Carex have recently released a new range of hand care products that are antibacterial to help us keep our hands super clean, but also healthy at the same time. I have used Carex hand soaps for years, and they are always bringing out so many fun fragrances, so I knew I would be able to rely on these fabulous new products.
The Carex Derma Care Hand Cream + Anti-Bac* (£3.49 for 75ml) is a hand cream with a difference! This tube contains a moisturiser that is formulated for daily use and helps to combat dryness on the hands from frequent hand washing and the use of hand sanitiser. This is a quick-absorbing non-greasy hand cream, so you can get on with your day without waiting for it to dry and without any left over greasy residue. I think it is genius that they have included anti-bacterial properties to this hand cream as then you're not having to apply hand sanitiser immediately after applying hand cream - who doesn't love a multi-use product! The product does have a slight scent to it, but a really fresh, creamy one, just like the Carex Moisture Hand Wash does, which I love, as it is not too overpowering, but it is always nice to have a little fragrance with a hand cream in my opinion.
I included the Carex Love Hearts Cleansing Gel in my Valentine's/Galentine's Gift Guide and I have almost used a quarter of it already, as I keep it on my desk at work and it is such a good hand sanitiser as it doesn't dry out my skin, which a lot of others tend to do. The Carex Moisture Hand Sanitiser Gel* (£3.50 for 300ml) is a great alternative if you don't want such a sweet smelling hand gel. It has a beautifully fresh and creamy scent to it and contains 70% alcohol, to kill 99.9% of bacteria and germs on the hands. Yet, it is fast-absorbing and not at all drying on the skin, as I just mentioned with the Love Hearts version. I often keep a small bottle of hand gel in my car, but I get through it so quickly, so I have taken to refilling it with one of these larger bottles as it works out much more cost-effective and I don't always have to keep remembering to pick up one of the smaller ones when I go to the shops.
Sometimes, both adults and children don't like the feel of hand sanitising gels, and so the Carex Antibacterial Hand Sanitiser Spray* (£3.49 for 100ml) is an excellent alternative. Just like the original Hand Sanitiser Gel, the Spray protects the hands against 99.9% of bacteria and germs, and it is super fast drying, and so once again, you can go ahead and do what you need to do without hanging around waiting for it to dry. It is a handbag-friendly size and so is great for when you are out and about, and you literally just spray it on to the hands and rub them together to keep them protected without them drying out. However, this genius spray can also be used on surfaces - whether that be kitchen surfaces, in the bathroom, the car or when you are away from home and want to sanitise a public toilet for example. I definitely recommend picking one of these up, even if it is just to keep in your car for on the go.
