Mosquitoes are a pain. When a mosquito bites me it almost always looks like I have welts all over. Being bitten and getting itchy is just part of the problem, though. The diseases mosquitoes can carry are also a problem. From the West Nile Virus to the Zika Virus, mosquito bites can really be serious, and it isn’t something we should take lightly!
Disclosure: I received a complimentary product to facilitate my Natrapel review. Regardless, all opinions are my own and those of my family.
Therefore, finding effective mosquito repellent is key. It’s not only challenging to find an effective mosquito repellent in general, but finding one that will work for the whole family can pose a greater challenge! Natrapel offers long-lasting effective mosquito and tick protection. Plus it is DEET Free! Natrapel’s active ingredient is 20% Picaridin, which is a CDC recommended active ingredient. It lasts up to 12 hours and is EPA registered, and safe for everyone, including pregnant and breast-feeding women.
Of course, protection against mosquitoes and ticks also means protection against the diseases they may carry. The Zika virus hasn’t been very prevalent in the United States until recently. There is even a resource provided on the Natrapel website to stay informed with the latest on the Zika virus.
We received a 3.4 Natrapel Pump Bottle for our Natrapel Review.
Although most people are wrapping up their summer and are getting ready to spend more time indoors, we are the exact opposite. We spend a lot of time outdoors in August and September. So it’s definitely not uncommon for there to be a problem with mosquitoes here. Many of the parks have them and, of course, by the water when we’re fishing!
The 3.4 fl. oz. bottle is a convenient size to carry around. It fits easily in my purse or the tackle box, and I haven’t had any problems with leaks. The pump top is easy to spray and creates a nice mist, so it is easy to apply. It doesn’t have any strong chemical scent, and I think the scent is actually pretty light. The mist makes it easy to spray on both the body and clothing. You can use Natrapel on your face by spraying on your hands and applying sparingly.
Overall, the Natrapel is quite effective! You can apply it twice a day, but I have found once is enough. It goes on easily for great coverage, and it doesn’t result in any complaining, which is always good! Picking tomatoes from our garden was my biggest test. It’s a haven for mosquitoes, and I was able to pick a bunch of tomatoes without saying “Ouch” every 30 seconds! It’s definitely a win!
Natrapel is available for purchase online and at drugstores nationwide.
