Alternative Insect Repellent For those not in the know the alternative insect repellent that everyone has been on about is in fact Avon Skin So Soft Dry Oil Body Spray (Soft & Fresh), the other scented ones are not the same, as they do not have the citronella in it. Spookily enough, my other half sells Avon and has just put in a large order for some, which should arrive no later than Fri 1 May. It normally retails at Â£5 per bottle; however, she can sell it for Â£3 plus p&p If you would like to pre-book some then please drop us a line. 50p per bottle will go to Help For Heroes As a result of more info from other Avon Reps i have been able rehash the list and it now covers 101 other uses people have used it for. We must however state it is not sold for these uses.
