Ok. It tells you on the bottle that you shouldnt use it on anything plastic. It will eat it somewhat. Try not to use it on you face if you have sensitive skin. After application WASH YOUR HANDS. It will takes the print of your camera buttons, and if you use the bathroom guys it will make your junk heat up. Girls I wouldn't chance it. That being said I was in Africa on Safari and everyone in the truck around me was getting bit by tsetse flies and mosquitoes. I shared this during lunch and not another bite for anyone the rest of the day. It works like nothing I have used before. All in all I spent a week in mosquitoe country and got one bite when I went 12 hours between applications.

I got this 100% DEET for my trip to Costa Rica, and while there, I never got one, single insect bite on the areas of myself where I sprayed it. During my entire trip, I only got one, teeny-tiny bug bite at the nape of my neck, but it went away quickly (I didn't spray it on my face or head, as a precaution). I highly recommend this spray if you are going to the jungle; it really, really works!

I've used 100% DEET for more than twenty years for fishing and being out in the woods, especially at dawn, dusk, and during the night. For the most part, bugs will not bite you, even in areas infested with mosquitoes. Try that with 25% or less DEET products and you'll be eaten alive. Importantly, a small amount of 100% DEET goes a long way. Before you dress, spray small amounts in one hand, work it into both hands, and *lightly* coat your body with it. Take your time. The idea is to apply a thin film all over that feels slightly oily. Always apply a very light coating to your face and head, especially your ears, being careful not to get it in your eyes because it burns a lot. I even work a little into my hair. It smells but not bad. The smell does not go away until you wash it off. Do not liberally apply it so that your skin is wet since it will not dry, you'll ruin your clothing, and it is *not* more effective when overdone.

Purchased this product for a trip to Haiti and was not disappointed. Used less than 1/2 a bottle for 9 days and it really worked!

I received my REPEL 100 quickly and in good condition. It was as pictured and as described by the seller.

100% DEET repellent is quite strong; not everyone needs that level of repellent. I need it and I'm happy with this product.

This product has only drawback, and a minor one at that. It is a spray repellent and the spray head rotates -- more than I would like it to. Occasionally, the spray head rotates more than I want it to and I waste repellent by spraying it in a direction away from myself.

One other thing, not a drawback, but an observation: 1 fluid ounce of repellent spray is not very much spray. This is a small-volume product.

I'm glad that I bought the product and will likely purchase more of it.

Hey, it's 100% DEET. It works great. Wouldn't recommend for someone who has sensitive skin though as it can cause a rash on some people. If you can use it, no worries about biting insects at all. Personally I don't use it on my face but know people who have with no ill effects.

There are others that are more convenient, easier to apply and smell better. However, this stuff flat works (if it doesn't knock you out when you first apply it). If you absolutely don't want to get bit, this is the stuff.

Purchased for our trip to the Caribbean. Perfect size for travel and works well (on mosquitos). Only thing was I did not see anywhere before buying that it comes with two. So I ordered "two" and got four. :) Even better.

I rate this in the middle because of the following:

It works well, as it states. While wearing it, nothing bit us. Well, some ticks bit my husband but he may not have applied as carefully/thoroughly as I did. I did not end up with a single mosquito, black fly, no see um, etc. bite on me though they still swarmed all around us, and found no ticks on me at all - attached or crawling. There is NO DENYING that it is effective.

However, the bottle is leaky - mine leaked during shipment, so the cardboard box that it arrived in was wet from lost product. As another person stated, the liquid took some of the printing on the bottle right off. To transport it with me, I need to make sure it's in a tightly sealed plastic baggie.

Also, be careful what you apply this to. It is VERY STRONG. I wore a white t-shirt and white socks and they were both stained yellow where the product made contact. I threw them out when I got home. I also was using a black real leather backpack, and some got onto the straps and it degraded the leather a little bit so that it left black marks on my t-shirt near the front of my shoulders where the straps rubbed against me, and the straps also feel tacky now where the product got on them.

My husband was standing a little too close to his black car when he applied his, and some got on the car. He wiped it off using a plain dry napkin. The napkin came away black as if a little of the paint transferred.

So in summary - works GREAT, but be careful where it is applied.
