Best Bug Protection for Families

avon bug guard

Mosquitoes love me. I'm a big, bug magnet. I admit to even using the harsh stuff to avoid being eaten alive when I enjoy the great outdoors. This weekend I tested out the latest from Avon: Bug Guard Essentials. We took them in some tough terrain--even an evening party along the Housatonic. Score? Bugs 0 Nicole happy.

The line has four elements all in the Skin So Soft family (prices range from $10-$16) and include anti-itch spray, bug sprays and combo products that provide sun protection and bug protection.

First let me tell you how much the kids loved the Cool 'n Fabulous Disappearing Color Lotion. It came out bold, bright blue. The girls cheered, and then when we rubbed it in, the blue went away without much effort (the girls were a wee bit disappointed they wouldn't get to be blue all day). So to recap the color vanished but the protection didn't. A great sunscreen, and,the best part? The bugs stayed away. Even during horseback riding lessons. This line is DEET-free and works to keep mosquitoes and ticks at bay while giving kids the full protection of SPF 30.

Later that day we headed to a cookout on the river. I knew the bugs would be blood-thirsty after the long winter. We only applied the Bug Guard Plus once and were able to enjoy hours outdoors without a nibble.

Right now you can get this awesome tote and eight products for $50
