Normally I don’t think too much about hand soap. I figured most of them had to be the same. Pump, suds, rinse, dry…very dry….icky dry hands. Unless of course you take that extra step of putting lotion on each time you wash your hands. This is the first difference I noticed about the Orchid Antibacterial Hand Soaps! They did not dry my hands out. I noticed right after the first use that it felt like I had put lotion on afterwards, only I didn’t!
The products smell awesome as well. We reviewed two hand soaps and one hand sanitizer in our home. I put one soap in our main bathroom, one in the kitchen.
After only one day the girls had taken the one from the kitchen and snuck it up to their upstairs bathroom. When confronted they said it smelled so good they had to have it. I couldn’t blame them.
This product is available exclusively at H-E-B, but is totally comparable to brands such as Bath and Body Works! Just check out these amazing scents:
- Vanilla Cream & Apple
- Jasmine Tea & Basil
- Cactus Flower & Mango
- White Lavender & Mint
- Vanilla Cream & Apple Blossom
I was able to try the Moisturizing Vanilla Cream & Apple Blossom hand soap (my favorite from the bunch), the Gentle Foaming Cactus Flower & Mango (the one my children snuck out of the kitchen) and the Jasmine Tea & Basil Hand Sanitizer.
All of the scents are beautiful and not so strong that they over power you. The Orchid line runs from about a $1.00 to $2.50. Very affordable prices for a product that is department store quality! You can save even more on that by grabbing this coupon to take a $1.00 off!
I have nothing negative to say about this one at all. The quality, the softness, the scents and even the packaging are all great and it is definitely a product I would by for my family to use. I have a suggestion for a few scents though… Rosemary Mint and Sage Lemongrass! Those are my very favorite and are not the easiest scents to find.
