It feels like summer time, and for me, that means mosquito season.
What can I say? The mosquitos love me; even when I'm wearing bug spray with 25% DEET, they still manage to get me. :) Since I can't always avoid bug bites, I've found that the Bug Bite Relief stick--which comes in a lip balm like tube--generally diminishes itchiness. It's not a magic potion to cure all mosquito bites, and you do have to keep reapplying it, but overall, I think it works quite well.
Be warned, this stuff has a fairly strong herbal and citrus smell, but I think it's worth it. I don't have much experience with any other Burt's Bees products, so I am pretty impressed by this one.
Anyway, if you (or a loved one) are afflicted with bug bites, then I hope you found this helpful. I wish I would have known about this product years ago, so I wanted to share my quick and dirty review with you.
What are your best tips to combat or heal mosquito bites? Let me know, and I'll be sure to try it out!
