Aveeno Ultra-Calming Foaming Cleanser and Nourishing Night Cream


I have always had issues with redness on my face, but a few weeks ago, it looked even worse than usual. I set out to find some new skincare products to try and help. I get so overwhelmed when it comes to picking out a new face wash, so I tried to narrow it down and specifically look for one that helped with redness.


Right away the Aveeno Ultra-Calming Foaming Cleanser jumped out at me. In its description it specifically says it helps reduce the appearance of redness through their trademarked ingredient “calming feverfew.”


I started using the cleanser that day, and I’ve been washing my face with it everyday for about two weeks. I must say, I’m super impressed! It helped reduce the redness on my cheeks within just a few days, and it’s gentle enough to use every night when I wash my face.

It’s good, not great, at removing my makeup. It gets off all of my face makeup easily, but I have to use a makeup remove to help get off my eye makeup most of the time. However, since I purchased it more for the redness calming property, I’m not complaining!


In conjunction with the cleanser, I purchased the Aveeno Ultra-Calming Nourishing Night Cream to use as my nightly moisturizer. I have used this every night as well, and I love it! It is smooth and creamy and soaks into my skin without leaving a greasy residue.


It hasn’t clogged my pores at all, and I think it has definitely aided the cleanser in reducing the redness on my cheeks and nose. Speaking of my nose, if you’re sensitive to smells, you may want to avoid this moisturizer. It claims to be fragrance free, but the Active Naturals Oat ingredient definitely gives it a yeast-like smell.  It kind of makes me feel like a Sandwich Artist at Subway. (I ignorantly assume they all smell like bread all the time.) It’s pretty strong at first, but I think it does fade relatively quickly.


The ultra-calming line also has make-up removing wipes and a daily moisturizer. I have used the makeup-up wipes before, and they’re also great!

If you struggle with facial redness, you should consider purchasing some products from the Aveeno Ultra-Calming line. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed!

Aveeno Positively Nourishing Body Wash


I just wanted to pop in and rave about this Aveeno Positively Nourishing Body Wash that I’ve been loving lately! As far as I know, there are 4 varieties. I’ve tried the antioxidant infused body wash and the calming body wash. The other two are supposed to be hydrating and smoothing. The hydrating and smoothing bottles would probably be more beneficial for my dry skin, but I honestly typically pick body washes based on scent. I also figured since they all claim to be nourishing, I couldn’t really go wrong. Besides, they’re less than $7 a bottle at Walmart.


The first one I tried was the Calming body wash which contains lavender, chamomile, and ylang-ylang. It smells so good! It has a calming (duh), relaxing scent. It’s moisturizing without being slimy, and I love it! The bottle is a great size, and it lasted me for a long time. If it sounds like your cup of tea, you can get a bottle here!


When I finally started running low on the calming body wash, I picked up a bottle of the antioxidant infused white peach and ginger scented body wash. This little fella smells even better! It’s super fresh and moisturizes just as well as the calming body wash. It’s supposed to “nourish your skin while uplifting your senses.” What is that supposed to mean? I don’t think I had a stronger sense of vision or hearing when I used it, but who’s to say? If you want your senses possibly affected, get your own bottle here3I know this post may be kind of boring, but there are always a billion body washes on the shelf. I wanted to throw in my two  cents to make it less stressful for you next time you’re out of body wash. 🙂 Besides, if it’s good enough for Jen, it’s good enough for you.
