I have made it a habit of going for an early morning walk every day lately. Just popping on the headphones, a great podcast and then off. My route is about 25 minutes long and provides me with a great amount of fresh air before starting my workday. This morning I changed it up and met with a friend for a proper cup of coffee and a walk around a relatively empty, but sunny Copenhagen. Like most other talks lately, the topic was on the current situation. As I pulled out my travel size bottle of hand sanitizer, we talked about how we have gone from using a nice hand soap to a less expensive kind and how it has made our hands dry up.
It made me think, while it might seem like you are just flushing money straight down the drain with each hand wash sticking to those great brands is probably not the worst idea. I have rounded up some of my favorite hand soaps that will not only make your hands smell nice, they will also make your bathroom sink look amazing.
