I am not a big fan of insect repellent, but sometimes we don't have a choice to use one or else we're going to be eaten alive. When it is the case, I always use « Watkins insect repellent lotion ».
It reppels stable flies, mosquitoes, ticks, black flies etc... I mostly use it on vacation at the beach. My legs often has bites from the fleas that are found in the sand. So I put my sunscreen on (it is very important), then I rub my legs with Watkins insect repellent lotion. It is very effective as I won't get any bites with this lotion on.
One good thing about this lotion is the scent, it has a nice one. It is not too strong. The Watkins insect repellent lotion contains 28.5% DEET. This lotion will protect you from the diseases insects carry, such as Lyme disease and Nile virus, for about 6 hours.
You can find this lotion in 2 sizes. One in a 80 ml tube which is sold for about $ 7, 99 and on a 240 ml bottle which is sold about $13, 00.
