Whilst I feel there isn’t the need to have particularly mixed feelings about hand soap in general I say is it’s always fun to have a little variety. I was blessed to be given these 3 hand soap variants at a recent Watsons event. They’re not organic and the only thing I feel they lack is antibacterial properties but they do the job of getting grime off well in three seconds under the tap.

I immediately opened this one to install in our guest bathroom at home, because if there’s any hope of natural antibacterial action I thought tea tree and witch hazel ought to do the job. The scent of this one is clean outdoorsy and fresh but not overly complex. Of course I then discovered via the ingredients list that these hand soaps do not contain natural fragrance or ingredients and are merely scented as whatever they’re labeled to be scented of. Go figure, while I’m not offended I do feel a teensy weensy bit misled by the nature-evoking packaging. You can’t have it all every time, so for organic skincare lovers this may not be the best hand soap to consider but I can attest to its cleaning abilities and that it doesn’t dry out my hands after or make them feel itchy (as Safeguard tends to do). What I do particularly like is the tubby bottle which ensures it won’t topple over when you pump product out even on near empty days (there’s nearly nothing that can ruin my day quicker than a bottle that falls over that way).
