incognito products don’t contain any deet and are 100% made from natural ingredients. So it was with great excitement that I packed the range, which was previous to this trip unknown to me.
I had 2 incognito insect repellent sprays, a Hair & Body wash, Incense Sticks, a Loofah Soap, a Natural Crystal Deodorant and an essential oil. They also sent me a wonderful portable long lasting impregnated mosquito net.
The advice I was given was to start to wash with the Loofah soap a week or so before entering the mosquito area, which I did so before departing for Sumatra. I had a lot going on whilst I was there, travelling around, sleeping rough, washing as mentioned in rain water, generally it was rough camping with extreme heat and humidity.
I washed twice a day with the soap, applied the sprays, lit an incense stick before I got my head down and placed a few spots of the oil on my clothes – and I have to say I was amazed. Everywhere I go abroad I’m bitten, it’s the price you pay and accept. But using these products in this very challenging and tough environment they all performed very well. They gave me these products free to test and I’m not under any contract to say this or that, I’m speaking from my personal experiences.
If something is good and it works then it deserves all the praise it can get, and during those two tough weeks incognito products helped me survive the constant threat of mosquito bites that could have drained me and brought a quick halt to my trip. You have to trust your gear, this is something I live by and work by. Trust is earned, not given and without these amazing products I may not have come home in such great shape bite wise.
I have suffered through dehydration since back home and that was the only slight illness I had coming back from one of the most amazing rainforest habitats anywhere in the world. I not only recommend you use these products but I’d go as far as saying you cannot travel to Mosquito regions without taking some if not all of the products I’ve tested.
I thank everyone at incognito for providing me with such wonderful products, as well as all of your help and support for my trip to Sumatra. I wish you all well, many thanks
