Last winter we got struck down with a seemingly endless run of colds, tummy bugs and even the flu. Frustrating because as a family of five if one of us gets ill we usually all get ill too. Plans had to be changed, and looking after my poorly family was hard work. So, despite a general attitude that germs are good for developing the immune system, I started using antibacterial hand gel when we were out and about and couldn’t wash our hands. I also made hand washing at home more of a priority, all of which did seem to result in fewer illnesses.
However hand gels and regular hand washes are drying for the skin so I also had to in hand cream. Carex must have also noticed this problem because they have brought out a range of antibacterial hand creams. Moisturising whilst also getting rid of unwanted bacteria they strike the perfect balance between protection and pampering. They sent me the two varieties, nourish and protect with extra vitamin E and hydrate and protect with aloe vera, to test.
I’ve found the creams really useful. They’re handbag sized so I always have one with me when I need it. They’re not greasy, absorb easily and smell nice, which is what I’m looking for in a hand cream.
Win one of three sets of both hand creams:
