Although intended as a skin softener, this dry oil spray is probably the most-effective insect repellant I've ever used.
Too many repellants are based on stronger chemicals such as DEET which I'd rather not put on my skin - but this couldn't be more different. It makes skin feel soft without being greasy and it keeps biting insects, horseflies, wasps and even the notorious Scottish midges at bay. While canoeing on open water and passing through masses of biting insects, I haven't been subjected to a nibble.
A recommended purchase for outdoor life, sporting activities and travel. (Also available in a lighter 'soft and sensual' floral fragrance.)
