We are well into spring time by now, right! Flowers blooming, birds chirping and sandals being worn by all. Spring is a wonderful time of year. Living in Southern California, we have great spring days, but it also has a few down falls. The Santa Ana winds, which are high warm and dry winds we get in early spring time. Those darn winds cause havoc on not only my allergies, but also my skin. I tend to have dry skin and the warm wind doesn't help any. Combine that with the fact I burn easily if I'm out in the sun for more than 45 minutes, and you can see why my skin needs good coverage. Well this is the part where Aveeno Active Naturals comes to the rescue. I was sent some products for review from Aveeno in collaboration with Latina Blogger Connect. I have used a few Aveeno products before like the face moisturizer and cleanser, but most excited for the body moisturizers. I have to admit to something, having dry skin drives me nuts. It really bugs me to have dry skin and have used so many different types of lotions. Some work really well, but cost to much. While other are full of perfume scents and seem to dry out my skin even more. Its a constant battle to find the right moisturizer for my skin. Oh did I mention I burn (not tan) easily, having SPF coverage is also important. Although I hate having to wear sunscreen and lotion everyday. Not gonna lie I get lazy and usually don't wear sunscreen....bad bad! I know, I know no lecture needed. So when I received the Aveeno Active Naturals package, it was a delight to see the daily moisturizing lotion with sunscreen. Seriously made me squeal...LOL
OK so here is the low down. Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion with sunscreen is like the bomb. I really, really love having to wear only one product with dual purpose. Remember I said, I'm lazy and wouldn't wear 2 different products. Who has time to slather on sunscreen, and then lotion. Not me...it does annoy me and don't do it. OK I know what your thinking, wow this chick doesn't care about her skin. Nope I do, just get lazy...LOL
OK well now I found the solution to not only my laziness, but my dry skin during the spring and beyond. I shower in the morning with Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Body Wash, then follow up with the Daily Moisturizing Lotion with SPF 15. I am set for the day, with out having to re-apply lotion. Did I mention it smells good too. As I have gotten older, strong scented lotions give me a headache. Yeah so weird, but I just cant stand the scents of floral, or perfumed lotions anymore. Aveeno Active Naturals has a light scent, which is fresh and kinda yummy smelling. Well it makes sense since they have plenty of natural ingredients that are great for your skin.
Lets not forget about the face, Aveeno has plenty of great stuff for your face. Aveeno has a tinted moisturizer with SPF 30 for those lazy days (here I go again) when you don't want or have time for makeup. Again dual purpose, you moisturizer, you have UVA/UVB coverage and add some color to your face all with one product. Voila! Out you go to enjoy a beautiful spring day.
