  1. Sheri (verified owner)

    This definitely worked for me, however the protection doesn’t last as long as the chemical products. But I would rather re-apply as needed than cover myself in chemicals.

  2. Sara Leathers (verified owner)

    I bought this for my one year old and me. I wanted to love it, but the mosquitos still come after us. I have tried making sure every bit of us is covered with it, but they still bite.

  3. Melanie (verified owner)

    Love this stuff! I have yet to get a Mosquito bite this year I recommend you it to all my friends and they Recommend it to theirs

  4. Tara (verified owner)

    I have only used this a few times and it was on my nephew who gets bitten up quickly. He was able to be outside and enjoy it without him getting bites on him. I plan on taking it on a trip here soon and looking forward to it working for us. It has a very strong smell so a little can go along way and see why it works.

  5. Brenda (verified owner)

    This product works so well for me and my family! We put it on our ankles and wrists and have no issues with bug bites! I am so thankful for a natural bug repellent! And the smell is not as bad as I thought it would be. We don’t mind smelling like citronella If it keeps the bugs away!

  6. Anita (verified owner)

    Looks like I am an outlier, but this did not work for me, my daughter, or my mom. I got 4 mosquito bites on my legs on one occasion. Thinking that perhaps I hadn’t applied with full coverage, I gave the product two more chances. Each time I got multiple bites in areas I knew had applied the product. I did get fewer bites than if I hadn’t applied anything at all (mosquitoes love me), but each time I still had 3 or more bites. Same for my toddler and for my mom. (Perhaps our genetics make us too irresistible to bugs.) Based on the other reviews, I bought 2 large containers and 1 travel size. I should have gotten the trial sized first to make sure it worked out for me.

    This stuff actually works!!! I was being eaten alive one night and ran in to put this all over.
    Next thing I know, the bugs were flying up to me then hovering and flying away! I watched so many decide not to land on me. And bonus…. It smells so good!!!

  8. Kirsten Elliott

    The bugs really dislike this stuff! I feel much better about applying this all natural product on my children!

  9. Chellie Anne (verified owner)

    I have most products by Earthley but this is one of my favorites. I bought the biggest size (two actually) for camping and hiking this summer for a family of 4 and it’s been great. We rarely get a mosquito bite and we hike all over all the time. It’s easy to apply and rub into the skin too and smells great!

  10. Amy!

    this works! and I really like the smell. Plus, it’s so easy to apply, as a stick.
