Favourite - Aveeno Skin Brightening Daily Scrub

I noticed my face was starting to look kind of dull after the holidays! Must have been all the late nights and cold weather and early mornings since school started!! So I thought it was the perfect time to dig out one of my favourite scrubs.

Aveeno Skin Brightening Daily Scrub.

What it claims to do:
*click on images to enlarge*
"Helps to improve skin tone, texture, and clarify to reveal brighter, more radiant skin. This unique formula combines smooth, round microbeads with moisture-rich soy extracts to gently exfoliate and remove complexion-dulling impurities while you cleanse. Good for everyday use and gentle enough for sensitive skin. Leaves skin feeling cleaner, smoother and radiantly healthy."

Some of its ingredients:

What it actually does:

This scrub has a pleasant scent to it that helps make me feel
refreshed so it's something I enjoy using in the mornings
to help wake me up. The microbeads in it
are smaller in size that other scrubs I've used,
which is what makes this a gentler scrub than others and is
possible to be used on a daily basis if you enjoy
the exfoliating effect it gives. After I use this,
my skin feels much softer to touch.
and I notice my face has a slight glow to it...
pretty much what it's described to do! I find my moisturizer
and makeup goes on really smoothly after I use this scrub.

Unlike most scrubs, the microbeads are barely visible.
But you definitely feel them once applied to your face!

I think this is by far one of my favourite scrubs.
It's one of the few products that actually
seems to deliver results for what it claims to do.
It's cheap and easy to find, so that's always a plus.
And because I have oily, acne-prone skin I can't really use anything too abrasive on my face especially if I have breakouts at the moment.. so I love how this scrub is gentle but just as effective in exfoliating my face as other scrubs. I've been using this everyday for just a little over a week and
it's definitely helped to whip my skin back into shape!

Thanks for reading :)

Thanks for this great review! I've been looking for a scrub with round beads (and not jagged edges that tear your skin *shudder*) ever since Clean & Clear discontinued my favorite one! :)

I used to use this scrub and I loved it!!! Then I purchased the St.Ives Apricot scrub for my blackheads. But I'll be going back to the Aveeno scrub soon.

I don't know why I stopped using this. It is definitely a great product and my skin was so much brighter and healthier looking after using it for so long. I used it along with the skin brightening moisturizer. Great review!
