Hand sanitisers are now a mandatory beauty product, and there are some gorgeous, fragranced, luxe products.
Hand sanitisers work to destroy viruses and bacteria with a high alcohol concentration that causes the outer membranes of virus cells to break, which easily and quickly destroys pathogens.
Even though social distancing measures are gradually being reduced, in a bid to reduce community transmission and outbreaks of the virus, it has been advised to sanitise hands regularly when in public.
We have found some upmarket hand sanitisers that are just a touch more luxe:
Lost In Amalfi: Sea Mist; Price: RRP $29.95 for 250mL
The luxury candle brand has tuned into the hand sanitiser craze and created a Lost in Amalfi: Sea Mist scented hand sanitiser that leaves hands disinfected and perfumed. This larger hand sanitiser can be left at home for use upon entry and departure or used to fill smaller bottles for travel. Great value for money.

Archie Rose Distillery
Bottled Hand Sanitiser; Price: RRP $20 for 500mL
A more liquid consistency than typical hand sanitisers, it follows the World Health Organisation and Australian Department of Health guidelines to repurpose the distillery to make regulatory hand sanitiser.
The batches made have varying scents, from grapefruit and thyme to Native finger lime and raspberry. The bottle is a huge size, so it is suggested to fill up other smaller dispensers or bottles that can be carried more easily. Amazing value for money.

There are different floral scents available and it is enriched with essential oils, aloe vera and vitamin E, whilst abiding by World Health Organisation recommendations.
