Project Pan #8

Ever since I was a baby, I have had a big thing about having clean hands. I wash my hands incessantly before applying makeup, before eating, before going to bed - yeah ok, so I'm a little weird - basically before (and after) most daily activities. I remember when I bought a handbag sized hand sanitiser for the first time. My first thought was 'yeah baby!' my second 'meh', purely because of the smell of the product. It was a strong lemon smell which just reminded me of some sort of industrial bathroom cleaner. Not impressed.

So anyway, before I bore you with my complaints and reveal any more of my OCD tendencies, I present product number 8 in my Project Pan series.

I visited the Bath and Body Works Store (twice, in the space of a week) when I was in LA last year. There I discovered the pocketbac hand gels. These are little bottles of sweet smelling heaven, for me anyway.

Above is the midnight pomegranate hand sanitiser. It smells absolutely amazing and although a little strong at first, it fades into a pleasant subtle fruity smell shortly after rubbing into your hands. You just dispense a little of the gel onto your palm and rub your hands together and voila! Five seconds later, your hands are dry and feel and smell clean again! My lovely other half brought back a handful more of these babies from Dubai for me in lots of new smells which I haven't tried yet. I keep one in my handbag, one on my desk at work, one on my bedside table.. well you get the picture, right?! If you have a B&BW anywhere near you, get these hand gels!

  2. I wish we had a bath and body works in the UK. The soap and glory hand sanitiser smells amazing - I use it all the time just so I can smell it!


  3. I'm always but off by hand sanitiser because they seem to be so harsh and alcohol-y smelling. I'll be on the look out for something scented in the uk now
