Product Description

This item is a Best Seller and one that you won't want to be without during the summer and whilst on holiday. The oil is totally dry and does not leave any marks or smudges on your clothes. It helps soften your skin and is best applied after a bath or shower whilst the skin is slightly damp as this locks in the moisture. There is a very pleasant woody smell and the oil is clear. If you want a fresh 'just stepped out of the shower' smell this is pretty close. It contains citronella which is a lemon smell and which helps to repel insects. The spray comes in 150ml and has a pump dispenser. A few years ago I read that this spray can be used as an insect repellent, as raved about by Mel Gibson. Anyway, I will now never go on holiday without it. It is a brilliant insect repellent and it smells nice and you don't get that awful toxic smell, as you do with other brands. You have a two in one product here so I would recommend giving it a try. Another good point is if you are off out and have forgotten to apply the lotion to your bare skin and are wearing tights or stockings just spray on top as it does not leave any marks or stains. 150ml. PLEASE NOTE that Avon are changing the design of this bottle so the bottle you receive may look different from that shown in the photograph. They are also changing the name of the item to Skin So Soft ORIGINAL Dry Oil Spray.

5.0 out of 5 stars Combats the Scottish Midge 19 July 2010
As part of a group of anglers who have fished the Highland Lochs for many years this product came to our attention when it first appeared in the local angling shops. We were sceptical at first but having used it in the worst of midge conditions ( still, damp evenings !) can
vouch for it's effectivness.

From the Outer Hebrides to Turkey, Egypt, Thailand and beyond Avon Skin So Soft dry oil is the most effective insect repellant ever - a must in these climates.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Midge repellent ever. Fact. 13 Mar 2013
I was just reading through some of these reviews as I'm about to get my Avon resupply ordered in preparation for the yearly onslaught and thought I had better throw my two pence in.

As a Midge repellent this stuff is brilliant. Some people say the different colour bottles work differently for them, personally I believe as long as its Skin So Soft then its all good. It must be noted that it generally wont stop them from landing on you but they certainly wont bite you (in my experience)

As a Mosquito repellent... Personally I'm not overly convinced, however as Scotland doesn't appear to have too many Mossies, at least not as many as down South then I'm not really bothered. The odd Mossie I can handle, a swarm of 1000+ Midges is no laughing matter! If any of you have had the pleasure of finding yourself on Rannoch Moor in the Summer in little or no wind then you will know exactly what I am talking about.

Well done Avon, even if you wont endorse it as a Midge repellent ;)

5.0 out of 5 stars SKIN SO SOFT AND HRT .... 10 July 2010
I am writing this to help I hope
This is a fantastic product and yes I do sell it
But to get the best from the use of this which as you know was not officially developed for the use of a repellent but as it contains Citronelle which the mossies hate and other bugs also it seems
However ..
If you take H R T there is something in the patches that makes mosquitos want to bite you so to get the best out of this product here is how I have been told one needs to use it

Have shower or Bath ( WARM OR HOT)
Get Dry as fast as can
When Dry apply the spray to your body ( ALL OF IT APART FROM EYES as will sting )
Get Dressed
Top up during the day on Arms and any part of body that is exposed by spraying onto the skin and lightly massaging into the skin

This way even if you use the HRT Patches or do have a skin that is prone to being bitten you stand the best chance of the product doing the best it can to protect and at same time make you smell a million dollars with a scent that is fine for use on Men or Women even Children Skin is fine with this product and babies providing you ensure you do a test on thier skin before you spray them or if they have Eccma then please check with your doctor or midwife before use on Children
Hope this helps
