For years I've been told how good Avon Skin So Soft was at combating bugs, namely mosquitoes. I don't think I ever tried it.
This Spring they brought out Bug Guard Plus Expedition SPF( Full name Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus IR3535 Expedition SPF30, whew), a new extra tough version that also includes water resistant sunscreen, vitamin E and is DEET free.
Now I've tried it and yes, it works. It works without any strong chemical smell, seems much less sticky than other types and kept the masses of bugs at bay. My Dad works in the heat outside all day and yes, there are plenty of bugs zipping around. He has gladly been using this too. He's one of the people who always said how good it was.
This year the Northeast has seen one of it's wettest early summer's ever. Thanks to that the mosquito population is even worse. This is one of the products you may not want, but you need.
