{Tested} Renouve Anti-Aging Hand Sanitizer

2013 January 29

Renouve’s Anti-Aging Hand Sanitizer (retail value: $29 for 1 oz.) is formulated with bitter orange peel extract, which the company says works as a “disinfectant, preservative, antibacterial, fungicidal and antiseptic.” It also contains palmitoyl tripeptide-5, an ingredient it says “actively diminishes all types of wrinkles and has skin firming and moisturizing properties.

We handed it over to 8 FOFs to test. Read on for their reviews.

**Quick Take: 5 out of 8 testers would recommend Renouve Anti-Aging Hand Sanitizer to other FOFs.

A note from the manufacturer: For best results, Renouve Anti-Aging Hand Sanitizer should be used twice daily for a minimum of three months. Renouve is formulated with collagen stimulating peptides, which is reflected in it’s retail value.
