs of rubber gloves that are made from natural rubber and come in only one size which is medium. The front of the pack allows you to see the gloves inside and they are the usual yellow colour that most of these gloves are.
When I opened the gloves I wasn't expecting great quality for that price and although the rubber felt thin they didn't seem too bad, they were however quite big, I'm not sure I would have called these medium as they really are quite large.
The gloves have spots on the palms to help you grip, I do find these little grip spots useful on rubber gloves as when washing up things are wet and soapy and can be slippery too, the grip spots helps me to keep hold of them.
As I mentioned I thought the gloves look on the large size when I took them from the pack and they are, the fingers are far too long and wide making wearing them quite difficult and clumsy. I find it quite difficult to use these for washing up or cleaning, the long fingers get in the way and keep folding over which is a shame because the price of them is very good.
I have now given up on the Asda Smart Price rubber gloves for cleaning and washing up and have used the a couple of times when I've been messing about in the garden, even for this though they are not ideal, they feel clumsy on my hands.
If you have large hands or long fingers then these cheap rubber gloves may well suit you, however if like me you don't then I wouldn't really recommend them. They are the same price as Tesco Everyday Value 2 pack of rubber gloves but in my personal opinion Tesco's are a much better fit. I wont be buying these again.
One thing that i don't wear very often are rubber gloves for cleaning, this i think is due to me working in a medical environment and i have to wear them (under duress!) for work.
Just recently though i have noticed that my skin has become very dry and cracked, which at work is no problem as under the latex free gloves i have to wear a cotton liner glove for this reason, but at home even washing up liquid has been irritating my skin, never mind my beloved bleach!
As a last resort i decided to purchase some rubber gloves for when my hands got really sore, my friend reccomended the Asda Smartpriced one's as they are slightly furry inside, so hopefully reducing down the chance of my hands sweating and creating more of a problem with my skin.
Within the pack there are two pairs of gloves, one for my sore skin days, and one for oven cleaning and random bouts of children vomiting days (i handle bloodied surgical instruments daily, yet a bit of vomit creases me!), with the gloves being a bog standard yellow colour.
The fit of the glove was again standard, though were a little big on me due to my abnormally small hands, my husband has worn these once and stated that whilst he had managed to put them on, he was slowly losing sensation in his fingers! (So dramatic, lol!).
The insides are indeed quite furry feeling, and though the gloves are not as thick as i was expecting, the furry element did hold a bit of the heat away from my skin, with my hands not really feeling that damp after removing them.
I have used these to wash up, scrub in and even bleached and scrubbed the toilet (though these are now specifically saved for that job!), with the smallest amount of wear and tear, though there is a little discoloration from the bleach, but i still find them more than useable, and i do find myself wearing them a bit more often, even when not having a sore skin day!
Price wise these are a fantastic price, available within Asda's budget brand, these gloves only cost me 47p, and with me being able to use and re-use over again i would highly recommend them (but perhaps not to people with huge hands!).

~Smart Price Rubber Gloves~
Asda offer a few different rubber gloves which are designed to be worn whilst cleaning. These rubber gloves are part of their budget range Smart Price.
These rubber gloves are described as being 'medium' and are made of natural rubber. They can be reused by rinsing and dabbing dry after each use. A simple white bag holds the gloves. Each bag has 2 pairs (so 4 in total) rubber gloves.
A 2pk can be bought in store or from www.asda.com priced at just 47p.
Despite having sensitive skin, I don't often wear rubber gloves whilst cleaning or doing the washing up. To be honest, I absolutely HATE the feel of rubber gloves! For some household chores, rubber gloves are essential. I don't see the point in paying through the nose for occasional use rubber gloves so I buy these gloves - why not..they are a purse friendly price!
The gloves are easy to store in my cleaning cupboard. All of the gloves are stuck together and need pulled apart. They look like any other rubber gloves but are perhaps a little thinner than the average. They are a dusty yellow colour and feature gripper indents on the palm and finger tips. They smell like rubber in general and aren't offensive in any way, shape or form.
These rubber gloves slip on well and can accommodate my slightly large, female hands without being constrictive. I cannot imagine these being comfortable for men with really large hands! They feel ok on - the inside material is fairly soft and the gloves are stretchy enough to pull over my wrists without sliding back down. I haven't experience any reaction to the material though the packaging does state natural rubber may cause an allergic reaction so be careful.
These gloves aren't the thickest but they do the job in hand. I wear rubber gloves when cleaning my oven (as recommended by Mr Muscle) and these do a good job of keeping my hands and wrists safe from splashes of oven cleaner. I can scrub away without the gloves tearing or causing any concerns at all. I also wear them for doing my windows and can grip the cloth perfectly fine - no issues. I dispose of the gloves after these household chores as they get very dirty. They are fine to put in with the household rubbish.
I have worn these an odd time for doing the dishes but mainly if I have cut my hand and don't want the cut becoming in contact with soapy water. I notice a difference in how much I can feel through these gloves compared to more expensive options. That being said, they don't let in water and keep my hands dry. The grippers are ideal for when I am holding plates and work well. If I use them for dishes, I give them a quick rinse under the tap (they don't inflate much nor spring leaks!) and use the dish cloth to give them a quick dry before hanging them over the tap to fully dry. They come up fine and I usually get a few uses from them before they need chucked.
These gloves are perfectly fine for various household chores. Some may wish to use them for all cleaning chores but I just use them occasionally and for specific chores. They are a decent quality though not amazing and do start to show wear and tear after a few uses. They offer a nice fit and are definitely value for money.

Cleaning, a pet hate of mine. I can't not do the cleaning, so I try and make it as pleasant as possible. If I'm doing any cleaning, apart from the washing up, I like to use rubber gloves, just so I've got peace of mind that my hands aren't going to go dry and horrible when using different cleaning fluids.
These rubber gloves are from Asda's Smartprice range. They come in a basic plastic bag with the usual Smartprice green and white design. The bag actually contains two pairs of gloves, so for 53 pence, this is a bargain!
The gloves only come in one size, which is quite annoying for me as I only have small hands. My fingers never completely fill the entire finger in the glove so I usually have a little bit at the end that just annoys me! Although I've only got small hands, the gloves don't fall off, definitely a plus!
The gloves themselves, are bright in the yellow colour we all associate with rubber gloves, the palms of the gloves have little grip spots. The rubber material that the gloves are made from isn't exactly the best quality you can get, but for the price, who can moan? It is quite a flimsy rubber, but they still do the job well.
The inside of the gloves have that some awful feel to them, and after wearing the gloves for a while and taking them off, they do leave a horrible rubber smell on your hands, but I have experienced this with all rubber gloves, so it's not these gloves in particular.
At a little over 26 pence for each pair of these rubber gloves, I'd recommend them without a doubt. They do exactly the same job as other rubber gloves, the only downside to them is the thin rubber they are made from, and only being available in one size.
Usually, finding something at a cheap price may allow many of you (such as myself for example) to associate the product with cheap quality, right? Well yes, but these pink and magical gloves are the whole package! Great quality AND for a good price.
I purchase these pink gloves from my local Asda for roughly 89p, containing a pack of 3 medium sizes, however, they are also available in alternative sizes such as medium and small, so you can purchase them according to your personal requirements (I personally find that the large and medium ones are pretty much the same size though) so don't let the size decieve you. They do tend to go on offer sometimes too as i purchased two packs for a pound once, so the price is quite cheap in regards to what its worth, unallowing that to be an issue.
When I wash my dishes or want to do some ''hardcore'' cleaning, I prefer to have a pair of gloves on as I tend to use bleech and alternative cleaning products that may be sensitive to the skin, thus, these pair of gloves are very advantageable in terms of avoiding any prologed contact with cleaning products as they prevent all the cleaning products which contain various amounts of chemicals from reaching and damaging the skin, which is a bonus. Additionally, these gloves don't change into an alternative colour when using alongside your cleaning products and therefore, thats also a benefit as it allows them to last quite a long time. They usually last me about 3 to 4 weeks with everyday cleaning including wearing them when washing dishes and still look healthy after cleaning alot of bacteria which is a must for me as I cannot clean with something that doesen't look clean at the same time.
They also come in alternative colours such as yellow, orange and blue, and is also a unisex item, so don't think you can get away with cleaning up just because the gloves are pink men! ;) additionally the product is relatively rough and therefore, avoids dry skin on your hands after you clean as they are quite thick in comparison to alternative gloves that I have tried which are very thin, thus, allowing the irritation of skin to occur and contain a luxury flock lining for extra comfort!
The gloves are also made from natural rubber, thus, not being slippery and therefore benefiting you in terms of grip due to the fact that ''rubber latex'' is included within them which is a naturally renewable resource however, this may also be disadvantageable as this resource has the ability of causing an allergic reaction.
The packaging of the product is plastic and therefore, as it states within the packaging should be ''stored in a clean, dry place, out of the reach of sunlight''
Similar products can also be purchased at a local tesco, sainsburies or LIDL for roughly the same pricing, however, I would not suggest you purchase them from 99p stores as although they are available to you within this store, the quality of the product is definitely not as beneficial as Asda's! Asda also do reward credit cards so if you own one, then you may benefit from the purchase of this product in addition to having the ability to purchase it for even cheaper, and if you don't own one then you can simply register online following the link below if you wish. (It only takes 3 minutes by the way) and you can read more about what it is for those of you who do not acknowledge this.
You also have the ability to purchase the above gloves online and get them delivered straight to your door which may also save you alot of hastle by visiting the following link http://groceries.asda.com/asda-estore/ho​me/homecontainer and also have the ability to purchase alternative groceries, however, you will need to register online, yet this is free and beneficial so you have nothing to worry about.

Asda Smartprice Rubber Gloves.
I don't generally use rubber gloves much when cleaning, unless I am cleaning the oven or cleaning my leather sofas.
Again as with other Smartprice cleaning stuff I have reviewed these gloves come packaged in a simple plastic bag emblazoned with the smartprice logo.
My thoughts ~
56p for 2 pairs of rubber gloves, what can go wrong... Nothing that's what!
As I have a little phobia about rubber gloves I don't like to use them. My phobia started when I put a glove on to find a spider inside! Arghhh!
I used to keep a pair by the sink and used them every time I done the dishes until that happened and now I rarely use them at all. Sometimes though it's better to put on a pair of rubber gloves rather than burn your skin!
I use Mr Muscle oven cleaner and the smell is bad enough so I would never not wear gloves to do this task. These gloves protect my hands and do the job intended.
When I clean my leather sofas I use boiling hot water and washing up liquid as I find this is best for getting rid of sticky finger marks caused by my children! In order to do this without burning my hands with the boiling water I wear rubber gloves, again these gloves do as intended and stop my fingers being scaulded.
At just 26.5p a pair you can afford to use this as single-use gloves.
They are great if a little on the thin side but they do the job intended so there are no complaints from me.
Thanks for reading :o) x
Sometimes when I am cleaning with different products I very sore hands and they come out in a little rash that is very unattractive and takes ages to go away, so I like to have a pair of rubber gloves in my kitchen on standby at all times.
These gloves are basic, yellow rubber gloves and they are quite durable, but nowhere near as thick as more expensive gloves, however I find that the more expensive gloves rip as often as these and at least these ones are very cheap to replace.
One drawback about these gloves being a little thinner is that when the water is very hot, they do not provide much protection against the heat.
These gloves are a little on the loose side, though the fit my hands fine and feel comfortable when they are on. Also when they get wet they seem to stay on alright and do not slip much when they are on. These gloves only come in one size, so people with very tiny hands may find these are a very loose.
I bought these rubber gloves for 57p in ASDA, there is 2 pairs in a pack so these work out under 30p a pair, which is fantastic value in my opinion, even if they do need re-bought every now and again because they aren't that strong and rip every now and again.
Overall I think that these are a great little bargain buy, they are very cheap and are good enough quality, I rip the more expensive gloves as often as I rip these rubber gloves so I do not see the point in paying extra for them. Overall I would give these gloves 4 out of 5 stars.

When I clean, I really don't like doing it with bare hands. This is mainly due to always having my nails painted and I don't want any chemicals ruining that and chipping off the nail polish. This is where having rubber gloves in the house comes in very handy.
== Packaging, price and the product ==
Being an Asda Smart Price product, you would expect this product to be cheap...and it is! For just 47p, you get two pairs of rubber gloves and in comparison to the next price up, they are a bargain. Another Asda own brand pair will set you back £1.01 but unlike this product, you do only get the one pair of gloves.
As these are Asda's own brand of rubber gloves, the packaging is extremely basic. The bright yellow gloves can just be seen through the white plastic packet. About a third of the front, from the bottom up, is Asda green while the rest gives the product name and Asda Smart Price logo.
Inside the packet are two pairs of yellow rubber gloves. In the Smart Price range, only one size is available and that is medium. While I do think other sizes should be available, limiting the options is one of the ways that Asda makes prices so low. This size does fit me quite well though and I find that there is only a little bit of extra room in the gloves but this makes them easier to take off. These cheaper rubber gloves are not the best quality but what else can you expect? The rubber is quite thin but this does also make the gloves easier to stretch. The palms of the gloves are textured which gives a really good grip to them. On first use, the insides are quite powdery but once you put them in warm, soapy water, this soon goes away.
These gloves actually last quite a long time. I have never yet had a pair rip on me or fall to pieces. I generally only change them when I think I've been using them too long or if I clean something particularly disgusting like the oven or use some stronger chemicals compared to basic products. I do keep a pair separate to use only for the washing up and seeing as I don't ever have that much to do with only cooking for myself, I find that one pair will last well over a week.
== Overall ==
Asda Smart Price rubber gloves are a great value for money product that last a really long time. It is also good that you get two pairs for such a low price and that they don't fall to pieces after a day.
When it comes to cleaning, the majority of the time I will wear rubber gloves. I have dry skin and eczema, and having my hands in water, or using harsh chemicals will cause flare ups. Eczema is awful at the best of times, but on your hands it's a nightmare as you're constantly using them and so it doesn't always get a chance to heal, which is why rubber gloves are an essential product for me.
I've used many brands over the years, but quite frankly I find them all pretty much the same. I used to always buy Lidl's own brand gloves, but since I mainly shop in ASDA now, I have switched to the ASDA smart price version.
The gloves come in a pack of two, and are packaged in a plastic bag. One minor problem with the Smart Price gloves over other brands, is that they only come in one size, which is medium. In the past I have always bought small as I have particularly small hands, and have found in the past medium sized gloves can feel a little bit loose. Whilst I would still prefer that they made these in a smaller size, in fairness, the gloves aren't too bad on me size-wise, they're certainly not so big they slip off, but they're still just slightly roomier than I would like.
The gloves are pretty much like any others. Yellow in colour, they have a textured surface to the palms, which aid grip, especially useful, I find when I'm washing up. They do have that awful powdery feeling to the inside when you first put them on, and they will leave a horrible rubber smell on your hands, however I unfortunately find that most brands will do this.
These are a budget product and not made from the thickest rubber in the world, however I wouldn't really expect that for the price. I do find the gloves durable though, I've never had them split on me, and although I rinse them after use as stated on the pack, I only really throw one pair away when they begin to look particularly grubby.
At just 47p for a pack of two from ASDA, I think these have got to be some of the cheapest household gloves on the market. Considering that the next brand up, the ASDA's own brand cost £1.01 for one pair, and Marigold's are £1.60 for one pair, then these really are a bargain.
On the whole I am very pleased with these gloves. At less than 25p a pair, you really can't go wrong, and the only gripe I have with the product is that they only come in one size. I will continue to buy these gloves and I would definitely recommend them - especially if you're on a budget.
