Aveeno has been a brand that I have trusted for many years. I remember my mom buying Aveeno oatmeal bath for us as kids when we had chicken pox. When Influenster contacted me about joining their Aveeno campaign, I jumped at the chance to try a product I might not normally ever think to try.
Unlike my mom, I wasn’t blessed with incredible skin. I had (have) acne, and some age spots. I wear makeup – but some of those “spots” bug me – I’m 32, I shouldn’t have age spots!
I was sent Aveeno Positively Radiant Intensive Night Cream. I was intrigued by the claim that it can even your skin tone, and lighten dark spots. So far I have used the cream nightly, and have noticed some differences. The skin under my eyes isn’t as dark. This could be attributed to JUST using the night cream, but I think that combined with actually get more sleep has helped tremendously. I noticed I didn’t have to use as much concealer in the mornings the last few days to cover the dark circles.
The active soy complex has been used for centuries in traditional chinese medicine to even skin tone, and reduce blotchiness. Aveeno is formulated with ACTIVE NATURALS® Total Soy Complex and vitamin B3. Its a bit pricey for what I would normally buy, BUT – I am a firm believer that if you find a product that works great for you – buy it no matter what the price and make sure you use it!
Other items on note that were important to me:
- It wasn’t overly perfume or strong scented. There is NOTHING I hate more than smelling something medicinal all night long (only time this is good is the winter when you need some menthol vapor rub to clean your sinuses). The Aveeno Positively Radiant Intensive Night Cream has a light scent, almost non-existent!
- It isn’t oily. This was one of my main concerns. I have “combo” skin – oily in the”T-zone” and I don’t need to add more oil to that. I immediately felt the cream soak into my skin – almost like my skin was thirsty! I liked that putting it on – it soaked in and didn’t leave my skin feeling weird (oily, sticky). Patrick even kissed my forehead after I put it on (maybe 15 minutes later), and didn’t say anything about it.
You can purchase Aveeno Positively Radiant Intensive Night Cream at most national retailers/mass market stores, as well as through the Aveeno website.
