Works Pretty Good
Posted by Reviewer1565643 on Aug 04, 2010
Works fairly well and keeps most bugs away. Doesn't work quite as well as deet, but what little it lacks is well worth the sacrifice for an all natural product. Only complaint is that the spray version still comes out as more of a lotion than a spray and so it is difficult to spray over your clothes
Strong smelling but works well

The liquid is white in color and smells strongly of lemongrass. So far it worked well to keep away the insects. Smell is strong upon application but fades after a while. I spray on hand then apply to skin. I like that it does not leave an oily film or feel sticky. Same ingredients and same percentage of ingredients as the kids version.
Having fun and less bugging

It works for me. Bugs don't seem to bother me after I put the All Terrain, herbal Armor, insect repellent on in the evening before going outside to exercise. I still got bitten sometimes,if I missed a spot. You have to apply the repellent well. We are happy to find this product that we don't need to worry about putting harmful chemicals on our body.
works well for us!

we live in southeast asia and this works well as a bug repellant. highly recommended
Wish it did not need to be rubbed in

This is very effective for a natural repellent, and the smell is pleasant. BUT, it sprays out like a lotion, so you need to rub it in. Then it is all over your hands. Which is fine, when you are home, but not so great when you are camping our somewhere without the ability to really wash your hands. It also means you can't spray easily on clothing or hair. We still buy it and use it, but are looking for a similar alternative for when we are out camping or travelling.
Keeps yellowjackets away

Slather it on to keep yellowjackets from biting (they seem to think I would make a fine meal); works for about an hour. Probably would not stop yellowjackets from stinging if they are annoyed.

This works great and smells nice.
we live in the tropics and it works

We have to put bug spray on our toddler every day before preschool because he was getting mosquito bites at school. Since we started using this in the mornings, he has stopped getting bites. It is super smelly like a citronella candle, but a small trade off for not putting DEET on him daily.
Great, Natural Insect Repellent

I've used the squeeze bottle version of this product for years to repel mosquitoes when I'm out working in the yard. It works for at least 2.5 to 3 hours and really keeps the mosquitoes away. The spray version works just as well, but I prefer the squeeze dispenser over the spray dispenser. As other reviews have stated, you can't just spray this product on and then go about your business. You need to rub the product into your skin. It's not a big deal to me, but I don't understand the benefit of a spray dispenser over the squeeze bottle. Now I wish the manufacturer would modify the formula to repel those pesky small black gnats that like to fly into your face. They can be worse than mosquitoes.

I used it for my kids and it kept those mosquitos away. Very pleased.
