Review: Avon Skin So Soft Bug Guard Insect Repellents

After my sunscreen review post last month I had so many requests to share my favorite insect repellants. I have several in my Favorite Summer Products post but recently was asked by Avon to review and share about their line of Skin So Soft Bug Guard insect repellents.
