Molton Brown Rhubarb & Rose Hand Wash, £16
and Replenishing Hand Cream, £10
Having recently redecorated our downstairs cloakroom with a clean and simple white, silver and black colour scheme, we decided the room needed a touch of something bright and cheerful to give it a little something else. I thought an injection of either orange or bright pink would be the answer and accessoried accordingly with a couple of hand towels, my favourite cat trio (a special present from my mum years ago) and my ever present candles, again I do admit it's more than just an obsession!!!
The final touch came in the form of these beautiful new toiletries from Molton Brown. I've always been a big fan of their products and rate a hotel very highly if they supply Molton Brown bathroom products in their rooms, the height of true luxury. It was only natural to give my beautiful newly decorated cloakroom the products it deserved and the new Rhubarb & Rose hand care collection fitted the bill perfectly. Not only were they the perfect colour the smell is amazing. You really get the aroma of the rhubarb with just a slight hint of rose, a stunning combination evoking summer scents of rhubarb crumbles and fresh cut roses. My son said it reminded him of Rhubarb and Custard sweets, one of his favourites, so a big hit with him too, just what a mechanic needs to wash his hand at the end of a busy day!
The lovely soap cleanses without drying your hands and leaves the bathroom smelling fresh and fruity. Follow this with the hand cream and your hands feel beautifully moisturised, a must if you are constantly washing and drying them. There is also an Enriching Hand Lotion available in this collection but at £20 it's a little expensive, although you could purchase a gift set of all three for £40 here, a possible gift idea for Mother's Day.
I absolutely love the look, smell and quality of these products and will definitely be re-purchasing in the future, the hand wash bottle contains 300ml so this may not be for some time yet, however, the hand cream is disappearing more quickly as I can't resist using it every time I pop in the loo.
