Positively Radiant with AVEENO

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for AVEENO® POSITIVELY RADIANT®. I received product samples as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

Aveeno Positively Radiant

All moms want to look beautiful, don’t they?  Of course they do, they’re women!  Women want to feel beautiful…positively radiant even.  If you’d like to feel a bit better about your skin, check out AVEENO’s new Positively Radiant Collection.

AVEENO has always seemed like the cashmere of skin care products to me.  I don’t know if it’s the sound of the word or just its association with quality, but I love using AVEENO.  I can still remember the first oatmeal bath product I used from AVEENO as a child.  I was so intrigued that it used natural ingredients even then.  I mean, oatmeal for the bath?  Being a kid, I thought that was great!  Now, as an adult I’m learning about the benefits of soy in their products.

Aveeno Makeup Removing Wipes

AVEENO is a brand that I use for myself and it’s the only lotion I allow near my kids.  It is known for using active naturals ingredients, and I’ve recently been enjoying the new AVEENO Positively Radiant Collection, which is formulated to help even out skin tone and texture.  The line is made to make dull skin brighter and “more radiant.” While I don’t like to consider my skin “dull,” I have to admit that it is.  I’m attracted to anything that illuminates or brightens my skin.  The make up removing wipes were refreshing and removed my make up in a breeze.  I am addicted to these!   The daily moisturizer has a smooth texture, a soft scent, and SPF 15!

The Total Soy Complex helps to visibly transform the 5 FACTORS OF RADIANCE® including:

  • –  Tone
  • –  Texture
  • –  Dullness
  • –  Blotchiness
  • –  Brown Spots

The benefits of soy were initially discovered when workers who regularly handled soy in Asia’s soybean factories found that their hands were especially smooth and even toned.  How neat is that?  AVEENO scientists devised a way to process soybeans that retains the integrity of the proteins to provide immediate and long-term skin benefits.

Naturally, we all want to look good, and we can naturally. I really like AVEENO and their other lines for their natural elements. Some days I just don’t feel radiant, so it always helps to have an extra boost from AVEENO. 

If you’d like to check out more about the line you can look at Aveeno’s website, and of course you can buy them through Target (one of my favorite places to shop!).

Back to School Skin Care with Healthy Essentials

This post is part of the HEALTHY ESSENTIALS® 2014 program by Johnson & Johnson Consumer Companies, Inc. and The Motherhood, who sent me a box of products and compensated me for my time. Opinions, experiences and photos shared here are all my own, and I hope you enjoy them.

Back to school is a great time to reevaluate your schedules, priorities, habits,….and skin care routine.  Back to skin care!  A good skin care regimen determines how your face glows or doesn’t glow, how your make up lays, and more importantly how you feel in your skin.

Welcome to Skin Care 101!  I’ll help you get your skin back in shape just in time for fall.

For Soft Hands

  • – Let’s start with the basics, moisturizing your hands.  Anyone can get botox but your hands will always show your age if you don’t moisturize well.  Keep a pump bottle of lotion near all of your sinks as a visual reminder to moisturize every time you wash your hands.
  • – Wash your pillowcases at least once a week.  All of that oil, dirt, make up, and drool that is on your pillow ends up back on your face.
  • – Wash your make up brushes at least weekly.  Daily is even better.

RoC Deep Wrinkle

  • – Use a killer night cream.  I’ve recently given RoC Deep Wrinkle Cream a try and I’m in love.  It’s very light weight but leaves my skin feeling very moisturized.

RoC Night Cream

  •  – Beauty rest may sound like something out of a fairy-tale but it’s far from it.  Getting 6-8 hours of sleep a night will help keep your skin looking clear and refreshed.
  • – Even if you don’t shower immediately after a workout it’s important to wash the dirt, sweat, and oil from your pores.  Try Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Wash with Pink Grapefruit.  It’s refreshing, especially in the morning or after a workout!
  • – Gently exfoliate.  Aveeno’s Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Scrub is effective but gentle enough to use every day.
  • – When you get a spot or two of acne, keep calm and use Clean & Clear to well, clean and clear your skin.

Class dismissed!
