Repel 100 insect repellent – review

Ahh… All the wonderful beauty of nature. Mountains, hills, woods, grass plains, rivers, creeks, untouched terrain. The sight nurtures your eyes. Fresh air and scents fill your lungs with radiant health. The sound of wildlife makes you calm and awake… You want to stay in this relaxed state. Undisturbed by minor irritating and pesky issues.

Anyway we all know, that being in nature means being part of nature. That means obeying the laws. And I’m not talking about police here. As you probably figured out, there are no civilians in nature. Everybody has to eat, right? And bugs are no exclusion.

This is a review of Repel 100 insect repellent formula. I can guess, that 100 in Repel 100 mean almost 100% DEET content. And this is where it gets serious, and not only for bugs. This product is not just some cover scent. The active ingredients can cause irritations if applied on damaged skin. Keep in mind that, if it gets bugs it can get to you also if improperly used. High concentrate and quantities can dissolve low density plastics, some synthetic fabrics and even lacquer. So do not overdo it on your clothes. Better to clean your hands after application, because you can damage your phone, camera, etc. Always follow recommendations on the package and you will be ok.

Despite the warning above, the protection Repel 100 provides is superb. The effect is instant and long lasting, providing 10 hour protection in relatively dry conditions. For damper conditions more frequent use might be needed. This formula is perfect not only for middle climate zones. If you are planning a vacation somewhere exotic, it is wise to seriously consider this product. Climbing that mountain, stalking game, camping or just plain having fun. Pushing hordes of bloodthirsty mosquitoes away will make your day.

You can get this product from amazon
