In January of this year, I had the surprise of my life when I was asked to be an Aveeno brand ambassador! Over the last 10 months I’ve had the opportunity to try some amazing products, and Aveeno has showered me with great gifts, and even remembered my birthday! They are a great company, and I absolutely love them and what they stand for.
I recently approached them because my uber sensitive skin (which drives me more than nuts) was not reacting well to stress, the weather change, etc, and so I asked them what I should try. They promptly wrote back to me and told me to try their Ultra Calming wipes, foaming cleanser and daily moisturizer. I received the products right away, but I wanted to wait a while before I posted because I wanted to see how well my skin reacted to it.
I must admit I am really enjoying Aveeno’s Ultra Calming line. It has really improved the look, tone and feel of my skin and best of all, my skin no longer looks or feels dry! The Aveeno Ultra-Calming wipes, foaming cleanser and daily moisturizer with spf 15 all have ACTIVE NATURALS Calming Feverfew and glycerin to moisturize skin and visibly reduce redness and calm any irritation. They’re non-comedogenic and have been tested by dermatologists. The Ultra-Calming foaming cleanser is oil-free, soap-free, non-comedogenic, and best part of all – fragrance free! Those of us with sensitive skin know how tough fragrance can be on our skin type.
Aveeno Ultra-Calming Makeup Removing Wipes are $6.99 for a pack of 25 wipes, Aveeno Ultra-Calming Cleanser is $6.99 for a 6 fl oz. pump and the Aveeno Ultra-Calming Daily Moisturizer with SPF 15 is $16.99 for a 4 fl oz. pump.
A few weeks ago Aveeno celebrated National Oatmeal Day! But to me, EVERY SINGLE DAY is National Oatmeal Day!!! I eat oatmeal on the daily, I love, love, love oatmeal. Every morning I drink a healthy smoothie, and make oatmeal with milk. I then top it with Greek yogurt, fresh berries, a little raw honey and a sprinkle of cinnamon. It is such a delicious nutritious breakfast and it definitely keeps me full until lunch.
As I mentioned, Aveeno is very generous when it comes to gifts! For National Oatmeal Day, they sent me a box of delicious cookies from Eleni’s in NYC, a beautiful Mochila Bag which was handmade by “indigenous women from La Guajira (Colombia)”, a bag of Mix My Own #AVEENOLOVESOAT National Oatmeal Day Mix Oatmeal (Mixmyown.com), Aveeno Soothing Bath Treatment and their trademark Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion, which is adored by millions throughout the world, especially fellow brand ambassador, Jennifer Aniston!
Do you know how healthy it is to take an oatmeal bath? According to Aveeno, “Oatmeal baths have long been recommended for people with a variety of sensitive skin conditions. That’s because the special properties of oats give it an enhanced ability to absorb moisture and relieve dry, itchy, irritated skin.”
When my grandmother broke out in a horrible rash after taking melatonin a few years ago, her physician suggested that she only use Aveeno products to clear up her skin, and believe it or not, she was looking and feeling better in no time! Aveeno has a fabulous reputation not just with their consumers, but with practicing physicians as well. As always, I’m happy to have partnered with Aveeno and look forward to sharing more helpful tips and products soon.
Disclosure: I received these products free as an Aveeno Ambassador. I was not compensated in any way for my review.
