~An Insect Repellent like never before!~

If you’ve been following my blog, you would surely know that mosquitoes find my blood quite tasty. If there are five people around me, the mosquitoes will, most of time, be feasting on me alone. You would also know how alert I get when there is even one mosquito in the room or how I usually avoid being outdoors during ‘mosquito time’ (around 5.30pm to 7.30pm). For those of you who are new here; to summarize, mosquitoes have been a pain in my **** for a decade now. Yes, it’s almost ‘das saal’ since I came to India for good.

My pink scarf

I have used everything to keep the mosquitoes at bay indoors as well as outdoors, during these years; mosquito killer lamps, citronella incense cones, body sprays, room sprays, reed diffusers, lemongrass drops, vapourizers, multi frequency repellents, body creams or gels, natural repellents, repellent bracelets and patches, etc. While some gave me terrible headaches, some did work for a limited time. And, when we lit the coils and sticks, I was sure I would faint, with the smoke, before the mosquitoes did. This has been my plight for ten years now!

Hence, a few months ago, when Bugshield contacted me and gave me a brief on their technology, I was unmoved. Now, it was just ‘clothing’ to keep the mosquitoes away. But, curiosity got the better of me, and I agreed to receive their product only in exchange for a brutally truthful review. Honestly, I really did not believe that there could be a product that would keep the mosquitoes from sucking my blood for a long duration.

When I received the pink scarf, I used it for around a month before I finally put up the Instagram post.

As you can see, I was still doubtful about the whole coincidence of the mosquitoes being absent while the scarf was present. So, in the past three months, I have used it while sitting and waiting downstairs for my kids to finish playing, walking by the lakeside, visiting friends who lived in independent houses, etc. and it has worked. Just yesterday, I went to the lakeside for a walk with short sleeves during ‘mosquito time’ and I DID NOT GET BITTEN AT ALL!

Also, for three months, I have kept my scarf hanging on the cupboard handle and encountered no mosquitoes in my bedroom since then. The company does not guarantee this, but this was my observation and therefore, mentioned the same. After three months, a mosquito entered my bedroom and bit us, while the scarf still hangs in the same place.

Like I said, I’m continuously reviewing the clothing like a critic.

Bugshield tops for kids

I’m still not sure if I want to believe that this product was meant for people like me. It’s too good to be true. But I’m glad that it has helped me get lesser bites in the past few months. Sometimes, I forget to carry the scarf when getting out of the house. Nevertheless, I’m definitely enjoying outdoors more.


Bugshield Clothing uses a built-in technology that acts as an invisible and odourless protection from insects. The technology is meant to keep insects like mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers, and midges away, without emitting odours and chemicals. The active ingredient is tightly bonded into their fabrics, thereby making them long-lasting, too. The protective effect remains on the clothing even after several washes. Read more about their technology here. Dry cleaning or hot ironing could remove the active ingredients, and thus, should be avoided. Bugshield clothing is safe for use by children, pregnant women and infants.

My scarf does not need to be washed regularly, so, I’m hoping I can use it for a long long time. I will be buying other colours soon! I’ve already got a couple of tops for my kids because my kids attract mosquitoes, too!

I know that many of you wanted to buy this product and try it out for yourselves. And, some of you merely loved the colour and feel of my scarf. So, here you go! Check out their website and look for apparels that interest you. And, if you have already used products from Bugshield Clothing, I would love to hear your views!
