Green Beauty: CleanWell hand sanitizer review and giveaway!

I’ve been slightly addicted (oxymoron much? lol) to hand sanitizers since they hit the scene like…a decade ago. It was a decade wasn’t it? Anywhoovers, I have them everywhere. My car, purse and desk. I pull them out after using public restrooms, before eating and after shaking hands (sorry bro…I don’t know where your hands have been).When I was teaching through AmeriCorps, my kiddies saw me pull out hand sanitizer so much that they nicknamed it “hanitizer”.

So imagine my delight when I found out that there was hanitizer that was alcohol-free. You mean, no more drying out of my hands and cuticles? Ohhhh…yeah.

That’s the thing about traditional hand sanitizers. I find the alcohol to be insanely drying. I always dealt with it because I didn’t think there were any other options. Introducing CleanWell, a hand sanitizer that uses plant essential oils instead of alcohol.

And since white tea and aloe are infused in the formula, I can ensure that my hands and cuticles feel clean AND soft. And because we’re using a spray…

…it can be used everywhere! I’ve sprayed it on my keyboard at work, door knobs and even tables while I’m out to eat. Yeah…I go a wee bit overboard with the sanitizing thing.

Since I loved the hanitizer so much, I’m giving one away to one lucky Clumps subscriber!

    I sent an email, but I just want to say that the CleanWell hand sanitizer caught my eye when I was at Whole Foods but I didn't buy it. I'm glad to see it got a good review, and may try it. I'm currently using Burt's Bees sanitizer to avoid drying alcohol, but a friend with nut allergies pointed out it has nut oils he'd be allergic to, so now I'm more conscious I may not be doing to well with that for those with nut allergies.
