MY REVIEW

I used this on my niece who is two years old as well as myself one day before we went on a walk. The first thing I noticed was the smell. While it is not the most pleasant smell, it is better than other spray bug repellents. It smells like lemon and a few other scents I cannot place, but it is overpowering. Luckily after about an hour the smell started to fade. It pumps out in small amounts as a white lotion and I was impressed at how awesome it felt on my skin! It was not thick at all, and actually moisturized our skin. It also did not irritate my niece’s soft sensitive skin either.

I also love the ingredients and the fact that it is top safety rated by the Environmental Working Group. Along with that it was not tested on animals, is allergy tested, reef safe, and was developed by a pediatrician. Most importantly, we returned from the walk with zero mosquito bites! That is saying a lot for me since I usually get bites sitting on my back deck with OFF! sprayed all over my exposed skin!

PROS

  • Repels mosquitos
  • Feels great on skin
  • Natural ingredients
  • Moisturizes skin
  • Smells better than a bug spray
  • Cruelty free

CONS

  • Overpowering smell

I definitely recommend this!! I love the feeling on my skin and the fact that it is natural..and of course repels pesky mosquito bites!
