As you know we have started playing volleyball a lot in the evenings since we finally got our net up. (Not me of course, but the rest of the family.) Anyway, I sit out to watch. We are finding it best to play around dusk, but that is also mosquito time. I think mosquitoes love me! We can be sitting around a campfire when camping and I am always the first one to get attacked. My husband actually thought I was faking it one night because they don't bite him. My younger daughters also attract them.
Now I hate to use products with DEET, so I was really excited to get a chance to try the Coleman Insect Repellent SkinSmart DEET Free! I received an aerosol can 6oz., a spray bottle 5 oz., and a package of 16 pre-moistened wipes. Each of these will work for up to 8 hours. That works for me, because I am seldom exposed to mosquitoes that long! So, I tried it the other night while everyone was playing volleyball and it works. Obviously do not allow a child to apply it to themselves, always have an adult do this. And do not apply to a child under 1 year old. I do have to tell you, the spray does not leave you feeling oily, it dries quickly and it's odorless. SkinSmart is said to protect against the most common biting insects including mosquitoes, deer ticks and biting flies. Do not use the sprays around the face. The wipes are perfect for this! As usual follow all directions!
The active ingredient in SkinSmart is IR3535 and is an EPA registered additive with a proven track record of excellent safety and efficacy against a variety of biting insects. It is the most widely utilized active ingredient in insect repellents throughout Europe, where it has been safely marketed for more than 20 years.

Now I like SkinSmart so much that I asked if we could do a giveaway with my neighbors At the Fence, and they said "Yes!".
So one neighbor will receive exactly what I did. 1 Pump Spray, 1 Aerosol Spray, and 1 packet of wipes.
