My Favorite Drugstore Skincare Products: Aveeno & Neutrogena


I’m now convinced a well overdue summer is happening soon, so I wanted to take the chance to share with you what I’ve been loving lately.

If you’ve been following me then you know that I love a good sunscreen in summer. My skin gets tan quite easily so a good sunscreen lotion is paramount. When it comes to protect and hydrate, I always go for AVEENO.

I really appreciate when brands carry a wide selection of SPF to choose from. But before I go on further, a big shout out to the PR company for sending me these goodies in exchange for my honest opinion.

#Aveeno Sunscreen

Aveeno Active Naturals Protect + Hydrate Lotion Sunscreen With Broad Spectrum

Some of you asked me about my favorite sunscreen including the one for the face that wasn’t too sticky or thick. So glad you asked! Aveeno is hands down my top favorite drugstore sunscreen that I’ve found and I’m going to tell you why.

First off, I really like how hydrating this is. As for someone with dry skin this serves me well as both a moisturizer and a sunscreen. I love the high SPF and the non-greasy formula which I think would be great for sensitive skin person. NO breakout!

I love that this is a face specific sunscreen that’s oil free and won’t cause you any breakouts.

So, before I step out the door, I make sure to apply the sunscreen before leaving the house. The good news is that you can use this for the face as well before putting on any makeup. It doesn’t leave any white cast when I apply them on my skin. I noticed a mild beachy scents but honestly it doesn’t bother me at all. As a matter of fact, I actually quite like the scents.

With summer just a stone throw away it also means the days are longer. And because I love this stuff so much I like to keep an extra tube in my car just in case we need to reapply every 2 hours. The best thing is my whole family can also enjoy the benefits of this cream on them.  I’d recommend you try them out if you’re as obsessed with sunscreen as I am!


AVEENO® Positely Radiant 60 Second-In-Shower Facial 

Traveling can make your skin feel dull and tired, but this product give your skin the love it needs! The AVEENO® POSITIVELY RADIANT 60 Second In-Shower Facial is formulated with moisture-rich soy and lemon peel extract.  I’ve tried it for the past few weeks and I notice it works best with the steam in the shower. The steam works to soften the pores and then deeply but gently exfoliate dirt, oil and dead skin cells in just one minute.

They claim that it transform dull, tired-looking skin to brighter, more radiant and velvety soft skin in just 1 minute.  This product is formulated with moisture-rich soy and lemon peel extract that helps to gently remove dirt and oil. I’ve been reaching for this stuff over and over again for the past fews weeks and are very pleased with the results. The micro beads are soft and gentle for the skin. Everytime I lookedat myself in the mirror after a warm shower, I noticed my skin looking more radiant and so refresh. This stuff isn’t too harsh or drying to my skin. It’s my go to face exfoliator currently. I just knew I was going to love this stuff! Definitely worth checking it out!

Neutrogena Hydro Boost

NEUTROGENA Hydro Boost Gel Cream

Follow with NEUTROGENA Hydro Boost Gel Cream, formulated with hydrating hyaluronic acid, for more supple and smooth skin.

I can’t stop reaching for it and has added this to my evening skincare routine. I love how hydrating it make my skin feels everytime I’m in love with the gentle soft and silky smooth my skin is experiencing for the past few weeks. The result is phenomena. I’d highly recommend trying this if you’re looking for something that gives your skin a healthy boost!

  1. Absolutely love these two brands! Unfortunately I can’t use the gel cream because it breaks me out, but I use the entire line otherwise and love it! I’ll have to try the Aveeno sunscreen this year.


  2. I love makeup remover wipes. On those nights when all I can do is throw myself into bed, having a pack of wipes on my bedside table saves me pimples the next morning.


  3. Drugstore or not, those are two of my favorites also! Our Sam’s Club carries a huge line of Aveeno products!
