I know this is going to seem a bit like an odd post, but you have to understand that hand sanitiser is a major part of my life. I'm a bit of a germaphobe, and the thought of leaving home without hand sanitiser is actually more daunting to me than leaving home without my phone.
It's been about a year now since I discovered Crabtree & Evelyn's hand sanitisers through the Enabler, and I haven't looked back since. What's so special about them? Firstly, they come in almost every scent from the ranges that they carry, and secondly, they are moisturising!
Granted, they run towards what seems like an obscene amount to pay for such a product at RM25 each, but they are truly spectacular and you need a very tiny amount for effective cleaning.
Truly, one of these lasts me a minimum of 4 months and that's with use multiple times per day (between 6-10 depending on whether the situation calls for wet wipes of hand sanitiser).
I honestly don't think I'm ever going back to Dettol or Antabax where hand sanitiser is concerned because they truly do have the tendency to dry your skin out. This doesn't. Your hands feel clean and moisturised, which they bloody well better be when you're using a RM25 bottle of hand sanitiser. These run at around RM20 in the UK, so the difference isn't drastic enough to be unjustifiable in my books. I've been loving these for a good long while, and that doesn't seem like it will change anytime soon.
As a reference of time, when these pictures were taken, I was at the dregs of my Pomegranate sanitiser, and I threw it out and began using Gardener's. I'm still using it with about 1/3 of the bottle left. If that doesn't speak volumes, I don't know what does. It also helps that it dries very quickly and doesn't leave a sticky residue at all. However, I wouldn't recommend the Gardener's variety purely because it doesn't smell as pleasant as the rest do. The rest are truly lovely and I'm definitely eyeing their La Source version once I'm out of Garderner's. Yes, my Lavender backup is still there. But I need a backup once that goes into commission, don't I?
I have to say this: Hand sanitiser has to be one of the best inventions ever! EVER! And these are right up there with the absolute best!
