Default Bugs and Avon Skin so Soft

Hey...last year in Belize some friends were eaten up on the beaches by bugs. Some said they had success with Avon Skin so Soft product. I am heading 1 hour south of Cancun...is this bug problem in this area as well? Also, any thoughts on Skin so Soft? Any thoughts please...
Thanks, Karyn

Default go for it!

I have no idea about the bugs down near Cancun but I only use skin so soft when i'm at home and haven't had a bite in over 3 years now. It also kept the bugs off when we were in Georgia so that has to say something.

I also use SSS from Avon for mosquitos. They now have a spray on sunscreen that has the skin so soft in it which is the citronela oil I believe.
Have a great cruise all!!

I would use either but be sure to buy it before you go. The vendors down there know you need it and charge an enormous price for it. Been there, done that.

Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.

Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.
