Repel 40 Lotion repellent
By Bruce G. Templeton
I used this product in the jungle in Belize for 7 weeks this past May-June, one bottle lasted the whole session and did an amazing job of keeping the insects off...highly recommended!

GET THE LOTION - WORKS GREAT ON MOSQUITOS!
My Husband and I went to a Farm Dinner in Boulder, CO in the middle of mosquito season. I bought this Repel Sportsmen Max Deet Lotion at Target as a "just in case" back up. The OFF spray the farm provided didn't help at all! But this lotion, you'd literally see a mosquito land on us, then jump off immediately within seconds -- The whole table of 35 people ended up passing it around. WE WERE SAVED!!!
- Not a strong odor (unlike the spray)
- Lotion doesn't last 10 hrs but long enough to relax and reapply about 3 or 4 hrs later
- OK to put on face
- OK on clothes -- Just rub it on your palms before applying to clothing (It didn't leave any stains or ruin the material when we did that at the Farm Dinner)

works okay, but buy elsewhere
By H. Harper
The product works okay, about as well as anything else that contains DEET will work. You'll want to bathe as soon as possible after applying and exposure, but it will keep mosquitoes, for the most part, away from you.
However I realized I paid way too much for this through Amazon. I bought it because we had a camp out coming up and stores had already put away the sunblock/insect repellent sections. I paid $8 for this on Amazon, and the very next day saw it in Walmart's camping aisle for $4 - same size, same product. So check the camping section of your store before ordering here.
