Hand Savior Review
Q: What is Hand Savior Radiance Boosting Serum + Hand Sanitizer
A: Think of this new Hand Savior Radiance Boosting Serum + Hand Sanitizer as skincare for your hands! It does a little of everything, making it an incredible multi-tasking product, which who doesn’t love! Hand Savior is a brightening & hydrating hand serum with effective ingredients such as hyaluronic acid & niacinamide (more on these below), while also effectively cleansing hands with 60% sugar-derived alcohol. I promise you’re going to be as obsessed as I am once you start using this non-sticky, non-toxic, hand sanitizer from Beautycounter – just picture your hands feeling soft, smooth, & hydrated in the meantime!
Here are some fun facts about Hand Savior:
- Approximately 100 uses in the bottle – Based on 1 use, which is the equivalent to 2 pumps!
- Suitable for ALL skin types – If you have sensitive skin, a small patch test is always recommended, but I’d confidently say that Hand Savior is the best hand sanitizer for sensitive skin! My skin is pretty sensitive & I haven’t had any issues. I even use it on my eczema!
- Doesn’t leave behind a residue – It’s formulated to quickly absorb into your skin & has a non-sticky application to leave your hands feeling soft, smooth, & hydrated!
- Recyclable packaging – Hand Savior comes in beautiful glass bottle which can be recycled by following the H2R icon on the bottle. The H2R icon gives helpful instructions on how to recycle the packaging.
- FDA approved – Hand sanitizers, including Hand Savior, are over-the-counter drugs regulated by the FDA.
Q: Why did Beautycounter create this product?
A: As we all know, COVID-19 has created an environment where we all have become a little more cautious of how often & how well we sanitize – our hands specifically! All of this over-sanitizing with harsh, chemical ridden products has left many dealing with cracked, dry, & inflamed skin. Not only that, but our hands are one of the first things to age due to their constant exposure to environmental stressors like wind, sun, & chemical solvents.
Beautycounter wanted to create this innovative hand sanitizer + serum type product to help relieve dry, cracked hands, kill 99.99% of bacteria, while also serving as a hand treatment to hydrate hands & brighten skin – like I said, think skincare for your hands!
Q: How is this product different from other hand sanitizers on the market?
A: I’m so excited that Beautycounter now has a clean & safe option for a hand sanitizer AND one that is SO different from others on the market. Not only is the alcohol used in Hand Savior derived from organic sugarcane, which is grown without the use of pesticides or fertilizers, but every production of Beautycounter’s Hand Sanitizer is tested for methanol & n-propanol impurities to make sure it complies with the safety standards as outlined by industry guidelines for hand sanitizers.
This is huge. If you remember, in June of 2020, a handful of hand sanitizers were recalled due to Methanol toxicity. The symptoms of methanol poisoning can be pretty severe & include nausea, vomiting, dizziness, headaches, weakness, visual disturbances, loss of consciousness, blindness, & even death if ingested, according to Heathline.
Synthetic fragrance is another extremely common ingredient found in conventional hand sanitizers. Fragrance has always & will always be on Beautycounter’s Never List due to most synthetic fragrances being used to cover up hundreds to thousands of harmful or questionable ingredients, including Phthalates.
Although the Hand Savior does have a scent to it – it’s a lovely Mandarin Bergamot scent – Beautycounter rigorously screens all fragrance used within their products for trace contaminants to ensure it meets their strict safety standards. And as always, all “fragrance” ingredients, including EU allergens, are listed on the Beautycounter website to remain fully transparent.
So rest assured, that Beautycounter’s Hand Savior is not only effective against bacteria, but it’s also a tremendous option if you’re looking for a non-toxic & safe hand sanitizer.
Q: What are the key ingredients?
A: As with all Beautycounter products, this new Hand Savior is formulated without the use of over 1,800 harmful or questionable ingredients known to cause skin irritation & or human health issues. Below are some of the key ingredients that make up this product & you can find the full list of ingredients under the Ingredients tab on the Hand Savior product page here!
- Hyaluronic Acid – Helps to hydrate & maintain skin’s moisture!
- Niacinamide – Known to improve the appearance of dark spots, it helps brighten skin & improve uneven skin tone!
- 60% Organic Sugar-Derived Alcohol – An active ingredient antiseptic that helps reduce bacteria!
- Safflower Oleosomes – This is a timed-release delivery system to provide long-lasting moisture!
Q: Is this product effective against bacteria?
A: Yes! This new Hand Savior is formulated with 60% organic sugar-derived alcohol which meets the CDC guidelines for an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. It’s clinically tested to kill 99.99% of bacteria, making it very effective.
Q: Will this product dry out your hands like a typical hand sanitizer?
A: No! This Hand Savior will not dry out your hands like other conventional hand sanitizes on the market. The formula is designed to not only sanitize hands, but to also keep them feeling nourished, hydrated, & youthful!
Q: How do you use the Hand Savior?
A: You can use Beautycounter’s new Hand Savior Radiance Boosting Serum + Hand Sanitizer exactly as the name of the product describes. It’s the ultimate multi-tasking product & can be used to sanitize hands, hydrate hands, brighten the skin on your hands, & keep your skin feeling soft & smooth.
To use this product, simply disperse the product onto your hands & rub it in as you would a standard hand sanitizer, trying to coat your skin evenly. Once your hands are coated, allow the product to absorb into your skin. Due to it being formulated similar to how a face serum would be, it absorbs into your hands beautifully & doesn’t leave behind any sticky residue.
There are about 100 uses within each Hand Savior bottle, which is based on 2 pumps for every 1 use. The bottle is 50 ML/ 1.69 FL. OZ. & should last you about 5 weeks if you use the product 3x a day, which is pretty amazing!
Q: What does the Hand Savior smell like?
A: This new Hand Savior has an invigorating Mandarin Bergamot scent & it smells AMAZING! The scent is one of my favorite parts of this product! And as with any product Beautycounter offers, all fragrance ingredients are disclosed within the ingredient list. Synthetic fragrance or parfum, is something Beautycounter NEVER formulates with.
- Top: Orange Rind, Orange Valencia, Mandarin
- Mid: Bergamot, Raspberry Accord
- Bottom: Sweet Almond Oil
Q: What is the price point?
A: The Hand Savior is $32 USD. The price is reflective of the premium skincare ingredients such as hyaluronic acid & niacinamide, since it is a hand treatment product as well as a non-toxic hand sanitizer. Beautycounter wanted to create a multi-tasking product that performs like a face serum while also being effective against bacteria, which they ultimately did accomplish with Hand Savior. Essentially, when you purchase Hand Savior, not only you are investing in a cleaner alternative to traditional hand sanitizer, but you’re going to be able to use this product to improve hydration & brighten your hands over time.
Q: What are the results of consistent use?
A: I received my Hand Savior earlier this month thanks to a pre-sale, so I’ve been using it for about 4 weeks now & I’m really excited to see the benefits of using this product consistently. It’s clinically proven to decrease the appearance of dark spots*, which I don’t have but my hands, specifically my left hand isn’t looking too amazing due to my eczema, so I look forward to seeing if this product helps at all with my discoloration. My hands have been really dry too because of the eczema & just the cold weather in general & I swear I’ve already noticed an improvement with my hydration levels.
Immediately after use**:

After 4 weeks of use***:
