The 10 Best Luxury Hand Soaps

The formulas that won't leave your hands dry and sore.


Hand wash probably doesn’t rank high on your list of pulse-raising beauty purchases – or at least, it didn’t before 2020 arrived. Now, a chic bottle of liquid soap makes the endless hand-washing cycle a little less tedious, and even a touch luxurious.The best luxury hand soaps do more than simply cleanse, too. Deliciously scented, they’ll add a sense of ritual to that 17th turn of the taps. And of course, the best-looking bottles are a status-symbol sink accessory (especially if they come with sustainable credentials to boot).


Here, see the Bazaar  verdict on the top luxury hand soaps to place in your home. They make a thoughtful gift in these trying times, too.

Ouai Hand Wash

Trust Ouai to breathe new life into the hand-wash category. Part of the brand’s new bodycare line, this weighty (and chic) bottle contains a rich, low-foaming liquid soap that leaves hands feeling refreshed and replenished. The meadow-fresh Dean St fragrance is a fan favourite for good reason, and the biodegradable exfoliating particles only enhance the spa-like luxury.  The bottle is recyclable – but why throw it away when you can keep it topped up with the brand’s eco refills?
