I am a fan of Aveeno skin and hair care. That is hardly a secret! This budget-minded brand may appear in drugstores and mass market retailers, but what is inside the bottles could very well be at ease in high end boutiques and department stores. And it is what is inside a bottle or jar, that really counts. After reviewing thousands of products, my personal choice is to find products that work (for me) regardless of price, packaging or cachet.
While skincare might not always seem to be a glamorous gift, for the holidays, why not give someone a trio of skin-nurturing and protecting treats from Aveeno skincare from their positively ageless line: Day Youth Perfecting Moisturizer SPF 30; Lifiting & Firming Eye Cream; and Daily Exfoliating Cleanser. You can bring in the gift at under $50.00!
Aveeno is known for using what they call active naturals, to help fight the aging signs of sun damage, protect against and reduce sun damage, and smooth out lines & wrinkles. These products feature an antioxidant natural shiitake complex and an advanced SPF 30 complex that protects against aging UVA and burning UVB rays, helping to protect you from future damage. as well. First cultivated in Asia over 1,000 years ago, Shiitake mushrooms were recognized by ancient herbalists for their medicinal purposes, and the benefits are still significant for today’s products.
These Aveeno products are also good for sensitive skin, and due to the high SPF in the moisturizer, a great choice for anyone who won’t wear an additional sunblock (but remember to re-apply thoroughly throughout the day as no SPF protection lasts forever). Sun-protecting actives in the moisturizer include: 3% Avobenzone, 12% homosalate, 5% octisalate, 1.7% octocrylene, and 3% oxybenzone.
Clean looking pump bottles and a lightweight scent and feel on the skin, make these products great for men as well as women. I wish there was SPF in the eye cream, but I am guessing that it might run into the eyes and become an irritant. The new, Positively Ageless Daily Exfoliating Cleanser is oil free, soap free, hypoallergenic and won’t clog your pores. During the Winter months when wind and dry heat make skin even more scaly and itchy, gentle exfoliation is a must. And the handy plastic pump means you can use it in the shower without worrying about it shattering.
The gift of beautiful, youthful-looking skin is priceless. Treat yourself, too.You can get Aveeno products at mass market retailers and drug stores, but also learn more at http://www.aveeno.com/
