I Have Returned! CLEAN Anti-Bacterial Moisturizing Hand Cream (review)

Hello everyone. Sorry I couldn't write a review yesterday – it was just too crazy. The thunderstorm finally hit (in a big way), but I managed to get everything done that I needed to do outside. I wish I could say I was all done…but I can't. I still have a ton of cleaning and organizing to do tonight – but then I'm finished. For a while at least. (For some reason my dishes refuse to wash themselves.)

Speaking of cleaning, I can't help but think that a cheesy tie-in is long overdue. So today's lovely (and extremely useful) beauty item is from the folks at CLEAN.

Anti-Bacterial Moisturizing Hand Cream

Blurb: Kills 99.9% of germs continuously for up to 4 hours, protecting you instantly and persistently! The formula features SafetyDerm® technology, which suspends germ-killing Benzethonium Chloride in airy-light layers of moisturizers to veils your hands like invisible germ-killing gloves for up to 4 hours. This unscented formula moisturizes with Vitamin E, Avocado, Jojoba and Grape Seed Oil, to leave skin feeling silky and smooth. Alcohol Free. Paraben Free. Triclosan Free. Hypoallergenic.

Since this company is known for its wonderful bath, body and home fragrances; I find it slightly funny that the first product I've ever reviewed from them is unscented. But there you have it! Instead of pretty smells, you get a really fine cream that does double duty by killing germs while moisturizing.

I decided to try it for an entire day. Usually when I use an antibacterial throughout the day, my hands are pretty cranky by evening. This was different. I washed my hands, patted them dry and applied the cream. It felt moisturizing and soothing, then dried to a very light coating. There was no stickiness or greasiness; and my hands felt protected for hours. Every four hours, I washed my hands and reapplied. At the end of the day, my hands were baby smooth - no roughness or dryness at all! Awesome!

I'm keeping the tube in my bag now. A good antibacterial is especially necessary in the warmer months (when we're more likely to come in contact with the "ick" factor). This cream would also make a great addition to your travel stash. It comes in a small one-ounce tube and is perfect for all those travel places with lots of "surfaces."

Like I said, this is the only unscented product from CLEAN. If you want to browse some extra yummy fragranced items, take a look at the website. There's a nice little Gift section and a handy Store Locator. You can also find CLEAN at HSN, Sephora and Ulta.
