    It works! It’s better than DEET because it’s organic. AND it’s as good as DEET so why use DEET?
    Of course, when discussing the voracious Nelson Lakes sandflies, one has to include a definition of ‘works’.
    I’ve just done a couple of days’ tramping around Rotoroa where the sandflies are so thick they sound like light rain falling on your tent.
    Being calm, sunny and HOT, 50 ml of Goodbye Sandfly was used over a few days.
    The beauty of this stuff is that even though Rotoroa sandflies won’t be completely repelled by anything, the several bites I did receive were immediately dealt to in the sense that they were never itchy, my skin didn’t react other than to show wee red dots where the more suicidal bities had made a landing.
    Regular re-applications were necessary but proceed with confidence! It works!

    After working on the beach for years, this is the only product I found that keeps away the midges and sandflies. Just awesome, thanks so much!

    I bought Goodbye Sandfly when I visited NZ from the U.S., when we went down to the water the bugs were eating everyone else alive, you could actually see the blood spots on people! The bugs didn’t touch my husband and I, it was incredible! I’m so happy I found a place I can purchase this online, not only does it work but it smells fresh and natural. I even wear it to bed on occasion when I know we have mosquitos in the house. I love this product, its hands down the best repellent I’ve ever used. I’ll happily be a (bite free) customer for life 🙂

    This was my first acquaintance with your product, dealing with the sandflies, and with deterring other insects. It was my favorite, then, perhaps ten years ago, and remains the same preference today. Also helps immediately with allergic condition itchiness of skin.

    Goodbye Sandfly…..what an awesome product!! We’ve used this for years and passed on to many who have been wonderfully surprised by the effectiveness. We’ve used it as a really effective repellant, and soother if bitten, for sandfly and mozzie bites, as well as a soother for congestion (really awesome oils to alleviate stuffy noses too!!), as well as seasonally dry, itchy skin….fantastic ingredients with many uses!! The smell is so fresh and can be used on children and adults alike. A great product, that’s natural (kids can apply it themselves without you worrying about harsh ingredients), good for your skin and the well being of you and the environment. Well done Becky!!

    This is such a good product. It is the first thing to go in the bag if we are travelling anywhere there are likely to be any type of sandfly. We have used this since it’s beginnings and it has proved itself time and again in places like Milford Sound and Karanga West coast NZ. No chemicals also which is a big plus…

  7. Hanne

    Couldn’t live in Karamea without. And it makes having visitors easier. Thank you and all the best

    Goodbye Sandfly lives up to its promises! It’s an honest product and it’s marketed in an enlightened way. It’s gratifying to see this fledgling company take off and grow and to realize that it’s because they’ve “built a better mousetrap”, as my countryman Benjamin Franklin once said. What could be better than a natural product which is pleasant to use and does the job well. Congratulations on your success – well deserved.

    As a regular visitor to your wonderful countryside, I often was eaten by sandfly or Mozzies.I swell up hugely and even my joints ache but using Goodbye Sandfly definitely lessens my bites and removes the itch/swelling.Perfect to carry in your pocket and kind to our planet

    I have been using goodbye sandfly from its early days. I love that its natural and a local product. I keep a large bottle in the car, a small one in my day pack and 1 at work. Great product also soothes the itches which is great.

  11. Janene

    Goodbye Sandfly is the best natural bug repellent on the market, it really works, even on the massive West Coast and Fiordland sandflies! It is the safest option for people who don’t want to use chemical repellants, especially for children or if you have sensitive skin. I don’t go bush without it!

  12. Suzanne Rain

    Love this product. Have used it for everything from mosquito repellent – to ashy legs oil – to nit treatment (when I couldn’t get out to get some Goodbye Nits) and a few more uses along the way. The perfect size to to have on hand for when you need it…and I can’t believe it never leaks!

  13. Dianne Evans

    I love Goodbye Sandfly – it is perfect as a Repellent and a Soother for when you get caught out! Takes away the inflammation and itch straight away. Thanks Becky for creating this wonderful natural product!

  14. Carolyn Cashman

    We reach for SANDFLY at the first mosquito sighting. Never disappoints. Friends say it allows them to be outdoors when that had become difficult for them.

  15. Marijke

    I have used Goodbye Sandfly for years and have recommended it to lots of other people (and given it as little presents!) I love the smell, the fact that it’s natural and has no chemicals (that’s a BIG one for me) and nourishes your skin at the same time as protect you from sandflies and mosquitoes.
