The Forgotten Basic

Cuticura Anti Bacterial Hand Gel

Tip out the contents of many a female's bag and what will you more than likely find hidden among countless lipsticks, old train tickets and other girlie bits and bobs?
Anti bacterial hand gel that's what!

We never really speak about hand cleansing gels as frankly they are dull and not at all glamorous but we'd only be lying to ourselves if we didn't admit that they are a daily staple for most of us!
I normally use Carex as it is readily available in the supermarket as well as being present in Boots, Superdrug  et all but the truth is I don't really care for the scent of any of the variations - they are all a little too alcohol based for my taste.

If like myself you prefer a fruity and dare I say it more lady like option without paying absurd amounts to purchase a few imported Bath and Body Works Hand Sanitizers then you may want to try Cuticura's Anti Bacterial Hand Gel. This fast acting hand gel requires no water yet kills 99.9% of bacteria on your hands all the while leaving behind a super feminine passion flower and mango scent - it reminds me a little of Escada's fruity type scents that they are so well known for. The best part is that a great travel friendly bottle (100ml) only costs £1.49!

  1. I like The Body Shop's hand gels x

  2. I usually hate having to use hand gel because of the nasty smell. (maybe the alcohol smell brings up less than flattering memories from uni I don't know) I'd love to find one that really does smell yummy, especially for the upcoming festival season where you don't know where anyone's been!
