Prefense Hand Sanitizer Review & Giveaway!

I've never been a 'germ-a-phob' until I worked as a CNA. I constantly worked hands-on with people which meant that you had to have good hygiene. I was constantly washing my hands, putting on sanitizer and then hand lotion because it would dry my hands out so badly. I disliked using the hand sanitizer because it smelled so bad, made my hands so wet that I had to stand there and fan them and left a film that made them feel not so clean. 

I no longer work as a CNA but that experience turned me off of hand sanitizer. When I had a chance to review the Prefense hand sanitizer I was more than a little skeptical that it would impress me. Working as a CNA, I used all different brands and kinds of hand sanitizer and none of them were different than the next. 

My Prefense Hand Sanitizer Review

Texture: The first thing I noticed is that it was dispensed from a pump, liquid turning into a foam; not like the normal gel that you squirt out. I love that the foam sticks in your hand instead of running everywhere. The dispenser gives you just the right amount. It did not leave a sticky feeling on my hands, it felt as if nothing was on my hands and I didn't have to wait for it to dry. 

Scent: The scent on the bottle says, 'fresh citrus' but its not at all overpowering. Its a very subtle orange scent. You basically need to touch your nose to your hand to smell it. That's a nice feature because it won't overpower your perfume. 

Safety: The other thing I love is that it is water based and non-toxic which is great because Remy, my dog, is a hand licker. I didn't have to worry about him getting it in his mouth. 

Convenience: I loved that it does not wash off and moisturizes your hands. Just one application lasts through 10 hand washings! That means it will last longer and will save you money by not having to re-apply as often as other hand sanitizer.

About Prefense
Prefense is a new hand sanitizer that protects you from just one application a day. Prefense dries into an invisible, protective film that guards against pathogens in your everyday life. If you encounter germs, Prefense actively slices the cell wall of pathogens while keeping your hands soft and hydrated with the silica complex it contains. 

Prefense vs. Traditional Hand Sanitizers
Traditional hand sanitizers contain alcohol which work by dehydrating the cell walls of certain germs on contact. Once the alcohol based product has evaporated and dried, its anti-bacterial abilities are useless.
