SMART STUFF Natural Insect Repellent Review


The one thing that makes me happy about Fall, is the weather. I love the smells, the crisp air, and the fact that I can walk outside without feeling like I am going to melt. Unfortunately, with the weather still being in that weird in between- mild warm, but not hot & cool, but not cold mix, there is one thing that I absolutely hate: mosquitoes. 

Of course, with mosquitoes, the only way to get rid of them is to either stay indoors or use a mosquito repellent spray. Many people use the latter. I, on the other hand, can't. When I was pregnant with Lil Man in 2010, I found out I was allergic to deet; which one of the main ingredients in mosquito repellents. I really didn't care, since I'm not a big outdoorsy person. Unfortunately with current mosquito population near doubling every night when I take my dog out, and the fact that Zika virus is a thing, I knew a few months ago I needed to find something that would be deet-free, natural, safe for me and the whole family, and didn't make me want to vomit from the smell. 

A few weeks ago, SMART STUFF gave me an opportunity to review their natural insect repellent, and after reading about the company, I knew it was a product and company that I could stand behind.

About the company*
When you are a parent, you want the best for your child, and when two doctors and parents of an autistic child became increasingly frustrated with the misleading ingredient labels and dangerous chemicals found in products in their home, they knew there had to be a better, safer alternative.

Their better, safer alternative developed into SMART STUFF

SMART STUFF is based on one simple concept: well-designed products should work great day in and day out without compromising your health. Every product in the SMART STUFF line is free of synthetic chemicals, free of artifical colors and fragrances, and free of Parabens, PABA, Petroleum, Phthalates, & Gluten. Quite simply, SMART STUFF only has what it needs: natural botanical essential oils and minerals. SMART STUFF products were developed in consultations with Physicians and best of all, they are not tested on animals. 

As an added bonus, a portion of the profits from SMART STUFF goes towards supporting Luv Michael, a non-profit dedicated to educating, training and employing individuals with Autism.


Developed to repel mosquitoes and deer ticks, the formula does not contain deet, rather natural botanical essential oils and extracts, is eco-friendly and biodegradable, and is safe and effective for adults and children alike.


My thoughts
Honestly, I really liked the Natural Insect Repellent. It was easy to apply, and actually smelled rather nice- like a pepperminty smell. I applied it several times before taking my dog out at night, and only got bit once; I usually get bit several times. It didn't make me itch, which was nice. It wasn't heavy, and the pepperminty smell dissipated after a few minutes. 

Due to the ingredients and how well it worked, I would recommend the SMART STUFF Natural Insect Repellent to anyone looking for a safer, environmental friendly repellent for their family.
