This product is great my girlfriend and I stayed by a lake in Hungary and never got bit once. If you use it make sure you put it on before sundown when they start coming out and they won't bother you. Buy insect repellant to plug in too
How long would a bottle last for if it's unopened and stored correctly? Does anyone have any idea as I'm going abroad for a couple of years. Thanks ? 16 Sep 2014
I've had a bottle for 10 years (opened), used it in Goa, India at the end of October this year - it still worked very well. Lots of mozzies around and it was v.hot & sweaty and I was outdoors, exposed both day and night for 4 hours at a time over 5 days. I only got one mosquito bite through part of a shirt that I did not treat. All exposed areas clear of bites. Its important to note that you have to treat every surface insects could land on (i.e. on top of clothes too). It may spoil clothes, though I've never had this. I've used it while sleeping on a bank of the Nile, Egypt -didn't get bitten at all when others were covered in bites. Its not the most pleasant of stuff - a bit "oily-sticky" & smells a tiny bit when being applied, but I can put up with that for the effectiveness (its probably the active ingredient DEET that causes that).
Hi, to be honest, I haven't been to Mexico, only to the Caribbean with it and there may be some other insects around. However, I used the 55 and didn't get bitten once. Hope this helps. Enjoy your holiday!
Personally, I'd opt for the 100%. And keep it topped up. I've used a mosquito wipe to apply it to ensure you get it over your skin
Can you use is on your face, I only tend to get bitten on my face for some reason, just returned from Mexico and my face was covered in bites . 18 Mar 2015
Personally, I would never spray the product directly on your face as you do not want it to get in your eyes or in your mouth or nose! However, I spray some on to my fingers and rub a little bit of the product onto my forehead, cheeks, chin and neck. Hope that helps!
It is over a 100ml so I had to put in my checked on luggage. It is def not aerosol.
