REVIEW: Human ♥ Nature Citronella Bug Spray

2:24:00 PM

I've already emptied two bottles of the Human Nature Citronella Bug Spray and I just have to share this with everyone.

I've been using the OFF Mosquito Repellent lotion for Kids on my son for a long time and I noticed it doesn't seem to work, because he still gets mosquito bites. After repurchasing the OFF lotion bottle after bottle, I just had to search for an alternative and that's when I found Human ♥ Nature.  When it said DEET Free and 100% no harmful chemicals I quickly searched for the nearest Human ♥ Nature branch here in Cebu and bought the Citronella Bug Spray without thinking twice.

Product Info from Human Nature

100% natural bug spray effectively protects you from disease-causing mosquitoes and pesky bugs without the nasty effects of toxic chemicals. Includes organic virgin coconut oil (VCO), known for its skin-healing, moisturizing and anti-microbial benefits. It also contains organic citronella oil, a well known insect repellent, organic lemongrass, essential oil together with rosemary and lavender essential oils give off a pleasant smell that’s good for you but bad for the mozzies and bugs! Suitable for very young children!

Retail Price: Php 129.75 100ml
also available in 50ml

What I like about it...

* inexpensive, especially if you've been buying the OFF mosquito repellent you will really appreciate how much this stuff saves a lot of money
* very effective, I apply this on my son after his morning bath and he doesn't have any bug bites for the whole day,  he sleeps so soundly in the afternoon without having to worry about those pesky mosquitoes.
* a little goes a long way, since this is oil based, it's very easy to apply this on both arms and legs
* Deet free and & 100% no harmful chemicals, it made me stop worrying about using this everyday like I did with the OFF lotion

What I don't like...

* the fragrance is overwhelming, especially on your first try. It smells like Manzanilla. But we all got used to scent after a few days of using it.

My rating: 5 / 5

Thumbs Up to this product! It's what every mother could ask for, inexpensive, effective and totally safe. I highly recommend this to you all especially if you're also living in a tropical country like we do.  Rainy season is also starting here in Philippines so this would be perfect for "Dengue" prevention.
