These boujee hand washes and sanitisers will completely transform your basic hygiene routine.
We’re still in the thick of the COVID-19 pandemic, and practising basic hygiene habits like keeping your hands clean has never been more crucial. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, you should thoroughly wash every inch of your hands – from your nails to your wrists – for at least 20 seconds. If you don’t have access to water and soap, the next best thing would be your trusty, alcohol-laden hand sanitisers to rid your hands of germs.
Of course, we like to keep it high end here, so why not make the most of your hygiene routine by turning up the luxury factor? Here are 8 boujee hand washes and hand sanitisers that won’t just protect you and your loved ones from germs, but will also have your mitts feeling (and smelling) like a million bucks.
