I get bit by mosquitoes all the time! I usually use Off spray, but my husband bought me this natural Repel spray to try. My first thought when I smelled it through the tip of the bottle was that it was going to be a nice change in smell from the typical Off smell. It has a nice lemon scent that was not bad smelling it through the tip.
When I actually put it on my arms and legs it started to get really strong in its smell, but it wasn't bothering me too much. When I rubbed a bit on my face, everything changed. I could not breath at all! The odor was so overwhelming that I could not take a breath without choking. I had to walk fast to get fresh air to breath. I had to go rub some of it off just to breath. Even then, the scent was so powerful all I wanted to do was shower and get it off.
It did do a good job of keeping the mosquitoes off while I was outside. I only stayed out for about 30 minutes in the woods while I had it on, but I did not get bit once. I think if you only use a couple sprays on your arms and legs it would be alright. It did leave a slight oily feeling on my skin though.
