Top 7 liquid hand soaps: Best hand wash at all price points

In our line of work, we’re lucky enough to have tried and tested dozens of hand wash or liquid hand soaps.

Liquid hand soaps can be a decor piece in their own right, helping to add style to any sink arrangement, but with so many products on the market it can be hit and miss finding a great one.

We’ve had many requests to round up our favourite products and one of our most popular posts has been this list of liquid hand soaps so we’ve just updated it to include the latest and best!

  1. We recently stayed at The Provincial Hotel in Ballarat and the bathroom had The Grampians Goods Co. Grapefruit & Gernium Body Wash – it is amazing and I bought a pump bottle of it from reception – it gets my vote – I love it.

  2. I love how Bath and Body Works Foaming Hand Soap is nourishing to my skin. A single purchase gives me peace of mind that my family gets cleaned and sanitized when needed. It’s fun to switch to a different scent that a set of this provides.

  3. Best hand wash…very moisturising, beautifully scented, not animal tested, no palm oils/petrochemicals and Australian made….BOSISTO’S Banksia Fkower and Lavender. Full of essential oils. Only $8.00 at supermarkets and refills available.
