I moved to Florida last year, and this has been my go-to insect repellent after considerable experimentation. I use DEET overseas in Dengue areas, but DEET makes me nervous for everyday use. I've tried lots of "natural" products, and they don't work very well for me. Natrapel seems to keep the bugs at bay under most conditions. It's sticky enough that I have to take a shower to get it off before bed, but I'd rather do that than scratch mosquito bites. I'm delighted that they finally offer a size that will fit in a 3-1-1 bag!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
