Rated 5 out of 5 by cyclist great stuff
smells very nice; quite effective. I live in a wooded area and it is as effective as anything else we have tried. An oil that has to be rubbed into the skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by andon I Love this product!
I absolutely love this product it smells great. this product really works. we live in Georgia where there are terrible gnats. We live in a low land area where there are mosquitoes and this stuff works. the best part about it is that it's all natural. I feel very secure in use it on my little children. but I do wish that it was a little bit cheaper. other than the price I think this is a great product and would highly recommend it especially if you have a gnat problem!

Rated 4 out of 5 by onehotrocker13 Smells strong but works good
My husband jokes when me and my 21 mnt old daughter wear this that bugs, and no one else for that matter, wants to come around us! I personally like the smell. It is oily, but I use oils on my skin anyway so that doesn't bother me. I don't think it stops all bites, but really cuts back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jones1279 A Little oily
We are just now getting into mosquito season, but this seems to work ok. The reason I won't give it higher ratings is because it is oily I prefer lighter sprays like California baby so I don't feel the need to wipe my hands after spraying. This also doesn't spray well so you must rub it in which gets the oil all over your hands.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SkyOwlKey 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 Palameno Excellent Product
Few years ago, I was sting by yellow bee multiple places on my body while visiting a friend who lives in country. She had Burt's Bees Insect repellent and spayed on my right away. It is an amazing product as I was pain free in no time. I was shocked with the results and highly recommend this product to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MicaLeigh 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 Oldschoolgirl 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 Linnie LOVE THIS!
Best repellent ever! Was so disappointed to see it isn't available online as I cannot find it anywhere and am running low.
My boys and I use this with no allergic reactions and I use it on our almost 1 year old mini golden doodles as well. I have been using it on the pups since they were 9 weeks with no allergic reactions whatsoever. Smells wonderful and really does a great job keeping the bugs away!!

Grandchildren are able to play in the grass without having any bug bites when they come in. We also use it on the dogs when walking in wooded area or marshy fields and they are not effected by bug bites. The fragrance is wonderful. This is the only repellent I have used that does what it says it will do. I have recommended the product to friends and family and those who use it are just at pleased as I am.

Rated 5 out of 5 by msifles saved me this summer
I had small brown spiders in my apartment that bit me many times. I ordered this product and purchased 3 cans. I put it on me morning and night and after I started putting the repellent on the bites stopped. I am so grateful that this product worked so well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by blitzwalker please bring it back!!!!!
our family loved this product. it worked against Midwestern mosquitos and we felt safe using it on ourselves and our children. the only problem we ever had was that the bottle leaked if it fell over, but we can put up with something like that for such an exceptional product. PLEASE DON'T LEAVE US FEELING TRAPPED IN OUR HOME DURING MOSQUITO SEASON!!!!

What happened to Burt Bees insect repellent!! I am a park ranger in Florida and I use this product religiously!! WAAAAh!!! This is the best insect repellent hands down!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MarieBee Works Great
This product works great! I never get bit when wearing it & it does not wreak of chemicals.
One Note: After spraying, make sure to rub it into your skin. While this makes your hands a bit oily, it ensures that the product gets evenly spread everywhere.
LOVE THIS STUFF!

Rated 4 out of 5 by isadorable Worked in the Amazon
I recently spent a month working in, literally, the middle of the Amazon. To give you an idea of how remote: the nearest town was two hours away from our site. I was living on a floating house on the river, next to the thick vegetation of the flooded forest. Know what that means? A ha-yuge number of multiple species of mosquitos. Insect repellent is a necessity, especially because some of those crazy things carry serious diseases in that area. Most of my coworkers were using Off and other harsh products that contain high percentages of deet and other nasty chemicals. I stuck with my BB Herbal Insect Repellent and not only did it repel most of the mosquitos (it is nearly impossible to repel all mosquitos there; they are just vicious), but I also love the smell, strong as it is. Soooooo much better than the traditional chemically stuff. So, I did suffer a few bites (that's why four stars instead of five), but hey, I was in the middle of the rainforest.

Rated 1 out of 5 by dcnj Didn't work so well
I put the insect repellent on and was immediately attacked by mosquitoes and left with 5 bites on my legs. It's disappointing because I love Burt's Bees.

Not only has this product kept the bugs at bay, when I do not use it and get bit, I apply it right away and it relieves the itching and reduces the welt. I gave a bottle to a friend who is highly reactive to bug bites and she couldn't believe how well it kept the bugs away.
