badgerstickIt’s my birthday. So I decided to review a product by a company that I really love and admire.  Badger!  I got a mysterious package from them yesterday with some awesome samples to try out – and a handful of my most favorite thing on earth, lip balms.  So since they made my birthday brighter I thought I’d share with you my experience using their Badger Bug Balm product in the last few months.

I came across Badger’s Anti-Bug Balm in Publix in south Florida of all places and grabbed one to give it a shot.  If I’m being honest I kept thinking “How can you make bug balm work, how could it possibly cover enough area to keep me from getting bit?”  But I had such good luck with their sunscreen (a SafeMama top pick!) that I had to put my faith in it.  Well I was shown the way when I gave it a go.

Most of the Balms come in tins, but this particular balm is in a fat push up stick with a screw cap which is super handy.  The balm glides on smooth and a couple swipes gives you enough balm to rub in to cover larger areas like legs and arms.  This is especially easier to do with little kids because they are so wiggly.  The biggest problem I have with bug sprays is that my son is always moving and I’ve accidentally got him in the eyes (I know… bad mommy!) but due to the fine mists that some of them come in its hard to get them protected.  With Badgers Bug Balm you can swipe it on and rub it in so you know where they’re covered.  Sprays kind of go all over the place and you don’t know whats what.

Badger only uses natural ingredients and most are now USDA Certified Organic.  And they are all eco-conscious, fair trade, family centered and kind people.  This bug balm held up against aggressive mosquitoes in muggy Florida and Georgia so I am pretty sure its strong engouh for most buggy situations!  SafeMama gives Badger the stamp of approval!  Love Badger!!!

Get It: Order it online at – Bug balms also come in their cute tins too.
