Avon Skin So Soft Original Dry Oil Spray – More Than Just a Moisturizer

A Legacy of Skincare Excellence

Avon’s Skin So Soft has been a beloved brand since the 1960s, known for its exceptional quality and the luxurious experience it offers. Our Original Dry Oil Spray is no exception, continuing this tradition of excellence and providing a premium skincare experience.

An Added Bonus – Insect Repellent Properties

While it is tested and marketed as a luxurious moisturizer, Avon’s Skin So Soft Dry Oil Spray has also gained popularity for its secondary use as a gentle insect repellent.
