I liked the colour of the bottle; it was compact and easy to use. Packaging looked appealing. Instructions easy to follow and was easy to use. The spray was easy to use and the children could do it themselves. This would absorb fairly quickly. I found the fragrance a bit overpowering, very liquorice like.  Children loved it.  So much so I had to keep it away from them or they would over-do it.  But knowing it was herbal and harmless I wasn’t overly concerned. Children reported a huge drop in night time bites.  Personally I felt it offered more than nothing in regards to protection, as I still had some bites. The children used it liberally before bed and had little or no bites, whereas before they were getting bitten badly at night. We all used this product but mainly used on the children. This did not cause anyirritation. Worked well, smelt nice for the children and encouraged them to use. For the amount in the bottle, I think the price is quite high. It did work though, and my kids wanted to use it, unlike another product which smelt vile, they refused it. Personally I would like the fragrance to be a little more subtle. I would purchase this item if on offer. I would recommend.Good product does what it says and good for children. Alison Connolly – Dayna, Casey& Ciara – 9, 6 & 2 Years

My initial impression was fairly positive – I was much happier at the thought of using something natural – though I was a little disappointed that the bottle was not plastic as I was worried about it breaking! I like the handy little bottle but was a little disappointed that the bottle was made of glass. With 2 small kids, things inevitably get thrown around and I was worried that it would end up getting smashed! The instructions were fairly minimal but at the same time, for the type of product it is,lengthy instructions would be unnecessary. It was very easy to apply – just spray on and rub in! It absorbed in easily enough but was ever so slightly greasy – this was not a surprise, really, as a lot of products are. Honestly? I really did not like the fragrance! If I had gone out to purchase this item I would not have bought this due to not liking the fragrance. I must admit the rest of the family liked the fragrance – it just wasn’t to my taste! Despite the fact that we had it for ages, we did not get as much opportunity to use it as I’d have liked, due to the weather being so miserable! However, when we did use it, I never noticed any bites afterwards, so top marks for that. The whole family used it and it seemed to be effective for all of us. As previously mentioned, the smell really didn’t set my world on fire so I was reluctant to use it myself! Myself and my elder daughter have rather sensitive skin, but the repellent did not seem to cause any skin irritation for any of us. I think the quality is rather good – I love that it is still very effective without any of the horrible chemicals you’d get in other repellents. The bottle was a lot smaller than I thought it would be, so I would be reluctant to offer full marks for value for money.  However, a little goes along way, which is probably just as well., I think the design of the product is fine as it is. I would consider buying it because I did find it effective, but I think the smell might put me off! I would recommend this, especially to young families, as it is good for kids due to the natural ingredients. I’m not sure I would recommend it to larger families, though, as the bottle would not last that long and could work out rather expensive. I think overall, the smell and the size of the bottle were the only negatives for me – and even then the smell did not bother the rest of the family! A good repellent, easy on the skin and good for small kids – if you don’t mind the smell of aniseed! Leah Gaines – Zoe &Rachel 2 Years and 13 Months

 Liked the bottle shape and protective top over the spray dispenser. Easy to keep in the medicine cabinet and easy to use. Packaging good for the product. Instructions very easy to follow. The spray action bottle was very easy to use and Lesley was also able to use without my help. This absorbed fairly quickly into the skin .Fragrance was quite strong smelt like aniseed. Lesley did not mind the fragrance. Good to know this is made up of natural ingredients as better for all of us. I did find that the amount of insect bites reduced, especially at night as always seem to wake up with bites in the morning but using this reduced bites dramatically. We all used this and found it to be effective. You do not get much in a bottle, but you do not need to use a lot for each application so does last. Still a little bit expensive. Although it is natural so expect the price to be higher. Lesley did not mind using this insect repellent and we all found it was effective. I would purchase this again in the future as it really did help. Have already recommended. We found this to be an effective insect repellent and liked the fact it was herbal and made of natural ingredients. Patricia Finnegan – Lesley 6 Years
