BEAT IT! All Natural Insect Repellent

14th January 2013

Beat It! All Natural Insect Repellent is a DEET-free and chemical-free alternative to the dangerous and damaging chemical-laden options on the market. This all-natural insect repellent is intended to repel more than just mosquitos, in fact it’s intended to repel all biting bugs. There are no artificial ingredients used and the unique blend of lemon eucalyptus, lemongrass, cedar, citronella, mint oils, water and coconut oil is effective for up to 8 hours. It’s vegan, cruelty-free and even safe to use on infants and pets!

The Verdict

We stayed in Phuket (pictured below), where there were copious amounts of tiny mosquitos. Even if I was outside momentarily without repellent on, I was bound to get somewhere in the region of 3-5 bites. I avoid using repellents that contain DEET or other toxic chemicals, so I rely on natural alternatives. Some have been moderately effective, but Beat It! was 100% effective during our stay in Thailand.

I tried the 4 oz spray pump aluminum bottle from Beat It!. The robust aluminum bottle is perfect for packing in your checked luggage. After numerous international trips, we’ve had no leaks or damage to the bottle. The spray has a lovely and refreshing lemongrass aroma with other citrus notes. It also left my skin feeling very smooth after applying, thanks to the coconut oil in it. I used it frequently and never noticed any marking, staining or damage to any of my clothes.

One application would usually last an entire day for me. While I found it to be effective for long stretches, you will need to reapply after showering or swimming. When I had Beat It! on, I always felt safe and relieved that I wouldn’t have to worry about mosquitos (and other biting bugs).
