Walks And Walking – Avon Skin So Soft Bug Guard Essentials
OK, let’s just kick this article off and say this product works. I have been wearing my walking trousers for all walks this year as I found my legs kept getting stung and bitten so I was delighted to receive some samples from the new Avon Skin So Soft Bug Guard range of essentials and get my walking shorts back on.
Whilst my Epping Forest walk to test them out may not be quite the same as an amazonian rain forest the recent rain did mean that as soon as the sun came out the crops, grass and nettles had exploded into life. Most the the paths and tracks from the walking route I used to test out the Avon Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus Expedition spray were overgrown and quite tough, by my standards, to battle through but I managed to get through it all unscathed.
I did get stung by nettles quite badly and at one point I had convinced myself that it was a snake bite because I couldn’t see my legs through the greenery and it really hurt. When I had cleared the crop of nettles I looked for two spots of blood on my leg but couldn’t find anything and after a few minutes the stinging stopped so it obviously wasn’t a snake afterall. In my defence I had walked about 10 miles at that stage and it was really hot so my mind was wandering all over the place! Normally a day or so after the walk the stings get really itchy but not only did I not get bitten by anything, the Avon Bug Guard appeared to have taken all the sting out of the nettles too, so I didn’t even get any itches from the nettles.
