This works very well in keeping bugs away!

And it has no nasty chemical smell, like other repellents.

Well, to start, I want to say that I am a HUGE Burt's Bees fan, so when I was looking for an all natural bug repellent and found out they had one, I was very excited. Unfortunately, I really wish I had never bought it.

Positives:

-Scent: This has a really pleasant citrus scent to it that I really did like (however my husband though I smelled like I just sprayed myself in Pledge and he was NOT a fan, lol).

Negatives:

-It attracts bugs: What amazes me - having come on here to check out the reviews - is that people gave it 5-stars even after admitting it attracted beetles to them. That's astonishing really. Saying an insect repellent attracted bugs, and yeah, woohoo, go 5 out of 5 stars! Very bizarre. Ants seemed to be attracted to the scent and some black ants even bit me!! Beetles were also attracted to the scent - I felt like a giant walking insect sugar bait!

-Rash: I looked around the net, including reviews on here (wish I had done that BEFORE using it, but always had positive experiences with all other products by BB) and a rash is a common result of using this. I have a nasty rash on my arms and legs now that itch intensely - it's much worse than a normal bug bite - and had do run out and get Benadryl and hydro-cortisone cream. Now instead of a few bug bites, I have bug bites AND a huge rash.

-Oily: This is one OILY product. It's really quite disgusting how slimy and oily it is. I realize it's made with many oils, but it seems they needed to adjust the mixture if the end result looks like you just took a bath in oil. In addition, because of the extreme amount of oils in it, I also ended up getting some acne from it as well, even on my shoulders and upper arms, which is VERY abnormal, that never happens to me.

I bought this bug spray to combat the amount of mosquitoes there are in the Alaskan atmosphere, and was pretty pleased with it. I especially liked the scent, which is citrus and zippy, much nicer than your typical lumberjack scented bug repellent. I wouldn't reccomend it to someone canvassing the rain forests, but it's a good basic repellent for daily use or picnics or something where you don't want to smell like you were coated in DEET beforehand. It comes in a cute metal bottle with a spray nozzle, but it doesn't produce a mist of spray, you'll actually apply this more like a handful of tanning oil or lotion, with your hand.

I used this insect repellent while I was building a maze for a fundraiser. It really keeped me safe from the misquitoes of southern Mississippi. And it has no nasty chemical smell, like other repellents. It just smells of lemon oil.

It is a little oily, but alot goes a very long way.

This stuff has all the repellent herbs/smell in there and it does repeal the bugs but it's so OILY that it's pointless to use it. This one needs to be reformulated using a non-oily base. It might work better as a aromatherapy type oil you burn under a small candle, (which I have done to repel bugs outside.)
**UPDATE: I found a great 100% Natural Insect Repellent , non-oily, safe for kids, I use it on the dogs, smells & works fantastic. It's by Herbaria and it's called Citronella Mist. Also repels CHIGGERS.

Verified Purchase
I didn't have very good luck w/ the product. It didn't repel mosquitoes and Japanese beetles started flying into me. Creepy. But if you like Japanese beetles, then this is the product for you.

Let me start by saying that I am usually a fan of Burt's Bees products.

This herbal insect repellant not only failed at keeping bugs away but actually attracted a swarm of wasps. I was given the choice of using deet or this herbal spray. Not having access to a shower for the night, a few buddies and myself chose to douse ourselves with Burt's juice. Fast forward 5 minutes, a swarm of angry wasps decended upon us like it was the rapture. The only person who escaped unscathed was the one who didn't spray anything. Unfortunately, I was stung over 10 times.

Trust your instincts, there are times when all natural is not the way to go.

The product smells very nice and is very easy to apply, but it did not seem to repel insects and caused a rash on my arms and a blistery rash on my spouses neck. We won't use it, again.
