Prefense Alcohol-Free Foaming Hand Sanitizer Review + Giveaway

One of my must-have beauty products may come off as a little odd, but it's definitely an important part of my regimen -- I'm talking about hand sanitizer!  Why and how could this possibly be a beauty necessity? Well think about how many products you apply on your face with your hands -- cleansers, masks, serums, moisturizers, foundations.  And think about all the other dirty things you touch throughout the day -- food, cellphones, computers, money -- the list goes on.  And finally do you ever wonder if that little bar of soap doesn't quite get it all off -- and the germs somehow end up on your face?

Call me overly cautious but what do you expect from someone who's been living the last few years of her life in nightclubs and casinos?  I absolutely carry a little bottle of hand sanitizer around in my purse at all times and keep a huge pump by my bathroom sink.  Before I apply anything to my face I use the hand sanitizer, and then follow with soap to get a thorough clean.


But the alcohol in the hand sanitizer has definitely done a number on my hands.  It's so drying and harsh, but it's the price I pay to save face.  Well now I don't have to sacrifice either!  The lovely people at Prefense have created an alcohol free hand sanitizer so I can remain germ-free to my heart's content. 



Prefense's hand sanitizer is made of all-natural ingredients, is non toxic, and safe for kids.  It won't even hurt of you swallow it -- although I wouldn't do it just for kicks.  It's also silica based so it actually smooths and softens your hands rather than drying them out.  And apparently "one spray lasts all day" -- protecting you for 24 hours or 10 hand washings.



So Prefense sent me a bottle to try out and I have to admit I'm quite impressed.  Each spray (it's more of a pump) generates a perfectly sized blob of foam that gives off the tiniest hint of a citrus scent.  After rubbing between my hands, my skin feels soft and silky and it doesn't have the slightest bit of residue or stickiness that most of the alcohol based sanitizers seem to leave behind.  I can't speak for the 24 hours of protection as it feels so good I find myself applying the stuff several times throughout the day.  You can check out their products on Prefense.com.

Now while Prefense sent me the 1.5 oz size bottle, for my readers they will be giving away the huge 8 oz bottle -- enough for 640 applications! The only requirement for this giveaway is to leave a comment below telling me one product you apply on your face with your hands on a daily basis.  





I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

I apply a Neutrogena moisturizer to my face daily, and most days, twice - once in the morning and once at night - with my hands. Thanks for hosting! I hope your foot is getting better!

I don't think this is an odd must-have beauty item! I go to school in a hospital so sanitizing my hands is concern multiple times a day!

I use my hands to apply my sunscreen, face lotion, and BHA products to my face every morning.
