    Comments about Bug Band Insect Repellent Wrist Band, Original, .2 oz:

    This product I don't find worked. I bought these for my husband and I for our trip to Jamacia in September. On the day I used the product for an excursion I had put this on my ankle and I literally was bitten 2 inches above from where the product was on my ankle. After a while of wearing the band my ankle started to feel a stinging sensation. I took the bracelet off my ankle and soaked my foot in some water and to a horrible suprise the product left this bright red mark around my ankle and continued to sting for a few days after. The mark on my ankle finally went away after a few days. The braclet did the same thing for my husband and left a pink mark. All in all I don't think these work too well.

        Comments about Bug Band Insect Repellent Wrist Band, Original, .2 oz:

        I never review products, but I had to for this one. My son gets bitten by mosquitos constantly which we were usually able to manage through children's strength bug spray (natural and deet depending on strength needed). Once he started full day school, where there was a lot of outside time, he was eaten alive because sprays ran out after a few hours. I tried this band despite mixed reviews, and could not believe the results. Whenever he wears it (on ankle), no bites. I tried it myself and noticed the difference between wearing it (no bites) and not weating it (3+ bites), same time of day, same location, similar temperature condition. And to boot, this is deet-free. Can't say enough about this product.

          Comments about Bug Band Insect Repellent Wrist Band, Original, .2 oz:

          My spouse & I used the product while working in the yard. We live in a rural area with plenty of bugs. The product was effective until my husband started to sweat. It definately is nt waterproof. It smells good and is easy to apply. It worked well on myself. Bug buzzed around my area but did not light on me at all. BugBand worked on my husband until he began some heavy work and began to sweat. Then the product lost its potency.

              Honestly thought this was a hoax. A friend sent one to me last year to try. My daughter and I get eaten by every mosquito within a 10 mile radius. I tested it on her and she was bite free for days. I told my friend who sent me more and I started wearing one and it worked for me too.

                This product sucks!! I purchased three of these for a family reunion boy was that money wasted. There was gnats, sweat bees and other insects all over us.

                A waste of almost $20.00. Do not waste your money on this product...

                    I have never reviewed a product on this site, but was surprised to find the bugband with such horrible reviews. My husband bought this for me since I get eaten alive. I was very skeptical, but gave it a try since the burt's bees product is hit or miss and so oily. I LOVE it. I have not gotten bit once since I started using this product. It is so convenient. I carry it in my purse and come nightfall, whip it out and place it on my ankle. I love that it leaves no chemicals all over me and I find the smell pretty neutral. My hubby doesnt like the smell when it is in an enclosed car. I came on this site to order 2 more and have recommended it to everyone I know. I dont know why it works for me and not the other 2 reviewers.

                      My husband used this product and found mosquitoes on his legs while wearing on his wrist. He then moved the product to his sock and ended up losing the product with no noticeable difference. Do not waste your money on this like we did.

                      The clever applicability and "natural" ingredients compelled me to buy it, but it failed to deliver. I wore it around my ankle and got bit exactly where it was. Keep looking if you want to find something that works!
