Instructions say to rub it in and leave it to dry for 5 mins before putting clothes on. So what do you wear for those 5 minutes whilst it's drying? It's freezing at the moment smile

Dressing gown? Or do you just wander round in your underwear?

It's a total PITA but I often put undies on first then the gel.

Mind you, our flat is boiling year round and in constantly hot anyway!

I put mine on my arm after a shower then out on a bandana dress whilst I do my hair and make up and by then its dry. I use sandrena though which has the same amount of oestrogen in eAch sachet that is in oestrogel per pump but sandrena is actually less liquid.

Don't use a hair dryer to dry it. Messes up the way it's absorbed into your bloodstream.
