I don’t know what it is, but I’m kind of obsessed with hand soaps. When I spot a good hand soap (not that orangey-yellow stuff) at a restaurant or at someone’s home, I get excited and enjoy my hand washing experience all the better. Now that I’m decorating my new home, I’m on the hunt for the perfect hand soap that will impress houseguests, smell amazing and feel great on hands.
Here are my picks that smell great and look stylish in any bathroom:
I’m hooked on Aesop’s hand soaps and this one is my favorite. The smell of citrus mixed with rosemary and lavender is fresh and invigorating. Plus, my skin feels clean and not at all dry when I wash multiple times a day. The price is a bit absurd, but the bottle looks chic, smells absolutely amazing and lasts a long time.
If you want organic, vegan, gluten free soap that is full of nourishing ingredients with pretty packaging and lovely scents try Nourish Organic. Quinoa protein heals dry skin and shea butter and aloe moisturize. I personally like the lavender mint wash, which smells clean and fresh, and leaves hands really soft.
I’m a big fan of C.O. Bigelow’s Lemon Hand Wash. It smells like fresh squeezed lemons and contains skin brightening ingredients such as vitamin C, which is great for those pesky sun spots that creep up on the back of hands. It lathers well and leaves skin feeling soft and squeaky clean.
J.R. Watkins makes nice plant-based formula hand washes in a variety of scents—grapefruit, coconut, aloe and green tea. The scents are subtle, but the clear gels feel nice on skin and is affordable. Plus, the pretty packaging goes with all bathroom styles.
I got hooked on Malin + Goetz lime hand + body wash when I found it in the bathroom at one of my favorite boutique fitness classes. The scent is subtle and fresh and the clear gel is silky, leaving hands soft and hydrated.
Mrs. Meyers hand soap in apple is a staple in my house. It smells like juicy tart apples and never irritates sensitive skin, containing aloe vera gel, olive oil and essential oils.
