Blog Takeover: Aveeno Positively Radiant.

It's been a little hectic at Beauty Spark HQ recently so I decided to leave a few products in Hannah's safe hands.

I'll let her take it from here...

Instantly Aveeno's new Positively Radiant sounds appealing, who wouldn't say yes to radiant bright skin?
The Daily Skin-Brightening Moisturiser and the Daily Exfoliating Cleanser were given me to get my beauty blogger hat on for a day!


Daily Skin-Brightening Moisturiser:

What did I like?

- SPF is a must in moisturiser, especially during the summer so a big thumbs up for sun protection.
- I have quite sensitive, dry skin but this worked well for me as it provided enough moisture but didn't irritate at all, it was perfect under my foundation too. 
- It was a dream to apply, it spread evenly and didn't take long to sink in.
 -I always appreciate a pump on my moisturiser, it's sturdy and won't spill/burst in transit and I always feel like it's more hygenic than a pot.


I'm not keen on...

- The smell...it's a fresh, slightly herbal but clinical smell. It tends to linger under my nose and I'm not the biggest fan.
- In order for this to be radiant, Aveeno have added what can only be described as Cullen sparkle to the product. In some lights I was practically glittering. If you like a bit of shimmer, don't be alarmed. Just be aware that it's there in force.


Daily Exfoliating Cleanser:

What did I like?

- I like that this is a gentle exfoliator. Salt/Apricot & Sugar Scrubs all seem to be too harsh for my skin so the small microbeads worked well.
- You don't need to use loads to work up a good covering on your face, I can see it lasting me a long time!
- I've been using it in the shower which does work well, but I can see it working well with a muslin cloth for an extra exfoliation boost.
- I'd never used a soy scrub before but I did enjoy using this.
- It's a lovely gentle scrub that I can feel really working without going overboard on my skin.

I'm not keen on...

- Again, the smell is just not for me...blurgh.


I just had to do a swatch!!

When a beauty bloggers work is never done, it's always helpful to have a willing sibling to take over!

Note from the editor:

I was having a quite browse at the ingredients of the range and was suprised to find that the Cleanser contained Sodium Laureth Sulphate and a whole host of chemicals I wouldn't associate with a natural brand...maybe one to ponder here!

Daily Skin Brightening Moisturiser RRP £9.99

Also in the range:

Triple Boost Serum RRP £11.99
