Lura Rosa –
So far so good..
Eleni Cota –
These bracelets were a hit at my Moms 80th birthday party. No one remembered to bring bug spray. So I popped out with four of these really nice looking bracelets. Everyone was so grateful. I have a similar looking bracelet from a trip to Africa and my husband thought that was what I was wearing, it looks so nice. The smell is like citronella and slowly wears off as the days go on.
Misty Rehder –
Ordered the silver and the black bracelets for our trip to Miami beach last weekend and they were great. Super comfortable to wear and look like a trendy leather bracelet. Spent a lot of time in the ocean and pool and this bracelets scent (very pleasant) kept up, though I did swap out for a new one after a few days even though it claims to be effective for 360 hours. Again, I was in the water a bunch and didnt want to take any chances given zika situation. Between the bracelet and spraying with bug repellent for extra protection, I did not get bit once.
Cynthia Hinkson –
Arrived on time, the product I recieved was what was pictured. But lasting 15 days per bracelet??? Not even close to two weeks! For the price and the quantity it was worth it. The bracelet… Woven (Leather) looked great, matched everything I was wearing, and kept me bite free for about 11 days. For me it was well worth what I paid! So yes they do work, very well. Just not for the length of time they are stating.
Katharina Been –
Meh, do smell pretty strong upon opening, but doesnt do that much. I still get bites, was a good try thoughUPDATE: after my original review, the company contacted me and offered to send me a replacement, as well as a spray bottle for free. I appreciated the gesture and their commitment to have me test our their products more. Well, I dont know ow if they sent me a stronger type of bracelets or if my original ones were not coated in as much product, but the new ones worked a lot better.The spray is also very practical and I took it with me on a day out in the forest and didnt get bit. So thank you to the manufacturer, I will get more spray for sure!
Vickie Marley –
Excellent – they worked perfectly on our trip
Jules Saulsbury –
Excellent seller and product hope to do business again soon
Madonna Chipley –
I will leave a review next month. When I use them in a mosquito-prone environment. Thanks.
Stewart Lahman –
Bought these for a trip to Costa Rica. I was impressed, they did a good job at keeping bugs away and lasted the whole 10 day trip. We even wore them in the water and they didnt lose the smell (which isnt a bad smell). They also look nice, just looks like your wearing a braclet.
Jeffery Jurgensen –
Wow they really worked great. I did get bit once on my ankle but otherwise, I saw lots of mosquitoes but no bite and usually they love me.
Michaela Curington –
Works really well..lasts about two times.
Sharan Thornell –
Reliable and honest, thanks for the product.
Gladis Kam –
These bracelets/anklets were easy and effective
Dale Victory –
This is our second order of kinven mosquito repellent bracelets. We traveled to Colombia South America in January and used them the whole time we were there. Zika virus is big there and we were concerned. Thank God No a single mosquito bite. Bracelets are stylish, easy to use and fit any size wrist or ankle.
Coletta Bro –
It actually worked and i havent gotten bit for a couple of weeks so far.
Chassidy Mara –
Great. Got the job done so far.
Pinkie Halle –
i was in Dallas, lots of trees and a stream nearby (we didnt know that). I had one on my right arm, did not get any bites. BUT, i got 14 bites combined on my other arm and both legs. Again, in a park in Dallas in June is not a place to be at dusk. I will try them here at home, hopefully it will be all good.
Elinor Knorr –
Fiji Tested. These worked great. As someone is mosquito bait these worked awesomely. I still got bit not near with the frequency I normally got bit. Which is to be expected, since I get 10 bites everyone elses 1. I did combine this with spray after 24 hrs just to keep up the intensity of protection but overall it was great. I loved the look and shared them with my fellow travelers who also liked them. I even went swimming in a waterfall and ocean and kept up the protection. I would definitely buy again.
Lonny Haralson –
These are interesting. Now it hasnt been warm enough yet where I live to have a huge mosquito problem but I do look forward to trying these out. I like that they dont have an awful smell and that I wont have to slather myself or my child in harsh chemicals to keep the bugs away. If these actually do work as amazingly as the other reviews state I will be buying more in different colors and wearing them on my ankles at the lake also.
Tien Nicoll –
We live in South Florida, where the mosquito quite possibly overpopulates humans so when I had the opportunity to purchase this at a discounted price in return for my review, I jumped right on it! We have two toddlers who develop major swelling from every bite. And if the door is left open for even a moment, we have woken up to as many as 7 bites just on their poor little faces. So I was desperate. In an effort to not be spraying them every night with the toxic sprays, we tried these. And they worked GREAT! We use them in the yard, outdoor parties in mid-summer, camping, and yes, even to sleep when weve seen a couple little buggers buzzing around.My favorite parts: 1-Nontoxic! For the kids, this is a big deal for us. 2-Stylish! They dont at all look like a strange plastic contraption on your wrist or ankle. It also was very unisex – looked good on both the boy and the girl.Each package comes with two. In between wearing them, I put them back in their original packaging, in a ziplock, and that helped them keep for well over 20 days. Another reviewer mentioned soaking them after theyd lost their scent in another repellent… Havent yet, but do plan to do this. GREAT product. Well made. And really work!!!
Lulu Murtagh –
Wore these in Kenya and was eaten alive. Havent tried back in Ohio. They look nice tho and arent sticky or waxy. May have worked a little.
January Raven –
Great for my trip to the beach! Not sure if it lasts as long as it says but i didnt get bitten at all
Collene Olivero –
They look good and are supposed to last about 15 days. I believe Im getting less bites wearing them, but not absolutely sure.
Manie Tinkler –
Been using for about one month. Appears to be effective. In Florida with lots of rain and lots of mosquitos and they love me. Bites have decreased since wearing bracelet. Will probably order again.
Argentina Vicks –
These are really cute and stylish!! So A+ for the design and look. You can smell the citronella, which is cool to me because it lets me know its effective. Its not a strong smell at all, you have to sniff it to get the citronella smell so its not like your going around smelling like citronella. So far, so good. No bites while wearing.
Camila Groman –
Great for the time i was in DisneyWorld. Just towards the end of my 2 week stay I did get bit. But I truly cant complain about that!
Vern Theis –
I took these mosquito repellent bracelets on a recent trip to Guatemala. I traveled to a number of different locations within the country, at different altitudes, temperatures, and humidity levels. I wore just one of these on my wrist during the day, and put one on each wrist when I went to sleep. At the end of my stay in the country, I ended up with just two mosquito bites. I had bug spray handy in case I needed it, but these did a good job of keeping the mosquitoes away so I rarely used the spray.I like the look of the bands. They do not stick out as being bug bracelets, and the ends can be cut down after you tie them. I found them to be very gentle on the skin, as I had no markings or reactions after wearing them. I would recommend using these wristbands with bug spray on your clothing, if needed. While they worked well for me, I did supplement them (albeit rarely) with spray when needed. The spread of mosquito-borne diseases is a public health concern, and not something to be taken lightly.
Aliza Groman –
In my home in Mexico I usually get stung daily by mosquitoes. 20-30 bites, every day, mostly on feet-ankles-legs. So when I knew I was traveling to India and Thailand, countries with a simillar mosquitoe problems and an added issue of Malaria I knew I had to get protection.So I bought these mosquitoe bracelets.I put 1 on my ankle, and 1 one my wrist. Then swtiched them for new ones after 9 days, same spots.I did get bitten a few times. Maybe 5 bites in the 20 days I was there. Which is much lower than I anticipated. So I was relieved.I would recommend using these bracelets in addition to a spray on repellent, and it should work wonders.If youre traveling to countries with mosquitoes and deadly diseases, get these bracelets.
Simone Rister –
Worked great! Bummer each bracelet only lasts for a few days… but it did the trick. No bug bites!
Marica Frix –
Nice looking stylish bracelet with the added effect of an all natural bug/mosquito repellent. I am allergic to mosquito bites and really need something to keep them away but I hate the toxic chemical sprays and lotions that are available. This smells nice (sort of lemon/citronella) and is kind to my sensitive skin. I think if I am in the woods hiking or picnicking I would also where one on my ankle to repel bugs. It was easy to put on without any help. I left a little slack when tying it on so I can remove when taking a shower. Great product. I am sure Ill be needing more of these throughout the summer season.
Jamie Trisler –
Pretty impressed with how well these work. The mosquitos tend to stay away from my grandkids when they are wearing these. My 2 yr old granddaughter will actually ask to have her bracelet on to keep the bugs away. Will be buying more as they got wet and seem to have lost effectiveness after a few water table playdays!
Saran Varnes –
Scent was pleasant but wish it lasted longer.
Danyell Mccaughey –
I am usually the favorite target for mosquitoes and I hate bug spray. My son has similar issues. Ive tried all types of lotions, candles, natural repellents, oils, etc in an attempt to avoid spray. We used these bracelets recently on a hike at Amicolola Falls. I wore one as a bracelet and one as an anklet, as did my daughter. My son wore a bracelet and we placed the trimmed ends from our bracelets in his pockets. None of us were bitten. We arent wearing them continuously, though they are comfortable and I wouldnt mind wearing it all the time during the summer. I try to keep the bracelets in the pouches when we arent wearing them so I think theyll last a while. So far, theyre the best option Ive found and theye a great deal for the price.
Ashton Flach –
Great for our camping trip. The kids liked them and it was nice that they could wear them in the water! They looked good and the bugs stayed away!
Candace Gesell –
It is more stylish than most mosquito repellent bracelets. It would work great for a camping trip. I spend a lot of time outside, two weeks just isnt long enough. Plus I do dishes at work, so maybe it lasted a week. Did not get bit the whole time I wore them though.
Floyd Machin –
These were great, discreet, non-smelly ways to protect us against mosquitos. Wore them in Thailand and didnt get a single bite while wearing them (and got one bite when I forgot to put mine on around dusk). The packaging says they are effective for about two weeks but we changed them, or doubled up, after a week. Highly recommend and will buy again.
Mora Monzo –
We took a honeymoon trip to Thailand and bought these prior to leaving. My husband thought this purchase was all for not because nothing and I mean nothing stops Mosquitoes from biting me. But these wrist-lets definitely did the trip. I did not get a single mosquito bite in a place where that is almost unheard of. I swear by these and am planning on purchasing for my upcoming Mexico trip.
Domitila Justin –
Ive never used a bug repellant bracelet before so I have nothing to compare it to but these smell awful to me. Like, headache inducing awful, which I understand is the point, to make you unappealing to those annoying blood suckers. That being said, after a bad experience with black flies on a trip to China I needed to try something preventative. Ive been wearing them on my ankles 1) to minimize the smell and 2) because that is where I tend to get bitten. So far so good, only a few bites but a huge improvement from my previous trip. I was hoping for more of a citronella smell, less chemical, but overall Im happy with them. They also look much nicer compared to the other repellant bracelets on the market.
Elnora Guyer –
I really like the material these are made from. They hold up well and work as expected in defending against mosquitoes.
Latrisha Frese –
Traveled to Belize and they were amazingly effective.
Debby Ziglar –
Awesome. Used it in Costa Rica and did not get bitten. So much better than spraying nasty chemicals on my skin.
Cornell Thigpen –
We bought these in an 8-pack for our trip to Thailand (aka mosquito land) and they worked amazingly! I am usually a bug magnet and get eaten alive but these worked great! My husband and I always kept one on a wrist and one on an ankle. I got two bug bites the whole trip on my ankle, and that was when I took the anklet off to shower! They smell pleasant, like citronella and the repellant on them seems to last a very long time. They are pretty cute too and unisex. Highly recommend for any bug magnets like me!P.S: If we were ever going to an extremely mosquito-heavy zone (like this elephant sanctuary in the picture), I used a combination of Off! mosquito spray with deet, TerraShield on my pulse points, and these bracelets just to be safe. But even when I just had the bracelets on and no sprays, I never got bit!
Shanna Clinger –
I love these mosquito bracelets. They work extremely well in NW Georgia, which is loaded up with biting bugs. Nothing even buzzes me when I wear them.
Alida Fairfax –
Used last summer on a African Safari, only one in group that didnt get any insect bites! Going back this year and ordered them again! Excellent product!
Loni Lepe –
Amazing! They look good, work perfectly. I bought one for each oneif my family!
Rosalinda Walburn –
Like others, I hate being covered in spray or powders for protection from insects so the bracelet is a great idea. Wish I had these available when I was a kid. Ill be making great use of these this spring and summer!
Florentina Chausse –
Seemed to keep bugs away
Tonya Feher –
I purchased these in preparation for a trip to Belize. Im still currently in Belize and Ive worn them everyday except yesterday. I only have a couple bites but Im not sure if they are from mosquitoes or not. Ive also been using a soap and balm for extra protection just to cover all my bases. The bracelet looks cool and Ive been wearing it in water while swimming (caves, ocean, pool). I like this repellent routine so I plan to continue to buy these bracelets before travel to central/South America, Caribbean, and regular old camping in the states.
Valene Frizell –
Good product. Strong scent when you first take it out of the package, but it gets better. Seemed to work well. Good seller. Fast delivery.
Ellen Otter –
Loved these! My husband and I went to Costa Rica in February and wore one on our wrist and ankle just to be on the safe side. NO BITES. We did not use any other repellent. You can adjust the size due to the tie feature and the black leather is band doesnt look like your typical bug repellent bracelet. Will definitely purchase again when needed.
Elden Prudhomme –
Looks like a decorative bracelet and protects against bites. I used it during the hike in the forest. No bites.
Karlyn Narron –
They dont tie to your wrist very well. They are too big for my wrists but fit my husband fine.
Beatrice Barb –
WORKS AD DESCRIBED SEEMS TO DO WHAT THEY SAY IT DOES
Eilene Giuliano –
The original Kinder Mosquito Bug bracelets are awesome as they look like ordinary fashion bracelettes. Very bohemian chic. It says Im too cool for West Nile.”The product doesnt have a smell. I have some bands that do lessen the attacks of mosquitos on my persons but they make us all smell bad. I remember back in the day when all we had was OFF spray and we doused our bodies with it like a prayer.If you cannot tell Im terrified of mosquitoes and all the sorrow they bring but I feel safe and protected and a little bit hot rocking these.”
Jacqulyn Nolette –
Smells nice, and seems moderately effective. Its pretty stylish too.
Chere Swords –
Color choices are great for adults and children. Stylish and better than an uncomfortable spray.
Summer Groom –
Worth the purchase. Smell not unpleasant.
Gretchen Hinchey –
Purchase them for my daughter she likes them a lot bought a set last year and she asked if I could get her some for thus year
Socorro Hackbarth –
These are great! When I go outside and feel bugs starting to nibble, I just put 1 bracelet on my wrist and 1 on my ankle and never get bothered again. Plus they look really cute!
Shantelle Aguon –
Worked great on our camping trip. I wore it around my ankle. Didnt take it off when we went to the lake and it still worked after swimming all day.
Davina Odonoghue –
look good, well made, will try in the jungles of Thailand
Donette Schleusner –
Product worked as described. Arrived timely.
Tori Beaudreau –
My daughter is living in Brazil for 18 months and she loves these bracelets. She asked me to send her more. She said they work awesome and really have helped with the huge mosquito program they have there.
Carri Pichette –
came in a timely manner and they look great, one would never know they were repellent. they are very fashionable and were on our way to Tahiti.. a great buy.. thank you
Talia Vibbert –
These ankles are cute and easy to reuse and best of all – they actually work!!! Gave half to my Mom who is a mosquito magnet and she never got bit once!!! They last a long time, at least several weeks. You can wear them as ankles after the scent is gone but Im going to order the stuff to resoak them as well. Excellent quality. What a great buy!
Ronni Froelich –
Used this in Costa Rica. I was not bitten once and people with me who did not have a bracelet where bitten several times. This worked great and I would definitely purchase again
Jesusa Mccammon –
Have used and re-used for working on lawns, makes mosquitoes, gnats, and flies, even wasps avoid me‚Äî and normally they love biting me or stinging! Just so long as I don‚Äôt disturb the wasps nest it‚Äôs great. Strong essential oil smell but after a while it‚Äôs easy to get used to it. Animals don‚Äôt like it so have to clean up after, but much easier and better to cuddle and comb when I‚Äôm not scratching! So happy with these
Latarsha Cheeseman –
I bought two sets of these for my husband and I to take to Costa Rica last week along with a bottle of¬†Repel 94108 100 Insect Repellent Pump Spray, 98.11-Percent DEET, 4-Ounce, and we were both delighted to make it through the week with no mosquito bites at all. We wore these through the Rain Forest in the Arenal Volcano area and through the Tropical Forest in Manuel Antonio. Since we did use two products, I cannot say which one was the better performer, but we did wear these all of the time for the whole eight days and the Repel we only used sporadically. The smell isnt bad at all (actually, I kind of liked it), and they look just like leather bracelets you see all over the place. I got the red for myself and the brown set for my husband, and they both looked nice (much better than the plastic versions of these). We hope to take the kids to Belize this year, and I will definitely purchase more for that trip. No Zika virus here!
Margeret Coster –
Silas Usher –
Good quality, arrived as advertised. They seem to work better when your body heats up activating the oils in the bracelet, but it is not an end all be all repellent. My wife made some essential oil repellent that we sprayed on three days after we started wearing them, let them sit overnight and that seemed to add to their effectiveness. Using this method I can see these bracelets lasting quite a while.
Arcelia Hagopian –
These bands actually work. Wore it to the dog park 3 times now and nobig problems.
Sandee Pan –
I bought them for a trip to Belize in May. I chose these because all the reviews were good. I liked that they looked like rope bracelets and not mosquito bands.
Karan Beaudreau –
Worked well in Mexico great product
Julio Cockrum –
Worked great on my arms doubled up in the Caribbean. I also wore them on my ankles a little too late, so I can‚Äôt tell whether or not they worked as well and I continued to get bitten on my feet regardless of the bracelets and OFF. But, the mosquitoes love me.
Rosina Scherrer –
Surprisingly, it seems to work. Not one bite.
Azalee Woodfork –
These little guys are the best! I spent a week in Thailand, was outdoors 90% of the time and got maybe 5 mosquito bites. Now I will admit that wore two around my wrist, two around my ankle, and used a spray mosquito repellent, BUT Im sure these at least contributed to the mosquitos thinking twice about biting me. Also, it didnt hurt that theyre pretty adorable. They do have a slight smell, but nothing too noticeable!
Debera Danko –
Very nice leather like bands. Even after smelled went away I kept it on, it looked nice and did its job, we used them on our ankles foe the low mosquitoes in PR. would buy again
Jeanna Chunn –
Needed these for Nicaraguan trip and now that we are back and 2 weeks have past I am still wearing it because it looks so cool. Thanks
Maryrose Ashmore –
Great product. Havent used it yet.
Arlene Kentner –
Well see how it works . I will be using it next month and the other one wi be used by my mother she is highly appetizing to mosquitoes so well see if it works for her.
Genoveva Koning –
Bought these bracelets for a 2 week trip in Southeast Asia, wore one bracelet the whole time (and gave the others to friends) and had NO problems with mosquitoes what-so-ever. I noticed other people with dozens of bites all over their arms and legs. Normally I like things scent-free and these bracelets have a noticeable odor – not a bad smell, but you notice it especially when you open the pack. I wore the bracelet constantly (not in the shower) but had no problems with any skin irritation. Ill probably order more bracelets for the summer – love this product!
Billye Alfred –
THESE WORKED! I figured they would ward off some bites, but my mom nor I got a single bite between us! We are both very susceptible to mosquito bites so purchased these for our trip to Punta Cana. We wore them in and out of the pool, on our excursions (basically through a jungle), and on the beach. We never took the same bracelet off for our 4-day trip and remained bite-free. I will buy these again!
Tobie Burd –
Comfortable. Strong smell, although not unpleasant to myself or those around me. Easy to take on and off.
Branda Hullett –
Loved this product! We primitive camped on an island off the coast of Va in June, which may qualify us for a medal, and had no issues with mosquitos. There were plenty buzzing around, which was a nuisance, but no bites which needed scratching. The green head flies would lite but would not drill for a meal either. I wore 1 on my ankle and 1 on the opposite wrist and had no issues.
Jess Kell –
I bought these for a beach trip over the summer. They work pretty well, however they do not work after lots of time in the water, as expected. The smell is not too strong. I would buy them again, maybe in different colors.
Elmo Mullet –
Love the colors and will add to my outfits without the direct intent of warding off mosquitoes!
Sharie Kinch –
Bought these for a trip to Africa. And while it wasn‚Äôt particularly buggy while I was there, I didn‚Äôt have any issues with bugs and they look cute. Pretty strong citronella smell so minus one star for that.
Alden Mcinnis –
Works pretty well. Smells good and looks cute on my ankle or wrist
Vickie Borth –
I got these to repel mosquitoes, and they work great!I super-love how they are inconspicuous. They seem like theyre just a fashion bracelet. So my kids are willing to wear them (they dont feel self-conscious that their peers will know their mom is making them wear a bug bracelet).
Ok Freshour –
Bracelets seem to provide protection. They will bleed color onto your skin if you are sweating. The initial odor out of the back is rather intense.
Irwin Dye –
Easy to tie on. Worked well.
Melany Atkison –
Worked for me but unfortunately not my dog.
Stephania Stillson –
My daughter and I purchased these along with a bug spray for our 5 week trip to India. We had several people ask if wed purchased them while there as they did look similar to bracelets we saw. We typically wore one on each ankle as wed heard mosquitoes can hang out in low, cool areas.We took them off when we showered and changed them after a week. We thought we could spray them to recharge or freshen them up if we needed to as they would absorb a spray.Between the spray and these bracelets, we didnt really get any bites so they must have worked well.
Divina Holcomb –
love them for their look – havent tried them because I gave them as a gift in a pregnancy basket.
Miranda Dyal –
These work really well! I spend a lot of time by the water and was really surprised how well this works. I wear one bracelet around my ankle when I am outside and it does a really well job of keeping the mosquito away. I do have to note, I do not wear perfumes, body lotions or scents when I am know I will be around mosquito which I think makes this product TONS more effective but it can not over power if someone else doesnt follow that same no scent rule and they are around you at a cookout. Overall, I would 100% recommend this product and the scent is not bad or over powering either!!
Shae Acton –
Purchased these for my wife and when she goes out she uses them as an anklet. So far, no mosquito bites when she wears them.
Oretha Joe –
Repelled the bugs and looked fashionable!
Millicent Belli –
Still got a mosquito bite here and there (I ordered 4 bracelets, wore three at all times; one on my wrist and two on my ankle) but overall -I got bit less than what I normally do. I even got compliments on the bracelets! They were shocked when I told them that they were mosquito repellent bracelets!
Idella Grimshaw –
Arrived promptly. Im giving these just the 4 stars as I have not yet used them. They are quite good looking & youd never know they have a purpose. I bought them for a November trip to the Southern, Eastern coast, (South of K.Kona), of the Big Island where they sometimes have mosquitoes I am told..
Jolynn Borja –
Worked well and looked cute
Hunter Bouyer –
Kept mosquitos off.
Tashia Ridgley –
These actually worked for us. Camping in the Sierra Nevadans in California. Lots of those mosquitos. My husband and I wore them for 5 days and not one bite. We usually get a dozen or so in the 5 days.
Veronika Malek –
Im always the one who gets bitten by mosquitos First! But NOT when I wear these. They ACTUALLY work … just have to remember to put them on by the time mosquitos are active! Highly recommend!!
Zachery Gimenez –
Helped with the mosquitos on my trip to Thailand, was surprised how long they lasted.
Celena Herzog –
Easy to use and reuse with the resealable bag.
Kaylene Perin –
I must say I did not believe this was going to work but it sure did. I use it while Im playing sports or running by the river and I use to return with bites all over me. Since I started using this, I have not had any issues. I highly recommend this to anyone who spends their time outdoors.
Elvis Sarcone –
I love the idea of using a natural product that doesnt leave residue on my skin. Honestly its hard to review it, though because I would have no idea if I would have been bitten had I not wore them. I wore them on Halloween night while trick or treating with the kids and I wasnt bitten. So, Im pretty sure it helps. Will keep using.
Glynis Levy –
my boyfriend and i were taking an eastern caribbean cruise and wanted to avoid getting the mosquito borne virus, chikungunya. we wore the bracelets as anklets everyday and throughout the salt water, sand, and sunscreen- they maintained their fragrance and we had no bug bites while wearing them. very stylish as well.
Sandy Knisley –
The best is the easy and effective
Katie Minch –
Good product and Gerardo look
Lavona Pedro –
This product is awesome. The smell is not bad for you personally but it does what it stated. I bought to take a trip to the Dominican Republic to avoid mosquitoes bites and it worked perfectly. This will be in my list for the next trip out of the country.
Joe Tuck –
This seemed to work well. I have really sensitive skin and didnt have any reactions to the bracelet, which I was glad for! The smell is very strong, but it works to keep the bugs at bay.
Tisa Duchesne –
Bracelets are great! If I didnt have them I think Ill have more mosquitos bites!
Shavonda Tomasek –
Spring has finally sprung here in Alabama, so I was anxious to try these bug bracelets. We have about a week of mild weather, then summer hits with a bang, and brings all the critters with it. So far I havent been bothered by any bugs while wearing the bracelet, the only reason I didnt give a 5 star is that the heavy influx of mosquitos hasnt started yet, so I will have to wait and see if it works as well when theres more to defend against. This is soooo much better than yucky sprays!
Logan Orear –
I like the style and looks, not some bright colored plastic thing,I am testing these for a future trip to Mexico,Works great, on My second set. Not a bite yet. TJ
Amber Salmons –
I really love these we live up towards Mt saint Helens and camp alot and these work amazing. And they look like super cute bracelets. My bf also loves them and we will be getting more for sure
Gerard Jozwiak –
great product. My friends were getting ate-up by mosquitos during our trip to Jamaica but not me. Not one single bug bite. I wore one on my ankle and the other one on my wrist
Cherilyn Wragg –
Work really well. My kids loved them. A lot better than having to reapply bug spray. Less messy too.
Nestor Winstead –
Definitely did the trick…
Rasheeda Haggett –
its working so far! – great colors too.
Leah Kleinschmidt –
Came quickly and seemed to work pretty well. I would purchase again!

I bought these for myself and 3 other family members, I wore mine the whole time we were in Panama (in the jungle on some days) and did not get one bite! I usually get eaten alive. I wore it on my ankle and did swim in it on a couple of occasions and it still worked! I would highly recommend these.
Lilli Mcadam –
With the Zika virus a real threat, I am looking forward to using these on my vacation in the Caribbean this summer. Its nice that they just look like a stylish leather bracelets. But they are actually mosquito repellents! I love to travel and most of my vacations take me to the tropical weather, and along with that comes the unwanted pests who live and breed in those areas. I did try them weekend and so far so good! It seems like they would have no problem fitting both kids and adults. . Added bonus they are Deet free.
Phuong Dionne –
I live in Virginia where the summers are humid and the mosquitos are rampant. My apt backs up to a wooded area, and I have this awesome patio, but I cant spend more than a few minutes out there at a time before Im eaten alive (I guess Im just so sweet!). Anyway, Im a pretty avid reader and writer, and I love to work on the patio. My cat chills out there, and my dogs love to watch people walk by, but none of the citronella candles seem to do it for me. I got these bracelets, but I was a little skeptical. If nothing else, I figured theyd look cool as anklets. But to m surprise, they worked wonderfully! Now I can spend the cool hours of the evening on my patio without worrying about mosquitoes! I will certainly be stocking up on them for the rest of the summer for hiking, picnics, and long dog walks! These will definitely make the summer months more pleasant!
Gary Bartol –
Still got bit with this thing on but it had arrived in time for my trip
Jenelle Comeau –
Great product! Glad I bought it!, Helped keep bugs at bay in Bora Bora 🙂
Christia Ries –
Really nick to have a cool looking bracelet that protects. You can only smell the repellant ifyour wrist is by your nose. I forgot I was even wearing them
Jonah Kivett –
Very cool idea, comfy and it worked
Jannette Morlock –
We bought these because we get eaten alive just sitting on the porch at night. The first set (brown) worked wonders. Wore for the full 14 days and received only 1 bite and that was on the last day. We had spent the first three days of these in water paddle boarding and wind surfing. They still worked after hours in the water. The black set though did not last as long. I received many bites with that color. Did not even go in the water for the first 5 days of wearing it. Maybe it was a dud? Got a second set for another couple weeks of camping. Recommend but not the black style.
Renna English –
Nice looking bracelets and they seem to keep the bugs at bay!
Luise Esteves –
They are nice… I have been wearing them 2 days ago… and they are working
Barb Oestreich –
I wasnt bitten by anything on a trip to Texas wearing them, so I believe they worked!
Eldora Landen –
This bracelet does work better than the standard citronella candle but it loses its effectiveness after a few weeks. If you really want effective protection against mosquitoes, buy some insect repellent spray. The pros about this product is that its stylish, the smell isnt that strong, and you dont smell all chemically.
Glen Youngberg –
Fun and practical. Works well and looks cool (-:
Deon Schacher –
These bracelets are the best highly recommend it
Teresita Escalona –
Excellent choice for hot outdoors. We wear 2 at a time- wrist and ankle. Always great!
Thi Quisenberry –
You the it on and forget about it. Every once in a while you get a whiff of the pleasant scent and are reminded that you are protected. Seems to be quite good at repelling mosquitoes.
Bettina Condie –
Works like a charm! It cleared the sea of bugs flying around me like Moses parting the Red Sea. No joke.
Kay Trial –
Very effective. Even the guys on our trip wore these and preferred these over similar vibrant colored ones. Low scent a must have for all on vacation
Kaila Croker –
Theyre a bit bigger for my wrist, but they work! (and thats what matters the most)
Fatimah Ridgley –
Worked beautifully in Cancun and looks stylish!
Meredith Bonfiglio –
Great bracelets works much better than the usual plastic bracelets and prettier too.
Tereasa Mcmakin –
I liked how well these worked to keep the bugs off and they look really nice compared to the plastic cord. My only complaint is that it didnt last as long as it claimed.
Deanne Hollinger –
My daughter wore them all summer. One on her arm and one on her ankle and never got bothered by mosquitoes or gnats!We are very pleased with this product and will be purchasing another come Spring!!
Ayana Matula –
I took these to Brazil and I was not bitten once by a mosquito. They work great.
Breana Done –
I hate to wear bug spray because the smell irritates my sinuses. So gave these are try and I wasnt disappointed. Theden bands are a fashionable way to keep mosquitoes away. While these bands do have a strong smell, it doesnt irritate my sinuses like the sprays do.
Robyn Garland –
I got these to wear at an outdoor lakeside wedding in June. I was 7 months pregnant at the time and wanted to avoid bites. The bracelets look cute but have a very strong smell, especially while having an already heightened sense due to pregnancy. While it did not keep the gnats away, I had no bites after being out all afternoon and evening.
Ray Cotto –
I like to think these work. I had one on my wrist and one on my ankle. depending on where you are going, theres nothing stopping the mosquitoes from getting you. I went to Vietnam and was fine with these on from Saigon, Nha Trang, Da Lat, Vung Tau and then we got to Ben Tre and all hell broke out with the mosquitoes. Although I use a combination of Sunblock that had Citronella oil in it and add citronella oil to my shampoo for extra protection. I definitely had few bites than the rest of my party I was with.
Jettie Monsour –
It works. Yesterday was hell since I had been bitten by hundreds of mosquitoes. Today, I can breathe again. Those mosquitoes stay away from me. I wear one on my wrist and one on my ankle. Great repellent even for babies. Im in Texas.
Sonja Gaccione –
I live in Florida and just walking outside in summer makes you bait. I despise messy oils unless I am going to be outside a long time. I plan to give two of these to my son for his stroller and keep two for use at my house. They are nice looking bracelets and will be handy especially for the shorter trips outside. I am keeping one at the front door area and one out back. Right now there are no mosquitoes because it is not yet hot and wet enough but they are coming and I am prepared.
Petronila Greaver –
This was worn by both my daughter and myself on a cruise to Haiti. Neither of us got a single mosquito bite. It is a comfortable bracelet and has a pleasant smell .Not too strong like some citronella ones. Like it and will get again. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B072DTHCV7/ref=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_0
Felton Knickerbocker –
LOVE THESE! I like that they look like bracelets you would actually wear vs the plastic coil kind. I bought for a trip to Cancun and they stayed on the whole time. I think they worked? I didnt get bit my any bugs and they dont have a strong smell.
Tisa Coleman –
The mosquito bracelets are great. I bought them for a recent trip to Mexico and I didnt get any bites. They not only work but a seriously stylish. I still wear mine and my friend even wants one now because its a cool bracelet.
Hilario Hyland –
I am a runner and I am bothered by bugs as I run. I wore this band on my wrist and wasnt bothered a bit by any flying insects! As a bonus, the band doesnt smell like bug repellent, but has a very pleasant aroma! I like the fact that its all natural ingredients and Im not wearing a pesticide on my arm.
Zina Wei –
Outstanding product. Im allergic to mosquito bites and hate to bathe in Deet. These bands are effective. I wear them around my and and wrist, and presto I become Cool Grandma!
Lena Frenkel –
There was a notable difference in the number of bites we got when we wore these plus DEET vs wearing DEET alone. I wouldnt say it was a big enough difference I would trust them to stand on their own for full protection without any DEET but we were also in a mosquito dense area. Be warned, they smell quite strongly, which can be a bit socially awkward if your travels will also take you into enclosed spaces like caves or elevators.
Benedict Agbayani –
Did the trick. Were nice looking as well
Omar Rosendahl –
Just what I was hoping for!!!!
Darcel Hartgrove –
Stylish and kept mosquitoes away. Thank you.
Janelle Petroski –
I used it while out in the woods. Its a great product and worked really well.
Ai Bublitz –
I havent watched my sons skin too closely to see if a mosquito would fly near the bracelet and then fly away in anguished flight of the smell of citronella, but i mean it makes me feel better to have it on. 10/10 would buy again 🙂
Dorthea Buffum –
helped me out on vacation.
Hermila Ragusa –
I received my mosquito repellent bracelets a couple of days ago. I can say they are really great looking for a bug repellent bracelet. It basically looks like a regular bracelet you may find in the store. I wore it outside and did not get any mosquito bites. To be honest Im not sure many mosquitos are out yet, so I cant say officially how well they work. But I love the look so I hope they work well!
Tonita Minarik –
I was in Myanmar and Laos and used them the entire 19 days. We were on lakes and rivers. I only got one bite the entire time. Everyone else on the trip was putting on DEET….they still got a few bites! I just reordered for my Niece for her trip to India as she didnt want to take Malaria pills. Great product.
Cory Borland –
I was so happy when my Kiven Mosquito Bug Repellent Faux Leather Bracelet Band arrived because I live in Florida and we always have something trying to bite you. It is so nice to not have the hash chemical of Deet in them. I put it on and went outside with success, no bites. I wear it around my ankle so it doesnt get in the way of working in the garden. I am so happy with my Kiven Bracelet and will recommend it to all my family and friends. So nice to no be itching all the time, not to mention all the diseases out there now days. I feel safe wearing this
Maribel Manners –
I usually get eaten alive by mosquitos and with the help of plenty bug spray & these bands Im going home with only one bite.
Eldon Clute –
Delivery as expected. Great product!
Joslyn Puett –
Seems to work just fine!
Rosaline Drakeford –
Good Quality , does what is needed.i wasnt able to test it really hard , but it works.
Rebbeca Bezanson –
Got these for vacation to the Dominican Republic since I usually get eaten alive by mosquitoes. And I worn it the whole time I was there and did not once get bite by one. I wore mine every where and even went in the water with it and didnt have any problem
Enid Labarge –
Look super cute and worked well on a trip to Thailand. We werent bit. We also sprayed ourselves with bug spray in certain areas. I would buy these again.
Terrell Groseclose –
They work pretty good but they look a lot better than the phonecord ones.
Onita Mcmorrow –
took these to Jamaica. pretty string repellant scent. you can get it a bit wet and it will still work. not. a. bite.
Florene Sligh –
These worked great, but be sure to not get them wet. They will stop working if you get them wet
Dagny Tullos –
These bracelets work and are quite fashionable. My whole family wears them, even the guys. The price point makes them a no brainer. You cant price tag in peace of mind. Keep the mosquitos away and look cool at the same time! Will order more of these.
Wayne Osborne –
We bought a bunch of different mosquito repellent products for our trip to Thailand and these worked the best out of everything! They fit basically any size wrist, are easy to get on and off and the citronella smell is subtle. Recommend keeping them in the resealable bag they come in between uses to prolong the life of the bracelet.
Neda Corrales –
Works extremely well to keep Mosquitos away. I can spend time outside again which is wonderful.
Spring Skipworth –
Haven‚Äôt tried them yet but think it‚Äôs a great idea
Rogelio Mccumber –
Slick and stylish! I wore these on my trip to Indonesia and didnt get beat up by bugs at all! I was able to wear them for multiple days at a time and they still seamed to be effective.
Eustolia Proctor –
Yesenia Rothfuss –
Much better than the clunky plastic bug bracelets they sell in hardware stores. Comfortable enough to wear all day long and had a pleasant smell as well. It kept the biters away too. I will definitely buy again.
Ima Terry –
Came on time and kept the bugs away!
Santo Walck –
Very effective product and I would absolutely recommend this to anyone.
Tambra Elston –
It help me Im be buying this again
Reena Cardon –
Received the bracelets. Havent used them yet but they look great. Just what I wanted
Hiram Pickell –
The product worked well, however, the repellent smell is kind of strong so I wore it on my ankles. That worked very well.,
Janeen Cue –
I used this band in Costa Rica and NIcaragua and am happy to say I had no bites. I like the braided look.
Stella Shur –
Seemed to work well to ward off mosquitoes but as it gets wet it stretches and the knot comes loose. I would probably recommend not wearing in the water even though it says its waterproof
Harlan Chow –
Nice quality and a really nice fit and scent
Fritz Woodside –
Karol Eells –
We used this on our trip in Italy. Not once did we get bitten by mosquitos during our 2 week trip. This is a cool product.
Verlene Jeon –
I was very happy to find this all natural insect repellent product what a convenient way to wear the essential oils to repel insects without all the toxic chemicals a great option for kids or anyone trying to get away from chemicals. May not be large enough to accommodate very large wrists, however it could also be pinned to clothing as an alternative.
Marta Carrizales –
These are a great alternative to the plastic spiral mosquito repellent bracelets! They work great- but dont look like mosquito repellent bracelets!Would have easily given 5 stars if they were more adjustable for smaller sized wrists and came with a storage bag for in between uses.
Syble Schlichting –
These work great. Theyre not in the way & are very convenient. Very comfortable & have no odor. Durable & long lasting. Plus they look good too! Quick delivery in secure packaging. Would definitely buy from this company again.
Serafina Mauricio –
These are really cute and you cant even tell that there helping you with getting mosquitoes bites. They really do help. Ive gone to mexico and o get bit a lot but now I dont have to worry about getting bit again
Bambi Meier –
BRACELETS LOOK VERY NICE, A SEEM TO WORK. WEAR ONE ON WRIST AND ANOTHER ON THE OPPOSITE ANKLE AND HAVENT BEEN BITTEN. GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE ALSO. THANKS
Anastacia Touchet –
Very happy with the bug repellent wristbands! One week in Thailand so far during rainy season and no mosquito bites yet!
Louella Wiebe –
it work and no nasty smell
Sudie Bonomo –
Great for repelling insect bites honestly. I didnt give it a 5 because the tie straps fit a little weird for my taste but other than that, they work. The sent is nice and I didnt get not 1 mosquitoe bite while I had it on. I used one for 2 days straight and the protection did last. Great product, would definitly purchase again for my next outdoors adventure with the family.
Cyrstal Pugh –
The bracelet worked perfect for our camping trip. We had no problems with those flying pests while wearing the bracelets and they were attractive to look at
Tai Engler –
The seller delivered it right on time, and it appears just as advertised. TY
Tifany Reader –
as advertised, excellent service
Patrick Casto –
Bought the 2 brown and 2 red pack for a recent trip to Thailand. They worked amazingly! The first day the scent is really strong so make sure to put them on your no dominant hand. I used these bracelets along with deet free bug spray. My only complaint is that the red one bleeds ALOT after getting wet. I will order again but only the brown
Lillia Warshaw –
This works great. I did not get bitten once while using this. I wish it came with re-sealable baggies though and also that there was an easier way to close it. I often have only one hand available, while holding my baby with the other as we are heading out outside, so its a little difficult to tie it while holding her. Would be nice if I could just slip it on.
Cari Holl –
Very stylish and they work
Georgiann Sartin –
The bracelets really work!
Nigel In –
There are several reasons I love these bands. One is that they are the most fashionable band for an adult versus the bright coil bands. The adjustable size fits comfortably while also fitting my daughters ankle or wrist easily. I have only been wearing one around my ankle and that seems to be working to stop all bites. Yay!!! I also like the scent. No matter what band you wear, there is a strong smell at first. Most all bands are so strong I cannot wear them but the smell, albeit strong at first is a nice combination of the natural repellants so I can tolerate wearing them. The strength dies down after about 2 hours then I dont notice it at all. But, they still work for many days after I put them on. I will definitely buy these again!
Whitney Bitton –
these bracelets work very well, and because theyre cool looking my kid will actually wear them!
Giuseppina Rieke –
Item works great, got this for my daughter to wear while she plays softball.
Glennie Sainz –
These worked very well for my children and myself, I even gave a few away. No one had any complaints and the design is nice and subtle.
Jayne Liller –
Quick delivery. Nice design for bracelets and adjustable so can use around ankles or wrists on adults or kids. Good product.
Robin Wojciechowski –
I really like these mosquito repellent bracelets. They are stylish and give you protection. Both adults and kids used them on our vacation and loved them. I like all the colors. I bought the brown and black and the clack and red but will try it the other colors next time. They look very stylish for outdoor camping and hiking.
Jenice Bumbrey –
2 bracelets per pkg, and the scent is very strong, but seems to work.
Amparo Arteaga –
Good product and good seller
Kia Aldrete –
Works perfect on camping trip
Ashely Magnus –
liked these since I did not have to spray myself down and then shower before bed!! also repelled other flying insects which was nice when working outside. I did have to knot the laces to keep from slipping off when I was mowing the yard or doing other yardwork. not an inconvenience to do this tho.
Russel Ellers –
Not only is this bracelet cute but it also keeps the bugs away. There is a herbal smell to it but after 1 day of wearing it the scent is unnoticed. Nothing too strong. Great buy
Tiesha Campanella –
We did a trial with these bracelets to see if they really worked. On the 4th of July each family member put on a bracelet, but we sprayed bug repellant on all of the kids. My husband and I only had the bracelet to protect us. While all of the people near us at the fireworks show complained about the mosquitos none of us got even one bite! After that I was comfortable with just the bracelets on everyone. As long as we wore them, no bites?. They are definitely worth the cost. They are made of real leather and are actually fashionable.
Derick Manly –
Great product and does the job its supposed to do.
Lacresha Schmitmeyer –
received them very quickly. Like that its a bracelets and they offer the protection as well.
Noelle Moffatt –
I used these in combo with Incognito Luxury Citronella Soap for a recent trip to Thailand and Cambodia. The fragrance of this bracelet is quite potent, and wearing this on my wrist was almost nauseating. Once relocated to my ankle, it was better.I think this combo worked quite well, as I only had 3 minor bites by the end of the 1 month trip. The bracelet is very attractive looking, and if not for the overpowering smell, I would have preferred to wear it on my wrist.
Leonora Weisberg –
I work in an out door restaurant and the no see ums are bad! The bracelets seem to work just fine. I wear one on my wrist and the other one on my ankle.
Cecily Giunta –
I wore these while in Ghana and never got bit. Super cute too.
Ollie Redfield –
I bought these bracelets because I was afraid to get bite in the Philippines … These actually work and my favorite pet.. They look like regular braided bracelets and not the cheesy colored ones hehe . I recommend these!!!!
Felipa Reza –
Not one bite
Ivan Carasco –
Use one on ankle and one on wrist. Seems to be effective against Vermont mosquitoes. Wanted to purchase more and discovered the price had risen 25%. That was a disappointment.
Edwina Dimauro –
Bought these for the family for camping trip along with the incognito spray and they worked great when you keep re applying every so often. Smells just fine, doesnt leave weird residue and we could see mosquitoes all around us, but they didnt want to bite us.
Tegan Grief –
Love em! Thank you!
Hipolito Cheatham –
Uses in Haiti.. WORKED! No Zika here!!!!
Robby Galyean –
It works great. The scent is strong but not unpleasant. The bracelet is fashionable. Ill be getting some more soon.
Darwin Sessums –
These came in a very timely manner and looked really good. Kept the mosquitoes away while I was in Costa Rica. Get a lot for a very reasonable price! Good value‚Ä¶good product!
Merri Marinaro –
I went to Haiti on a mission trip and used them the entire trip. I did get one mesqui bite but that was all Mesquites are a real health problem in Haiti but I wanted to use something natural and not use Deet!
Loise Knauf –
I love the way they look on. I have not been able to use them yet, so I hope they work well!
Alden Gies –
I bought these with hesitation because they seemed too good to be true but I have been pleasantly surprised with how effective they are! I am the one that always gets bitten more than others and I developed an allergy to mosquito bites several years ago. Mosquito bites are not only annoying but can be painful and nasty to look at so I really wanted something that would be effective but also DEET-free. I traveled to Taiwan a couple months, where I was in very hot, humid, and mosquito-infested areas and bought these before the trip. When they arrived, I noticed that the bracelets were actually pretty stylish but a little annoying with the long straps. The straps do come undone if you dont double-knot them but its not a deal breaker. The smell of the bracelets is not terrible but its certainly noticeable. I brought along my Repel lemon eucalyptus as backup but surprisingly, only had to put it on a couple times. While others in my group got bitten numerous times, I only got 3-4 mosquito bites. I will be buying these again for future trips and would strongly recommend them for anyone who hates using DEET spray or just putting insect repellent all over your clothes and skin. Great product!
Melvina Hougen –
Used these bracelets for a trip to St Croix. They were excellent the whole trip – even after wearing them in the ocean for hours they continued to work and keep the bugs away! HIGHLY RECOMMEND
Chas Follmer –
I love how fashionable they are and they work really well!! Highly recommend and I will be buying the other colors soon!! To Cute!
Jeanne Ulibarri –
Love this! its pretty, it smells good and it does the job of keeping bugs out.
Karl Mccabe –
Love these! I buy them every summer for our camping trips. Always work well.
Carlita Canedy –
This was the best investment. My family and I want to the Dominican Republic and we never got bit.
Evangeline Tester –
Worked great. I went in a bog in estonia with them. No Mosquitos bothered me
Donny Gracey –
Wore this for a week camping, swimming..no bug bites
Corrina Stanek –
Bought these for a vacation to the Dominican Republic. Wore one around my ankle at night and didnt get a single bug bite. I think it was a combination of factors, but these definitely helped!
Kali Brumm –
Worked like a charm. Still cannot believe I was not bitten during my 3 day camping trip. Will definitely buy them again!
Christi Cumbie –
Used this in the Philippines. Kept the mosquitoes away!
Sherie Moone –
These are so cute I might wear it even when the mosquitoes are not out. Some have previously said that the smell was strong however I do not find that to be the case. Easy to wear and have had no trouble with those nasty little pests while wearing the bracelet!
Leonia Mcilrath –
We just got back from Peru and I have to tell you, we didnt have a single bug bite. Everyone I talked to and everything I read said wed be eaten alive this time of year in Peru but these little bracelets must have done the trick! Will buy again.
Franklin Puentes –
Perfect!! These are great. Way better than the plastic bands you can buy. They dont have a strong scent. I am allergic to the material of the plastic ones so I am excited these are leather. Look like a regular bracelet too!! Way better than the smelly bug spray!! Very nice!!
Elbert Yeh –
I bought these for a trip we took to key West in Sept of 2015. I knew we were going to hike through the botanical gardens that had tons of mosquities so since I dont like to put deet on I thought I would give the arm bands a try. So glad I did we walked around for over an hour and did not get bit! We got to enjoy our hike and watched the other people that were there walking so fast so they could get out quick they were getting bit so much. Def will keep some of these in supply they really worked!
Rosenda Warthen –
As my totally delicious (to the mosquitos) daughter transitions from preteen to teen and heads off to summer camp, these totally cool leather bracelet bug repellent bracelets are a godsend. They look just like the friendship bracelets the kids love.Better still, three generations and a dog wore them on a trip to the desert and no one got bit. Success!These are brilliant!
Marisa Harriott –
Great product. Received promptly.
Anne Braz –
Worked great during my Minnesota summer trip. I am always the one who ends up with bites while everyone else around me is fine but I didnt get bit once during my week stay. I kept it on at all times even while sleeping. The smell is a bit strong but you get used to it and its better that being eaten alive by mosquitoes.
Melissia Farrell –
Great way to protect yourself from insects using essential oils.
Kimberley Pawlik –
Cheree Radtke –
We went on an overnight camping trip and these worked well but as a bracelet it mostly protected our arms. My kids still got bug bites on their necks and faces so we ended up having to use a bug spray as well which is what we were trying to avoid.
Tad Lew –
Much nicer than the plastic types — easier to handle, and last longer.
Sabine Shatley –
Very cute and stylish bands. I bought them for my girlfriends and myself before a recent trip to the Bahamas. We all wore 2 bands around our wrists or ankles. They looked great and Im pretty sure they helped keep the bugs away too.
Errol Pilot –
These were great. We used them while in Cancun in December and we did not get any bug bites. We even wore them on our ankles, and we had no issues. And… they are somewhat fashionable, so we didnt have these obnoxious bracelets that we had to wear. Will definitely buy more during summer season, and when we return to Cancun at the end of this year.
Hee Fouche –
These are good I received them in plenty of time before my trip
Hung Doby –
very effective and clever
Louis Lustig –
Mosquitos love me. I used the bracelets in st. Martin for two and a half weeks this spring. I returned home with less than five bites which is just wonderful for me. I was in Atlantic City for five days and went out without the bands and was attacked immediately. I came home with more bites than I care to count. I am about to order enough Kiaven Bands to last the rest of the summer.
Dell Miramontes –
This really works and without the hazardous chemicals! I can sit outside without worries of being dinner for mosquitos!
Angella Carrier –
We used these in Thailand for a week and never got a bite. Definitely buying again.
Regena Epp –
These little bands worked great. My granddaughter is very susceptible to mosquito bites and she didnt get 1bite while wearing the bracelet.
Trina Scipio –
Paula Copen –
Crysta Caron –
Great product, easy to use and very discreet – as it looks like you are just wearing a leather bracelet.
Ilda Mayon –
I absolutely recommend this product !!! It‚Äôs amazing ?? At first I was very skeptical about it but I am glad I gave it a chance !! AND OMG BEST PURCHASE EVER !! I WE T TO THAILAND ?? FOR 2 weeks and left without ANY MOSQUITO BITES !!I was in Bangkok , Chiangmai , and KRABI and didn‚Äôt get any mosquitos bites !! What I did changed them every 4 days and didn‚Äôt get them wet !! Hope you try them and loved them as much I did !!! ??
Shaunta Guynn –
I did take a couple other forms of bug prevention during my trip to Thailand and Indonesia, but I always had one on my wrist and one on my ankle and I didn‚Äôt have a problem with bugs. I would definitely say this helped, and I am getting them again for my next trip. I feel better with them.
Antone Glennon –
Love! Bought quite a few for a trip to the West Indies and to Maine. I know at least three people (men and women) who used these bracelets from what I bought and then purchased their own. Will be buying again when I run out. Bought brown and gold; men liked brown and women liked gold.
Latoya Lords –
Cute way to help ward off mosquitoes. I wore them after their effectiveness wore off just for the style of it. I would still recommend using bug spray in addition to this though.
Kirsten Seiter –
Love the style and color and love that it has successfully repelled mosquitoes for me (so far so good this NY summer)! This is my second year purchasing these bracelets for summer and Ive gotten them as gifts for friends as well. I will definitely be purchasing more in brown and black.
Cherryl Hachey –
These were convenient, but werent 100% effective.
Patricia Slaymaker –
I purchased these to wear on a mission trip to Haiti and they worked SO WELL. I get eaten alive by mosquitos and wanted to be particularly careful with the Zika Virus going around. I wore one on each wrist and one on each ankle. Not only did they work well, but they were so cute too! No one ever even knew that they were for mosquito repellant.
Lilly Baley –
Simple and effective.
Lanita Huf –
Good product; it does the job, on the pricier end though.
Reggie Pellham –
These look good, have a moderately strong smell, but not unpleasant. Seemed to help. Id wear them again in a mosquito area.
Lucie Palazzo –
Worked very well when my friends and I went to Mexico. We wore them for the whole trip on our ankles since they are waterproof. We went on a boat tour with a lot of small mosquitos and we were bite free!
Gussie Cournoyer –
Was in Brazil for a week and wore one of these. I never got a single bite.
Zachariah Amavisca –
Innovative product, mosquito protection that looks like a leather bracelet! Very unique. Great way to protect yourself from Mosquitos yet looks stylish.
Kemberly Tinoco –
Took them camping and didnt get bite once! I usually come home from camping with more bites than I can count, but not this time. They are stylish and you would never guess they are anything more than bracelet, by they are much more!
Latisha Wick –
My parents and brother said they worked great when they used them on there cruise
Colene Rakowski –
This is my second order for these.My family goes to Key West every year. First time my poor nephew got totally eaten up by the no see ums. It hurt to look at him.The next year I bought these, what a difference.You might get a bite or two, but overall these really do help.Now we all wear them every year.
Alleen Gryder –
These totally work! Wore them camping for 3 days, no bites. On the 4th day I didnt put it on, and got 3 bites:(
Sabrina Matherly –
Madelaine Waggener –
took these with me camping in muggy, buggy Florida. Worked fine, look just like a bracelet, no over powering smell.
Ora Cesare –
Stylish and no issues withbugs while camping for 5 days
Eduardo Bondi –
Good item, but dont wash it aka wear it in the shower as then it will loose its effectiveness. I purchased these for my daughter to wear the entire time she was at summer camp and she was disappointed when they stopped working after the first day – thankfully I sent a backup plan. Id get these for her again but tie them so she could remove them before swimming, etc.
Hassie Maultsby –
Worked great, thanks!

So I was skeptical of the bracelets at first because even if they were soaked in oils that mosquitoes hated, it would only protect my wrist and everywhere else on my body was still vulnerable. Well, I was wrong. This bracelet has a STRONG scent, you can smell the citronella oil immediately. But the cool part is, it doesnt bother me. Or give me headaches. Its just a nice citrus odor and its strong enough you can smell it from about 2 feet away. My house recently has a mosquito invasion so I ordered these to protect myself, I was cooking in the kitchen and saw a mosquito fly towards me and I stayed still to see if the bracelet would work. It hovered above my arm and instead of landing, kept going. This happened again later on where another mosquito was seen flying AWAY from me. It was really cool.BUT I wouldnt rely on these alone for heavily populated mosquito areas (like a camping trip). I would use spray or lotion along with the bracelets. But just using indoors at home or casual outdoor use, these bracelets work great.They are adjustable, you can make it loose or tight, you put the strings through a hook and tie them old-fashioned style. Its easy to put on and take off. And yes, they are very cute and stylish as well which is an added bonus. They look like braided leather bracelets and you can even tie the string to make a cute ribbon if you want. I gave one to my boyfriend as well and it looks like were wearing couple bracelets. Kids or adults, these bracelets are not only stylish but will make mosquitoes steer clear of you!
Shakira Rickert –
I like that these are man-made and not real leather. I hate using DEET and am always looking for natural alternatives, so Im anxious to give the product a try on an upcoming trip to the Caribbean. Ill update when I get back to see if it holds up to the mosquitoes there – they are vicious! As for home in California, they seem to be working just fine

Grazyna Scarboro –
They worked great! I went to Thailand and hiked through the jungle (admittedly with more than one on) and my roommate went to Costa Rica with some. Overall super happy with them!
Aimee Mcclaren –
Great product. I get bitten a LOT and this totally helped
Gerald Capel –
I bought these for my wife for a trip to Mexico. She hasnt tried them yet but they appear to be as pictured and somewhat stylish. she is kind of hippieish so they are right up her alley.
Linnie Marple –
I was getting bit by mosquitoes left and right. I tried mosquito repellent but had a reaction to it. Ive been wearing these bracelets for a few weeks now and have not gotten bit once! THANK YOU!!!!! 🙂
Buster Omar –
Could not find these anywhere locally and these were exactly what I was looking for.
Beverley Nagle –
LOVE THESE!! Stylish, kids liked them, bugs stayed away and I liked how the kids didnt have to worry about taking them off when we were swimming while camping! I will definetly buy these again.
Terence Durgan –
These really worked well for us in Hawaii and lasted very well. My daughter wore one as an anklet and another on her wrist and it definitely kept the mosquitos at bay. She works outdoors at a luau and the bugs were eating her alive until I got these for her. I would definitely buy again.
Jenny Gonyea –
I got 8 of these to share with my friends who traveled to Costa Rica with me for my birthday. We ended up wearing them on our ankles. They went with everything and looked very cool. But the best part is it repelled everything! We never took them off. One girl lost hers while swimming in the ocean and she is the only one who got bit! I definitely recommend these!!!!
Celestina Ault –
I purchased these for my sons trip to Nepal. He says he wore one the whole time he was there and didnt get any type of bug bites. He reported they were comfortable and he hardly noticed he was wearing them.
Katelyn Iorio –
Worked perfectly for our trip to Thailand.
Twyla Macdonnell –
Charita Ewalt –
I wore these in the jungles and on the beaches of Belize. Good mosquito repellant. All natural too
Velda Newby –
Not bad more stylish than anything else.
Nakia Holzwarth –
These work amazing! Definitely wear one on each wrist
Fanny Nalls –
This product met and exceeded my expectations. I wore the bracelets while on a hiking trip through several climates that included a jungle. Specifically, I wore one on my wrist and another on my ankle. While wearing the repellents, I did not experience any insect bites at all. The only minor detail was that at times the bracelets became a little lose and I had to retie them. An add-on to this product is that is has a pleasant scent, not strong or overbearing. Great Product!
Terrence Seay –
I am a cancer survival with lymphadema so I have to be careful about insect bites and harmful chemicals. This product worked great for 1-2 weeks even after wearing it daily in the shower.
Yoko Elzey –
Great product ? and look great!!!
Kelsie Cavanaugh –
Well the insects keep their distance for sure. This is the first summer that I have not been bitten. They do have a strong scent, but it is not terrible. frankly, I rather deal with the smell than get bitten!
Albert Rutigliano –
Lonnie Crigger –
I was very skeptical of this product working as mosquitos tend to eat me alive while camping. I wore a bracelet around my ankle and put a bracelet on all of my kids and one got one bite during the whole weekend camping in the woods. Will purchase more for our kids to take to outdoor camp. Nice to not have to spray or smell like bug spray. These bracelets work!
Tamatha Corner –
We loved these! They were stylish and effective. However if they get wet then their effectiveness seemed to disappear. However I would absolutely buy them again.
Elodia Hutson –
These work great! I love the colors. I love that they are vegan friendly!
Rosalina Bradfield –
These bracelets are cool. They look very fashionable and are great for keeping the bugs away. I was outside for awhile and the bugs kept away and Im the type of person who always gets bit by something. I like how they come in different colors. Seem like they will last at least of couple of times. I didnt really smell a smell like other products.
Ezekiel Overfelt –
This was purchased to be auctioned off at a fundraiser. Bidding was great.
Vanna Seo –
Sanjuanita Satchell –
Seems to work well. Hubby and I wore one on ankle and one on wrist while camping in Maine during black fly season. Liked them well enough to order another set to wear while doing yard work, hiking, etc.Barely fits around an ankle though, and not the easiest things to tie. But Ill take that over stinky, sticky bug spray any day.
Gordon Motto –
A week in the Dominican Republic. Outside all week and not a bite. Others using DEET were bitten. Mild, pleasant odor, which is not noticeable after first day.
Lawerence Nguyen –
AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!! I used this in Thailand and it worked!! One bracelet lasts about 6 days. I definitely will be buying more.
Rebbeca Chapple –
Item Shipped on time. Also these really work. When we had them, we did not have any mosquito bites. the one day that we forgot, each one of us had 2-3 bites.
Omar Rezac –
It worked for me.
Thora Brinkmann –
i tused the bracelet while gardening (hi tick area) wasnt bothered by insects at all. a slight odor but not offensive.
Lang Rayford –
The scent was low and worked well. My daughter loved these as they were stylish as well as worked as promised.
Lorretta Prescott –
Skye Didonato –
Worked just fine, and smelled good.
Darren Wang –
they work really well and stay on wrist well
Chan Tacy –
Bought for a music festival & these did the job.
Petra Yule –
I like to wear these on my ankles and wrists and they look very stylish.
Lyndon Bullion –
Shalon Tidmore –
Worked as expected
Celina Witts –
Great product; and it works. Highly recommend.
Santos Jeanpierre –
Seems to work better than I expected and no Deet on the skin or nasty smell. Being creative, I put one of the bracelets in an area that gets spiders. Thought I would see if it worked on keeping spiders away too.
Wade Oxley –
I live not to far from marsh land so the second the temperature goes above 50 degrees there are mosquitoes everywhere. Ive been searching for a non-spray alternative for my niece and nephew (ages 6 and 2) and I found it with Kinvens Mosquito Repellent bracelets.The bracelets are really cute – a fashionable braided leather that will look great on everyone. My 6 year old niece hates bug repellant spray and I tried to get her to use bug repellent wipes but she refuses, however she thought these bracelets were cute and cant wait to wear them. They are adjustable by way of a slipknot and will fit an array of wrist sizes. They smelled a little like citronella to me but it wasnt a strong or heavy smell.I tested them out on a warm day in my back yard. I had a few friends over and they complained of getting bit by mosquitoes a handful of times. I was wearing one of the bracelets and didnt have a single bite. That impressed me since every spring and summer Im pretty much a walking buffet for mosquitoes. They love me and Im miserable. I was so surprised these worked so well for someone who gets bit up more than others. I only gave these a 4 star rating because the hot summer months is when the huge mosquitoes come out and once I know whether or not these bracelets will repel the big ones I will update my review to reflect.I do recommend these for anyone who is looking for a spray free alternative to mosquito repellents. I know Ill be picking more of these up for the approaching summer months.I received this item at a discount in exchange for an honest review. These words, thoughts and opinions are entirely my own.
Maritza Abbey –
Bracelets worked great on younger kids to help keep mosquito and knats away. It stays in place good, and they enjoy wearing stylish look. Would recommend this for any outdoor activity or yard work,
Julian Fontanilla –
They worked great, looked good wearing them.
Marilee Rexford –
Chin Hearns –
I wore one on my wrist and one on my ankle and not a SINGLE bug bite of any kind for 2 days!!! So glad I have two left. I ordered 4 not knowing….they were cheap so…. super glad I got these. Not tested against end of summer bugs yet but will update post in October… by then weve had horrible bugs in Florida. Well see. Worked great again April bugs!
Ellie Traxler –
Just in time! I received these and we had a nice warm few days and with that comes the Mosquitos.I worn the bracelet both evenings we were out and did not get bitten once unlike several of my friends!I will be purchasing more of these
Cheree Topp –
These are great! I ordered them for a recent trip to Thailand and didnt have any issues with mosquitoes. They do have an odor to them (thats how they work!) but its not too overpowering. I wore them every day for about two weeks, putting them back in the packet at night, and they still look almost new.
Jaymie Bousquet –
Worked great! We spent three weeks on the islands and were never bitten by mosquitoes.
Chrissy Poehler –
So far so good! I usually get eaten alive and i havent so i am going to assume they are working! I got one on my wrist and ankle.
Cyndy Salaam –
My son wore one at a week long summer camp and didn‚Äôt get any bug bites.
So Gleaton –
WORKS!!! Tied these on my wrists and ankles for trip to Oahu. I am VERY allergic to mosquitoes and other bugs — I swell up — and these bracelets really, really worked! I am SO impressed and very thankful to have purchased a product that wasnt just attractive and fairly priced, but effective!
Albina Crisler –
LOVE LOVE LOVE these!!! I am a mosquito magnet and every single time I go outside I get a handful of bites. I went on an hour walk in areas Ive previously received tons of bites and DID NOT RECEIVE A SINGLE BITE because of these bands. My whole family now wears these whenever we go outside and I can not say enough great things about these.
Adolfo Ostendorf –
I went to Belize for 7 days staying in an eco resort in the rain forest. I wore this as a bracelet from day one along with sunblock and bug spray. I still got bites but was the least bit up in out whole group. Later in the week I added one to my ankle because it seemed like my legs were getting the worst of it. I cant say these were the reason I was the lucky one in the group…honestly think the sunscreen was the major player since no one else wore it, but I do think they may have helped. The certainly didnt hurt and they looked like a normal bracelet. No one realized they were for the bugs.
Lakendra Trogdon –
Easily adjustable for children and adults. There is a slight odor and not at all unpleasant.
Tiffanie Yopp –
I liked these a lot! I was able to get these at a discounted price in exchange for an honest review… I got these just in time for a beach trip! I was surprised at how cute the bracelets were ? They do look just like a braided leather bracelet or anklet. Each pack comes with 2, 1 was brown and 1 black which was perfect for men or women. They fit nice and you could adjust/tie it so it fits the way you want it to. They did smell a little stronger than I expected and much more like citronella than the lavender scent described. The smell wasnt too bad and didnt bother me personally. I was able to wear this In an area where there were a lot of mosquitos… Normally I get tons of bug bites but these actually helped! I wore one on my left ankle and during that time I got maybe 2 bug bites on my right leg, a good distance from the bracelet. Everyone else I was with had dozens of bug bites so in comparison I felt like the bracelet was really working. The bracelet did lose a lot of its effect after swimming with it or getting it wet in general… Overall I would definitely buy these again! They worked well and are much more visually appealing than other repellent bracelets out there!
Kasey Silverman –
These are excellent, along with deet spray. I just got back from 7 days in the Costa Rica jungle (1/16/2016). No bites at all. I put one on my wrist and another on my ankle. I went swimming w it and all. But I did use deet spray as well, from head to toe every morning and after each shower. I slept w deet spray on too. No bitessss! Good luck!
Chieko Lipham –
Love these mosquito-repelling bracelets! Have purchased in a variety of packs and colors, and seem to prefer the black and brown aesthetically but each of the bracelets works like a charm. Would recommend a 2-pack per person, and wearing one on an ankle and one on a wrist!
Donya Donelan –
VERY GOOD ITEM I WILL RECOMEN IT
Annabell Ruckman –
I love these! I was on a two week trip to South Africa and not one bite! When I got back and took off the band I had been wearing, I got bitten about eight different times in one night. Put the second band on and no more bites! I will be wearing these all summer. I just wish they were a touch longer. Tying one around my ankle was a bit of a challenge but it fit.
Johanna Feder –
They worked great last time I used them. If you do go into water or get them really wet. Just dry them off and spray them with more bug repellent. The smell isnt too strong.
Coralee Scarbrough –
These are SO aromatic upon first opening however they do the trick to keeps mosquitos off of me & my hubby ride home at night and these have been amazing for him.
Ka Hurwitz –
Seems to keep mosquitoes away so far.
Josefina Matamoros –
Bought these bracelets for my grandchildren to wear while at summer camp. They worked very well!
Louetta Torres –
Loved these, kept all the mosquitoes away when we went to Thailand. Cute too.
Laticia Morning –
These are nice. They look good and am happy with the purchase. Bought them for an upcoming camping trip to protect the family, so havent had a chance to field test them yet. Can update this review afterwards and comment on whether or not I felt they actually worked. But, they do not seem really cheap, poorly made, or even ugly. I imagine if all of the other reviews are on point, than we will not have any issues with their functionality. I also have citronella candles, professional grade spray, as well as a fogger Ill use on the campsite in an effort to ensure a mosquito free zone and no Zika for the fam. This may be too many variables for accurate test results, but maybe when we go canoeing well get a better idea. If I feel the results have been compromised, I will not even bother posting and stick with my original comment, of happy with the purchase”.”
Percy Flecha –
Great product. Functional and stylish.
Elfrieda Gaskin –
These bands are very nice and look like braided beautifully dyed leather bracelets. They are large enough to fit on a womans ankle. I plan on wearing one on my wrist and one on my ankle while enjoying evenings around the campfire. The smell is not strong although you know it is there. I held off one star because the mosquitos arent out in full force yet, but I anticipate great results.
Guy Loth –
Love the design of the bracelet! Seems to work for me so far!! Will definitely order in the future!
Joel Klotz –
Rosemary Bento –
Loved this product. Worked great in the rain forest of Costa Rica. It was great not to have to use the spray repellent. Not one bite! It does have a slight smell of citronella
Renaldo Rothschild –
Worked fantastic. Three days camping on a lakeside and not a single bite. The mosquitos were huge and all over the place, I figured this would work for my upper body, didnt expect it to completely repel. We all wife one band on wrist, would buy again!
Maye Plamondon –
Used overseas where it was hot day and night, wore these and did not get any bites, towards the end I did a little bit I think too they were less effective when they got wet. So i recommend not to wet them but definitely a great buy I was skeptical at first, but otherwise they worked as described and I couldnt be more happy. Also the smell isnt too over powering, my 5 yr old daughter wore them and the smell did not bother her. They are also comfortable to wear!
Arletta Lepore –
Love em – works great!
Minta Grossi –
Love the color (brown). Seems to be well made. Will update once we take our trip and see if the repellent works.
Antione Sidney –
Excellent design and great protection. Went to a trip in a tropical weather fir a couple if weeks and got no mosquito bites.
Rebecca Liner –
Nice smell, tried it few times and sealed it. Stays fresh this way.
Donnetta Huether –
Super fast shipping and they wok very well..my daughter and I both wear one if we are outiside
Magdalene Manalo –
Very satisfied. Comfortable with pleasant smell. No bites.
Nicholle Boulter –
Arrived quickly and as advertised.
Terisa Molden –
Very stylish, can wear on wrist or ankle. Holds up well in water and works for 7+ days.
Erna Clift –
I was not bothered by bug at hiking.
Steve Alfrey –
Awesome! I wore one on my wrist and another on my ankle during a recent trip to the Caribbean and no bites.Bonus – the bands are also stylish and no one realized they were mosquito repellents.
Renea Mcgonigle –
My daughter was very happy with this product which she purchased for her trip to Costa Rica.
Annalisa Heskett –
I wore this on my 7 day vacation to Mexico in fear of Zika. It was always on my wrist (even when swimming) and it still smelled at the end of my vacation! I didnt get a single bug bite and dont know if that would have been the case had I not had this bracelet. Its also a nice design and very light weight, making it easy to wear during the day and at night with a nice outfit.
Deandrea Cudjoe –
Seem to work.
Yessenia Dunkel –
These bracelets last a long time. They are a great investment and work very well. Love them and will continue to buy them every time we go on vacation.
Reagan Hisey –
My kids loved wearing them , they look cool and they work.
Sherley Babbitt –
I cant really speak for how well these work but I used them anyway on my 2-week trip to Thailand. I have allergic reactions to mosquito bites so I used the bracelets as extra protection on top of a citronella soap/loofah, spray and cream. I only got 2 bites on my trip so I hope these helped. I wouldnt use this as my only protection but was happy enough with the purchase.
Donella Gravitt –
Keeps mosquitos away and smells great!
Nelly Dulin –
These bracelets are awesome. We recently took a trip to Mexico and I was worried because I am typically the one to get eaten alive…I normally come back with 10-20 bites on my legs alone. We decided to try these bracelets as I didnt want to use spray, esp on my 3 and 6 year olds. They worked wonderfully!! I wore one on my ankle and one on my wrist and in an entire week I recd 2 bites, and that is including spending the day in a hot and humid lagoon. I am really happy to have found these and will be using regularly. Have started to use them when gardening as well and it has been very helpful as we have had a very wet season so far. Very happy with my purchase!!
Vincent Taft –
Bought these bracelets last year for my daughter and her friends for their weeks stay at camp. My daughter came home with no bites at all! I bought them all two because they look cute layered. She kept them on through showers and swimming.
Carmelia Stumbaugh –
Love these mosquito repellent bracelets! My grandkids thought they were cool looking and readily put them on before going outdoors to play. The odor was pleasant as well. Id buy them again if I need them again.
Graig Kalis –
awesome! Used them abroad this summer and no issues! They were too big on my very wimpy wrists but I pulled apart a piece of the braided part just enough to thread the end of the tie through to tie it up tighter. Worked just fine. Used one on one arm and another on one ankle. Perfect
Clementina Hatley –
bought these for my trip to thailand. i wore one on my wrist and ankle long with bug lotion. the only time i was bit was when i wasnt wearing them
Dominic Cheatham –
I purchased these for a trip to Texas to visit my daughter. I was pleasantly surprised that I went the whole 2 week trip without one bite! They look stylish too, which was a nice plus.
Carry Rossignol –
Obsess and I havent gotten a bite since putting them on
Oscar Giuliano –
Took these up to Yosemite for 5 days and they worked perfectly.
Harvey Philbeck –
I ordered these mosquito bracelets thinking maybe they would work, but not real confident, BUT they really do work. Several people in my family have worn them and non of us have gotten bitten by mosquitos this summer.
Josephine Baumann –
These bracelets are great for keeping mosquitos away. No more bug spray for me.
Kiana Getman –
Having tried so many products in the past, these attractive wristbands are by far the best we have used! Thank you!!!
Belen Kall –
Product as described and shipped promptly
Herschel Lavallee –
Good product work great
Tamekia Catlin –
Worked like a charm!!!Used them when I went to Dominican Republic where I was warned about the mosquitoes. Placed on on my left wrist and right ankle. Not a single bite in the 5 days I was in DR!!! My friends on the other hand had been bitten all over. Will definitely buy it again
Kate Cowley –
Used these in Puerto Rico and I was only bit twice within a full week, both me and my wife who have different blood typesand sensitive skin.
Adelia Todaro –
¬†Great product Works as advertised.
Shanel Griggs –
My backyard is a mosquito playground. I have a large city drain in the middle of my backyard which keeps big mutant mosquitos always around. I dont like to use the mosquito repellant sprays because the make me hot. After trying this bracelet, I will no longer need the sprays. I tried this bracelet and was able to stay out in my yard for more than 5 hours without getting a single bite. Im definitely going to be using these all summer and would recommend them to my friends.
Alma Prestwood –
I love these. Cute to wear and works well
Meryl Thurmond –
I bought these for my trip to Costa Rica and Im so glad I did! These were great to wear even when we dressed up for nice dinners. My husband and I both wore one on the wrist and one on the ankle.
Sherika Dengler –
Wont be using them until December, when Im cruising to some areas where Ill need protection from mosquitoes. Will be happy to review after that trip.
Amiee Sirmons –
Worked well and were super cute! Great for babies when some other products are too harsh
Sharmaine Salone –
Used these bracelets previously on a Caribbean Vacation and were extremely satisfied.
Lang Lucier –
Dianna Eilerman –
seemed to work well when we went camping
Nikki Harnden –
Awesome! Worked like a charm!!!
Marchelle Morelock –
¬†¬†Im always getting bitten and I hate mosquitos! This is a cool way to stay protected and not have to worry about spraying yourself.I was provided with this product for at no cost and I promise that this review is honest.
Bernardine Clagon –
We needed something to use in the rainforest in Honduras. I am not fond of the usual sprays with DEET so I was a little hesitant to purchase this product since I would be wearing it for 3 days against my skin. These worked great for our team! No bug bites, skin irritations and no nasty smell plus you get a little style with your clothing!
Margert Milledge –
Dolores Carswell –
Product worked as advertised. Minor but pleasant odor. Stylish leather” bracelet. Would highly recommend.”
Viviana Doll –
These things work great. I ride bikes a lot on the C&O canal and there are so many darn misquitoes that at times I can barely stop without being eaten alive by mosquitoes but with these on it is rare to get any bites. I waer one on each wrist and one on the top of my ball cap or helmet.
Ariel Reneau –
When I decided to travel through Bangkok, Kachanaburi and Hua Hin Thailand this summer, I knew I would need some serious mosquito protection. I took the OFF spray with me, but these little bracelets provided extra protection in a stylish manner. By the end of the trip, the scent had worn off, and I imagine the repellant wore off along with it.Word to the wise: dont get the bracelets wet as they will bleed color all over your clothes.
Classie Dandrea –
I loved this! I wore these for my Narobi Kenya trip and I returned without any mosquito bites! One bracelet lasted for my whole 15 day trip. Totally worth it! They style is nice and thin too!
Elmira Kafka –
I havent used these myself, but I gifted them to a friend who was heading into the woods for a music festival. She mentioned that in the past, she had been bitten up by mosquitoes at this event, and due to the silly rules of the festival (no aerosol bug spray can be carried into the festival, but you can buy it on the grounds), she was resigned to getting bitten up again. I saw these when looking up alternatives to bug spray and snagged them for her. I didnt know if they would work, but figured they would be better than nothing.When she returned, she reported that she wore one bracelet on her wrist and it worked really well. She didnt get a single mosquito bite the whole time.
Colette Ghoston –
These bracelet/anklets worked pretty well on my recent trip to Mexico. I tied one on each wrist and ankle, 4 total worn together. We have learned from our years of travel there that citronella repellent doesnt work well. I think its because thats the natural repellent that most people use and the mosquitos are used to it, or maybe attracted to it because its what the tasty people wear, lol! Anyway, these did seem to help, as in I only got a few bites, while others were definitely bitten more. I added 40% deet spray when it got really bad, so the bands cant get all the credit. They are kinda fashionable as well, and although they did get damp a couple of times, I didnt swim or bathe with them on.
Tamisha Delagarza –
satisfied with the purchase 🙂
Arlette Claybrooks –
Jeff Seats –
They did the trick. Bought them to DR. Placed on one my wrist and one on my ankle. Only got one bite from the 5 days I was there. Which isnt bad at all.
Marlen Gaskins –
These are awesome! I have purchased these for two separate trips. Once to Mexico and once to Paradise Island. No bug bites here! I will not travel without them.
Eloise Darlington –
So far it seems to be working a little, they have a strong smell at first! But it eventually wears off! They are stylish I put mine on my ankle. Not to sure how long they last, but I dont seem to be getting sucked by many!
Rosalyn Shewmaker –
This product does not work for all types of biting bugs. I purchased for an international trip, and the type of mosquitoes in that country were NOT repelled by these bracelets. Im sure they would have been fine in the US. The smell seemed to wear off in its intensity after only 7 days
Ivory Ortman –
This product was fantastic. Wore one in each wrist for a week long photo safari in Tanzania. Tons of little flies in the truck. I had no issues as I used the bracelets in combination with using a spray on my ankles. Worked out perfectly. Highly recommend!
Norma Herrada –
Natasha Almeida –
These bands work well for thirty days. I use it as an anklet in the summer months. I bought a few packs to send to family and They loved them. The company I bought them from have them at a great price and they were delivered quickly.
Ines Kochan –
works like a miracle! I used these in New Orleans in March of this year, I was there for a week doing tours each evening and left with only one big bite, which was on the top of my foot. These little bracelets are absolutely amazing!
Gwen Costigan –
These bracelets are great! I am glad that they dont have that citronella fragrance, I am sensitive to. Th scent they do have is geranium and lavender, very nice. So far the bracelets seem to be repelling those no see-ums, and other miserable pests. Glad we got these, inexpensive too!
Sina Melody –
Wonderful product that worked well.
Britt Stoke –
Not sure if these work just yet but they‚Äôre very cute.The smell is VERY VERY strong.
Grisel Gatts –
delivered promptly and great item! thank you.
Merri Canary –
Arrrived fast. Lets see if ut works heading to Thailand.
Karie Leib –
With a 6 year old son with sensory integration issues, trying to spray bug repellent on him is a disaster. I have used bracelet type products in the past but they have been ugly and clunky. These Kinven bracelets are awesome! They look nice, dont get in the way and my son has no problems wearing them! Would purchase again.
Tawanda Paulo –
Stylish alternative to the vinyl band. Great color choices.
Clarissa Zawislak –
I went on a camping trip and I got these cute bug repellent bracelets for me and my friend. I got 1 mosquito bite but it was also raining. So it worked great for me! My friend also used bug spray and these bracelets and she got eatten up. She was blood type A+ Im an O+ maybe that has something to do with the effectiveness of how these work. But Ill buy these again for sure!
Theresia Colberg –
They work well I dont look good to
Wanita Reinert –
Great product !
Chrissy Ayers –
Nick Bilderback –
I used it several times and I didnt get bites, including at an all day music festival in a field of grass! I wear on my ankle..So pleased with product.Con: smells like bug medicine, so I wear on ankle.
Kayleen Edgley –
Working pretty good so far.
Julieann Kimsey –
Seems to work, has a pleasant smell. GF had it on got very few bug bites. I didnt wear one and was filled with bites.
Debra Gallien –
looks like normal bracelet , so its not so very obvious that you are wearing mosquito repellant, but does have the citronella fragrance. I wore one on my wrist and did get bitten on my legs, after that I continued to wear it on my ankle and that seemed to work better. Quick shipping and good packaging.
Randi Kunze –
great product worked for me.
Jaime Reaper –
It seem kinda funny for a 60 yr old guy to wear a bracelet, but they did seem to work pretty well, so I just go use to it. I am happy with the product.
Tish Breault –
Loved the bracelets! I used them for my Costa Rica trip (mosquitoes galore). I used 2 at a time, one on my ankle and one on my wrist, felt they worked really well for about a week. After that I started getting a mosquito bite here and there, so I used spray bug repellent to help.
Jacob Trybus –
The product really works. Mosquitos just love to bite me, and since I put on the bracelet in my wrist , no bites so far. However I do recommend wearing one bracelet in the ankle as well.
Tristan Folmar –
I used these in the Philippines for 3 weeks. it was my 5th trip. I dont know if I was just lucky, or if these things really work, because I only got a few bites on my trip, where I usually am covered with bites! Ill use them on every trip to the Philippines now!
Marjorie Roig –
Worked perfect on our 2 week trip to Thailand and Cambodia
Rico Messing –
These are stylish and keep the mosquitos away. I just wish that there was a way to refill” them.”
Toney Hoy –
They looked stylish for our safari. Smell was strong out of the packaging and died off. I didnt get bit much but then again also ended up reenforcing with spray. I would still recommend
Joni Silverberg –
These seem really effective in repelling flying insects. Have only had mine for @ 10 days. So far – no bites. I am outside very often.

The bracelets arrived on time with no issues. I was leaving for vacation on the Big Island of Hawaii. Concerns about dengue fever there made me think that I wanted something that I wouldnt have to remember to apply. So Ive been on the island for about a week and have not been bitten so far, although when I have gone into the higher risk areas I have used a 100 percent DEET product and have not seen any mosquitos. So I cant really be sure how well these work.
Kasha Peden –
The products were delivered on time and are good quality
Mario Tocco –
These mosquito bracelets work great & look very stylish, they do have a strong citronella scent to them but with all the bugs that permeate my back yard that is a plus side to these. There are two per package one in front & one in back, says they are good for upto 15 days. For me the price of just over $8 is very reasonable for 4 bracelets. These things work well & we had mosquitos all over my back yard during the 2 test runs I took this past week. We stayed outside til well after dark & noone had any bites after coming inside. & normally my 2 year old is a soft tasty mosquito magnet lol
Christiana Gallo –
Stylish and seemed to work well. The smell was not overpowering!
Janel Mcgreevy –
Works pretty well. MY girlfriend, who is typically all kind of bugs lure has been bite free.

Lien Tamplin –
We were in punta cana and got a few bites here and there… not even sure if it was mosquito or whatnot. But we dont know how many bugs didnt bitw us. We know by the end of the week these bracelets were done.
Fredric Veal –
Ordered these for everyone in our party before going to Miami and the Florida Keys for Christmas as we were concerned about Zika. These bracelets look very nice to wear and seem to be effective. I have been wearing one on my wrist for 5 days now and have only gotten 2 bites, both on my knees(not sure if they are mosquito bites or other). My husband has been wearing and has not been bit. The smell on the first day is potent so I recommend putting it on in the morning as we put them on at night and had a hard time sleeping with them close to our faces, but after the first day the scent fades and we are not bothered anymore. Would buy again. Happy with purchase.
Ardelle Mcquiston –
this product need from seller a short explanation about how to use the bag hold inside, but it is working.
Pierre Torry –
The bracelets are cute, and stylish enough that my 9 and 11 year old boys wanted to wear them at camp! Very cool concept. They wore them on their wrists, but I think wearing them as an anklet might be a good idea too. Great concept!
David Haney –
Great product, works as advertised!
Vada Presler –
I hung a bracelet on my rear view mirror in my jeep and so far it has repelled the mosquitos. I havent been bitten once since hanging it! I also wear the bracelet when I go out and I am very pleased.
Araceli World –
I constantly travel alot especially to humid areas. I started using this product to help me keep mosquitos away and it has really worked for me. I noticed that this product does work and mosquitos do stay away. Id much rather wear a stylish bracelet than spray all over my body.
Luanne Blye –
This product met our expectations. Thanks!
Walter Steffenson –
Does not work. I went to the park last weekend with a friend and we both wore one and still got numerous bites.Do not buy.
Lynna Swider –
Effective and trendy at the same time! I would definitely suggest it to get some relief from mosquitoes.It looks good even as an ankle bracelet.
Jacqueline Tann –
Wow!! Im in love!These are adorable! I got the black and brown set. Personally I like the brown better, it is more soft? Both feel nice on the skin, that as youll notice in one of the pictures the other side of the brown one is a different texture than the outside so its much softer.I really like the smell of these essential oil smell so much better than the traditional bug sprays I have used before. I have a pretty small wrist so the bracelet looks a little big on me but still that would be worth it to prevent bites since I always get bit up by mosquitoes. In fact, a lot of times I get bit on my legs so I really like the idea of using this around the ankle. This fits me much better by the ankle and I think it looks really cute.Not to be overlooked is the fact that this would be much more convenient to have than spray that you have to carry around, reapply, and check into your airfare luggage if youre flying. These are supposed to last for 15 days each so each package has a month for the mosquito protection. I like that because its plant oil, it is very safe and the package even says its safe for babies. This product does not contain DEET. it is water resistant so thats great if youre going to be at the beach or the pool.I think this would make a great gift for the summer time, or for a traveler, backpacker etc. definitely can be worn by men or women.I was worried about what I would do on an upcoming trip to south east Asia. Now I am excited that I can cross mosquito bite prevention off my list!Hope this helps!** Please Note: I received this product at a discount in exchange for an honest review. **
Isis Hillenbrand –
Strong scent…the mosquitoes have vacated the premises!
Wilhemina Leider –
Willena Funkhouser –
These mosquito bracelets are ok. The look and feel much better than others I have tried, but they are on about the same page as the others for keeping the bugs at bay when you are more than sitting in the backyard. They do the job in the back yard, just not deeper woods or camping.
Mirella Hymes –
Not sure if they worked, but sure didnt hurt. I wore these on our trip to the caribbean. Supposedly waterproof for 2 weeks, but Im not sure thats true as I still got eaten alive. Didnt have high hopes, but a pretty inexpensive try anyway.
Alexandria Bourg –
Works, but needed one on my ankle and wrist to keep them away from my whole body.
Luanna Brokaw –
I used these for my son going to summer camp. Seemed to be effective. Easy to put on and because they are pretty stylish he didnt mind wearing. I like them better than the foam bracelets as they would come off & get dirty and werent as stylish.
Cammy Morano –
I really hate wearing bug spray however I hate getting eaten alive even more. When I saw this I had my doubts about whether it would work but had to give it a try. I was surprised but thrilled when it did! I now need to order several more because everyone in my family is fighting over them. This is so much nicer than the spray and it is far more effective!
Frankie Vegas –
This is great as an additional precaution to wearing bug repellant spray or lotion. For my week long trip to Hawaii, I only got two bug bites, which is an accomplishment because usually whenever I travel somewhere new I get bites ALL OVER ME. Additionally, my bf and I wore one bracelet on one arm and one on an ankle, and my bf got many bites on the arm & leg that he DIDNT wear one of these on hahah. So overall, I think it does what its supposed to. You cant expect it to completely eliminate bug bites, its just citronella. I give a full five stars because it seems to work to an extent and I really love the look of the braided bracelet as an accessory on vacay haha.
Ta Mooring –
This seemed to work. I used them all throughout our 3 week trip to SE Asia and never got a single bite. I put one on my wrist and another on my ankle
Yolonda Eacret –
very stylish and comfortable to wear. Recently went to Mexico and wanted protection from Zika virus. They had a pleasant smell and I liked not having to spray a mosquito repellant all over my skin
Rosalba Luk –
Works great, we do alot of hiking and these are a great misquito repellent.
Asuncion Crossen –
These work great. Took them to the Bahamas and Puerto Rico!!! Worked awesome especially since Im allergic to Deet. The smell is kind of strong but its natural and isnt bad at all. Great to travel with!!
Elliott Sagers –
I love this product!
Evelyn Schriver –
I ordered this for my son who attends summer camp. I hate spraying him with bug repellent, but he needed some protection for outdoor events. i wasnt sure what to expect. Would this really work? Yes it did. Far exceeding my expectations. One bracelet was enough for two weeks of camp! The extra three we kept around the house for when my husband and son went out to do yard work. I will definitely be ordering more of these next year when the bugs are out. Ill get a few extras so that we can have them on hand for guests when we grill. If you are an avid outdoors person, this is a must have.
Marguerita Delgadillo –
These worked as promised, but there was a strong odor which I didnt mind. I actually wore it on my ankle.
Mana Jiggetts –
Wore them throughout Thailand. Worked greaT!
Reginald Worley –
I cannot express enough on how well this really works. I was at an out door festival and not once did I get bitten by any bug I really like these bug repellent bracelets a lot better than the spray and they look just like the other bracelets I wear so it was a win 🙂
Blanca Seawell –
Yep, they work. Keep off mosquitoes and look like a bracelet.
Brady Tupper –
I ordered these Kinven Mosquito Bug Repellant Faux Leather bracelets because it has been difficult to get mosquito sprays delivered to Hawaii. There is a shortage due to the current outbreak of Dengue on the Big Island. I wear my bracelet around my ankle in conjunction with a repellant lotion, and have not been bitten by any mosquitoes so far. It is also quite fashionable here in Hawaii to wear ankle bracelets, so this product is perfect.
Lauri Layman –
I really like this, It help a lot . Thanks
Scarlet Byham –
I really like how these work. They are stylish and easy to use and they do the job.
Sang Harr –
This product worked great looked great. Used one bracelet for a week through the shower and the pool and still was working at the end of the week. My 11 yr old daughter liked it also said it looked cool”.”
Tresa Mayeda –
Works for 3-4 days. After that, you will need to reinforce it with the Kinven spray, but the most time you can use it is around 2 weeks.
Maynard Avery –
Works great! I found the best way to keep them working for longer is to take the bracelet off and put it in a ziplock bag until the next time you will need it….its like a new fresh bracelet when you take it out! Very good quality product!
Hisako Woodbridge –
They seemed to work with my kids over the summer at a sleep away camp. It also serves as a bracelet. So, they served their purposes I guess.
Margery Stalls –
Great colors and longevity.
Samatha Borror –
These mosquito bracelets work better than expected,very cute,reusable and economical. I will buy again.
Marleen Lewey –
Only got to wear the bracelet once so far. I wore it as an ankle bracelet..I liked the scent very natural. I would say it helped but will have to wear it more room be sure
Yajaira Costa –
The mosquito repelling bracelets are stylish and seemed to be effective
Nila Orlandi –
Works well, make sure you dont get these wet.
Sherryl Marin –
I wore one on my wrist and ankle (just to be safe) on our recent trip to Thailand. It says its water proof but I took it off for showers and swimming and kept it in a zip lock bag. Wore each set for 10 days. I only got bit twice. I think they work pretty well!
Palma Lamarche –
Very attractive and the smell is pleasant. So far, keeping the mosquitos away.
Bobbi Gossman –
Exactly what I wanted.
Velia Aguilera –
The bug bracelets are pretty good, but the package says they will last two weeks when they only last about a week. Other than that they work pretty well and are cute.
Vernell Frary –
very nice idea. still to see if works well as promised.
Chris Rego –
The bracelets were attractive and appeared to work. After a few days when the smell was not as strong we sprayed them with insect repellant and they were as good as new!
Natasha Raborn –
Quick service, designer look instead of just a repellent. Worked well and comfortable.
Audrie Laskowski –
Has worked very well and have had comments that its stylish as well!
Kelsey Gerson –
It works! While I didnt use it in the jungle or on hiking trip to test. I used it for a trip to China mostly in city areas, put one on wrist and one on ankle, and I got not even one bite from mosquito! It smells a little , tolerable. I did wear it one time during swimming for half an hour, it remained working. Now one stays in my car and I see nothing flying inside of the car.It works!

Alissa Westberg –
I have worn many repellent bracelets. I have to wear them because I have a severe allergic reaction to mosquito bites. This bracelet not only smells really good, all others smell like bug spray, but it looks great. Most either look like a kids plastic toy gotten from a vending machine or a raggedy piece of felt that wont stay on and after a day looks like it has more germs than the mosquitoes one is trying to keep away. These look amazing and I have gotten multiple compliments on the bracelets. My co-workers cannot believe that it is a repellent bracelet. It works too!!! These last longer than the other ones as well. Two weeks, instead of 7 – 10 days.
Donnell Earlywine –
I sent these with my 10-year-old on his outdoor ed trip with school. He was one of the few children who came home without any insect bites! I will certainly buy these again.
Lucienne Erdmann –
I purchased this for my wife she wanted something that worked and is stylish. This product arrived fast. Many colors to pick from. Thanks
Elaine Fritzler –
Great product! Arrived quickly.
Claud Netherton –
I wear one on my wrist and one on my ankle at work (since thats where I get bitten the most while working outdoors). Ive worn them for about a week now and have not been bitten in a week ?. I will probably buy more. The style of bracelet they are makes them able to be worn anywhere with almost anything
Bryanna Deherrera –
Used it on my ankle the smell is strong but it kept us bug free
Amada Jiron –

September Bascombe –
My 3 yr old daughter gets eaten alive where we live and is allergic to some of the bites and I get concerned of using the spray stuff and it end up getting in her mouth or eyes while trying to put it on her. It makes it difficult to let her go outside and enjoy the kiddie pool and play with how much she gets bitten up. I decided to try these to help prevent having to use the spray or if needed to use along with the spray for increased bug repellent. I like that it says u can use these in the water, such as for swimming. They are only good for 15 days, then the effect starts to wear off, which is concerning because what if its raining a lot and dont use them much? Then, seems a bit of a waste. I like they have long ties to help make sure it fits most peoples wrists. Still a little big on my daughters wrist, but not too much and can cut the ties off a bit so not sticking out everywhere. However, even if it has a 15 day expiration when you open it, the bracelets are still stylish and can be used as bracelets if you like that kind of thing. Could even add some charms to it and make them your own. You can definitely tell they are bug repellent though as the smell of it is obvious when you open it, but over the 15 day period the smell dissipates, of course, that is what keeps it from being effective anymore too.
Ian Auzenne –
I was so happy to find something to repel mosquitos without having to drench myself in bug spray. They smell like a citronella candle but that‚Äôs better than spray on bugspray. Works great!
Raye Berman –
Sharron Cass –
Very nice, looks good and it works, will buy again and will recommend them to friends
Hilma Avilla –
I purchased these for students traveling with me to Costa Rica. They loved them! We wore them the entire time and they smelled wonderful! We didnt have any bites, but I have no idea if it was due to these bracelets or not. I would buy them again though!
Nena Buscher –
Stylish, did the job, and doesn‚Äôt smell bad 🙂
Doyle Shillings –
Ive used this product last year when I went to Africa and they worked great! I purchased them again for my next Africa trip.
Darline Coger –
Used in Tanzania, malaria is rampant there with a non stop line of people getting tested for it at the clinic I worked in. This was incredible, I dont know if there was an exceptionally low density of mosquitoes in my area or what, but I didnt get bitten once. I like the think these did the job. Dont last too long, but works great
Fonda Tremble –
Packed these for my daughter at a nature camp. To be fair, I packed her an outfit a day in gallon ziplock bags, and then stuck one of these in each bag so the smell permeated the clothing in case she forgot to put them on…. but she only got one bite all week, so Id say they were worth it!
Lakiesha Batton –
Much cuter than the plastic ones. Seemed to help my daughter with getting less bites.
Lissette Rhode –
I bought these on a whim to try.I use them as ankle bracelets when Im sitting outside on my patio so i dont get chewed up. i only need to put one on and Im good for hours of R&R with a book and no bites!!
Hyman Wax –
Bought for summer camp. No bites so seemed good. A little smelly when the package was opened but not annoying after they aired out.
Cheryle Budzinski –
Im one of those people who attracts mosquitoes in a big way. Ive used Bug Bam bands before and they work great but not the cutest things in the world. For a recent trip I wanted an upgrade. These look great. at first they didnt seem to have enough bug stuff to keep the little buggers away but I used some Pest Defy essential oil blend and put drops onto the inside of the raw leather and that helped a lot. So basically you can reload these periodically and use them forever.
Will Bastien –
Great mosquito prevention. Super fast shipping. Used them on a trip to the Dominican Republic and after 6 days not one mosquito bite!
Blaine Nghiem –
I love this. Way better than spray or lotion. It has a little slip knot so you can adjust the sizes. I live in a valley, so this summer will. Bring all the bugs back and this stylish bracelet will be featured with all my outfits. I cant wait. It smells really good. I keep sniffing it. Really really love that they send you enough for 30 days! Each bracelet lasts15 days
Annis Lenzi –
very satisfied with this product arrived in a timely matter
Sana Carroway –
I just ordered this they look nice have not tried them yet I will give feed back when i use them
Kacie Sampsel –
I covered myself in the every repellant option imaginable, so I can‚Äôt super say if they worked so well or not, but the smell was pungent but not unpleasant so I imagine they would work ok on their own. They are comfortable and easy to tie, and looked better than I expected. I will buy again.
Chloe Paras –
Seemed to work well enough.
Rosena Mankin –
We took these to the rainforest of Costa Rica and they seemed to work well. Id purchase them again in the future.
Billy Miedema –
Nice looking bracelets! Scent is pleasant, easy to put on and my kids liked them. Do they work? No idea, but it makes me feel like Im trying 😉 will continue to wear them and see if we can notice a difference- esp since we wear them 24/7 and they get wet etc.
Aleen Crawley –
Kept the girls bite free while in Mexico.
Demetra Oakley –
Delivered much soon then we expected, even though we will not be using this product until July. Exactly what we expected and hopefully they will do the job.
Asuncion Satcher –
Went tent camping and wore 1 as an ankle bracelet the entire 3 days and not one bite anywhere. Ive bought more since trying them and have them in my emergency bag. Everyone in our group had the same results and wanted to buy some as well!
Jacques Fossett –
Charise Olmos –
Not so good
Roxana Palka –
long lasting repellent
Eartha Barrett –
Wore these bracelets on a recent trip to Thailand where we stayed in a tropical location for several days. Being extremely reactive to mosquito bites and other insect bites, I used them on both ankles and wrists. They come in a resealable plastic bag where the instructions advise to store them when not wearing. The little bags have some repellent oil in them and rejuvenates the leather so theres still some potency when you use them again. I used them for a week paired with mosquito repellent lotion and did not get bit. The weave design just makes them look like any other accessory, which is great.
Veronica Smartt –
Loved these, my son loved them too, worked great!
Eneida Fairless –
Perfect!!!!! Especially when u go to Nebraska in the middle of summer!!!!!!!!
Mozell Monn –
I took these with me in a group tour of Capetown, Kruger, and Johannesburg, South Africa. They worked wonderfully for the intent for which they were intended – deterring mosquito bites in Kruger! And, they were stylish.
Kathaleen Sudler –
Easy to use. Easy to lost.
Retta Torkelson –
Products came on time and were exactly as described. Im very pleased. The only thing I would change is to package them individually.
Madeleine Kenna –
what I liked about it is quite simple, it works :-). without the smell or inconvenience of sprays. we traveled to Costa Rica and always wore when in the rain forest, no bug problems for any of the 3 of us…
Douglas Perrotti –
Kept the mosquitoes away!
Aide Leyden –
Haiti, mission trip! Perfect!
Nicki Klingman –
I wore this product in Miami and in the Caribbean soon after the Zika notice in Miami. I didnt get a single bite and I am very, very prone to mosquito bites. It is comfortable and it fit around my ankle. It does have a strong citronella smell so I didnt wear it on my wrist. Definitely worth trying out!
Young Ingles –
I wore one on my ankle and another on my arm. They protected me from all mosquito bites during my November trip to southern Thailand. They are still effective after going through the water and washing clean.
Kanesha Wiest –
These really work well! I must admit, I was a skeptical. They were used at camp in the woodsof Michigan, and keep the mosquitoes at bay!
Margy Pavon –
Nice looking, very stylish. Have not used it yet, however looking forward to hang by the beach and not have the pesty bugs around.Very hip and in the wearing you would never know its a bug repellent…Well done.
Ileen Kleis –
Does what it says… In the Amazone rainforest.
Gregg Alire –
I was pleased to receive this product because I want to protect my family from the Zika virus. I like that it is a natural product with citronella, lavender and peppermint. I used it to watch a meteor shower and not a single insect bothered me.
Dollie You –
I bought these for a recent trip to Vietnam and they seemed to do the trick while not resorting to sticky, smelly, or toxic sprays and being relatively stylish. They definitely have a solid smell when first opened, but it‚Äôs more of a citronella than a deet smell and wasn‚Äôt offensive to me. I would definitely order these again.
Sophie Rameriz –
My family used these on a trip to Alaska, where I hear mosquitoes are unofficially the state bird. No one got mosquito bites and I didnt have to spray my kids with chemicals.
Eleanora Weller –
I am a mosquito magnet, and this product has helped repel those mosquitos in a stylish way. Although it isnt a complete block from mosquitos, it has greatly reduced the amount of bites that I usually get. Ill definitely be reordering the product.
Giselle April –
I wore two bracelets the entire time for 6 days in Cuba. This included excursions such as hiking through a rainforest, navigating through caves, horseback riding, swimming and etc. I did not receive any insect bites. The citrus smell is a little loud, but not overbearing. The product definitely worked!
Diedre Quinonez –
They work for the upper body, buy if you want your legs protected you need to spray yourself.
Herbert Byer –
Maryam Hayhurst –
Kept the mosquitoes far away from my son on a trip to a tropical conuntry
Andra Dory –
My mother lives in Florida and was complaining about mosquitos when she was out walking, so I ordered these bracelets for her after seeing they got the highest rating of the bug-repellent bracelets listed — and they were very attractive.She said the first leg of her walk she had forgotten to put on a bracelet and was bothered by a mosquito the entire time. After she dropped her dog off at home and put on a bracelet, she said the rest of her walk was mosquito-free — and she went twice as far that time.That made her happy, which made me extremely happy.Wonderful product and company!
Savannah Lobdell –
Bought one for everyone on our trip to Grenada and hardly any mosquito bites! Thanks
Carina Defibaugh –
Very good product
Iola Auslander –
useful they work!
Emmy July –
I bought these for a trip to Belize. As far as I know they worked but I only saw one mosquito during the whole vacation. I did soak the bracelet in spray repellent because I was in the water daily.
Hilda Klotz –
I went to the Philippines this past May and my husband and I worse the bracelets for the full 10 days. Between the two of us, we only had one bite. We swam with the bracelet in a pool and the ocean, spent hours outside in the country, and had many encounters with mosquitos around – so I think the product fared well.The biggest downside was the smell. I understand that repellents need to exude an odor to keep the insects away, but at time it was nauseating – esp. while eating. But, when youre eating outside you dont want to risk the bites! I even switch the bracelet to my ankle was still overcome by the scent.
Gaye Theiss –
Very good product and service thank you
Stacia Fermin –
This product worked wonders for camping the bug spray didnt work at all pulled out a bracelet and you could see the bugs leaving! Definitely will be ordering more! The only thing wrong was it took forever to get here almost 2 weeks after arrival date.
Aliza Bourne –
There were only two in the package when they arrived. I paid for 4, a little dissappointed that I didnt get my full order.
Markus Speller –
Worked well in Rio de Janeiro mosquito areas. Nice look to wear as well.
Shizuko Petteway –
used it in the rain forest of Costa Rica both my wife and I did not get a single bite
Lucy Ohearn –
I bought these for our trip to Belize. When we arrived there was a mosquito Malaria warning in the airport…scary! We wore these badboys the whole time (7 days), and never got bit once. We wore theze4on the ocean several times and rhe shower and they dont lose their strength. I like that they look cool too.
Marcelino Kampa –
It works! I was wearing this during my vacation in Cancun. The smell is pretty strong so I put it on my ankle and I did not get one single bite. Mosquitoes love me but they stayed away from me this time. And there was one night I forgot to put the bracelet on, I became the mosquitoes buffet. Highly recommended for ppl who are also a mosquitoes magnet.
Reatha Quackenbush –
We were very happy with this product. They work and they look stylish! I would definitely purchase again!
Jann Villeneuve –
These are working very well for my family
Slyvia Kiel –
My son used these on a trip to Guatemala. The fact that they are adjustable was great. He wore them on his wrist and ankle.
Nancee Smothers –
Much more stylish than the band bracelets… and they work! Repeat customer.
Divina Falkner –
Worked well for us. When theres heavy mosquitos they dont seem to do well, but when its just a few bugs they work great. Lasted the two days worn and even after we went swimming with them.
Marvella Strackbein –
Bought it as a present for my outdoorsee family. Love the looks of the bracelet. Very stylish.
Ronny Manalo –
Works great. I have only been bitten when I am not wearing a bracelet or anklet. So much better than bug spray, in my opinion. My only complaint is that my packages didnt come with a bag as advertised, but I was able to use a plastic bag I already had.
Florencio Monteleone –
Im extremely impressed havent been bitten since wearing the bracelet for my trip to the Dominican
Kristine Richie –
Hobert Babineaux –
I used these in South India during January. They seemed to work very well. For the people who wore them, we didnt get any bug bites.
Marielle Townson –
They really work!
Asha Shrewsbury –
We have found that these work as intended and definitely repell mosquitos, even if not always.
Silva Holstein –
Works like a charm, no smell and attractive. A triple play!
Craig Blasingame –
Stylish and effective!! Ordering more now.
Lorelei Roller –
Tonya Findley –
Used these in Hawaii and didnt get any mosquito bites! We wore them on our ankles instead of our wrists. They have a very strong odor that you can smell if theyre on your wrist. Worked great.
Natisha Gallman –
The smell is somewhat strong so I wear one on my ankle. I havent received any mosquito bites!
Eloisa Kirwin –
Excellent product. I wear one when walking the dog. On Louisiana it is a necessity and these work great without spraying yourself with chemicals. I keep mine in a zip lock bag so I reuse it and it still has a citronella scent weeks later. The scent is not overpowering though. The bracelets are cute too for men and women, even my grandchildren wear them.
Bryan Molina –
These look good and are wonderful at deterring the bugs
Tora Rauscher –
Fast service, Very happy with my purchase!
Abel Larkey –
These bracelets are AWESOME! Where I live in Georgia is always covered with Mosquitos and gnats especially in the summer and Im one of those lucky ones who gets eaten alive every time Im out. I hate spraying myself with who knows what in regular bug sprays so I bought these bracelets and they really do work! Best of all I dont have to walk around smelling like I just showered in bug spray AND I dont get bitten. Win-win
Dierdre Kossman –
I purchased these for my daughters trip to Thailand. She wasnt sure how much they helped with the bugs (she also used an organic spray), but she LOVES the look and continues to wear them every day, even now that shes back.
Natacha Wyatt –
didnt get bit once. looks fashionable.
Cassie Melugin –
My husband and I bought these for our honeymoon to Mexico. Mexico is one of the places that has known cases of Zika virus, and has travel precautions. Since we would like to expand our family, we did not want to take any chances with getting infected with Zika. We didnt see a single mosquito while we were in Riviera Maya, maybe it was because of the bracelets? Then again, maybe not. But since these are so cheap, it didnt hurt to wear them. 😉 We wore these for dinner when we were dressing nice (versus the plastic competitor).
Treasa Demko –
These mosquito bands definitely came in handy here in Texas. They are lightweight, non irritating and my kids didnt complain about them. We didnt experience any issues with bugs. I would recommend for younger children, especially if you dont want to deal with chemical sprays and skin irritants. They are also nifty for adults especially with spring and summer seasons with increased moisture and bugs.
Lilla Morman –
Effective and also fashionable
Maxine Weiser –
Merrilee Hilty –
great seller – delivered as promised!
Helen Ledezma –
I absolutely love these bracelets!! Power Buy.
Thea Manor –
ordered these for our recent trip to Brazil! worked great, stylish, easy to put on and take off, and they were great even after swimming and getting wet.
Davida Partee –
Good looking. Wore on my ankle. No mosquito bites.

These smell amazing and I believe that they worked great! I wore these in Thailand and left with only a few bug bites! I wore mine in the pool and ocean so I do not think they lasted as long as it says it will – but worth it!

We wore these bracelets on our trip and got very few mosquito bites. I cant say whether it was solely because of the bracelets, but there wasnt any downside to wearing them. Package came on time.

I went to Thailand for vacation and got a mosquito bite as soon as I arrived but after I put a bracelet on, I didnt get bitten throughout the whole trip (used 1 bracelet throughout the day and 2 at night, one on wrist and ankle)
Darleen Bjerke –
Wearing it right now to see if it works
Elli Eastridge –
These bracelets really work. I did as other reviewers suggested, and wore one on my wrist and one on my ankle. Bug free in the South Pacific.
Abram Capote –
Worked perfectly. None of us were bitten at all even though we went on a boat ride through some relatively still waters surrounded by trees looking at monkeys, birds, and other creatures. Also, much more stylish looking than the other insect repellant bracelets. Would definitely buy again!
Tammi Belk –
These went to camp with my son. They look cool, and seem to what they are supposed to do. He thinks they are great. Will buy them again.

These were awesome! However, do not put them on in a small space, we put them on in the car, and peppermint had all of our eyes watering LOL.

Im concerned about the Zika virus so I was so happy to have found this product. It repels mosquitoes without any harsh chemicals- all you have to do is wear this stylish bracelet!

Purchased four (4) for a family of 4 and we can spend a 48 hours outside without planning to do so. Biking, hiking, swimming, camping and simply grilling at home — and my family swears by SS Kinven Mosquito Bug Repellent. Well done!
Manual Mccauley –
Not only useful but love the look of them 🙂 mosquitos love me. With these it has cut them down. Great product.
Glinda Reason –
Works good without a bad smell. Once tied on, difficult to remove and reuse. Ordered the pink. Nice color.
Mariette Lineberger –
Will be taking this product to Thailand! Thank you!!
Boyce Spiegel –
Havent tried these out yet, but love the look. I have small wrists, so they might be an ankle bracelet instead. Wish there were more colors available.
Tameka Halton –
Wonderful works well no bits anymore.

Works perfect!!!! Used several times on mission trips. Everyone else had bites.
Mariann Brody –
five stars for prompt and responsive service – wore one bracelet on my ankle and was not bothered by mosquitoes but hard to know if there were any around. I hope they work, because they are a lot more comfortable than spraying myself with bug juice when Ive just taken a shower and want to spend time outdoors.

Smells like chemicals, but worked well. Wore one on my ankle at all times, submerged it fully in water, and still worked. Still recommend regular bug spray as an added measure. 0 bug-bites in Thailand jungle while wearing this combined with bug spray.
Lorette Yearwood –
Works great!! My son is allergic and not one mosquito bite last night!!
Josie Bordeau –
I wore it on my wrist and ankle while I was at Dominican Republic and it worked very well. I will purchase again.
Clarinda Mckennon –
Works real well and fits on wrist, ankle and furniture
Marquerite Zeitz –
I have taken these bracelets twice out to camping and have worked flawlessly. Last time I took these out I wore one on my wrist and ankle in a camp site with a lake infested with mosquitos. When I came home 4 days later I only had 3 mosquito bites on the opposite ankle of where I wore the bracelet. I clearly would have been miserable without these. The best part is that they are not too smelly. They smell like tomatoe leafs but you have to put your nose right up to the bracelet.

Kept them off really strong odor

These things really did help when I went to Thailand in January.They did not smell and I really didnt get bit until after I had worn it for 3 days and was in the water for literally 10 hours one day.I really like that the colors were easy to wear with my outfits and bathing suits, as opposed to all those other gaudy ones on the market.The only thing I would advise, is if you are ALSO going to use deet, because you are in a mosquito infested area, It bled onto my skin when deet was applied to it, but other than that I didnt have an issue with it.I wore it on my ankle, and it fit just fine, it wasnt too big or too small, it was adjustable.If you are going to be in the water for a pro long amount of time, I suggest removing it, because it wasnt that effective after being under water for a whole day.
Bari Ayotte –
I have not had a bite wearing these bracelets! And Im a mosquito magnet.
Cleo Croff –
Worked fine for our trip to FL/GA

These are great! I wore them in Barbados and nothing came near me and no one can tell that you have them on. They look like a piece of jewelry.
Mariah Fulghum –
Must have worked as I didnt get any mosquito bites while on game drives” in South Africa.”
Meda Livsey –
Works well (all day) and looks good. Smells a bit funny but thats the insect repellent part. I bought these for my sons camping trip and he wore them happily.
Loyce Hadlock –
Nice looking bracelets. Effective in keeping the mosquitoes away.
Myron Gregoire –

Ava Mcgray –
