Avon cream against midgets, which one?

Hiya, I'm looking for the avon cream that's against midgets. I've read about it a long time ago on here, but can't remember which one it is.

I've looked it up on the net, but avon has a lot of creams. It's a body lotion, I know that. Does anybody know which one it is? Then please tell me, we can do with some when go to south of France.

Re: Avon cream against midgets, which one?

The wife got a couple of bottles of "Skin So Soft" off the Avon rep at work last week , thats what she says everyone was using, it works for some and not for others ?
We are off on our break into midgie land later on this month so will see how it works for us.

Good luck what every you try


cheers

Re: Avon cream against midgets, which one?

I know it works on the Scottish midge, on reflection I dont remember getting a clegg bite either since using it, but that may be coincidence.
The tale I got was it was the British army troops started using it in the jungle as it was the best thing that worked for them.

Re: Avon cream against midgets, which one?

Well it helps I have to say, but the places you don't put that spray on are easily found by those mosquito's And boy did I react on them, big lumps they turned out to be.

Re: Avon cream against midgets, which one?

We bought a spray made from Bog Myrtle in the I O Skye brewery shop. Fantastic! (if you are a midge and looking to attack a Sassenach) I had to curtail two photo attempts because of the pesky varmints, no amount of Bog Myrtle helped. You only notice them after they bite.

Skin So Soft is what we sent out to our Para in Afghanistan and it was voted a resounding success.

Right from the start I can see where you went wrong there, what you should have bought was bottles of Red Cuillin from the brewery shop, then you would not have cared if the midge got you or not. A life lesson.

Re: Avon cream against midgets, which one?

Put on what you like but nothing works 100%. My wife is very allergic to insect bites and takes an anti-histamine tablet every day for the summer months and always carries a tube of creme for immediate use all prescribed by her Doctor. Even with that when away a week ago in Donegal got bitten by a mosquito and as a result had to attend a local Doctor who prescribed antibiotics the infection was so bad.
By the way because we had our E111 card the consultation was free and prescription only cost one euro,
two items @ 50cents each. So if going to an EU country always bring an E111 card with you.

Colin.

Re: Avon cream against midgets, which one?

Well your wifes reaction to mosquito's is quite serious then. That is another case then. I think my reactions were quite serious as well, but not that bad that I needed to go to the doctor. And I'm allergic to many things, so prown to get these reactions.

I always get those cards for the whole family when going on a trip to the EU, good tip by the way, cause most people wouldn't know this.

It would even be better if you would end up in hospital, as my insurance would pay it straight away instead of me.

Ah, a fine substitute What gets me about the brewery shop is that prices are cheeper in other shops even the Coop in Portree

My one failsafe against the midge for when I run out or forget my Avon is cigars. Even my wife will use them as we find that effective,..... of course if your having a cigar you may as well have a dram or two so that may have something to do with it.
