Have you tried Vaseline 2-in-1 Hand Cream with Anti-Bac?

We are a very outdoor family, providing it’s not too grotty outside we will try to get out and about as much as possible. We also try to encourage our children to explore and not worry too much about getting dirty, if they want to play in the mud, then they can. If they want to pick up stones or climb trees then they can, but the one thing that we do insist on is washing their hands before they come back in the house and before meal-times.

Likewise when it comes to my own hands, I always ensure that my hands are clean and fresh before eating and since we are often out and about, you don’t always have a sink with soap and water close by and so in recent years we have turned to many of the anti-bacterial hand cleaners that are available to ensure that our hands are as clean as possible. There has always been one thing that I have not particularly liked about these though, and that is how drying they can be on your hands and some of them don’t smell the sweetest either. Recently I have discovered Vaseline 2-in-1 Hand Cream with Anti-Bac which is the perfect solution.

Vaseline 2-in-1 contains five essential moisturisers; Glycerin, Potassium Lactate, Sodium PCA, Urea and Collagen Amino acids plus sanitising germ protection. Its smells lovely and is a refreshing non-greasy formula which is absorbed quickly leaving your hands silky smooth, soft and germ free. At £3.29 for 75ml it is slightly more expensive than some hand sanitizers but then again, they aren’t a moisturising hand cream too.

I don’t know about you but Vaseline has been a staple name in our bathroom cabinet and my make-up bag for as long as I can remember BUT I didn’t know that it could be used for so many different things, let me enlighten you and see how many of these you DIDN’T know about already.
