Cleansers -Aveeno -Positively Radiant Cleansing Pads

I liked using these pads because the pad had decent scrubbing power BUT my biggest complaint is the actual product...if even the tiniest bit gets in your mouth it is so strong of chemicals...like disgusting horrible taste....


Lotions/ Creams -Aveeno -Intense Relief Hand Cream

Absolutely amazing hand cream! It absorbs really fast, lasts though hand washing and keeps the hand moisturized for great lengths of time! I use it as a moisture for my eczema after putting on some prescribed cream (sigmacort), and it does a great job of keeping the area moisturized. Many have complained about the smell but I would say I barely notice it until I actually put it to my nose, it's definitely not a pleasant scent but still subtle. It's quite a reasonable price I believe here in Australia (10 AUD).

PSA: don't throw away the cream if it can't squeeze anymore, cut it in half; I've found quite a significant amount of cream that can be used that could've been thrown away, lasting for around an extra 2-3 weeks!

I discovered this a few years ago and have been using it ever since, mostly for my hands. I keep a pump bottle in the bathroom at home, another at my desk at work, a tube in my car and another in my travel bag. It’s great for smoothing the skin and cuticles. For me, it sinks right in and I like that it’s fragrance free. Sometimes scented hand lotions can be a bit much. Highly recommend!

A very cost effective and good body moisturizer. I cannot use this on my face but on dry areas anywhere lower than my neck this works well and relieves any dry or uncomfortable feeling. Particularly my legs which are very prone to flakiness. Many body moisturizers that I've used before, regardless of price have left a sticky or oily layer on the skin but this doesn't - it sinks straight in and that's what I love about it. I've even used it as a scalp moisturizer in combination with 'Brigeo Scalp Revival Charcoal shampoo' (a dime size amount directly to scalp after shampooing and towel drying hair) and it helps keep my scalp hydrated and less prone to itchiness. Any other lotion would be too heavy and end up getting stuck in my hair.
Also perfect as a hand cream during the summer months, perhaps not as rich as you might need though for winter.
All in all a good purchase!

Cleansers -Aveeno -Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub

foto

Not good! I had high hopes for the scrub after using some of the other 'Positively Radiant' products which were great btw, but this did nothing for me, it didn't exfoliate properly (the flaky patches on forehead were still there after using) and it did nothing whatsoever for brightening my skin tone after 1 week of using it...which to be honest doesn't really surprise me since it has only one single brightening ingredient in it - soy complex and not much else. I also found it overly drying (SLS!) and if I thought it wasn't possible to dislike it anymore, I just realized it has parabens in it to boot!

I like Aveeno but don’t love this. The lotion is so thick that it clogged up the pump and it leaves a sticky feeling on my body - today the lotion was pilling on my legs as it didn’t fully absorb in 4 hours! There are definitely better body moisturisers out there.


Cleansers -Aveeno -Clear Complexion Foaming Cleanser

I try to take all reviews with a grain of salt – especially the ones for skincare! There is no one product that can cater to everyone equally and consumers should come to the realization that our skin needs can vary enormously. Which brings me to my thoughts on this Aveeno Cleanser. While this might not suit everyone, this happens to have become a staple in my nighttime skincare ritual. I’d noticed that my usually normal skin was getting more clogged pores than usual. I was using the Garnier Argan micellar water to remove my makeup and was following it up with Dove soap to wash my face. I felt that maybe the two together were a bit too emollient and that maybe the Dove wasn’t properly cleansing off the oil from the Argan-Micellar water. Since switching to Aveeno a few weeks ago, my skin issues have cleared up. I like how this is foamy and easy to use. The scent doesn’t bother me but it might bother someone who is sensitive to scents. I follow this up with a toner, a hyaluronic acid serum and my night cream. It works well for me but I can understand that someone with very dry or very oily skin may not be into this unless they find the perfect moisturizer to follow up with. I feel like this is the key – you have to moisturize properly after cleansing. My only quibble about this product would be the inclusion of salycilic acid; I don’t see how a cleanser that stays on the face for no more than 15 seconds will have enough time to treat blemishes – which is what the acid is for! I feel like a lot of people may not realize this and Aveeno knows it therefore throws it in there to appeal to those struggling with acne. I find that to be kind annoying on their part so I’ll remove one lippie for that. Otherwise, I like this as a normal cleanser and will definitely repurchase!

I have learned that after many years Aveeno has the best moisturizers. It clears up redness, acne, dryness, and any other things. The oatmeal flour is the secret ingredient if you suffer perioral dermatitis or seb. dermatitis. It’s also good for psoriasis and eczema. I also learned that silica is really good for those skin conditions as they are found in Vanicream Skin Cream. I just like Aveeno better bc it feels more moisturizing. This moisturizer and the Daily Baby one (the one that comes in a large squeeze bottle) are my two favorites. My skin is never red anymore and it feels so good. The way I use it is once a night or once in the morning after I cleanse with Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser. If you don’t like that cleanser use the one you like, as long as it doesn’t foam bc foaming cleansers disrupt the skin barrier and cause dryness, and acne over time. After I cleanse, I pay dry gently and wait a little. I then apply Aveeno. People who have dermatitis get itchy with damp skin, sweat, or oils trapped. That’s why I pat dry and wait. If you don’t suffer these issues, then apply to damp skin which will lock in moisture. This lotion is also great for body. Pretty much any formula they have with oat flour is the secret to getting comfortable itch-free skin. I never break out in hives, itchiness, or anything anymore. I would say this and the baby formula are the best on the market. They are so soothing and moisturizing I love them.

I bought this whilst on holiday in the states, Orlando.
The price was a steal in Walmart and I must say it's the best face wash I've ever used. Had it over a year and I'm hanging into every last drop as we rarely have this product here.
It's great for Brightening your skin after a shower and it smells great. Perfect for sensitive skin.

Lotions/ Creams -Aveeno -Baby Soothing Relief Moisture Cream

This stuff is very moisturizing so it gets points for that. I wouldn’t use it on my face as I have combination skin and it’s far too greasy. The reason for the low rating is the smell. It says it’s fragrance free, but for me it smells like a mixture of insect repellent and urine. Maybe I got a bad batch, but the smell is insufferable and I won’t be buying this again.

Trust me when I say this. I never, i mean NEVER give any product a five-star rating. No matter how good it is, I would always feel that it is undeserving of that. However, this is the first product that I’ve deemed worthy of a full star rating. I have—had painful dry, cracked skin between my fingers to the point I had to visit a dermatologist. However, the doctor’s prescriptions only worked for a short while. My skin continued to be in its horrible condition after finishing the doc’s products. I had a bestfriend that wanted to hold my hand, but she was disgusted when she touched it and immediately let go. I was ashamed. No lotions could ever fix my dry skin. But this—This aveeno daily moisturizing lotion is a lifesaver and ultimately affordable. I will use it on my hands and body FOREVER. I mean, that’s what I’d do to keep my skin so smooth and softer than a baby’s butt.

Cleansers -Aveeno -Clear Complexion Cleansing Pads

Definitely a must have in my nightly routine! I started getting little bumps on my forehead and the side of my cheeks. I use these wipes to double cleanse my face, using them after removing my makeup with makeup wipes, then washing my face with cleanser after. Sounds like a lot, but the bumps really cleared up! Oddly enough, I tried the positively radiant wipes by Aveeno and started getting bumps after. I guess the salicylic acid really helps!

I tried this moisturizer for about two months, on my body and face. The positives are that it does not cause breakouts, itchy skin, or reactions. It prevented itch and acne, I can definitely say. Oh and it moisturizes and keeps skin smooth. The negatives is why I stopped using it. It leaves a very thick film on the skin, sort of like rubber, that can be due to the dimethicone high percentage. With that being said, my skin was left red and a little uncomfortable. I even tried putting a small amount, once at night after cleansing with Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser. I was still left red about ten minutes after application. I was like hm maybe I need to completely remove this layery rubber. I then tried a new technique and so I scrubbed so I could apply a fresh, new layer. My skin was then left dry with a hard coat of Aveeno. Basically the only way this worked is if I didn’t scrub and left over residue from Aveeno stayed on. Skin wasn’t dry because it was occluded, BUT my skin was still red bc it was either causing heat on my face or not moisturizing my skin because of the old layer of Aveeno, If that makes any sense. I have given up on it currently, but maybe I will re-test again with a new method because I must say it’s very moisturizing. The problem was the redness and heaviness, that’s all. Still wondering if I was red bc of the heat on my face or because it wasn’t reaching my actual skin, who knows. Oh and btw, this moisturizer when used only once at night, after I cleansed works. I forgot to mention the results with body use. It’s great for body, no issues there. I would suggest using this for your body if you don’t like it for your face. I will continue to use for my body. I hope this helps.

Update: I went back to using this. I found that Aveeno really works for me. I don’t break out and my skin doesn’t feel dry. I tried using this after cleansing and waited for skin to dry and then I applied this. This time no redness or anything. I think when my skin is too damp I get itchy or red. The oatmeal in this prevents that.

Didn't realize this is targeted for infants, but anyways, it works great! Several years ago I started to have very dry, flakey eyelids (weird, I know), so I bought this hoping it would help and after a few weeks of continual use, it did! I have recently developed actual eczema and this has helped to keep that at bay as well. I will continue to buy this product.

This is the only moisturizer I can use for my eczema! Have tried every other brand out there & this is the only one that doesn't leave my skin sensitive. Would recommend using for at least a couple of weeks to see if it works for you.
