Aveeno Positively Radiant Intensive Night Cream
Every year when winter rolls around, I desperately search for the perfect moisturiser to keep my skin hydrated through the chilly months. I find my sensitive, combination skin to change completely come June, when it becomes dry and flaky due to the wind factor.
This year, I was sent the Aveeno Positively Radiant Intensive Night Cream for review and after using it every night for the last couple of months, I have fallen in love!
The cream is formulated with Active Naturals Total Soy Complex, which is said to brighten dull skin and create a more radiant appearance. I found that this super thick cream really hydrated my skin well and definitely has helped in making my skin look more radiant and healthy. I've been getting a lot of compliments on my skin lately and I feel this product has played a huge part in its improvement.
The texture of the cream is quite strange. It is quite thick and I think Emma from one of my favourite blogs, Emma Bovary Beauty, described it well, likening it to curdled yoghurt. As unappealing as this description sounds, I really enjoy how every night when I go to use the product, it has settled nicely into the jar, with no evidence that I had scooped a bit out the night before.
The cream feels really lush on the skin and by morning I can tell my skin has really benefitted from using it. When the really chilly days and nights hit, I was even mixing in a couple of drops of rosehip oil to amp up the moisture, though I find it does a good enough job on its own.
This probably isn't for people that have really acne-prone skin. I doubt I'll be able to use it once the warmer months hit, either, as it will be too heavy once my skin gets a bit oilier.
Overall, I really love this product. The scent is pleasant and not too strong and the price is reasonable. I will definitely be repurchasing this next winter!
Have you got a favourite night cream you swear by during the winter months? I'd love to hear your thoughts if you have tried this product.
