Fun Outdoors with eco-armour™ “outdoor” botanical insect repellent body spray & moisturizer

While I enjoy the beauty of nature, I'm not exactly what you'd consider the "outdoorsy" type. Mostly because I hate insects (some might say I have a bit of a phobia, but I digress). Despite my aversion to the great outdoors, as a mommy I want to foster an appreciation for nature and the desire to play out in the fresh air in my children. Unfortunately, I think I may have unintentionally passed on my great disdain for bugs to London (and I can honestly say unintentionally because I go to great lengths to put on a brave face when she is present and we are confronted with a fly, spider, etc.). I tried really hard to not make my fear her fear, but to no avail; she freaks the heck out EVERY time she even thinks she sees an insect out of the corner of her eye. Needless to say, convincing her to play (and stay) outside can be a hard fought battle.

That all kind of changed this weekend when we tried eco-armour™ “outdoor” botanical insect repellent body spray & moisturizer...

eco-armour™ “outdoor” botanical insect repellent body spray & moisturizer

eco-armour outdoor is a gentle and 100% botanical full body spray and moisturizer that repels biting and disease carrying insects (mosquitoes and black flies). What drew me to it was that it  is safe and effective for the whole family, even London and Kenzie! 

(These are actual pictures from our day in the park this weekend...)



I love that it comes in a convenient spray formula (there's even a handy 2 oz. size to keep in your purse or diaper bag), so it's super easy to apply. It smells great (a light citrusy, botanical scent), and not only does it keep the bugs away, it's moisturizing too!

“outdoor” benefits…
  • Safe and effective for adults and children
  • DEET free insect repellent
  • pH balanced
  • Biodegradable
  • Moisturizing + deodorizing
  • Temporarily helps to reduce pain + swelling (sunburn, skin irritations)
  • Refreshing scent
  • Cleansing properties

Better still, when I showed Lo the bottle and explained to her that the spray would be like her armor/force field against bugs, she was more than happy to frolic in the grass with Kenzie (who is by all accounts fearless). I'll admit that she was a little skeptical at first (I wish I had gotten a picture of her face as I sprayed her down), but after I let her spritz a bit herself she was good to go! And I'm happy to report, there was not a single bug bite or landing on any of us ('cause you know I had to douse myself with some eco-armour too)!

You can find eco-armour™ “outdoor” botanical insect repellent body spray & moisturizer at eco-armour.com, along with their pretty cool Shave With Benefits Shaving Foam

Until next time...

  1. It absorbs well, and doesn't smell to strong. And its super gentle yet moisturizing. Im natural and healthy, so I like that the brand doesn't put any chemicals in their products and they do not test on animals.
