Optimistic and excited to try something different. Basic squeezy bottle with screw top.  Quite small and equally small font on the back. Instructions to the point and stating the obvious. This lotion was very easy to apply as very similar to a face/hand cream. Absorbs quite easy but leaves a slight ‘residue’ on skin. I did find that by using this cream it did stop the insect bites so worked for me. It wasn’t used on anyone else.  I was slightly worried about using it on baby as her skin is really sensitive even though it does say on instructions suitable for over 6 months. Never caused any skin irritation while using this lotion. This is a very good and very high quality insect repellent lotion.  I do feel the price tag is quite high. This is an essential item for holiday, but I personally feel price is very high.  The design of the tube is good. As this has been effective I would purchase again and would certainly recommend. Does exactly what it says on the tube and it worked. Laura Devlin – Olivia 10 Months

Good compact tube, well-presented and looked good quality. The tube is easy to dispense the insect repellent and received 2 60ml tubes which are ideal size to take on holiday. Instructions clear and precise and good quality information about the product on the tube.  Lotion is easy to apply and absorbs quickly. I work outside so used this every day. Was effective and did prevent insect bites. The rest of the family did try this and all agreed it was a very effective insect repellent. Never caused any skin reaction. It also states this works for 12 hours and I do agree this did last. The tube was small and you would think this would not last, but you do not need to use much to obtain protection. The price is high, but this works. I would purchase this again and have recommended as very effective. A good quality insect repellent that is easy to apply and works. Richard Pearson

Good quality tube, well-made and ideal size to keep in bag or take on holiday. The tube is simple tube with screw top, so easy to use and apply the quantity you require. I found the lotion very easy to apply, only need a small amount each time used. This did sink into my skin very quickly and I also felt moisturised my skin too. It did leave a sticky residue immediately after application, but within minute or so this was all absorbed and you did not realise you had this lotion on. This had a nice gentle aroma and never caused any skin irritation. I used this at home daily as we live by a river so always insects flying about and was the perfect size to take on holiday. I normally get bitten to bits every summer, but this certainly reduced the amount of insect bites this year. Was one of the most effective insect repellents I have used and I must admit I was impressed. Never heard of this company before but I will be purchasing more as off on Safari next month and this will be a ‘Must Have’. The price is high for a small tube, but it does last and does help reduce the amount of insect bites. I would recommend. A tidy tube, easy to apply and effective against insect bites.
