    Repel-X Lotion is rated 4.7949 out of 5 by 39.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does a great job I tried this on the advice of my friend to keep the bugs out of my horses' ears - just to see if I could avoid using fly masks during the very hot, humid summer weather. My horses are field boarded 24/7, and the insides of their ears would get so crusty and sore from the bugs. Since I started using this just once a day, I have noticed a HUGE difference. All of the crustiness is completely gone and there are absolutely no signs of any bugs in or around their ears. I also use it in place of an ear bonnet when riding. It is absolutely not greasy and does not smell bad. This is a fantastic product and I recommend it to everyone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE Best Product for Face & Ears The only thing that keeps my horse's face and ears clear from pesky flies and mosquitoes. It smells wonderful and is very gentle on the skin.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great Immediate results and my horses don't react from having it applied. Some of the oil based sprays may sting a little but this gets no reaction.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Repel-X Lotion I used this product for the first time in 2014 and was pleased with its effectiveness on my gelding who is extremely sensitive to insects. I used it on the areas recommended by the company and he didn't get any bug bites throughout the summer or fall! Very happy with the results.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't need fly mask anymore! Great stuff! The fly mask made my girl so hot and sweaty on her face. Heard about this and I put a little below her eyes about every 3 days and no fly mask needed!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well We use this on our horses faces and around the ears. Some of our guys don't like fly masks so we use this instead. It works well for us.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I'll stick with spray on a brush I got this because I had been using fly spray applied to a grooming brush to put on my horse's head. I thought this might be more effective and easier. The labeling is contradictory. The description on SmartPak indicates that it's for spot treatment around the eyes, muzzle and ears; but, the small print on the bottle says don't get it anywhere near the eyes and be careful to not get too much near the ears. I put it on carefully, but didn't see any difference between this and fly spray on a brush. But, the next day, when I came out, every spot where I put this was covered in dust and mud and was hard to clean up. I have a flea-bitten grey horse so it may not bother someone on a darker horse. For me, I can't see any reason to use it when other options work as well and don't make a mess to clean up the next day.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from keep bugs at bay I used to use only swat under chins, in ears, etc, now I have gone back to using repel-x lotion. It really seems to be working better and doesn't have any greasy residue.
    Date published: 2013-06-10
    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.
    Date published: 2012-08-14
    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 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 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!
    Date published: 2010-06-02
    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.
