Two Bug Repellants That Actually Smell Good
Posted by Olessa Pindak
If your family is like mine, it splits evenly among those that never, ever get bit and those of us whose mere appearance on a deck seems to launch a feeding frenzy for mosquitos.
For mealtimes interrupted by slaps and scratches, two all-natural bug sprays have launched, just in time for summer's last weekend hurrah. Both are DEET free and protect skin with natural essential oils. Matthew Malin of Malin + Goetz did warn me that you have to really spray it, "Just coat yourself in it," he said. It smells so good, I'm happy to oblige.
Beekman 1802 Bug Stick, $12
Malin+Goetz Bug Spray, $20
