rite aid trip week 01.08 – 01.14.2012

Hi friend!

i was in desperate need of skincare products, so to rite aid i went.

7.99  aveeno foaming cleanser
15.99  aveeno clear complexion daily moisturizer
5.99  aveeno daily moisturizing body lotion
29.97 (the aveeno was buy 1 get 1 50% off, the body lotion is 11.99)

coupons used:
4.00 (2) $2 aveeno skincare q
1.00 (1) aveeno q

total: 24.97 + 2.40  (tax)
oop: 27.37
+up rewards received: $10

so in essence i paid $17.37 for the 3 products which is not bad at all considering the facial moisturizer is $15.99. it’s seldom that aveeno goes on sale and i NEEDED them!

now onto the quick reviews:

aveeno daily moisturizing body lotion – one word: love! leaves my skin soft a lot longer than any other body lotions i’ve tried. it’s not greasy, though it takes just a little extra time to absorb. my skin, mainly my legs, are sensitive and get very itchy most specially during winter months. from my experience, this lotion helps the itchiness as well as prevents it.

aveeno foaming cleanser – cleans without stripping the skin. mr.s likes this too and he’s very picky when it comes to cleansers. my sister has been using this product for 2 years now and swears by it. my brother also uses this product and it has cleared his acne prone skin.

aveeno clear complexion facial moisturizer – it’s a light daily moisturizer that leaves the skin soft. however, it’s not creamy or moisturizing enough for my dry spots (eczema spots on my face). i have to use my aquaphor for that. still, my face is now doing much better than before. we’ll see how it goes in a month or so.

the cleanser and the facial moisturizer claim that they even out skin tone and prevent breakouts. so far i have seen that my skin had evened out a bit and the redness diminished. the key ingredient for both products is salicylic acid. it’s a plant based compound that helps treat acne. i had a cystic pimple on my chin and it lasted for a day! without using these two products, the annoying zits would have lasted for several days or even a week.

What is your skincare routine? What are your favorite products?
