Bugs Be Gone-I have Green Goo

Summer time is here.  What do you do when it is Summer?  We hang out outdoors.  But in Houston, it has been raining cats and dogs.  We can't seem to catch a break.  Rain = mosquitos.  We already have to worry about the sun, and now we have to worry about the Zika virus. 
Thanks to Green Goo for sending me samples of their product to review.  All opinions stated are my based on my personal experience.

I have a 4 year old who loves the outdoors.  She cannot be contained.  She gets bumps, scraps, bites, and everything else with being a kid just being a kid.  I have no worries about that but what I do have worries about are insect bites, cuts, and scrapes that could lead to illnesses or disease. One of my friend's son got a cut and ended up in the hospital almost dying from a staph infection.  I recently had a spider bite which I thought was a harmless mosquito bite that grew into a really bad infection.  We, as parents, can take things to lightly now a days.  There is also the threat of what we put on our kids, those chemicals harming them as well.  The things we put on them to protect them, actually harming them.  So more and more, I am doing more research into all natural products.

What I liked most about Green Goo was that it was multi-purpose.  I can carry this in my pocket on our walks, runs, or even on our bike rides.  My daughter likes it because it doesn't sting like other medicine.  She likes when I massage it on. 

It helps relieve symptoms associated with:

I have been lightly spraying Bugs Be Gone on my legs.  I wear a lot of dresses to work and on my lunch hour I like to walk the park.  Those pesky mosquitoes had been attacking me on my walks.  The other mosquito sprays were not as effective.  Also, I could not spray my toes.  The sprays always messed up my nail polish, not sure why?  Bugs Be Gone has been working.
