Aveeno, a leader in skin care has always been a favorite in this house. My daughter has suffered from eczema since she was an infant and Aveeno makes some wonderful products for treatment of it and products for everyone to use. I was sent an assortment of Aveeno products to try out on my tired winter skin.
Among the products I was sent, I was also sent an Eczema Care Kit. This kit contains an oatmeal bath and cream made especially for skin irritated by eczema. My daughter went quite a while without a breakout, but with the temps dipping low and the wind picking up, she soon had a minor breakout. She gets it on her knees, tummy and the insides of her wrists. For our family, it is super hereditary. My brother had it the whole time he and I were growing up and I felt so bad for him. His skin would get so dry, it would actually crack and bleed.
In the Kit, there were 5 oatmeal baths and the tube of cream. This is an amazing set up for anyone that suffers from eczema!
In the shipment, I received:
- Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Body Wash
- Aveeno Skin Relief Body Wash
- Aveeno Positively Nourishing Energizing Pomegranate Grapefruit Cream
- Aveeno Active Naturals Skin Relief Overnight Cream
- Aveeno Active Naturals Daily Moisturizing Lotion
- Aveeno Eczema Skin Care Kit
I loved the creams. I have said before that I am more of a cream person than a lotion person, but I really loved the Aveeno Positively Nourishing Energizing Pomegranate Grapefruit Cream. The smell was crisp, clean and it truly did feel energizing. I found the creams to be non-greasy feeling and the moisturizing effects lasted a while. The Aveeno Active Naturals Daily Moisturizing Lotion was great to keep by the sink after dish washing. My skin tends to be somewhat sensitive and this cream was great for that. (Don’t you just hate that feeling on your skin after you do the dishes?) I tried the Aveeno Eczema Skin Care kit on my daughter’s breakout and just as I suspected it worked fast and great. I used to use Aveeno on her tender skin as an infant and it was a lifesaver. I tried both the body washes and they seemed to lather well and clean well.
I did notice that the Aveeno Active Naturals Daily Moisturizing cream was a bit greasy feeling. I also noticed both the body washes left a slight film feeling on my skin. However, they did both moisturize well.
Aveeno truly is a great all around skin care product. I have also been told there are certain products made by them that are Gluten free.
Aveeno is available at most retailers such as Walmart, Target and Walgreen’s nationwide. The prices are a bit higher than many products on the market, but are very, very reasonable.
