    Best non-deet mosquito repellent

    Let's face it, DEET is the most effective ingredients in mosquito repellents, so we shouldn't expect natural mosquito repellents to work as well as those with DEET. Having said that, I still prefer something less toxic than DEET so I've been trying all the "natural" insert repellents for the past few years. Buzz away beats them all hands down. I use it on myself and the kids when we go to the playground or park. I re-apply every hour or so, if we're all sweating profusely or if there are exceptionally many mosquitoe...Read complete review

I use it on myself and the kids when we go to the playground or park. I re-apply every hour or so, if we're all sweating profusely or if there are exceptionally many mosquitoes in that area. I think if you want a mosquito repellent for the purpose of hiking for example (especially in an area where you know is likely to have mosquitoes) or if you want to be guaranteed not to have a single mosquito bite, go for something with DEET. Oh, and I don't mind the smell of this product at all. I think it's more effective than other natural mosquito repellents because it's more concentrated, hence the stronger smell. One more thing - I think the Extreme is more effective than the regular Buzz Away.

    Good, but not great

    I use Buzz Away Extreme while playing Ultimate Frisbee. The smell is pleasant, but can be overpowering. The spray nozzle could use some improvement - it doesn't spray upside down, and the spray isn't very diffuse. You have to rub the product in if you don't want white circles all over your skin. In terms of its performance - it does seem to keep mosquitoes away, but only from the areas that are definitely covered. If there are any openings between spray spots, there's a good chance a mosquito will find one of those and get...Read complete review

The fact that it's DEET-free is awesome, but I will probably not purchase this product again until it is improved.

      Comments about Buzz Away Extreme, Natural Insect Repellent, 4 fl oz:

      I'm allergic to Deet and other chemicals in most bug repellents. I also can't stand the smell of Citronella. I took this bug repellent to the mountains of Honduras on a mission trip earlier this month and it really worked well for me. While others on the trip who used products like Off were attacked by mosquitoes, ticks, chiggers and other biting insects, I came home without one bite or nibble. I actually saw mosquitoes hovering a few inches away from my arm (looking for a place to land) and was amazed how well the product kept them off of me! The spray is not greasy and it smells good - not too strong. I was very comfortable putting this spray on my face and neck. One application in the morning lasted all day, even when sunscreen was re-applied on top of it. I'm very pleased that it's all natural and not chemical based. I had bought the Badger Balm bug repellent at the same time but had to throw it out because of the overwhelming Citronella scent.
