Hello, my lovelies! I am writing to you post-midterm and post post-midterm nap (that was necessary).
Can I just say that I love being able to review different skincare products for you guys?! I know it seems like I’m bouncing around all over the place, but my skin adapts and reacts to skincare pretty quickly, so it makes reviewing skincare less timely and more fun. I also think that there’s so many different skincare products out there that it’s fun to try everything so different. Sometimes not so fun when you have a bad reaction, but that hasn’t happened to me in a few years, luckily. I can usually tell by looking at ingredients and information of products if I will have a reaction or not. 🙂
I wanted to get this review and giveaway up for you guys because It’s been a bit since I’ve posted. I blame on that on the ridiculous amount of reading I had to do to prepare for my midterm. But now I get to offer you guys something super awesome! A chance to win this set of Aveeno Fresh Essentials skin care products!
Before I go in depth about these products, I will let you know that I received these complimentary to sample them. I was sent an extra set of products that I decided to give to a friend and had her try them with me. The reason I did that is because she has very different skin from me, but it’s still sensitive like mine. Her skin is oily and sensitive, and mine is combination to dry (especially in this -50C weather) but also sensitive, so I wanted a well-rounded review for you.
Without further ado, Let me talk in depth about these products for you, so you know what you’re getting!
I usually go back and forth between products in my cabinet for my night time moisturizer. Generally, I choose something a bit heavier for overnight moisture. After I was sent these products, I decided to use this night cream on a regular basis for a while to see the full results. It’s a thicker cream than the Nourishing Moisturizer, but it still absorbs great. My skin is a lot less dehydrated in the mornings lately due to this and my increased consumption of water.
One disclaimer I will mention: you might see me on Twitter complaining about eczema on my face. This is not due to these products. It’s not just on my face–it’s on my arms too. It happens to me almost every winter (since I moved back to Canada anyway), and the weather has been bouncing between -10C and -40C for the past couple of weeks, so my skin is reacting to it. It’s sad because the eczema on my face is also on my lip, so I can’t wear pretty lipstick. That hurts my heart.
Onto the giveaway! US and overseas readers: please don’t hate me. I’m hoping to have some other stuff to giveaway for you guys in the near future. This is Canada-only. If you’re under 18, please ask your parents for permission to enter. Good luck, lovelies!
