Admittedly, our bathroom sinks aren't always the most beautiful spots in our homes. Between excess squirts of toothpaste and remnants of skincare products that inevitably end up on the countertop, it's no wonder it's one of the more difficult locations to keep looking luxe. Thankfully, there's one easy fix that adds an instant touch of charm to the facade of your faucet despite it all—a pretty hand soap.
With beautiful glass bottles, chic labeling, and, most important, olfactory delights (like lemongrass, fig, sweet orange, lavender, and the Mediterranean sea), hand soap offers an easy, not to mention an affordable way to update your bathroom.
On a practical note, with all of the attention on natural and non-toxic ingredients in our skincare and beauty products, the Environmental Working Group recommends avoiding triclosan and triclocarban when choosing a soap. Here are our 15 hand soap picks of the moment.
If you prefer a fresh-scented, refreshing soap, you can't go wrong with L'Occitane's verbena. The clean and simple bottle adds a touch of French elegance to any bathroom.
The simple, sketched bottle would be perfect in an all-white, farmhouse-style bathroom.
