I remember it like it was yesterday… growing up, I never left my house to go play without my mom applying Avon’s Skin So Soft Bug Guard products to my skin to protect against bug bites. I remember its smell, the light mist and everything else about it. It totally makes me think of childhood and how much fun I had playing with my friends in the neighborhood.
Now that I am a mom, I try to do the same for Caroline and Carson. Their skin is so sensitive, and I want to protect it as much as possible, so I’ve started using the exact same products my mom relied on. It’s crazy when you think about how smart your parents were when you become a parent, right?!?!
We’ve been SO active this summer break… tons of weekend trips to the lake, early evening swim sessions at the pool, riding bikes around the neighborhood, the list goes on and on. I think we tackled that summer bucket list the best we could!
We began using the Avon’s Skin So Soft Bug Guard Collection earlier this summer [I tossed a few products in my car and some in my carryall tote], and I’ve been impressed with how well it repels insects and combats bug bites, yet is still gentle for kids and adults alike. The entire collection is also Deet free so you can feel good about the sprays, lotions and wipes you’re using on the ones you love most.
Here’s a few details from some of my favorites from the Bug Guard lineup:
- Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus Picaridin Insect Repellent Towelettes | I’ve been keeping these in the car for playdates at the park and when we travel to the zoo. They are easy-to-use wipe-on towelettes that repel mosquitoes for 8 hours and deer ticks for 12 hours [I like touse at dawn or dusk when the bugs are most active] The bag is re-sealable, too!
- Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus Picaridin Aerosol Spray | This aerosol spray is AMAZING!The lightweight mist smells great, is easy to use outside and repels mosquitoes for 6 hours/deer ticks for 7 hours.My girls use this at the lake when we take the dog on walks, and it gives me the peace of mind I need knowing that they are repelling pesky bugs.
- Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus IR3535® Cool ‘N Fabulous™ SPF 30 Lotion Disappearing Color | Ever get that feeling you may have missed a spot?? This disappearing sunscreen lotion will help you eliminate the worry when you apply your kids’ sunscreen because the blue color disappears once it’s rubbed into their skin… genius!!! It also contains built-in bug repellent so it is the optimum two-in-one product for summer
- Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus IR3535® Expedition™ Aerosol Spray SPF 28 | This unscented sunscreen + insect repellent keeps those pests away (mosquitoes for 8 hours and deer ticks for 12 hours) and my kids happy all summer long!
