Hey everyone! The past weekend shopping involves a stop to my local drugstore to pick up a few skincare products to try out for you guys. I was tempted to go all the way out but reminded myself that I’ve way too many skincare products, and I opted for just two products that I actually need right now.
If you’ve been following me for awhile, you know I’m obsessed with pretty much every Aveeno product new or old. I’m at that age where taking care of my skin is no longer an option but a necessity. I’ve been loving their products since day one of my blogging days and none has yet to disappoint. It’s safe for me to say that Aveeno is an amazing drugstore brand when it comes to being affordable and convenient.
Long story short, I picked up Aveeno Makeup Removing Cleanser and their Fresh Essentials Daily Exfoliating Scrub which I’ve been so excited to try out.
This is the only one that was sent to me previously by some sort of a pr package but the other two items I got them from the drugstore. And it’s the Targeted Tone Corrector to helps even tone and fade the dark spots. I’m thankful to be sent this product and thrilled to try out.
I’d have to say that I’m quite surprised with the formula of this corrector. I was expecting it to be a little thicker in consistency to other products that I’ve tried but this one is just right. It’s a thin cream that dries up fast which is good since you’re supposed to use it in addition to the moisturizer and other makeup stuff. It has a natural and mild scents that’s not irritating nor too overwhelming. I find it pleasant and quite like it to be honest.
It says on the packaging to apply directly to areas with uneven tone and dark spots twice a day before your moisturizer.
There’s a particular uneven skin tone on my left cheek that I want it gone. So, I’m going to continue testing it out and update you guys with the development in another 2-3 weeks.
My current favorite go to Makeup Removing Cleanser has to be the Aveeno Positively Radiant for smooth and soft skin. The soy extract works incredibly well to remove makeup and cleans my skin while keeping it radiant.
Trust me, this cleanser is gentle and it cleans all the makeup and residues right away leaving skin smooth and soft. Just look at this insanely glorious foaming happening here. My skin is screaming with joy right now.
For the purpose of this first impression review, I did my makeup early in the morning and then use this makeup remover to cleanse my entire face and it works so well. I’m pleasantly surprised on how effective it cleans and make my skin feels so fresh and not drying at all. My skin feels really good, I mean it feels great!
Don’t take my word for it, you gotta try it. It’s really that good!
I was looking for an exfoliator that’s more natural and I really like this daily scrub. The mini beads are quite subtle and gentle that it’s hardly noticeable compares to other brands that I’ve tried in the past. It says on the packaging that it’s for daily exfoliating but I’m going to stick with my routine of 2-3 times a week.
One thing to remember is that this is a exfoliating scrub and not a cleanser so don’t expect it to foam or lather. I’ve had no break outs or dryness while using this. I can immediately notice the difference on my skin tone after I exfoliate and rinsed. My skin looks brighter and feels so smooth. It feels like a layer of protection covering them.
I love the amazing scents and the mild texture is just so relaxing while leaving my skin feeling fresh, clean and smooth. The scents doesn’t bother me at all because I love a good fresh and clean smell after cleaning. I’m not overly concerned with scented skincare when it comes to all natural ingredients used in making of these products. I’m not telling you this is good or bad, you’ve to decide it for yourself. All I’m saying is that it has a fragrance, a little on the strong side so if you’re sensitive to that then this may not be for you. But if you’re like me and love a nice scented southernwood plants than you’re going to like this one.
This really met all my expectations and I’m excited to try more stuff from Aveeno. You can find all the products I mentioned here at your local drugstores or nearby Walmart.
