Itchy and Scratchy Show...

After 2 days of fun in the sun I found myself covered with insanely annoying and itchy remnants of mosquito bites. Now, I did a little research and discovered that only female mosquitoes are capable of biting so it's technically correct to call them little bitches. These monsters have wreaked havoc on my skin... destroying my arms and legs in the process - - one even being brazen enough to bite my cheek!

With the holiday weekend quickly approaching I feel like responsible hosts should provide their guests with OFF or at least have the decency to burn citronella candles. Nothing is worse than enjoying the weather, music, food and drinks of an outside event only to spend every other second swatting at your skin. It's a buzz kill. *I just scratched my arm and thigh while writing this... I hate mosquito bites* For some reason I don't remember them ever being this annoying. Maybe they're back with a vengeance because of the late summer weather... I guess they're just making up for lost time.

Because I've been spending all of my free time incessantly scratching my body (yearning to dip myself into a bath of oatmeal and calamine lotion) I did some snooping to find the new products that OFF offers.

1. OFF PowerPad Lamp & Latern - Provides up to 4 hours of bug free enjoyment for an area up to 15' x 15'.

2. OFF Yard & Deck Area Repellent VI - Perfect for your backyard, deck, camping or bbq area. This can be sprayed on your area prior to entertainment and you can enjoy hours of bug free fun.

3. OFF Active - Offers sweat resistant coverage for 6-8 hrs and comes in cans 3-9 oz.

4. OFF Family Care Insect Repellent I (Smooth and Dry) - Up to 6 hours of protection with a smooth a dry feel .

5. OFF Family Care Insect Repellent II (Clean Feel) - For those want the bugs gone but sans the typical "off" odor this is perfect for you. This comes in an odorless formula and doesn't have the typical greasy feel of most insect repellents.

6. OFF Repellent VI Towelettes - Perfect to keep in your car or purse. These offer up to 2 hours of bug free peace of mind and are great for quick trips outside or applying the repellent exactly where you want.

~ Keep in mind that mosquitoes are most active at dusk & dawn

Here's to hoping everyone can have a bug free weekend!

Oh girl..mosquitos are horrible here. Did you see that little thing that clips on you made by off. I blogged about that a few weeks ago and never got one. I dont' know how much that thing cost but I need one ASAP in Louisiana!

Sincerely,

Go.

I did see that on their site but they had so many directions on how to use it that I passed over it. lol... My mosquito bites are no longer itching but now I'm left with the remains of my all night scratch fests. Hopefully the skin will heal sooner than later.
