Last summer, I went on a church mission’s trip to Haiti. Before going, I bought two bottles of Deter Insect Repellent, along with all kinds of other insect repellent products. When we got to our destination, it was obvious we would need as much insect repellent as possible, so we all applied our wristbands, lotions, and sprays. We were sleeping on thin mattresses outside, on the ground, in the open air. I sprayed the Deter on my mattress and all around on the ground, as well as all over me! After the first day without a bite, I took off the repellent wristbands, stopped using the lotions and sprays and used only the Deter and everyone in my group was using Deter spray. This became a ritual for all of us during our stay there. I did not get any bites all week! The last night in Haiti I didn’t apply any Deter and I lost count on how many bites I got! After that, I was sold on Deter! I came home and bought more to have at home.
I would highly recommend Deter Insect Repellent to everyone! It is a great product, it keeps the bugs away, and it has a pleasant fragrance (instead of that bug spray smell). It is now a “must have” on any trips I take!
I only had a small bottle and it ran out a few months before the end of my trip. I used a variety of natural repellants after that, but had to revert to deet because the natural products didn’t work. Now that I’m back in the states I’m ordering more! I definitely recommend Deter.
I applied the therapy to each bite before going to sleep. Upon waking, I took a look at my bites. The inflammation was completely dissipated. They had been reduced to extremely small specks on my skin, hardly noticeable. Also, the itching was completely gone.
I highly recommend this product as after one application I noticed a drastic improvement. The bites were virtually gone
I am sometimes reluctant to use sunscreen when I’m active because I feel like it clogs my pores and makes me sweat more, but I totally didn’t have that problem with this sunscreen. I have very sensitive skin, but my skin was totally fine with Deter, even on my face and neck, which are usually the most sensitive.
It is also rated very well by EWG. I ordered about 10 different types of sunscreens that are rated well by EWG and this is my favorite for non-water-related activities. Save yourself the money I spent testing out a bunch of different sunscreens and just get this one. You will be happy.
