I get eaten alive by mosquitos, and I walk our dogs in a state park loaded with Deer ticks. I will not use DEET, and I will not use Frontline, Advantage, or any other class 3 carcinogen that metabolizes through the liver on my animals. I took a bottle of Repel into our holistic vet, and she said fine, just not for cats since they groom themselves. While the dogs are not crazy about the smell, for a product without harmful chemicals that works, who cares about the smell? If what I have written above doesn't convince you, it's the ONLY non-toxic insect repellent tested & recommended number ONE by Consumer Reports.

PREVIOUSLY, REPEL CONTAINED 40% LEMON EUCALYPTUS ACTIVE INGREDIENT, CURRENTLY THE BOTTLES CONTAIN ONLY 30%. THE EARLIER PRODUCTION BOTTLES HAD A VERY EFFECTIVE SPRAYER WITH A FLIP UP ARM TO STOP ANY LEAKAGE. CURRENTLY, REPEL HAS REPLACED THE EXCELLENT SPRAYER WITH A CHEAP VERSION THAT REQUIRES PRIMING BEFORE SPRAY IS EXITED AND A CHEAP CLEAR PLASTIC CAP WHICH IS EASILY KNOCKED OFF OR LOST. THIS PRODUCT IS CURRENTLY LESS EFFECTIVE AND CHEAPENED; THEREFORE, I AM RETURNING 6 OF THE UNUSED BOTTLES.

    Comments about Repel Plant Based Lemon Eucalyptus Insect Repellent, 4 fl oz:

    This is one of the best natural repellants that I have found. I am chemically sensitive and cannot use many poisonous or natural repellants. This one is very tolerable and it is very effective. I used it in Africa and in the States while doing yard work and boating and found it to be long-lasting, very effective, and have a subtle, non-reactive smell.

    Comments about Repel Plant Based Lemon Eucalyptus Insect Repellent, 4 fl oz:

    I garden every morning in the summer and this stuff works for hours. It's also perfect for beach trips in Mexico/Central America.

    Repel Lemon Eucalyptus is the perfect combination: natural ingredients that don't harm the environment in a product that I find MORE effective against disease carrying mosquitoes any any other repellant I've used. Some people find the odor offensive, but it doesn't bother me.

    It's hard to find in stores here in Indiana so I have to stock up online.

    Thank you Drugstore.com!!!

      Comments about Repel Plant Based Lemon Eucalyptus Insect Repellent, 4 fl oz:

      Used spray in NH woods on entire family. It works! Must reapply after about 2 hours, but it is a great choice for those who prefer a more natural approach for insect bite protection. Spray away from others and DO NOT spray near the face as it will make you cough and burn eyes/nose. I used it on my entire family, including my 9 month old, safely.

      Comments about Repel Plant Based Lemon Eucalyptus Insect Repellent, 4 fl oz:

      So far, nothing keeps away mosquitoes, gnats and ticks for as long as DEET. BUT, if DEET comes in contact with synthetic fabric, it will eat a hole right through it! I've tried lots of DEET alternatives and Repel works as well for two to three hours. Just spray-on a light "recharge", and you're good for another two to three hours.

      Service and delivery comments:

      This was the best price I could find, and it arrived the same week that I ordered it.

        We live in a "jungle type" area therefore my 5 year daughter has to use it all the time. It is by far the most effective and no pesticides!

            The same packed product I bought this year at the SAME PRICE of last year (2010) contains 10% LESS Eucalyptus/lemon oil. This fact was not easily display on the product. It will be interesting to find out if it is as effective or I will have to use more of it.
            Diference 30% active ingredient vs. 40% in previous.

            I use it when hiking, backpacking also when i go to the West Africa which I seems to be mosquito heaven. I find it very effective and safe, I always use it in the garden in the late afternoon and evenings.
            I keep a bottle in the car and one by the back door and front door!

              This product works great against mosquitoes!! Some feel the smell is a bit strong, but it is not a bad smell, and the benefits of using a safe product on my children that works far outweigh the fact that initially, when applied it is a little strong!! Highly recommend this product. Was so glad to find it as my bottles from a couple of years ago were empty!!

                  Yucky smell. Oily feel on skin. Bugs still biting like crazy. So now I am bug bitten, smelly and greasy. The spray container didn't work. Waste of time and money.
