For Head Lice: “Wow. It worked great. So easy to use and my kids hair looked and smelled awesome afterward. For me it was worth the copay on my insurance. Other moms I talked to had such a hard time with Nits. I'm so glad I called the doc!”
For Head Lice: “Do not use this medication on your children or anyone! My child lost all of her hair and my other daughter lost half of her hair! Scabbing, scores! This product is very dangerous and should be pulled off the market! This damaged a little girls life that will never recover a year later she still has almost no hair!”
For Head Lice: “After finding live lice in my 10 yr old daughters hair, I immediately went to buy an OTC product. Treated hair that evening & 2x daily I would painstakingly go through her hair removing nits. 4 days later, found live lice (and yes, I followed the directions to the tee!). I retreated, but the next day my other daughter was scratching, she had lice too! I did same treatment for her as well, but when I found that I had them as well, I called their pediatrician and that's where Sklice came into the picture. He not only prescribed treatments for us, but for my two sons and husband as well. One treatment and POOF! No more lice!!! No more hrs spent removing nits!! (Use $25 coupon on Sklice website!)”
For Head Lice: “After dealing with lice for over a year (my daughter has very long black hair), numerous OTC treatments, as well as prescription treatments, nothing worked. I researched once again and came to the Sklice website, called my doctor and had a prescription in 3 days. One Time, 10 minutes and VIOLA! No more lice, I am thankful that science is getting better at making a permanent solution to this hideous problem. I recommend it to anyone who has been dealing with lice.”
For Head Lice: “My daughter who has extremely long think hair kept getting head lice. I treated her 2 previous times the typical way. OTC meds washing scrubbing boiling brushes. But she kept getting them. The 3rd time was it!! I looked online and found sklice. It was hard to find as most pharmacies around me don't carry it. I drove in a snow storm 40 minutes away to get it!! I applied it and haven't had a problem since...that was 4 years ago!”
For Head Lice: “Fought these suckers for a year on and off with my kids. I tried vinegar and salt, coca cola, olive oil, dollar store brand, rid and an expensive moose..kept coming back so I got so aggrevated and took them to doc he prescribed sklice and DONE..BOOM..NOTTA BUG ANYWHERE..finally peace..thank you sklice..one and done”
For Head Lice: “I've only had lice one other time and I was a kid and don't really remember the pain of getting rid of it (although my mom will gladly remind me). This treatment was super simple. I used it on myself. I did choose to use the lice combs after I used this product (even though I didn't need to). Even though the treatment was only 10 mins, all I combed out were dead bugs. It was very easy to use and smelled good. My hair was silky and shiney after using it.”

For Head Lice: “One of my kids had magical powers to attract lice every year since like clockwork. (Yay for us, don't be jealous.) So the first time I did the OTC kit, laundry, vacuuming the mattresses etc. A year later I did the same but didn't get all of the nits. Those buggers are hard to find! Then a mom friend told me how Sklice paralyzes the nits and they CAN'T HATCH, so if I missed some they couldn't hatch anyway. So YES after the one ten-minute treatment my kid still had nits in her hair, but they never hatched and I need picked them out as I found them without the anxiety of "what if I miss one?" Third time she got lice I went straight to pediatrician for Sklice and that took care of it.”
For Head Lice: “I never wrote reviews on products but for the sake of helping others I will tell you that sklice did work for us and our head lice. It is not abnormal to still be picking out eggs/nits daily for up to 2 weeks post treatment. As long as you’re not still finding several every day. The nits I was seeing during combing a week after treatment would fall right out because they were dead and no longer sticking to the hair. That is what you WANT to see after treatment. I was vigilant and devoted to the combing process every night for two weeks afterwards. I bought tea tree shampoo and conditioner to use from here on out. Also coconut oil is a great detangler and is also a natural repellant. If you follow this treatment exactly the way it’s supposed to be done and you don’t fall behind on combing, it should be all gone in a week. While this is a huge nuisance and it’s terribly time consuming and gross, it is harmless and they do not transmit disease.”
For Head Lice: “I have been battling head lice with my 2 daughters for years and years and years. I have tried EVERYTHING. This last battle which has lasted over a year had me at my wits end. Shaving was next. I finally had my doc phone in Sklice. BEST STUFF EVER EVER EVER!!!! You have saved my sanity and my beautiful girls hair.”
For Head Lice: “I used Sklice on my daughter as per the doctor's recommendation to get rid if nits. I was happy at first since it was only a 10 minute treatment. I even saw the dead nits dropping out of her hair as I used a brush to blow dry her hair! Two weeks later the nits were back!!!! The product said it wasn't necessary to comb out nits, so I didn't! Big mistake! I ended up taking her to a professional place that deals with Lice and was told ALL NITS MUST BE COMBED OUT DEAD OR ALIVE! The product was misleading. Exhausted and stressed out over this.”
For Head Lice: “After three treatments of OTC failures I used Sklice. I got a special brush from beauty supply store used for coloring hair, $1.29 and separated hair like a beautician does to apply product to small areas from scalp to ends. Started at the base of neck and moved upwards to top and front of head. Took me over 2 hours to apply. Then put a shower cap on for 45 minutes. Used nit comb to comb out the same way I applied. I found adults & tons of nits. Kept cleaning nit comb with baby wipes in ziplock bag for safe disposal. Total success. After days I keep searching her hair and finding nothing. My cost was initially $351.52 minus online coupon and my insurance resulted in a final out of pocket expense of $10.00. Great product.”
For Head Lice: “I have been dealing with my daughter having lice through this past school year. The hours spent on removing the bugs was too much. I'm so glad the drug rep came to my workplace and introduced this magical lotion. My daughter is now bug free and happy. Very satisfied!”
For Head Lice: “Two girls and I got it from school - UGH. Did Nix for 10 minutes (per package) and it didn't work. Called nurse. Did Nix again same day for 30 minutes. Two days later they appear again, so I called doctor. Did Nix again for 2.5 hours (was told it never failed). 2.5 days later they appear again, so I called my other doctor. Did Sklice for 10 minutes (per package) and we are now entering day 7 after Sklice treatment and we are looking good. I have been REALLY vigilant about looking for nits, too. We check everyone very well each morning - I do NOT want this back! What a nightmare. I've changed the beds every day for 12 days straight to help ensure no occurrence and bagged anything that wasn't nailed down. Expensive, but worth it.”
For Head Lice: “Picked up lice staying at a friends house in North Carolina. She didn't tell me her daughter was having trouble with lice every 4 months before I visited or else I would have stayed at a hotel. Anyway, I have tried just about every over the counter product and nothing worked. Read all the directions & followed the directions exactly. Then I tried home remedies. Nothing worked. I bought Sklice at $150. with insurance. It doesn't work. I applied it to dry hair, used the entire tube, worked it in, all hair covered, left it on 10 min. as directed, washed it out and combed out the bugs and nits. The next day, I still have live lice. It's now 2 days later and basically it didn't work. It did kill some but not all. Now what? Such a nightmare.”
For Head Lice: “"Treated daughter as directed with Sklice, and 5 days later, live lice reappeared. Disappointed to say the least after washing bedding, putting away stuffed animals, etc. Any health care provider I talked to about the re-occurrence said that you MUST comb out the nits even though the Sklice directions and website advertise that no combing is needed. Feel greatly misled." But that was not the problem because in addition I did nit comb every time. This has been the 4th time doing this at $200 a treatment(Yes one time use per tube) wow is SkyLice getting over on us. Seems Skylice owes me some money back. It does not work....”
For Head Lice: “I have had to use Sklice twice now on my 7yr old daughter and it works like a charm!!! I will never buy OTC options AGAIN!!! thank you Sklice, you make having these little buggers a breeze to get rid of!!! Luv, Luv, Luv!!!”
For Head Lice: “It worked! My hair is waist length. I did have a friend comb through my hair one time after treatment with an nit comb, but that's it. I used Sklice on my granddaughter who had lice to begin with and gave it to me. I did comb and pick all the nits out, but I never found a live bug after using Sklice. It's been about 2-3 weeks now. Still bug and nit free! Wish I had used this first!!”
For Head Lice: “100% pleased with Sklice. When it was time to wash out, dead bugs came out and a week later haven't seen anything else. Very Sticky just like glue, so start at the scalp! I also combed though bc its so sticky to ensure it got everywhere.”
For Head Lice: “Get Sklice. Do not stop, call your Dr and go straight to the pharmacy. This magical lotion is totally miraculous!! No side effects- and it was gentle for 6 months old. I used on my 2 year old. Seriously, I honestly would have cut my girls hair without it. This is the second time we've used it and it kills bugs AND nits. I comb all the nits out after to be 100% sure of no reoccurrence, but I think it works as is. It is very expensive though, so use the Sklice coupon on the website and its cheaper. You won't regret it. (Why don't more parents know about this? Sanofi you need to be running advertising on this! Retarget lice searches!)”
For Head Lice: “One of my students has had chronic lice last school year and again this school year. I have provided OTC lice shampoo several times and have sent child home weekly with live head lice. Each time child is sent home, child has returned with no live head lice but still having nits. (Our school is not a no nit school.) Each week the child would have live lice again and have to be sent home. I found the article about the FDA releasing Sklice and printed the information for the parent of the student with chronic lice. The student came to me yesterday and I found dead lice in child's hair. I discussed this with the child's mother who said she used the Sklice as directed. So far, so wonderful!”
For Head Lice: “After speaking with the doctor, they advised that I could comb out the nits after using this product, but that both had used it with success and no comb. Instructions for the product say leave in for at least 10 minutes. I stuck my seven-year-old naked in the bathroom and let him play in an empty bathtub with some plastic toys after completely covering his head in the product. After the hour, I washed his head thoroughly with Ivory bar soap. I then proceeded to vacuum all of the floors, strip and wash all of the bedding in the entire house, all of the towels, and all of the clothes that weren't in the dresser. Spray the couches liberally with Lysol (enough that they are damp). Every single stuffed animal also went through. No more lice!”
For Head Lice: “I have 4 kids and all of them had lice. My babies were miserable. Sklice was easy to use, and by the time I got the medicine in each of their hair, it was time to start washing out. Made this momma happy and my kids as well! Thank you Sklice!”
For Head Lice: “My youngest daughter came down with lice 3 yrs ago from my sitter's daughter. Needless to say by the time I found out, my other daughter and myself had it too. Pediatrician advised to try OT counter drugs 3 times first. After spending over $500, got prescription for Sklice (not covered on insurance then). It cleared up the first try. Best product & worth $300 paid. I though was leary and left some items (stuff animals to pillows) in bags for over a year. Now 3 years later, and once again youngest daughter as caught as she will not wear her hair up due to sensory issues. Had doctor to prescribe without trying anything else. With coupon this time paid $10 instead of $59 a tube (my co-pay)! Now praying for good results again.”
