Mmmm, coconut…Aveeno Skin Relief Gentle Scent™ Nourishing Coconut Body Wash and Lotion

Aveeno Skin Relief Gentle Scent™ Nourishing Coconut Body Wash and Lotion

Aveeno Skin Relief Gentle Scent™ Nourishing Coconut Body Wash and Lotion

I look out my window and it’s all white. Snow, ice, sleet….every day, day after day. I walk outside and can’t even catch my breath because of the subzero temperatures. Inside, it’s warm but so dry my skin gets itchy and uncomfortable. I long for the sweet coconut scent of a tropical beach and soft, hydrated skin….and Aveeno comes to rescue!

I’ve loved Aveeno body products for a very long time because I find the oatmeal-based products extremely gentle and soothing. As an Aveeno Ambassador I was recently sent two coconut-scented Aveeno products to test and I was hoping they would help me satisfy my craving for coconut and for soft skin.

Aveeno Skin Relief Gentle Scent™ Nourishing Coconut Body Wash

Aveeno Skin Relief Gentle Scent™ Nourishing Coconut Body Wash

AVEENO® SKIN RELIEF GENTLE SCENT™BODY WASH NOURISHING COCONUT ($7.49)  Typically any product that is gentle for skin should probably not include fragrance, but the Skin Relief Gentle Scents products are an exception. In fact, this scented body wash has been clinically tested and is as gentle as the fragrance-free version, which is great news.

The Skin Relief Gentle Scent Body Wash is soap-free, dye-free, and allergy tested. It cleans skin beautifully with a soft lather that rinses clean but doesn’t leave my skin feeling dry and tight. And the coconut fragrance….YUM! It’s a beautiful scent that isn’t overly sweet, it’s more like fresh coconuts. Oh so good!! After my shower, the perfect winter combo is following this body wash with….

Aveeno Skin Relief Gentle Scent™ Nourishing Coconut Body  Lotion

Aveeno Skin Relief Gentle Scent™ Nourishing Coconut Body Lotion

AVEENO SKIN RELIEF GENTLE SCENT™LOTION NOURISHING COCONUT ($9.99).  This is a light lotion with the same coconut scent, also tested and found to be as gentle as the fragrance-free version. The lotion has the ACTIVE NATURALS® Triple Oat Complex, which soothes irritated, dry skin and leaves skin wonderfully hydrated. Anyone with sensitive dry skin will love this non-greasy body lotion. It makes my skin super soft all day long even in dry winter heat. Like the body wash, the scent is a deep, yummy coconut that doesn’t have that slightly chemical scent that many lotions have. The scent is faint but still there 12 hours later.
I love these affordable and effective body products.  They bring me the scent and the skin of summer!  – Lisa

Top Ten Drugstore Favorites from 2015

Our last Top Ten Tuesday of 2015 contains items we can actually afford, even after Christmas. The ten I picked are products that I’ve used often, some even daily, in the last year. All are favorites. I’ve tried to save you from my repeats (mascara for example) but some are just too good not to share again.

1451339740_413gbp5maul._sx300_ql70_ CHOPSAVER LIP BALM is a new product for me to share with you but one I’ve been using daily the last several weeks. This is one of the most interesting lip balms I’ve tried this year. It was developed by a professional trumpet player, Dan Gosling, who you know really needs his lips being healthy. I have this in Fresh Citrus which has the tiniest hint of orange and contains SPF 15. It comes in natural without a sunscreen but I prefer it having the sunscreen. A winner!! *

1451339854_51mq4dtzy1l._sy300_ql70_BURT’S BEES ALMOND & MILK HAND CREME is different than most of the hand creams that I own. This comes in a jar and is very firm but touch your finger to it and it starts melting to a creamy texture. This is extremely thick, containing beeswax and Vitamin E to both hydrate and shield. I think this makes a great foot cream. I put it on my elbows and on my ankles since those two places get extremely dry for me. The almond scent is light, just a little bit nutty as it’s tempered with the non-fat dry milk. If you wash your hands over and over then this is what you are looking for. *

1451341804_41a-etmeyal._ac_ul160_sr160_160_RoC SMOOTH PERFEXION INSTANT LINE CORRECTOR is one of my favorite RoC products. I was so excited about this when I received it since it’s a much less expensive dupe of Murad InvisiBlur. I do have to use a separate SPF product with RoC Instant Line Corrector but it’s worth it. It’s a blur product that makes your foundation look better than ever. *

1451341017_51z1xx7mmpl._sy300_ql70_RoC DAILY RESURFACING DISKS was just reviewed yesterday. This is a great daily cleanser and exfoliator in one handy pad. While I don’t use them daily, I do use the disks several times a week since they are a gentle exfoliation that I can’t overdo. *

1451340822_31uimzctxjl._sx300_ql70_TWEEZERMAN STAINLESS STEEL SLANT TWEEZERS are an item I use every single day of my life. I’ve used other tweezers but I always return to Tweezerman. They can be sent in for resharpening but I like a brand new fresh tweezers when I get to that point. I’m more likely to drop my tweezers than anything which is why I have so many around (at least 5!!)

1451340168_31fqtxqmjhl._sy300_ql70_MILANI EYESHADOW PRIMER is my favorite drugstore eyeshadow primer. I have this thing about primers and use many different brands. I like to make sure I have enough on hand for an emergency. Milani’s is just as good as the “high price spread”. Don’t start your eye makeup without an eyeshadow primer and Milani’s is as good as they get.

1451340287_21qyq9kbr_2bl._ql70_NYX EYESHADOW BASE IN WHITE PEARL is another alternative eyeshadow primer. The NYX isn’t as convenient to use since it’s in a pot and I need to use a brush to apply it. But the White Pearl is a nice alternative to the nude of most primers. It holds eyeshadow extremely well and gives a lot of depth to certain shades.
1451340014_41gc7-mqdel._sy300_ql70_AVEENO SKIN RELIEF GENTLE SCENT LOTION, the newest addition to the Aveeno line. The product from Aveeno that’s best for sensitive skin is their fragrance free line. But not everyone likes fragrance free so they’ve developed their Skin Relief body wash and lotion in a Nourishing Coconut scent that isn’t overpowering at all. I’ve got two minis of this and they are already in my travel bag. *

1447723035_lasting-finish-25hr_2_product-300x300RIMMEL LASTING FINISH 25 HR FOUNDATION – you are probably tired of me talking about this Rimmel Foundation but every time I wear it I’m amazed again at how great it is. It’s the only drugstore foundation I own. I chose well (091 Light Ivory) from the 7 shades available since I don’t have to play with the color to have it match. And at $6.97 it’s a steal.

1433204538_07366PHYSICIANS FORMULA EYE BOOSTER 2-IN-1 LASH BOOSTING EYELINER + SERUM is another product that you’ve probably heard me rave about more than once. Finding a great liquid liner isn’t the easiest thing to do but finding one in brown at the drugstore is almost impossible. I’ve tried most brands that I could buy and nothing compares to the PF for me. The color is a true brown and the brush is sturdy and gives me the thin line I love.

#AveenoDailyChallenge for Healthy Skin Month

I’m a little late posting about National Healthy Skin Month but it’s never too late to try to improve our skin. Aveeno issued a challenge to their bloggers to use their duo of Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Body Wash and Daily Moisturizing Lotion for 3 weeks to remind us about the importance of taking care of our skin during these colder months. As an Aveeno Ambassador I was thrilled to receive these.

Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Body Wash and Lotion #AveenoDailyChallenge

Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Body Wash and Lotion #AveenoDailyChallenge

My three weeks is almost up but it actually started more than three weeks ago with the Daily Moisturizing Lotion. Now I have one in both bathrooms rather than just one. As many of you know, I prefer fragrance free products so the Aveeno Lotion has been wonderful for me. I’ve been using it for months. I love how nicely this absorbs and keeps my skin moisturized. Even if I feel like using a fragranced body moisturizer on my lower torso I’ll still use my Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion on my upper body.

With the Aveeno Body Wash in the shower even my husband now uses it. It’s both gentle and hydrating and it doesn’t smell girly so he can enjoy it without making fun of my fetishes.

Aveeno + Target #BestLovedBeauty with giveaway

As we come to the end of October there’s still time to get to Target to pick up all the missing Halloween treats, last minute decorations, the costume that your kids decide that they have to have even if they have one already. While you are there I want you to check this end cap with all the J&J products that have been on special this month.

Look for this Target End Cap

Look for this Target End Cap

All stores should have this end cap and this week is Aveeno’s turn to for an extra discount of 5% off on top of their already low prices. And if you have the Target CC then you’ll automatically get your 5% off when you use that.

Aveeno Positively Radiant found on the Target End Cap

As an Aveeno Ambassador I’ve been provided with 5 of their wonderful Positively Radiant products and the opportunity to have 2 Beauty Info Zone readers win a $50 Target gift card. In addition there will be two more winners for the Aveeno Positively Radiant CC Creams – so read on to learn more about some of my favorites from Aveeno.

The entire Aveeno Positively Radiant collection of facial products is formulated to target all 5 Factors of Radiance: tone, texture, dullness, blotchiness, and brown spots. Your skin will look bright and luminous with the use of Positively Radiant.

Aveeno Positively Radiant

Aveeno Positively Radiant

Let me start by telling you about Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub. This scrub is gentle enough to use daily yet it’s totally effective to help improve your skintone, the texture and clarity of your skin. If you want to see some brighter and more radiant skin then this reasonably priced product is one to consider. It combines a moisture-rich soy extract with smooth, round microbeads to gently exfoliate. Even if you skin is sensitive you won’t have a problem with this scrub.

Your next step in your beauty routine is Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer with Broad Spectrum with either SPF30 or SPF50. This daytime moisturizer will meet all your needs while being oil-free, hypoallergenic, and noncomedogenic. You have your choice of which sunscreen is best for you with Positively Radiant. It contains ACTIVE NATURALS® Total Soy Complex and natural light diffusers. You’ll be radiant all right and at the perfect price.aveeno positively radiant daily moisturizer

When you want to color correct the answer is often a tinted moisturizer. Aveeno now has their CC Cream with Broad Spectrum SPF30 available in two shades: Fair to Light and Medium. I didn’t swatch these since they are the second place products in our giveaway. My skin is very fair and Fair to Light is a little too dark for me but if I mix it with the Daily Moisturizing Lotion it becomes sheerer and more adaptable. From the colors I’ve seen online of Medium it’s a lot darker and would suit approximately NW/NC25-30 skin and darker. It’s very similar to the Daily Moisturizing Cream but with the addition of the tint. Same great ACTIVE NATURALS® Total Soy Complex and natural light diffusers but a product that will give you coverage.aveeno positively radiant cc creams

It’s the end of the day and it’s time to remove your makeup and Aveeno has the answer to that too. They have created a variety of makeup wipes. On the end cap at Target you’ll find Aveeno Positively Radiant Makeup Remover Wipes ready to remove all your makeup to reveal softer and smoother skin. Like the other Positively Radiant products this too contains the moisture-rich natural soy extract. Whatever you do be sure you cleanse your face at the end of the day! This is one of the most important steps of keeping your skin in the best shape. When I’m really tired these Makeup Remover Wipes are a necessity. Quick, easy, and efficient.

Thank you Aveeno for fragrance free products

As an Aveeno ambassador I’m lucky enough to receive products from them for testing. The list of what I love from Aveeno is long and it’s just gotten a lot longer. Aveeno is used by everyone in my extended family but I’ve hidden two products from them and don’t want to share. ULTRA-CALMING NOURISHING NIGHT CREAM is one I know my husband won’t steal from me but DAILY MOISTURIZING LOTION SHEER HYDRATION in this fragrance free version is one he would. But they are mine!!!

Aveeno Ultra-Calming Nourishing Night Cream

Aveeno Ultra-Calming Nourishing Night Cream

I have been using the Aveeno Ultra-Calming Nourishing Night Cream with great success. It’s one of the softest, smoothest moisturizers I’ve ever used. It totally melts into my skin like magic. When I scoop some out I want to slather my entire face and neck with it because it’s like applying silk.

Aveeno Ultra-Calming Nourishing Night Cream

Aveeno Ultra-Calming Nourishing Night Cream

But silk doesn’t have the great ingredients that this night cream has. Aveeno is known for using ACTIVE NATURALS® Oat and Calming Feverfew® since they are two natural ingredients that are clinically proven for sensitive skin. You may not think you have sensitive skin but if you have irritation and redness then it’s more sensitive than you realize. The ACTIVE NATURALS® Oat and Calming Feverfew® nourish your skin leaving it smoother and more hydrated.

Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion

My body needs hydration, especially after playing outside with my little ones and that’s where Aveeno’s Daily Moisturizing Lotion Sheer Hydration comes in. This fragrance free lotion is another newer product from Aveeno ($6.99-9.99). When this was sent I was in heaven, fragrance free heaven. I’ve been using their original Daily Moisturizing Lotion but just on my torso. I needed something to keep in my downstairs bathroom to help moisturize during the day and Aveeno must have read my mind. When this arrived it came with a small packet of tissues to do a hand test. They wanted to prove how quickly it absorbs. I applied it and instantly used one of the tissues and no particles stuck to my hands.

My hands feel moisturized and stay that way. While Aveeno says it moisturizes for 24 hours, I wash my hands dozens of times a day so I like to apply it often. If I apply it before bed that’s when I see the long lasting effect. Since there’s no fragrance it doesn’t interfere with anything I’ve used day or night.

I’m so happy with this line of new products from Aveeno. I hope they add to it with more fragrance free products since these two prove that they can use all of their best ingredients like their soothing oatmeal formula and feverfew and still have excellent results. Thank you Aveeno for making me so happy.– Marcia

Top Ten Sunscreens for 2015 – eyes, lips, body and face

Welcome to the 2015 version of favorite sunscreens. I’ve done both a Makeup Wars in 2013 on favorites and a Top Ten Tuesday in 2014. You’ll see some products that remain the same and some new ones. We can’t forget any part of our body and I didn’t want to forget children since I go through more sunscreen for them than I do for myself. — Marcia
1435625486_1115290AVEENO® Natural Protection Lotion Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 50  A lot of Aveeno products have fragrance so when I am sent one that is fragrance free I’m over the moon. I find myself using this for my body all the time. It’s $10.99 but I often find coupons or specials for it. This has become a staple for both my husband and myself.
1435625420_serum_510x600SUPERGOOP CITY SERUM is the one I want for my face. I buy this every summer. This is fragrance free and gentle on my skin. It wears really well under foundation and provides anti-aging benefits and SPF 30.
1435625218_eyecream_510x600SUPERGOOP ADVANCED AGING EYE CREAM* is another product that was on last year’s list. This SPF 37 sunscreen is a great undereye protectant. The applicator makes it easy to apply and is cooling at the same time. Supergoop is really a top notch brand.
1435625098_murad-invisiblur-300x259MURAD INVISIBLUR PERFECTING SHIELD* isn’t a sunscreen per se but with SPF 30 it’s great under foundation. It gives a totally clear sunscreen protection while also blurring imperfections. There are many days I use this and not an additional SPF protect.
1435625029_algenist-tmALGENIST REPAIRING TINT RADIANCE MOISTURIZER with SPF 30* is one of the foundations that I’ve been using a lot lately. Recently a friend blogged about it and how it totally changed her skin so out it came again. I’d forgotten just how wonderful it was. It comes in 4 shades and I wear it in Light. I love getting amazing skincare benefits along with hiding my redness and sunspots.
1435624971_6062_lg_1LATHER BROAD SPECTRUM SPF 15 LIP BALM is what I discovered after I started using the Lather Tinted Lip Balms. I like the spearmint the best but it’s great to try the 3 pack with citrus, spearmint and unscented since I need lip balm in every purse or pocket.
1435624891_balmfamily_510x6001SUPERGOOP FUSION LIP BALM SPF 30 is the one I like when I’m at the pool or splashpad with my babies. Even though I try not to be in direct sunlight, they love it. This squeeze tube comes in 2 flavors (mint and acai) with mint being my fave.
1435624812_1115092 AVEENO® Baby Natural Protection Lotion Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 50* is one of my main sunscreen for the kids. My granddaughter is 20 months old and she adores running around after her brother outside. I need sunscreen for them and this Aveeno is a pleasure to use. She doesn’t squirm when I apply it on her and it spreads easily. Bright sun or overcast days still need sunscreen and this is a great reasonably priced alternative.
1435624755_broad_spectrum_spf50_mineral_sunscreen_2015MUSTELA BROAD SPECTRUM MINERAL SPF 50 SUNSCREEN* is new to me and from the minute it arrived I knew it was perfect for my two little loves. This has both UVA and UVB protection in a mineral base and no fragrance.
1435624704_broad_spectrum_spf50_sun_stick.jpg.pagespeed.ce.dats3hfv_sMUSTELA BROAD SPECTRUM MINERAL SUNSCREEN STICK with SPF 50* is the one I let my grandson use. He loves rubbing the stick on himself and I finally have a way of applying sunscreen on him without a big struggle. Of course I sneak the Mustela lotion on the parts of his body he can’t reach. This is a win-win situation.

Don’t go on Spring Break without these

Top Ten Tuesday is going on Spring Break. We had to decide what we’d take along and I decided a beach vacation would be in order just about now. No temperatures fluctuating between snow, rain and warmth. Nothing to think about but relaxation. First things I’d take are my iPad and iPhone. After that I’d chose some favorites like the items shown.
1428281330__9322062SUNGLASSES – Do not leave home without sunglasses. This pair is Kate Spade New York Cat Eye in Translucent Blush and I’d love to own them. I have more limited choices because I have to have my RX but this would be the pair I’d pick if I didn’t.
1428280712_1115290SUNSCREEN – I think sunglasses are important but I think that sunscreen is totally vital. You need sunscreen no matter where you are even if it’s Antarctica! I like this AVEENO® Natural Protection Lotion Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 50 because it’s fragrance free and can be used on face and body. “Formulated with ACTIVE NATURALS® Oat Extract and mineral ingredients (Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide), this sunscreen forms a protective barrier on top of the skin that scatters UVA/UVB rays for superior sun protection. It soothes sensitive skin and is oil free, fragrance free, hypoallergenic, and water resistant for 80 minutes.”*
1428280615_6079_reg_1LIP COLOR AND PROTECTION – Your lips can get sunburned too so you need to protect them. I have a lot of lip balms but the one going on my vacation this time is by LATHER. Their tinted lip balms have everything I need including a light enough color to feel comfortable wearing day and/or night.*
1428280526_cc_cream_32ml_cap_medium_1IT COSMETICS YOUR SKIN BUT BETTER CC+ CREAM WITH SPF 50 – No surprise that I chose this I’m sure. I can’t stop raving about it and I wouldn’t travel without it.
1428280451_palette-bronzette_swatch-03jan15-webPIXI PALETTE BRONZE – This is everything you need in one fabulous palette. Bronzer, highlighter, blush and 12 choices of shadows. You can look different every day of your trip, you can go from day to night, you’ve got it all. (And you can try to win one through 4/17 in the BIZ giveaway).*
1428280391_2274527__detail_?1428280391TRAVEL BRUSHES – I have a lot of travel brush sets but I’d still love to own this exclusive to Ulta set from IT COSMETICS. For $50 look at what you’d getYour Superheroes Full-Size Travel Brush Set

  • Unstoppable Powder: Plush, large domed brush head for even powder application
  • Seamless Foundation: Dense, tapered brush head in flat paddle shape

  • Flawless Liner & Brow: Firm, flat angled brush

1428280267_fligh3000611456_q1_1-2._ql90_ux336_EMPTY CONTAINERS FOR YOUR OWN PRODUCTS – This kit is sold on Shopbop and it’s by Flight 001. There are 8 containers so you can put in your hair products and skincare if you don’t have those in small sizes. The plastic bag that holds it all will save your clothes from spills.
1428280128_madew4143330443_q1_1-0._ql90_ux336_SUN HAT – Now I look pretty bad in a hat but that doesn’t mean I don’t think they are fabulous and that I’d love one. This particular one is made by Madewell and it’s a pieced straw hat. It’s $52 but starting today Shopbop has a Friends + Family Event and you can get 25% off most products.
1428280057_spuns2003611411_q1_1-0._ql90_ux336_SCARF OR SHAWL – A large enough scarf or shawl will be so useful on spring break or any time. This Shopbop beauty by Subtle Luxury is a light gauze in pink leopard. How perfect would this be with my blush sunglasses? There are a lot of great scarfs including a $195 Tory Burch one that I’d love. This one is just $55 and with that 25% off it’s a steal.
1428279994_adler2039720988_q1_1-0._ql90_ux336_THE PERFECT BEACH TOTE – How can you travel without a tote to hold it all? This Jonathon Adler one caught my eye and it’s one I’d love to carry all summer. $98 at Shopbop which would make it $74.50 hmmm!

I’m ready for my trip – at least in my head – and can’t wait to see what the other Top Ten bloggers will have for me to buy!! — Marcia
