Best bug spray for kids?

We arrive on Saturday and have already bought bug spray with deet for the adults. I have Off deep woods for the kids. Is that too strong or does anyone have a recommendation for what they use on their kids? Thanks for any advice!

Do they still have Avon skin so soft? Maybe check for an Avon Rep on the island. Skeeters must be bad this year, we have never had to use bug spray. I am not sure but, they may just sell the skin so soft bug spray over-the-counter.

Good Luck

we use the deep woods with deet for the entire family and are careful to give the kids good baths before bedtime. Our son is 8yo so I am ok with it, I would feel differently if talking about an infant or a toddler. With young youngings, I would try the California baby or Burt's bees products. Burt's bees has an oil the works pretty well at our cabin.

There is a spray sold at St. John Spice specific for little kids. I am forgetting the name at present but it works pretty well and is all

We used Avon Skin-so-soft last week and it really seemed to help. They also have a 30 SPF sunscreen that has Skin-so-soft in it. Might be a great combo for the kids.
