As much as I love winter, my skin certainly dreads its arrival. All of my usual skin products simultaneously stop being effective. So when HerCampus selected me to get two free Aveeno products, I figured now was as good a time to try a new brand as any.
I received a $15 Walgreens gift card to make my purchases. By photographing my receipt, I was able to enter a giveaway for a FabFitFun (and you can enter as well by following the instructions found here!) My mother buys Aveeno's standard moisturizer but I've never found it to be very effective, so I branched out and bought Aveeno's Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub and their Positively Smooth Shave Gel. (There were some other products I would have liked to try, but I was aiming to stay as close to $15 as possible...it's very easy to spend a lot on Aveeno, I found out!) I don't usually use face scrubs because my skin tends to hate the beads, and I've never used a proper shave gel before, so I'm quite pleased with these two products.
I have tried them both once since buying them. The Daily Scrub is very gentle and so far doesn't bother me. And it is VERY nice to be using shave gel--so much easier and softer than conditioner!
