Prefense Botanicals Review and GIVEAWAY!! **ENDED**

Pre-fenz Hand SanitizerSanitizer has become a household and office staple for years. Although I believe strongly in sanitizing my hands, I have often been disappointed by the strong scent and/or drying effect constant sanitizing has had on my hands. Prefense Botanicals has created a revolutionary new sanitizer that protects you from germs with only one application a day!  According to the company, the active ingredients dry into an invisible, protective film guards against pathogens encountered throughout the day.  It continues to work through up to 10 hand washes. Plus, since it is made without alcohol your hands will feel moisturized rather than dry after use.

Here is a breakdown of the benefits:
·   No alcohol! Prefense is made of all-natural ingredients and has absolutely NO alcohol in it!
·   The technology protects you for 24 hours or 10 hand washings! 
·   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.
·  Prefense protects against staph, strep, E.coli, drug resistant MRSA strains, and more.
·  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.  

Review:  Naturally I do not have a scientific way to prove that the product works as promised. However, I can tell you that the product does not dry your hands. It has a slight scent to it, which is fairly neutral and definitely not overpowering.  I love that you only need to apply once a day. My kids are both in school and I certainly worry about all the germs they are exposed to every day. Plus, I feel the foam form of this is much more kid-friendly and quicker to dry than gel.  One quick squirt in the morning + all day protection from germs = one very happy mommy!  The cost is reasonable as well seeing as one bottle will last a very long time!

Buy it here: Prefense can be found at retail locations as well as on Amazon.  It is available in a 1.5 oz travel and 8 oz size.

Win it here: One lucky Cake Mom reader is going to win an 8 oz bottle of Prefense!!

I want to win this product because regular hand sanitizers tend to dry out my hands from all the alcohol.

I think that hand-washing/sanitizing is the single best thing to do to avoid either getting or spreading an illness.
