We’ve definitely been more conscientious about applying mosquito repellent since the rise of the Zika virus, but with many of them containing pesticide, it’s been a love-hate thing. The Singaporebased laboratory ms.Artisan has changed the game with a 4-in-1 botanical serum.

Packed with more than a dozen natural ingredients, Mummy’s Love functions as a mosquito repellent, sunscreen, moisturiser and antihistamine. It calms irritation and promotes healing, making it great for relieving insect bites; and is gentle enough for reapplication throughout the day. 

Mummy’s Love retails for $16 (50ml) and $32 (120ml) at www.msartisan.com.
