Skin So Soft

I was stocking up on my favorite sunscreen/insect repellant and I came across this bit of information regarding Avon's Skin-So-Soft and all of it's many uses. It removes chewing gum from hair and gets out ring around the collar and repels bugs all at the same time? Who knew? Now that is a product I can get behind. I was never a fan of the stuff, until vacationing in Hilton Head, SC years ago and they sold the stuff EVERYWHERE as a bug repellant. It seems to do the job, so Avon has now marketed it as an insect repellant. I love that it now has sunscreen and can do double duty against that nasty West Nile Virus, plus it is DEET free, big plus. It's a good thing.

P.S. I do NOT work for AVON.

The truth is out... you are a closet Avon Lady! This is great protection against sea lice, also (yep,that lovely South Florida menace)

I stopped using it years ago because I just couldn't stand the scent. Has it changed? Can you get unscented? I'd be willing to try it again...if only the smell was different!

there is one other scent, but I don't know what it is called. the original scent IS rather stinky though, I only put it on my kids, so it isn't half bad that way.

I have used this ever since you told me about it. I love it! (and I think it smells like cantaloupe- which is much better than the smell you get from the other sprays and stuff.)

yes- oprah just hs dr. oz on this week and he talked about this very thing (or is that what your link was going to say?) glad I remembered it correctly when I told someone about it

Wow! I just stumbled across your site. I love this stuff for my kids. It works great down here in humid Houston, TX.
Also, my 3 year old daughter loves Max and Ruby...
