As coronavirus continues to spread globally, hand sanitisers have become one of our must-have handbag essentials. While most hand sanitisers that contain at least 60% alcohol are effective at ridding your hands of germs, many of them have strong, alcohol-heavy scents and can dry out your hands. We tested a few of the latest releases and handpicked our favourite hand sanitisers that not only kill germs but also smell good and moisturise your skin.
