Hand soap - a luxurious must-have for every stylish bathroom!
Did you know house guests have been known to use your choice of hand soap (and bath towel!!) as a measure of your commitment to interior quality and style ... crazy yet true!
Good news - there are countless brands creating refreshing, fragrant, naturally produced hand washes with stunning packaging to meet your every desire and impress those judging eyes.
Sunday Minx shares our Top 10 Soaps and Hand Washes to help ensure your bathroom is not only guest ready, but a daily reward for you too.
Each brand has been carefully selected with their own special characteristic, benefit or unique details (and are listed in no particular order). We are sure you will find a favourite!
1. Bondi Wash
A local love! Bondi Wash exudes the Australian lifestyle creating fresh, innovative soaps full of Aussie botanical fragrances. Sydney Peppermint and Rosemary is our personal preference – the essential oils are deliciously aromatic yet not overpowering.
Highlight: When light hits the bottle your soap literally sparkles – we love it!
Be sure to explore the continually expanding collection by Bondi Wash including beautiful Baby products, Laundry and Pet washes. They will have your entire home sparkling.
2. Terrible Twins
Created in northern Sweden and baring the iconic Scandinavian design aesthetic of simplicity and functionality, this collection of spa products has a very cool design edge whilst also being made with organic materials including sunflower and coconut oils.
With 10 fragrances to choose from, No.3 Pomegranate ticks the box for us! Fresh and fruity yet not too sweet.
Other products in the Terrible Twins spa series feature beautiful Swedish recycled amber glass jars with glass stoppers. Create a vignette of your favourite products for instant vanity style.
3. Grown Alchemist
This brand is the scientist with attitude in the group! Grown Alchemist know their stuff. They have developed products AND packaging using every natural technology and organic approach available to them.
Their Sweet Orange, Cedarwood & Sage Hand Wash claims that “the coconut oil releases triglycerides that along with fennel seed gently emulsify and remove dirt and grime.” Wow.
Science aside, the gel formula does make your hands feel particularly fresh and smooth. That is a winner in our eyes.
4. Ashley & Co
Our initial attraction to Ashley and Co’s Parakeets & Pearls Washup was the description on the bottle. Ashley and Co asks us to remember handwritten love letters and dressing up for dinner – they introduce their old world scent of freshly picked Green Tea and White Lilies in a way that made us nostalgic for old world glamour.
This New Zealand brand has recently expanded to Australia bringing with them over 30 products of beautiful signature scents spanning candles, diffuses and body creams.
The limited edition Parakeets & Pearls Hand Wash fragrance is in fact soap free and full of natural antiseptics – giving the gift of fragrance and good health. Definitely worth trying from our friends across the ditch!
One for the gents. Handsome Skincare for Men have created their collection with our male species in mind.
Founders Matt and Mark were frustrated with the scarcity of male beauty products so set about to create a quality collection made with organic ingredients suitable to the grooming needs of men.
Their mission is simple: "To Make the World More Handsome."
High five and well done we say! Their Cedarwood, Orange Peel and White Cypress Hand Wash received thumbs up from all genders in our household and looks sensational paired with our SHADOW Hand Towel on the vanity.
6. Klein's Perfumery
A Melbourne institution. Located in Fitzroy, Victoria, Klein’s have created an Aladdin’s cave of niche fragrances.
We love the Fitzroy Extrovert Hand Wash, not only for its combination of Calabrian Bergamot and Australian Mint, but for its exterior featuring images captured by Melbourne’s most famous social photographer Rennie Ellis.
Audacious, sexy and often shocking – the images that wrap your hand wash will be sure to create a talking point for all who visit.
This list would be incomplete without the inclusion of Aesop. With humble beginnings in Melbourne, Aesop is now a global phenomenon in the creation of luxury skin and body products.
If the products alone aren't enough to tempt you - their store designs will! Aesop have created a truly magnificent retail experience that only enhances our love of their products. Every store has a unique, innovative and highly stimulating design and layout creating excitement no matter if you are shopping in Sydney, London or New York.
With two hand washes in their range - we can't go past their Reverence Aromatique Hand Wash. With a delicate blend of finely milled pumice within the gel, this hand wash gently exfoliates as it cleans. Winning on all fronts.
Who doesn’t need a positive affirmation to kick start the day? For those who want to add some fun to their bathroom, Babescrub packaging gushes with #girlboss and #bethebabe attitudes and mottos.
Hoorah for Ecoya! Known for their stunning collections of aromatic candle fragrances, Ecoya now allows us to take our favourite scents beyond the atmosphere and onto our bathroom vanity.
Their hand wash collection includes all of your much-loved Ecoya aromas– Lemongrass and Ginger, French Pear, Vanilla Bean and Lotus Flower. The hypoallergenic formula hydrates as you wash making your hands soft AND delightfully fragranced.
It would be remiss not to include this inspiring company who give 100% of their profits to help provide hygiene and sanitation assistance to people in need.
Thankyou are a remarkable company who not only create great products – but who do it selflessly and with a mission to deliver greater good in our world.
We love their Citrus Punch Hand Sanitiser and Wash Gift Pack. As they say: Grapefruit hand sanitiser POW! Lime and coriander hand wash DOUBLE POW! Germs don’t stand a chance against this fresh and fruity combo.
With over 300,000 people already benefiting from disease-fighting services assisted by thankyou funding, we think there is no better reason to add their product to your bathroom rotation.
No matter your preference in design, fragrance or attitude - there is a hand soap for out there for you.
Don't forget - to create a bathroom that oozes luxury, style and sophistication find your favourite hand wash and accompany with your Sunday Minx Hand Towel!
