Dr. Bronner’s Hand Sanitizer review


I’ve been using Dr. Bronner’s hand sanitizer for about 2-3 months now. So far, I’ve only tried two variations: the lavender and the peppermint. They look like this:

They’re pretty small because they’re “travel size”.

This is how the lavender scent bottle looks like:

Product description on Dr. Bronner’s site

To better meet the recent increase in demand due to COVID-19, Dr. Bronner’s Organic Hand Sanitizer bottles may temporarily vary in shape.

Due to the limited supply of our hand sanitizer, the maximum quantity you can purchase is 3 units of the hand sanitizer. Any order that has more than 3 units of the hand sanitizer will be canceled & refunded.

Our Organic Hand Sanitizer kills germs with a simple formula: organic ethyl alcohol, water, organic lavender oil, and organic glycerin—that’s it! None of the nasty chemicals you find in conventional sanitizers, but just as effective. Our Organic Hand Sanitizer is perfect for using on the go, on your little ones’ sticky hands and faces, even as an air freshener or deodorant. Sanitize with a clean conscience. All-One!

SUGGESTED USES:Sanitize with a clean conscience! Spray our Organic Hand Sanitizer on children’s sticky hands—wipe clean! Spray on surfaces in public bathrooms, classrooms, buses, trains, planes! Clean screens! Use as air freshener or deodorizer—spray into air for wonderful aroma!

Purchase Information

  • I got it for about S$6+ from Watsons. Since it’s a hand sanitizer after all, I’d purchase it from websites or shops which can be trusted to sell legitimate items.
  • The products are available on Dr. Bronner’s website as well.

My review

I am no medical professional, so I don’t know if this hand sanitizer is the best one to use/good to use in the covid-19 situation the world is in.

But I do give a 4/5 rating for this hand sanitizer because

  1. It’s convenient to use; easier to spray the sanitizer on my hands (compared to having to screw/turn/lift open a cap)
  2. I can control the amount of hand sanitizer on my hand (compared to other bottle forms which I tend to squeeze too hard- way too hand sanitizer gets on my hands)
  3. I prefer this lavender smell to strongly citrus/perfume-like (flowery?) smell. It feels both like a hand sanitizer and a sort of light cologne I can use.
  4. The sanitizer doesn’t leave my hands feeling sticky.
  5. There’s less chance hand sanitizer will get messy in my bag. In this covid situation when handwashing is one of the most important things we can do to protect ourselves and others from the virus, hand sanitizer has become a necessity. Closing/pressing on/screwing off/on the cap of a hand sanitizer is not only troublesome- sometimes when not closed properly, some sanitizer tends to get in my bag. There’s no chance of that for the spray version of Dr. Bronner’s.

That’s it for this review! Hope you’ve found this post informative. If you did, please give it a like/comment! It’ll be even better if you follow my blog “Han Style” 🙂

Cheers, Han Sol
