Haven't heard of that one, but we take jungle formula - tropical strength. About £9 in boots or superdrug but £2.99 in Savers.

Off is a product I grew up using in America. In the 11 years I have lived in the UK, I have only been able to find it on eBay or Amazon. I have always picked it up when 'home' as it is not readily available in the UK. With that said, my mom always sprayed Avon's Skin So Soft on us and it almost always worked. I have bought some for our trip next week to Sharm.

You can buy OFF made by Johnson and Johnson on Amazon but it's cheaper to buy it when you get there from any pharmacy. If you are prone to mozzie bites, a DEET based repellent such as OFF is the only thing that is truly effective.

For years I used Supedrugs own brand buzz-off, daft name but it certainly worked for me. Not available now but I've found Mosi Guard to be a good replacement. Only found it on Amazon tho'. I find the stick type easier to apply and it's long lasting. Good luck.
