Dad was my first Avon client.
BackstoryYears and years ago, tried my hand at selling Avon for all of three months. Whatever income I would make immediately went to pay off my own account.
Dad, being the picture perfect father, and encouraging any of my "many" ventures, desired to boost my sales and spirit so he bought the Skin So Soft.
Back in the day, it was known as an effective and aromatically pleasing bug repellent. Him being a fisherman and outdoors type, this made perfect sense. And earned me a few, too!
