Review: Aveeno Fresh Essentials

I've only started using moisturizers in my 20's, and more frequently religiously after I turned 25. Not only does moisturizing protect our skin by creating a barrier, shielding your skin from the toxins in the air and keeping the good stuff in, it also helps fight wrinkles.

A moisturizer can help decrease visible wrinkles by nearly 30%. Of course, along with moisturizing, we have to protect our skin from the beautiful, warm sun too.

It's been a few weeks since I started using the Aveeno Fresh Essentials line of skin care products, and I must say that I really enjoy them (and have fallen in love with one of them)!

Aveeno Fresh Essentials Daily Exfoliating Scrub

What I like most about this scrub is that it's a little thicker, like a cream and it's actually coconut pulp and natural luffa that creates the scrub (thank you for not contributing to the plastic that's already endangering our marine life!)

This scrub is definitely gently enough to use on a daily basis, however I do prefer a slightly rougher exfoliator, and since I use a Clarisonic the rest of the time, this just doesn't cut it for me.

I would highly recommend this to someone with sensitive skin and who can't use the rougher face scrubs.

Aveeno Fresh Essentials Daily Moisturizer SPF30

I love moisturizers that have SPF! Even in the winter months, it's very important to wear SPF. The sun may not feel as warm on your skin, but it it's still there and it also reflects off the snow and projects harmful rays.

I've been applying it every morning after my wash. No break-outs or irritation, no pilling and absorbs quickly. The only issue I have is that I seem to get a little more oily in my t-zone compared to normal. Hmm. Maybe my skin doesn't like it as much as I want it to.

Aveeno Fresh Essentials Night Cream

Wow. Love at first application. And still is my favourite after a few weeks.

This is a thick, but not heavy, night cream. I used it nightly after cleansing with my Clarisonic and a little goes a long way. My skin just absorbs it and my skin is left feeling smooth and moisturized. The best part is that I don't wake up oily in the morning. My skin's been feeling great since using this! I've tossed my old night cream since I've met Aveeno Fresh Essentials Night Cream. Truly a match made in heaven.

Aveeno products can be purchased in a wide variety of stores. I've personally seen them at Shoppers ranging from $13.99 - $20.99
