This New, Anti-Aging Hand Sanitizer Sold Out in Under 2 Weeks — and It Just Came Back
There are few things as bittersweet as a sold-out product. As a beauty editor, it's nice to see brands succeed — but as a shopper, the little "X" saying "you can't have this" is tantalizing. So when Touchland's Glow Mist Rejuvenating Hand Sanitizer sold out within two weeks of launching in January, it was a tell-tale sign the brand had a hit on its hands (pun intended). And after a month's intermission, it's finally back.
Alongside healthcare workers, masks, and the vaccine, hand sanitizer has been a hero of the pandemic. So it was a smart move for Touchland to unite germ-killing 70 percent ethyl alcohol with skin-friendly additions like aloe, peony root extract, and trehalose in a formula the brand says boosts collagen production and improves skin firmness and elasticity.
It's not just marketing-speak. According to The Derm Review, trehalose has a protective effect against oxidative damage and dehydration, peony root extract lightens hyperpigmentation with ample antioxidants, and aloe is moisturizing and packed with anti-aging polyphenols, enzymes, and vitamins A, C, and E. So the blend gives all the health benefits of sterilizing alcohol, plus an anti-aging hand treatment every time you spritz.
Reviewers support the effects: "[It] smells amazing, and I've noticed a real difference in my skin since I started using it," wrote one person. The scent in question stems from rose petals, rosewater, and blackcurrant bud, and because it's certified Clean at Sephora, you know the perfume is phthalate-free. Another fan adds that the sanitizer gave their hands a "youthful glow," and everyone around them is likewise obsessed with the non-sticky feeling, sleek rectangular design, and fine mist.
The $16 tag is the only sticking point, but at 500 sprays per 1-ounce bottle, each use comes to $0.032, which feels worth it for a more luxurious experience than your average Purell. As a last commenter wrote, "It smells incredibly good, [feels] so hydrating, and the packaging alone is gorgeous. It's a splurge, but you def won't want to share this with anyone, anyways."
