With warm weather drawing us out of the house, it’s more important than ever to wear a mask, wash our hands and keep a trusty sanitizer in our purse or pocket.

Of course, brands that come out with hand sanitizer that meets the CDC’s regulations have our undivided attention. Paul Mitchell is the latest beauty brand to create a hand sanitizer, and they’ve donated 40,000 bottles to high-need groups like first responders, low-income families via Baby2Baby and those facing food insecurity via the Los Angeles Regional Food bank. 

The 3.4-ounce sanitizer is made from 80 percent alcohol, which is on par with the CDC guidelines.

Paul Mitchell also formed the JPMS Salon Jumpstart Stimulus program in response to salon closures due to coronavirus, giving $4 million to help salons affected by COVID-19 get back on their feet. JPMS is donating 12,000 units of hand sanitizer to those salon partners, so you can feel good about your purchase being used to help small businesses.

Reviewers can’t get enough. Not only do they rave about the size — small enough to fit in a bag, but large enough to last — they like that even despite the strong alcohol content, the smell dissipates quickly. It also looks like a mini Paul Mitchell hairspray.

“I just got this and I love it already,” one shopper noted. “I have bought every sanitizer I can get my hands on and the smell is horrible in every one of them. Using this was heaven — no awful scent and still has the ingredients to kill the bad stuff: the awful virus germs! I just ordered another for good measure and before they are sold out.”

They also appreciate how it’s not sticky, unlike other sanitizers:

“Love this spray hand sanitizer!” another reviewer added. “The alcohol smell is not overwhelming and what little alcohol smell it does have fades quickly. My hands feel perfectly clean after using it, without being dried out — and no sticky residue! Super convenient to carry on the go, and I love that a part of the proceeds goes to a great cause!”

Some shoppers even sprayed the stuff on their phones and other high-touch surfaces.

“I was looking for hand sanitizer spray that I can take to work and have in my purse!” says the fan. “This spray is a small size and smells slightly like alcohol. I like how convenient the spray is versus the bottle or pump. I also spray my phone, electronics and my clothes with it!”
