Hey guys!! I love travelling and while exploring different places, it’s hard for me to keep my hands germ free. What do I do? I use a hand sanitizer. But do they really work? Well I know one that works wonders. I recently tried Himalaya herbals’ ‘PureHands’ hand sanitizer. I tried all 5 variants including : LITCHI, ORANGE, STRAWBERRY, GREEN APPLE and LEMON.

Himalaya says…

PureHands is an effective, herbal, alcohol-based hand sanitizer, which kills 99.9% of germs, prevents infection, and ensures total hand hygiene.

PureHands contains extracts of herbs like Coriander, which have potent antimicrobial properties and Lime, which is a natural bactericidal. In addition, the active ingredients of Neem, which are antibacterial, fungicidal and antiviral, safely keep viruses, bacteria and fungi at bay.

Ingredients :

Hrivera – softens hands.It is a strongly aromatic herb.

Coriander – The fruits of the herb possess antimicrobial and astringent properties.

Lime – a rich source of vitamin C. It protects the skin from oxidative damage and helps prevent itching.

Ushira – When applied externally, it removes excess heat from the body and provides a cooling effect.

Neem – used to treat skin diseases.

Price : 80 INR for 100mL

Packaging : It comes in a cute little bottle which is transparent. And has a flip cap. All the ingredients, directions and important details are mentioned on it.

Product : It is a transparent gel but has a little bit of tint. Has a pleasant smell of the fruit mentioned on the bottle. Gives a cooling effect.

My thoughts…

Most of all, I loved the fragrance of these sanitizers. Generally, alcohol based sanitizers have a pungent alcoholic aroma. This felt like I was using pure extract of the given fruit. Also, most sanitizers tend to dry out our hands. This did not have that effect. Lemon had a fragrance which I did not like. My personal favourite has to be the litchi one. It smells amazing and litchi is my favourite fruit…haha. In conclusion, I loved this product and would recommend it to you guys.

  • Maximum Protection

  • Does not leave hands dry

  • Non sticky
