I love Bath & Body Works Gentle Foaming Hand Soap. My favorite so far is Garden Strawberries and I can't wait to try the variety of soaps they have. I decided to try Bath & Body Works Gentle Foaming Hand Soap because I was tired of using brands that weren't helping my skin and were drying my hands out. I am constantly washing my hands during the day and this soap leaves my hands clean and feeling very soft. This soap is made up of quality ingredients that are gentle to the skin and it gets the job done. This hand soap is gentle and nourishes the skin with Aloe and Vitamin E. The variety of scents are amazing and a light scent is left on the skin after washing. When I tried this foaming hand soap I loved it after the first try. The pump on the bottle is easy to push and a thick rich creamy foam is released to wash the hands. I only need one pump of foam to wash my hands and my hands are left smelling great and soft. Over time my hands felt healthier and I've never dealt with dry skin that cracks while using this gentle foaming hand soap. I have used other hand soaps and Bath & Body Works has hit a home run. I always keep this in my bathroom and in my kitchen for the whole family to use daily. I actually enjoy washing my hands because I know that this is a soap that benefits the skin by killing germs and replenishes moisture with Aloe and Vitamin E. It's been easy to get my girls to wash their hands too because they like pushing the pump and washing their tiny hands, afterwards they run around the house smelling their hands telling me to smell them. Highly recommend this hand soap over others because of the way it leaves the skin feeling soft and clean.

Effectiveness
Washes away dirt and germs. Very gentle on the skin.

Scent
There's a variety of unique fragrances. I like Garden Strawberries and Kitchen Lemon.

For many years, I kept a stash of these soaps in my linen closet, and would replenish our supply whenever they went on sale. My mother and sister also use these soaps in their homes, and often we end up exchanging them as gifts. They come in many scents, from floral to citrus to musky perfumes, and often are available in seasonal "flavors" as well (like peppermint in the winter), and my no one in my household complains about using them. The foaming action is fun, although every once in a while the pump gets a little clogged and is difficult to use (usually because the kids have been dunking the bottle). However, I am concerned about all the chemicals my kiddos and I come in contact with every day, and I want to minimize any risk whenever I can. I hope Bath and Body Works has changed (or is changing!) their formulation, because all of the bottles I have (and have checked out quietly at Mom and Sister's house!) list triclosan as an ingredient, which has been shown to affect the immune and reproductive systems. As an at-home mama, I wash, wash, wash my hands all day long, it feels like, and really the best way to rid your hands of germs is the actually rubbing action and not the ingredients of the soap. We have changed out our soaps to a less-expensive, simply formulated brand, and I don't know if I will go back to the Bath and Body Works soaps.

Effectiveness
While it may clean your hands, it may do more damage than good, which is not a good trade off for me!

Great Scents

By 

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Bath & Body Works Gentle Foaming Hand Soap:

I have loved Bath and Body Works body products for years. I think they have some of the best shower gels and body sprays for men, and when they have a good sale you can make a killing. So I finally decided to try their foaming hand soap for the first time last year.

They have so many great scents to choose from. What I loved about the product was the texture. With one pump you have enough to wash your hands-add a little water and lather away that dirt and germs. Of course the scent was phenomenal as well, but I really was impressed by the feel of the product as I washed my hands. When water was added the foam spread nicely, not leaving the skin feeling sticky or tacky. The scent lingered slightly but was never too overpowering.

Since first trying the product last year I've never looked back. I continue to buy them, switching up the scents each time. I haven't found a bad one yet!

So many lovely fragrances

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bath & Body Works Gentle Foaming Hand Soap:

I adore the options of the different assorted bottle scents as I love a few of the Gentle Foaming Hand Soap fragrant varieties that Bath & Body Works have to offer. Deep cleansing foam soap that is gentle on the skin and with the ingenuitive foam formulation there is no sticky messes in the basin or on the bottle that can occur with various liquid hand soaps when dispensing too much. Also you only need a small amount of the Gentle Foaming Hand Soap on your hands to get a thorough clean. The Gentle Foaming Hand Soap is an antibacterial soap, removing germs from hands which is excellent for everyone, especially the kids. The only minor fault that I can find with this foam hand soap is that it is sold in a small volume bottle and is priced a little higher compared to the other brands, though for its quality in fragrances and its thorough cleaning feature its worth paying that little extra for high quality foam soap for the family. A definite recommendation to try this brand out first for foam hand soap purchases.

Too harsh for my sensitive hands

By 

from Eastlake, OH

Comments about Bath & Body Works Gentle Foaming Hand Soap:

As a preschool teacher I am constantly washing my hands during the school day. Many of our parents gifted us with these Bath and Bodyworks soaps at the holiday times to have around the classroom. While they are very nice smelling and the foam keeps the children happy, the perfumes in these soaps are far too irritating for my sensitive hands. I have dermatitis on my hands, and any extra chemicals or scents always irritate them. I also find that a liquid style soap gives a better clean, especially when trying to wipe off paint and marker stains.

Effectiveness
Putting the irritation factor aside, the cleaning power of these soaps is somewhat diminished compared to a liquid consistency soap. When I am at work, I find that the foam does not clean off paint and marker stains as well as the traditional liquid soaps do. The kids do enjoy the foam and so in that respect, it helps us to teach them about hygiene and proper hand washing.

Scent
The actual scents smell very nice, I needed to rate them this low because of the irritation factor on my very sensitive skin. Should you not be afflicted with sensitive skin, then these are indeed a very nicely scented product!

Love this soap

By 

from USA

Comments about Bath & Body Works Gentle Foaming Hand Soap:

I love the Bath and Body Works collection of foaming hand soaps. There are so many different scents to choose from, so every single taste and preference can be satisfied. The great thing about this soap is the gentle foaming. You always get the right amount of soap with one pump. It does not take forever for the suds to appear because they are there right from the start. Sometimes with other soaps it gets washed off when getting your hands wet, but this never happens with this soap so there is less waste. Also, the best part about these bottles is that you can get every single last drop out of the bottle by using the pump! No more wasted inches of soap at the bottom of the bottle that you have to unscrew the pump, turn the bottle upside down and try to fish out the last ten hand washes. With the foaming soap you get to use every last drop with convenience! That feature right there makes it all worth while in my opinion.

By

Comments about Bath & Body Works Gentle Foaming Hand Soap:

I love all Bath & Body Works Products but I especially love the Bath & Body Works Gentle Foaming Hand Soap. The assortment of scents makes it very hard to choose from, they smell so good. These are great for kids, they dispense the right amount for them. They are not messy like the bar soaps and last a long time. I love that they are not that expensive and that you can always find them on sale. The bottles are cute enough to display in each bath and kitchen. I highly recommend Bath & Body Works Gentle Foaming Hand Soap.

Effectiveness
Bath & Body Works Gentle Foaming Hand Soap is very effective at cleansing and you don't have to worry about a mess with this soap. This soap leaves hands clean and smelling fresh, not matter what scent you choose.

Scent
The variety of scents that Bath & Body Works Gentle Foaming Hand Soap come in makes it hard to choose a particular scent. I can promise that the ones I have used which is many are heavenly.

A pick me up!

By 

from USA

Comments about Bath & Body Works Gentle Foaming Hand Soap:

I love the wonderful scents of this Bath and Body Works Gentle Foaming Hand Soap. It is so nice to wash your hands and get a pick me up every single time. The foaming hand soap is very gentle and it is effective. I like that the foaming action isn't too much foam. The soap itself does not last quite as long as some foaming soaps. Also, the value isn't nearly as good for the quantity of soap you get as many other mainstream brands. The quality is there but, for me, this is more of a splurge brand. I love the lemon and the floral scents. I also love that there are always new scents. It keeps things as fresh as the lovely fragrance. I usually stick with the more mellow, natural fragrances as some of them can get a little wild. The scent does a great job lasting between washes and I actually like that. The pump itself works pretty well and it is a nice size so that you can press it without your wet hand slipping.

Great for kids

By 

from USA

Comments about Bath & Body Works Gentle Foaming Hand Soap:

I especially like the foam cleansers for children to use. They seem to use the proper amount - one squirt delivers an adequate size amount of soap, so they feel like they got a big dollop of soap & don't feel the need to pump again. It's also easier for them to lather around their hands and actually get the soap all over their hands. The only downside to that is if they lather it up while under the water, in which it just rinses off to quickly.
I love the variety of scents available.
The only downside of this product for me is that it doesn't contain only natural, safe ingredients for all of us.

Effectiveness
The foam is especially great for children, making sure they get soap all over their hands and get a lather more quickly than "regular" soap. It does a great job of cleaning grime, grease or dirt from hands as well.

Scent
B&BW offers SO many wonderful scents! And I love that they are fragrant & long lasting, but not overpowering.

Bath & Body Works Gentle Foaming Hand Soap Smells Great

By 

from USA

Comments about Bath & Body Works Gentle Foaming Hand Soap:

I love Bath & Body Works Gentle Foaming Hand Soap for many reasons. First of all, it smells great and comes in many different scents. My hands smell so good after washing them with this soap. I love how there are various scents available for each season and the holidays. Secondly, this foaming hand soap is very effective and works very well at cleaning hands. You get a lot of suds when washing your hands with this soap which makes them feel extra clean. The soap pump in the bottle also works great. I have bought other hand soap brands and I have had trouble with the pumps clogging. I have no trouble with this issue with the Bath & Body Works Gentle Foaming Hand Soap. My one negative is that I do have some trouble getting that last little bit of soap out of the bottom of the bottle. The third reason I love this hand soap is the great price. They put it on sale all the time and at the end of the seasons and holidays, they put those scents on clearance. It makes me happy to have a bottle of Bath & Body Works Gentle Foaming Hand Soap sitting on my bathroom sink at all times.

I love the Bath & Body Works Gentle Foaming Hand Soap!

By 

from USA

Comments about Bath & Body Works Gentle Foaming Hand Soap:

Very nicely packaged, with appealing labels and colors. It also has a small footprint so that your sink or countertop is not completely taken over by the bottle of soap.

The soap has a nice rich lather which gently cleans hands and rinses off nicely. So far I have noticed that it leaves your hands soft and faintly fragrant.

The variety of scents are fantastic... I am scent challenged, there are very few scents that can be tolerated by my nose. There are many fragrances in this line of Gentle Foaming Hand Soap that do not bother me. (Yea, lots of pretty scents to choose from!)

I've never had a dispenser pump fail on me (fingers crossed, since I've said it outloud!). I even reuse the pumps to make decorative soap dispensers for gifts.

Downside, they just do not last very long. Three bathrooms + three people, they are replaced quickly. But there is an upside, they are almost always on sale.
