The Bottom Line: Overall the Purrell hand sanitizer is great and ultimately quite effective. Definitely worth the purchase.
Being that I have a 3 old boy, I know all about germs and bacteria. I know that he is going to get into things that he shouldn't, I know that he is going to touch things that he shouldn't, and I know that I have to be a responsive and responsible parent and attempt to counteract these problems. Rather than prevent my son from being a boy and interacting with the world, I simply take the extra steps to help lower his chances of getting sick. One of the ways that I do this is with Hand Sanitizers, which I have him use on a regular basis. There are a variety of different sanitizers that I use, as I realistically have no real loyalty, but there are a few that are better than the rest.
Purrell Instant Hand Sanitizer Purrell has long been know for their hand sanitizing products and as such they are truly a leader in that sense. While their product is not significantly different than any other company, they do attempt to differentiate themselves and that definitely is appreciated.
How well does it work Since I started using the Purrell products I noticed that my son has less issues with getting sick, I notice that his hands are a lot cleaner as he is willing to apply the sanitizer on a regular basis on his own, and I am finding that I myself am not sick quite as often. This of course I'm sure is related to the fact that we are touching our face and specifically our mouths with clean hands rather than the bacteria infested hands we used to touch them with.
Product Points One of the big things that I truly don't like about the Purrell line and many of the others is the fact that it dries out the skin somewhat. If you apply this product on a regular basis, it typically dries out the skin due to the alcohol inside of the product. Typically to lessen the impact, I apply lotion to mine and my son's skin after usage in order to keep our hands from crackling from regular use.
Another issue is that the smell is somewhat strong. My son doesn't like the smell and neither do I. It took my son quite a while to get used to using it because he really didn't want to smell the product, so this of course was a negative, because I needed him to want to use it.
And of course another issue is the taste. Since this product is applied directly to the hands, you are undoubtedly going to taste it on a regular basis as your hands come to your mouth to eat or for whatever reason. While this keeps my son from sucking on his fingers and from biting his nails, it also keeps him from wanting to eat finger foods such as fruits if his hands still taste or smell like the product.

Final Thoughts While the product doesn't taste or smell good, it definitely seems to serve the purpose that it was meant to serve. My son has fun applying it to his hands, so there has been a great decrease in the number of times we are both sick, which has obvious benefits. It is definitely worth the price, especially if you are worried about bacteria issues within your own home.
