Summer starting to wane, but the bugs have surfaced thanks to a drought in my region followed by several onslaughts of rain.
I always hated going to summer parties and late night bonfires after spending hours doing the obligatory farming. (I call it farming do to the cleansing, exfoliating, moisturizing, blow drying, plucking, shaving, slathering and plastering that goes on.) After all that work, you douse yourself in icky smelling bug repellent and smell like chemical warfare.
Now, there are offerings that are a little more smell friendly. Intelligent Nutrients Organic Bug Repellent Serum makes a little go a long way without the funk. Malin and Goetz Bug Spray will also do the trick for the beauty savvy maven. For those on a Beauty Budget, Cold Spring Apothecary All Natural Bug Spray is easier on the wallet and comparable to Intelligent Nutrients offering.
