Smart Stuff™ Natural Deet-Free Insect Repellant

Date Wed, May 16 2018


You might not be familiar with Smart Stuff. I certainly wasn’t before I had the opportunity for this review campaign. Smart Stuff produces products like sunscreen and bug spray that don’t contain the typical chemicals, which may not be healthy for us humans (and often aren’t for the environment, either!)

SMART STUFF™ was born from necessity, and based on one simple concept: well-designed products should work great day in and day out without compromising your health. While the concept was simple, the execution and realization of a full line of lifestyle and skin care products that met this principle is anything but.

I was able to sample Smart Stuff™ Natural Deet-Free Insect Repellant in exchange for my honest opinion.

Now, most bug sprays have a certain smell because of the active ingredient, Deet. Because Smart Stuff lacks this ingredient, that particular smell isn’t present. It’s got a bit of a minty smell. That’s not all that’s there, but it’s definitely noticeable. I am one of the few people who doesn’t enjoy mint, so I don’t particularly love the first few seconds after I apply the Smart Stuff bug spray, but the smell doesn’t last.

Rather than being an aerosol, this bug spray comes in a spritz bottle, and it’s easy to spray arms and legs; although, you may want to enlist some help for those hard-to-reach areas. The spray isn’t sticky like some, and it dries quickly.

I haven’t had a lot of opportunity to use the Smart Stuff™ Natural Deet-Free Insect Repellant. Soon after I got it, heat and humidity dropped — and so did the bugs. This is good for anyone who doesn’t like insects, but it means I wasn’t really in need of bug spray. Plus, I would forget to use it every time.

I finally remembered to spray some of the repellant on me before heading out to a hiking park for a few friends. Temperatures had risen again, and we were near water, so this was a perfect opportunity to test out Smart Stuff™ Natural Deet-Free Insect Repellant.

I saw plenty of bugs, and we walked right through clouds of them. Only my arms were bare, but I returned home without a single bug bite, which is pretty impressive. I usually wind up with a few itchy bites that I didn’t even realize happened at the time.

I wish I had a tiny bottle of Smart Stuff™ Natural Deet-Free Insect Repellant that I could keep in my purse so I would never remember to use it. Or so I could spray it on when I suddenly realize that it’s still warm enough for bugs to be buzzin’ around. Ha!

I’ll just have to pay enough attention to the weather and my activities. If you live in an area where insects are often a problem, I definitely recommend you check out this product.
