#1 Best Mosquito Repellent

Sawyer Premium Mosquito Repellent.

Your diaper bag needs some safe mosquito repellent if you're going to venture into the woods this summer. Fortunately, mosquito and insect repellents have come a long way, no longer using DEET, and incorporating innovative and effective ingredients that do a great job repelling mosquitoes and ticks without feeling greasy and possibly having negative health effects. This Sawyer mosquito repellent using Picaridin, a new weapon in the arsenal against mosquitoes and ticks, and lasts for up to 8 hours after first application. In our testing, it worked really well without having too strong of an odor, too greasy of a feel on the hands or body, and we felt confident in its ability to protect against pesky bites and even more dangerous mosquito-borne illnesses like Zika.
