When I think of Aveeno it brings back an Nostalgic moment for me. I can remember being younger and seeing my younger sister come down with the Chicken Pox; in order to cope with the constant itching my mom would soak her in a Aveeno Oatmeal Bath. Just so she could get some sort of relief. When I was sent the Aveeno Fresh Essentials line all I could think of was if the Oatmeal bath gave such immediate gratification then this line would as well.
The Aveeno Fresh Essentials line of skin care is to help aid in keeping your skin looking its best in the daytime and nigh time with active naturals Southern wood Aurone.
The Southern wood plant contains natural combinations of sugars and polyphenols to provide the skin with active antioxidants that help the skin restore itself and its moisture so that our skin looks its best and its protected from all environmental stressors. More importantly the fresh essentials line is Non-Comedogenic, hypoallergenic and Oil free.
I have been playing around with this line for a little while and I will say that I was completely surprised at how well the work for my skin. As of lately due to the winter weather and extreme cold I have noticed that I have to layer on the moisturizers in order for my skin to feel comfortable. As well I am allergic to SPF and being that the daily nourishing moisturizer has an SPF of 30 I didn’t experience any reaction, it didn’t feel heavy nor did it leave that nasty white cast that higher SPF products leave behind. The daily nourishing moisturizer was easy to blend into my skin the scent was very soft and not over powering and there was no stickiness left behind.
“in a clinical study. 100% of Women who used the Fresh essentials line showed improvement in the look of their stressed skin, including dark under eyes, dry patches and dullness”
The Daily exfoliating scrub is amazing. I love a good scrub and they are essential all year round but especially in the winter. WHY? because we have so much dead skin that gets left behind it starts to look really bad on the face really fast. The daily exfoliating scrub is a thick consistency which is what I love. It is enriched with natural luffa and coconut pulp that is soft enough to use everyday and rough enough to remove dirt and other impurities from deep within the pores. I loved how clean and fresh my face felt after washing but not dry and tight. The texture of my face was smoother and didn’t have that yucky winter dullness that I have started to see.
Now hydration is super important but its critical this time of year. The hydrating night cream is absolutely amazing, its oil free therefore with the heaviness of a night cream I didn’t need to worry about it clogging my pores. I love it so much I really wanted to wear it in the daytime because its heavy enough to shield my face for this terror of a winter.
Overall my impression of the Fresh Essential line is great the prices are not bad either given the fact that Aveeno is one of those brands that have been around for quite a number of years. What are your thoughts on this brand? If you had one item to choose to try what would it be? Let me know in the comments below.
