Try it Tuesday...Dawn PLUS Hand Renewal

I love this dish soap! I found it as usual at Target. I bought it at the same time that I bought the Dial Yogurt Foaming hand soap. Again, my friend Pam brought it to my attention.

It's a bit pricey at about $3.64 for a 22 ounce bottle, but it will go on sale like most products do.

This is what the website says about Dawn PLUS Hand Renewal:

With new Dawn PLUS Hand Renewal, you can transform the look and feel of your hands in just five dish washes. Side by side comparisons show that within five uses of Dawn PLUS Hand Renewal, skin feels softer and more beautiful.

Don't just use a dish soap that's mild on your skin-try one that actually improves the look and feel of it! Dawn PLUS Hand Renewal is great for hand care and you'll still get the excellent grease fighting power you've come to trust with Dawn.

Dawn PLUS Hand Renewal comes in these scents:

-Pomegranate and Splash with Vitamin E
-Lavender and Silk with Vitamin E
-Aloe Vera Scent

I bought the Lavender and Silk after a tough choice between that and the pomegranate. Both smelled refreshing and pleasant.

Now folks...I'm the kind of person that washes her hands a zillion times a day. That's how I roll. I don't like dirt or germs. No, I'm not obsessive compulsive or anything. I just like to feel clean. Since I have a one year old, I also change lots of poopies during the day. Yes, I like to wash my hands in the bathroom sink using the Dial Yogurt Foaming Soap (that I recently reviewed) or Bath and Body Works soaps, but I also have a pump built in my sink in the kitchen. If I need to wash my hands, I frequent the kitchen sink plenty of times during the day.

Because I'm a crazy hand washer, I get dry dry skin. Especially in the winter, but they are still dry throughout the year. So when I saw the Hand Renewal soap and it said I should have smooth skin in 5 days, I thought I'd try it.

It actually works! My hands are nice and soft. Of course we already knew that Dawn cleans dishes well. And now there are no worries about having dry itchy hands due to frequent hand washing or cleaning of dishes. I clean plenty of pots and pans, so I think I'll keep using this dish soap. I'll report back in the winter to let you know if it's still keeping my hands soft.

As you can see from the photo above, there is a sweepstakes you can enter at the Dawn website. Sign up and you might win some jewelry or atleast a free bottle of Dawn PLUS Hand Renewal dish detergent. Here is the link to sign up for the sweepstakes.

The Dawn website also has a link for a $1 off coupon for the dish detergent, but you have to give your address. It's from the Home Made Simple website. I get their newsletters monthly. At the Home Made Simple website, you can sign up for $27 worth of coupons in booklet form. It will include the $1 off for the Dawn PLUS Renewal. Here is the link for the coupons: Home Made Simple . And yes it's free. I enjoy the newsletter because they have great tips and coupons as well as some freebies once in a while.

Next week I'll be reviewing the new 100 calorie pack of Oreo Snack Cakes that I found at Meijer. I knew they would come out with this sooner or later!

*EDIT* It is now winter...January 3rd to be exact, and I thought I'd weigh in on how well I think the Dawn Hand Renewal is treating my hands. Ok, I can't say I use the Dawn to clean dishes after every meal, but I use it everyday atleast. Sometimes to wash my hands and sometimes to clean dishes individually. Not a sink full of dishes. Anyway, usually at this time of the winter season, my hands are so dry and cracked. Sometimes they bleed. Not this year so far. They aren't super soft, but they are much better than usual. I still need to put lotion on my hands, but not every day like last winter. So I'd say that Dawn Hand Renewal is doing a good job of softening my skin. I bet if I used it more, it would work even better. Did anyone else find the same results?

I am very interested on how it works during the dry winter months because that is when I have problems with dry hands. So I may just use it during the winter months if it is still working well on your hands since I am cheap. I usually buy a big huge bottle at Sam's Club.

Oh, that is so awesome! I swear I wash my hands 10,000 times a day. It's about time someone came up with a product like this. I can't wait to try it!

We will have to stay tuned to see if it works, but looks like it might be worth a try! :)

My wife has been using this product, Dawn Plus "Hand renewal". It has dried out her hands and even to the point that they are cracking. Plus if you were to look at what is in this product you should not even be putting it on your hands. Who ever these people are that are putting all this stuff about how wonderful the product is must be using something besides the Dawn Plus. My wife is putting the rest in the trash and out the the curb tommorow.

I consider my skin to be sensitive, but this product doesn't hurt them at all. I think some people must have allergies or some other skin condition if the Dawn Hand Renewal is affecting the skin.

I'm not sure what damaging ingredients Annonymous is talking about, but I think the dish soap is the same as any other product used for the same purpose.

It's the end of October now and I'm still using the dish soap. The temps outside have been chilly and I still have nice soft hands. I can't wait to see if it still works in the middle of winter!
