SafeSkin First Aid Antibacterial Gel Review & Giveaway

Have your kids started their fall sports yet?  I have two boys in soccer right now.  You know scrapes and cuts are going to happen.  And if not at soccer practice, it'll happen playing at the playground or in the yard.  That's why I was excited to try the new SafeSkin first aid antibacterial gel.

SAFESKIN Kids Antibacterial Gel from Kimberly-Clark Professional is a new first aid topical antibacterial gel that provides a barrier to MRSA, highly contagious staph bacteria that can infect skin, invade other parts of the body and is resistant to many antibiotics.

They got me on the MRSA!  I do clinicals at the hospital and I know I don't want myself or anyone in my family to get that!

 SAFESKIN Kids Antibacterial Gel offers a long-lasting protective barrier on uninfected minor cuts, scrapes, and burns - up to 48 hours - if the bandaged wound stays clean and dry. And the non-greasy formula helps bandages to stay in place better!

The nice thing is that you don't have to worry about taking a sticky bandage off everyday.  If the bandage is on a hairy part of my kids' bodies, they scream when I try to take it off.  With SafeSkin as long as you keep the area clean, you don't need to change the bandage everyday.

Of course, out of 4 kids, I knew it wouldn't take long until I would get to try SAFESKIN out.  My son got a big scrape on his arm from playing outside, so I put SAFESKIN on him, and I love that it wasn't the usually gooey cream you put on.  It felt fine to him, we put a bandage on, and didn't have to touch it again for a couple of days.  I liked the piece of mind that it wouldn't get infected.

I also like that it is designed for kids, that way I know that all the ingredients are safe for them.

BUY IT:  You can find it at select Walmart stores.

Starting next week, you can get $1 Off SafeSkin with this coupon.  Print it soon.


WIN IT: One Kids and Deals reader will win their own tube of SAFESKIN.  Enter the rafflecopter form below.

Good Luck!

Disclosure: I received the free product as part of a promotional program with SAFESKIN Kids Antibacterial Gel and MomSelect.  However, all opinions expressed are my own.
