I am partnering with Social Stars and Aveeno® to share my family’s skin care experience with their natural ingredient beauty products. These two are a couple of my favorites so far, keeping our skin naturally moisturized and protected at all times. #Aveeno
How well do you know your lotion?
Recently, I’ve gotten to know mine quite well. On a quest to having flawless skin, I have been using Aveeno® Active Naturals® products to cleanse and moisturize my face and skin for the past 4-5 months, and I an honestly liking what i’m seeing!
Aveeno® Active Naturals® products use only the best natural ingredients (oats, wheat, soy, natural oils and extracts) that have been proven to achieve beautiful results, keeping your skin healthy from the outside, in. My family trusts the brand to moisturize and maintain our skin, Aveeno® products are perfect for families who suffer from dry, sensitive skin, eczema, and who are interested in taking a natural and holistic approach towards skin care.
There are two specific lotions from the Aveeno® Active Naturals® line that I have been using. Both of them have worked out great for us, they have a smooth and silky feel, and are great choices for a quick absorbing lotion for the skin.
Aveeno® Sheer Hydration Daily Moisturizing Lotion
Silky. Smooth. Undeniably sheer. That is Aveeno® Sheer Hydration Daily Moisturizing lotion! This lotion uses natural ingredients, including Active Naturals® oatmeal, yet still goes on super light and absorbs almost instantly. I apply on my entire body, aside from my face, after showering and I feel so smooth! With a 24-hour moisturizing life, I can be sure that i’m covered all day long.
Aveeno® Baby Continuous Protection® Lotion Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 55
What I like about Aveeno® Baby® Continuous Protection® SPF 55 Lotion is that it is perfectly formulated for baby’s sensitive skin. This lotion’s natural ingredient is oatmeal, a skin protectant active ingredient that can help restore skin’s normal pH and aid in the maintenance of skin’s moisture barrier to help prevent and protect dry skin. Also, SPF 55 means that it is a great head to toe lotion for sunny days, protecting baby (or yourself!) from those harmful UV rays for us to 80 minutes. I would re-apply mid-day for long outdoor stays.
Aveeno® claims that their Sheer Hydration® Daily Moisture is a no residue lotion and absorbs without leaving a sticky or greasy feeling, so we decided to take The Tissue Test to see just how true that is. Basically, take a pump of Aveeno® Sheer Hydration Daily Moisturizing lotion and rub it into your hands, front and back, for 15 seconds. Apply and press a plain piece of 2-ply tissue onto your hand. VOILA! You should see that there is no residue from the lotion on the tissue!

Well, what do you think? Take a look…
Would you look at that?! A quick absorption and my skin still feels super smooth? OH YES. For soft smooth skin without the sticky residue, Aveeno® Sheer Hydration Daily Moisturizing lotion is the go-to lotion for us. For the sunnier days, we’ll make sure the kiddos use Aveeno® Baby® Continuous Protection® SPF 55 Lotion in the morning for skin protection.
