Something to Smile About: Touchland Hand Sanitizers!


I loved hand sanitizers even before the pandemic. I always carried one of the little Bath and Body works hand sanitizers with me. For many reasons, I switched over to the classic Purell scents during the pandemic and have been carrying those around  in my cross satchel bag ever since — that is until I recently received and tested Touchland hand sanitizers.

I had seen Touchland products floating around on the Internet for a while, but was skeptical of the shape of their packaging and jumping into another new brand. So, what changed my mind? And, what exactly makes Touchland so different? Well, according to their website, they believe “every act of self care should bring unexpected delight and expression” and that Touchland “elevates personal care into a sensory, essential ritual, bringing beauty, health and excitement to the everyday.”

Since I use hand sanitizer all the time, my hands are constantly dry and crack. But, Touchland has completely changed that. All of their products are consciously formulated in order to make sure that your hands are both clean and hydrated with ethyl alcohol, aloe vera, glycereth-26, lemon essential oil, lime essential oil and radish root ferment. 

Plus, I love that their products are plastic neutral, non-GMO, sulfate-free, vegan, cruelty-free and plane friendly. Like, what more could you want in a product? Touchland also has a range of scents for every’s preference and even has an unscented option if you want moisturizing sanitizer with no scent. Not to mention, you have the option to add in their additional accessories to keep your sanitizer with you wherever you go. 

My Thoughts on Their Products

The first of their products that I tried was their Glowmist Rosewater. This sanitizer mist  is so cute (which I love!) and fits way better in my bag — which is small and odd shaped—than any other hand sanitizer I have used. Even better, I have never had to worry about the product spilling and staining anything in my bag. I love how fast this  product dries down and that it doesn’t leave behind any  sticky residue like  so many other sanitizers often do. The only thing I didn’t love about this product was the smell. I am not a huge fan of rose water fragrances, but after using it for a bit, I actually ended up enjoying it. 

For those who don’t know, Touchland also works with other brands and movements to create awesome collabs. I was lucky enough to receive their NEW Smiley® X Touchland trio and I am obsessed. 

Per the brand, “The Smiley® x Touchland collaboration is a limited edition collection that will instantly uplift your spirits. This exciting collection features three of Touchland’s hand sanitizers in tropical scents – Mango Passion, Beach Coco and Citrus Grove. Each scent has its own unique design that will surely make you stand out from the rest.”

Not only does the packaging actually put a smile on my face every time I see it, but the smells are perfect for the upcoming spring and summer months. The Beach Coco scent smells as if you are actually relaxing in the tropics and the Citrus Grove scent is the perfect match to the fun yellow colors of the collab. I’m going to be using these sanitizers constantly and I hope that the collab doesn’t sell out  so I can restock when I inevitably run out! 

If you’re looking to upgrade your sanitizer game, Touchland absolutely needs to be your next stop. In fact,  check out The Smiley® x Touchland collaboration if you’re in the mood for a serious pick me up.
