Frugal Friday – J. R. Watkins Hand Soap

My good buddy Marcia from Beauty Info Zone has a Frugal Friday post for you lovelies today. Take it away Marcia!

For Frugal Friday I’m turning to liquid hand soaps. I know the truly frugal thing to do would be to use a bar of soap when washing my hands but what fun is that?  I’ve been spoiled by delicious smelling hand washes and that’s what I keep in my bathroom. My favorites lately are Liquid Hand Soaps by J.R. Watkins. I buy them at Ulta where they sell for $4.99 but with either a coupon or a buy 2/get one free special I never have paid full price. I do notice though that on the J.R. Watkins website they retail for $7.49 so I’m wondering if the price has changed (I sure hope not).

J.R. Watkins brand is a terrific brand that is cruelty free and natural.  So many of their products are outstanding. I’ve turned my nail tech into a groupie for their cuticle cream. The Liquid Hand Soap is made of premium natural ingredients and essential oils. It comes in 5 fragrances. I adore the orange one, my latest buy. It also comes in lemon, aloe and green tea, grapefruit, and lavender.

What I like about their liquid hand wash is the gentle cleansing that leaves no residue. I wash my hands a LOT and this doesn’t dry them out. It rinses clean unlike some others I’ve tried from the drugstore. A bottle lasts me about 6 weeks which is terrific considering how often it gets used. The vintage looking label on the bottle is nice to keep in my bathroom and looks more luxurious than its price.

My Frugal Friday buy from J.R. Watkins is a little luxury that I recommend.

  1. Wow that girl can write. Where did you find her? Actually I am waiting for another coupon from Ulta so I can get a few more of these. I was buying the Lemon one but I’m crazy about the Orange and want a few in the cupboard.

  2. Looks like some really good stuff!

  3. I’ve never seen it at my local Ulta. I’ll have to ask next time I’m there. Thank you Marcia and Cindy!
