Bioré GUARD Mos Block Serum counter

This amazing Bioré GUARD Mos Block Serum is now available in Malaysia fro RM24.90; keeps mozzies away for up to 8 hours

Be as it may, we live in a country that is effectively the happy hunting grounds for mosquitoes with the hot humid conditions encouraging them to spawn in absurd numbers. Fortunately,  KAO came up with a unique serum a couple of years ago dubbed as Bioré GUARD Mos Block Serum that can be applied to skin that repels the blighters for up to 8 hours at a time though it was only available in Thailand a couple of years ago. 

Last year,  it made its way to Singapore, Taiwan and Hong Kong and I went to the trouble of actually hunting this down at a pharmacy in Taipei. Fortunately, it has made its way to our shores this year and –  Bioré GUARD Mos Block Serum is now finally available on store shelves nationwide in Malaysia.

Bioré GUARD Mos Block Serum launch

As a matter of perspective, KAO Malaysia shared that there were 123,133 cases of dengue in 2023 in Malaysia which is an 86.3% rise compared to the previous year with dengue-related mortalities increasing by 78.6% with the most cases being in Selangor. In the first quarter of 2024, there were a whopping 41,565 reported cases and 28 fatalities due to dengue fever complications. To say that mosquitoes are a threat is an understatement of epic proportions which is why Bioré GUARD Mos Block Serum looks to be a game changer. 

What is Bioré GUARD Mos Block Serum

While mosquito repellent compounds already exist in the market that often rely on DEET (N-diethyl-meta-toluamide) or oftentimes citronella, they often give off a distinctive strong smell or often consist a greasy compound that ends up feeling sticky when applied while also affecting those with sensitive skin. 

Fortunately, Bioré GUARD Mos Block Serum resolves all these irksome side effects in an effective fashion. It comes in 100g tubes with the compound itself looking and feeling like body lotion without relying on DEET or strong smelling compounds and has the added benefit of creating an anti-landing surface that deters mosquitoes from even landing on your skin while also drying into a pleasant, non-greasy finish.

While it does come in a Fresh Lavender or Sweet Blossom scented variant, the smell itself is mild enough to not be noticed and a single application repels mosquitoes for up to 8 hours at a time which is more than enough for a kipper. In Malaysia, the Bioré GUARD Mos Block Serum will retail for RM24.90 and can be acquired at all pharmacies and retailers nationwide.
