Bring On The Bug Spray // Avon Bug Guard

Bring On The Bug Spray // Avon Bug Guard

My husband works upstate every summer, which means I usually wind up there every once in a while to hang out and get a change of scenery. I am so excited to be teaming up with AVON because their Skin So Soft Bug Guard Collection has me covered for all of my outdoor explorations. I may be a city girl at heart, but I’ve always loved the outdoors. Camping, horseback riding, rappelling… sign me up. The last time I went camping was actually with my sister right near Woodstock and besides the bonfireBBQ, our favorite part of the trip was exploring. Ever since then, that’s all I ever want to do, so whenever I head upstate with my husband, I have him drop me off near his work and go for a nice nature walk. I once found this incredible meadow with overgrown weeds, only to be greeted by a swarm of mosquitoes. Needless to say, I got out of there pretty fast, but if only I had been introduced to AVON’s mosquito and insect repellent products sooner, my exploration would have no limits.

AVON’s Skin So Soft Bug Guard was created to protect nature lovers like me from itchy, painful, and potentially harmful bug bites. The Bug Guard comes in many forms, all Deet-Free, and prices start at $14, so there’s definitely something for everyone. My favorite product from the collection is the Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus Picaridin Aerosol Spray since it sprays on easy and repels mosquitoes for 6 hours and deer ticks for 7 hours. The formula uses picardin to repel insects at dawn or dusk when they are most active.

Whenever I’m traveling, I prefer the Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus Picaridin Towelettes. Eight individually wrapped towelettes come in a package, and they repel mosquitoes for 8 hours and deer ticks for 12 hours. They’re super convenient since you can just throw one or two of them into your purse every morning. They’re also mess-free and easy to travel with since the towelettes are one use. The Bug Guard Plus  IR3535® Expedition™ Aerosol Spray is also great since it repels mosquitoes for 8 hours and deer ticks for 12 hours and contains SPF 28, which is super important when you’re hanging out in the sunny outdoors. Lastly, there are also some water resistant options, including the Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus IR3535® Cool ‘N Fabulous™ SPF 30 Lotion Disappearing Color, which goes on blue, but disappears when rubbed into the skin. With so many product options, it’s easy to meet your own application preference, whether it’s a spray or lotion, and incorporate it into your daily summer routine.

Don’t let bugs stop you from exploring. Just pick up some AVON Skin So Soft Bug Guard products, now available on Avon.com or through your local Avon Representative, and enjoy your summer bug-free. Check out Avon.com to find a Representative in your area. What adventures do you have planned this summer?
