5.0 out of 5 stars 100% Effective 8 Feb 2011
By Sedgy28
Was going to the Dominican Republic and EVERYONE mentioned being bitten. Wouldn't say I particularly suffer with bites and stings abroad but always get a few. Decided I'd look for a repellent containing more Deet than usually found at Boots. Had a quick look on Amazon and came across this product. Had initially checked out Repel 100, but this is real heavy duty stuff more suitable to backpacking in a jungle and there were a few warnings about melting nail varnish and taking the colour off shoes. Decided to try Repel 55, which turned out to be perfect. Says that one 120ml bottle will last 4 weeks. Used it generously every night for 2 weeks and had plenty left. Expected to be suffocated by strong chemical smell (which I would have put up with if successful) but was surprised to find there was barely an odour. Huge success with this product. Didn't get bitten once, despite spotting mosquitos in the room and spending most evenings sitting out at dusk and evenings dining by the beach. My fellow travellers did get bitten, so began to borrow my Repel 55 and also became bite free. Would highly recommend this product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mosquito-proof! 31 Oct 2011
By LittleMoon TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Verified Purchase
It's fair to say that I am a mosquito magnet, so I spent a lot of time researching DEET-based (and other natural) products before settling on this one. Scientists still recommend DEET as the only genuinely effective mosquito repellent, so if you're travelling to a country where malaria and dengue fever are a problem, you should definitely be looking for something with DEET in it.

Saying that "I love Deet" might be a bit of an exaggeration; however, one thing's for sure, I love being mosquito-proof. I've just used this in Cambodia for 2 weeks, and can say that I've been unbitten by mosquitoes whenever I've worn it. I found it particularly useful for my feet, which were exposed in sandals whilst the rest of me was covered by long clothing: the result was not a single mossie-bite on my feet! (Ants however, seemed completely happy to bite me with or without DEET.)

I was pleasantly surprised that this wasn't really greasy to apply, and dried without any noticeable effects on my skin; there was no strong chemical smell either ... so for these reasons, this DEET spray is great. It certainly worked for the "hours" I was out, usually about 3 or 4 after it was applied.

The bottle itself is made of a robust plastic, so I had no leakage problems despite it being bashed around in my rucksack. The spray nozzle didn't drip or leak after use either.

All in all, a well-designed and very effective product for the traveller heading off for mosquito-infested areas.

Took this little gem to Indonesia, stayed a month, did not receive one bite! This is as indispensible as your passport. It does exactly what it says etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars It works 17 Feb 2010
By xxxxxx
The mozzys love me, they really do. I used this traveling in Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam and found it very effective. If the mozzys love you like they love me, if you miss a bit or don't put it on all over every night, they will still bite.

I did get some bites which I think were predominately sand flies, but all in all very happy with the product.

It's a bit greasy - but all strong insect repellents are. I didn't find it any more smelly and choking than the 50% deet versions I have used before (Boots) etc.

Recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!!! 24 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase
I bought this as I was going to the Dominican Republic - when you put it on it's a bit warm but you only need to use a little bit.

Not a single bite!!! We were right by the beach in hurricane season (and a hurricane hit!), you could see them hovering under the trees waiting to bite and they do love me...but not one, not even on my feet!

Also, do not spray it directly on your face, spray it on your hands then put it on your face lightly, doesn't hurt at all that way!

It's a little greasey but it does soak in, it doesn't leave a residue and it DOES NOT SMELL!!!

I would recommend this to anyone, brilliant product :)

3.0 out of 5 stars Still bitten, but a lot less than without. 17 Mar 2011
By Hali
Without the spray I can receive up to 14 bites on a bad night, the most I have received with the spray is 3 - quite good going for someone who gets bitten a lot. I found coupling the spray with the anti-mosquito wristbands very effective.

Tried all sorts of midgey sprays here and always go back to using DEET. The best one is DEET 100 but its a bit strong and makes my skin a bit red so i use the 55 now. Dont spray this near your mouth or eyes as it stings like hell and tastes disgusting! Skin so soft is really popular here but although it does stop them biting you it doesnt stop them landing on you which is just as annoying in my opinion, whereas DEET keeps the little pests at distance which suits me just fine! Cant rate DEET spray highly enough and if i didnt have sensitive skin i would use the deet 100 as its 100% effective although the 55 is really good too just a little milder. You wont find a better insect spray :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Kept me bite free....nearly! 3 Aug 2010
Verified Purchase
Used it in Sri Lanka for 2 weeks recently along with the 100 version as well - fantastic for me as only one bite in 2 weeks - while rest of my Doubting Thomas family got bitten somewhat badly. If only they had listened! Needs care when applying as strong stuff certainly can take colour out of shoes and jewellery and can stain clothes so beware....but it works
