In need of soft but clean hands??

May 21, 2012

I think we live in the society now where we like to look after ourselves, whether this be in body or mind. Something equally important is cleanliness, in our homes, whilst out and about and to prevent the risk of infection.

Did you know that the skin experts over at Vaseline have combined to key features of everyday essentials into one fabulous tube? Introducing Vaseline 2-in-1 Hand Cream + Anti-Bac.

Containing five essential moisturisers:

  • Glycerin
  • Potassium Lacate
  • Sodium PCA
  • Urea
  • Collagen Amino acids

Which will aid in keeping your hands as soft and lovely as possible, plus it has an added bonus of sanitising germ protection. Providing a non-greasy and alcohol-free cream that is absorbed easily and quickly into your skin as well as keeping them germ free!**

Hand and Cream

In practice
The cream has a lovely fresh almost fruity smell to it, which is not over powering. Upon squeezing the tube the cream comes out easily and only a small amount is required for coverage. I found that the cream came out feeling cool and refreshing on my hands, this to me was an added bonus as it gave my hands a little wake up.

The packaging is hand sized so not too big for you to pop into your bag. I liked that it didn’t scream this product is for ladies only, with the white and blue design I feel that both men and women would be able to use the product comfortably.

As a mum and someone who works for the NHS this is perfect for myself, my family and my colleagues. I am someone who is always thinking about infection and more importantly the spread of infection. Partly due the line of work I am in but mainly I feel as a mum. I remember a few years a go reading an article about the Underground and how many germs are on the handrails… Disgusting! This would be great for communters, just think of how many surfaces you touch during the course of your journey and wouldn’t it be great to not only keep your hands soft but germ free!

The alcohol-free sanitising formulation is to me a revelation as applying the hand gel provided by in hospitals all day can really strip your hands, leaving them feeling dry, sore and tight. I have keep this tube on my desk for the last few days and I can tell you it is nearly empty as every time someone walks passed my desk they have had a little squeeze (maybe I should buy some shares in Vaseline, might make me rich).

This incorporates two key factors for me, soft skin and cleanliness. I feel that should be a staple in everyone’s handbag, changing bag or man bag. I really liked the fragrance and the cool feeling it left my hands both whilst applying and after applied.


All leading supermarkets and chemists, including Superdrug and Boots.
