Winter weather definitely has its pros and cons when it comes to style and beauty. I love layering my outfits but I hate wearing boring snow boots. The lack of humidity does amazing things for my hair, but my skin always starts to feel dry and dull by this time of year. I can't do anything about the snow boots, but when it comes to skincare there are so many products to chose from it's a little overwhelming. Enter the Fresh Essentials skincare line. This three piece set was sent to me by Aveeno for review, and this month one lucky blog reader will win his or her own complete line of Fresh Essentials products!
Aveeno Fresh Essentials is a complete skincare kit with an exfoliating cleanser, a daytime moisturizer, and an overnight cream. All three products are oil-free, hypoallergenic, and non-comdogenic so you don't have to worry about anything clogging up your pores.
The Daily Exfoliating Scrub is one of the gentlest exfoliators I've ever tried and leaves your skin feeling soft. In the past, I've found that harsher exfoliants tend to bring out some redness in my fair skin and I end up overcompensating with too much makeup to even out my complexion. That's not a problem at all with the Fresh Essentials Scrub because it's so soft and gentle.
The Daily Nourishing Moisturizer and Hydrating Night Cream are pretty similar in their feel and texture. The creams are rich and thick but feel light and fresh once they're on your skin. As a bonus they've both got the added benefits of vitamins A, C, and E. The Daily Nourishing Moisturizer in particular gives your skin a subtle glow and contains SPF 30 which is the best anti-aging trick in the book. The Hydrating Night Cream is slightly lighter without the SPF so your skin can breathe more overnight.
I'm pretty picky when it comes to skincare products but the Fresh Essentials collection has everything I love: light, gentle products with ingredients to keep my skin healthy and fresh looking over time.
Don't just take my word for it, give them a try yourself! If you'd like to win all three Fresh Essentials products absolutely FREE take to Facebook, Twitter and/or Instagram and answer the following question to enter:
