Prefense Hand Sanitizer {review + giveaway}

I’m going on vacation this month with two children under the age of three! I’m pretty excited and also slightly scatterbrained thinking about all the things I need to do to make sure the vacation goes as smooth as possible.  No vacation is perfect and goes according to plan every step of the way but hey, I can still try to achieve readiness. I can prepare myself for if things do take a turn for the unexpected to bring peace to all the “What If’s” in my head.

One of my What If’s include, what if my kids pick up some sorta germs that can cause them to get sick! Because we know if one child gets sick the other one is going to get it too and we wouldn’t want that! I am trying my best to my daughter that washing her hands is important and a great way to keep from getting sick and spreading germs. Not sure if she’s quite grasping the concept as she’s always putting her fingers in her mouth. I shudder at the thought of what germs she could be getting into her system.

I try to always make sure my own hands are washed when out and about because there are germs everywhere! Sometimes I can’t always get to a sink right away. So what’s a mom to do? And lets not forget to mention that I’m not a fan of those antibacterial soaps that use no water because they have alcohol in them. Guess what? I just found out about a waterless alcohol free soap that is made of all-natural ingredients called Prefense!

I was able to review a 1.5 ounce sample of Prefense to share my thoughts on and it couldn’t have come at a better time! The bottle I was sent I’ll have to note is perfect the mom on the go whether out and about on daily errands or if you’ll be going on a vacation or day trip of some sort. It’s a handy size to just throw in a purse, diaper bag, backpack, or your luggage for traveling.  It’s totally coming with us on our vacation!

The nozzle on the Prefense bottle I was sent reminds me of those that you would use for foaming soap and very simple to use. I applied the product to my own hands and noted that it quickly saturates into the skin without leaving in sort of greasy or sticky feeling or residue behind. The silica base means it doesn’t dry out your hands like traditional alcohol sanitizers.  It actually smooths and softens your hands. I can completely vouch that it does exaclty what it advertises!

The techonolgy behind the product makes sure to protect you for 24 hours or 10 hand washings. I’m all for the fact that one application last all day long! Prefense protects against staph, strep, E.coli, drug resistant MRSA strains, and more. Fighting germs that other hand sanitizers can’t! It’s assuredly brought a peace of mind to this mom and the fact I can use it on my children to is a major plus. There will be permanent place in my purse and diaper bag of Prefense!
