Review: Aveeno Positively Radiant Moisterizer with SPF 15

6 Apr

Hello everyone! A skincare review for you today, I just finished this product today and well here are my thoughts on it.

Review: I’m going to be honest and say that I absolutely hated hated this moisterizer. It didn’t feel like a moisterizer and it had weird sparkly bits in it. What I guess is good about it is that it does have SPF 15 (a bit low but perfect for winter time) it does sink in easily into the skin and there is no residue leftover. The pump mechanism on the bottle is really nice as it has a locking mechanism (perfect for travel). As stated before I really didn’t like this moisterizer even though I have oily skin I didn’t feel that it was moisterizing enough. And for the weird glittery bits in this well it’s small but still visible so when I catch my skin in the light sometimes I see glitter on my face. The glittery bits didn’t help with my oily skin as it made it look even more oily.

Cost: $19.99CDN @ any drugstore

Would I recommend this product? I would for those who have great normal skin who wants to give it a boost but for those with combination/oily skin stay away from this moisterizer.

Skin Care Test

14 Feb

Since I have a break for a week I am going to do a skin care test. Some background information on my skin it’s oily/combination skin and I am pretty prone to acne breakouts. So this is the routine that I use currently:

 So the basic rundown

1. Wash face with the face cloth in warm water

2. Boots Botanics Skin Brightening Cleanser (no water needed!)

3. Shiseido White Lucent Brightening Serum on spots

4. LUSH Grease Lightning all over my face

5. St Ives Collagen Elastin Moisterizer

6. Body Shop 3-in-1 Blue Corn Mask + St Ives Apricot Scrub (not pictured) once a week

So basically I have a skin care regime basically to whiten up my dark spots due to the hyperpigmentation of the acne scars that I have. Now I got this set to try out:

 This is the Shiseido Pureness set which include a cleansing foam, softener/toner, and a mattifying moisterizer. I’m going to start on this regime tonight basically and try to get through all this. So I probably won’t use all of it at the same time just substitute it all in slowly to see if any of them actually break me out or not. Tonight I will be putting on the toner and if I react to it by tomorrow then I know I won’t be able to use it and then if I don’t break out by Tuesday I will substitute my usual cleanser into the cleansing foam. Thursday will be when I substitute the moisterizer. Lets hope that I don’t break out! Here is me now midday and way into the oilyness of my life

 So as you can tell I have currently clear skin with lots of scars and hyperpigmentation in a bunch of places especially on my chin and cheeks. Let’s hope that the test really works!
