Fight Germs This Flu Season with Desert Essence Probiotic Hand Sanitizer {A #momsmeet Review, Coupon + Sweepstakes} #DEprobioticpower

I received this product for free from Moms Meet ( to use and post my honest opinions. Compensation for this post was provided and this page may contain affiliate links.

It's the season of scares...and here's a bit of a scary thought for you: Germs are everywhere.

Now listen... I'm not afraid of germs really. In fact, I believe it's important to be exposed to SOME germs so that our body can build a natural defense against them. BUT... it seems the sicknesses are BAD this year. Since my kids have started school, I have personally been battling back to back illnesses. The best defense? Proper hand washing, of course. But what about those times when we don't have access to a sink, when we need something on the go?

Hand sanitizer is a great option. In theory. But many hand sanitizers can be quite drying on our skin, and not fit into the more natural lives that so many are trying to live by. So, what can we do to fight the germs...without anything extra we don't want?

For that Desert Essence Probiotic Hand Sanitizer might just be the perfect solution.

So, what is Desert Essence Probiotic Hand Sanitizer? What sets it apart? 

It is a pure, potent hand sanitizer that not only kills 99.99% of germs, but also delivers good bacteria courtesy of a probiotic-packed Kefir. It uses a powerful combination of botanical extracts including tea tree oil, thyme, elderberry and echinacea to help in the reduction of bacteria. It uses a patented technology which creates a membrane around the probiotic protecting it from the antibacterial formula. Once the sanitizer has done it's duty, the probiotic benefits will then be delivered. I know, I know... for some of us (myself included), that sounds like a bunch of technical mumbo jumbo that doesn't make much sense at all. To put it much more simply: the sanitizer doesn’t kill the probiotic, and the probiotic doesn’t neutralize the sanitizer. The bad bacteria is eliminated, and the probiotic thrives. Make sense? Truly, this is just what we should want from a hand sanitizer.

In addition, the Kefit also nourishes and conditions the skin as it works. To me, I must admit this is the feature that excited me most. I struggle with dry skin, and most sanitizers can be very harsh and drying on your skin. If you already have dry skin, that's not something that we want in the slightest especially with colder weather approaching. So the idea of killing germs without killing my hands? Yes, that appealed to me!

But, while all this sounds great on paper--- the real question always remains: how well does it work?

I was recently sent a variety of their hand sanitizers to try out for myself and share with you. I have used various Desert Essence products in the past ranging from shampoo to toothpaste and had always been impressed with the quality, so I was likewise very excited to try this one out too. It did not disappoint. Now, honestly, I cannot speak to how well it actually kills the germs. I don't have a way to test that out, but again this being a company that I have used in the past and am familiar with, I feel comfortable in that. Aside from that, it does contain alcohol (an antiseptic) and tea tree oil which has been known to be a good anti-bacterial. What I can speak to is the feeling... and that I really loved. I didn't have any of the drying out that I'd experienced with more mainstream sanitizers.

It comes in three scents: Tea Tree Oil, Tea Tree Oil and Lemongrass, and Tea Tree Oil and Lavender. Those who need the extra calming might benefit from the sanitizer infused with lavender essential oil. Personally, lavender gives me headaches so I didn't care for this one. The other two however were great. I must admit I was concerned when I read the scent because tea tree oil IS such a strong scent- and perhaps not something I want to go around smelling like all day--- but while it's certainly there, I did not find the scent to be overwhelming in the slightest. The Lemongrass to me was the most subtle, and definitely my favorite for that reason. It just left behind a nice, fresh scent.

Desert Essence Probiotic Hand Sanitizer comes in both a regular sized pump bottle, or a small on-the-go size perfect for tossing into your purse, diaper bag, gym bag or backpack covering you anywhere and everywhere.  A 1.7 oz bottle of Desert Essence Probiotic Hand Sanitizer typically retails for $4.49 and an 8 oz bottle typically retails for $9.99.
