Skin Replenishing Cleansing Lotion ($6.99 for 6.7oz)
Gentle skin care is always a top priority for me, so I was
excited to see these new goodies from sensitive skin specialists
Aveeno (the company with the oatmeal soap). Although I've used
foaming cleansers that I've liked, I still keep coming back to
the soothing comfort of a lotion, especially for nighttime use.
This one is ideal because it's light, removes makeup easily, and
rinses off clean with no residue. It is also fragrance-free, a
big plus for sensitive skin. I love this cleanser!
Skin Brightening Daily Moisturizer ($12.99 for 1oz)
This retinol and soy protein lotion is my new favorite in the
morning. A small pea-sized dab applied over my regular
moisturizer (Orjene Aloe Vera Deep Skin Moisturizer Crème, $9
for 4oz at cosmeticmall.com) gives my skin a nice glow and has
made my overall skin color a bit more uniform; any blotchy
redness I had is almost gone, thanks to the retinol and vitamin
C. This is gentler feeling on the skin than other retinol
products I've tried, but that also means no discomfort, dryness
or general irritation. Skin Brightening Daily Moisturizer comes
in both an SPF 15 (7.5% Octyl Methoxycinnamate, 3% Avobenzone)
and non-SPF version.
There is also a Skin Clarifying Cleanser with Soy Extract,
labeled for all skin types, that has gentle cleansers and would
be nice for someone who prefers something foaming. All of these
Aveeno products are fairly new, so keep checking your local
stores or shop online at drugstore.com.
