Basil is perhaps my new favourite scent from Mrs Meyers. It totally blew my expectations away. It doesn't smell of herbs at all. It's smells of florals with and a mild undertone of grass/greens (in a good way). The overall scent is fantastic. As with all their handwashes, it's also very moisturizing. Probably one of the more moisturizing hand soaps on iHerb!
Refreshing light and gentle smell. Texture is a bit on the thick side but it feels really nice and lather very well. You need to carefully rinse as it tends to remain between your fingers if you don't. Leaves a nice and not too overpowering smell after use that can please any gender. It doesn't dry out the skin but washes very well. Removes cooking smell from your hands too. A great hand soap which is also suitable for very sensitive and/or dry skin.
I love this beautiful fragrant scent! It is indulgent smelling but not overpowering. I have the lemon verbena scent as well and love that in my kitchen and I keep this basil scent in my bathroom for quick wash-ups. I appreciate how Mrs. Meyers brand is always top notch quality. Does a fine job of getting hands clean and moisturized and smelling great! My hands are quite dry, this hand wash is just what I've been looking for. Love the basil scent so much! Will definitely try other scents. Scent is wonderful. Texture is gel like and dispenser easy to use. I use it in the kitchen as basil is also an insect repellent.
I decided to try this out after reading rave reviews on Mrs Meyer's product scents. We were in a pandemic, I was washing my hands a lot, and wanted a little luxury. It's...fine, I guess? The scent is pleasant and not too strong, but I've enjoyed other hand wash scents more (Living Clean is nice). It didn't dessicate my hands, but it wasn't my most moisturizing handwash either. Putting Dove body wash in a nice bottle has worked just as well for me.
