Avon Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus Expedition Review

in Avon


There is nothing as evil as bugs. Ugh. Spiders, beetles, and other creepy crawlers just freak me the heck out. Squeal! I was much more tolerate of bug’ems growing up as a tomboy but as I got older the tolerance got lower and lower and now I’m just deadly scares of bugs. I remember growing up circa the 1900’s, my mum used to hose me down with Skin So Soft before going out to catch lightning bugs with friends (omg! lightning bugs how horrifying! I almost swallowed one once but that’s a story for another day)….I dunno what the deal was but Skin So Soft was the miracle cure for keeping mosquitoes at bay…no worries my mum wasn’t nuts as all the mother’s did the same thing!

But thankfully we aren’t as primitive nowadays and Avon Skin So Soft has a bug guard that’s actually MEANT to use with bugs. My mum is rejoicing right now I’m sure.

This is so for me because I’m a mosquito magnet, indeed they vant to suck my blood. Avon Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus Expedition not only contains anti-bug’em repellent but also has an SPF of 30. Cool protects me from bugs and the sun, likey!

This 2 in 1 spray offers 8 hours of protection against mosquitoes, snags, flies, and other strange flying creatures that are fascinated with your blood or just want to hang out on your arm or leg. The formula is available in a gentle unscented spray or a Gentle Breeze fragrance.

If you’re outdoors alot in the evenings and the mosquitoes are buzzing around you pick up a can of Avon Skin So Soft Bug Guard to keep both the bugs and the sun at bay.


Available now from Avon for $14.

What about you?

Want It: Avon Glazewear Liquid Lip Color in Coral Beat


I’m trying to recall, don’t interupt my flow here, if I ever tried Avon Glazewear. I think I have but maybe not?

Anyway the point is I really wants Avon Glazewear Liquid Lip Color in the newest shade, Coral Beat!

Check it after the jump!

Avon says that Coral Beauty is the color I should be wearing this Summer and I couldn’t agree more. Loving all over this flattering shade of coral with a kiss of orange! Likey! Plus it’s $6 bucks (or $1.99 with two other select purchases), seriously can I really go wrong for that price? If it doesn’t work out I won’t feel nearly as guilty if I dished out $20 or more right?


Yes, I think I shall make Coral Beat mine soon.

Anyone likey?

Avon SpectraColor Lipstick Review and Swatches

Keeping up with the techy side of beauty Avon SpectraColor Lipstick allows you to customize your lipstick application by making it lighter or darker or having a more or less during application. First the Avon Pro 3-in-1 Lip Wand and this! Techy Avon, really techy! The Muse likes when you geek it!

Avon SpectraColor Lipstick kinda has a combination glossy lipstick deal going on. I haven’t decided if it’s a lipstick, a lip cream, or a lipgloss but when I find out I’ll let you know.


It’s an interesting package that much is for sure. Basically the packaging is made up of dual chambers of color. Included are a light and a dark color in the tube. On the bottom of the packaging is a dial wheel a la Avon Spectra Lash that allows you to phone home for more or less color. The general idea of the dial allows for more product in a darker or lighter format to come out of the tube. So if you want to go lighter you dial down and if you want to go darker you dial up. Kinda an interesting concept.


The formula of the lipstick (gloss, cream or whatever you’re wanting to call it) is a tad bit too rich and frosty for me. I tried out the Berries shade selection and it was a bit frosty, metallic looking on my lips. Not flattering on me, yak. Also, don’t be discouraged, but the formula looks a tad oily coming out of the tube but once it’s applied it’s perfectly glossy and shiny.

All in all the packaging is kinda nifty, plus it’s quite pigmented, and it’s only $7.99. Acting as a gloss, a lipstick, and a lip cream all in one product you can’t break the bank for $8 bucks trying it out for yourself.


It’s available now from Avon.

Anyone try it yet?
