Make Aquaint part of your New Year’s resolutions

It’s that time of year again, when the festivities, fun and frolics from the holiday season start to take their toll. New year’s resolutions alleviate a guilty conscience as two thirds of us in the UK sign up to a gym and vow to make amends for our festive feasting.

If you’re in that majority, make Aquaint a part of your “new year, new you” routine. The natural, water-based hand sanitiser promises to kill 99.9 per cent of bacteria in seconds.

It can be used to freshen up and deodorise the body naturally after an intense workout and it’s perfect for cleansing down the machines before or after use.

The handy 50ml mini spray bottle (£2.49) is perfect for use on-the-go, just pop it in your kit bag and feel fresh even when you might not be looking your best!

Happy New Year from Aquaint.
