Todays letter is H- Hand Gel
The wonderful guys at Cussons have sent me a bottle of their new Cleanse And Protect Hand Gel from the new Mum & Me range.
Now, I am very experienced with hand sanitizers due to working in health care for a good few years. I am almost a ‘Hand Sanitizer Expert’ so to speak.
I always have a bottle of hand sanitizer attached to my hand bag. I even have a cool little clip that attaches the bottle to my bag so that it is never lost! (Hand gel nerd alert!!) So, I know what I am looking for when it comes to a good hand gel.
I have used expensive brands and cheap brands in the past. They all do the same essential thing, kill germs. Some smell nice, and some smell like an explosion at the Vodka factory. Some sting when they find a teeny weeny cut in your hand and some treat your skin with care. See, I told you I was an expert 🙂
The new Cussons, Mum & Me Hand Gel is lovely. It has that classic alcohol smell when first put onto your hands but after a second or two, when rubbed in, it has a delightful smell. A very clean, slight perfumed scent. Just like a classic hand cream would, but you have the added bonus that you know it has killed 99.9% of bacteria. It rubs into your skin and dries very quickly, which is great when you need your hands clean and fresh quickly.
Many hand gels can leave your skin feeling very dry after use, but the Cussons Cleanse And Protect Hand Gel does not dry out your hands at all and will leave your hands still feeling soft and moisturised, even after frequent use.
The hand gel come in a nice small bottle, that fits perfectly into any hand bag, or changing bag. It is great to ensure that you do not spread germs when feeding your small one, having just changed a nappy, or even just when out and about.
All in all, this is a lovely hand cleanser that leaves your skin smelling lovely and sweet and your hands still feeling soft. Deffo an essential for any new mum. A product that will remain in my hand bag for some time.
