Is it worth using an antibacterial hand gel?

Antibacterial hand gel is in my opinion one of the best inventions. There is always time and the possibility of washing your hands, and traveling especially by public transport is advisable. At present, during a coronavirus outbreak, this is something you should have at home to follow hygiene rules even more.

There is always an antibacterial gel in my purse, because I often travel by public transport, which unfortunately is not very clean (maybe it has changed a bit now, but it's a pity that an epidemic was needed to take care of the basics of cleanliness). Many studies indicate that public transport, especially seating, is the largest bacterial habitat. It is not difficult to agree with this, because hundreds or even thousands of people use the means of transport every day, who do not know where they had their hands before.

antibacterial gels bath and body works

Unfortunately, many people still do not wash their hands after using the toilet, so it's better to be safe when cold. There are a lot of bacteria around us, and even a moment of inattention can lead to many diseases. Especially now you have to be very careful. It is still not known exactly how coronavirus is transmitted (I have the impression that everything related to this virus is only guesses), and there is still no vaccine for the virus that decimates the population on Earth. Even simply rubbing the eyes with a hand that touched something that previously touched the sick person can lead to infection.

Bath & Body Works antibacterial hand gel

I've been looking for a long time antibacterial gel that does not dry hands. Until now, everyone who used used made the hands dry after use, and after each use of the gel it was necessary to use a moisturizing cream.

Antibacterial gels came with the help Bath & Body works. Gels not only do not dry the skin, in addition they smell great and contain 68% alcohol. My favorite fragrance is 'Paris'. The only thing that bothers me is having a glitter that stays on the skin (and not only because I have the impression that this glitter is everywhere). Fortunately, the version of "unicorn water" came out, which has neither glitter nor blue balls (which I do not understand to this day - what are they for?).

In my opinion, it is worth using antibacterial gels, especially when traveling, and also when it is not possible to wash your hands. It is certainly to some extent protection against various types of diseases. Currently, it is worth having such a gel at home and use it additionally after washing your hands, even when you follow the rules and do not leave the house. This is an additional form of protection against a very dangerous virus for which there is still no vaccine.

Do you use antibacterial gels? What gels do you like best?

    I also think it's a brilliant invention 🙂 but I didn't know there were such awesome versions like Strawberry Cheesecake! 😮

      My Dear is just one of the fragrances - they are also seasonal, e.g. for the winter there was the smell of root cookies ... you can fall in love with their fragrances 🙂 My favorite is Paris :))

    I also really like BBW gels, I always have one in my purse, they are irreplaceable 🙂 Mango Mai Tai is currently my favorite.

  3. Avatar kaminska 27 August 2015 / 08: 30

    I also can't imagine not having an antibacterial gel in my purse. I even feel like I have much cleaner hands after using it than after just washing them with water and soap in a public place.

  4. Avatar Agata Herbut 26 August 2015 / 09: 53

    Dear, I use most often during photo sessions, then I disinfect my hands before and during making make-up,
    I love BBW!

  5. Avatar Samara 24 August 2015 / 18: 58

    I love the smells of those from BBW 🙂

  6. Avatar MISS DE VERE 24 August 2015 / 08: 50

    I don't use, but I am drawn to B&BW gels.
    That I won't get them in Gdansk?

    • Avatar [Email protected] 24 August 2015 / 09: 00

      No, they are not available in Gdansk. Only Warsaw - Złote Tarasy or Allegro.

  7. Avatar Kathy Leonia 24 August 2015 / 06: 27

    I can't imagine my life without this type of gels :)

  8. Avatar Kamila Konarska 23 August 2015 / 21: 15

    I honestly admit that I don't use: / But I have one in the bathroom and I think I will throw it in my purse :)

  9. Avatar Maria N. 23 August 2015 / 20: 26

    I use it, but it does not attach much importance to what the companies are from 🙂

  10. Avatar Daria.R 23 August 2015 / 19: 29

    I also often use 🙂 very useful.

  11. Avatar Joanna 23 August 2015 / 19: 25

    I love gels from Bath & Body Works! Almost like a small perfume 😉

    • Avatar [Email protected] 23 August 2015 / 18: 47

      Gels are available in Złote Tarasy and on the Allegro website

  12. Avatar Karolina I DEFINE blog 23 August 2015 / 12: 55

    Antibacterial gels are a world championship 😉 After all, I use the public toilet without the stress that the soap dispenser will be empty ...

  13. Avatar glleam 23 August 2015 / 12: 53

    I also use and recommend such gels. Handy and useful in every situation and place.

  14. Avatar Sailing 23 August 2015 / 11: 30

    I always use popular carex. 🙂

  15. Avatar JUILOY 23 August 2015 / 11: 25

    I used to use such gels, currently only in urgent cases. I prefer to wash the hands

  16. Avatar Natalia For Breakfast 23 August 2015 / 11: 24

    I use it, but only when I can't wash my hands in a "classic" way. 😉 I like Carex the most.

    • Avatar [Email protected] 23 August 2015 / 18: 49

      These are better than Carex, because they are not so alcoholic and do not dry the skin of the hands 🙂

  17. Avatar Łukasz Bier 23 August 2015 / 07: 36

    my hands are getting very dry after such gels

  18. Avatar Ania S. 23 August 2015 / 06: 16

    Every day I use Carex (wipes) antibacterial. I think it is a wonderful invention 🙂 I have to look around for those recommended by you since they do not dry (hand cream is my second must; p)

    • Avatar [Email protected] 23 August 2015 / 06: 55

      These gels are available in Złote Tarasy or on Allegro. Unfortunately, they don't have any store outside of Warsaw.

  19. Avatar Angelika Ś. 22 August 2015 / 22: 21

    I have two gels of this type and I use them mainly when traveling

  20. Avatar Angelika Klim 22 August 2015 / 20: 49

    As for me, antibacterial hand gels are a great invention, I love them for their beautiful fragrance 🙂

  21. Avatar Kamila JK 22 August 2015 / 20: 17

    I only know the gel from Oriflame. It is nice

    • Avatar [Email protected] 23 August 2015 / 06: 59

      I always have this gel in my purse 🙂 Maybe in a note I will show you what is hidden in my purse :))

  22. Avatar Marzena Szkodzińska 22 August 2015 / 18: 33

    I always have them with me, most often when I travel. They work great 🙂

  23. Avatar Ania Abakercja 22 August 2015 / 18: 30

    do not dry out? What do they have in the composition? I prefer wet wipes. I haven't used the gel yet.

  24. Avatar A. notcopyacat 22 August 2015 / 17: 01

    They have slightly overdone the brocade, but I think it's worth using such gels if you go to places where it's easy to get infected with this and that 😉

  25. Avatar Madziakowo 22 August 2015 / 16: 21

    I just want to test it, but I don't have this store 🙁 and I don't like to order online

    • Avatar [Email protected] 22 August 2015 / 19: 10

      I always buy in store when I'm in Warsaw. I also regret the fact that there are no stores in other cities.

  26. Avatar This pin 22 August 2015 / 16: 11

    I use, but unfortunately those smelly, it's time to look for nicer scents 😀

  27. Avatar Cathy 22 August 2015 / 13: 32

    Hello. I have been using antibacterial gels for many years. Currently, my favorite type is Carex. Greetings. 🙂

    • Avatar [Email protected] 22 August 2015 / 13: 39

      I do not like carex, because it dried my hands terribly 🙁

  28. Avatar sypaaa 22 August 2015 / 13: 26

    I will tell you that if you leave the bathroom and use the dryer after washing your hands, it is better not to wash 100x at all, but use only such a gel. Using the dryer we move all bacteria from the bathroom that settle on our hands. Sometimes I will learn something interesting in college: p

    • Avatar [Email protected] 22 August 2015 / 13: 39

      Seriously? I did not know that! I will never use a hand dryer in a public place again!

  29. Avatar Pistacia 22 August 2015 / 10: 53

    I am looking for a nice gel. I had Clean Hands tubes with 2-3 but unfortunately it contains Triclosan so I don't want to have too much contact with it.

    • Avatar [Email protected] 22 August 2015 / 13: 40

      Try those from Bath & Body works, they have been with me permanently for several years 🙂

  30. Avatar Martin Em 22 August 2015 / 10: 49

    I use, otherwise fear touch something 🙂

  31. Avatar Kaprysek 22 August 2015 / 10: 34

    There is always a gel bag in your purse 😉

  32. Avatar Jasminum 22 August 2015 / 07: 51

    I always take an antibacterial gel for trips. I haven't had those BBW yet and I heard that it smells beautiful 🙂

    • Avatar [Email protected] 22 August 2015 / 08: 49

      Not only that, they smell beautiful, they do not leave the skin on your hands 🙂

  33. Avatar martuus b 22 August 2015 / 07: 06

    I use and I am very happy that such gels are available 🙂 I often come home late by train, and it happens that I eat something and that's when such a gel comes to my aid 🙂
    I recently bought a Venus gel from Rossmann and I'm happy with it 🙂
