I am officially back from holidays and SO excited for all of the awesome things coming up in the next few weeks! Be sure to stay tuned! Kicking things off as we jump into 2015 – Aveeno’s Fresh Essentials line!
I was thrilled to have the opportunity to test out these products because I’m a huge Aveeno fan.
I received (from left to right) Aveeno Fresh Essentials Daily Moisturizer SPF 30, Aveeno Fresh Essentials Daily Exfoliating Scrub, and Aveeno Fresh Essentials Night Cream.
Let’s have a look!
Aveeno Fresh Essentials Daily Moisturizer SPF 30
It just so happens I was looking for a daily moisturizer to fit into my skincare routine when this beauty arrived. The fact that it also offers sun protection is an added bonus. I have naturally oily skin, so I am always air on the side of caution when it comes to choosing a moisturizer, especially one that contains some form of sun protection. There’s truly nothing I hate more than the feeling of my skin after I’ve lathered sunblock on it. I was a bit skeptical when I initially applied the product, but I was absolutely (pleasantly?) surprised at the outcome. Aveeno Fresh Essentials Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 helps to restore the skin’s natural moisture barrier for fresher and healthier looking skin, all while creating a natural barrier that helps to lock in what’s good for your skin, and keep everything else out. This product worked beautifully under my makeup and didn’t leave an oily residue like some other products I’ve tried in the past. I’m really excited to have this for the upcoming beach season!
Aveeno Fresh Essentials Daily Exfoliating Scrub
I generally use a fairly rough exfoliant that isn’t the best for my sensitive skin, so when I received Aveeno Fresh Essentials Daily Exfoliating Scrub, I was really excited to try it out and compare! Since receiving these products, I’ve used this product consistently every night. As a scrub, it’s gentle enough to use daily like the name suggests, but thorough enough to make your skin feel nice and smooth after each use. Bonus? It smells amazing and doesn’t turn my skin red! This product is enriched with natural luffa and coconut pulp to gently remove dirt and make-up from the pores, making it perfect for those with sensitive skin, or for getting a deep, daily cleanse. My skin looks smoother, brighter, balanced, and more polished than before I started using it. This one is definitely a keeper!
Aveeno Fresh Essentials Night Cream
To be frank, I’ve never used a night cream before. Not a night cream specifically made for night, at least. I generally use coconut oil or my daily moisturizer, and while I love the benefits coconut oil has on my skin, I’ve really enjoyed the benefits Aveeno Fresh Essentials Night Cream has brought to the table! Not only does this product smell amazing, it leaves my skin looking fresh when I wake up in the morning. It’s kind of an amazing feeling to actually look as refreshed as you feel! Aveeno Fresh Essentials Night Cream infuses fortifying antioxidants and vitamins onto the skin, replenishing the skin with all things good, while creating an oil-free barrier to keep the bad things out. This is another product that will definitely remain a part of my daily (nightly?) skincare routine!
