Smidge stops midges biting you in two ways. It stops midges finding you. The active ingredient in Smidge has been molecularly designed to effectively block the antennal receptors of biting insects. Basically, it throws them off your scent. It stops you tasting so good. As you Smidge up, you’ll notice a pleasant fragrance and appealing moisturising qualities, however to landing midges or mosquitoes you’ll taste like planet putrid.
