Water Journey Hand Sanitizer

I'm a big believer in keeping antibacterial products out of my house. I really feel that it helps boost our immune systems when we let it actually work. That being said, I also get super grossed out with all the cold and flu germs outside my house! Having a young toddler and myself being pregnant, we're doing what we can to stay healthy this winter. Without staying cooped up in the house that is! I normally bring hand sanitizer in the diaper bag, but have always been less than impressed with how it feels and how it smells. Thanks to Mom Fuse and Water Journey , I now have a product that works well for us!

Water Journey makes a water based, foaming, hand sanitizer that still kills 99.9% of bacteria. It's also an alcohol free, water based formula that doesn't contain any fragrances, dyes, or parabens in it. What I really loved about it though, is that it's super light and doesn't leave my hands feeling all greasy or slimy. It's a light foam that you just rub into your hands until dry and then after it's dry, you don't even know it was there! No after smell, no nothing. And while it may be a bit more expensive than the brands with alcohol in them, this one little 1.69 fl oz bottle has about 150 uses in it! Plus I won't be using as much hand lotion now that my hands aren't drying out from the alcohol.

I also loved the hand sanitizer spray they sent me as well. These pen sized sprays fit perfectly into my purse, the diaper bag and I even tossed one in the car. They work great for my toddler who can't quite get the hang of the foam yet (he keeps trying to eat it!). So a little spray in the hands and some rubbing till dry work great for us! All in all, these are a definite buy in my book. You can order them right from their site or find them at some local retailers.

Definitely loving these and will buy them again!

Oooooooooh! I don't like over killing all of the bacteria. You kill the good as well as the bad, and your body doesn't get a chance to strengthen itself. This stuff looks like an excellent alternative to gelled alcohol.

Very cool. I have been wary of hand sanitizers since that little girl got alcohol poisoning from eating it.

Oh this sounds great. Thanks for sharing. I like the spray idea, because I am sure my kids would try to eat the foam, too!!

sounds much better than the alcohol based kind - i always hate when i forget about a papercut and the alcohol burns!

What a great find! It looks so handy, too, to be able to carry it around without too much bulk. I'll have to check it out.

I hate hand sanitizer for the drying and alcohol smell too so this might be perfect for us. Checking it out...
