What lead me to try these mosquito repellent bracelet was it is all natural and safe to use around kids. I'm not gonna lie, I usually am skeptical and refuse to use these. But since I was given a chance to review product at discounted price, what have I got to lose? Except give it a bad review if it doesn't work.
Now, what I thought was neat about this is, the bracelet comes in 5 different colors, so it lets the kids pick their own bracelet, and makes them more willing to wear it all day. The scent is lemongrass, reminds me of candy. This mosquito repellent is suppose to last 250 hours. When not in use, put it back in back provided, and zip lock it right.
I used it for 3 days straight, because we were on vacation at a beach. Me, my two kids and husband all wore them. Every time we go to the beach, we always get bit. Always. I kid you not. This time, we didn't get bit even once. Three days at the beach, not even once did we get bit. However, when I finally took mine off, 10 minutes day I noticed I had gotten bit. So yes, this stuff works. Now, I want everyone to know, this is not miracle bracelet. It's simply infused with quality essential oil. You can actually just buy essential oil yourself and apply it. However, quality essential oils can be pricey. And of course not always convenient. This is purely for convenience. And with kids, convenience is a great thing. Not to mention they last 250 hours. Just remember to put them back in the zip lock bag they give you.
Very helpful and smells great!!! Will but again if they continue to work:)
Seem to work great. Used them in Hawaii last year and my wife loved them, she seems to be a mosquito magnet.
I use it on my ankle around my sock, I tend to get a rash if I leave it on my skin directly. It does it’s job %100 of the time, I bought these 2 years straight and I haven’t got bitten . Great product and highly recommend it.
I love these bracelets. They really work. I was getting bitten constantly by mosquitoes day and night. So I wear it continuously and no bites.
I love these. They really work. I use them while I'm out with the dogs or in the garden. I put one on my ankle and one around my ponytail. my uncle uses them while he's working on the lawn. He said they work just as well as the spray.
I Live in Hot Humid Houston Texas and My mom has a lot of land! When I went to go visit her I make brought these Cool Insect repellent bands with me for my kids and I. They worked like a charm no messy sprays or sticky lotions to have to deal with, These did the job! On those hot humid days, I pop one on when I go walking in the park and I am not bothered by mosquitoes at all! These are a must if you live in the South plus they come in cool colors, I can match them to my outfit lol . You can also reuse them if you reseal them back up in the little resealable pouch it comes in. I keep one in My car and in my purse all the time! The Fact that they are cruelty free and vegan is also a plus! The oils used in this product are also all natural! Love them !
I had used a version of this product over the summer, so when I went to spend Labor Day up north with family, I grabbed a box a took it with. While I was explaining it to my SIL, she wanted one to tie on the horse's halter as a test because she hates having to spray him with chemocals. Needless to say she kept the whole box and my fur-nephew seems to be a much happier guy. They keep the bugs away from both horse and riders heads and make for an even more pleasant time
I absolutely love that they are individually wrapped in a resealable bag. I feel like letting them sit out between uses would just ruin them. They say that they last up to 250hours once the seal is broken, so I will update in 250 hours. LOL
I received my bracelets a week ago and so far they’re working good, before that my whole body was in mosquito bites
To prevent more bites on my legs, I wear them on my ankles, they’re so easy to slip over the feet, and their scent is quite pleasant. I haven’t been bitten since. Nice choice of colors too.
I purchased these for my kids to have when they went to their overnight camps this past summer. Great deal for the price as I typically pay $1.00 for one at Walmart. I usually buy them 2-4 each so it adds up and I was able to get this on a lightening deal for $6.00 for 10 packs. They worked just as good as the ones I buy in store and I still had some left. They last for up to 250 hours and you can leave them on when it rains or even shower with them on, although I told my kids to take them off. I still also send them with bug spray so they are extra protected but these are are great to have around even if you stay home and hang in your yard in the spring/summer.
Effective, easy to use and fun colors. I wear a few at once (both wrists and ankles) because I'm super sensitive to bug bites. Literally saw a bug flying towards my wrist and turned around after smelling the bracelet from a few inches away. Have not been bitten since I started wearing theses about 8 days ago. Then, this morning I forgot to wear them while in the yard and was bitten in two places! Lesson learned! These work better than any repellent spray I've tried.
I worn one of the bands outside and I was not bitten once by mosquitoes. I usually cannot be outside for five minutes without having to come back into the house to get insect repellent. The bands are so convenient to use. The box they came in contained ten packs of bands, two of each color. The colors I received are attractive (medium blue, green, yellow, pink, and dark blue) but I am not sure if each pack contains the same colors.Because there was an assortment of colors it made it easy for everyone to keep up with which band belonged to them. They are in a coil design which will stretch so one size fits all, or most anyway. Each band comes in a resealable package and I especially like that. I can just put it back in the pack it came in and it will be ready to use the next time I need it. The bands are waterproof and provide up to 250 hours of protection from insects.They would great to take fishing, camping, hiking, or anywhere you would be outdoors, even if it is just sitting on your front porch swing. Deet free, all natural, and cruelty free. I will probably put one or two in my purse so I will have them whenever I need them. I received this product free in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion and review.
These work fantastic for me. I hike through the Kettle Moraine forest and camp here and these have been working better than deet and I’m a Deep Woods Off girl. Haven’t had to use bug spray since purchasing these. Even when the scent weakens it still works pretty good. Bugs literally do a U-turn lol. Very stretchy but bounce back to shape
For whatever reason, mosquitoes love me. In a situation where other people get a few bites, I would get dozens.
These bracelets really make all the difference. If the bugs are really intense, I also put a pair of the bracelets around my ankles.
I bought it for my son he is allergic to insect bites and so far he has nothing, we went to the lake, park and mountain and still no insect bites! Comes in yellow, purple, blue and green. Great value!
I can usually walk outside for two minutes and expect at least 4-5 bites minimum which makes being outdoors difficult for me. I tend to get bit more than most, bruising afterwards. Then I tried these bracelets around my ankle along with a citronella patch on my shirt by RiptGear and I had ZERO bites so far and I’ve been outside on walks with my baby about 5-7 times now!! It’s amazing. I’m not sure if the combo of these AND the patches help but I am a believer!!! Try these. You won’t be sorry.
