Review & Giveaway: Prefense Hand Sanitizer

If you're like me, you have about 10 different hand sanitizers in 10 different places. I never leave home without it. My kids are still super young and my two year old loves to touch everything and then put his hands in his mouth. Do you know how many times I have to use sanitizer with him? Let's not even go there! So when I found out about Prefense Hand Sanitizer and how you only had to apply it once I jumped! Here's some information about Prefense and why it's so wonderful:

-No alcohol! Prefense is made of all-natural organic ingredients and has absolutely NO alcohol in it!

·   Our technology protects you for 24 hours or 10 hand washings!  This is what moms really love to hear about!

·   Prefense is non-toxic and safe for kids! It will not hurt you if swallowed!

·   Prefense is silica based which means it doesn’t dry out your hands like traditional alcohol sanitizers.  It actually smoothes and softens your hands. You can totally see this when you apply it!

·  Prefense protects against staph, strep, E.coli, drug resistant MRSA strains, and more. We fight germs that other hand sanitizers can’t.

·  Because “one spray lasts all day” our 1.5 oz Prefense Botanicals Hand Sanitizer offers 120 applications, costing only $.08 per day, compared to $1.20 per day with alcohol hand sanitizers.  


My Take: I received the 1.5 oz bottle to review. Now I wouldn't say it's a super small bottle and that's great for me. Some of those sanitizers I end up losing in my purse. This one is easy to find. I was worried about the snap top coming off but so far that hasn't been a problem. I think what I love most about this sanitizer is that it's a foam and not a liquid. My kids always turn their hands down and the liquid ones just run off. This one they think it's just bubbles and they are so entertained I can quickly rub it in! Just look at the pictures:

No spills!
rub together


looks like fun bubbles!



And as a mommy who has a little one who keeps his hands in his mouth all the time, I love that Prefense doesn't contain alcohol and I only have to use it once. It lasts forever! My son also has super sensitive and dry skin and Prefense doesn't dry it out more which is another added plus! Will I be buying more? You betcha!


Buy it: You can use the store locator to find a retailer near you that sells PreFense! Right now REI (one of my favorite stores) carries Prefense!



Win it: One lucky reader is going to win an 8oz. bottle of Prefense. That is over 600 applications of this awesome sanitizer! This giveaway will begin on April 11 and end on April 26. It is open to the US only. The winner will be chosen via random.org and notified by email. They will then have 48 hours to respond before another winner is chosen. Just leave a comment to enter.
