para'kito.

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 keychains are the newest addition to the Para'kito family.  You can hang them anywhere --- baby carrier, belt bag, bedside table, bedpost --- and mosquitoes will not go near you!



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

  1. Just 1 dollar? You might as well get a few bracelets for an even better protection! lol Or you can change the bracalets to go with your outfit every day! lol

    But seriously, I really hope they work!!

  2. julia. no, it's P50 to $1 so at P750 it's around $15. in their website, it's advertised at 12 euros. almost the same price. i bought one already. i'll try it tomorrow. i'm finishing my last bottle of insect repellent and it's parakito's turn to repel those pesky mosquitoes!

  5. This is so cool, Joei! Naaliw ako... Parang I want to get a bracelet so that when people ask me what it is I can tell them it's a mosquito repellant and they'd say, "Cooooool."

  10. I hate mosquitoes tooo! We normally keep a little clay bowl that emanates steam (inside the house and at all the doorways) and that's really good at keeping them away. I hope these products help you keep them away!
