Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works, but not for those with sensitive noses. As soon as it came in the mail I decided to put it to the ultimate test and put it on one leg and walked through the marshes by my house. The citronella scent was so strong I thought I may have used too much. However, not a single bug bothered me. Neither leg was bitten. At work the next day I put a small patch on my ankles and it worked wonderfully keeping the mosquitoes away, though the scent was still incredibly strong. Still, smelling so strongly of citronella is a much better option than the alternatives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from freedom i am an archaeologist so i am outdoors A LOT! i love this product it has never let me down. i live in CA but i have also used this awesome spray in AZ, Utah and Nevada. It is an oil so you do have to rub it in but since it is an oil it lasts for a really long time and isn't sticky which is important if you are working in the desert and there is a ton of dust blowing around. The smell is nice and fades quickly and is a million times better than a gross chemical smell. It feels good knowing that i am not covered in chemicals all summer long. oh! and i also have very sensitive and this is never irritating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product! I have been on the lookout for DEET-free insect repellents for a while. So when I came across this product I decided to give it a try, and I'm so glad I did! I am normally a favorite amongst mosquitoes, and wearing this significantly decreased the number of bites. It makes you smell like a citronella candle, and leaves no sticky residue on your skin. (side note: it is pure oil, so you have to rub it in) I am incredibly satisfied and will purchase more in the future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Trusted but odorous I'm glad the spray is more of a spray than the pump of oil it used to be. It is still very oily, I would like more of a mist. But I just rub it in like a cricket. Also it has a very strong citronella scent. This is ok with me, as long as these Ohio River Valley uber-mosquitoes stay away. Also my 3 year old nephew is allergic to the other bug sprays, so this is a safer option. I love Burt's Bees.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! As deet-free insect repellents go, this is the only one that I have come across that actually kept the bugs away. Unlike the traditional aerosol bug sprays, you don't have to reapply this stuff every hour, and you can rub it on your face without worrying about getting deet in your eyes and mouth. There are a couple of cons: this is more like an oil than a spray, so it needs to be massaged onto the skin, and it doesn't mix well with clothing, either. But from personal experience, I can say that the repellent was effective enough that it didn't matter that my clothes weren't sprayed.

Asked by: sybil
I have been using this on my almost 1 year old mini doodles since they were 9 weeks and have had no issues with it bothering their skin whatsoever. I just rub some on my hands and rub it on them 3x a day when we're in the yard playing ball as well as when we go to the park or out somewhere where they will be in grass . As far as using it along with the Frontline I'm not really sure. My pups are on Nexguard ( a chewable) that does Not repel fleas and ticks but kills them once they are on the pups. The Burt's repels them and I'm seriously thinking of just using the Burts without the Nexguard to see how they do. I'd much rather have them chemical free! If Frontline is a repellent then you could try just using the Burts and see how it goes. It does say on the bottle that it is safe for pets.

Is this product safe to use on infants less than 6 months old? My daughter is 4 months told. Thanks in advance!

It is best to ask for professional opinion. I suggest you ask your pediatrician to be sure. I started using this product on my daughter when she reached her 1st birthday.
