Prefense Review and Giveaway

I will admit I'm a little bit of a germaphobe. I wasn't like this before I had kids. But I hate when the kids are sick, and so I try to do everything I can to keep them from picking up illness. I've been especially concerned since Jaxon has been here.  We are always on the go and the kids have ample opportunities to pick up germs from their friends, playground equipment and public restrooms. I'm always reminding them to wash their hands and I normally carry alcohol based hand sanitizer with me and dispense it as necessary.  

So, naturally, when I discovered Prefense I was intrigued. Prefense contains no alcohol and  and lasts all day, up to 24 hours or 10 hand washings. Isn't that amazing? The active ingredient in Prefense is AMOSILQ. I looked this ingredient up - it is serious stuff! I found out that hospitals use AMOSILQ to prevent the spread of MRSA, so you know it must be pretty powerful, yet it's non-toxic and safe for kids. Once applied, Prefense kills germs on contact and forms an invisible barrier on the skin to protect from new germs for up to 24 hours or 10 hand washings. This is the perfect thing to have your kids apply to their hands before they leave for school each morning! 

We received the 1.5 oz bottle of Prefense and we really like it. The bottle is a good size. It's great for the diaper bag or your purse. While 1.5 oz may not sound like a lot, it contains 120 sprays. Since you only need 1 spray a day, it will last you a while. It's colorless, doesn't stain clothes, and has a light pleasant smell (my kids said it smelled somewhat citrusy). My husband is very sensitive to perfumes and he was surprised to find that he did not mind the smell of Prefense. Prefense also contains botanicals that soothe dry skin and prevent chapping. 

The only downside I've found to using Prefense is that now when I tell my kids to wash their hands, they don't want to. They just tell me that they have the "germ free all day" stuff on their hands. I keep telling them that while it may keep their hands germ free, it doesn't keep them chocolate free, dirt free, or spaghetti sauce free! We will be taking Prefense with us on our trip to Disney World. I'm looking forward to keeping everyone well with the help of Prefense. 

The 1.5 oz bottle of Prefense retails for $6.99, but right now you can get a combo pack that contains the 1.5 oz bottle AND a container of hand and face sanitizing wipes for just $7.99! That's a great deal that would normally cost you almost $14. You can purchase Prefense products from Amazon but you can get great deals, like the combo I mentioned, by purchasing directly from Prefense.

Want to try it before you buy it? You can win the big 8 oz bottle here (good for 640 sprays!). Enter using Rafflecopter below!

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.
