It is never a good idea to send me products that will ‘treat me to an instant mood boost’ or enable me to ‘experience the scent of a country garden’ as I will take this literally and end up disappointed when I’m not feeling instantly more cheerful or transported off to a field of lavender.
That said, these new aromatic handwashes from Palmolive, available in Bergamot & Verbena and Lavender & Chamomile, are lovely to use and the vintage-style packaging certainly looks elegant. They would not be out of place in an upmarket guest house.
The Bergamot & Verbena variety, infused with zesty bergamot oil from Southern Italy and verbena extract, is ‘refreshing and aromatic’ designed to give you ‘an instant mood boost’.
The Lavender & Chamomile variety is ‘caring and aromatic’. Infused with soothing natural lavender oil from Provence and chamomile extract, it will enable you to ‘experience the scent of a country garden’.
The handwashes, priced at £1.99 each, certainly added a look of sophistication to our kitchen and bathroom. They are nice to use with an aroma that is subtle and not over-powering.
As for an instant mood boost and experiencing the scent of a country garden, I’d say no. But I’d still use them.
I was sent two handwashes free of charge to review. Further information can be found at www.colgate.co.uk.
