I train heavily in South Florida. It is coming on summer, the rains are drenching the area. Mosquitoes are rampant and out for blood. I was, earlier today(mid June rainy season), in a shaded heavily planted car port with a friend training in 88 degree weather and applied this product just to my ankle area(wore sweat pants) and where my short sleeve shirt met my bare arm. This is all i needed, as there were so many mosquitoes flying around us, knowing we were food, but they WOULD NOT touch us. I was ready to spray onto hands and use on face, but i never did. Didn' t need to.
We took breaks just to look down at our torsos and legs, 30 to 40 mosquitoes ready to eat, but they would not. It was like they dare not touch us. Lemony smell, i think better than Deet, they would not come near the skin. We were both blown away. It really is that good. A little goes a long way. One spray on arm and rubbed it around, that is all it took. I should have lost a cup of blood today to those vampires, and it is like we all co-existed peacefully. They must've been very frustrated to smell a meal but not dare come to feast. AAA+ for this product. This will take over the market, as Deet is something i am uncomfortable with, a necessary evil, until Lemon Eucalyptus. You will smell like lemon, and that is all you smell. They will NOT bite you with this product on you. We sweat like filthy pigs in this heat training outside, and the sweat seemed to have no affect on the product.
I cannot speak enough good of the quality and it is from a tree, like nature being used to repel nature. That works for me.

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:

    I purchased this because its main ingredient is plant-based rather than chemical based. Also, according to Consumer Reports, it keeps mosquitoes away for about 7 or 8 hours and ticks away for 7 hours. However, there are so many warnings on the inside label including "wash hands thoroughly with soap and water after handling and before eating, drinking, chewing gum, or using tobacco" and "after returning from outdoors, wash product from all exposed skin". We decided to return it as I don't feel safe putting this on my kids.

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

      I am a professional gardener and work in an area between two lakes. The mosquitoes were horrible and deet wasn't working, and I'm not sure deet is safe. This product works and is nontoxic so I can use it on my face and spray it in my hair, which is great, because I would never use deet on my face and hair so the bugs would bite me there. What a find!

        This stuff will repel everything in sight…….it is so strong you can pass out from the smell. Once on,
        it is very hard to get off and the stink lingers on and on…I had to take 2 showers to try to get it off…..I do not recommend this product.

                I really love this product. We live on the Gulf Coast of Florida and need insect repellant to be outside for any length of time. I have always hated using most other products I've tried for various reasons--toxicity, smell, mess, feeling on my skin. With this I have none of those problems. The scent is a little strong for some people but I actually like it--it smells like citrus and eucalyptus. It does not leave my skin sticky or oily, and most important, it keep the bugs away! Highly recommend! I wish they made it in bigger bottles as I go through it way too fast.

                  This is a great product. I was afraid it wouldn't be as effective because it doesn't have powerful chemicals. Boy was I wrong- it works great. Used it for 2 weeks in the jungles of Thailand. I've also used it throughout the Appalachian mountains. Bugs stay well away. The bottle lasts a long time, smells good, and doesn't spray nasty chemicals all over your skin. I'm a long-time outdoorsman and highly highly recommend this product.

                    Since I found this spray, I will never again use the poison Deet on myself or my grandkids! It is very strong, so I spray it on the clothing and hats. Works better than anything I've ever used before. I love it!

                      This product seems to work on mosquitoes really well. We live in the South so mosquitoes are a big issue and finding a natural repellent that works is not easy. There is a strong smell to contend with, but that is true for every insect repellent I have ever used. So far this product gets a thumbs up.
