|Aveeno Ultra-Calming Foaming Cleanser and Moisturizer|
I hope that Aveeno never discontinues this Ultra-Calming line. I rotate my facial products constantly but I always have these two around. The Aveeno Ultra-Calming Foaming Cleanser fulfills my need to feel clean but never irritates my skin. If my cheeks are mighty red, this is one of the few items that does not aggravate that redness and over time calms it down. Used in combination with the Aveeno Ultra-Calming Daily Moisturizer with SPF 15, it's a daytime duo I may never replace.
I've tried at least one other product from the line, the moisturizer for nighttime but that didn't work too well for me. I disliked the texture, the odor and I had a hard time spreading it over the skin without rubbing it in. Rubbing is super bad for the skin on my face, especially when it's red and irritated. It hurts! Thankfully, there are methods to keep the irritation at bay and ensure that I'm always ready to face the day, makeup or no makeup.
I guess it's only natural to get wrinkles in your thirties and I've been trying to find ways to keep that in check as well. So once in awhile, allow me to feature the results of my product testing. I do buy the products that I will be featuring but I also rely on free product samples that I get with makeup purchases. I don't get paid to test any of these things! But as I allow my bathroom to be a laboratory, my only aim is to share my experiences in hopes that none of my friends will ever have to shell out for total junk or splurge on an item that makes promises it can't keep.
For now, let me devote one week to skincare. Let the search begin!
