This is a helpful product for ears and face. Use it every year.

Not so good
I bought this based on the good recommendations. Well, here in the muggy southeast we need something much stronger. This product is very runny and ineffective after about an hour.
Went back to Endure, which has a bit more staying power.

Kept the Flies Off!
Just finished saddling up for a late afternoon ride, as the sun starts to set and the flies ATTACK! I had sprayed my mare down a few times anticipating flies, but they we out with a vengance that afternoon! Out of desperation to get some relief from the flies AND a ride in, I grabbed the Repel-X Lotion and just started rubbing it on her. The flies vanished, not just let off, but vanished. We were able to have a pleasant ride and when I got back to the barn, everyone asked how I was able to stay out so long with all the flies!
The lotion is light, water-based without a heavy odor and lasts for quite a while, I'd say day or two. Works well on legs during fly season to help with stomping. Doesn't leave a greasy residue on your horse or attract dirt. Washes off easily. You only need a small amount in spot areas, so the small bottle will last awhile. Not as convenient as a spray, but it works if your horse is covered in flies! Worth taking the time to open the cap and rub it on legs, face, underbelly areas, anywhere!

I really like this product. It is very usful in keeping flies away from my horses eyes when riding, and also after I remove their masks in the evening, during those last few minutes before the sun sets. It also has a pleasant smell.

LOVE this stuff
I am skeptical of most fly repellents actually doing anything, but Repel-X Lotion does and it works great. I use it as a spot treatment on ears, bellies, chests, and anywhere else flies are really eating. It has a light, pleasant scent, spreads smoothly and leaves minimal if any residue, seems mild enough for sensitive horses, and keeps flies from biting for several days. A bottle also goes a long way; I only need one or two per horse for an entire fly season. Best spot-treatment on the market for flies that I have found.

My horse loves this
I put this on my horse's face as he's quite a diva about bugs flying around his eyes and ears, and it truly works wonders. I apply it about twice a week, as with all the sweating and bathing that goes on in Florida, it really only works for about three solid days. After those three days the bugs start to come creeping back. Definitely worth the purchase, and I will keep buying this for him when this bottle runs out.
