Top Tips for Avoiding Sandfly Bites

Your best defense is a good offense

#howNOTtodress is one of our best resources.

Timing is everything. Sandflies love dusk just as much as you do. But instead of unwinding from a long day of work, and hopefully some play, they are gearing up for a meal. So apply Goodbye Sandfly, or reapply if it has been more than a few hours.

Don't stop, keep on moving on. Sandflies prefer nonmoving targets. If you are out talking to people at a BBQ, sitting with a drink by the beach, or just taking a break on a hike be sure to cover up with clothes and a spritz of Sandfly. I make sure that I am always prepared with both at my outside table when I meet up with friends for a coffee and catch up.

Wishing you good health in our beautiful, sometimes buggy world.

With respect,

Founder and Product Maker ~ Goodbye NZ

Goodbye makes certified natural, water-free products that take care of skin outdoors. Established by Becky in 1999, the key message has been consistent from the beginning.  Outdoors is good. We belong outdoors. It's better outdoors. Being outdoors is self-care in it's most natural state.

Alongside this message of wellness outdoors is the ethos that we take care of what we love. When you are connected to your environment, you naturally take better care of it.

Becky is the product maker for Goodbye products, sometimes development takes years. As a former outdoor guide, she has remained focused on bringing performance and portability to genuine natural products.

Her products are a good reason to keep showing up to the conversation about a life lived better outdoors.
