This item is definitely a must have for my family. It keeps the mosquitoes at bay while not only imparting a very light fragrance but it also moisturizes. So if we're having a balloon fight in the backyard or sweating at the grill, we really don't have to reapply as often making it more economical than most store brands. The spray-pump helps to target the area. I would still spray into my hands to apply it to the neck area of small children, not on their hands or face.
