Ever since Alexander's arrival 2.5 years ago, hand washing became a bit of an obsession (thanks to all the poo-cleaning, drool-wiping, germs ridding associated with kids). Al-cheapo hand washes from the supermarket no longer cut it as they left my hands dry and cracked so I turned to other alternatives that are kinder and gentler to the skin. Washing my hands now feels like a real treat. Here are five of my favourites...
Musq Hand Wash Lemon Myrtle and Mandarin - A hand wash without any nasty chemicals that is good for my skin and our planet. The uplifting combination lemon myrtle and mandarin, enriched with the goodness of eucalyptus, tea tree and rosewood makes this hand wash an absolute treat for the senses.
Mor Essentials Hand and Body Wash Sugar Rose - A combination of soft sugary rose and tropical fruits, this scrumptious hand wash is hydrating and soothing even for irritated skin. Use together with the Hand and Body lotion to layer on that delicious scent.
Peppermint Grove Lemongrass and Lime Hand Wash - If scents can take you places, this hand wash transports me to an exclusive lush tropical paradise. It smells delightful and looks elegant. I'm always looking for an excuse to wash my hands when this is on my bathroom sink.
Crabtree and Evelyn La Source conditioning Hand Wash - I've always been a fan of Crabtree and Evelyn's divine concoctions of lotions and potions. Their La Source hand wash is no exception; it is rich lathering and pH balanced. I love that it is so luxurious to use and smells wonderfully reminiscent of crisp clean sea air.
