Hidden in the bush behind our house is a small fairy garden. I don’t go there, because alongside the fairies (which I have never seen) are mosquitoes. I don’t like mosquitoes. More to the point, I don’t like their bite.
So, when I was asked to try out Guard Me, an all natural bug repellent stick by Twistick, did I head to the fairy garden?
Not at first. I needed to know it worked before I risked all those mosquito bites. It’s a stick, so I rubbed it on my legs, wrists and the back of my neck and headed to Shakespear regional park, pleased that Guard Me actually smelled nice. First a hike with friends:
Next through the long grass:
Then I stood by the standing water:
Finally, the fairy garden. And I never got a single bite. Guard Me is amazing, and small enough to now have a permanent home in my go-everywhere camera bag.
Heading home, I told hubby that I had finally found a product that worked. Too bad I hadn’t shared it with him. While I was out searching for a mosquito, one found him, and his bite was itching. Alongside the Guard Me, is Heal Me. I rubbed it on his hand and it instantly stopped the itching. Just like it worked for me a few days ago when I wasn’t prepared to fight off a bug bite. To date, Heal Me is the best product I have used to stop an itchy bite from annoying me.
I also tried Clean Me, an all natural soap self contained in a stick that I can toss into my bag right after use. It lathers up quite a bit. All three products fit easily into the palm of my hand, are light weight, all natural and perfect for travel. At first I wondered how I would get 250 hand washes out of Clean Me, but after nearly three weeks of once a day use, not only are my hands soft, the stick is still looking pretty full. So, I think it will last 250 days, which just happens to correspond to our big 250 day around the world adventure in 2012. Too bad I didn’t have this space saver back then.
If you missed it from all this, my review of these Twistick products is two thumbs up. Clean Me cleaned me, Guard Me protected me from mosquitoes and anything else that might have been out there biting this week, and Heal Me stopped the itching immediately. I can’t think of a more perfect trio to take on any travel adventures, whether around the world or just a day in the park.
Along with Kiss Me Naked (Twistick’s equally fabulous natural lip balm), my travel essentials list now feels complete.
Now the good news. Twistick is giving away one Campers Set: Clean Me, Guard Me, Heal Me – open world wide.
