Top 10 Best Insect Repellent Lotions in Malaysia 2022

Repelling bothersome and scary insects out of your bedroom, garage, or any other closed space can be easy as you only have to spray upwards for a few seconds for maximum efficiency of most insect repellent sprays, but how about open spaces?

Worry not, as there is creation such as an insect repellent lotion that you can apply to your skin. How convenient! Just like applying sunscreen or any skincare product, you can be free from all the bites and annoying little insects by using the repellent lotions. So, here are the top 10 insect repellent lotions that you can get in Malaysia.

How to choose the right insect repellent lotion

Choosing a lotion that repels any type of insect can be scary as you can be unsure of product features. Therefore, you should check the effectiveness, volume, and reviews of the product to avoid being underwhelmed by the product.

  1. Effectiveness

Depending on the situation and the settings that you are in, the safest bet is to choose a repellent lotion that will last you hours upon application, so you do not have to keep reapplying for maximum efficiency.

  1. Volume

Checking the volume of the lotion is important to make sure that you have enough throughout your time in need because most insect repellent lotion is packed in a small tube. This can leave you with unprotected skin if you have finished the lotion without realising it.

  1. Review

Other than knowing the quality of the service, you can also check the effectiveness of the insect repellent lotion through reviews. As most of them are from real buyers and can be brutally honest, any lotion with a relatively good review can increase your trust in the lotion to work.

While DEET products may be more familiar by name and their chemical smell, sprays with 20 percent picaridin, like Sawyer Products, offer comparable protection without the harsh odor and oily feeling on your skin.

The Sawyer Squeeze was (by far) the most common Pacific Crest Trail water filter this year – for the fifth year in a row. It’s a $39, 3 oz / 85 g hollow fiber filter that rids your drinking water of protozoa and bacteria (and floaties). It can be used with Sawyer bags (included with the filter) or with compatible water bottles (Smartwater is the bottle of choice for many hikers).

SAWYER MINI WATER FILTER, $22 This has been my water filter of choice for years now. The bags can be iffy — I have had a few break – so carry a couple. However, the filter itself is reliable, light and inexpensive. -Logan
