If you spend a lot of time outdoors, you should really think about trying EarthKind Stay Away Mosquitoes Insect Repellent Spray. I use other EarthKind Stay Away products in my house such as Stay Away Ants and Stay Away Mice. I love these products because they don’t contain harsh chemicals or poison. Instead, they are plant based and they work without harming your family or the environment.
Stay Away Mosquitoes Insect Repellent Spray
We spend a lot of time outdoors in the summer months. Our kids are always outside and we like to take hiking trips or spend time on or near the water. With that comes bugs to also include pesky mosquitoes and ticks. Ugh. The last thing I want to do is spray my family down with something that is full of chemicals that can be harmful. Stay Away Mosquitoes is skin safe and safe for the whole family (above 2 years old) and is also safe for pregnant women to use. It’s also DEET-free.
“EarthKind® has you covered. Their new Stay Away Mosquitoes® spray is a DEET-free, EPA registered, non-flammable and water-resistant formula made with Picaridin, which is bio identical to pepper, CDC recommended and reliably effective. Stay Away Mosquitoes is unscented and skin-friendly, meaning its gentle on the skin, without the worries of harsh chemicals.”
It also comes in a full size spray bottle and a little cute travel size!
The Repellent Spray
The spray is unscented. However, it does have a slight smell to it. It doesn’t smell bad though, it’s actually pleasant. It doesn’t linger though and after 20 minutes or so, it really doesn’t smell like you are wearing anything. I love this because as much as we need to use some kind of repellent, I don’t want to smell like it! Honestly, you don’t smell like you sprayed yourself with a bug repellent.
Applying the spray
Applying EarthKind Stay Away Mosquitoes is really easy. You don’t need to use that much. Just spray in on your exposed skin and then spread it over your skin. You can even use it on your face and neck. But if you do, spray a little in your palm and then using your hands, spread it over your face keeping it away from your eyes and mouth. You don’t want to actually spray your face. I am very happy that it doesn’t make my skin feel sticky. In fact, it doesn’t feel like there is anything on my skin.
The Travel Size
I absolutely love the travel size! It’s not in a travel size bottle exactly. Instead of a bottle, it’s a small rectangle that’s not very thick. But yet it is still a spray container. I think this is very cool and a really unique idea. This way, it is easily able to be carried in your pocket, purse, makeup bag or whatever. And still sprays and is applied the same way as the full size bottle. This is really great when you are traveling and you don’t have to carry the full size product with you.
Don’t let the size full you either. I have used the travel size on myself, my husband and my three kids twice and there is still some inside the same travel bottle – or rectangle spray container! It’s very convenient!
I have tried many different plant based bug repellents I have never found anything that works as well as EarthKind Stay Away Mosquitoes. This stuff works. With what we were using before, for the most part our skin stayed protected. But it doesn’t work as well as I would have liked. The first time we used the EarthKind Stay Away, not one of us had a single bite. The claim is that it has a 14 hour protection from mosquitoes and ticks. Yes, ticks too! It also repels biting flies, gnats, and chiggers for up to 8 hours.
While using this repellent, we weren’t bothered by mosquitoes or any of the other annoying bugs. And it works wonders at keeping ticks off of you. Ticks have been terrible this year. One day I found 3 ticks crawling on me. That was one day. Every once in while one of my kids would come in and they would have one on them too. Stay Away does an excellent job at keeping ticks away too.
Overall, I am very impressed with it. It works.
