What Is Avon’s SPF30 Bug Guard?
Simply put this product is a three-in-one solution to your summer needs: sun protection, bug protection, and heat protection. In one application you can ensure that your skin can withstand penetrating UV rays, ward off unsightly mosquito bites, and prevent dry skin caused by excessive heat. If you want to stop buying so many summertime skin products, Aveeno’s Skin So Soft Bug Guard is a great place to look.
What Makes Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus IR3535® Gentle Breeze SPF 30 Lotion Work?
This product contains a few ingredients that are common in many other skin care products:
It does NOT contain parabens.
The way this product works is by combining the preventative measures of sunblock with the healing nature of lotion. The lotion applies hydrating, revitalizing aloe and vitamin E to keep skin healthy. Simultaneously, the sunblock seals in these wholesome effects and insulates it away from UVA and UVB radiation. The entire product is infused with Avon’s trusted Bug Guard that makes the skin less appealing to hungry mosquitoes.
How Effective Is Avon’s Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus IR3535® Gentle Breeze SPF 30 Lotion?

Every aspect of this Skin So Soft product is evaluated in the laboratory. This is the foundation of Avon’s safety and quality guarantees, and means that you can trust their products.
What Are The Advantages Of This Product?
The biggest change you’ll see in Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus IR3535® Gentle Breeze SPF 30 Lotion is that it is only one product. This means that it is at least 3x simpler to apply than most other dedicated products. You get a higher effectiveness-to-ingredient volume ratio than the standard lotion. It is formulated to maximize the health of your skin rather than simply act as a pre-emptive defense.
Are There Disadvantages?
Avon’s Bug Guard is questionably effective. Mosquito-repellant effects have not been proven outside of Avon’s claims. Users report spotty usefulness of the Bug Guard. Possibly related, though separate, is the common complaint that Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus IR3535® Gentle Breeze SPF 30 Lotion must be reapplied more often than other products. Additionally, some users sought a higher SPF rating than this product offers.
Should You Purchase Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus IR3535® Gentle Breeze SPF 30 Lotion?
If the simplicity of a single product appeals to you, this product offers better results than other so-called “all-in-one” solutions. If you would rather find a 100% effective moisturizer, sunblock, or bug spray then it may be worth investing in individual products. But the money saved alone is worth the investment in Avon’s Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus IR3535® Gentle Breeze SPF 30 Lotion.
