Redundant product

Thursday, 28 May 2015

The germaphobe in me much prefers a hand wash that claims to kill 99.9% of all bacteria. However, quite predictably those products leave me with dry, tight skin on my hands and inevitably painful hangnails.
Thinking about it, this product would be more caring towards my hands – I gave it a try. Even though the formula looks creamy, it isn’t moisturizing at all. My hands were as dry and tight as they were previously (Luckily, I also purchased the hand cream).
The bottle is also quite flimsily designed. The pump especially seemed quite flimsy and the bottle kept toppling over every time I tried to use it. This meant that even the product design was redundant as I landed up transferring the contents to my glass dispenser instead.
One upside: the delicate fragrance of this product makes washing your hands a lot more pleasant than when I use the disinfectant hand wash. But you can get that fragrance from the cream instead. My recommendation: find a good creamy hand wash that disinfects and if you love the fragrance, get the hand cream.
