Lanolips Antibacterial Hand Cream

Lanolips Antibacterial Hand Cream

I've heard the Lanolips brand floating around the blogasphere for a while now, but i'd never really looked into it or actually seen any products before. It wasn't until i saw a lot of bloggers talking about new products release by Lanolips that i finally thought: "Okay, this one is for me!"

Now, i'm pretty sure i've talked about my love for antibacterial gel on the blog before, but if you've never noticed - i love antibacterial gel! I use it all day, everyday; whether it's after cleaning, using the bathroom or just to feel clean, i apply antibac gel a lot. One thing that i have found with excessive use is that it can definitely dry out your skin if you're not careful. Thankfully, i never really struggle with dry skin on my hands - apart from the eczema between my fingers - but by the end of the day, sometimes i notice that my hands could feel softer So, when i saw the new Lanolips product launch i knew that it was something i needed to try.

Lanolips have produced an Antibacterial Hand Cream, that claims to kill 99.9% of bacteria while keeping your hands soft, and moisturised. The product contains Lanolin, which is actually known as wool fat that is secreted by a sheep's sebaceous glands - sounds disgusting, i know - with a purpose of waterproofing and protecting it's wool. However, lanolin is also readily absorbed by our skin and resembles our own sebum, making it an effective moisturiser. It helps to cushion and protect the skin. Lanolin is often suggested for very dry skin, which is why it's perfect for adding into moisturisers.

This, for me, is a very exciting product as it does two jobs within one product. I've been testing it for some time now, and i actually really enjoy using it. It's not something i use all day, everyday as it's a fairly thick consistency and it does need time to sink in after application but i've come to find that it works best for me last thing at night and sometimes first thing in the morning. Once applied, and worked into the hands, it does feel sort of like you're wearing a strange glove and this product is "An antibacterial liquid glove, to condition and protect". It does take a little more time than i would like to fully sink into the skin, but afterwards the skin on my hands feels protect, smooth and healthy. Something i love about this product is it's smell. I'm not sure where it comes from, but you can definitely smell the Aloe but i also think it smells a lot like pine. It's so fresh and clean, perfect for everyday use and what it's designed for. I feel like you do need a good squidge, very technical - i know, to get enough to work all over your hands the tube is only 50ml which is a slight downside for me, but i can look past this because i love the product so much.

It can be purchased on Victoria Health for £8.99, and it will soon be available in Boots along with the Lanolips range.
