AAM - Review & #Giveaway - Prefense Hand Sanitizer

As a mom of a child with Autism, I find that he often has his hands in his mouth and I worry about the alcohol in hand sanitizers that he's exposed to at school and elsewhere.  I know that, especially in cold and flu season, that the benefits of using hand sanitizer can outweigh the issues that I have with the alcohol and other chemicals found in most hand sanitizers, but what if I can get all of the benefits without all of the problems?

I think I've found my solution- Prefense
  • 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 review:  I absolutely love Prefense.  It has a great scent that is completely the opposite of alcohol-based hand sanitizers, so I don't feel that I have to clothespin my nose when I'm applying it.  And speaking of applying - it is so much easier to get exactly the amount of sanitizer I need.  My hands don't feel wet and sticky for what feels like hours after applying it.  I also love that you don't have to constantly re-apply it, even after hand-washing or in Liam's case, making hand prints in puddles!

Since Liam constantly has his hands in his mouth, I am much more secure with using prefense than I am with allowing him to be slathered in traditional sanitizer and now I know that he'll be safe from the dreaded cold and flu germs even when I decline to have his hands immersed in alcohol...

You can win your own large 8 oz bottle of Prefense!
