Mosquitno Bands: Keep Mosquitoes at Bay with Earth Friendly Citronella Wrist Bands!



Attention all outdoor lovers: Mosqitno Bands to the rescue! Fall season is upon us and mosquitoes are in full force outside. Keep mosquitoes at bay during your outdoor bootcamps, power walks, evening strolls, jogs, and of course your runs with Mosquitno Bands. The best part is they are super easy to use. Just toss one in your gym bag or store near your headphones so you can put it on before you head out. Of course you can use for all your outdoor activities from gardening to camping, and more. Mosquitno Bands are all-natural, non-toxic and DEET free. You can use each bracelet for 6 days and they recycle the bracelets! Keep reading to learn all about the Mosquitno Bands!



We used ours on our recent trip to Mexico and they worked wonders. We were in THICK jungle and near the water so there were definitely mosquitoes about. We went unbitten and the bands are light, small, and easy to pack in your pack if you are backpacking! Mosqunitno also offers cute citronella Spotz that are easy to stick on your body and they stay put! Available in cute styles and solid colors, the kids will love them!


Mosquitno wristbands are made of silicone rubber infused with 100% citronella oil. Each Mosquitno Bands contains enough citronella to effectively repel bugs for up to 150 hours of exposure (or six days), and each comes in a re-sealable pouch to preserve effectiveness between uses.  Mosquitno Bands are available in eight solid colors, camouflage, tie-dye and glow-in-the-dark in sizes for adults and children.  


The citronella oil smells great and is directly infused into Mosquitno Bands works by masking human scents – carbon dioxide and sweat - that attract bugs. Mosquitno Bands are more effective than citronella candles because they are worn on the body and the citronella scent is not dissipated by the wind.

Mosquitno Bands retail for only $3.99. All Mosquitno products are non-toxic, chemical-free and DEET-free. Used Mosquitno Bands can be mailed back to the company for recycling in return for two new, free Mosquitno Bands (for every 10 returned). Mosquitno Bands are available at retailers nationwide or online at www.mosquitnoband.com.



Mosquitno was created by health-conscious nature-lovers to help people young and old enjoy what they love to do outdoors while keeping bugs away with fun, safe and easy repellent products. Mosquitno contributes to UNICEF to help children worldwide affected by Malaria, Dengue Fever, West Nile and other mosquito-borne illnesses. Mosquitno also supports instilling a love of outdoor activities and outdoor education programs with donations to several camps including Camp Ogichi Daa Kwe and Camp Kooch-i-ching in Minnesota

Be sure to check the new 2014 Firm workout calendar on Fitness Favorites now.


The FIRM: Boot Camp 3-in-1 Mix
Tamela Hastie, Carissa Foster, Dale Brahbam, Tracie Long, Pam Cauthen, Jennifer Carmen, Heidi Tanner, Allie Strickland, Nancy Tucker, 2014

This dvd contains 2 complete workouts (42/ 37 min) that can combined for a 71 minute sweatfest. This is FIRM parts dvd and all routines are total body strength workouts.
 The DVD is fully chaptered. You will need a small ball, weights, ankle weights, and a step for this routine.

Workout One: After a fun ball warmup & stretch, exercises include floor core work, pushups, plank series, T bar rows, bi work, bent rows, squat series, over head press, leg press, French press, tri kickbacks, lunge-dip-squat sequence, tri dips, pec fly, rib cage pullover & tri extensions, box pushups, low back work, crunches, 
and a final stretch with pelvic floor contractions. 

Workout Two: After a 4 limb warm up and stretch, exercises include a ball sports drill, squats, pliets, standing glute raises, lat row, tri kickbacks, heavy bi work, leg press, upright row, clean & press, front & side raise, upper back fly & rhomboid pinch, pushups, bridge work, floor core work, and a final stretch. 

I rate these high intermediate routines that you can make more or less challenging depending on the weights you use. The pace is great and my heart rate stayed up while getting in a great strength workout. Both routines are very well balanced & I felt all my muscles got worked. 
I received this dvd to review.

eSalon: Customized Salon Quality Hair Coloring at Home


Thanks to BzzAgent I had the pleasure of trying eSalon. eSalon is customized hair color mixed just for you and delivered right to your door for a great price. WAY cheaper than driving to a salon, you can get customized hair color now from eSalon. You can save 50% and try eSalon for only $10 - click here. And save 50% off a recurring order here


At eSalon, they don’t pre-make anything. Their hair color is crafted, one-by-one, with the exact formula your eSalon colorist feels will best attain your goals. Two people with differing hair profile characteristics might need entirely different formulas or application instructions to achieve the same desired look. This is why we feel pre-filled color in a box couldn’t possibly work for everyone.

Another product they offer that I LOVE and could not find anywhere else is their Color Kiss temporary root touch up. It looks like a mascara container and covers up your gray roots or grow out with just a swipe of the wand. Between your eSalon colorings I use Color Kiss. I looked everywhere for red shades & couldnt find it until eSalon. I love this and its a life saver! I can finally cover up those ugly grays between colorings.
