I received it in the mail a week or so ago, but just recently really got to put it to the test. We have AWFUL mosquitos here this spring! Although we have all gotten a couple of bites, I've been impressed by how well the bug spray actually works! The kids are relatively bite free, and except when I was walking through a grassy field, I feel like it's been working pretty good for me as well. My 2 year old loves it. Every morning at breakfast I hear 'bug spay? bug spay outside?' I don't know if he likes the smell of it, or if he understands that it works! It has a very strong smell to it, but not that 'asthma-attack inducing' smell that deet sprays have.
The sunscreen really got put to the test yesterday. I got the spf 30 version. I put some one at about 10am was outside for about 30 mintues, then I went for a 1.5 hour walk at noon, and didn't put any new sunscreen on. I burn very easily, especially the beginning of summer, and I didn't even turn pink! It rubs in easily, and I don't have the overwhelming urge to bathe my children the moment we come in the door to get it off of them. It smells nice, and it works...bonus!
|This is the package that I got.|
So if you're on the fence about natural sunscreen and/or bugspray, I highly recommend checking out Dr. Mercola's products. I haven't tried anything besides these two items, but if everything else is as good as these ones, I wouldn't hesitate to try them!
