Good insect repellent and also makes your skin soft at the same time! I love it and it also has a moisturizing effect that helps the repellent not dry out my skin form repeated use. It's a bit pricy but it does work and you really don't need a lot! Effectiveness Very effective for using it in a wooded area where I live, as we have many mosquitoes here and also ticks. It only takes a few minutes to spray it on and it starts to work right away.It works well for the duration described on the bottle and you don't need to make many applications all day long, but you night want to re apply if you do go swimming. Ease of Application Comes in a easy to spray bottle and it comes out as a mist. You can pump it as hard or as soft as you need to for the amount you need. You can also pump a tiny bit on your hand and wipe it on your face but do not get it in your eyes or your mouth as it can cause problems. Scent The scent is pleasant and doesn't attract other insects along with those you are trying to repel. It doesn't make you smell like a can of insect repellent from 20 feet away!
