    This product works very well, I only wish it had a milder smell. It is super strong!

  2. Chelsee (verified owner)

    for the most part, I’m a fan! I love the smell for sure, and the ingredients! But it is quite a bit messier than the traditional spray on. And I feel like i went through a tube pretty fast because of how much we had to use for the whole family. It worked pretty good, still noticed a few bug bites. But not near as many as we would have if we weren’t wearing any.

  3. Erin (verified owner)

    This smells great and I love that it’s nontoxic, but my son and I still get bit by mosquitoes. Still using it to see if maybe it was just a fluke? Will update my review if it starts to work better. Maybe we’re just too sweet!

  4. Meghann Wiles (verified owner)

    I love this stuff SO MUCH. It is hands down my favorite bug repellant, especially for kids. My three actually love to have it put on. We live in the south with heavy mosquitoes, and it’s been a life saver for us. We just came back in from sitting for 3.5 hours in our front lawn with it on and zero bug bites.

  5. Emily Diedrich (verified owner)

    This will forever be my family’s bug repellent. It works. Went camping and no bug bites! Plus it doesn’t have nasty chemicals or fake smells. Win!!!!

  6. Rebecca Ayers (verified owner)

    Works better than any bug repellent! You literally cannot beat the efficacy of this and it being a natural product with zero toxic ingredients. I will say, it is super thick. It doesn’t bother my kiddos at all, but I use it sparingly because I don’t like the feel of it. But I’d much rather have that problem than using ingredients that are harmful!

  7. Courtney Keck (verified owner)

    Love how well this works! We live right up against a preserve in Fl so the mosquitoes are vicious. This must be their kryptonite!

  8. Denise (verified owner)

    I feel good about applying this (even after a shower) because I know it’s not toxic and can safely stay on my skin, BUT unfortunately I have not seen it deter the mosquitoes at all. I’ve yet to find something safe that does.

  9. Jordan Long

    I love how easy this is to put on my kids, especially the baby! Works very well to keep them off our skin!

  10. BJ (verified owner)

    Pest Aside works well to keep the bugs away. The stick forms helps to keep the bugs off of the skin. I wish it also came in a liquid format (without oil) that could be sprayed on clothing. We keep a stick of this handy in the summer. Great product!
