I am a very big fan of everything Sephora. When I saw this product online, my excitement went to disgust. Five dollars for a mini purse sized hand sanitizer? Which made me ask the question: Save or splurge?
I think it would be obvious that my choice be:
Save. As in save your money. Hand sanitizers are nothing new, even moisturizing ones. When I worked in a healthcare facility, it was well known that hand sanitizers dried out the skin because the main ingredient was alcohol and we used them so often . As time went on, more and more brands came out with better and more moisturizing sanitizers to kill germs and to also keep the skin soft. In this case, there is no need for a sanitizer that size, for that price.
Any hand sanitizer that you see that is not that expensive.
Side-note: Bath and Body Works has the mini antibacterial sanitizers on sale for 5 for $5 right now. In conjunction with back to school of course, so who knows how long that promotion will last.
