BugOut – Colorful Mosquito Repellent Bracelets Keep The Bugs Away

Posted on Aug 4 2016 - 2:21am by Lanie

Keeping our children protected from mosquitoes is our 24 hour concern. But the problem is we just can’t look out for them a hundred percent all the time. And because of an ongoing fear of dengue, we sort to different kinds of mosquito repellent. Do you have one which really works for you?

We were recently introduced to BugOut which are branded mosquito repellent bracelets with refillable cartridges. They are available in different colors which will be liked by girls and boys and even adults can wear them too. How does BugOut fare against the hundreds of mosquito repellents available in the market?


BugOut is available in 2 types of designs but both have refillable slots. One is the SPRING design and the other is the SMILEY design.

These colors are generally preferred by older kids, girls and boys, while adults can choose these colors too depending on what they wear. The spring design makes it stretchable and fit the wrists of both kids and adults. It can also be worn in the ankle. It doesn’t

The SMILEY bracelets are available in playful and lighter colors of pink, green, yellow and blue. They look nice as accessories and the smiley face makes it appealing for younger kids.

Easy to put on and not easy to fall off. Unlike stick-on mosquito repellents which can either be too sticky on clothes or very easy to fall off, BugOut bracelets can easily be put on. The slots for the modules or cartridges are also secured and easy to fill in.

P_20160803_063402 resizedModules are not in contact with skin. Some brands use a different technology where the material of the bracelets already contain the substances to repel the mosquitoes. Some kids are not comfortable with the smell sticking on their skin and some may even be allergic.

Not too messy to use. Sprays and lotions may have a wider coverage over the body but some of us may find it too messy to use our hands to apply the lotion. Parents may also find it not convenient as they still need to apply the repellents to their kids. Some kids may not be too careful when they apply the lotion on their bodies or if they use spray, they may spray some on their eyes. BugOut can just be placed in a easy access location so they can just pick it up and wear it before going out to school. Same thing as with adults.

Smell. We can attest that compared to other brands, the smell of the modules filled in the bracelets are milder and more tolerable than other brands.

Note: Although we find BugOut greatly beneficial for younger kids, same as other mosquito repellent bracelet brands, we won’t recommend it to be worn by babies or very young kids who might be attracted to lick or eat the bracelets. BugOut recommends it for babies 2 years old onwards for wearing or for babies, parents can opt to put the bracelets as accessories to diaper bags, strollers or cribs where they won’t be reached by the little ones.

    I’ve tried lotion, spray and patches so this is something new to me. I will check this out.

    This looks interesting. We’ve been using lotion for the kids and i agree it’s kinda messy. My boys also tend to sweat a lot. This is worth a try.

    Uy this is a nice alternative to lotions! Most lotions are sticky, and I feel sorry for my son when I put repellant lotions on him because I know how hot it is!

    Thank you for the details, like the service span time. I hope that this is also clearly indicated on the label, as some might think it’s effective forever. Hehe

    I’ll check them out at Toys R Us! I’m sure my son would love a green Smiley!

    I am very dependent on repellents for my kids. This is something I would love to try.

    We tried the cheaper version of this kind but sadly didn’t work, my son still got new mosquito bites. This looks a good product to try. A bit expensive but seems worth it. Will definitely check this out.

    This is a good alternative to mosquito patches. We are using a spray type mosquito repellant but since my daughter is going to school, I need something that does not need to be re-applied. Thanks for this review!

    This seems interesting as the kids can just wear it themselves when they go out. Sometimes kasi, they go outside by themselves and I tend to not notice so d nalalagyan ng lotion.

    Will check this out, my son needs this one

    I’d love to get these for each member in our family. The number of dengue cases is alarming! Super scary.

    Such colorful bracelets. Love these more than the stickers as my boys would sometimes forget to remove them and they would float in our washing machine. Ihihi. Sometimes too, nahuhulog na lang sila.

    This type of mosquito repellant is so convenient! I think it will be perfect for my almost 3-year-old. Just curious though, is it organic?

    This is a hip way to protect us from bugs. Pretty cool too. ☺

    Ang cute naman nitong bracelets nito. So unlike those plain rubber bracelets!

    Nice they have pink and blue but think its big for a 5-yo girl (?)

    Mosquitoes love to bute my kids! I usually use the mosquito patch plus Off lotion since so far, effective. Will check this one out 🙂

    I really like this concept, and it’s colorful, perfect for kids. But is the bracelet enough to keep mosquitoes away from head to foot?

    I’d love to use this on my LO when she’s big enough to learn not to chew on this haha
