Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Cute container, effective hand sanitizer, no filmy residue, light scent

Cons:Expensive compared to typical hand sanitizers, still prefer soap and water

The Bottom Line: The Bath & Body Works Anti-Bacterial Deep Cleansing Hand Gel PocketBac (Sweet Pea) is a typical hand sanitizer that kills some bacteria and leaves hands lightly fragranced.


I received a little Bath & Body Works Anti-Bacterial Deep Cleansing Hand Gel PocketBac (Sweet Pea) from one of the little kids at work.  It's cute and adds a bit of fragrance to hand sanitizers.

The Product
The Bath & Body Works Anti-Bacterial Deep Cleansing Hand Gel PocketBac (Sweet Pea) is packaged in a cute, clear container that has a flip top lid.  The PocketBac retails for $1.50 but can be purchased for $1 a piece on sale at Bath & Body Works.

Bath & Body Works States:

My Experience
I like that the Bath & Body Works Anti-Bacterial Deep Cleansing Hand Gel PocketBac (Sweet Pea) is packaged in a cute and easily transportable one ounce container.  The packaging makes it convenient for the PocketBac to be carried around in a purse or backpack and used when necessary.

While I'm not an eager fan of using hand sanitizer, preferring to use plain soap and water instead, there are times when soap and water are not readily accessible.  Those are the times when I reach for a hand sanitizer.  I mostly use the "regular" Purell type sanitizers that are plain alcohol with no frills.  The Bath & Body Works Anti-Bacterial Deep Cleansing Hand Gel PocketBac comes with the frill of a variety of scents.

The Bath & Body Works Anti-Bacterial Deep Cleansing Hand Gel PocketBac (Sweet Pea) is easy to use.  Simply flip up the lid and dispense some of the liquid into the palm of your hand and rub your hands together.  I dispense about a dime size amount of the hand sanitizer and rub my hands together.  The hand sanitizer is light pink in color and has blue dots floating inside it.  The blue dots rupture pretty quickly.  The hand sanitizer dries fairly quickly since it does have a 60% alcohol content.  It leaves hands lightly scented with the Sweet Pea scent (not one of my favorite scents); the scent fades in intensity, but doesn't completely vanish for some time.  The hand sanitizer does not leave a filmy residue on my hands after it dries.  I don't find the Bath & Body Works Anti-Bacterial Deep Cleansing Hand Gel PocketBac (Sweet Pea) to be any more drying than other hand sanitizers.

I think Bath & Body Works Anti-Bacterial Deep Cleansing Hand Gel PocketBac (Sweet Pea) is a decent product, but I wouldn't go out of my way to purchase it, especially since I can purchase as effective hand sanitizers for much less.  The added light fragrance is a nice touch, but I don't find it to be the swaying factor for me to purchase this product over a regular unscented hand sanitizer.  Plus I still prefer good old non-anti-bacterial soap and water.

Overall Thoughts
The Bath & Body Works Anti-Bacterial Deep Cleansing Hand Gel PocketBac (Sweet Pea) is a typical hand sanitizer that kills some bacteria and leaves hands lightly fragranced.

Thanks for reading.
