Sponsored Post: Avon Skin So Soft Bug Guard Collection


Welcome to your new home this summer.

Kind of an extreme example, but you get the idea.

On the Today Show this morning, we found out that this summer is going to be the worst mosquito-season yet. To which I say… not cool. But Avon‘s got my back with their Skin So Soft Bug Guard essentials, so I can at least prepare to be eaten alive when I’m spending time outside of the concrete jungle in LA, Tucson, Vancouver and Hawaii this summer. The third annual Summer of Glamber begins in earnest on June 7th!

Avon Skin So Soft products are DEET-free and suitable for everyone. They contain one of two EPA-registered active ingredients, IR3535® or Picaridin. The entire collection includes:

Bug Guard Plus IR3535® Expedition ™ SPF 30 ($14-$16) – Get protection from the sun and insects  in one product–available in an aerosol and a pump.

Bug Guard Plus Picaridin ($14-$16) – Great for protection during dusk and dawn, which is when mosquitoes are more active. It also repels deer ticks that may transmit Lyme disease and mosquitoes that may carry West Nile virus. Available as an aerosol spray, pump spray and travel-friendly towelettes.

Bug Guard Plus IR3535® SPF 30 Lotions ($14) – Repel mosquitoes, deer ticks, black flies, sand flies, gnats, no-seeums and biting midges. Aloe and vitamin E-enriched formulas are available as a Gentle Breeze Lotion and Cool ‘n Fabulous Disappearing Color Lotion.

Forgot your SSS and acted as a veritable buffet for the bugs? Avon’s got you covered–they now offer an Anti-itch spray.

Lastly, beyond just fighting off the bugs outdoors, Avon’s Skin So Soft Bug collection also helps you swat them away virtually with the first-ever Bug Guard game. The Bug Guard game went live on the Avon Facebook page recently. Play the Bug Guard Game here.

The goal of the game is for players to fend off bugs that are disrupting a virtual family picnic using various tools and Avon Skin So Soft Bug Guard products. You can post high scores to your Facebook wall and share “Free Sprays” for your friends to use in the game. Best of all, everyone who plays will receive a free shipping code that can be redeemed at Avon.com.

Avon Skin So Soft products are available through Avon representatives and on avon.com.
