I have two toddlers…in Minnesota…in the winter. I shouldn't find it surprising to see them with runny noses and mild coughs nearly all winter long. I know kids are susceptible to colds. I've actually found myself being more okay with them being a bit under the weather; I've found that it comes with the territory if I want to take Haiden and Piper out in public in the winter!
One thing I'm not okay with is having myself be sick. I'm the one who's home with them all day. I don't have a large support network when it comes to people who are available to take my kids if I'm not well. In short, if I'm sick, I still need to take care of my children.
While I try to be a fanatical hand-washer, I don't always have access to a sink. Plus, this Minnesota Mom's skin is dry enough in the wintertime before scrubbing any extra moisture out of it during all that hand-washing! I keep hand sanitizer gel in my diaper bag and in several rooms throughout our home. That helps with the convenience of keeping my hands clean, but it doesn't save my skin from dry hands.
Believe me, I've tried to find a moisturizing hand sanitizer that does what it's supposed to do. I've tried a few brands and I just haven't been satisfied. Some leave my hands feeling dirty, and some simply don't moisturize!
Mom Central sent me a tube of Veripur hand sanitizer, and I'm so happy to report that it keeps my hands moisturized and clean! Veripur doesn't contain alcohol, so it doesn't dry out your skin. It also kills 99.9% of germs and keeps fighting them off for four hours.
Since starting to use Veripur hand sanitizer and moisturizer, I've learned a bit about what it does. Veripur doesn't deplete the lipid layer of skin. Instead, it creates an invisible undetectable shield on hands that kills germs on contact and keeps new germs from staying on my skin.
I have to say, my favorite thing about Veripur lotion is that it absorbs quickly and doesn't leave a filmy-feeling layer on my skin. I like being able to get right into something after putting lotion on. With Veripur, I can use it, rub it into my hands and immediately go back to typing on my computer!
Interested in trying out Veripur for yourself? You can get it at Walgreens. A 3 ounce tube is $5.99, and a 13 ounce bottle is $10.99.
I wrote this review while participating in a Mom Central Consulting blog tour on behalf of Veripur Hand Sanitizer Moisturizer. I received a Veripur product sample and a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.
