We live in a world, where we can no longer forecast anything about the weather. All we can do these days is be cautious and take preventive measures to deal with it.

In India, we are currently experiencing the monsoons, which I am sure we all tend to wonder many times if it is really the monsoons.

I share a love-hate relationship with the rains, simply because I love the rains when I am indoors sipping a cup of tea and eating some hot pakodas, but I hate it when I am outdoors and it rains, as everything around gets mucky and so unhygienic.

Personal hygiene is of highest importance as it determines the overall health of a person. Most of us live not only an unhealthy life but also an unhygienic one.

It’s very necessary that each one of us take small steps towards being hygienic in life. A wise man once said “Prevention is better than cure”

Almost all of us travel every day and many times we are faced with situations wherein our hands tend to get dirty, sticky or unhygienic.

Traditional ways to combat these issues are to carry a small packet of tissues. But you all would agree with me that tissues often don’t serve the purpose, moreover in the monsoons if they get wet, then it’s all a waste.

Thus, we all need a solution, and so the hand sanitizer was born. Hand sanitizers are not only user friendly but are effective and do the job in few seconds.

Himalaya is a well-known brand and has always come out with products that are the need of the hour. They have come out with their version of hand sanitizers known as “PureHands” which is an instant protection for all on the go.

It is an effective, herbal, alcohol-based hand sanitizer, which kills 99.9% of germs thus preventing infection and ensuring total hand hygiene.

It contains extracts of herbs like Coriander, which have potent antimicrobial properties and Lime, which is a natural bactericidal. In addition, the active ingredients of Neem, which are antibacterial, fungicidal and antiviral, safely keep viruses, bacteria and fungi at bay.

It comes in different variants of 50 ml,100 ml and 250 ml in fruity fragrances of Green Apple, Lemon, Litchi, Orange and Strawberry. Thus, they are travel and home friendly.

I tried the Green Apple, Litchi, Orange, Lemon and Strawberry variant and my personal favourite is the Litchi one. Each of the fragrances are as natural as the fruit.

You need a coin sized amount to clean your hands. While cleaning your hands don’t forget to use it just like how you would wash your hands at home.

The best parts of the product for me was the cooling sensation it gave, its mild fragrance that lasted for few hours and that it didn’t make my skin feel dry.

They are economically priced at INR 55 for 50 ml, INR 80 for 100 ml and INR 175 for 250 ml. The bottles are transparent and the liquid has a faint colour of the fruit variants. The cap of the bottle is tight, and hence there is no chance of any spillage or leakage.

Since all the variants have a mild fragrance, it does not bother the nose and sensitive people like me would love to use these sanitizers.

The Himalaya PureHands is a definite try for those who love fruity fragrances and also for those who are bored of the normal ones.

If you don’t have, then I would honestly suggest that you carry a hand sanitizer with you every day and see the difference. Your life definitely will start look healthy and hygienic.

Do let me know your thoughts on the Himalaya PureHands sanitizer, I would love to hear them.
