Fun Hygiene with Carex + Giveaway

Last week I received a little pack of goodies in the post from the team at Carex who are getting involved in a campaign created by the World Health Organisation. On Thursday 5th May the World Health Organisation are hosting Clean Your Hands Day to promote the importance of hand hygiene and infection prevention. As Carex are constantly expanding their range it seemed like the perfect occasion to try out some of their newer products.

I'm a big fan of Carex and usually have a little hand sanitizer in my handbag for when I'm out and about, plus I'm not a fan of bars of soap so I always have a nice handwash on the go too. I've seen the fun editions products in Superdrug a couple of times but haven't tried them till now. I love the strawberry laces sanitizer - it doesn't have the overwhelming alcohol scent that regular hand sanitizers do, which means it much less drying for your skin. The moisture plus actually has skin conditioners added to the formula which is especially great for dry hands, a definite must for winter!

As I mentioned above I'm really not a fan of a bar of soap, they've always kind of freaked me out. I feel like you just rub your dirty hands all over them and leave the germs lingering, plus they get used pretty often throughout the day so they're always cold and damp. Ew.

After working with food and doing my fair share of food safety tests over the years, I'm pretty much a pro when it comes to hand washing. I make a conscious effort to buy anti-bacterial handwash so I know that it's doing the job of actually killing germs, it's a bonus if it smells great too. The chocolate orange scent is literally like a jaffa cake! I've popped it in the kitchen which seems appropriate for a handwash that's almost good enough to eat.

When I spotted the cleansing wipes in my little goody bag I instantly remembered my whole childhood as my mum always had the wipes out when we were sticky fingered or falling over. In fact I'm pretty sure she still carries a pack around with her now - you're never too old to get in a pickle eating an ice cream! I'm 100% sure they'll come in handy and probably become a handbag staple.
