marks and spencer essential coconut and white orchid hand wash

Today, I am going to talk about a daily use product which none of us can do without. Ever since I embraced motherhood my frequency of washing hands increased manifold which led to dry and parched hands. With a baby its impossible not to clean your hands over and over again. I was therefore on a lookout for a handwash that was gentle enough and could do a good job at cleaning as well. That’s when I thought of trying M&S Coconut & White Orchid Hand Wash. Here’s how I found it-Price- INR 399 for 300 ml

Key ingredients: Aqua, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Chloride, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Glycerin, Parfum, Cocamide DEA, PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Tetrasodium EDTA, DMDM Hydantoin, Propylene Glycol, Citric Acid, Sodium Benzoate, Cocos Nucifera Fruit Extract, Magnesium Nitrate, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Magnesium Chloride, Methylisothiazolinone, benzyl salicylateAbout- Lift your senses with this pampering coconut and white orchid hand wash.

How to use- Take a coin size amount of the product in your hand, massage into hands under running water. Say Hello to clean and soft hands.My Take on Marks And Spencer Coconut & White Orchid Hand Wash- M&S Coconut & White Orchid Hand Wash comes in a transparent plastic bottle with pump packaging. There is a picture of coconut and wild orchids in the front and all necessary details at the back. It’s a simple yet classy packaging. The fragrance is oh so amazing. I like coconut-smelling products and it has a mix of both coconut and wild orchid. The smell is sweet and lingers on for a while. It is neither overpowering nor mild. In fact, it’s more like an edible smell, like some kind of a flavored nariyal barfi (yum!)

The hand wash is completely transparent in color and has thin to medium consistency. You will need a coin size amount and the product will lather well and wash off quickly without any residue being left behind. Your hands will feel soft and conditioned post usage, unlike my regular handwash which leaves them dry and stretched. It will be great for people with sensitive skin as it is mild and gentle on the skin.

It does not contain parabens and alcohol which is a great plus point as alcohol in any product will cause dryness. I totally adore this product, only con being the cost as this does not last me more than a month and is a tad bit expensive for a handwash. Another issue could be the availability, the online shopping sites show it unavailable and neither the regular beauty stores have it. You need to go to M&S showroom only to buy it. There are many other interesting variants available online though.Pros:
