    Works great and smells amazing!! I use just small amounts on exposed skin and it keeps those pesky bugs away.

    Took this on a recent camping trip and had very minimal mosquito bites. Then I got lucky a few weeks later when I found it in my purse while at an outdoor dinner with family. My sister and husband used it because they could tell they were getting bitten, but I didn’t feel anything so I didn’t put it on. Guess who woke up with more bites? Me.

    So far i have loved this repellant for how effective it is against mosquitoes. I have peace using it on my family because it has no toxic ingredients. The only thing i do wish there was an option for is maybe an unscented repellant. Although the way this one smells isnt terrible, it can be quite strong. Otherwise i would still get this again when i run out.

    I’ve tried several natural bug repellents, but haven’t found any that are as effective as Pest Aside. This works so well that I’ve stopped trying other ones and will make sure to always have some on hand for the summer months.

    My husband and daughter get eaten ALIVE by mosquitos, even with other repellents. But with this stuff, they don’t even get one bite! Amazing!

    I love this product so much that I bought it for my Mom and mother in law. We all get eaten up like crazy during monsoon season and this is the only product I have found to truly work! Not only does it work but it is completely safe and natural. I put it on my toddler every day before school and I feel good knowing it has nothing in it that will harm or irritate his skin. I can literally stand in a swarm of mosquitos and watch them refuse to land on me. LOVE THIS STUFF!

    Love having something safe and effective on my little kiddos!

    Very effective! We went blueberry picking in the rain yesterday and we’re swarmed by mosquitoes. We all came out unscathed. My dad, my toddler, myself, and my 1 year old were all fine. They still swarmed around us but they didn’t bite at all. My husband also said it was very effective when he was weeding the garden the other night. I like the portability of the tube, but I think a little pot of it would also be handy.

  9. Michelle Padron (verified owner)

    It did a fair job at keeping mosquitos at bay. My main issue with it is how impractical it is to use above room temperature. Maybe the fact that I’m in South Texas has something to do with it, but even in my home it melts into a liquid mess. The twisty “stick” design has oil melting out the bottom. It would have been more usable in a small jar or tub like Vaseline. The aroma is strong with this one as well. Some people might have a hard time dealing with the pachouli oil fragrance. I don’t mind it, but my kids hated it. Mix that with the fact that the melty oil got on everything and it was a failed endeavor from the beginning. I wanted to like it! I’m glad other people so, but these were my beefs with it.

  10. Jaclyn DeBoer

    We didn’t have even 1 mosquitoe bite after applying! This stuff is AMAZING!!! Plus no breathing in fumes is a bonus!
