Self Magazine and Her Campus Aveeno Product Review


I recently became a member of the Her Campus Blogger Network which has provided me with some awesome opportunities and the ability to interact with some great bloggers. One of the more recent perks was the chance to participate in a giveaway hosted by Self Magazine and Her Campus. The details? I received a Walgreens gift card in the mail and was told to go out and buy any two Aveeno products of my choice; upload my receipt; and be entered to win a FitBit Zip Wireless Activity Tracker (allowing me to learn more details about each of my workouts). Not a bad deal! 

The first product that caught my eye was the Aveeno Stress Relief Body Wash. As I have just started my first post-grad, full-time job- I have definitely been under some stress and thought a little I could use a little help after some long days commuting. As soon as I opened the bottle I knew I would love this products. The scent of lavender and chamomile were very relaxing and the body wash lathered up really well. It also made my skin feel very moisturized and helped to get rid of the sweat from my earlier workout. What I loved most about this product, however, was how gentle and revitalizing it was to my skin. Often when I workout, I develop a rash on my chest (sorry if that’s a little TMI). But the Aveeno Stress Relief Body Wash made my rash disappear almost immediately. With all the body washes I have tried, I have never experienced that…making it a keeper in my book.

The next product I purchased was the Aveeno Naturals Daily Moisturizer. This moisturizer is perfect for sensitive skin as it is fragrance-less and contains soothing oatmeal. Usually I have to skip moisturizing my legs after I shave in the shower because most lotions irritate my skin and I start to feel a burning sensation on my legs. The Aveeno moisturizer was amazing and I felt no discomfort or burning when applying after shaving. Another perk: you can use it on your body and face! Eliminating the need for two different moisturizers. 

Overall, I could not be happier with my Aveeno purchases. With winter in full force, our skin could use a little TLC…Aveeno is a great way to keep your skin happy all winter long.

  1. Aveeno Ultra Calming Face Lotion is my daily go to! It might ne a little heavy if you have oily skin, but if you are washing your face every day like me it should be fine! It really smoothes out my skin and feels fantastic against winter and wind. Also it doesn’t make your face shiny. I’m not affiliated with Aveeno or anything, just a big fan of the face lotion haha.
