The 10 Best Smelling Hand Sanitisers (And For As Little As $5)



Here’s how to stay safe while smelling good.

Hand sanitisers have become a mandatory beauty product and a hand bag staple over the past few months, and some beautifully fragranced products are out there.

Hand sanitisers work to destroy viruses and bacteria with a high alcohol concentration that causes the outer membranes of virus cells to break, which easily and quickly destroys pathogens. 

One of the easiest and most convenient ways to stay infection free is to apply hand sanitiser regularly when in public. 

We have found some of the best smelling hand sanitisers to put straight in your hand bag:

Glasshouse Fragrances
