There are just some days when one is too lazy to keep slathering soap on hands to couple it with water all in the name of being hygienic, especially when frequent hand cleansing is required. Imagine working in a food industry – 5 hand washes won’t even cut it. When I came across Oh So Heavenly Waterless Hand Cleanser on the aisle, I knew I got to have it in my bag. Plus I have always loved the OHS brand.
About: a 2 in 1 product that leaves hands dry, clean and lightly fragranced while removing germs and dirt. It has a blend of soothing aromatherapy, Chamomile and Lavender extracts. It comes in 60 ml, 80 ml and 100 ml bottle. I got mine in a trial pack with a hand lotion and nail file for R59.99 a while back at Clicks.
Target group: The average users of this product are students, workers and people who don’t have access to freely available soap and water. Suitable for the family. It is an efficient and effective way to remove germs and dirt from the hands in a jiffy.
Main benefit: The cleanser has a soothing effect on hands because of the aromatherapy blend, lavender and chamomile. Just a little amount required (about 1.2ml; a squeeze).
Cons: it leaves the hands feeling a bit dry after use probably because of the denatured alcohol present in it. The fragrance is not light at all, it has a heavy scent but I don’t really mind since I love lavender.
Alternatives: Dettol hand wash, Palmolive Liquid hand wash, Dettol spray disinfectant, Nivea wipes
My last opinion: This OHS hand cleanser comes in a fancy squeezable bottle with a click-shut cap which makes it okay to throw in my bag without worrying about spill. Once I squeezed a small amount of this cleanser on my hands, I rub it all over my hands to kill any pesky bacteria or microbes lurking around on my hands – Ewww, don’t even want to think about how often one comes in contact with germs per minute.
The product price is quite affordable. I love Oh So Heavenly products which is why I decide to try this product. I will recommend OHS waterless hand cleanser as alternative option for hygienic hands since it has been proven that waterless cleanser only remove like 60 – 70% of germs. I am too used to soap and water for cleansing my hands because that remaining 30-40% of germs makes me feel uneasy. Nonetheless, I will buy another when I run out.
