  Bug Guard, Loved by Families, Not by Bugs

Time spent outdoors for work or fun often means that you are sharing your environment with other creatures, and sometimes those creatures can not only be annoying, they could even be dangerous. In the case of pesky insects Avon has you covered with our full family of Bug Guard Plus Insect Repellents. Our Deet-Free formulas are gentle on skin, yet tough on bugs.

How to choose what to use

• Reapply after 80 minutes in the water or after excessive perspiration or prolonged activity

Gentle Breeze SPF30 Lotion had a light fresh scent

The website InsectCop did a very thorough review of the Bug Guard Plus Lotion and found it to be “one of the best insect repellent lotions out there”

For Hiking and Camping for extended periods of time

Bug Guard Plus IR3535 Expedition plus SPF

BENEFITS 
• Repels mosquitoes that may transmit West Nile virus for 8 hours

• Provides SPF 28 or SPF 30 protection
• Does not need to be washed off when returning from the outdoors
• DEET-free

TO USE 
• Apply evenly before sun and insect exposure. An adult must apply this product to children under 10. 
• Ask a doctor before using on children under 6 months of age
• For continued protection from mosquitoes, gnats, no-seeums, sand flies and biting midges, reapply after 8 hours
• For continued protection from deer ticks, reapply after 6 hours and from black flies, reapply after 3 hours

Spending evenings at parks, parties, barbecues and other outdoor events

enjoy every sunset for dawn and dusk when mosquitoes are most active
Bug Guard plus Picaridin sprays and wipes
Bug Guard Plus Picaridin

BENEFITS 
• Repels a broad spectrum of biting insects (mosquitoes, deer ticks, gnats, no-seeums, sand flies and biting midges)

• Repels deer ticks that may transmit Lyme Disease 
• Needs to be washed off when coming in from the outdoors
• DEET-free
• Oil-free 
• Dermatologist tested 

Available in Pump Spray, Aerosol Spray or Towelettes. My family likes the towelettes because they are handy to stash in tote bags and glove boxes for those unexpected outings that require an insect repellent. They’re also great for travel since there are no liquids that can leak, or aerosol cans that can’t be taken on flights.

TO USE 
• Hold container 6 to 8 inches from skin and spray with a slow sweeping motion, liberally and evenly. Do not spray in enclosed areas. Do not apply under clothing, on cuts, wounds, freshly shaved, excessively sunburned, or irritated skin
• Ask a doctor before using on children under 6 months of age
• For protection from gnats, no-seeums, sand flies and biting midges, reapply after 6 hours. For mosquitoes reapply after 8 hours
• For black flies reapply after 3 hours 
• Do not exceed 2 applications per day

Read and follow label directions and precautions.

What about Skin So Soft Bath Oil?

“While we know that many consumers have turned to Skin So Soft Bath Oil, the product is actually not intended to repel mosquitoes or sold for that purpose, and is not approved by the EPA as a repellent,” Avon told Consumer Reports. Jun 27, 2017

Our full collection of Skin So Soft bath oils make a wonderful addition to your shower routine for moisturizing skin and leaving it soft, it should never be depended on for protection from mosquitoes or any other insects.
