Aveeno Fresh Essentials

Over the past few months I have received an overwhelming number of skincare products, so it has taken me quite a bit of time to put them all to the test. Every time I start a new skincare regime I literally pray to the gods that the products don't break me out! However, this time I wasn't too worried. Aveeno is a brand that is known for using Active Naturals technologies that combine the best parts of nature, with science. With this philosophy, Aveeno has created a facial skincare line to help combat the many environmental factors that cause stress to the skin. Enter: Aveeno Fresh Essentials - this line is a new and unique line of skincare products that are formulated to keep what's good for your skin IN and what's bad for your skin OUT.

The line is formulated with anti-oxidant Active Naturals Southernwood Extract and Vitamins A, C and E. The Fresh Essentials line is clinically proven to replenish and retain moisture to tired skin, to help leave the skin looking and feeling refreshed, and radiant. The Southernwood Extract also helps to strengthen the skins moisture barrier, which helps to protect the skin from drying environmental stressors. 


The Daily Nourishing Moisturizer* ($19.99) contains SPF 30 and is a lightweight formula that is clinically proven to replenish moisture to dry skin. My skin it typically fairly oily, but the winter weather has caused my skin to have a few dry patches. This moisturizer was perfect for daily use, and did not cause me to look greasy. I found that it sunk in fairly quickly, and my foundation glided onto my face after applying it.

The Hydrating Night Cream* ($19.99) was formulated to hydrate and replenish the skins moisture barrier while you sleep, so that you wake up with fresh and renewed skin. Although the formula itself is fairly light, I found this cream to be a little too heavy for my skin, as I always woke up with a very shiny face. 

Lastly, the Daily Exfoliating Scrub* ($12.99) is an extremely gentle scrub that helps to exfoliate skin cells with a natural luffa and coconut pulp enriched formula. I did enjoy using this scrub, but  I didn't love it. It did the job of cleaning my skin, but I much prefer using my Clarisonic to exfoliate, and I definitely did not want to over exfoliate my skin. If you are looking for a gentle scrub for daily use, I would recommend that you check out this one! 

The entire line is oil-free, hypoallergenic and non-comodogenic, and has a pleasant Southernwood aroma. I would recommend this line to anyone that has normal, combination or dry skin! Aveeno products are available across Canada at food, drug and mass merchandisers.
