Quick review – Heathcote & Ivory Spiced Pear & Ginger hand wash

by on October 11, 2012 · 2 comments

Now let’s get one thing straight, I don’t consider myself to be grown-up in any way, shape or form! But if one day I was to ‘mature’ I would have this in my bathroom/kitchen. The first thing that attracted me to this particular hand wash was the print (similar colours on le blog) and the squareness of the bottle. The print is inspired by Sanderson’s vintage wallpaper print Primavera Chaffinch from the Art Deco period in 1926. When most people think of vintage they probably think if roses and chintz type patterns which is what makes this one so interesting. It must have looked ultra-modern at the time given previous Victorian and Edwardian eras of decor. Sorry I’m a bit of geek when it comes to stuff like this….anyway back to the review!

As for the hand wash itself the scent wasn’t what I expected, there is more of a ginger smell rather than spiced pear and I was hoping for this to be a bit Christmasy – yes I just said the ‘C’ word. It doesn’t get super foamy like other hand washes but it is also paraben and sulphate free. Jamie used loads the first few times because of the foam issue (as did I) so you need to mindful that you actually don’t need much to get your hands clean.

You would think this would be more expensive than it is – £10 for 300ml and looks nicer prettier than a bottle of Carex! If this grown-up version of hand wash isn’t your style, H&I also do a lovely vintage rose line, and also make products for Cath Kidston too!
