Hello My Lovelies,
I hope you are all doing well and have had a wonderful weekend. Whilst you are reading this I will still be at V Festival so make sure to keep checking back as I will be posting about my Festival experience really soon. Usually on Sundays I will be pampering myself ready for the week ahead – hopefully I can still get some of my routines in place when I get home late after the festival. Not so long ago I was contacted by Aveeno to try out their Daily Moisturiser. As the weather is constantly fluctuating here in the UK from warm to cold to hot to raining, I thought it would be a great idea to try out a new moisturiser. This was my first time trying out an Aveeno product, so naturally I did some research behind the brand before getting started. According to the Aveeno website and various pages on the interweb, they are one of the most trusted skincare brands as they only use natural ingredients in their products. One of the main ingredients that they use that is highly recommended by dermatologists is oats. Aveeno makes sure to include this ingredient in most, if not all of their products, which is great to hear as it is not something I have typically heard of in other skincare I have tried. As a skin protectant active ingredient, oatmeal can help restore skin’s normal pH and aid in the maintenance of skin’s moisture barrier to help prevent and protect dry skin. The Daily Moisturising lotion is extremely nourishing and is clinically proven to improve the health of dry skin in just one day with significant improvements in 2 weeks. The formulation consists of Active Naturals® Colloidal Oatmeal and rich emollients, which help prevent and protect dry skin.
I never knew this before, however, there are so many benefits to oats in skincare! They increase skin hydration, as colloidal oatmeal helps restore and protect the skin's natural barrier helping to prevent water loss and maintain moisture. This is something I really love about this product because one of my #AveenoSkincareSecrets it to moisturise straight out of the shower when you are still slightly damp – this helps lock in even more moisture! Doing this in combination with the Aveeno Daily Moisturiser would be and has been a dream, team! It also soothes, as oatmeal is known for its soothing benefits on sensitive skin. It cleanses, the oat particles adhere to dirt and dead skin cells (like a magnet) allowing them to be washed away. They protect, they create a protective film on the surface on the skin. Finally it buffers, which helps return skin to normal pH levels.
I have been using the Daily Moisturiser now for around 2 weeks and so far it has left me really impressed as my skin has been looking tip top – well I think so anyway! I love it when you can actually see a product work over time. This moisturising lotion left my skin feeling extremely soft to the touch, smooth and enhanced a naturally healthy glow. An added bonus is the fact that it is fragrance-free, non-greasy and non-comedogenic so it is perfect for pretty much any skin type.When I was younger I used to suffer from some mild eczema, which was linked to my hayfever allergies. Years passed and it seemed as if I had grown out of it all, however, during the past few months it seems to have come back ever so slightly – especially in my inner elbow area. Using the Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion has definitely helped soothe and improve my skin and it has left me feeling more confident as eczema can be so frustrating, especially when it is being stubborn! What I enjoyed the most was the fact that it started hydrating my skin immediately and when it soaks in, your skin looks glowing, healthy and soft to the touch. I definitely feel I would pick up another bottle of this as it has worked really well with my skin personally – a 300ml bottle costs around £7.14 (from the Aveeno site here), which is so reasonable! This is definitely one of those ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’ products because even though the packaging is not extremely eye catching the product inside is pretty outstanding. Now I have tried the Daily Moisturiser, I would love to give the body wash and hand cream a try!
