Lanolips Antibacterial Hand Cream

On a flying visit to London recently Lanolips founder Kristen Carriol showed off her new 'baby' - and it's arrived just in time for the sniffle season. And you know how most anti-bacterial hand products are drying - or at best, leave skin silky, but not truly nourished? This is a bit of a game-changer, we think, due to lashings of Lanolips's signature lanolin in the blend. You wouldn't just slather this on after a Tube ride or a visit to a dodgy train loo; you'd choose it as an anytime hand-nourisher.

It does, however, kill 99.9% of germs, we're reliably informed (including E. coli and Staph. aureus) - so a nice pressie for a friend who's in hospital, we think.

The slim tube would fit in any handbag. You'll certainly find it in ours, from here on in.
