Where to Find the Best Hand Sanitizers Available Now

Washing your hands is key to staying healthy and, in our new reality, protecting yourself during the coronavirus pandemic we are now facing, according to the Center for Disease Control. When you wash your hands, soap can kill off some germs, but it’s the physical scrubbing motion and flowing water that lift and carry away the significant portion of those unwanted guests.

But if you can’t wash your hands, hand sanitizers are a great alternative, which is also why they’ve been flying off drug store shelves. However, you can still find them at a number of online retailers. Here are a few of our favorites that, as of now, are still available.

This hand sanitizer uses jojoba oil and vitamin E so it won’t leave your skin feeling as dried out as many products in the category do, yet it’s still made up of 62.5% ethyl alcohol, thus meeting the CDC’s guideline for using a hand sanitizer that is at least 60% alcohol to effectively kill germs. The fact that each order contains four bottles is a bonus, as you can strategically place them in your home, car, office, and so on.

Muse Hand Sanitizer gel

The Best Tom Ford Colognes for Men To Wear In 2021
best tom ford colognes for men 0

Tom Ford is probably the closest thing that the fashion industry has to a superhero. He has lent his widely lauded design talents to legendary fashion brands, including, of course, his own. He has an elite, loyal customer base that is made up of international celebrities from all disciplines and, of course, the fabulously wealthy. He also happens to have movie-star looks, is in great physical shape — at 5’11”, he could just as easily have been a fashion model — and projects a personal style that is powerful and sophisticated. He is also an Oscar-nominated director for his two films A Single Man and Nocturnal Animals, and he’s the current chairman of the Council of Fashion Designers of America. And, oh, yeah, he’s also a dad, a distinction which he shares with his husband: they’ve been together for 27 years, just tying the knot in December 2020.
Ford has applied his genius to collections like Perry Ellis, Gucci — where he dusted off a tired brand that was stuck in the 1970s and made it synonymous with sex — and, Yves St. Laurent. He’s dressed former First Lady Michelle Obama, Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, Daniel Craig, Tom Hanks, Ryan Gosling, and Will Smith. Ford designed Craig's suits for the James Bond films Quantum of Solace, Skyfall, Spectre, and No Time to Die. 
As you might expect with a resume like that, Ford product doesn’t come cheap. A Tom Ford cocktail jacket (pants not included) can you set back $4,100. A cashmere hoodie is nearly $3,000. Jeans are around $700 to $800. A nylon backpack goes for nearly $3,000. For some people, that’s okay! But if you want to share in a bit of that Tom Ford glamour without breaking the bank, you can always indulge in the Tom Ford fragrance collection. As eau de parfums rather than colognes (EDP contains between 15 to 20% pure fragrance essence. Colognes are less intense and come in at around 2 to 4 percent), most of them still aren’t cheap, but here are a couple of our favorites that, for the investment, at least will make you smell like a superstar.

The 7 Best Versace Fragrances To Make a Bold Statement
best versace fragrances dylanblue

When Gianni Versace rose to prominence in the 1980s his sensual, brash style was known for skirting the edge of vulgarity. He became as much of a celebrity as the luminaries he dressed, befriending Elton John, Diana the Princess of Wales, Madonna, and Tupac Shakur. Sadly he died in 1997, murdered by an obsessive killer who robbed us all of a true fashion superstar. His operatic life reflected his aesthetic, and that passionate, expressive style lives on in the fragrances bearing his name. These scents are not for the shy and retiring. Like Versace’s bold classic art-inspired prints, they are designed to make a statement.

A quick note: There are two Eau de parfums for men in the Versace family. Normally EDP contains between 15 to 20 percent of pure fragrance essence — the rest is alcohol. Best colognes are less intense and come in at around 2 to 4 percent. EDP does last longer than cologne, but you’ll pay more for it.
