One product I always have in my handbag is hand sanitizer, working in a school I know I always need to keep my hands clean to make sure I don't get poorly. I have been on the hunt for good hand gels that won't dry out my hands as I have quite dry hands already. These are my top three picks and I have one in each of my handbags so I always have one on hand.
Soap and Glory have two hand gels in their most popular fragrances, Sugar Crush and also Original Pink which is the one that I currently have. I have been through a few of the Hand Maid Antibacterial Hand Cleansing Gels in the past couple of years and it is often on three for two at Boots. This is one of the least drying hand gels that I have tried which is why I love it so much, especially in the winter months. This is quick drying on the nails and I like to pair it with the Hand Food hand cream from Soap and Glory, I usually have a mini size of this in my handbag too to keep my hands super hydrated! This retails for £2.50 at Boots - HERE.
Bath and Body Works Pocket Bacs can be a little hard to find if you don't live in the USA, eBay is probably your best bet! I have a ridiculous amount of these in my collection as I seriously stocked up before Christmas so I have more than enough hand gel for 2017! These have such a strong scent which lingers on the skin for hours which I personally am obsessed with but I know many wouldn't like this. You can also get cute little holders for these, I have a quilted black one on my handbag with Merry Berry Kiss in currently. With so many different scents around each season, you are bound to find one that you will love.
The Merci Handy Cleansing Hand Gels are new to me and I knew I wanted to try out the black vanilla scent as Vanilla is one of my favourite scents. These hand gels are available at Topshop, Selfridges and Fenwick. I have been really impressed with this hand gel as it actually kept my hands feeling soft from the Vitamin E included in the gel. What is great about this hand gel is that it is microbead-free! This has a lovely light scent of vanilla which does linger on the hands much like the others and I love the coolness you get with this one.
What is great about each of these is that they are on the smaller side so they don't take much much room in your handbag, I have a really small handbag (I can't even fit a wallet in my handbag) so these are great. If I had to pick a favourite, I would probably have to go with the Bath and Body Works Pocket Bacs as they have such a great range of scents which do linger on the hands for hours after application.
