Want to decrease your chances of getting bitten? Stick to light-colored clothing and avoid overexertion. (Dark hues, excessive breathing, and sweat are bug magnets).

Birchbox Breakdown

It’s an unfortunate fact of life: Mosquito season is also barbecue season. Fortunately, we’ve discovered this citrusy salve. The powerful, yet natural formula keeps blood-sucking pests at bay without irritating your skin. Even better, it also helps relieve itchiness from previous bites.

How to Use

The workhorse of this potent lotion is IR3535, developed by Merck in the 1970s and recognized as one of the most powerful repellents for its long-term effectiveness against mosquitoes and ticks. Natural repellents, including lemon grass, citronella, and lavender provide backup support.

Smells great, but not for intense bug situations

I bought this exclusively for mosquitos and it did not work as well as I thought it would. We had to buy some mosquito fighting candles and that helped a bit. I will continue to try it out to determine a better result about this product.

Smells good, works even better!

Love this bug repellent! Not only does it smell really good, but it makes your skin feel nice and soft. I put it on before taking my dog to the park this evening, and I noticed a BIG difference in mosquito bites, and even those annoying little gnats (some people call them "no-see'ums"). A great product!
