In the summertime, there are few things that can put a damper on a good time quite like a mosquito bite, except for multiple bites, which is usually the case with blood-thirsty critters. That’s precisely why we’re itching to share the 7 insect-repelling products below: Each one is DEET-free, will leave you virtually invisible to the little suckers and smells more like girly perfume than an overly cautious boy scout.
