What a product
21/11/2019, By Karen
Great product and it really does work, unlike many other products.

Super product, strong lemon grass smell which keeps the mossies at bay. We live on a farm and it keeps the flies off my arms and legs too, so I reccomend this product
22/10/2019, By Judy
love the fact that this product does not smell of citronella...a favorite with the whole family. Slightly harsh on very sensitive skin, but then we just dab it on pajamas.

I’m a mosquito magnet but this product has really worked for me. I really don’t like using chemical repellants but this cream has a lovely natural smell and deters those horrible mosquitoes. I notice it’s effectiveness when I don’t put it on and end up with itchy bites. I have one tube in the bathroom for bedtime and one I keep in the kitchen for when I’m outside and recently got one for my niece to try.

works very well and very fast to case the mosquitoes far away with a reasonable fragrance

As with all Victorian Garden products this smells gorgeous!

I've tried many. This is the only one that has actually worked for me from the natural selection available.
20/09/2018, By Deidre
Great product! I'll be stocking up for this coming mozzie season.
24/06/2018, By Annelien
It really does smell VERY nice and isn't sticky like many repellents I know
17/05/2018, By Nadine
It feels great not to smell like chemicals when applying repellent. Good product!
29/03/2018, By Jenny
it works well as mosquito repellant but does have a very strong smell. My kids call it my people repellant
13/03/2018, By Celina
Best product cause it works so well and free of all the bad stuff! Will order forever...
09/01/2018, By Nettie
This product really works. I tried it out whilst camping in December and had not been bitten by one mosquito. A good natural replacement for all the toxic store products!
27/11/2017, By Jen
I love this repellent, it works so well for me, keeps the mozzies away from my ears at night and wherever I dab it. It's a pleasant smell too.

Bought this for my mum. Effective and certainly better than chemical laden products
06/10/2017, By Andrea
I got this as a sample and tested it out in giant mozzie infested humid Hong Kong. You have to apply it a while before going outside it seems, for it to sink in - spent an entire evening outdoors and was totally fine, but in the jungles where you sweat a lot, it doesn't seem to do the trick unfortunately. Luckily for your average summer evening braai there aren't swarms of mozzies! Will keep using this for non extreme environments :)

This worked well for me. The scent is nice too.
02/06/2016, By Lorraine
I love this product. I normally have them buzzing round my ears all night and tend to get bites on my hands which is extremely itchy and irritating. I only use this product when I hear a mosquito and just put it on my ears and tops of my more noise and no bites. Love the scent as well,
12/05/2016, By Ninette
First night i tried this, it did not work at all and my hubby tried it on his skin and it actually burned his skin. I however carried on using it and found it working other times, very strange how it works sometimes and not other times! In the end, I found it helpful but it seems it can be a bit harsh for some skin types, or maybe ones skin just needs to get used to it. For me it stung a bit when I first applied it but then my skin got used to it quickly. I think I will buy it again because I hate using the chemical repellants.

It goes on really well and works perfectly. Its not sticky at all. A bit of a strong smell but I use it at night on holidays .
20/04/2016, By Lara
Mosquitoes absolutely love me, and I was excited to try out this repellent because the reviews are excellent. I tried it one night, got bitten once and swopped to tabard in the middle of the night. Decided to try it again - got bitten every where again and once again hunted mozzies and had to revert to using tabard cream in the middle of the night. So, this product does NOT work in my view. Waste of my money. :(

Like it very much, smells great and work well! Thanks
03/02/2016, By Adrienne
This is very effective and smells much better than the commercial products I used to use.
19/03/2015, By Alu
I use this on my son, and not only is it an effective mosquito repellent, his skin doesn react from it. So Im very happy with it.
30/01/2015, By Mika
Haven had bites despite hearing the mozzies all night, every night! And you REALLY only have to use very little. Awesome, Ill be taking this to Thailand to put it through a serious test :)
20/01/2015, By Hanri
I absolutely love this product. It smells divine, is easy to apply and definitely keeps the mosquitoes at bay. Can wait to try more Victorian Garden products.
06/11/2014, By Suzanne
Keeps all the goggas away all night
27/10/2014, By Jo
It works perfectly, smells great, easy to apply and doesn leave a sticky residue like some others do. Love it; its an absolute must for summer and especially for camping trips!
15/10/2013, By Astrid
Dit werk soos
bom! Ruik lekker en boonop nie skadelik!
12/12/2011, By Elisabeth
I absolutely love your website and products. Easy to order and delivery is always prompt even out here. The Victorian Garden Mozzie Muti is a real winner.

I have just come back from honeymoon in Zanzibar, lucky me. Well, we used this and did not get bitten! Superb!
23/11/2011, By Onyay Pheori
My mother is getting ready to go on a month long safari and after just being in South Africa/Mozambique, using it, I highly recommend it. Thank you!
11/10/2011, By Anita
I can recommend this product. It really does work. I am no longer being 'eaten alive' every evening by mossies! I like the smell too.
15/06/2011, By Jane
This product works really well. I tried an experiment the other night and put some on my arms but not my feet - feet were bitten alive, arms nothing!. I do find the smell a little over powering though, although my husband says it smells great.
18/05/2011, By Petro
Werk Fantasties!!!
14/04/2011, By Betsy
Used it the entire mossie season and it works wonderfully!
18/03/2011, By Nadya
I love this stuff...! usually i loath putting insect repellent onto my skin, but this is a real treat - smells great and really works... not only for mozzies but other insects too...
04/03/2011, By Jackie Loubster
The Victorian Garden mosquito repellant is great for keeping the muggies at bay as well, a great product!

Smells nice but caused a rash on my sensitive skin. The Badger Balm is a better option for me.
