    Afternoon everyone
    Just went on to ebay to buy some of this for our holiday in scotland, only to find there are loads of different types, does anyone know which one is the best? (For repelling midges) :Wink:Thanks.

    I think the stuff we use is in a green bottle.

    Which part of Scotland are you going to cos you only need it on the west coast (local knowledge - we live on the east coast).

    Hi Wizzer

    We use the Soft & Fresh which as Philw111 mentioned comes in a green bottle.

    Cheers John.

    If you go on the Avon website they often have deals which are better value than elsewhere.

    Hi Guys

    Thanks for that, much appreciated although the ones on ebay are saying the dry oil body spray £50 for twenty, should see me through the week:Rofl1::Eeek:

    Philw111 give you two guesses and it aint where you are (although if they are that bad I might be:Doh:)

    You need the dry oil body spray in Woodland Fresh.

    Works for me, even used it in France for the mozzies. :thumb:

    Hi Wizzer,

    I don't like Marmite either :Angry:, so I use the Avon stuff too. It makes you smell like a fairy though. :Rofl1:

    Linking..........copy the url, click on the "insert link" above, right click and paste, click OK, and hey presto..................AVON SKIN SO SOFT OIL SPRAY INSECT MOSQUITO REPELLENT on eBay, also, Body Sprays Mists, Bath Body, Health Beauty (end time 24-Apr-09 19:52:11 BST)
    Same product, but sold in the USA as "Bug Guard" http://shop.avon.com/shop/product_list.aspx?from=product_list.aspx&level1_id=300&level2_id=303&pdept_id=344&dept_id=344&bnd=1

    Depending upon the cost of p+p, it may be better to sign up, and buy direct from Avon UK. Skin So Soft Soft & Fresh Dry Oil Body Spray

    Enjoy Scotland, it's a great place, and so are the folks.

    Cheers,

    Jock.

    We are toying with the idea, but we are short on time, if we do we will pop in and say hello.

    Have a great weekend!
