No. This product is for personal use only. For your knowledge, this product contains DEET which is a known plasticizer. – Amber, SC Johnson Consumer Care

Horrible doesn't work.!
I got the OFF! active sweat resistant and let me tell you it's HORRIBLE.!! I'm very upset. I still get bitten badly by mosquitoes when I use this product. I have to constantly reapply and I still get bit. Maybe there not enough DEET I don't know but it definitely didn't and doesn't work for me and my family.

I'm so sorry to hear our repellant didn't perform as we'd expect. Many factors can affect the duration of repellency, so as soon as mosquitoes begin to land on the skin, we recommend reapplying your repellant to ensure maximum protection. We always want you to enjoy your time spent outdoors, so we'd appreciate the chance to talk with you more about your experience. So we can chat, please give us a call at 1-800-558-5252 (weekdays from 8 AM to 5 PM CT). Your reference number is 020182113A. - Skye, SC Johnson Consumer Care

I’ve been using OFF products for years now and for the most part they all work fairly well in my experience - this one is no different. I got it because it is ACTIVE and sweat resistant (to a degree). I use it mainly when I mow the lawn to keep the bugs away. Mosquitoes do love me and I always get bitten no matter what. However this does help minimize their presence around me in the yard. It’s not perfect as with most insect repellents they don’t all work 100%, but as long as it minimizes the problem, I’m happy! I’ve also used this while fishing on a lake and it also seemed to help minimize the bug population around me. It sprays on evenly and even sprays upside down! It has a slightly more pleasant smell compared to other bug sprays and it’s sweat resistant which is a plus. It says that it repels: mosquitoes, gnats, various biting flies, ticks, chiggers, and fleas. I spray it on my skin and clothing to cover all areas that bugs can land on and bother me. Overall, I’m happy with this spray as it helps minimize my constant outdoor grief with bugs especially mosquitoes!

This OFF "Active" Insect Repellent Aerosol Spray really met my expectations. It works great as a repellent and is designed to work even during activity due to its sweat resistance. I have used it a couple of times when mowing the lawn and it did great at repelling mosquitoes even I was covered in sweat working at a temperature of 85F. The bottle sprays well even when up-side-down so it's easy to spray your legs while standing up. When compared to the "Smooth & Dry" the repellent really lasts longer during activity and the bottle contains 50% more product (6 oz.) versus (4 oz.). When you spray it feels more "liquidy" though.

This insect repellent bills itself as “Active” and “Sweat Resistant”. It has a pleasant mild citrus aroma. It’s not oily or sticky when sprayed on your arm or leg. The spray container works in any position, even with the nozzle below the body. It seems to be effective in repelling mosquitoes, the most bothersome insects we have. It does not repel the annoying gnats that fly near your eyes, but I don’t thank that anything repels them — at least they don’t bite. Off repellant takes some washing, nearly scrubbing with a washcloth, to remove from my arm, so I can believe that it is sweat resistant. Spraying Off onto outer clothing is also effective as a repellant says the label. The orange color of the container is easy to spot in the closet or in a picnic basket. The spray button is recessed so that it’s not likely to be depressed accidentally while in your daypack or picnic basket. The 15% DEET ingredient is acknowledged to be the most effective mosquito repellant. The label says that it repels ticks, and this could be a major benefit, for Lyme disease and other tick-borne diseases are serious. This is a handy, functional and effective insect repellant.

Living in North Florida a person tends to be outside a lot. In the rivers fishing or kayaking I need a bug spay that stays on while I enjoy the warm weather. Seems like it repeals sand fleas too which torment me when there isn't a breeze. the spray comes out nice and even. It does spray upside down covers all your exposed skin. it also reads it is sweat resistant which it is, that super out in this heat.

I was happy with the results from using this product. I don’t usually use mosquito repellent but I was going to be out all day/night and the mosquitos and bugs seem to have been especially thick this year. I did not get bit and others I was with who did not use repellent did. It was a hot day and even with sweating, it kept the bugs off. The product is easy to apply as the can sprays upside down or right side up. The smell is citrus type scent and it is fairly strong. I’ll be keeping a can of this around for when we are going to be outside.

This is my savior,
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is my savior, I am a big meal for the mosquitos but this repellent is effective to avoid them, there are a lot of trees in my area so the mosquitos are around all the time.
