Very effective product and has a nice scent which my kids love. I'm not sure if it is available in a bigger size. If so, I will definitely be purchasing a bigger size soon.

This is the best repellent stick I have used so far. It smells strong but pleasant and really keeps mozzies at bay. Highly recommended!!!

An excellent, very effective product. One of my children suffers from excema so I have to be extremely careful as to what products I use. This insect repellent not only keeps the mozzies away very effectively but causes no reactions on my child’s sensitive skin. The stick means easy and accurate application too. I am going to give the spray version a try too.

Took this with on an overseas trip, smells amazing and kept all the critters away. Just remember to re-apply!
06/02/2019, By Lucy
Personally I don't loooove the smell (citronella yuk) but it seems good otherwise!

Effective and easy to use. Doesn't leave a sticky residue like some repellents.
26/11/2018, By Elizna
Not only does it smell amazing, it works, no bites!

Brilliant product it's so worth it.

Kids love the citronella smell. Good product, works well against insects.
23/07/2018, By Natalie
It works well & it's easy to travel with.
21/07/2018, By Lana
Works well but I prefer the spray, easier to apply to busy bums!!
30/06/2018, By Ron
A bit mild - but still effective. Double-up in high summer. 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!)
07/06/2018, By Biancca
works very well. always have it on hand
19/01/2018, By Belinda
Works brilliantly and great smell!
15/01/2018, By Evelyn
A great product for my toddler who always seems to get bitten and I'm very happy that there are no chemicals involved.
09/01/2018, By Tandy
Smells good and I suppose it works if you smear it literally everywhere but honestly unfortunately it did not really work for me
05/01/2018, By Gail
Didn't work too well for me.
05/01/2018, By Sarah
I found it to be very effective on my toddlers skin, no bites. I also use the spray as it's easier to apply but find the stick more effective.
04/01/2018, By Tammy
Good repellent but doesn’t last all night
28/11/2017, By Mary
It worked well for us and my little one didnt have any reactions or allergies to it. Quite a strong smell but gets the job done.
08/11/2017, By Tracey
After trying out 2 nights in a row found it to be ineffective in repelling mosquitoes. Still got harassed by them and bitten several times even in areas where I applied the stick. Bought the spray too and found that works better!
02/10/2017, By Carla
Very strong fragrance and burns the skin when applied directly. But work well when you dab it on your clothes. Will not use on baby's skin
10/09/2017, By KA
This is a small travel size, pleasant and great for kids' school camps for instance as well.
20/06/2017, By Roxanne
This is the only Pure Beginnings product that's let me down. Mosquitoes here don't seem to be deterred by it.
14/06/2017, By James
Smells nice enough for a repellent.Doesn't keep the bugs away the entire night, but far better than other products Ive tried thus far, so I will stick with it.
23/04/2016, By Germaine
After applying to my baby and my own skin, we still got bitten by mosquitos. I even applied it several times during the course of the day and it still didn help.
30/05/2015, By Rachael
I amm on my second stick now and will definitely buy again so as an insect repellent the product works very well. The smell is strong but does not bother my little one and when I have also used it I am often complimented on how good I smell! It works well for several hours.
I do have two criticisms... the stick disappears too quickly. We live in a hot climate and I have removed the cap before to find the stick is starting to melt. And my other problem is the applicator. If you push the stick out too much you have to push it stick back down before you put the lid back on so when it is hot it ends up very mushy.
17/03/2015, By Jessica
a very strong smell, but ti really gets the job done!
06/01/2015, By Nermine
Very effective. Easy to use, small and convenient to carry around and has a scent that is not too potent. Great product!
20/11/2014, By Susan
It works really well, great to know Im not putting all sort of chemicals on my skin to keep the mozzies away.
18/02/2014, By Victoria
I am so impressed with this stick. I have been using it every night over these hot and humid nights and it has kept the mozzies away (with the windows open). Even if I just leave the lid off and place it next to my bed it keeps them away. The smell is very strong which I love but it might bother others...
