PocketBac to the Future

Rating: 4/5

To all those who are fans of Bath and Body Works, some SM department store branches now sell Bath and Body Works products. The hand soap is 350 Php per bottle. Sorry, forgot the price for the other stuff but they have lotion and body splash as well. I did not buy yet though because they did not have the scent that I liked. Still, it's interesting to see them on the shelves of SM! *yey*

Due to the A(H1N1) virus, most of us find ourselves applying alcohol or hand sanitizer more than once a day. I do too. A few weeks ago, before the Flu Scare, I used Bath and Body Works PocketBac Deep Cleansing Hand Gel Sanitizer. I got two bottles from my sister-in-law who got the bottles from her trip to the US. I was able to try Sweet Pea and the Winter Collection's Winter Candy Apple. Just as I have said in my review of the Winter Candy Apple Hand Soap, I love, love, looove the scent of this. The hand sanitizer has the wonderful smell as well. Some people actually think that I splashed on body cologne or something because it does smell good. Some people who are sensitive to smell or do not like layering perfume might not appreciate this though.

Sweet Pea on the other hand is exactly what its name suggests, sweet. I find that the fragrance is too sweet, however, the sanitizer is firt and foremost functional so who am I to not use it.

There are other scents available to suit your liking and if you are not a fan of scented hand sanitizers, they also come in unscented form. I have not seen this in the shelves of SM but I am sure you can find a lot of retailers on Multiply.

I like the packaging becaust it's small and will fit any purse. However, because the packaging is too small, they can only pack so much sanitizing liquid. This is why nowadays, I just use my good old plain alcohol.

Regardless of how we keep our hands clean, let's be vigilant to keep diseases at bay. :)

I love Sweet Pea! Hmmm, I wonder how much are the pocketbacs with online sellers, I hope they're cheaper than SM.

Everything Nice!

I have also recently discovered that they have this at Market! Market! Department store and they sell PocketBac for 210Php. The PX Stores in Market!Market! sells them for 200Php. You can haggle but I do not know how much lower you can pull the price. I bought hand soap from GoldTag at multiply, maybe they sell PocketBac too. They had the lowest price before.
