Avon’s £3.50 hydrating dry oil has racked up hundreds of Amazon five-star reviews from customers and it even works as a mozzie repellent


AS much as we love soaking up the sun on our summer holidays, the unpleasant chemical smell of insect spray certainly does put a downer on our poolside lounging.

Well forget making a last-minute dash to the pharmacy to stock up on the smelly spray because there’s a new summer essential making waves in the beauty community – and it promises to protect you from mosquitoes AND moisturise the skin.

  • Skin So Soft Dry Oil Spray, £3.50 from AVON – buy now

That’s right, Avon’s Skin So Soft dry oil has racked up hundreds of five-star reviews from impressed customers on Amazon.

The extremely moisturising spray has been formulated with natural jojoba oils which lock in moisture as well as drying down quickly.

In other words, it’s a poolside must-have when you’ve spent a tad too long in the sun.

Better still, the dry oil – which can also be used to tame flyaway hair – doubles up as an insect repellent without that nauseating chemically smell.

Instead, the handy Avon product boasts a light, refreshing citrus scent which customers can’t get enough of.

While an individual 150ml bottle will only set you back £3.50 if you buy directly through the Avon website, a two-pack of the dry oil spray has quickly topped the Amazon best-seller list.

Praising the multipurpose product, one customer raved: “Well this is fab, best product for making your skin feel like a baby’s bottom.”

Raving about the “silky smooth” finish, they added: “Great for sealing in moisture after a shower.”

Meanwhile, the product has amassed a loyal fan base over the years made up of customers who swear by it as both a moisturiser and an insect spray.

Another joked: “Bought this to deter biting insects from eating me alive. Am still here and have lovely, soft fragrant skin too!”
