Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we’re all washing our hands a lot more than usual, leaving skin dry, cracked and sore.

While moisturiser may be helping to soothe your hands, switching to a less harsh hand soap could help ease any sensitivity.

The Resurrection Hand Wash from luxe, cult beauty brand, Aesop, is by no means the cheapest option when it comes to hand wash, but it certainly seems to be the kindest option as it helps to maintain the balance of moisture.

It’s little wonder then that the cleansing product is selling out everywhere. In fact, it was Space NK’s most popular product last week and has already sold out on the beauty store’s website, as well as online at Selfridges.

Fear not - it’s still available from Cult Beauty.

Aesop’s ethos is all about marrying old world wisdom with new tech disciplines – harnessing high-quality botanical extracts and fusing them with the latest and greatest scientific discoveries – in short, it will leave your hands softer than before.

This means that if your hands are feeling super dry after all that hand washing, then this will go some way to keep them germ-free while simultaneously soothing them.

The antibacterial properties of mandarin and rosemary extracts help to cleanse, while lavender assists skin in feeling soothed and hydrated.

It’s a brilliant product if you’ve got sensitive skin and will help your bathroom or kitchen smell soft and calm as you wash.

Best of all, according to current customers, this one bottle will last and last: “This is surely one of the best products. The scent is amazing and leaves your hands so soft. I think this will last a long time as you really don’t need very much. Definitely a re-purchase and going to look at other items in the range. If they are as good as this then I will be trying them as well. Perfect!”

Another shopper, this time via Space NK, echoed the same sentiments: “I'm a big fan of Aesop products so I thought I would treat myself to this hand wash. It is very moisturising and doesn't dry hands out. As with the other Aesop products it seems beautiful. It is a little bit pricey but only a small amount is needed so it goes a long way.”

And some people weren’t fans of the brand before, but are certainly converts now: “I bought this hand wash in truth because I couldn’t get hold of any elsewhere, but I’m so glad I did invest because it smells heavenly and is so soft on my skin.I also have sensitive skin, and this is keeping them well hydrated without drying them out!”

Who knew you could turn washing your hands into an at-home spa experience?
