The Best NATURAL Hand Sanitizer – Product Review

As a mama of a wild toddler, I’m constantly having to clean his hands about 800 times a day. With a pandemic in full swing, using hand sanitizer has become the norm for us. The trick, however, is finding a hand sanitizer that was gentle enough to use on my son.

I received this product for free from Moms Meet to use and share my honest review of this product. Compensation for this post was provided, but the opinions are 100% my own.

You know the days where you say “don’t touch that….” then it happens. Your toddler’s hands are now covered in markers, trash, dirty dish goop, and more. Yuck, right?!

Well, thankfully Desert Essence has a pretty sweet solution to my messy hand toddler livin’ his best life in the middle of this pandemic.

About Desert Essence & their products

Desert Essence was founded in 1978. That’s right, they’ve been around for 41 years creating natural ingredient high-quality beauty products.

Aside from just using high-quality ingredients for their products, they also emphasize their responsible ingredient sourcing, non-animal testing and giving back to the community through various partnerships.

I have to say, I was pretty impressed when I read about their various partnerships to give back through their purchases. In addition, to the way that they source and care for the ingredients this earth provides.

Finding companies with true integrity is hard to find these days and Desert Essence clicks every mark off the checklist.

I also want to point out that this review is specific to their Probiotic Hand Sanitizer, but their line of products include shampoos, conditioners, body oils, and so much more!

Our Review of their Probiotic Natural Hand Sanitizer

We received our Desert Essence Probiotic Hand Sanitizer in a compact little box.

In the box was three 8-oz Probiotic Hand Sanitizers + 1.7oz Travel Size Probiotic Hand Sanitizers (in Tea Tree Oil, Lemongrass, and Lavender variety).

In addition to the hand sanitizers, we also received a cute little makeup bag, a travel hand sanitizer case, and a large zipper tote!

Which the zipper tote is my all-time favorite! It’s SO sturdy & makes the perfect reusable bag for groceries AND for storing baby items, I’m kind of obsessed with it.

Aside from my love for the tote bag, I should probably tell you about the product you’re here to learn about, the Desert Essence Probiotic Hand Sanitizer!

So, we’ve been using our hand sanitizer for just about 2 weeks. My initial reaction was that I was SO impressed at how soft it left my hands after using.

I’m used to that harsh alcohol smelling sanitizer that you put on and it literally burns. This is NOTHING compared to that! It rubs on & absorbs quickly (yay for no sticky hands!) and leaves a softness that even some lotions can’t compare to.

What I found really makes this sanitizer unique is its probiotic proponent.

It contains a probiotic-packed Kefir to condition and nourishes the skin. It’s formulated so that the sanitizer doesn’t kill the probiotic, and the probiotic doesn’t neutralize the sanitizer.

This is probably why my skin felt so soft after use.

It smelled really good too! I was anticipating that overwhelming essential oil kind of smell, but it wasn’t overbearing at all. In fact, my little guy kept trying to eat it, which probably isn’t a good thing, but just goes to prove he loved it too!

Probiotic Hand Sanitizer by Desert Essence Review Breakdown

Ingredients: The ingredients in these hand sanitizers are natural, straight forward and to the point. They come in three varieties of Tea Tree Oil, Lemongrass, and Lavender. My personal favorite was the lemongrass, it just smelt very refreshing.

As I mentioned above, this hand sanitizer is unique for it’s probiotic feature. It 100% doesn’t leave your skin dry and flaky.

Product Size: I really enjoyed having the large push-pump 8oz hand sanitizers because I placed one in the ‘high traffic’ areas in the house that we’d need it most (living room, hallway, and my son’s bedroom).

I also liked the smaller travel sizes because I have one hooked to my diaper bag, in my car and my husband’s car! Extremely convenient.

Desert Essence Product Review with baby

Product Integrity: This company does a great job of creating natural products with integrity. I’m extremely impressed that they are cruelty-free, vegan, use renewable resources and contain no harsh chemicals.

Being a mama to a little one, product integrity is so important to me to make sure I’m using natural and safe products for my son.

My consenses? I would definitely recommend using Desert Essence Probiotic Hand Sanitizer for your family! Especially if you’re on the go or just have a messy little one like me.
