Skincare: 2014 Blogger Challenge

Hey there! My next post is part of topic two in the 2014 blogger challenge. And the post is about: Skincare!

Now, I don’t usually do beauty reviews much because to be honest, I’m not into all that make-up and stuff. Although you might get a lot nails around here, you won’t get a lot of this sort of thing. But I can tell you I do know an awful lot about skincare. I’ve had a form of eczema for a while now, and it just won’t go away. What I’ve disliked most about having it is the fact it has the power to make my skin go really dry, really quickly. So, I’ve had to try a lot of products to help solve this, and by far this one is the best.

The product is called Aveeno and it is easily bought anywhere. I got mine from Boots in the UK. I can’t remember the price, but it is an amazing product. It’s non-greasy and non-unge. It has a smell of sweet almond oil, which I don’t particularly like, but it does not linger at all. After two to three minutes the smell is undetectable anyways. It does exactly what it aims to do: moisturizes like oil and absorbs like a cream. Seconds after spreading it your skin feels soft and will stay that way for up to a number of hours. One application is enough to last all through school. It also comes in a soap-like container so it’s practically impossible to spill. I love it!

I think this cream would be good for teenagers, children, actually all ages and all gender! It’s really handy and I can’t see why anyone else wouldn’t be able to use it. It also isn’t just for rashes, but really just for skincare in general. Also good for any skin tone.

The good side was how well it worked and it was quickly effective. What I didn’t like so much was the smell, and when I looked in the shops there was only this flavour. But it worked too well for the smell to bother me much. And it didn’t linger anyways.

  3. I like Aveeno shower products and lotion, but I've not ever considered using their products on my face. It sounds like you're taking great care of your skin by keeping it simple.

    Thanks for sharing!!!

    1. No problem. This cream in particular is good as body lotion, which is something I should've been more obvious about. But I have yet to try their face creams.

  4. I agree with you about this, Aveeno has some of the products out there. I love the lotions the most, they're very great for skin. Wonderful post.

    1. I don't usually write about this kind of thing often but I do think Aveeno deserved it because I loved how good it was for me, especially because my skin is very dry at times.
