I hate mosquitoes! Ever since the rainy season started, they've been everywhere! In the garden, at the beach.. They flock to me like bees to honey and I've had it! I've always wondered why they seem to like feasting on my blood more than anyone else around me. Finally, my skin doctor told me that I emit this scent that attracts the little vampires. Lucky me.
I'm already getting tired of putting on insect repellent every so and so hour which was why I rejoiced when I saw a product tailor-made for people like me!
Para'kito is essentially a company that concentrates on making products that repels mosquitoes. As of the moment, they have two products: wristbands and keychains. The wristband comes in different colors such as yellow, black, green, blue and has printed versions too such as fatigue, hearts, hawaiian and so on. Para'kito claims that the band is waterproof so you don't have to remove it when you go swimming.
The common denominator between these two products are the pellets. According to Para'kito, the pellets contain a unique natural repellent formula, which associates essential oils, with food-based molecules and a perfume composition which repels mosquitoes. Every product of Para'kito comes with two pellets and each pellet lasts for up to 15 days.
Just this minute, I am being hounded my mosquitoes which figured out a way to get through the doors and screens of our house. Aaaaaah! I think I'm heading over to buy a Para'kito product. honestly, I was a bit skeptical when I saw the bracelets a little over a month ago in our neighborhood mall but with 4 bites on my leg in less than 5 minutes, I think I'm giving it a shot. P750* isn't that much to spend for a little peace and quiet away from these pesky little insects.
update: i bought a pink band and installed the pellet right now since mosquitoes have been attacking me again. i'll post a review after 15 days (7/22)
*approximately P50 = $1
