Summer is my favorite time of year for so many reasons. I love the warm weather, the beautiful scenery, the boat trips the sound of kids laughing in the park, the bike rides, beach time and the list goes on and on. There is one thing about summer I don’t like, the bugs. I hate those pesky mosquitoes that leave itchy welts all over me and my daughter.

Last weekend I took a weekend trip to Beaver Island with my sister and her family. The house was on an inland lake and the scenery was beautiful but come dusk the bugs decided to pray on the vacationers. I decided to try the Bug Bandit from Fairy Tales, an all natural body spray designed to safely repel bugs. I sprayed down myself, my sister, my niece and my nephew. The bug spray smelled great and worked great too. I didn’t get any bug bites.

The bug spray is non-toxic, Deet-free, pesticide-free and repels bugs just as effective as the chemical laden products. I loved the fact that the bugs weren’t eating me alive and I didn’t smell or feel like a walking chemical plant. The spray is infused with natural rosemary oil, citronella, lemongrass, peppermint, cedar bark cinnamon and other natural oils to keep the skin soft, moisturized and bug free.

The Bug Bandit is easy to use, just shake it up and spray. The spray can be used on children over 3 and adults. The spray is very affordable, you can get an 8oz bottle for $13.95 or a 2oz bottle for $3.49. It’s a healthy affordable way to repel bugs. Fairy Tales also distributes all natural shampoo, conditioner, lice repellent, hair spray and more. You can find out more about Bug Bandit and Fairy Tales Hair Care at, or follow the brand on Facebook at Fairy Tales Hair Care or Twitter at @fairytalesinc
