My first trial was one from Kokubo that's anti-mosquito and since I was living in China when I first got hold of this Japanese product, it was a real good one especially I did used it in the bedroom. The scent is nice, just like air freshener!

I just got the second one for anti-insect yesterday from City Super (a supermarket in Hong Kong). Apparently, Sasa sells it as well although I haven't check it out at their stores. I did google for it and found it on Sasa.com so for those in the U.S., it's good news for you, if you need one of these. I just discovered that there can be quite a bit of insects in Hong Kong in the summer months, something new to me! And, especially since I live by the seashore, you can imagine what's it like if my windows should be opened! For now, they stay shut in the night!

For those who are going camping, this is certainly a great one to have in your tent!



I'm happy with the brand and am testing out the one for anti-insect right now. It costs some HK$48 (around US$6) a bottle and last for at least 45 days. The beauty of it is that there is a cap on this one so you won't have to use it when you don't need to. The bottle can be sealed again and reuse at some later date (esp. if you just take it along for camping!). 

Interestingly enough, I never knew such products exist until recently. I knew there's those awful smelling insect-repellent where you spray on the insect and then there is air freshener. But, one that combines the two? Wow, only the Japanese can come up with something like this!

I also noted that Kokubo has some 41 products listed for sale on Sasa.com and some of it are a novelty. Check them out if you're interested: click here.
