I didn’t think I would be all that excited about a hand cream with anti-bacterial properties, but thinking about it properly, this represents quite a change to traditional anti-bacs that often contain a lot of alcohol and can be drying on the hands. Tests have shown that the Vaseline 2-In-1 Hand Cream + Anti Bac (arghhh enough with the long names!) showed a 99.9% reduction in bacteria within 15 seconds of use. I like the fact that it is quite moisturising as well so you are killing two birds with one stone, and in fact, if you’re like me and a bit slack with the handcream, it may well encourage you to use it more.

What it doesn’t say, however, is what bacteria it actually kills and whether it tackles the hardcore stuff – I can’t imagine it is going to have hospital grade bacteria killing qualities, but on the other hand I don’t really know if the conventional anti-bacs do either. Anyway, it’s £3.29 at your favourite large high street chemists.
