Great product, only mozzie repellent that works
12/10/2023, By Lee
If you don't like a strong citronella smell don't use it. Personally I love it. I don't have to hold my breath while spraying it on.
28/01/2023, By PB
Definitely works against mosquitos. Very effective.

Does work to repel mosquitoes. Very effective.
01/11/2022, By Madz
Mozzies love me so I'm always the guinea pig to try repellants prior to using them for the kids. This one works great and we love the smell. Easy to apply. Also keeps flies at bay. Only downside is I've found it doesn't last the whole night to keep mozzies at bay.
29/10/2022, By ALF
Excellent insect repellent- spray on feet before evening walk - no mozzie bites. Non-toxic & effective
07/02/2022, By Barbara
Mosquitos love my husband and he has tried numerous insect repellent sprays. So far Pure Beginnings has been the best at keeping the mozzies away and relieving itchy bites.
20/07/2021, By Werner
Smells amazing, works alright but tbh in Durban the mosquitoes are a bit too much and you do need something stronger (especially if you're like me, whom mosquitoes are ridiculously attracted to)
28/06/2021, By TK_ZA
I personally think this spray works very well, but the rest of my family finds the aroma overpowering, so they prefer not to use it. It's perfect if you like the aroma.
06/01/2021, By Frances
This is the best insect repellent! My kids love it!

Quite a strong smell - but works like a charm!
14/12/2020, By Micah
Quite a potent smell considering it's a baby-friendly brand. I found it a bit overpowering...
09/12/2020, By Kaela
Nice and gentle on skin. works well.
02/12/2020, By AIMEE
I was really hoping this spray would be the one, unfortunately it is not too effective against our hectic mozzies. It has a good smell and is very moisturising but unfortunately I get bitten almost straight after spraying.
26/11/2020, By Kaela
Smells great and a go to for summer
29/10/2020, By Sarah
Smells amazing!
12/10/2020, By Tessa
Very good repellent

I love this for the whole family, smells divine and does an effective job!
07/07/2020, By Bevan
Absolutely love this product, no matter the conditions keeps all insects away. no need for a mosquito net at all if I have this on hand.
09/06/2020, By Donald Fish Hoek
Very effective and I find it also helps me control mealy bug and their attendant ants on my plants.
24/05/2020, By First born
Doing its job
25/04/2020, By Roseanne
This product definitely works, however the smell is potent so if its a smell you don't like its unpleasant. My daughter loves it but I personally don't like the smell.

Does an okay job. need to keep reapplying it.
14/04/2020, By Lou
Great item and lives up to its claims.
13/04/2020, By Lou
Does the job - good product
15/03/2020, By Yve
Wonderful natural repellent spray - it definitely works !!! We have been in Zambia and none of us had any problems with Mosquito bites.
03/03/2020, By Curry
Using this on our baby after baths and she hasn’t been bitten. The citronella smell is strong but it doesn’t bother me/ us- we were ready for it after the usual supermarket aisle artificially scented air sprays. No greasy after feel and you may need to apply again, but it’s alright. Also sometimes spray on our bedding. Thanks to staff at FTN brand new walk in shop for recommending it!
26/02/2020, By Stevette
Kept the mosquitoes at bay. Does have a strong citronella smell

I’ve been using this product for years – it’s effective, lasts long, super easy and quick to apply and, it’s vegan friendly – a real winner.

Smell doesn't drive you crazy
11/01/2020, By RAY
AS with other purely natural insect repellent sprays - this works as well as can be. I like sprays as you can spray your bed clothes head toes everywhere and I like the smell of the natural ingredients so long as the mozzies hate the smell I am happy. Used this in Kruger and minimal mozzie bites. AS always you must combine this with a fan (if in Kruger for example) or aircon, and this with a fan you will be 100% guaranteed of keeping insects and mozzies far away!
05/01/2020, By Helper
Good investment
21/12/2019, By Lesley
I love the smell, but don't know how effective it is, as no mozzie problem yet!
17/12/2019, By Annette
Smells like plain citronella oil
Didn't repel the mozzies at all - still got bitten
15/12/2019, By Ian R
Great product, love the smell and the fact that once sprayed on I feel no stickiness or sliminess. Really keeps the mozzies away!!
18/11/2019, By Jackie
Natural any time when it comes to products like this. I cannot bear breathing in any of those toxic sprays. This works just as well and has a decent smell.
23/10/2019, By Aneesa
So happy with this product. My sister in law recommended it to me as it is safe for use on her little baby. Works just as well on adults to keep mosquitoes and even fleas at bay! Smells like a fresh squeeze of lemon. This is going to remain an essential in our home, especially during the summer months :)
24/05/2019, By Tandy
This spray bottle is great because you can dispense the exact amount you need - which is surprisingly little, as it spreads well and the citronella scent is quite strong! Unlike most traditional bug repellants, it is not waxy or oily so you don't feel icky sticky after application. And who said it's for kids?! I am 40+ and use it for myself! ;)
06/05/2019, By Laura
It's the only product I trust with my kids, used it since they were newborns.
15/03/2019, By Lisa
I'm almost certain that this will be the only product we'll use from now on. The smell is pretty strong, but I've noticed that it has kept mozzies away more than Tabard or Peaceful Sleep ever did. We went camping a few weeks ago in the peak of summer and this totally saved us. And the smell goes away once it settles, plus we're also used to it now. Sometimes we spray it into the air, and other times onto ourselves. But it's really great to know that there aren't chemicals absorbing into our skin during the night!
26/02/2019, By Mandi
This product works well. The only thing is the smell is a bit potent. Its not an ugly smell, but it is very strong.
23/01/2019, By Mel
Overwhelming citronella. No idea if it works because kids hate the smell and refuse to use it.
Would not recommend this, the smell is overpowering and borderline nauseating
23/01/2019, By Gina
The stick ones go tacky after a while and then they don't work any more. I was so happy when they brought out this spray! It is by far the best mozzie repellent I have come across.
I keep one in my handbag during Summer in case I find myself out at mozzie time - I can't be without it!
22/01/2019, By Anita
Great natural insect repellent! Helps with the mozzies in the summer and I have also used it outdoors, whiles camping - and it worked. Doesn't smell to bad. Also got a free stick with my purchase :)
21/01/2019, By Marina
Works well. My son is very sensitive and this is a perfect alternative to chemicals. I also use it. The smell is strong but it is an insect repellent.
13/01/2019, By Tania
I used this on my 4 and 2 year old and it kept the mozzies at bay. It's very strong smelling, but it applies so well
30/12/2018, By Vicki
Still got bitten and smell was way too strong. I wish there was an equal alternative to peaceful sleep
28/12/2018, By Jenny
Definitely works very well. Is strong smelling but not unpleasant to me.Will deffinitely keep on buying it.
24/12/2018, By Kirsten
Very strong smelling but it works and goes on nicely! I am up in St Lucia and also sprayed round the sides of the bed earlier in the evening as a preventative which also helped.
08/12/2018, By Trevor
Strong smell, but I'd buy it again!
01/12/2018, By Kay
Such a strong but fantastic wonder why the mosquitoes don’t wanna come near me
30/11/2018, By Lee
Effective and easy to use. Doesn't leave a sticky residue like some repellents.
27/11/2018, By Kerissa
Light, non-sticky and easy to apply. Loving this product.
16/11/2018, By Barbara
My kids love this .... they eagerly use it every night.
22/10/2018, By Nokhanyo
This somehow ended up in my daughter's eye and it didn't burn or sting or irritate her in any way. I take that as a good sign
03/08/2018, By Ren
Works well. Smells good
21/07/2018, By Lana
This stuff not only smells amazing it really works, my little one loves when I spray him and the smell doesn't bother him. We live in a heavily mosquito infested area and I've only been bitten when I didn't apply this, now I have one at home and one in the baby bag!!
30/06/2018, By Ron
This range is the most wonderful value for money - my friends purchased this for their little one and I'm now recommending it to everyone with babies (I even use the range targeted at adults - the deodorant works a charm!)
29/05/2018, By Aurelia
I basically like everything about this product - the smell is very nice, it doesn't leave a sticky layer on your skin, and it definitely helps to keep mosquitos away.
27/05/2018, By Sumzy
Good clever product , with all natural ingredients. Just that the smell is quite strong and as such I don’t use it on my baby as often as I’m Meant to for fear of some sort of reaction. But definitely worth a try for people who aren’t as sensitive to smell
16/05/2018, By Charné
As an adult using this, I couldn't be happier. It smells like the days camping out! It makes me quite nostalgic. It doesn't have ANY side-effects and overall a lovely product.
14/05/2018, By Kristi-Jade
For someone who is constantly harassed by mozzies, I decided to give this a try particularly because of the chemical free and and it being safer for your skin. This product really worked, has a lovely smell and the mozzies haven't got to me since using it. Only downside is that it doesn't come in bigger bottles.
15/04/2018, By Jessica
I think this is probably the best natural alternative to the toxic insect repellents that fill our supermarket shelves.
Although it does not work as well as those nasty commercial products (have to reapply every 3 hours), the ease of mind that it is not harmful to you or your close ones make up for it.

I, personally, like the consistency - it's not whitening or greasy.
I am also in love with the smell!
04/04/2018, By Shireen
like the size; fits in travel carry-on; works effectively; good smell
01/03/2018, By Ilse
Fantastic smell and very gentle. Works super well to keep those nasty mozzies at bay.
12/02/2018, By H
I like the scent.
17/01/2018, By Nicole
I like the way the repellent smells, but it doesn't last through the night and I therefore wake up being eaten by mozzies.
09/01/2018, By Lindie
Love it. Spray is not sticky, does not have a harsh smell and it does not irritate the little ones skin. very effective.
05/01/2018, By Sarah
Really great and effective repellent, especially when combing it with the repellent stick.
04/01/2018, By Tammy
Good repellent but doesn’t last all night
12/12/2017, By Olive
What a great product, i will definitely have to get more. Since i have been using it, even the dogs has been sleeping outside the room. Great product, thanks guys.
23/11/2017, By Tracey M
Semi-effective in repelling mosquitoes, requires topping up in the middle of the night as the smell tends to wear off. Otherwise lovely gentle, refreshing spray that sinks into the skin and has no bad reactions or chemicals.
30/06/2017, By Jessica
It smells amazing!
I have very sensitive skin and this product didn't make me break out. It doesn't leave stains/ oily residue on sheets and it actually works really well! You don't even need to cover your whole body with it, just here-and-there and you are good to go. Moisturises too!
13/02/2017, By Tashwell and Carol-Lynne
we use to buy the repellent stick but it was not as effective as the repellent spray
we love the spray it works so well and we only spray once at night and once during the day.
we love the smell in fact we love the smell so much we started buying the citronella oil for our burners, it really does exactly what it says ! Happy parents!
11/01/2017, By Lauren
* the liquid is still wet were I sprayed and mosquitos will land there
*smell is insanely overwhelming. Anyone who has used it started sneezing
*dispite spraying every exposed area of my son and daughter regularly, they are still being eaten alive buy mosquitoes
