The Good: Good scent, Seems to work, Easy to apply
The Bad: Expensive, Not the strongest aroma
The Basics: Bath & Body Works Vanilla Berry Sorbet Anti-bacterial Hand Gel is good, but not overly aromatic.
For the seasonal scents of Bath & Body Works Anti-Bacterial Hand Gels, there are few that make me wish that I had them year round. The Vanilla Berry Sorbet Hand Gel is good enough that I find I do not have any feelings associated with it that is tied solely to a season. Vanilla Berry Sorbet Anti-Bacterial Hand Gel is good, but it is also not the most distinct or powerful scent for an Anti-Bacterial Hand Gel.
For those unfamiliar with the phenomenon, Anti-Bacterial Hand Gels are like liquid soap. You drop a few drops of a gel onto your hands, then rub your hands together and the gel evaporates, killing bacteria on your hands. Also, it has the tendency to clean off mild amounts of dirt. It's a convenient way to clean your hands and keep them sterile while on the run or around a lot of sick people. Or when you're not around water or when you're trying to interact with people you don't want to get sick; there are a ton of times one might want to use these!
Honestly, anti-bacterial hand gels are amazing. The more I learn about the current trend in the spread of communicable diseases, and the ridiculous anti-vaccing movement, the more I want to use them pretty much constantly. I could come up with literally a thousand places and times I've used anti-bacterial hand gels. Anti-bacterial hand gels are essentially biological weapons against bacteria that are convenient, easy to use and basically make living in a first world country great.
Vanilla Berry Sorbet scented anti-bacterial hand gel from Bath & Body Works features a scent that is surprisingly complicated. The aroma is strongly of vanilla, with subtle fruity undertones. The fruit scents are somewhat muted, giving a somewhat milky implication that is much like what sorbet is supposed to be. This 1 oz. PocketBac plastic bottle holds a fluid that smells wonderful. The light pink fluid smells only slightly like isopropyl alcohol alone, which is pretty cool given that isopropyl is the primary ingredient in the gel.
Vanilla Berry Sorbet anti-bacterial hand gel comes in a pocketbac bottle for $1.75, $.99 on sale. The fluid is translucent rose-pink with tiny dark purple flecks in it. The globs don’t seem to do anything.
The bottle is a rhombus shape that fits in the hand rather easily. The flip-top lid makes it easy to open and close the bottle with one hand. This is especially convenient because if you believe you need to sterilize your hands, odds are you will not want to touch many things until you've done. The ability to manipulate the bottle with one hand while getting the product out is a good selling point.
The bottle recommends a dime-sized drop to sterilize one's hands. That seemed to work for me and when applying this gel.
Vanilla Berry Sorbet anti-bacterial hand gel does not dry out the skin and it leaves the hands smelling more fruity than like vanilla on the skin after the initial aroma fades. The fruity scent lingers on the hands for about fifteen minutes after one uses it. Outside the expense, Bath & Body Works has another winner with their Vanilla Berry Sorbet Anti-Bacterial Hand Gel!
