Soaper Duper Hand Wash
Hand wash may not be the most exciting product to talk about on a beauty blog but, especially if you're someone who needs to wash their hands a lot, it can be really important to get right. If you manage to find one that doesn't strip all the moisture from your hands and leaves them smelling divine to boot then it can turn a rather mundane task into a truly pleasurable experience.
I love everything about the Soaper Duper range. It was founded by Marcia Kilgore who is also the brains behind other hugely successful brands such as Soap and Glory and Beauty Pie. As much as they can they use recycled packaging and naturally sourced ingredients with no nasties such as sulfates, phthalates or mineral oils. On top of that they also give money to the charity WaterAid who aim to provide clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene to people across the world. What's not to love?
At the time of writing the range includes hand wash, hand cream, body wash, body butter, body scrub and body lotion in 7 different scents; coconut, passionfruit, tuberose, lemon, shea butter, ginger, and yuzu fruit and fig. Prices range from about £5 for a 500ml hand wash to £7.50 for a 300ml body butter. So far, I have only tried the hand washes in shea butter and lemon (pictured) and I have passionfruit in the cupboard ready to go. If it wasn't for my serious shower gel backlog then I would have also tried all the body washes. I've heard nothing but good things about them and at £6 for 500ml you can afford to try every scent.
I've used SLS free hand washes before that haven't created much of a lather but even a little bit of Soaper Duper hand wash gives lots of soft creamy bubbles. Your hands are left feeling soft and not at all stripped. The scents are not synthetic or overpowering but still leave a subtle hint on the skin for a while after. They smell exactly as the names suggest. The Zesty Lemon is soft and uplifting with no hint of loo cleaner like you sometimes get with a citrus scent. It works particularly well in the kitchen. The Shea Butter is more warm and comforting. With plenty of vanilla coming through it was lovely to use during the colder months. Now that we are getting closer to summer I can't wait to crack out the fruity and exotic smelling Passionfruit.
Soaper Duper have just recently started selling directly from their own website HERE and they are also available in Tesco.
