What’s up you guys! Welcome back to my blog! This week is a very exciting week for me. I was contacted by a PR company before Mother’s Day if I want to receive samples to honor mothers from Aveeno. I immediately said yes, (a) because I’m a fan girl of Aveeno, (b) since my mom is coming to visit me in two weeks, I wanted to share these goodies with her. With Aveeno and Neutrogena, everyday is Mother’s Day!
So, last week I got these sample products in the mail for an exchange of my honest review. Part of my job as a beauty blogger is to test out as much as possible so I can share my reviews with you guys.
If you are a long time reader you know that I’m a fan girl of Aveeno. I’m also a huge advocate for taking care of your skin, it’s the largest part in our body and the one everyone sees! You only get one, take care of it!
I wanted to do something really special to honor my mom this Mother’s Day beside sharing products with her. So I uploaded my very first YouTube video ever. It’s my first video and definitely not my last!
First of all let’s talk about what I got in this box unboxing. Let me show you what’s inside the current drop…
Up close picture of my favorite products side by side.
AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Lotion is certainly having a moment isn’t it? It’s everywhere you look and what a revelation too; a moisturizing lotion that’s skin friendly, affordable and effective. What more could you ask for?
AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Body Wash. I rave about this all the time but truly it’s one of the best moisturizing body wash. It smells so amazing! It’s formulated with ACTIVE NATURALS® Colloidal Oatmeal to moisturize for 24 hours, leaving skin feeling soft and smooth. They claim to provide and lock in moisture for softer, smoother more comfortable skin long after you shower. And it’s soap free and even gentle enough for sensitive skin. I love Aveeno’s Body Wash crazy lot and let me tell you this, you got to try it. Period.
I know that my mom prefers a lightweight formula when it comes to body care and this AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Sheer Hydration Lotion will be perfect for her. This hydrating, ultra sheer lotion absorbs in seconds, for a fresh, powder like feel she’ll want to use all year round. This product is voted by Canadian Living Consumers to be the Best New Product of 2016.
NEUTROGENA® All-in-One Make-Up Removing Cleansing Wipes. I know facial wipes aren’t for everyone but I do like to stash a pack in my handbag for any make-up emergency or when travelling. Otherwise, regardless of how tired I may be, I will always opt for a “real” cleanser kinda gal. My real gripe with make-up wipes is how they leave my skin feeling after use – even if it is just one use. If ever there was a facial cleansing cloth to pack for a festival, or those just-in-case moments it’s the Neutrogena Make-Up Removing Cleansing Wipes.
My mom wears makeup and since we’ll be travelling quite a bit when she’s here visiting, I know this wipes is going to be handy.
NEUTROGENA® Facial Cleansing Bar Original and Dry Unscented. Soap. Truly how often do you purchase soap and no I’m not talking about the anti-bacterial liquid hand soap you purchase with your weekly grocery shop, rather I’m indeed referring to the solid bars that perhaps now seem a little lost in time. It claims this bar is pure and provides a gentle cleansing for clean, clear, healthy-looking skin.
I never use soap to wash my face but I like to venture and try new things that I haven’t tried before. Frankly I’m nervous but I’m going to put this to its test and give an update in an upcoming post.
NEUTROGENA® NORWEGIAN FORMULA® Fragrance Free Hand Cream. This is my favorite hand cream, it’s highly concentrated skin care formula instantly leaves dry hands noticeably softer and smoother after just one application. It smells nothing at all. This product is fragrance free.
I only use a small amount of products on my hands as shown below, just a little goes a long way. You can see a noticeable difference in softness and smoothness on your hands after application. Your hands will feel very hydrated and will thank you for it. I’ve tried it and I’m convinced. What are you waiting for? GO!
So, that’s it for today’s post and I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. I just can’t wait to see my mom’s reaction trying out some of the products that I’ll be sharing with her. Shout out to Aveeno for making this possible.
