How to Beat the Bugs of Summer

Summer, I love you! In July, I traveled around the Northeast for two weeks. I’m so excited to team up with Avon because my number one travel essential was their Skin So Soft Bug Guard Collection. I thoroughly enjoyed everything about summer in New England and the Hamptons. We soaked up all the beautiful weather with long, leisurely dinners outside while watching the sun drop lower and lower in the sky.

The evening is, without a doubt, my favorite part of the day. However, my whole life, I’ve been a magnet for bugs and mosquitos. So, while I love to watch the bugs dance along the water. I hate having my night spoiled by itchy, painful bug bites! This summer, I found a product that I now can’t live without. I’m thrilled to share with y’all… Especially my southern readers as you’ll need this!

Avon Skin So Soft Bug Guard Collection

Not only is this bug repellent, but many of their products have SPF coverage. I’m so careful to protect myself from sun damage so this is the reason I originally wanted to try the product and one of the reasons I’ve been using it for months now.

SPF + bug repellent = perfect for the summer months and outdoor adventures! I’m also careful about what I put onto my skin. So it’s a huge plus for me that the entire collection is deet-free.

My two favorite products from the collection are the Bug Guard Plus IR3535®  Aerosol Spray and the Bug Guard Plus Picaridin Towelettes.

Bug Guard Plus IR3535® Aerosol Spray:

It repels mosquitoes for 8 hours and deer ticks for 12 hours so I can spend all day outside without worrying about bug or sun protection. I love to wear this product outside when walking my dog, going on hikes, and when I get inspired to garden.

 Bug Guard Plus Picaridin Towelette:

Also, it repels mosquitoes for 8 hours and deer ticks for 12 hours. I love this product because it was designed to repel insects at dawn and dusk when they are most active. The towelettes come in a re-sealable bag of 8 packets. I keep these towelettes in my purse at all times so I’m always prepared for an al fresco dinner or an evening outside.

  1. That sounds like a lifesaver! Here in England we’re quite lucky that we don’t have as many bugs since it’s not as warm – though I wish we had the hotter climate! These products sound amazing!

    I hope you’re having a marvelous Tuesday!
