Aveeno, Take me away!

Daughter:  Skin care simply drives me wild!  With all the many choices available how is one suppose to choose?  Every brand has their own line with multiple products that treat everything from fine lines to dark circles to sagging skin.  I ,for one, have always been an Olay fan, especially their Regenerist line, every product I tried I liked!  But that all changed about two weeks ago.

I had just ran out of my day and night cream and decided it was time to step out of my box.  I look up at the TV and low and behold, there’s Jennifer Aniston telling me how wonderful the Absolutely Ageless line from Aveeno is.  I start thinking, wow, of course I want to look just like Jennifer Aniston (who doesn’t) and if I start using Aveeno products I can!!  I love the little tricks I tell myself like that.  You know, like when you find a famous person with hair that you want so you take it into the hair dresser and tell her that’s the cut you want because you just know when you get out of that chair you will look exactly like that famous person!!

My next trip to the store I went on a hunt for the Aveeno skin care line.  I was pleasantly surprised to find they had a starter kit with the daily moisturizer and night cream.  This was perfect for I could try it out before buying the full size products.  The packaging insisted I’d have younger, healthier looking skin in just 1 week!  Wow, I would soon be on my way to looking just like Jennifer Aniston and in just 1 week…I could hardly contain my excitement!

Well guess what???  It’s now been two weeks and I do not look any more like Jennifer Aniston than I did two weeks ago!!  I know you all are in utter shock at this new development, as well as I am!  But, I do have to say my skin is looking fabulous!!  Both creams are thicker than I am use to but I think it has to be thicker in order to hold all the great anti-aging and hydrating elements that my skin is in need of!

At first contact with my skin, it absorbs in quickly with no greasy residue. The smell is quite delightful that makes me look forward to applying it!  I wake in the morning wanting to rub my face due to it’s silky feel!  Not only does my face feel softer, it also looks more refreshed and plump!  My skin’s elasticity has improved and I find that my laugh lines are much softer!  And now that my skin is more hydrated, my make-up goes on more smoothly and has a better appearance.

I have never used a product with the Active Natural Blackberry Complex so I’m thinking that is what makes these products so fabulous! I totally feel pampered each and every time I use them!  If you’d like to give them a try, which I highly recommend, you can find the starter kit here!  They may not make you look like Jennifer Aniston but you will definitely be left with an amazing, refreshed face!

Mother:I have used Aveeno body lotion for years and swear by it.  But, face wise I am always changing my day cream.  I tend to buy way before I run out of a product so was I ever surprised last week when my day cream ran out and I opened my new package.  It was the Aveeno Absolutely Ageless day cream.  Daughter had been raving about this product for the last week and I had it in my cupboard just waiting for a test drive.  I have to agree with her it is wonderful.  My face is a little older than daughters’ but it does smooth out my fine lines and leave my skin silky smooth.

I love my night cream, which if you have read one of my other reviews is Andalou.  But, after trying Absolutely Ageless day cream will have to try the night cream.

We both bought this product with our own money and have not been paid to review it.  If you order from above yes we will make something.

      I am a big Aveeno fan myself. I have used other Aveeno face products but love this new one.

  1. I’ve tried Aveeno products off and on .. and I do like them, but never seem to stick to the line as there’s so much ‘stuff’ to try these days 🙂

      I understand that. For years I used Lancome but as time has gone on I have branched out to less costly face products, but still go back to Lancome when they are having a special.

  2. I’m so glad you linked this to Party at My Place and shared your thoughts on it. I have been wanting to try it. I’m a fan of Aveeno due mostly to having sensitive skin and I’m allergic to everything. Excited to that it comes in a smaller set to try. Very excited about his!

  3. Hi ladies! I haven’t tried any Aveeno moisturisers as yet – quite like their cleansers and scrubs though. Thanks for this review – always delighted to hear thoughts on not so expensive skin care xxx

      I have used the body lotion for years but now am loving the day cream. Plan I getting the night cream today.

  4. Great Post and review! I have used Aveeno for years on and off, normally when it goes on sale I’d pick it up. Loved their body lotions the most. It’s great that they have a sample package to give their stuff a try!

      Yes I always like it when I don’t have to purchase a large amount in case I don’t care for it.

      Thank you for stopping by. I got the Aveeno night cream and am very happy with it.
