One of my concerns as a makeup artist is cleanliness. I was taught in make-up school to always be clean. Keep my hands and my tools clean.
I always have some alcohol at hand, but they always tend to make my skin extremely dry. My skin would start peeling in some parts of my fingers and my cuticles were in a bad state. I was also getting a bit worried that extreme cleansing my make my hands too sensitive, in the long run lead to irritant contact dermatitis.
When I became brand ambassador for VMV Hypoallergenics, I discovered Grandma Minnie’s Kid Gloves Monolaurin Moisturizing “Anti-Micro-Bug” Hand Gel. Though it’s primarily marketed for moms and babies, I believe that this product will work for everyone.
This hand gel comes in a tube packaging, making it very easy to store in your bag and comes in three sizes to suit your life style.
The hand gel introduces itself with a cool sensation upon initial contact. Once it dries, it leaves my hand feeling smooth and moisturized with out the sticky feel. This product is fragrance-free; this will be a joy to use for those of you who are allergic to fragrances. No more scratching!
The main active ingredient of this product is Monolaurin, which is derived from coconut oil found in coconut milk, a powerful yet gentle compound with germ-killing and disinfecting properties. According to www.wellnesssources.com, monolaurin is also a component of breast milk. So that alone is a testament to its power. This also has some green tea leaf extract in it. So there are some antioxidant and anti-infalammatory magic to happening right before your hands with out you knowing it.
I currently bring this product with me all the time. I keep it within arms reach when I am at work. After all, I work in close parameters with a person’s face and it’s always best to be hygienic.
So if you are on the search for a hand gel product that is proven safe, effective and hypoallergenic do try Grandma Minnie’s Kid Gloves Monolaurin Moisturizing “Anti-Micro-Bug” Hand Gel.
This product comes in tubes of 280 ml, 185ml and 75ml and retails at Php 930, Php 675 and Php 305 respectively.
