Can anyone recommend a water resistant mosquito cream....

..... or mosquito repellant. I intend to go in the water quite a bit in Kenya and was wondering which products were the most suitable.

Is there such a thing as a combined sunblock and anti insect cream that doesnt need a re application every time I take a dip ? Also plug in anti mosquito adapters for your room. Are they effective in Kenya and who sells such a thing ?

Does anyone have any product recommendations available in the UK ?

Thanks in advance

Hi,

Mossies, etc do not tend to be a problem during daytime here at the coast, they tend to come out as the sun goes down so you should be OK with suncream during the day and repellent from dusk onwards through the evening and night

Boots have an own brand water resistant suncream and aftersun which contains insect repellant. The aftersun on it's own wouldn't be enough for going out at night though as it doesn't contain DEET.
