Marks and Spencer has been quick to provide us with several essentials during the coronavirus pandemic.

Having launched a face covering collection early in 2020, the brand now has a vast collection of face masks, including stylish reusable fabric designs and convenient disposable ones – and not forgetting, the iconic Percy Pig emblazoned face coverings too.

Now, the high street brand has expanded its popular Apothecary range to include a long-awaited new product: hand sanitiser, fragranced with scents to help calm, balance and soothe.

The Apothecary range’s luxury-looking hand wash and hand cream have already proved a popular pick in recent months, so this new addition is sure to be snapped up.

If you’re tired of the same-old sanitiser smell, this quick-drying formula may be just what you’ve been looking for, as it comes in three fragrances – Balance, Restore, and Calm – all of which cost £5.

Each is infused with essential oils: Balance boasts scents of vetiver, geranium and cinnamon leaf, while Restore is more earthy with hints of geranium, cedar wood and eucalyptus. Calm is a blend of lavender, sweet orange and clary sage.

The antibacterial gels contain 70% alcohol, which is above the amount recommended in hand sanitser by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Each set includes two 60ml bottles, which are compact enough to fit in your bag or pocket.
