Aveeno Ultra Calming Skincare Review & Giveaway

The next skincare collection that I had success with, was Aveeno's Ultra Calming Skincare Collection. It's perfect for dry and sensitive skin! I had really good results while using it. It's also very affordable. Aveeno sent me the following products to try. Below are my thoughts.

supersweet(run & buy it) sweet(really good,buy it) bittersweet(ok, issues)not sweet(not good,don't buy this stuff) 

Aveeno Ultra Calming Foaming Cleanser - Supersweet

The first time I used this cleanser, was the end of last year. I was reading my original review on it after trying it again this year, and I feel exactly the same way about it. It's gentle on dry, sensitive reactive skin. It can be used day & night. I never experienced any type of reaction while using the product. A dermatologist recommended Cetaphil cleanser for me years ago, and I feel this particular cleanser is a step up if you feel that Cetaphil is just too gentle (and you need more). I would definitely recommend this cleanser. It also comes at a price point that is affordable for everyone.

Aveeno Ultra Calming Daily Moisturizer - Bittersweet

This is an ok moisturizer. I gave it a Bittersweet rating, because I feel it's lightweight. It moisturizes, but for me it doesn't moisturize quite enough. My dry skin sucks it up! I think anyone with dry skin would need about 3 pumps of this. It dries very quickly. The formula is good. There's nothing bad about it. It feels good to the skin, but it just doesn't provide a lot of moisture. What I suggest you purchase is the night cream, that I'm about to mention below.

Aveeno Ultra Calming Nourishing Night Cream - Supersweet

If there is a SUPERSTAR in this collection, it is this product! I did an extensive review on it earlier this year (linked below) and I am still that EXCITED about it. This night cream is the absolute BEST I have ever tried. Its moisturizing, without being over the top. Your skin will feel so soft after using this. I SUPER LOVE THIS STUFF! This night cream is so good, you can use it day or night. It is not heavy. It will not bother your makeup application. I love it! That's why I say, skip the daily moisturizer above and just get a jar of this stuff. You will thank me! Yes you will! I believe in this so much, I'm giving a jar away to a lucky reader of AVSB. So definitely enter via Rafflecopter below. This giveaway is open Worldwide. You can read my original review on it here. It's THE BOMB!

Aveeno Ultra Calming Makeup Removing Wipes - Sweet

I was interested in trying these, because I tried the Aveeno Positively Radiant Makeup Removing Wipes in early 2014. So I wanted to compare the two! I never had a problem or experienced any type of reaction while using the Positively Radiant Makeup Removing Wipes. If you click on my old review above, you'll see from the gifs those wipes removed makeup quickly and easily. The Ultra Calming Makeup Removing Wipes are definitely more gentle. With the Positively Radiant Wipes you only needed one to get makeup off. With the Ultra Calming (depending on how much makeup you have on) you may need two! The formula for these wipes are that gentle.  If you use a lot of makeup, go with the Positively Radiant. It won't affect your skin. If you just use light makeup, then pick these up.  Both are really good.

Lovely reviews. Those whipes sound great! You just reminded me I need to get some. I like to use them when I'm travelling. That night cream sounds even better. Thanks for organizing this lovely review.

Have a lovely day dear Kim!

Lilli said...

They all must be very good Kim, in particular wish I tried the foam cleanser and the night cream. Maybe only the moisturizer seems little disappointing, nevertheless this brand still got such amazing products that always enjoy. Hugs Kim, have a good day! xo

The 'Nourishing Night Cream' sounds wonderful, my moisturiser/cream is for any time of day, though I'll admit to being curious about time-specific creams :)

I am sold on that night cream! I'm a huge Aveeno fan, which I think I've told you before but it bears repeating:D

Darcy said...

I have always loved aveeno products! I don't think I have ever tried something by them I didn't like. I don't think I've checked out this line of theirs though, will have to look for it next time i go to replace some of my products!

Harlynn said...

Aveeno always puts out. I agree that after putting the lotion on the skin it's too thin to soak into dry skin. You know I'm a redhead and have super pale sensitive skin! The foam cleanser I will give a try (it's about time to go shopping for beauty and hygiene products. The night cream I know I'd love! My mother uses some Neveno (?) night cream, I prefer Aveeno or Vaseline lotion. I only wear mascara, so most make up removers (including eye make up removers) have never failed to end up burning my eyes or skin. Maybe I'll also give these a try of they can be used on eyes.

I remember your review of that night cream and it's good to hear you still love it Kim! I think I may get it for my day cream during the winter when my skin is extra dry. Thanks for another sweet giveaway!

I need all these products! glad they worked for you. I have pretty sensitive skin so I only use products that are made for sensitive skin

Josie Hearn said...

I used aveeno lotion when I was quite young and it was lovely! This post reminded me how great it was, will definitely need to repurchase some. Josie xo

Cee said...

I've always found Aveeno face products to be drying - not overly so, just enough that I would notice and want to change to something else. That night cream sounds like a dream, though. Every time you write about Aveeno, I really think I should give them another try :)

Miss Val's Creations said...

I used to use Aveeno cleanser and moisturizer. I loved their products, particularly for their affordability. My only reason for changing was my desire for heavy duty anti aging wonders as I was growing older. :)

Shireen L. Platt said...

I quite using wipes years and years ago after the whole hoo-hah about how bad they are for the skin but this one sounds brilliant! Thank you so much for another great giveaway, Kim!

The cleanser sounds great. I use Cetaphil from time to time, so I'll definitely give this a try when I need something more :)

Glad your opinion about the cleanser didn't change from last year, Kim. I love how affordable those products are and how effective the night cream seems to be. Such a useful written review, dear! Great job.
