Rated 5 out of 5 by bchboy1206 I think it works good!!!
I went in my local woods and had a tick embedded on my leg one on my back and something bite me in the chest that left me burning for a week.
I went out the following day and used the Sawyers and bugs were not an issue at all, nothing!!!
It has a pleasant smell and no burning that DEET products have. I would say it lasted well through my sweating because I was not molested by insects like I normally am. Very satisfied....

I am a mosquito magnet - if there are 50 people in a room, I get bitten with nearly 50 bites. I have used all kinds of repellents over the years, damaging equipment, stinking of DEET. I first used this on a trip to Ecuador's cloud and subtropical forest. While my companions were covered with bites, I for the first time had none. This product surpasses DEET in effectiveness and lasts longer and smells better and does not damage key equipment for a field scientist such as binoculars!

..very nice product, does not smell bad, only a slight lemon or citrus odor...sprayed it on my hands and rubbed on exposed skin....had no more problem from skeeters, no-see-ems, or biting horse flies...some repellents will melt
plastic lure cases or plastic lure box tops,
but his does not seem to bother the plastic...
doesn't leave your skin oily...I have only worn this fishing but intend to try it when I am deer hunting this fall....not sure what it will do to the deer..??
