I’ve been familiar with Aveeno as a brand for a very long time. A few years ago, when I started to research and invest more into my skincare regime, I swore by Aveeno’s foaming facial cleansers. I’m also a huge fan of their calming bath powders…so relaxing!
I had the opportunity to try out some Aveeno products from their Positively Radiant line!
The packaging is what always draws me to Aveeno products. It’s made of this matte cardboard, which really goes along with their whole ‘natural’ theme!
The first thing I’d like to share are these Positively Radiant CC Eye Creams! I received them in two shades – fair/light and medium. Light/fair fit me well, so I gave the medium shade to my mum! The CC creams contain active naturals total soy complex which claims to grant a more radiant look to the skin, fixing tone, texture, dullness, blotchiness, and brown spots!
It works kind of like a concealer. It’s medium coverage, which is impressive because it’s marketed as a tinted moisturizer. It also claims to improve skin over time, concealing dark circles and puffiness around the eyes! The skin around the eyes is quite delicate as well, so we want to make sure to take care of it. This CC cream is also oil-free, hypoallergenic, and non-comedogenic (which means it won’t cause blackheads or irritation by blocking pores)!
The applicator kind of reminds me of a lipgloss tube applicator! The shape allows for it to be applied directly to the under eyes, however I’d recommend applying it with your fingertips as sometimes too much products squeezes out.
I have quite light skin with peach undertones, and the fair-light shade matches my skin tone perfectly. Medium is a slightly darker shade that will suit tanned – medium skin tones! Overall I liked the formula of the CC eye creams – it felt super moisturizing and has good coverage! It retails for $19.99.
Next up, a classic in the Aveeno moisturizing line….
The Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer SPF 15. I absolutely love this moisturizer – I’ve actually purchased it in the past and loved it! It’s a lightweight and moisturizing cream that absorbs quickly into the skin and doesn’t leave an oily residue behind. It also contains Aveeno’s active naturals soy complex to even tone, smooth texture, and soften skin!
I always apply a moisturizer before I apply makeup, and it’s nice to have one that keeps your skin hydrated without feeling oily. It’s quick drying and hypoallergenic, which is great because my skin is quite sensitive to moisturizers! This is currently my day cream, love the light scent and texture. It retails for $21.99
You can find these products at most drug stores / department stores!
Have you tried any Aveeno products? What are your thoughts about the CC cream craze? Have you tried any other tinted moisturisers?
