Cuticura Hand Hygiene Gel: Limited Edition Lemon Sherbert

As someone that used to spend their summers in a muddy field clutching a can of warm cider, hygiene gel was a massive part of my repertoire. When there’s no water in sight, you have no choice but to invest in a little bottle of anti-bacterial gel that will have your hands free from germs and feeling fresh. Like dry shampoo before it, the humble bottle of hand gel has evolved from a festival-only must-have, to a city lifestyle essential. Cuticura are the kings of this market, launching the first gel many moons ago, and have injected a little fun into their range with these Primark exclusive sweetie-inspired hand gels.

Available in Lemon Sherbet and Sugar Candy variants, these two cute bottles of gel are supposed to offer a more delicate and less offensive scent when compared to Cuticura’s original variety. Although you can definitely smell the lemony scent and sugary candy notes, fundamentally these are still alcohol-based gels that kill bacteria by flooding it. You still get a mighty whiff of the alcohol base when you use it, but the scent it leaves behind is slightly sweeter.

Hand gels are great to use in the winter months, when germs are passed around like TicTacs (particularly on trains and tubes if you’re a Londoner,) as they’re able to kill bacteria upon contact. If you’re prone to colds and coughs, then using these before you eat or after you’ve been on public transport can make a huge difference. However, when overused they can dry hands and leave them feeling crusty, so it’s essential to counteract their effect with a great hand cream.

These are much more fun than a boring transparent bottle and are a bargain at only £1.00 each, so why not pick them up and pop in your handbag to ensure you’re germ-free and protected against incoming colds this winter. Sherbert Lemons not included.

These are both exclusively available in Primark priced £1.00 each.

    I always carry anti-bacterial gel when I go out. These look good, I wish they'd sell them online though. I can't bring myself to brave the weekend Primark queues just for a hand gel haha.
