"OH SAY IT ISN'T SO..." I HATE! HATE! HATE! THE NEW BOTTLE. SHOULD OF LEFT WELL ENOUGH ALONE ON THIS ONE MATE. NOW IT REALLY LOOKS LIKE ANY OTHER HAND SOAP ON THE SHELF. THE BOTTLE IS WHAT MADE THIS PRODUCT EVEN MORE OF A SELL FOR ME. FOR US LONG TIME USERS PLEASE, PLEASE BRING BACK THE TRIED AND TRUE BOTTLE. IT REALLY DID GO WITH THE SCENT OF THIS PRODUCT. WHEN I SAW THE OLD BOTTLE I KNEW WHAT I WAS GETTING EVERYTIME! AND I LOVED THE WAY THE OLD BOTTLE LOOKED ON MY COUNTERS. VERY DISAPPOITED. IF IT AIN'T BROKE, DON'T FIX IT!

Jergens Extra Moisturizing Hand Wash is an excellent product with a distinctive Cherry Almond scent that none of the bath and body stores can duplicate. The soap is silky and creamy, always gentle on the skin and it cleans and moisturizes effectively.

Here's my gripe, however: I would like to know why Jergens has replaced the white bottles with choice of pink, white or purple flower, with a nondescript turquoise cap and a pink and turquoise label on the front of the bottle? The solid white bottles with choice of artistic flower illustration were so classic and now I find myself looking at a bottle that I at first thought was "generic packaging" for a dollar store chain, which is the only place I can locate this otherwise outstanding hand wash aside from Drugstore.com.

For years I have avoided the Soft Soap brand and even liquid soaps by Bath & Body Works because I felt the clear plastic bottles looked too messy. After all, you don't really have to see into a hand wash bottle anyhow because you can feel when it is empty and confirm that it is when the liquid hand soap no longer dispenses! Not wanting to be limited in my hand wash choices by the garishness of hand wash packaging design and the poor ergonomics of hand wash bottles, in general, I have attempted purchase decorative hand soap dispensers at department stores only to discover that they function terribly (leaking around the cap area, not having a long enough plastic stem to reach soap or lotions at the bottom of the bottle, etc.). Consequently, in order to obtain a product that actually worked as a dispenser AND as a compliment to my household color scheme, I sought out Jergens Extra Moisturizing Hand Wash, with its fantastic Cherry Almond scent. However, after seeing the new packaging with the retro '80s turquoise and pink color scheme that clashes with everything adjacent to it, I am saddened that I didn't hang on to those little white dispensers with artistic flower rendering, having instead thrown them out without suspecting I would never see them again.

Elsewhere on Drugstore.com I have found reviews by customers who assume the flower design, presently pictured, is the correct version and the newer one is some sort of mistake. Consumers don't have to be graphic artists to realize that Jergens has taken a step backward where this particular packaging design is concerned.

My first impression of the new label was that it was an lousy knockoff of the brand as is common of dollar store products. Only after visiting the Jergens/Kao brand website did I learn that this is Jergens idea of a face lift for their entire product line! Is anyone else feeling as disappointed as I am? If so, by all means take a moment to contact Jergens through their website or telephone at 1-800-742-8798! Tell 'em you don't understand why this classic hand wash, which is so difficult to find to begin with, had to be included in their product packaging redesign with a questionable 1980s teenybopper pink and turquoise color scheme! Demand that they reissue the original design for this product on the basis that it looked better in your home and stood apart on store shelves much more distinctively than the revised packaging you will find staring back at you from your bathroom or kitchen counter if you currently purchase this product!

        Comments about Jergens Extra Moisturizing Hand Wash, 7.5 fl oz:

        This product has been around for a long time and we have grown accustomed to using it, especially in winter conditions when hands can become more tender. So many "bar soaps" seem inadequate at this time. The difficulty, however, is finding it, with stores in this area of VT/NH not stocking it, so that we were delighted to find it at Drugstore.com.

          I had never seen this Jergen's hand soap before in local stores. Read the other reviews, liked the original Jergens scent so thought I'd give it a try. I really like it. Like the cherry almond scent. Very creamy and moisturizing, not drying at all and cleans well also. I just got this 2 weeks ago and have already ordered the huge refill. The price can't be beat.

            I don't like this product. It's not awful, it works but the smell reminds me of the stuff they use in public restrooms. I wonder if it is the same product. I don't want to smell like a public restroom at home. I might buy this again because of the price but probably not. It's cheap and it's soap but it smells pretty rotten.

              I love this product. The smell is just like the Jergens lotion that came in the little glass bottles when I was a kid. I wish it were easier to find. I contacted the manufacturer and they said because it was a poor seller it had limited availability. Perhaps if it were available in stores, more people would purchase it!!

                I have been using Jergens products for a long time. You can trust the name. Jergens Liquid hand soap and refill sizes are just perfect to have in our home. Fresh..soft..and clean...that's how you feel when you use this soap. Love the pump dispenser too.
