Sand Gone Review & Giveaway

GIVEAWAY ENDED

Do you love going to the beach but hate bringing the beach home with you? Guess what, you don't have to! No beach bag should be without Sand Gone. Sand Gone is a simple sand-removal product that comes in powder form with a gentle, soft powder puff for smooth, easy application.

I have to be honest, when I first saw Sand Gone online I thought "what makes this product better then everyday baby powder?" I'll tell what makes it better, it's non-toxic, non-talc (do you have any idea how many powders contain talc??) and it has a deliciously light beachy scent. Even my kids said "What's that, mommy? It smells yummy!"


Since receiving the product sample from Sand Gone my family and I have put it to the test. I, personally, hate the beach but I go because we live so close and my family loves it. Amazing what we do for our kids, huh? Sand drives me batty. I couldn't wait to try Sand Gone and had high hopes that it would make my beach days with the family more enjoyable. I am happy to report that while I still don't love the beach (I guess it's just one of those things you love or hate) the sand was much, much more manageable!

One night my husband and I took the kids to have a dinner picnic on the beach. Well of course the kids wanted to swim before they ate so we were all covered in sand by the time we ate. Have you ever tried wiping wet sand off your hands with a towel? Sure it gets some of the sand of but not all of it. Well, with Sand Gone we were able to enjoy our sandwiches with sand-free hands! I didn't want to use the puff on wet hands so I had the kids dry what they could with their towels. Then I used Sand Gone and finished getting the rest of the sand off. There were no "MY HANDS ARE SANDY!" melt downs. SUCCESS!

When we go back to the car we use towels to dust off as much sand as we can from all of our stuff. Then I have everyone dust themselves off and I come around with the Sand Gone. It's a dry powder but it isn't like the powder that leaves a huge plume of "powder smoke" that makes everyone gag. I even used the puff to get the sand off my son's face. Worked like a charm.

On that note, I do have one "caution". I got a bunch of the Sand Gone on my shirt when I dropped the puff. Not a big deal at all but it didn't brush off and left a white mark that later came off in the wash. I only say "caution" in case you're applying it while wearing something you don't want powder on :-)

I am very pleased with Sand Gone and my beach bag will never be without it. Yours shouldn't, either!

I love the beach! We try to go every Sunday, even though it is much more challenging going as a family than going on my own! The thing I love most about the beach is the sound of the waves -- it is so relaxing!

I love the tidepools at our favorite beach - thanks!

What I love best about the beach is swimming in the ocean, which I miss dearly being out in Texas (ok, ok...we have the gulf...but it's just not the same as the Pacific).
