TSM Review: Coco Haven Bugs Away Cream

The weather the past few months have been very crazy. It has been so unpredictable that my kids have been suffering from on and off flu. Imagine all my three kids getting sick all at the same time, as well as the husband. The prevalence also of dengue fever is quite high right now. My youngest has a lot of mosquito bites here and there and what really irk me are the marks it leaves after the redness.

Honestly, I have tried almost all of the Citronella containing products there is in the market and yes, most works fine and others just a false claim. Thankful that I am, there are support groups of mommies where we/they share their experiences as well as those locally available products safe for our children.

There is one product that most of the mommies have been raving online, which is the brand Coco Haven. This is quite new to my ears and because they have good reviews about this, I tried it to my children too. I got their Bugs Away Cream and it has been a routine since then after their shower. We even finished one tub already and right now on our second. Why does our family loves Coco Haven Bugs Away Cream? Here are the reasons:

  • 100% Natural. This product is made up of natural ingredients that has minimal to no reaction to babies’ skin. In my children’s case, I haven’t had any skin reactions so I know it is safe for them. The ingredients are also printed at the back of the tub so there is transparency and you can easily pinpoint which to avoid just in case you and your kids are allergic to certain ingredients.
  • Mild Scent. I am very particular with scent with regards to what I use to them because strong smell will cause rhinitis also. Strong scent might cause skin irritation as well. This has bearable scent and citronella is just a secondary scent.
  • Therapeutic Claims. Yes, there are some therapeutic claims to it. I have seen how effective it is in eliminating insect marks on my youngest. In about three to four days the insect bites lighten which a generic Cebo De Macho cannot do. The formula is not too sticky just enough to moisturize the skin and prevent it from drying.
  • Very Effective. So I had to wait until this long to check how effective this is against bite marks. During our recent travel, I applied it in the morning around 8ish and didn’t reapply until 8ish in the evening. I was quite worried already as we went to places where there are bushes, trees, grass and basically where mosquitoes breed. Surprisingly upon going to the hotel, I immediately checked my children’s legs and arms, and not a single NEW insect bite. That is how this product is impressive; it stayed on for good 12 hours at least.
  • Locally available. So who is not into local products? This is how I support our local products and at the same time proud that there are promising products that at par with international brands.
