This is a wonderful product - I can take my dogs into the woods all summer, and the insects take one whiff and leave. Even those pesky flies that like to land on dogs and people. I put a little around my dogs heads before we go out, and they are also fly-free! It's totally natural - no chemicals - smells great AND is most effective. Same thing in the garden - I don't worry much about ticks - put it on my shoes and ankles when I am digging in the garden, or raking leaves in the fall. Don't just buy it for yourself - get some for your children and grandchildren - it's wonderful stuff!

I loved the yellow label Burt's Bees Insect Repellent the first time I used it. I actually rub it on my dog's bed to prevent fleas. I also use it on my kids and myself when I got out to do my gardening. I love the smell. However, when I went online to order several more bottles what I received was the green label Herbal Insect Repellant. The difference in ingredients is very small, but the scent of the product changes quite a bit. The yellow label includes Wintergreen oil that really makes the scent refreshing, almost lovely. I recently had a friend come over with her daughter and both commented on how good my house smelled. I had just rubbed the yellow label repellent on the dog's bed. My mother wants to buy some to use as an occasional air freshener in her home. Had I received more of the yellow label repellent (as is pictured on the website) I would have given this product a 5 STAR Rating.

Horrible Oily Mess. Don't Buy!!!

By DB

Pros

  • Deet Free

Cons

  • Messy Application
  • Oily
  • Strong Smell

Best Uses

  • Tanning Oil

Comments about Burt's Bees All Natural Outdoor Herbal Insect Repellent, 4 fl oz:

This is a disaster. I never take the initiative to review products, but this one is so bad I felt compelled. Burt's Bees needs to discontinue this. The smell is strong. It is very oily, and the absolute worst part is that it doesn't spray in a mist. You point the pump spray at your body, pump it, and it comes out in an concentrated stream that you then have to smear over your body. The oilyness does not decrease when it is rubbed in. Instead, I recommend Repel, which is also deet free. It too has a strong smell, but it is not nearly as oily and it sprays in a mist that you don't have to touch.

      Comments about Burt's Bees All Natural Outdoor Herbal Insect Repellent, 4 fl oz:

      Product seems to work OK but you have to continually apply it for it to be effective. As another person indicated, I bought 2 bottles. They arrived and one was defective and leaked all over the box it was packaged in. Given its price it is not worth sending it back. This seems to be a common problem so probably would recommend to others not to purchase the product.

                        I live in an area where mosquitoes and ticks are plentiful. Both ticks and mosquitoes love me. I garden in a wooded area where the ticks are plentiful. This product applies easily and smells great. For some reason the ticks do not attach themselves to me when I wear this product. This will be the second year I will use it.

                          The only insect repellent that works for me. One application lasts for hours. It has a slight odor that doesn't bother me, but is detected by others and is not necessarily bad.
