One thing I know that all moms have in common is the fact that we constantly have to wash our hands.  ( I know there are tons more of things we have in common like lack of sleep, constant worrying, but that's a whole different post! lol)  I lose track of the number of times I have to wash my hands especially since I am potty training again now.  Of course as we all know sometimes hand washing is still not effective enough.  Well, I have found a new product to become mom's best friend in that department.  It is the alcohol free hand sanitizer called Prefense.  Yes, I said alcohol free which means no strong smell or burning when applied or flammable properties to worry about.

 Prefense is a foam sanitizer that is effective for 24 hours and can last through 10 hand washings without needing to be reapplied.  This product stops skin to skin transfer of germs and provides protection against germs.  These germs include staph, strep, E.coli, and many more.  You can click here to read the complete list that it protects you against in FAQ section. Also possibly the greatest thing about it is that it is not toxic or flammable which makes it perfect for kids of all ages.  It also does not stain skin or clothes in case your little one wipes it on that new outfit you just bought.  Another winning point of it is that it moisturizes rather than dries out your hands.  Now I know all your moms are excited about that especially if you use it regularly like I do.  Also since it lasts so ling you actually save more money since it needs to be applied less.  The small bottle ( 1.5 oz) lasts 110 days!  Yes that is almost four months for the small bottle of hand sanitizer. (A typical bottle of regular sanitizer does not even last a full month just 22 days).

Now I was lucky enough to review a small bottle of Prefense.

I absolutely am so pleased with Prefense.  I loved the fact that it didn't dry my hands out and that my kids could use it and I didn't have to worry bout them with it.  I also loved the fact that it didn't burn when applied to the cut I had on my hand.  It also had a pleasant light smell which I loved since I have two men in the house . I also loved knowing I didn't have to constantly apply more since a little went a long way.  This would be a perfect gift for any mom especially a new mom with all those diaper changes.  It would also be a great gift for a teacher or day care worker.  You can find Prefense online at Amazon.com and REI.com or by using their store locator.  It comes in two sizes - 1.5 oz and 8 oz.

The wonderful folks at Prefense is offering one of my readers the opportunity to win one 8oz bottle which is 640 applications.  Please check back in later this week to see how to enter and to see the rules.

*I received the above mentioned product strictly for the purpose of my review.  The above opinion is completely honest and is completely my own.


  1. I've had to stop using alcohol free hand sanitizer because my hands have an allergy to certain soaps which has caused them to crack. I can't use it because it dries out my hands really bad
