When my kids were little, I used Aveeno Baby wash, daily moisture lotion, diaper rash cream, and sunscreen on their baby-soft skin. While they never had any sensitive skin issues, I found the brand to be gentle and effective. Now that they’re older, the girls still use Aveeno lotion and I love, love, love their Active Naturals ‘Positively Smooth’ shave gel. It’s all I use. Aveeno’s a brand I can always count on!
This is why I was thrilled to get the opportunity to try out a bunch of Aveeno products and tell you all about ’em! Winter always leaves my skin terribly dry, so getting a package full of skincare products was a dream!
AVEENO® POSITIVELY RADIANT® COLLECTION
This line of facial skincare products targets the 5 Factors of Radiance – 1) tone 2) texture 3) dullness 4) blotchiness 5) brown spots. All issues we deal with every day that leave our skin looking tired and dull!
But no more of that! I’ve been using all the Aveeno products pictured above and love every one of them. In the mornings I’ve just been using a little of the daily moisturizer, or the tinted moisturizer if I’m going out. Later in the day is when I exfoliate, cleanse, and moisturize. After my evening skincare routine, my skin feels brighter, I look more awake, and I feel good that I actually spent a couple of minutes focusing on me.
AVEENO® POSITIVELY RADIANT® SKIN BRIGHTENING DAILY SCRUB
This scrub gently exfoliates to help improve skin tone and texture. It felt cool going on, and my skin felt a little tighter after using it. The unique formula combines moisture-rich natural soy extracts with smooth, round microbeads. I used to only use a scrub a couple of times a week, but I find that this formula is gentle enough for everyday use.
AVEENO® POSITIVELY RADIANT® BRIGHTENING CLEANSER
I never know whether to exfoliate or cleanse first. I figure if I exfoliate first the cleaner will be able to lift even more dirt away, right? So I’ll stick with that. This, like all these Aveeno products, is soap-free, oil-free, hypoallergenic and noncomedogenic.
AVEENO® POSITIVELY RADIANT® DAILY CLEANSING PADS
These are awesome! One side of the pad is textured to gently exfoliate, the other is soft, and it’s moistened with foaming skin-conditioning cleansers and natural soy extracts. Makes taking off makeup so easy! I like the round shape, and it’s thick enough to to tear while I’m scrubbing away! Oh, and the bottle is pretty. The cap is a lovely opalescent green that doesn’t look bad next to my bathroom sink. You know I look at things like that! 😉
AVEENO® POSITIVELY RADIANT® TINTED MOISTURIZER WITH SPF 30
There’s nothing better than combining makeup and a moisturizer into one product! This tinted moisturizer may be my favorite new product. The Active Naturals® Total Soy Complex is supposed to brighten and even skin tone, and I think it does just that. It gives me a “dewy” look, which I can probably attribute to natural light-reflecting minerals, without feeling heavy, like regular foundation. Oh, and the fact that it’s SPF 30 is icing on the cake! Available in two shades: Fair to Light and Medium – I’m light-skinned, but found Medium to blend in just fine!
AVEENO® POSITIVELY RADIANT® DAILY MOISTURIZER WITH SPF 30
Just like the tinted moisturizer, this product contains UVA/UVB protection to help prevent premature aging. The natural light diffusers, mica and silica, give skin that radiant look I love!
AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Lotion
This bottle up above lives on my nightstand. I like that it’s not greasy, absorbs quickly, and is fragrance free. The unique natural oatmeal formula helps prevent and protect dry skin for up to 24 hours. It’s my go-to lotion before bed! There’s also a version with SPF 15 (to the right), which is what I put on my girls before they go to school in the mornings. Even a few minutes of sun exposure every day can add up!
Aveeno believes that nature has the power to make life beautiful. This is why the brand uses ingredients with oat and soy to soothe, heal, and maybe even transform you! Available for purchase at your local food and drugstores. For more information, please visit the Aveeno website.
