Aveeno Positively Radiant CC Eye Cream and Daily Moisturizer*

"The AVEENO® POSITIVELY RADIANT® Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 combines an exclusive ACTIVE NATURALS® Soy Complex with natural light diffusers to deliver immediate and long-term benefits to the skin. The product reflects light to visibly smooth imperfections and works to reduce the appearance of skin discolourations." - Aveeno 

This product hydrates your skin all day, leaving it soft and smooth and helps to act as a good base to prime your skin for makeup (if you choose to use it) as it absorbs really quickly. This lotion has an oil-free and hypoallergenic formula that is gentle enough to use for sensitive skin. It does not break me out (and I have sensitive skin). I have previously used products before that contain SPF and my skin did not take too kindly to it and I developed minor skin irritations and had little bumps on my cheeks - with this lotion, I did not experience this side effect. 

This lotion would be great for those of you who do not regularly think to use SPF on your face (I am guilty of that) - this product would be super convenient for you to combine a moisturizer and SPF together. 

This product retails for approx $21.99 CAD and can be found nationwide in select food and drug stores or mass retailers.

Attached below are pictures of the new AVEENO® POSITIVELY RADIANT® CC EYE CREAM. It is said to "provide multi-tasking colour-correcting eye cream protects and perfects skin with ACTIVE NATURALS® Total Soy Complex, while providing natural looking coverage. It is said to instantly conceal signs of fatigue, including dark circles, dullness, and puffiness around the eyes, while improving skin’s tone and appearance throughout the day. 100% naturally-derived broad-spectrum sunscreen ingredient, titanium dioxide helps protect the delicate skin around the eyes from future damage. Gentle and lightweight formula is oil-free, hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic. Available in two shades: Fair to Light and Medium." - Aveeno

I've included swatches of the two shades below for your reference. I appreciate that the fair to light shade is salmon/peach toned, and the medium shade leaned more to the yellow-tones. However, although the medium shade was perfect for me, the coverage was too light. I would have preferred to have an eye cream on its own, without any color pigments to it and then used my own concealer on top. I still had to use concealer in addition to this CC Eye Cream. 

For those of you who do not have bad dark circles, I would suggest that you try this out as it may work for you, however for those of you who have darker panda eyes (like me), this might not work. It is important to note that when I applied 2 layers of this product, it was able to cover 80% of the darkness, but it did feel a little heavy underneath my eyes. Finally, this product with one layer, does not feel heavy at all and isn't too rich (emollient) - this means that it didn't give me any irritations or bumps to develop on my under eye (like some eye creams that I have tried in the past from diff brands).

This product retails for $19.97 – $22.99 CAD / 15mL and can be found nationwide in select food and drug stores or mass retailers.

I decided to include the picture below to let you know that I've been using products from Aveeno for a while now - this includes the Clear Complexion Foaming Cleanser and one of my favorite exfoliators of all time, which is the Skin Brightening Daily Scrub. The exfoliating beads are really fine, but still does it job. It doesn't dry your skin out and I love the scent! Finally, one of the lotions I love for my really dry legs is the Aveeno Creamy Moisturizing Oil  (it contains sweet almond oil in it, which gives a lovely fragrance and provides deep hydration). I typically buy and use it during the colder months, especially the winter time, and it really works wonders!

Have you tried any Aveeno products? Would you consider it? 
Until next time, XO - M.
