Mosquito Repellant

Heading to Bali and Lombok for 2 weeks end July / start August, can anyone recommend a good mosquito repellant (that can be purchased in UK or Ireland) and what % DEET should it contain.?

We use Bushmans. I am not sure if you can get it in UK. You can get up to 80% deet in Australia. We took that, along with 40%. I found the 80% to be a little too strong - and we were there in December.

We found the 40% to be fine.

I have responded on your duplicate post on the Lombok forum tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowTopic-g297733-i9237-k6… .

You can buy Bushmans repellent on Amazon in the UK if you have £16 to spare, Jungle Formula and Boots Repel is half the price.

Bushmans have a 20% , 40% and 80% DEET content.

The 20% one has a sunblock in it as well.

I would not use the 80% one, far too strong.
