When you are outside trying to enjoy a nice night, and the mosquitos start to swarm, it can sometimes be overwhelming. There are so many options but it's hard to know what will really work and what will just make you smell horribly. Some even make you smell good and don't work. I have come to the conclusion that the smell means nothing. It's just if they work, they work. If not then they don't.
I have heard of bracelets that did things like this, but I never knew if they worked or not. I always felt like it would be a waste of money if I bought them and they didn't work so I never did. I was excited when I found out that I was going to get to review them. If it turns out they work, I may have to start buying them!
These bracelets are made out of simple materials and the ingredients are all natural and all things that everyone will know, like lavender and citronella. The smell at first is pretty overwhelming. It takes a bit for it to go away or for you to just get use to it. It's not a bad smell, it's just a really strong smell!
I knew these would be perfect to wear at my son's last ball game of the season. We always sit in the grass close to the woods to watch the game and the bugs are bad! We put these on, which was pretty easy. There are multiple holes, so they will fit a wide variety of wrist sizes. I ended up folding the end of mine back under so the piece that you attach the bracelet ends with, doesn't keep stabbing me in the wrist.
For the most part, these things seemed to work. My kids decided to use a spray and wipes and they were swatting at the bugs all night. My mom did both and was still swatting even with the bracelet on as well. For me though, I just used the bracelet and I didn't have an problem with bugs at all the whole game.
This bracelet actually did work for me. All natural products seem to be a big hit or miss. Sometimes they work and other times they don't do a darn thing. This is one all natural product that actually does seem to work. Plus I could eat with it on and after handling it, because I wasn't worried about getting sick by something on my hands getting in my mouth through my food. Like I would with sprays or wipes.
This way is also much less messy. You don't have to worry about bringing a can or a package of wipes along with you so it is also less to store. Simply slap it on when you think you may be in a mosquito area and you are ready to go!
