No, no, no,no - its vile! I used it last week and couldn't get rid of the smell until the following day. Its like something you clean the toilet with.
The whole car stank of it on the way home.

I've not tried it but my Mum says it doesn't smell very nice and is very strong.

@SuzieCarmichael

The M&S food court near me does sell individual bottles of it. Has done since the middle of lockdown.

@BradleyCooperwillbemine

The M&S I go to use a communal one that's like vinegar for members of the public entering the shop, but the individual ones that they sell smell really nice. From the sounds of it, some M&S stores are putting the nice smelling one into their own sanitizer dispensers and others aren't.

I liked it the first few times but now it's over-powering, & even after re-gelling in other shops I can still smell it, even with a mask on. It's a bit off-putting if eating or drinking. It only really goes with soap & water.

But at least it isn't sticky like some.

No, it gives me a bit of a headache, not a fan of strong smells especially if not optional!

Christ no! Migraine inducing stuff! As well as sticky and gloopy. It made me wonder if it had a decent amount of alcohol in it or not.

@Purpledaisychain oh thanks I will have to have a look! I donโ€™t suppose you can remember exactly what it was called? Sounds as though there is more than one type of M&S sanitiser judging by this thread and I donโ€™t want to get the other one by accident!

The one I like isnโ€™t sticky and gloopy - itโ€™s very liquid, feels v high alcohol content. Kinda floral fragrance. Is that the one that the rest of you are talking about?

Oh, I wonder if they've changed it? I've been avoiding it because the smell was so overpowering, I had to stop the car to wash it off!
