Mosquitoes are very abundant and widespread in the Philippines. When I was younger, I remember washing dishes on the sink outside our home (because the sink inside has a problem with the drainage) and I had to frequently move my legs in order for me to not get mosquito bites. Even though I move my legs frequently, I still get 2 to 3 mosquito bite in my legs which gets VERY itchy for a couple of hours or worse, until the next day. Some mosquitoes also get into our home which can be very inconvenient because we'll never know unless they bite us. There are some anti-mosquito repellent skin products before but they smell like chemicals.
When I received the Sweetly Citron DEET Free Natural Bug Repellent, I was reminded of my childhood when we were still in the Philippines. Mosquitoes and other bugs are so abundant that I wished I had this to try when we were there. Since my sister is going back to the Philippines this week, I gave this to her so that she can try it.
Since I can't say if this works on mosquitoes or bugs because there are no mosquitoes here (THANKFULLY!), I will give my thoughts about how the Sweetly Citron smells and feels.
The Sweetly Citron DEET Free Natural Bug Repellent arrived in an amber plastic bottle with a spray cap. Instructions on how to use this is clear and easy to follow. I tried it on my arm and the scent is pleasant for a bug spray. It has a mix of Jasmine/Lemon/Vanilla scent which is aromatic. After a couple of minutes, the scent starts to mellow and left my skin smelling nice in a fresh and natural way.
I accidentally sprayed this on my lightly colored shirt and I'm glad that it didn't stain it. It has a cool feel on my skin and it absorbs quickly. It doesn't have that greasy/heavy feel and it didn't irritate my skin either.
I like that this is all-natural and I can't wait for my sister to try it so that I can find out if this truly works. I will update my review once she gets the chance to try this.
