Recently I was sent Clean Anti-Bacterial Moisturizing Hand Cream to review.
It’s supposed to kill germs and keep killing them for up to 4 hours, no matter what you touch next. It’s formulated with vitamin E, avocado (a favorite of mine!), jojoba and grape-seed oils. It’s sulfate free. It’s also formulated for sensitive skin, as it contains no fragrances or dyes.
This isn’t greasy, it absorbs fairly quickly and my skin stays soft and moisturized for a while after using it. It doesn’t have anything more than a generic ‘this is a lotion’ kind of scent going on. I like the fact that it’s a cleanser and moisturizer in one.
I’ve used this a few times now and I like it. I think it’s going to be perfect for using during the winter months when everyone at my office has a cold and they’re constantly coughing and then touching door knobs. This will keep my hands from drying out from using too much Purell and washing.
Clean is being sold exclusively at Sephora for right now. You can pick it up for $10 for 1 oz. While I think it’s a tad higher price wise than it should be even for being a multi-purpose product, I will probably purchase it when this tube runs out. I’ll also watch for it to be on sale.
Have you tried Clean?
If so, what did you think?
I work in a bank, so this would be ideal for an environment where I’m constantly handling the dirtiest object known to mankind – money. Still, I’m a little leery of how everything is antibacterial these days. I wonder what’s the antibacterial agent in it? Will it promote antibacterial resistance with continued used? Hmmm… the biology part of my brain is twitching.
I always forget how dirty money is
I like that it’s formulated without dyes, fragrances, or sulfates but I’m also concerned about the high amount of antibacterial products that consumers use these days. Triclosan is probably the antibacterial agent in this lotion as it’s the most prevalent one around.

Yeah I do worry about very resistant bacteria and getting stuck with a particularly nasty strain, especially after my icky spider bite and being on antibiotics for 10 days. It really messed up my body to be on such strong medication.
