Proven® 12-14 Hour Long Lasting Deet Free Insect Repellent
What fun is being outside if you are fighting away the mosquitos, flies, and more. I always thought that the time for mosquitos to come out was at dusk. This past summer they were out in full force all the time. I’m not sure if it’s because we had a lot of rain here in NY, but you could not be outside no matter the time of day without there being mosquitos all around. And they were on the hunt for ME!
What makes mosquitos hunt me down is a mystery. Even if I was in a group of people, they were looking for me. I take regular showers so that’s not it. Maybe it’s the soap I use (nope can’t be that, cause my husband uses the same soap and they don’t bother him!) Or maybe it’s my medications or that I’m just a sweet person 🤗 but whatever it is, I can’t be outside without some sort of protection (and they will even bite me through my clothing!) Why do mosquitos like me more than others?
I have already went through a majority of different methods to keep them away from me whether it was the traditional insect repellent or natural and even home remedies and citronella candles. None of them worked.
I don’t get just a little mosquito bite, I get a huge welt from them. And with all the diseases going around now that they can transmit, who even wants to be outside and take a chance with that? Not me! Luckily, I was given the chance to try out Proven® 12 Hour Long Lasting Insect Repellent. Want to know if it worked? Continue reading….
How Proven® 12 Hour Long Lasting Insect Repellent is different?
Proven® 12 Hour Long Lasting Insect Repellent safely and effectively keeps mosquitos and ticks away and is made in the USA. It is also deet free as well as vegan friendly. It’s safe for the planet and people and babies over the age of 2 months.
Not only is it effective for mosquitos, but also for ticks. I had never even seen a tick before. We were camping in Kansas this past summer and my husband came over to where we all were and my daughter in law saw one on him. I would never have known it. Now we don’t go anywhere outside before spraying on the Proven® deet free insect repellent.
If you’ve ever been in Florida near the ocean especially, you know what No-see-ums are because you have gotten bit up without seeing any bugs. Hence the name No-see-ums. And boy do they itch. I scratched my arms so bad one time that I vowed I would never go near the ocean again. Now I can with Proven® Insect Repellent.
Another hazard of Florida are the fire ants. They might be in other states too but when we first moved to Florida in 2003, we learned real quick what they were. We just arrived back in Florida this week and I guess my husband wasn’t paying attention to what I tell him (like all men) and he came in with a bunch of bites on his ankles from fire ants even though he was careful to not step on any ant hills. They’ll still get you if you don’t have Proven® deet free insect repellent on.
It also protects you against flies. I hope it means horse flies and deer flies, because those bites on me are bigger than the mosquito bites. There are also more bugs it protects against like those pesky little gnats but I’m happy with the just the one’s I’ve mentioned.
Did Proven® 12-14 Hour Long Lasting Insect Repellent Work?
Since I’ve starting using Proven®, I would have to say that it has worked and protected me against mosquitos and horse flies 99% of the time while up in NY. Now that we are back in Florida, it has protected me from the fire ants and No-see-ums 100% so far. I haven’t been out around dusk for the mosquitos and thankfully they aren’t out all day like they were in NY but I’m pretty sure it’ll work for the Florida mosquitos just as well. And let’s not forget the chiggers that are abundant in Kansas too.
Did I mention that it’s made in the USA which I am a big supporter of. I received the gentle scent spray but it’s also available in odorless spray as well as gentle scent and odorless lotion. And 12-14 hours is a long time for a product to work.
