In Newfoundland they were selling record amounts of a skin lotion and bath oil called Skin So Soft. Turns out people swore by it for reppeling skeeters.
Skin So Soft makes you smell very pretty and gives you nice soft skin with no deet, no citronella in it at all.
I have tried it and it does work better than any deet product I've used.
I think the company started marketing the stuff with a new label saying "soft skin no bugs" type of thing.
Enjoy the true freedom that comes from being completely free of the shackles of reality.
