I'm pleased to report that I was not disappointed! I am shocked, actually, at how well it worked! We first tried it one day when we had a picnic right next to a creek and all went swimming. Despite the swimming, all three of us made it out without a single new bite. Then I thought I'd really put it to the test weeding in the garden at dusk on a hot, humid day. I was seeing mosquitoes EVERYWHERE! Admittedly, I sprayed myself with quite a bit, but in the end I still came inside feeling all itchy. I swore that I had to have been covered head to toe in new bites. I showered that itchy feeling away and waited...and waited. By the next day - no new bites! Not a single one!
They also make a balm that comes well recommended as well, which I'm considering getting to keep in my purse for those impromptu moments you find yourself out and going for a hike or whatever. I'm so excited to have found this product, and I hope that it will prove just as effective for you in warding off pesky bugs!
