Try it Tuesday......Dial Yogurt Vanilla Honey Foaming Hand Wash


Dial Yogurt Vanilla Honey Foaming Hand Wash vs. Any Bath & Body Works Foaming Hand Wash.

The war is on! And I never would have thought any other store could compete with my favorite Bath & Body Works hand soaps! But Dial Yogurt is running a very close second to Bath & Body works. We are talking Michael Phelps 1/100th of a second close.

I have to say I'm a big fan of foaming hand wash because it's good to the last drop. I like more bang for my buck. I am never out of Bath & Body Works foaming soaps in my own bathroom. I have 2 sinks and each has their own bottle of B&BW foaming wash. Now the kids bathroom is a different story. They have whatever brand I pick up at Target or any grocery store. Sorry kids, but you waste too much soap.

I love Bath & Body Works because the fragrances are so yummy. Plain and simple...that's why I buy them -They smell fabulous. I will stay loyal to their soaps, but I have found one who is also yummy to smell and feels sooooo soft on my hands.

The Yogurt in the soap is actually yogurt proteins. I have no idea what yogurt is supposed to do for my skin, but I know that I love this soap! The Vanilla Honey is a great smell that rivals the Warm Vanilla Sugar scent at Bath & Body Works. I do have to say that the Dial soap is much creamier if that is the right word. It has a softer feeling to me. Even Brycen used it and came looking for me to tell me he thought it smelled really good. Normally, he could care less about soap. I have to force him to use it on his stinky feet some times. What kind of kid wears socks all summer long?! :)

Because the new Dial Yogurt Foaming Hand Wash is much cheaper than the Bath & Body Works, I just might buy the kids that brand (plus the Method brand that has some nice scents) from now on so I can still enjoy it plus not worry so much about them wasting it. Also I won't have to run out and get B&BW soap right when I finish a bottle in my own bathroom. I definitely think I can learn to live with the Dial Yogurt soap for a time.

The only thing that I don't like about the new Dial Yogurt foaming soap, is the bottle. I like how Bath & Body Works has a nice picture of a flower or whatever scent is in the bottle. But I especially like that their logo is small and not obtrusive (is that the word to use?...and to think I loved English class growing up!). Dial is just the opposite. The big 'ol lettering stands right out and takes up a chunk of the bottle. No subtlety there that's for sure. The bottle is nicely shaped, but the lettering ruins it. Go ahead, compare the pictures I have above. Can win 'em all I guess.

I found this soap at Target for about $2.70. I haven't tried the Aloe Vera scent. I really like the Vanilla Honey, so I bet I will buy that one again instead of the Aloe Vera. My friend Pam, however, is currently using the Aloe Vera hand soap (not foaming). I guess she likes it. She was the one who recommended the Yogurt soap when we were in Target together. I had never heard of Yogurt in my soap! I'm glad she got me to try it (Thanks Pam!) Weee.

P.S....Dial also makes the yogurt scents in a body wash. Wonder if it's as creamy? And another thing about the Dial yogurt soap....why only 2 scents? Come on people....play around with a few more.

I am always trying to find that perfect soap. I like the foaming ones better too. I'm excited to try the Dial one now! As always, you rock Leanne!

Nice thorough evaluation. I'll be trying these for sure. Love the price compared to B&BW!
Thanks again (and thanks to Pam too I guess) for the tip!

Great post! Did you think about buying one of those decorative foaming soap dispensers? That way you could use the soap and it will look pretty too:) Just a thought...

Leanne said...

I didn't know they made decorative foaming dispensers! I've seen regluar ones, but not foaming. I haven't looked around tho. Where can I find one of those Jenn?

The more we all use this soap, the more we all like it. I wonder if they will come out with a refill bottle. Then I'd really love it!

Leanne said...

P.S...now I've tried the Aloe Vera scent and I just don't like it as much. It doesn't have the same quality. If Dial really wants to win my vote, they need to make new scents that are just as nice as Bath and Body Works. Otherwise, the one scent will get old and boring really fast.

Agree, bottle, while eyecatching in the store is not attractive in the home .... but THE LABEL IS REMOVEABLE.It comes off in one easy layer like unwrapping a present. Underneath bottle is translucent plastic, anonymous, high tech, innocuous.

Now if I can only locate a large refill instead of having to buy a new pump each time. I just wrote to the Dial corporation - please do the same!
