Nasty but Effective,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jungle Formula Maximum Aerosol - 125 ml (Personal Care)
I'm sure that this stuff is extremely effective for keeping mossies and other insects away and there are many reviews on here that will attest to that. That of course is exactly why I bought it. But I'm afraid that I could only bear to use it once. I sprayed my arms, legs and neck with this chemical and was then conscious of its presence all evening. I was careful not to rub an itchy eye or damp mouth with the back of my hand for fear of getting the stuff into my eye or ingesting the stuff. I just felt like a walking chemical hazard to myself. I'm giving the item 4 stars because I'm sure it it as effective as everyone else says. I'm deducting one star because I don't like spraying myself all over with nasty chemicals.
I'm like a walking buffet for mosquitoes so I need to find something that suits me. For the rest of my trip I used "Bug Patches" which made me smell of marmite but possibly worked as I returned home bite free. However if I was to visit an area which had a real danger of contracting malaria or dengue fever then I'm sure I'd go back to Jungle Formula and stop being a baby about it!
