  • I used to wear it whenever we went camping. It worked great and smells better than any DEET product.

  • I've used Skin So Soft for a bug repellant for years. It's just like putting on any other lotion. I've used it for me kids too.

  • ok let me rephrase this WHICH ONE IS BETTER? Have you tried the lotion and does it work too.

  • Neither worked when I tried them, but my MIL swears it does. The one she had is in a spray bottle if that helps with the answer... It was lotion-y like. lol
