All Terrain Review & Giveaway



Back in 2007, fishing at the river and pregnant the mosquitoes were terrible along the banks. In the boat they didn't bite so bad, and aware of how dangerous deet was, I used store products that didn't contain deet. Those products fell short and I was still becoming a buffet for mosquitoes.

Needless to say I wanted to take my son fishing and I did not want to use dangerous products on him. So our fishing became limited. I wish I had known All Terrain then.



This week we ventured out to a wooded fishing hole with both children. I applied All Terrain, it has a strong cintrella smell in case your sensitive to smells. Guess What? We never got a mosquito bite. We saw mosquitoes swarming, it was like they didn't believe was was going on. All Terrain insect repellent seriously works and is natural. I can handle the smell as long as we are outside.

Using this product you can be sure you are not harming your children and the environment with harsh chemicals. All Terrain insect repellent comes in a handy flat spray bottle that fits nicely into your shirt or pants pocket.

So we had the opportunity to test the All Terrain antiseptic gel also, we did get to test it the same day we went fishing, my son fell skinning his hand. I asked him did it hurt of burn when I applied it? He said, no. It had no strong smell and it didn't bother him, all good in my book:)

We also, are in the process of trying the All Terrain Sunscreens. So far so good, it comes spray bottle, that I love. It's not sticky, pasty, or gloppy. I don't smell any strong smell from it which is a very good thing, we have sensitive sinuses.

All in all, All Terrain Products have met my expectations of products I would like my family to use and met our needs. I love that they don't test on animals and are using natural materials.

Clinical tests at the University of Guelph showed that the herbal armour repellents worked to prevent bites for two hours. That's amazing! I'd like to try that, and I'm interested in their latex-free bandage strips as well.

My daughter has very very sensitive skin & can't wear most bandaids, we're not totally sure if it's the adhesive or the plastics, but I would love to try the Assorted Fabric Bandages!

Thank you SO much for this opportunity, we stink like DEET right now due to a really bad mosquito hatch this year :(
