Speed Review: Jurlique Moisturising Hand Sanitiser

I don't actually like hand sanitisers: firstly because I think germs are good & we should embrace them more and also because on the few occasions that I have tried a hand santiser, I've found the high alcohol content to be extremely drying. However, I recognise that they serve a purpose and for many, have become a handbag essential. So, with cold & flu season quickly approaching I decided to give Jurlique's Moisturising Hand Sanitiser a go.
Jurlique Moisturising Hand Sanitiser is designed to elimate 99.9% of germs in seconds after application, leaving hands moisturised and silky smooth. Whilst I can't comment on whether germs were eliminated, I found that the gel dried quickly and did leave my hands feeling smooth. As with most hand sanitisers, the main ingredient is alcohol and it has an overpowering scent during use. The blurb states that Australian Bush Mint provides "highly effective antimicrobial properties to fight germs on contact" and whilst this may be true, I do feel that it's slightly misleading as it gives no mention as to the high alcohol content. I really like the lingering, botanical scent once the gel is dry and I certainly didn't feel that I wanted to wash my hands after using as I, ironically, tend to with standard hand sanitisers. I haven't used the hand sanitiser over a long period of time so am unable to comment on the moisturising effects with prolonged use.
At £5 for 50ml, I believe it's more expensive than standard versions. I'm still not a hand sanitiser convert but compared to others I've used, I liked Jurlique's version.
