The pyrethrin acts as a bite inhibitor, discouraging actual biting insects including mosquitoes. Each application of Expedition 50+ will last for up to 10 hours. Re-application may be required in areas with high temperature and humidity.

DEET is proven to be the best repellent against mosquitoes available. This comes in different strengths and the higher the percentage, the more effective it is and the longer it lasts. The most popular strength is 50% DEET but we recommend you get one with a bite inhibitor (PLUS+)

I've used this product before and think it's great. I'm prone to mosquito bites but hardly had any in Mexico I'm pleased to say. I find the most effective way to use it is spray it in your hand first and then apply, less waste that way as well.

Nice scent. We still got a few small bites on legs and back but would buy again as seems to protect against most. We used it in France.

Used for years. Deet appears to be the only effective mosi repellant. Screw top container means you can check quantity in bottle before you travel (not just shake the can and guess)

I used to work for the Masta Travel Clinic where we sold this product. I can get eaten to death by mosquitoes but since using this repellent with Deet they keep well away from me. My boys use it when they go football training in the summer. I wouldn't go on holiday without it.

I think this is a great product. I used it in India and although it wasn't really mosquito season anyway, I was not bitten once by anything. The product smells OK after it is on and rubbed in (I wore it over sunscreen and or lotion). The only reason that I have not given it a five star is that I found it difficult to spray. The can needs to be kept upright which is difficult to do when spraying the backs of your legs and ankles. Also, the spray nozzle is white in a clear background and it is difficult to see where you are pointing it....so I didn't always hit the target and wasted the product. I am keen to try it in Spain, where I was bitten to death last year.

I have used this for many years and it protects me extremely well. I only get bitten if I forget to use it. Also good for spraying on caravan curtains when on holiday in europe.

Spent two weeks in Thailand. Took day trips to rural areas and only got bitten once or twice but my girlfriend got bitten a few times. Highly recommended in general. 1.5 bottles lasted two weeks for two people.

Did a lot of research on this after contracting Dengue in 2010. I travel to Brazil every year and used to come home with at least 20 bites on each leg. I started using this and now come home with just one or two, thankfully no more Dengue. The only downside is, that when you put it on it makes you feel dirty, if you accidentally brush against a plastic shopping bag, the ink will come off on you leg so its very powerful. One tip I can give is, once you have covered yourself get a small cloth and spray it onto the cloth and keep it in a small plastic bag in your pocket, that way you can touch up as you go.

Fantastic product. First time bite free on holiday and one bottle lasted 2 weeks. Very happy, thank you!

I have been using this for years and it is the only one that works for me everytime.

First time using this product. Usually experience terrible bites with blisters which become infected. Currently in Cambodia, only 2nd day, but so far no bites. Using it after applying sunscreen in the morning and again late afternoon with top up before bed.

EXCELLENT PRODUCT - BEEN TO THE CARIBBEAN - NO BITES

very effective repellent.
May 29, 2017
I have used this for years. It is very effective as mosquitoes love me. I have used it all over the world and wouldn't use anything else.
March 12, 2017
This is the best insect repellent I have found. I am highly allergic to mosquito bites and have never been bitten since using this. It also has a much nicer smell than anything else I have used in the past, definitely recommend it!

Excellent product works well.

Very quick & efficient service & no postage - amazing - as is the product

I've waited until I returned from holiday to review. Last year in Greece I was badly bitten by mosquitoes and suffered a bad reaction. Mosquitoes in Europe seem to be becoming more vicious and are out during the day as well as the evening. Previously I've used non-Deet repellents which have not protected me, so this time went for the Deet 50+. I can report that I wasn't bitten at all (Portugal this time) and was amazed that the repellent smelled pleasant - of lime oil. However it still is lethal when it comes into contact with painted surfaces, nail varnish etc. - The price you must pay for not getting bitten! Good, prompt delivery.

Excellent service and unbelievably fast delivery. Great company, used twice and both times I'm very happy with them and their products. The Deet 50 worked very well in Thailand.
March 01, 2016
This product is excellent. Eight of us recently used it is Antigua and none of us got bitten. It is so easy to apply and smells very pleasant. Before placing the order I phoned customer service for advice on which product would suit our needs best and they were brilliant as well!
March 18, 2016
I was quite afraid this will be a chemical weird smelling liquid, but I was actually nicely surprised! It worked quite well (just make sure you really apply it everywhere on your exposed skin) and lasted longer than expected. Worth the price!

Thanks so much for the 50+ deet insect repellent. Had ordered this product form you before and was very impressed as we do long haul holidays twice a year and have just more for our holiday to Aruba in a weeks time. Very quick and efficient service and delivery

My wife and I have just come back from Thailand and we used your product everyday and we never got bitten once. An excellent product and we have told our son and his family and they have now bought some.

It works. Excellent product if you don't want to be bitten, Malaria isn't the only problem. We have used it for years. Applying DEET first thing before dressing and allowing it to dry helps to prevent well known problems due to contact with clothing etc.

Ages ago, I used a roll-on version in Uganda, and was not bitten. It's certainly good to have an alternative to a spray. I've just been on a photographic workshop in the Camargue. The organisers explained that DEET is corrosive, and can remove the white legends from the backs of Nikon cameras, if you have DEET on your hands. Unfortunately, they only offered this explanation after we'd arrived! If I'd known before hand, I'd have gone for either the Sensitive or the Natural sprays instead of DEET.

I used to be badly affected by mosquito bites but have used Expedition for more than 10 years now and since then have only had the occasional bite which has not been severe even in Borneo. You do need to be careful when applying to your face and also wash your hands thoroughly afterwards but I never go on holiday without it now.
June 09, 2015
I find this product is excellent for deterring the biting insects. The only reason I have given this product 3 stars is because the pump was not easy to work.
August 03, 2015
I took this with me on a recent trip to Thailand, I never noticed a lot of difference in using this stuff if I'm honest but I used a couple of the other items available through Life systems too and maybe they did help a bit, but I found the clicker to be the best form of relief.

I bought this for our holiday in Aruba/Caribbean. We found in June we didn't need to use it. Unexpectedly we also went to Menorca in August. Thank goodness for the spray. I'm sure without it we would have been bitten so much more. I escaped with two & my husband one. Would definitely recommend this spray.

Have used for many years. Not greasy when applied and very effective against mozzies.
January 19, 2019
Excellent product. We have used this for many years. Like the pump action container as opposed to aerosol.
March 27, 2019
Not yet used, but seems fine - arrived on time and well packaged. Will be using it in Cuba soon. Reading the reviews, I have every confidence that it will be OK.
