Avon Skin So Soft is a dry oil body spray that many people swear by for dealing with midges. It isn’t intended for use as insect repellent in the UK but it does actually contain both Citronellol and Limonene which are used as ingredients in many insect repellents.
It’s also a very pleasant product to use – not surprising really given that it is part of the Avon Cosmetics range – and this may be the secret of its success: people don’t mind applying it in copious quantities, whereas more standard insect repellents might be used a little too sparingly.
The reviews from customers praise the spray as being good for mild sunburn, as an after sun nourisher and also to calm dry, frizzy hair!
Avon Skin So Soft is supplied in a 150ml pump action spray.
