I was first introduced to Merci Handy Hand Cleansing Gels back in April 2017 when I received their Cool Wave scented hand gel in one of my beauty subscription boxes. I instantly fell in love! It was the first hand cleansing gel I’d ever used that smelled beautiful – it didn’t have that typical killer antibacterial smell but instead was fragranced with the most gorgeous sweet scent. It also didn’t dry my sensitive skin out like most other hand cleansers tend to do thanks to the tiny moisturising pearls inside the gel.
As you might know if you read my blog often, I was struck down by tonsillitis, the flu and a horrible chest infection in January that I’m still fighting off. I’m definitely a Monica Geller when it comes to cleanliness and keeping things sanitary so as you can image, I flew through my two Merci Handy cleansing gels (I also had the gorgeous Sunshine scented gel that came in a different beauty box) in my bid to make sure I didn’t pass on the germs to my family. I was running low on my supply so decided to order two new bottles using my GLOSSYCREDITS (click here to read about what they are and how to get them). I ordered the Lollipop scent – described as ‘the smell of childhood treats’ I was excited for it to arrive.
The gorgeously pale pink gel arrived in a couple of days and I couldn’t wait to use it. I got my chief testers (my mum and dad, of course) to try the hand gel out as I was so full of flu that I couldn’t smell a thing. As suspected, they loved it and said it was a really soft, sweet smell. I knew they’d love it, I’d given them some to use on a seaside trip before lunch back in the summer and my dad proclaimed that it was ‘the best hand gel he’d ever used!’
Fast forward to today and I’m happy to say I can finally smell this gorgeous, sweet hand gel every time I use it and I love that the smell lingers for so long after use. The gel is gorgeous to use as it soaks in quickly, feels lightweight and leaves my hands feeling comfortable and clean. The bottles are the perfect handbag size so they’re easy to take along with you wherever you go. I also use this in my professional makeup kit before I work on my clients and I’ve had so many compliments on the beautiful scent.
I’m so happy that I was introduced to this brand and I’m looking forward to trying out the full range.
