Giveaway and Review: Don't Bite Me Patches (10/14) CLOSED

Wednesday, September 30, 2009 Posted by Dina N

I am the kind of person who would get stung by the sole mosquito in a room full of people. I read once that whoever has the highest body temperature - even by a tiny bit - attracts the critters. Whether this is true or not, apparently I am the perfect mosquito treat! My kids seem to have inherited my unfortunate quality.

I am wary about using bug repellents because of all the chemicals they contain. I have been looking for good alternatives that work without exposing my family to a bunch of unpronounceable compounds. Recently, I came across one such product - the Don't Bite Me patch.

The company making the Don't Bite Me patches is based in Houston, TX, where insects are a big problem. The owners are not chemists but parents who wanted to make a difference. The patch delivers a blend of Vitamin B1 and Aloe and reduces human odors that are attractive to insects.

The patch is transparent and easy to apply. I stuck one on myself and on my husband and kids the recommended two hours before we left the house for a day at the zoo. I love that the patches are natural, simple and safe for children as well as for adults. The patch is very discreet and can be worn even under your clothes. For young children, I suggest placing the patch someplace they cannot reach because kids are curious about it and may try to peel it off.

The patch lasts for 36 hours and is easily taken off once you are safely inside and don't need its protection. The Vitamin B1 gives it a faint medicinal smell that is virtually undetectable. No more messy sprays, smelly lotions and wiping squirming children with repellent towelettes! It's so easy to just stick the patch on and feel protected from all kinds of critters. The patch is even waterproof, so you can go swimming with it, take the kids to the water park, and still not have to worry about insects! Whether you are at the park, go camping, do gardening, or are watching an outdoor sporting event, the patch will help you enjoy the outdoors free of insect bites. The Don't Bite Me patch is available online as well as at retailers such as Kroger and Rite Aid.

The company behind the Don't Bite Me patch has generously donated their product to people in countries where disease is a way of life. They work with humanitarian organizations, such as the Light Christian Church and School in Kenya, Feed the Children, and Joyce Meyer Ministries Hand of Hope.
