I want to start by saying that this is not a normal type of review and giveaway for this blog. I had intended to do the giveaway on Facebook, but didn’t realize how many restrictions there were on doing that.
I really like this product, though, and I think you all will too. It is gluten free.
I hate mosquitos. They are very annoying, but I also hate putting chemicals or strong smelling (natural) sprays and lotions on my skin. This product has neither chemicals nor strong odors. In fact, it’s completely odorless. And it works!
The Bug Patch is a small square patch that is very thin and clear. It contains vitamin B1 which enters your blood stream and the excess is released through your pores. That means head to toe protection because vitamin B1 masks the carbon dioxide that is coming through your pores and that makes you unappealing to bugs. You can read more on their How It Works and FAQ pages.
The only drawback to this product is that you don’t have instant protection. You need to put the patch on a couple of hours before bug exposure, but the protection lasts up to 36 hours!
They recommend using 1 – 2 patches for adults. I found that one patch worked well for me. The first time I tried it, I went out about 4 hours after putting the patch on. I spent time in my garden in the evening when I would normally receive several bites. I didn’t get any bites.
The next morning I walked the dogs in the woods. I normally avoid the woods this time of year because the mosquitos hang out there, keeping out of the sun. When I do venture into the woods, I can hear them buzzing around my ear and I end up with bites. This time I deliberately went into the woods. I didn’t receive any bites and never heard them buzzing.
