You know how there are brands out there that you just know are high quality? You know that you can trust their products, and they never let you down? Well, for me, one of those brands is AVEENO. Because I have skin that is really sensitive, I have used various AVEENO products over the years. Body bars, oatmeal baths, cleansers, moisturizers, you name it. When I found out I had a chance to try a new AVEENO product, I was really excited.
As part of the Influenster program, I was selected to try the AVEENO Positively Radiant Intensive Night Cream. I am a big fan of night creams for several reasons. First off it forces me to take off my make up. I have a terrible habit of sleeping in my make up, which is terrible for my skin. In order to moisturize, I first must cleanse. So, the whole process is making my skin healthier. Secondly, night moisturizer helps keep my skin soft and smooth. I moisturise during the day after I cleanse, and doing the same thing at night just makes sure my skin remains clean and nourished as I sleep.
Some of the amazing things about AVEENO Positively Radiant Intensive Night Cream include the fact that it is oil free, which means my face left moist but not greasy; it contains B3 and soy complex to help nourish my skin; it helps even my skin tone and reduce blotchiness, which is problematic for me; it works at night, so I am getting real beauty sleep!
In terms of products, AVEENO is a brand I consider to be cost effective. Priced moderately and available in most drug stores and departmental retailers, AVEENO Positively Radiant is available to a lot of women.
I am really pleased with the results so far, and I know the more I use the Intensive Night Cream, the better the results will be. I use the Positively Radiant at night, and still look radiant in the morning.
Maybe this cream will inspire my unconscious and motivate me to pursue a radiant dream. My radiant dream? To finally write a book. What would your radiant dream be?
As I mentioned, I recently got a chance to try out Palmolive Fresh Infusions thanks to Influenster and Palmolive. I received 3 bottles, each a different scent: Ginger White Tea, Lemon Thyme, and Lime Basil. Upon initial inspection, each bottle smelled fantastic. The scents are light, and clean smelling, and do not smell artificial.
I shared a bottle with my friend Erin. The scent she chose was the Lime Basil. She was super excited, and really seems to like it. Like me, Erin cooks a lot, so she ends up washing a lot of dishes. This soap can really perk up this unpleasant task. She was also excited that the soap matched her kitchen, which is a soft lime green color. I think that the Lime Basil scent smells a little like Lime Lifesavers, and Erin agreed!
I also got some coupons to share with my friends, which I was excited about. In fact, one of my friends on Facebook was so excited about the Fresh Infusions picture I posted, I sent her some coupons in the mail! It was really fun to be able to share this product in a tangible way!
While I like all three scents, I have to admit the Lemon Thyme scent is my favorite for a lot of reasons. When I was a kid, the dish soap we always had our house was lemon scented, so the Lemon Thyme scent reminded me of my childhood and happy memories in our family kitchen. The Lemon Thyme scent is so bright and sunny, it has really helped pep up my mood on these cold, dreary winter days we have been having lately. Everything about these scents is bright and uplifting (and make me crave summertime!).
In terms of performance, I really thought the Fresh Infusions did a great job. My dishes are clean, with no residue. Also, true to Palmolive form, the product is really gentle on my hands. I wash a lot of dishes, so between the hot water and the cold winter weather, my hands can get cracked and sore. Palmolive Fresh Infusions does a great job of keeping my hands soft and moisturized. With this product, I was able to tackle my dirty dishes, with no gloves necessary!
The product is reasonably priced, and is available at WalMart, which is pretty convenient! All in all, I am really happy that I got to try Palmolive Fresh Infusions and share it with my friends!
I really love the clear gloss Liquid Lipshine that I received to try. It is a nice finish to other lip colors, it is not greasy, it smells great, and it seems to last a fairly long time. All in all, a big winner!
As a person trying to lose weight, I must say that Progresso soups are great for being low in calories (or WW points) and still making you feel like you ate something hearty. They taste great, and seem to be lower in sodium than other soups. I keep several cans of these soups on hand at all times.
