I always knew that Avon Skin So Soft was the OG (original gangsta) of clean scented insect repellent. What I didn’t know was that Avon had gone even further and created a line of repellent specifically made for repelling insects and no-seeums.

The first summer I used the aerosol Bug Guard w/ SPF28, I was pretty much hooked.  This was and is my all time favorite and best insect repellent. It smelled nice, did the job, and provided sunscreen as well. Browse some of the most popular styles of Bug Guard and make sure to read the reviews.

*Side note: The Bug Guard wipes seem to be the least favorite according to reviews. Although you could probably make your own with baby wipes and a few spritzes of the pump spray.
