MOST EFFECTIVE REPELLENT I HAVE EVER USED
Posted by Jessica from WINTHROP, Massachusetts
Bought this after being bitten twice within 15 seconds of standing in my backyard. Once I applied it to all exposed skin on my arms and legs, the back of my neck, and the brim of my hat, I was able to stand still in the same area for 5-7 minutes with no bites. I used it before walking a half mile trail in a nearby tidal marshy area, including stopping for bird observation. No bites. I haven't gone birdwatching without applying it since.
Note, however, that you have to make sure to put it on all your exposed skin and spray your thinner clothes. I've had bites on areas I forgot to spray, and once had a mosquito pass up all of my skin and bite me through a sock. Also, when the extremely long and detailed warning label- read all of it, it folds out- says to keep it out of your eyes, they're NOT KIDDING. Spray it on your hands and then rub your face if you need to use it on your face instead of a hat.
One last note: wash up vigorously with soap and water after you're done with it for the day. The smell clings for hours or more, especially to fingers.
Bad warning ⚠️
Posted by Rebecca from NEWHALL, California
I never really tried out the product other than to see if I’d react to it. Which I did not. But as I read the back of it, the warning says to not touch food, eyes, or mouth when using. That part was okay, but then it says to immediately shower when done with activity. Not that I would want to sleep smelling like bug spray, but I’m not comfortable with these warnings and directions for a natural bug repellent.

Smells great and works! This brand doesn’t give me a headache from the overpowering smell like some other brands do.

We had company over and we were getting attacked by biting flies. I thought "why not try this". It worked! People think I'm crazy with my non-toxic ways but they love a product that's proven to work and this worked.

This is great! Pleasant enough smell and works very well. If out for a while may have to reapply but it works v well

I'm one of those people that gets bit like crazy, and then I end up with giant red welts as my bites swell up. I've tried plenty of bug sprays over the years, and this is one of the best. Anything that has lemon eucalyptus as the main ingredient has been very effective in preventing too many bites.

Mosquitoes LOVE ME and this insect repellent works incredibly well AND the scent is not overpowering for me and other nearby humans. Highly recommend.
Works great! I’ve seen mosquitoes hover and then leave !

I began using this product since July 3,2020 . I have been in the yard every evening, watering grass , watching fireworks. As of today, July 7th , not 1 mosquito bite ! The smell is powerful, but not unpleasant.
