X3: Clean Hand Sanitizer

X3 Clean Hand Sanitizer
Foaming hand sanitizer and pocket-sized hand sanitizer

Now that baby is here, I’ve been much more diligent at hand washing prior to handling him. Obviously, the best choice is soap and warm water, but there are instances when going out where hand washing may be tricky. In those cases, I use a combination of baby wipes and hand sanitizers. Let’s face it, baby wipes can remove all the dirt and grime from your hands and fingers, but not the germs. That’s where the hand sanitizer comes in handy. I was introduced to X3:Clean by FarleyCo, and it’s been a wonderful staple to my diaper bag.

X3:Clean is an alcohol-free hand sanitizer. In addition to being alcohol-free, it is also non-flammable, non-corrosive, and non-toxic. Thus, it is considered safe for kids! I’m not about to use it on my baby’s hands, but it’s good to have a product in mind for when he gets older.

 

The Packaging

I have two products here: the foaming hand sanitizer and the pocket-sized hand sanitizer.

The foaming hand sanitizer holds 75ml of product in a pump bottle. A clear cap covers the nozzle to prevent it from being accidentally pressed down.

The pocket-sized hand sanitizer is literally pocket-sized. It holds 8ml of product in a small test tube-like container. The bottom is rounded so it won’t dig into you should you decide to keep it in your pocket. The nozzle is activated by a twisting motion, so when you’re finished using it, you can twist it back to lock it from being pressed down.

 

The Product

X3 Clean - foaming hand sanitizer
One pump of foam is all you need!

The foaming hand sanitizer comes out as a light, airy, bubbly foam. Leave it in your hand too long and the bubbles start to pop and liquify. One pump is enough for both hands. I’ll let you in on a secret – it took multiple attempts to get a picture of the foam before it started breaking down. I pumped 5 times to get the shot I liked and didn’t wash my hands between takes. My hands did NOT get sticky or flaky. Other hand sanitizers leave a strange sticky sensation and/or your skin starts to flake off. This one did neither. I’m impressed.

The pocket-sized hand sanitizer isn’t foamy, rather it comes out as a spray. One spray is all you need and the neat thing is, this formula is moisturizing. That’s right! A moisturizing hand sanitizer!

 

The Verdict

I love it. This stuff is awesome. It has a permanent spot in my diaper bag. I’m also taking it with me when I travel in December. The foaming spray will be great to have in my suitcase whereas the pocket spray will be on me at all times.
