Today I am going to review one of my impulsive purchases, though it was impulsive yet i do not regret buying it. It is Avon naturals cucumber and melon hand soap. It was launched last month by Avon and it had 30% off :pompom: on it as special introductory discount. I cudn’t refrain myself from buying it as I was bored off the Dettol hand wash which has been used in my house since ages so I ordered it instantly. Also this hand soap contains melon and cucumber and i use a lot of cucumber in my home made beauty therapies, so i took the plunge without thinking much. Lets take a detailed review of the same.
What the bottle says?
Formulaed with cucumber and melon extract, this hand soap reduces germs as it cleanses. Gentle, moisturising formula. Dermatologically tested.
How to use:
Pump up a generous amount onto hands, add water and work into lather for atleast 15 seconds. Rinse. Dry hands thoroughly.
The original cost is 199 INR for 200 ml, this month it was on offer so i got it for INR 135. It comes in a c-green colour plastic tube which has a white pump dispenser. It also has the puicture of cucumber slices on it which gives it a cool and summery effect, infact the colour of the bottle is quite soothing to the eyes.
My take on the product
First things first, this is one of the hand soaps which i bought at the spur of the moment but have been loving since then. As I have already mentioned it comes in a cute c-green coloured bottle, the hand wash inside has no colour though it can’t be called colourless as the transparent liquid has a green tinge to it. Not much quantity is required to clean the hands thoroughly. To take out the liquid, you just have to press the dispenser from the top which seems to be strong and sturdy.
Now moving on to the fragrance part, as the name suggest it has cucumber and melon in it, so it should smell like them only. Though I could smell the melon( I sniffed for 2 minutes actually to find out), i cudnt smell cucumber, anyways cucumber has a very mild fragrance so expecting tons of it in the hand soap was something not done. The fragrance of melons was quite overpowering though not at all to my dislike. The hand soap does not lather much and the consistency of the gel is also quite thick. It comes off easily with little water and 1 minute of rinse is enough to feel clean hands.
The fragrance lingers for 5-10 minutes after washing hands and starts to vanish thereafter. My hands don’t feel moisturised but neither do they feel dry after washing with this hand soap. It is quite gentle on the hands and does the job of cleaning quite effectively.
