Your OCD hand wash cheat sheet
If you’re one of those people that hates touching the escalator handrail, or tatty-looking money – or even your chocolate-covered child – then you’re a fully-fledged germophobe, and you’re not alone.
Many people can’t stand the feeling of unwashed hands, the only problem with that is, the constant hand-washing can leave your poor paws feeling anything but amazing.
What you need is a hand wash that’s nourishing enough to allow for numerous hand cleanses throughout the day, without stripping all of the natural oils away and leaving your skin dull and dry.
Check out a few of the best non-drying hand washes (as reviewed by beautyheaven members) that will leave your hands happy, hydrated and above all – clean!
“The supermarket was out of stock of my favourite hand wash last time so I browsed for a little while and ended up walking away with this one. I'm really pleased with my choice! It's also great to know that as Dettol makes this, you can trust that it's really working hard to remove all bacteria from your hands as you wash. ”¨The best bit about this hand wash though really is the scent and beautifully moisturising texture. Wonderfully soft and creamy, it smells oh so subtly of vanilla, doesn't lather up too much and washes off easily. This is one I'll be repurchasing.” Rating: 5/5 – Spunkx
“I have the exotic variant and I just love it, there is no overwhelming scent just a nice mild one and it moisturises as it washes. No matter how many times I wash my hands they are not left feeling horribly dry but soft and smooth. Nice one!” Rating: 5/5 – Elunia
“This hand wash is great as it cleans without drying and leaves your hands feeling very clean. The fragrance is quite strong but it is one that I like. I know that eucalyptus and tee tree are good ingredients and makes me feel more confident that I am really getting a good clean.” Rating: 4/5 – Roxymisha
