Rekito

Mosquitoes repellent are so essential to me and Sarah because the mosquitoes just love us so much. We have been using the Johnson anti-mosquito lotion for the past nine months and we really find it handy; it is so effective yet it has a pleasant fragrant.

Now that we need to restock it but unfortunately it’s not available in Malaysia; and the cost to courier from Singapore is just too high. Therefore, we’d have to settle for this new product from Pureen and hopefully it is as effective as the Johnson brand.

Since there are a few out break cases of Dengue fever in K.L, I better get my kids some repellent too!

Take care!

hmm... i've never tried applying the lotion type repellent on my Ryan.

But, I've been using this repellent spray.

ChloeRuoyi said...

Never seen this before... hope it works for you. I'm quite thankful that my home is mosquito-free cos the mozzies just LOVE us (C and I).

agnes said...

am still quite hesitate to use repellent since we all have SENSITIVE skin and dunno what's the actual ingredients inside?? :-S

so my mom normally let chloe wear long pants (thin material) or legging at home daily and definitely no sleeveless for her??!!

hahahaha~why not install the net at home if really got lotsa mosquitoes instead of applying those everyday??

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Dear mommies,
Thanks for all your comment.
Actually we only applied the mosquitoes repellent when we are at park, at zoo or places which covered with tress and bushes.
And touch wood, we are lucky that the mozzies seldom "attack" us in our house:-)
About the effectiveness of the Pureen brand, I will update you all once I started to use it, stay tune:-)


Mommy Gwen:
I bought the Pureen mozzie repellent from a pharmacy near by my house. Actually the price is slightly higher than the one sell at Giant.

mNhL:
I really hate mozzies. If once I got it, I will picit it sampai the blood comes out. Very cruel hor:-)

Sha:
You also using J&J brand now? Very useful right? I love it so much!

Kylie:
Moz Away. How much is it? Thanks

Doreen:
Thanks for giving me the link of the repellent spray. Maybe I should try it next time.

MeRy said...

I saw this brand advertised on Newspaper...new brand, dun think Sibu got sell it yet.

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Mery:
Yea, it is the latest brand from Pureen. Actually it was so ngam that I am in the process of searching for another brand of mozzies repellent and I saw the ad from the Star, so we decided to buy it and give a try.
Is Ryan using any mozzies repellent?

Oliveoylz said...

I've been searching for the J&J repellant you recommended to me some time back. Can't find it at Watson's or Guardian Singapore. All out of stock wor...very "laku" hor? Unfortunately, it hasn't reached M'sian shores, coz I've been keeping an eye for it...I saw the Pureen one at Jusco, but hesitated to buy it. Do try it out soon and let us know how eddective it is ya?

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Olive:
Is it, out of stock? Then, the J&J brand is extremely laku wor.
I am still wondering why we can't find it here, so sad! The lotion is extremely effective!
Anyway, I will surely let you know whether the Pureen is as good as J&J once I started using it.

When it is mozzie season, we do find mozzies bite Yan Yan and Heng Heng at home, our area here got denggi cases some more. When they was a baby I use to apply this kind of lotion to them, different brand, coz very sum tong see them kena bite. I think I need to buy some liao

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Moon:
Oh, maybe is better to get a mozzie lotion standby at home.
Is true leh, is quite sam tong seing the bite on their legs. For Sarah, the bite will swollen and takes days to recover.

Debbie Y said...

hey, same goes to Xandria. Her 2 legs full with the scar which bite by mosquito. Probably i should get one at home too...

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Debbie:
Ai yo, poor Xandria. I am sure she scratch badly the moment the mozzie bite her. For Sarah, she will do so till I apply Zambuk on her.
For me, I will use the mozzie lotion whenever I go to park or places that have a lot of tress (tend to have more mosquitoes there). So far the J&J worked very well.
