"Germs.. No room at the inn"
This is a product which I go through gallons of!
I know you are thinking here is another germ obsessed man with mild ocd and I have to admit to an extent, you are correct but only in certain scenarios - My main area of distress is when I am at work.
I work in a large call centre with thousands of other people. There is dirt in this building. A lot of it.
Bathrooms especially are an issue for me; I wash my hands twice before I leave them and when I get back to my desk, I reach for the Purell every single time. It is also handy if you sneeze and have to get the germs off your hands.
This is a pretty obvious one, it smells like alcohol and clean - If you close your eyes and imagine a hospital ward a good 20 years ago, you will be pretty much there, It's not over-powering though so you will not irritate people around you, my work have supplied a hand foam previously and every time I used it, people would complain and say it was stinking, to which I would reply "It's clean :)"
You don't have to use a lot of this product, when you press the pump at the top of the bottle, it tries to be very generous which is lovely however if you use too much, you have to rub your hands for much longer and drips will fall on your lap - when I first got the bottle, I was covered in it (the floor got a good dose as well, which I feel it needed anyway).
So, back to what I was saying! You only need a small amount - rub it in nicely trying to cover as much of your hands as possible - it dries very quickly and leaves your hands feeling lovely and moisturised. Vitamin E is also an active ingredient which I'm sure helps with the making your hands feel lovely after every use.
This is nothing to write home about, it is a standard clear plastic bottle with a white screw pump on the lid. If you don't mind getting in a mess, the pump can be pressed down and screwed to the left to lock the bottle up at the end of each day - I do not do this as I don't see the point.
Pay attention class, as this is rocket science stuff - The instructions on the back of the bottle:
"Apply approximately 3ml of Purell in the palm of your hands and rub until fully evaporated (circa 30 seconds), without forgetting finger nails, between fingers, thumbs and wrists" so technical! Just what I would have expected without even reading it, so it really is a no brainer to use!
The ingredients are pretty much exactly what you would expect from a hand sanitizer:
Water (Aqua), Glycerin, Isopropyl Myristate, Propylene Glycol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Aminomethyl Propanol, Carbomer
Other than Water, I have no idea what any of the above is, but if you have any allergies it's probably best that you do your own research on it before using it.
Where can I get some?
Although the 350ml bottle is apparently only available through wholesale purchase, I have found a link for you lovely people to use:
Google seach for "Medisave" and search for "Purell" (I originally had a link for you but Dooyoo said it wasn't valid to have such a long single word in the review, sorry!)
(It's only £3.20 and will last for months)
I highly recommend this stuff. 5/5 for me, and I will be using for years to come! If you like to make sure your hands are clean, this could be the stuff for you!
