May 15, 2021 – Spring has spung, and Summer is on the way! The weather is nice enough to spend time outdoors during the day and evening; People are enjoying outdoor dining, barbecues, picnics, swimming, fishing, camping and hiking.
When I told a friend to take her family camping (I had just come back from a fun camping trip), the first thing she said was, “No. I don’t like bugs!“
I replied, “You can camp in the winter instead, or you can use [Avon Skin So Soft] Bug Guard!”
No one has to skip out on the outdoor fun or suffer through itchy insect bites. Avon Skin So Soft Bug Guard lives up to its promise while being DEET-free.
Which Biting Insects Does Avon Skin So Soft Bug Guard Repel?
Bug Guard repels a broad range of biting insects, including:

Why Is It Important That Avon Skin So Soft Bug Guard is DEET-Free?
|Avon Skin So Soft Bug Guard||Other Insect Repellents With DEET|

|Bug Guard Plus IR3535 Expedition and Bug Guard Plus Picaridin repels mosquitos for 8 hours and ticks for 10 hours||Low concentration of DEET repels bugs for 1-2 hours. Requires higher DEET concentration to repel bugs longer.|
|Bug Guard Plus IR3535 safely includes bug repellent AND sunscreen (SPF 28/30)||Products containing DEET and sunscreen should not be used, because the sunscreen increases DEET absorption through the skin|
