This post is courtesy of our contributor Carolyn…Time – a day goes by before I know it and I feel like there are a million things I didn’t get finished. Since becoming a mom, I find myself having more time to shower and take baths at night rather than the morning. Also, I am a night owl by nature and showering or bathing at night helps me unwind. I have been using three different Aveeno body wash products the past couple months to decide which is my favorite. I have been testing them in both the shower and bath while deciding which one is the best for each of my
personalities moods and over time I have discovered Aveeno body wash products can serve more than one purpose.
Aveeno Active Naturals Skin Relief Body Wash:
My everyday body wash is Aveeno Active Naturals Skin Relief. I thought passing adolescence and being deeply in my twenties would change it but I STILL have problem skin, especially in the winter. The colloidal oatmeal ensures I am not suffering from irritating dry skin, bumps, and itchiness. This is my almost everyday wash and because it is fragrance free, it is gentle enough to use on my son when we run out of his Aveeno Baby Body Wash.
Aveeno Active Naturals Calming Body Wash:
To be completely honest, some nights I forgo the shower for my pillow and other nights I can’t close my eyes without seeing my 100 point to-do list on my eyelids. On the latter nights I pour myself a bath, grab my favorite book and wash up with Aveeno Active Naturals Calming Body Wash. It is infused with lavender, chamomile, and ylang-ylang. The smell is phenomenal and the texture is so smooth and soothing! Sometimes I throw a little in the water as the tub is filling and make some bubbles. The bubbles don’t always last for my whole bath but the smell lingers while I finish another chapter in my favorite book.
Aveeno Active Naturals Stress Relief Body Wash:
I love my job as a day home provider but sometimes stressful situations rule the day. On these days, I take a shower as soon as my boyfriend gets home and this is where my third Aveeno body wash comes in. Aveeno Active Naturals Stress Relief has similar Active Naturals as the Calming Body Wash; specifically lavender, chamomile, and ylang-ylang and because it has a fruitier scent than the Aveeno Calming, it distresses and recharges my energy levels at the same time. The second purpose I discovered for the Stress Relief Body wash, (well it says right on the bottle), is that it is “a rich shaving lotion for silky, smooth legs”. This product is perfect for my sanity and my time management!
I love finding a product that has dual purposes and this is just another reason I have grown very fond of Aveeno products. Are there any beauty products you use that you have discovered another purpose for?
