Oh, and of course a YEAR’S supply of Carex hand wash. Perfect for those mucky
pups and hygiene fiends out there.

Carex Live Life Hands On Awards Competition

What do you get your paws on everyday? 

The Carex Live Life Hands On Awards is to celebrate the
wonderful and wide-ranging things that our hands are used for. 

Mine start covered in makeup, before wrapping themselves
around my mobile. Then they’re all over a keyboard for a large part of the day,
occasionally stopping for a food break. Okay, I lied, they’re FREQUENTLY
stopping for food and snacks.

What do I have to do to win?

Ever fancied yourself as a hand model? Well Carex wants “A Day In The
Life Of My Hands”.

Entries can be written, photographed, or even filmed. We’re
talking MULTI-MEDIA here people!

So if you like to write, how about a brief
diary? Or if you’re a budding Annie Leibovitz or Steven Spielberg – get behind
the camera
! You can upload up to 5 photos or a Youtube link.

Carex will then pick the 20 best entries so you’ve got 20 chances to winAnyone can enter – it’s open to absolutely anyone from any walk
of life. You just have to be over 18 and a resident in the
UK or Northern Ireland.

So what do you think?

£500 is actually a LOT of Red Letter
experiences – I’ve had a look on the website and I’d spend my £500 on: Spa
Relaxation Day for two, a 4 star weekend holiday AND a Thames Lunch Cruise. I’m
such a high-roller, I know.

And a year’s supply of Carex? Personally, I love a good handwash. I find it quite relaxing to scrub my hands, pretending I could have been
a surgeon scrubbing up before an op.

Err wouldn’t ya like to see a day in the life of my boring hands now eh?…..
