I have a secret weapon to tell you about.

I don’t do too many reviews on here, but when I received an e-mail from a hand sanitizer company in the midst of a week of coughs and runny noses, I couldn’t turn down the chance to try it out. I have been using it for over a week and love it, and I feel like I’m ready to tell y’all about one of my new favorite products.prefenz_8oz_smaller

Prefense is a foam hand sanitizer made with all-natural ingredients. It has NO alcohol in it. So if your little one likes to lick their hands, they won’t get drunk. Seriously, it has happened.

It’s silica-based, so it also moisturizes hands and nails instead of drying them out like an alcohol-based sanitizer would.

Wanna know the best part?! It protects hands from germs for at least 10 hand-washings or 24 HOURS!! You can’t get that guarantee from any other hand sanitizer.IMG_3091It kills all the most common strains of virus including MRSA and germs like strep and E.Coli using it’s super amazing germ force field that is on your hands after application. You can’t see or feel the force field, but trust me, it’s there.

My observations after using it on myself and the girls for a week are…

One squirt is all you need. It goes on easily and does feel a bit sticky as your rub your hands together, but dries super fast and doesn’t feel sticky at all once it’s dry. It has a really slight odor that simply smells clean, as a germ force field should. It’s also completely clear, so no chance of staining.

A bonus to me is that since it is foam and not gel-like, it doesn’t slide off hands like other hand sanitizers do. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve put gel sanitizer on the girls’ hands for it to slide off onto the floor. Or their clothes.

Not only do I use it when we are out and about –at the grocery store, after a trip to Target, before we eat a quick lunch out- but I also put it on Summer’s hands before pre-school. Knowing that it protects her hands from germs for such a long period of time gives me piece of mind that I am lowering the chances of her picking up something icky at school.

Another bonus? It’s pretty cheap to use. Since one pump per day is all you need, it lasts forever!

Wanna learn more? Check out the Prefense website here. You can also “Like” them on Facebook here or follow them on Twitter here.

I’m giving away one 8oz. bottle of Prefense to one of you lucky people. No special or complicated rules, just leave me a comment to enter. I’d prefer it if you were a public follower but I want feed subscribers to be able to enter, too, so it’s not totally necessary.

I do have one rule… if you are the type of blogger who enters 80 giveaways a day just to win free stuff and you don’t actually read my blog, you annoy me and your entry won’t be counted. Sorry.

I’ll give you all one week and announce the winner next Sunday, November 14th!

That stuff sounds great! Love your one rule. HA!

Lindsay said...

Me! I am a hand santizing momma - and it does annoy me to no end that it slides off usually. I always squirt and say "Rub fast!!!"

Monica said...

I rarely use hand sanitizer because of how it dries my hands out. I think I'd like this one if it doesn't dry them out.

Jessie said...

Hahaha, you had me laughing out loud, seriously, about the people who enter 80 contests a day! Anyhoo, I still check your blog out but rarely post comments on any blogs I read anymore. Your daughter Camryn reminds me of my daughter Addison a bit. Petite and all smiles.

New follower... not a big giveaway enterer (that's hard to say outloud) although, I must admit, as a chemo-mom, I've been wanting to try this so this is the 2nd time I've entered a Prefenz giveway (am I annoying now? LOL!) I followed you on Google and put your RSS in my email reader so I can keep up that way too. Thanks for this... hope I win!!!

That sounds like some great stuff! I use those mini bath and body works sanitizers, so I go through them so quickly!

Cynthia said...

I guess I want to be entered into the drawing but I don't know if I would qualify...lol. I used to blog but going back to school has put a damper on the blogging thing.

I just wanted to thank you for posting this. I have a form of eczema on the palms of my hands, which prevents me from using most hand sanitizers and lotions because the alcohol in them just makes my hands break out even more. Most people think I have OCD because I wash my hands between classes because I can't use the sanitizer that is in the rooms. Let's face it college kids aren't really that clean...lol.

Anywho, thank you again for posting this, I am going to see what the results are before I purchase some. But no matter what I think I will be getting some to carry around school with me!!

Brandi said...

We are constantly washing our hands. That sounds like a nice product.

Karen said...

Love that it's alcohol free and lasts for 24 hours!!
