Bath & Body Works Hand Sanitizers were high on my list when I visited New York earlier this year. As previously mentioned I bought the Mahogany Teakwood candle (which I absolutely love) and I also picked up 5 hand sanitizers after hearing nothing but good things. After picking out the candle I had to pick not 1, not 2, but 5 hand gels as it was 5 for $5 (and at $1.75 each this was an offer I couldn't say no to). This was not easy an easy task.
So, I started to smell each one and they quickly merged into one scent - alcohol, and I couldn't tell the difference. (I have since learnt that it is best to try them out on your hands as you can smell the product best this way). So, I based my decision on the names and went for Pacific Cool Breeze (fresh and manly), Stress Relief (eucalyptus spearmint), Caribbean Escape (coconut), Island Nectar (sweet, mandarin) and Aqua Blossom (clean and fresh). I have yet to get through them all, but my favourites so far are definitely Island Nectar and Aqua Blossom <3. They contain 68% alcohol and Tahitian palm milk which helps to keep your hands nice and soft and are therefore not drying in the slightest.
Although they are small, they do last you a long time as you only need a small amount. If you are not able to visit the US, there are some sellers on E-bay that stock them. You seem to pay around £2.30 which I don't think is too bad if you are desperate to get your hands on some!
What is your favourite hand sanitizer?
