Thanks to @AveenoUS for sending me these products
I received the Positively Radiant collection from Aveeno to test and review. All opinions are my own.
There are a lot of products in the Aveeno Positively Radiant line from face wipes, cleansers and tone correctors to night creams and moisturizers. I received the exfoliating body wash, body lotion and the dark spot correcting cream.
The body wash comes in a large container with a pop top for easy dispensing. It smells like aloe, which I love and lathers like crazy. A little goes a long way and the formula is a little thick. I love that you can see the exfoliators which are crushed walnuts, in the body wash and you can feel the difference after a shower. My skin was smooth, soft and I noticed a difference after just one use. This body wash is made with soy complex and is hypoallergenic.
The body lotion smells exactly like the body wash, like aloe. It’s a thicker formula which helps ease dry skin without feeling heavy. You will need a fair amount in your hand to feel covered but the bottle is a good size and will last a while. This formula is not greasy either and keeps my skin hydrated all day long. This lotion is also made with total soy complex and is hypoallergenic.
The dark spot corrector threw me for a loop at first. It says that is is made for your neck and chest area but I thought it was for your face because of the size of the bottle. I typically do not have dark spots on my body but I do have them on my face. This product is listed in the BODY section of the Aveeno website so I would not recommend applying this to your face. Your face is much more sensitive than your body and if you apply products to your face that are not meant for your face, you could get clogged pores and breakouts. The formula is a little thicker but spreads out nicely. It smells like a light sunscreen, which I expected. This dark spot corrector has an SPF 15 in it to help decrease the risk of skin cancer. Apply 15 minutes before going out into the sun and re-apply after 2 hours. This dark spot corrector shows results in as little as one week! I apply this to my shoulders to help with the minimal dark spots I have there.
I like to use the same products within a line because most of the time they are created to work together. Shower in the mornings using the exfoliating body wash. After a shower I lather up with the body lotion and add the dark spot corrector to my neck and chest. I also apply this to my shoulders to help with the sun spots. You should always wear a sunscreen even in the Winter months. Sun damage is no joke and the sooner you start protecting your skin, the better off you will be. I recommend an SPF moisturizer under your foundation or a foundation with an SPF in it to protect your face.
Thank you all so much for reading. Until next time,
