Squeaky Clean: Stock Up On These Hand Washes & Sanitisers With 70% Alcohol

What Makes It Awesome

Here’s 2 things I’ve memorised during this quarantine - wash your hands constantly for at least 20 seconds and always keep a hand sanitiser with you. However, this (necessary) and repeated cleansing dried out my skin and I just don’t like the cycle of applying sanitiser then hand cream and then repeat all day long. 

I went looking for a more moisturising way of keeping my hands clean and that’s where Oxyglow Cosmetics comes in. They have hand washes scented with lemon and aloe vera with tea tree oil in both of them so my hands didn’t look scaly after use. It also helped that all the ingredients they use are herbal. I also picked up a hand sanitiser with 70% alcohol in it (WHO recommends a minimum of 60%) and I liked how it didn’t have an overwhelming alcohol smell, and the bottles weren’t the small plastic ones so it’s also less wasteful and lasted longer.

They’re also pretty affordable which is another thing I liked about them since we’ll all be going through TONS of soap and sanitiser in the next few months. 

Price: INR 180 for two 500ml hand washes / INR 200 for two 200ml hand sanitisers

Pro-Tip

If you’ve got massively dry hands like mine, pick the aloe vera hand wash over the lemon one because it’s gentler and more moisturising.
