Summer is packed with myriad activities that keep you out and about and away from a proper sink. So whether you’re spending the day at the beach, hiking local trails, or picnicking in the park, there’s a chance you’ll need to wash up, but also be lacking a proper place to attend to said hygienic matters. While most germ-aware types keep a bottle of standard issued hand sanitizer, uh, on hand, there are alternatives to help you clean up nice.
Byredo Vetyver and Suede Rinse-free Hand Wash $30
While most hand sanitizers smell like straight up rubbing alcohol because that’s the active ingredient, these luxe water-less hand washes smell decidedly more pleasant. One is infused with a blend of fresh, earthy vetiver, pomelo and violet, while the other smells of musk, pear and not-too-feminine florals.
