Review: Halo Oral Antiseptic
I am excited about this review because it is one of those products that makes me think, "Why didn't someone invent this sooner?!" Halo Oral Antiseptic is a spray that easily fits into my purse or diaper bag so that I can whip it out whenever I feel the need. It provides protection against airborne germs for up to 6 hours and the box says that it is effective against 99.9% of infectious germs, including common harmful germs and bacteria.
I've been using Halo for about a week now and I love it. It comes in a couple of flavors. I tried it in citrus. I love it because I didn't catch a cold so far even though the weather is changing and there are many people around me with colds. I kept a little journal on my iPhone to note times during the last week that I was grateful for Halo.
- At the gym: I was 14 minutes into my plan of using the elliptical machine for 30 minutes when this guy got on a machine next to me and started hacking away. He was so rude! He didn't even cover his mouth. No one would possibly want to stand next to this guy, but I really wanted to finish my 30 minutes, so I stuck it out and kept thinking that I hope that the Halo spray works!
- Gum on the bottom of my water bottle: This is really gross. I was on the shuttle and set my water bottle in someone's old bubble gum. (Who spits their gum out on the seat?!) I didn't initially realize that it was there and I got it on my hand. Since I was on the shuttle, there was no sink to wash my hand and bottle. I was so grossed out. I ran to a bathroom as soon as I got to the campus and washed my hands for 4 minutes straight. I also washed my water bottle.
- I went and got my hair cut and the hairdresser had a cold. I feel bad for her because I know that she needs to go to work, but it isn't very nice to be sick and go to work if you will be working with people so closely and spreading germs. I'm too shy. Maybe someone else would have told her that they wanted someone that wasn't sick, but I stuck it out.
Halo is available at CVS, Target, Walmart, Rie Aid, Kmart, and many other stores for a suggested retail price of $12.99.
