Review & Giveaway: Prefense Hand Sanitizer


As a new mother, I am always looking for ways to eliminate chemicals while also eliminating germs.  When I found out I was going to be reviewing a sample of Prefense hand sanitizer, needless to say, I was pretty excited! 

Prefense hand sanitizer is a silica based hand sanitizer.  The ingredients list is pretty short, which is always a good sign.  The main ingredient is Amosilq (silica) and the inactive ingredients are water, cocamidopropyl 
betaine, essential oil fragrance and citric acid.  Pretty simple, right? 
As a mom who is constantly washing my hands when I am around my 5 month old, I tend to get dry hands.  Every time you wash with soap and warm water or use an alcohol based hand sanitizer, you are pulling 
essential oils from your skin.  The Prefense hand sanitizer has NO alcohol and has natural oils, preventing the dry hands you otherwise would get.  
Each spray lasts “all day” according to the Prefense website and my sample size 1.5 oz bottle contains 120 applications.  Prefense estimates that this will only cost you $0.08 per day to protect yourself against germs such as staph, strep, E.coli and MRSA.  
When sampling my Prefense hand sanitizer, I was surprised that there wasn’t a strong smell like so many other hand sanitizers have.  On the contrary, I could hardly smell it! There is a light “citrus breeze” scent but it was not overbearing and will not scare my son away when he is older and starts using hand sanitizer.  
The hand sanitizer was very easy to apply - it comes out as a foam instead of a glob like others I have used in the past.  The foam spreads easily when you rub your hands together, giving an even spread of sanitizer on your hands.  
I will definitely be keeping this in my purse to keep with me especially throughout winter with all of the flu germs floating around!
