Fairly standard packaging, no offensive smell on first whiff and a nice compact bottle. The packaging I found a little bit boring but it’s clear what it is. I’m very concerned about the use of DEET for children so have really done my research on guideline and recommendations, as we travel regularly.  I didn’t think the bottle gave enough reassurance about the safe use of insect repellent on children. Fragrance Not offensive but not overly pleasant it had a very strong undertone of an almost chemical citrus smell. This never caused any skin irritation. I used this and also used on both my children. I do tend to get bitten a lot and in the past I’ve had to have hospital treatment in Greece and Egypt on 4 separate holidays. The kids weren’t bitten when we used the product which was a great relief,  I was bitten but with none of the usual effects that I get. Quality of this product is very good. No stickiness, went on easily.  I would prefer more detailed information and tips for use on children. For me if it stops the bugs it’s worth the price. Design maybe a more cheerful image on the tin perhaps more of  holiday feel than a trek in the jungle feel. Iw ould purchase this again and would recommend. Easy to use and really does do what it says on the tin. Karen English – Holly & Benjamin 3 &2 years

Nice compact bottle. Packaging is good, just thought it could look more friendly. Instructions nice and simple. I found the fragrance a bit too strong when you first spray this on. This never caused any skin irritation while using. We all used this insect repellent. We do not normally get bitten a lot but just wanted to make sure our little boy was protected just in case. This was very effective and we did not get bitten by insects when using this spray. A very good quality product. I do feel the price is a bit on the high side as would not normally spend so much on insect repellent. I would purchase this item as it was effective and would recommend. It made my skin feel soft; however my hands looked very greasy after use! Perfect to stop getting bitten. Jessica Peters –Charlie 23 Months

Good quality Pump action spray bottle. Compact, easy to use and perfect for the job in hand. Instructions very clear. When you first spray on aroma very strong, but this does calm down quickly. Really absorbed into the skin quickly. No skin irritation experienced. The whole familyused this as we are all prone to insect bites in the summer. This was effective and none of us were bitten. This is easy to apply and very effective. I must admit this is one of the most effective repellents I have used. The price is high, but you are paying for the effectiveness of the product and this works. Design good for insect repellent as really you just want to know it works. Effective during the summer months, and worked wonders while in Egypt. I would purchase and have highly recommended. This works, just a slight strong aroma when first spray on but stops you getting bitten. Robert Pearson
