Review of OFF! FamilyCare Smooth & Dry Insect Repellent8:23 AM
'Tis mosquito season at our hot and humid farm. Working in the garden, playing in the yard, or simply watching a bit of TV (yes, I get to once in awhile) brings about opportunities for the icky skeeters to harass my family and leave those nasty, itchy welts all over our bodies.
As if the irritation wasn't enough, reports of West Nile Virus have us more than concerned for the safety of our family. Is there any option for protection that isn't as oily or stinky as conventional bug sprays?
When we had the chance to add OFF! FamilyCare Smooth & Dry Insect Repellent to our list of products to review, I was psyched. From the makers of Skintastic, this was ONE product that wasn't going to wait its turn before I got around to trying it. I sprayed some on before my very late (11 p.m.) weeding routine in my overgrown garden, and headed out into the night. I could hear them buzzing around me -- but not one mosquito touched my skin!
How is this formula of OFF! better than others? In addition to the superb protection it offers, the smell is rather pleasant (just don't breathe it in, people.) But the best part is how it doesn't leave you feeling heavy, sticky, and like you just stepped out of a corn syrup fight. It really is dry. It really is light. It really does feel like a dusting of powder!
The fine mist comes out of the spray can with ease, so there's no goofs (like accidentally spraying into the eyes or mouth.) An effective way to ward off unwanted visitors, we give OFF! top shelf space in our outdoor arsenal!
