Forever I’ve heard that Avon Skin So Soft deters mosquitoes from biting. I have never tested it . . til yesterday. We’ve never had mosquitoes here and with the recent rains and the garden canopy – huge squash leaves and thick pea vines – the mosquitoes are unbelievable! Before going out yesterday, I greased myself up with Skin So Soft Bath Oil. We do have a bit of a gnat problem here . . not often but when we have it, they are the most aggravating things. I had bought the Skin So Soft to use when the gnats were bothering me and never have used it.
I am happy to report that though mosquitoes were buzzing around my head and the sound had me slapping myself in the face because I didn’t put the oil on my face, I didn’t get one single mosquito bite.
Not sure if it works for all mosquitoes but it sure made my time in the garden yesterday more bearable. Maybe it’s because I’m old but I love the smell of it too.
