In search of a more nourishing daily moisturizer, I picked up the Aveeno Fresh Essentials Moisturizer. I have to say I am impressed, I think this is Aveeno’s best moisturizer yet! I have been using Aveeno facial lotions for over 5 years now and I am blown away with this new one.
This product claims that it will “improve the look of stressed skin and keep what’s good for the skin in and the bad out. It is enriched with anti-oxidants and vitamins and is clinically proven to replenish moisture to dry, stressed skin. It will soften and smooth skin with conditioning emollients. It strengthens the skin’s moisture barrier and protects skin from environmental stressors and the UVA/UVB rays.”
The Application: I use half a pump and apply with clean hands on a freshly cleaned face. This soaks in quickly and is not as greasy as other products with sunscreen. I recommend only wearing this during the day because it was too much for my skin day and night. I like how the way the pump is made – there will be no wasted product, so you don’t have to worry about throwing out product. I would recommend using a light facial powder over this or over your makeup, it may make some people’s skin a bit shiny.
The Smell: This product smells AMAZING. This product instantly makes me happier. It smells like sweet flowers and light citrus.
Moisture: This product moisturizes more than any of the other Aveeno Facial lotions that I have tried. Its great, your skin feels supple and free to move.
Skin Improvement: My skin improved, it glowed and did not make me break out. I like that it provides 30 SPF and it doesn’t give that white gleam in photos.
Reminder: For the best results, apply this moisturizer and wait 10 minutes for it to soak in before you apply any primers or makeup.
