mosquitoes, meaning the buggers are now swarming even in the middle of
the day. And there’s no sign of it letting up until fall.
I have no intention of mixing DEET into my kids sunscreen, so
I’m grateful that California Baby has an
all-natural SPF 30+ Sunscreen Citronella Bug Blend to protect our family’s
lily-white skin from both dangerous rays and flying biters.
The thick PABA-and-chemical free lotion with SPF 30 is great for us non-tanners, and
my skin can attest to its effectiveness after a hot day in the garden. The bugs stayed away too,
repelled by the fresh-smelling, effective citronella, lemongrass and
cedar wood botanical repellents. Not a scary chemical among them. This sunscreen / insect repellent combo may cost
a little more, but when you consider that it replaces the need for
separate bottles of sunscreen and bug spray — and when you think about the time I save not having to spread two products on three
kids — this Bug Blend is definitely finding a permanent home with us. –Christina
