I was always that friend that carried around a stock load of antibacterial hand sanitisers and wipes in my bag, pulling them out during our days out and at restaurants (often whilst being told I had germ issues). Hand sanitisers have always been part of my weekly shop so you can imagine my surprise when I went online only to find that I could not buy any because they were all "out of stock"! Luckily we are all now over the hand sanitiser (and toilet roll) panic buying moment and hand sanitisers are back in stock across the globe (yay).
My only problem with a lot of hand sanitisers on the market is that I often find myself feeling quite queasy from the strong smell of some of the more "chemical" scented hand sanitisers. As a result of this, I have tried and tested various brands and scents and have found a few that leave my hands feeling both clean and smelling wonderful.
So if like me, you love a good hand sanitiser but don't like the lingering scent of a hospital on your hands, have a read through some of my recommendations below for a lovely sensory experience filled with relaxing and delicate scents that of course still do the all important job of killing germs. With the children going back to school and people across the globe back to work, its worth finding the scents that works for you and making sure you don't forget to add it to your weekly shop.
Here are some of my favourites!
