I never used live treatments before and this one worked great. It was easy to use and not at all smelly. It got the job done easily and quickly. I'd definitely buy it again if I had to.

Very expensive -- insurance doesn't cover. Easy to use. But, in three weeks lice were back, even after the bedclothes were washed, carpets cleaned, and stuffed animals bagged up for 3 weeks. We were so bummed. We had hoped this would finally end the cycle; it didn't.

Good. I had lice and needed to get rid of it, and this worked. It bangaranged the lice to pieces.

It was very expensive even with good insurance and I used it twice and still found nits. Very unhappy!

Not worth the time or money!

If you comb out 24 hours after the treatment and then again a week later. You reach 100% efficacy. No way to premanantly effect lice removal without combing- sorry.

Easy to apply. But my daughter is Mexican and has lots of hair and it's super thick! I barley had enough to finish maybe make it a little more amount. Other than that her insurance covered it all (320) dollars. And it was easy to wash out!

I will DEF give sklice a five star rating!!! I was prescribed twice, the generic brand of lice shampoo from their doctors, from our insurance. TO NO AVAIL it did NOT work! I was frustrated! Then when I went to the pediatricians I noticed a pamphlet for sklice. Thank goodness, I did. I haggled and felt like I had to make drug deals with my insurance to cover some of it! I paid out of pocket but WORTH the cost!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The lice WERE GONE! Obviously lice medication alone will not rid lice. I kept a schedule of brushing and picking out the lice and nits. However, Sklice is what helped rid my kids of lice. The other stuff didn't even phase the lice! My kids are lice free and have been! I will always recommend this product!

Didn't work at all. It was pointless and a waste of my time.

Very VERY expensive and not effective. We have a doctor in the family and he had us all use this. Six family members. We followed the instructions to a "T". Added the extra expense of washing everything, and dry cleaning the even more stuff, bagged all the toys at once and put them in the garage for a two week stay in below zero weather. We also bought spray for the furniture and rugs. Vacuumn like crazy the furniture the rugs, the toy boxes the stuffed animals were in. We found live lice on both our teenage girls hair the day after the treatment. They did not return to school we kept them home.

Very easy to use! Seems to work well the 2nd time too. *Make sure you throw away your old pillow, fyi. *The lice may still be present but after 2 days you can shampoo your hair again and that should do it. *You can feel it working as you put the lotion on. *I would ask your doctor for one additional refill, in case you get re-infected within one year, you can treat it ASAP!

Just used the SKLICE for the first time after using the useless over the counter meds. It was so much easier to use and there were zero live bugs for the comb thru. I have been dealing with lice with my kids since elementary school and I thought it would all be over in High school..WRONG. Now with all the selfies being taken with friends and putting their heads together its worse than ever. I really hope this does the trick..And my insurance paid 100%

The worst scam ever. It didn't live up to ANY of the claims. I followed the instructions to the letter. Also washed all bed linens, towels, cleaned all upholstery, vacuumed, and bombed my home. I did this TWICE because I was foolish enough to repurchase when the first time failed. I spent $536 on this product . I was able to use your phony coupon once. The one that says "Won't cost a penny over $25". Yeah, I spent $200 for that nonsense. The next go round (because you can only use the phony coupon once) cost $334. I certainly hope that all you fat cats at McKesson are enjoying yourselves. Pray you never get this. I don't know who is the bigger parasite. The lice or the blood suckers from your company My advice to those considering this useless "medicine" .... SAVE YOUR MONEY!!! PS I shaved my head this morning. Now they really are gone.

My daughter had stubborn lice. paid hundreds for a lice salon to remove it twice for it the only come back. also tried home remedies, combed through every other day, did it all. finally was fed up and went to her dr. she prescribed sklice. the ONLY thing that worked and was 100% effective. no harsh chemical smell and does not burn. if your daughter has thick hair ask the dr for two bottles. Saved my life. ditch every other remedy and go for sklice. it kills it all within 10 minutes. it also shows you how little some can be and if your combing through the comb cannot pick up the tinest baby ones. this is why it never goes away. you must kill with the lotion.

Amazing product. I've picked live ones off my kids after treatment with OTC stuff. With this product, my kids were clean right after treatment. And, even two days later!!!

I used this on my 12 year old and she got so sick immediately afterward, and so did I. I didn't wear gloves when I put it on her and we both woke up the next morning with headaches, horrible coughing, stopped up noses, mild fever, fatigue, inability to do anything, etc. Pretty much all the side effects that it says one may get after using. My daughter was feeling perfectly fine before I put it on her and immediately felt sick after rinsing it off her hair. I put her to bed and she was worse the next day and the following two days after that. We both ended up on the couch the entire weekend after using this stuff because it was so toxic and made us feel so sick and unable to do anything, much less even move. It definitely got rid of the bugs, but not all of the nits. I still had to pick a few nits out of her hair the following days after use of the medication, so definitely go through hair daily with a good nit comb (the Terminator comb is the very best). I feel this medication is very toxic and worries me with long term effects that we don't know of yet, especially when using on children. It is very potent, extremely toxic, and is basically poison (a pesticide) you are putting on your child's hair and skin, and could possibly make them very sick for days, as it did us. Is it worth is? Please read the side effects on the pamphlet before use. Not everyone is sensitive, but I guess we are. I personally recommend the pesticide-free stuff called Fairy Tales that comes with the Terminator Nit Comb - best comb out there!! There is a video on youtube on how to use this stuff the correct way and is pretty amazing.
