I love this stuff I am extremely allergic to bug bites not like the normal allergic that everyone gets but one that breaks me out bad, I sweat alot so normal bug spray comes off within twenty minutes this stays on for a couple hours, I do have to apply a few more times throughout the day but my skin stays bug biteless.

Our backyard just seems to attract mosquitoes and before we only bought off brand repellent. This year I decide to spend the extra dollars for this product and it was a world of difference. Way less bug bites. Virtually none in the five hours we were outside with only one application of the spray!

If you live in the country where mosquitos are like vampires out at night sleep at day tyen you need this. Doesnt smell like those strong mosquito repellents that make you cough. This actually smells good.

My go to bug spray, it's my scent of the summer and easily found in any store. Not as great as the deep woods bug spray, but still good for summer activities like a cookout etc etc. I hate the scent but it does the job.

I really like this. I hate spraying it all over my body but it works really well. Just hold it down and go up or down your arms and legs. I get bit very easily and they get really bad but I use this (when I remember lol) and it does the trick. The smell isn't that well but it better than others and it doesn't bother me much after I put it on. It is sweat resistant. It won't stain, it's not greasy, it's easy to apply and it stays on for hours. Just don't apply over cuts or irritated skin or if you just shaved lol it stings a little but It does keep the bugs OFF! :)

This is my favorite insect repellant. It works very well. Since the small insect bites hurt me and I have always tried to take care of my skin with the best products. It is incrible that with this spray repellent does not attract insects and smells delicious I definitely recommend it OFF! Active Sweat Resistant

Great time to have always. This one tends to last longer than regular ones. It's already enough to spray once no need to reapply every 10 minutes. Smells great just wish it had more tick repellent in it.

I'm going to a seven days Caribbean cruise in a week, and I have outdoor excursions planned for every single day. There is no other brand that makes mosquitos stay OFF of me. Before using OFF, I used to suffer from massive mosquito bites!!! I have used it while on Disney animal kingdom, at hikes, kayaking, etc and returned with no mosquito bites. I definitely recommend this to everyone.

Works great! I get bit so bad every year and so do my kids but not with this stuff. It's amazing and the smell is great also. It is a strong smell but not a bad smell at all.
