And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

    Repel-X Lotion is rated 4.7419 out of 5 by 31.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works and lasts! I've used Repel-X Lotion for a number of years. It lasts about 3 days and is particularly great if applied to the tailhead and belly to prevent gnat bites. I also prefer it for use on the face, as it works well, the horses don't mind the scent, and the container doesn't start leaking like many of the roll-ons.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from love the smell I love the smell of this and I'm sure as a spot treatment on the face and around wounds would be good but as a daily use, no, too expensive that way. I've used it on the underbelly of my horses about three times each using a glove and well, just not totally satisfied with it. Otherwise I would recommend for wounds, etc.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from works well 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good stuff! Was furstrated @ not being able to find this locally. So pleased to be able to add this to my smart pack order. My guy is a bug diva so this lotion makes a great difference when I ride!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! Easy to use under bellies and private parts which are sensitive to ticks. Love the way it goes on.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Haven't Tried It Yet I haven't tried this product yet. I bought it to use at the shows this summer or underneath his belly when he is turned out in the summer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Repel-X Lotion Repel-X Lotion is just a super product. It does not leave a greasy film and really does keep the insects off of those tender areas where I like to use it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best fly repellent out there! I use this product on all of my horses. Just put it on a sponge and wipe it on their belly and face. Works great on fly spots on the belly. This is a must have for sensitive skin horses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Buy I use the Repel X lotion on my mare's face and it works very well. It's also very easy to apply and is reasonably priced.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from favorite for face This lotion works better than any roll on or sponge applicator product, it is gentle, has basically no scent & I like that it has sunscreen it it as well

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent product I have a mare that is very sensitive to the face/horn/deer flies and to the sand gnats in our area. I have tried many fly wipes, sprays and use masks as well. Repel XP is an awesome wipe on fly repellant and has given my mare the much needed relief she has needed from the insects biting her face and ears. she would rub relentlessly to the point of making raw spots on her face seeking relief from the bugs. Now those spots are healing and there is much less rubbing! while it may cost a little more than some wipes; it is well worth it to see a happy itch free bug free horse ! thank you!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from smells nice I really like the fact that this lotion goes on well and you can easily avoid the eyes and nose.Repel-X lotion has a nice smell and is not too bug-spray smelling. Works well for keeping flys/bugs away. Largers sizes would be good too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've used this for years! My gelding would get bug bites around his sheath area. Repel X lotion solved the problem. Also great around the eyes and inside the ears. I love it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Pest Control Repel X lotion really cuts down on the flys, it lasts longer then the traditional sprays. I have a senior horse that gets eaten alive by the flys if I do not take all measures, and the lotion helps protect the areas the flysheet and mask do not cover. It also is really great for riding especially when used around the ears.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tummy Saver With the gnat (no-see-ums) around this time of year, my horses tummy is protected with this product. No other product has worked as well, and I've tried hundreds.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have for me My horse ALWAYS seems to be the one who is in a stall next to a 'fly mask bandit'. EVERY time I go out to see him his fly mask in on the floor of the next stall. (I'm sure my horse is completely innocent of course :-)This lotion gives me a bit of added comfort that the fly's won't drive him crazy as soon as he gets his fly mask ripped off.I also use it before I ride and the fly's stop landing as soon as I put it on. It's not greasy. Overall a great product.
