Is it not available in different coloured bottles. If so, do it matter which one you buy for the best effects.



I need to get some, I;m there in two weeks,,,,,,,,,,,can't wait..

The bottle is greeny blue but its the 'soft n fresh' version one you want.

The shower creme has been discontinued.

I have got ten bottles to bring out but it won't be till Oct (change of plans)

I will pass them on when I get to TRNC.

The only one that helps to stop you getting bitten is the skin so soft dry oil spray, the one in the green/blue bottle, not the shower cream etc..



If you would like to order please see above. If you order it will be delivered next week, so you can use at the time when you most need it!!

Hi Kav, your link was for Avon diret this one is for eBay UK ;just go to http://www.ebay.co.uk and type in Avon Skin So soft dry Oil

Loads of offers come up. The best is 5 bottles for 9.25, plus postage I think.

Hi



The skin so soft for 13ytl is delievered to you and orignates here - it is not coming from the UK - this is Avon TRNC.

The prices are higher than the UK ( as with most things here), but if you are getting bitten and need relief then do you really want to wait for it to come from the UK - your choice, you can buy from me if you would like to!!!



If you would like to order and receive next week then please give me a call on 0533 8301887 or email joanne.hickey@gmail.com by fri eve

We have tried everything over the years to combat mossies and midges in Yorkshire, Scotland and around the Med.



Many repellants contain chemicals my wife is allergic to.



The best to date is the local 'brew' from Pharmacies in Girne, Mat Kov Sensitive. Clear & odourless, no added chemicals. Cheap & 100% effective.

Thank you Avon! I am one of those unfortuate people who attract mozzies and was covered in bites until last week. I bought some Avon Skin so Soft from Joanne and haven't had one single bite since. I've really enjoyed sitting outside in the evenings without the worry of being bitten.

You can also get a product from the pharmacies here, I think the name is Setrin, this is a tablet taken daily for a month or so before the insects become a problem, you carry on taking it and should I am told prevent having bad reactions to sand flies.
