Review: Aveeno

I was fortunate enough to be chosen as an Aveeno Ambassador. This means that I am part of the Aveeno Discoverer Program and I get sent products now and then to trial on myself and others. I then have to review them and let them know what I think! It's great! :D

The first package I received contained two Aveeno products I had never heard of before, the Stress Relief Moisturizing Lotion and the Positively Radiant SPF30 Daily Moisturizer. I have been using both of these religiously for over a week now, and thought I'd share my experiences with you!

First up is the Stress Relief Moisturizing Lotion (sorry about the pics, I just found them on the Aveeno website - batteries in my camera are dead!)

If you're like me, you want your body moisturizer to be absorbed quickly, but leave your skin feeling silky and smooth. I don't have the time or patience to be rubbing in moisturizer for ages, I have better things to do! And what's the point in moisturizing at all if you don't get that silky smooth feeling?! I mean, come on..
Well I'm happy to tell you that this does exactly what I expect it to do. It's absorbed almost instantly and my skin has never felt so good. Excellent!

The one thing that bothers me about this though, is the smell. I can't stand highly fragranced lotions like this (not entirely true, I love the body butters from The Body Shop) but this is different, I find The Body Shop fragrances to be strong, but kinda soft, if you get what I mean. This on the other hand has a harshness to the smell that I just don't like. Even though the smell doesn't last long at all, I'm not sure if I would purchase this after it runs out.

Next, the Positively Radiant SPF30 Daily Moisturizer

Everyone is always on the hunt for the BEST Anti-aging cream to slather all over themselves, because no one wants to age prematurely, right? Well you can stop buying into all those products that claim to be 'Botox in a jar' etc, because the BEST Anti-aging cream is sunscreen. I kid you not, sunscreen is the one product that is proven to stop premature aging and it is never too late (or too early!) to start wearing this every single day.

I hadn't actually come across a Daily Moisturiser that had such a high SPF before, I am so impressed with this! Not only does it protect you from those harsh UV rays, but it's quickly absorbed into the skin and actually doesn't feel thick and greasy like most sunscreens do. It also actually leaves your skin feeling soft, I swear my face and neck are just loving this.

I honestly feel like if I had've had this in Summer, I wouldn't have got as sunburnt as I did. I will definitely be purchasing this after it's finished, and would recommend this to everyone.

I'm really enjoying this Aveeno Discoverer Program, and I hope that it helps you all find a product that works for you.
I'm also loving blogging again, even though I've just stolen Mum's laptop in order to do so. :P I've missed you all and hope you're all well and healthy!

Thanks for viewing!

  4. Did Aveeno just launch or re-launch in Australia and NZ recently? I swear I never saw their products stocked here (or at least I didnt notice if they were there), but now theyre everywhere :|

  5. I am so glad you are reviewing their products. I am trying out one of their facial mosturizers right now since I have dry and oily skin. I hope it works well!
