Excellent product that works.
I heard about this item thru a Consumer Reports study about the best mosquito repellents, in particular the one that carries the Zika virus as I'm pregnant. This one is supposed to repel against the aedes mosquitos for 7 hours, according to the study. I think it's probably closer to 5/6 hours, as I don't smell it after that amount of time. I didn't get bitten once in Florida nor in the Bahamas for my vacation, nonetheless. Great product, would recommend for expecting moms. No harsh chemical smells as its plant based. Smells like the spa!
Smell like kerosene and not effective
I am using since 2-3 years now but this time I bought from Walmart.com 1 dozen bottles but it smell like kerosene and not effective. It burnt eyes and irritating. Spoke with manufacturer and he said not kerosene but alcohol. I complaint this product has lost its Eucalyptus and lemon smell. I send them an emails and pictures. Also read lot # and bar code over the phone and send via email. I think they started Mfg. Inferior products or not sealed hence easily tempered by Walmart or during shipping.
Works as advertised
My wife has Type O blood and she gets bit a lot, just like literature documents it. When she got bit around 8 pm outside and then she applied the new Repel Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus and was outside for another hour, she never got another bite. The key is however to make sure every inch of your exposed skin and your clothing is smeared with it too. It can however make stains if you apply in excess to clothing but nothing that won't come off with washing if you wash right away. My 7 year old daughter uses it too. I make sure to dab it on her skin than spray lavishly and waste a bunch. On the clothes, I get close enough and gently spray them. Don't place it on kids' hands (front or back) since they have a tendency to rub it. I did it the first time accidentally and my daughter complained her eyes were burning because she rubbed them. We immediately used a whole bunch of saline drops on her eyes (we prefer not to use eye drops with chemicals) and she was fine the next day.
Even works against deer flies!
I live in an area which is teeming with mosquitoes and deer flies. I was desperate to find something that would keep the deer flies away from me (especially my head!) when outside during warm weather. I have a wide brimmed hat that I wear to try to keep them away from my head, but they would swarm around my head and face to the point that I had to go inside. I decided to spray some of this product on my hat and try to go outside again. To my relief...it worked! The flies kept their distance and I could stay outside as long as I wanted without being bothered. I was absolutely amazed because it seems there is little that will deter the pesky deer flies. It, of course, works very well against mosquitoes too. Would never be without it! Highly recommend.
Even works against deer flies!
I love this insect repellent! I would never buy a different type of mosquito spray again. DEET-free is very important to me, but even more important is that it has no unpleasant smell (after the first few minutes) or unpleasant feel on my skin. I can wear it all day and not feel yucky. It's not overly expensive, and it works! My only issue is with the advertising that claims "repels mosquitoes for up to 6 hours" - in my experience, if you want reliable protection you need to reapply every hour or two. I've searched the web, but I can't find any cheaper source than buying individual 4oz spray bottles at my local Walmart.
