Carex is the UK's no.1 brand for hand hygiene and their products include hand washes, hand gel, bath and shower products and handy wipes for on the go. Carex products get to work fast killing bacteria and other germs that are on our hands. Although Carex do a range of different products the products I am reviewing is from their Hand Gel range and is an antibacterial hand gel which can be used at any time, anywhere and kills 99.9% of the bacteria than can gather on your hands during the day. Although there are currently 3 different products in the hand gel range I am reviewing the sensitive version as I have sensitive skin. Hand gels can help free your hands form bacteria and germs throughout the day when you are unable to wash your hands. The gel helps to stop spreading cold and flu viruses from person to person. Although this product is not a replacement for washing your hands you can get extra protection during the day by using the hand gel to help keep bacteria away as well as using their range of hand washes. I have heard of Carex before and have used some of their hand washes before. I haven't had a very good experience with their hand washes as I find that they leave my skin feeling dry and slightly tight, how-ever I wanted to try this product to see how it affected my hands.
I actually purchased this product to keep in my bag as it's handy to use if I am out with my nephews and we go for something to eat and are unable to find anywhere to wash out hands as we can use this on our hands instead to kill any bacteria and get rid of dirt that may be lurking on our hands. This particular hand gel is suitable for people with sensitive skin like me. The hand gel claims to be quick drying and kills 99.9% of bacteria that you come across on a daily basis. The hand gel comes in a small plastic bottle which can easily fit into a bag or pocket meaning you can carry it with you all the time and just use it when you need to. The bottle is clear and you can see that the gel inside the bottle is also clear. On the front of the bottle it states that this is for sensitive skin and that it kills 99.9% of bacteria. On the back of the bottle it gives you a list of ingredients and also tells you how to you the product. This little bottle holds 50ml of the hand gel. The lid to the hand gel is clear and pulls off easily to reveal a pump top which you press down to dispense the product.

This is available to purchase from Boots and Superdrug from £1.45, how-ever boots currently have this on offer along with some of the other Carex hand gels for just £1.00 or alternatively you can you 100 advantage card points on your boots card to get this product. I think the price of the product is very reasonable.
Using the Product

Simply remove the lid from the bottle and press down on the pump. I had to do this 1-2 times when using it for the first time in order to get any of the hand gel out. One pump of hand gel is more than enough for your hands, especially children's hands. The gel was clear and seemed a little watery and it also had a distinct alcohol smell to it that a lot of hand gels have. I rubbed the hand gel all over my hands and was surprised at how quick the hand gel dried. I wouldn't smell the alcohol scent now either but instead a fresh scent which was pleasant and stayed on my hands. I often suffer from quite dry skin on my hands and I found the hand gel to be gentle on my hands and didn't cause any irritation or itchiness. Another good thing about the hand gel is that it didn't make my hands feel dry or tight either which is what I normally experience when using their hand washes. My older nephew is very fussy about smells and has a very good sense of smell. Although he wasn't too keen on using this product and disliked the smell when smelling the gel that I dispensed into his hands to clean them, he smelt them after rubbing the gel into his hands and decided that the smell was quite nice. As the hand gel comes in a small bottle it's perfect for carrying in a small bag or even a pocket which means it can be taken wherever you go. I always keep mine in my handbag just in case it's needed when we are out. The small bottle should last for 100 applications which I thought was really good.

I think this is a great product, and the small bottle means its perfect for taking everywhere you go. As the bottle is made from plastic it means that it's also very light to carry and it is also less likely to break as well. The hand gel is really easy to use and leaves hands feeling clean and fresh. It's also a great relief to know that the hand gel kills 99.9% of bacteria which helps to prevent colds and viruses from spreading. I would definitely recommend this product to others as its kind to your skin and does a great job of keeping them clean and bacteria free. In terms of value I think the product is very reasonable, especially as it's currently on offer for just £1.00. I personally think this is a must have for any handbag.
