I've used it only one time. Managed to kill several annoying mosquitos trying to attack me at night.They seemed to just drop dead in the aromatic fumes, very effective. The smell is interesting, not bad really
Bought in 2014 - Does work with Borneo mossies.

I forgot to review this product when I purchased it in 2014 and only remembered as I was browsing for other options. In summary, it doesn't work with the mossies in Sibu, Sarawak which is located in Borneo. I'm back to using DEET.
Smells better than some sprays, but does not repel well enough

Still getting mosquito bites and loads of seed ticks after use. Would be tolerable for use in areas where there is not a high amount of bugs, such as your yard maybe, but NOT in the woods, that is for sure. Will not reorder because it appears that natural products in general just do not defend well enough to prevent potential disease. The geranium smell is nice though. It is for minor bug issues, not an onslaught.
Hits all the natural repellent bases

The only reason I did not give this a 5 is that I have not had a chance to try it yet in a high insect environment. I will try to revisit this review after that. I actually bought it in error because I though it contained "lemon eucalyptus" which is researched as the number one natural repellent. THIS DOES NOT contain the plant extract of Eucalyptus Citriodora, it contain lemon and separately eucalyptus -- so not what I was aiming for. However, it smells great -- though mild -- so is it too mild? It is very well labeled except that repellent is misspelled as REPELLANT right on the front which is odd. It contains all the biggies in the natural repellent arsenal (except peppermint essential oil which is well researched for repellent properties that can compete with DEET when applied more frequently than DEET.) NOTE ONE: All natural repellents need to applied frequently so follow their label directions for application. NOTE TWO: This site, iherb, does sell a pure oil of Eucalyptus Citriodora . If you are going into deep woods, I would suggest you search on this botanical name.
Mild, Pleasant Odor

This product is good for brisk walks outdoors, and is not too milky or malodorous. I do not recommend it for deep woods.
