Lately my childrens school has been taking more precautions due to the Swine Flu, they were providing hand gel in each classroom for the children to wash their hands on a regular basis, however this soon changed when all the hand soap ran out they didn't bother to replace it, so all te children started to bring in small bottles of hand gel themselves.
My daughter mentioned this to me and asked if I would get her some, so I went to Boots and found it was selling at £1.28 for a 100ml bottle, there are larger bottles of this handwash available but we choose the smaller one as it would be easier to carry around, the bottle is see through with a blue flip top lid, there is a blue and clear label on the front, with Cutrica for healthy hands wrote in white lettering across the top of the label, below this it says Original Hand Wash Hygiene Gel in blue lettering, Also on the label it says that this handwash kills 99.99% of bacteria and it is an Antibacterial handwash. At the bottom of the label it gives a list of who and what this handwash is suitable for, it is suitable for the family, public toilets, eating out and on the go.
This handwash is suitable for use pretty much anywere, where soap and water are not available, so therefore it was perfect for my kids to use in school, The liquid is clear and quite watery, it smells of cucumber and the smell is quite strong although after about ten minutes after use the smell disappears. I used the handwash before the kids and only a small amount of the liquid is needed, rub into hands until they feel dry, the liquid dries into the skin quite quickly and doesn't leave hands feeling sticky, the only one complaint I have is the smell, I dont really like cucumber, although the kids dont seem to mind the smell.
It is good to know that my kids can clean their hands as and when they need too, my daughter has had this handwash for about two weeks now and she is quarter of the way through the bottle, I would imagine she probably shares it with her friends and she also would probably use more than required, but Iexpect the handwash to last for at least another four weeks or so, however for an adult using the handwash they would probably get longer use from it. I should also mention that while using this handwash my daughter hasn't hand any problems with her skin, (touching wood)
