Celeb-Favorite Beauty Brand Augustinus Bader Is Giving Away Free Hand Sanitizer

Hand sanitizer is a hot commodity right now, and while many brands are capitalizing on that need by introducing new germ-killing products for sale, Augustinus Bader is doing something a little different. Yesterday, the skincare brand donated 20,000 hand sanitizers to healthcare workers and facilities, while the remaining 40,000 units will be given away, for free (plus the cost of shipping, $2.95 in the U.S. or £2.95 in the U.K.), to the general public.

Augustinus Bader has a rather impressive celebrity following including such beauties as Priyanka Chopra, Alexa Chung, Kate Bosworth and Victoria Beckham, all of whom are devout fans of the brand's The Rich Cream ($85). And for a company with such effective, beloved and, let's be honest, expensive products, we're willing to bet the hand sanitizer is more than a few steps above your go-to mini Purell bottle (and a major steal, if you manage to snap one up for free).

There is no code or purchase necessary to pick up some hand sanitizer for yourself, but you will need to pay shipping. Simply pop over to and fill out the shipping form to receive two bottles of hand sanitizer right at your front door. Shipping begins on June 1, after which you'll have your own stylish little bottle to prop on your night stand, display on the front hall table or stow next to your kitchen sink. Although, we suggest you act fast if you want to beat out the likes of Chopra or Beckham...
