    Question Help with Skin so Soft

    Good morning all,

    I am currently in Cape Town and heading up to Kruger on the weekend and the on to Zambia.

    I couldn't get hold of any SSS in New Zealand and was told by the people in the Avon shop in N1 City that it is no longer available.

    Can anyone help me with how/where I can get hold of some? Or is it my destiny to be eaten alive by tsetse's in Kafue?

    Cheers

    Witklip, it's an Avon product. I suggest one contacts them directly.

    Ok, can get you some, still available, Price R46-00. But it is in Springs, Gauteng.

    So, i think you must get hold of Avon. May be there in Cape Town is somebody.

    If you want, just PM me, i will order .

    But tell me, is there something in it to prevent bites from the tzetze?

    I have a bootle that I had to order from the UK (because I wanted the "spray" bottle). It was discussed a few months ago / end of last year. Aparently it is the stuff that the SAS and other commandos use worldwide for biting insects. (if it is the same one?)

    It's still available in the UK. In fact one of our camping shops had it on the counter the other day along with other mozzie stuff.

    We have used it on our last trip and yes, it works.

    We haven't tested it on tsetsi, on a hot day as yet, but we will be testing it this summer.

    I have contacted one of Avon's beauty shops and were told that the SSS Bath and Body Oil that Mike was refering to, is not on the market anymore. I am now going to try SSS shimmering body lotion. Bottles to the same.

    My experience was that it was fine on the hottest of hot days (42+ in Zambezi Valley), but that as an oil I was worried that I might get sunburn more quickly.

    Johan, ek sien hulle se die geheime bestandeel: Citronella. So, ek wonder of die gewone citronella olie nie dieselfde sal doen nie.

    No, it doesn't Elize. I tried. There is a combination of oils in SsS that does the trick.
