AVEENO Sunscreen Review + Summertime Pool Fun

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post for AVEENO®. I'm a 2014 AVEENO® Ambassador. All opinions are 100% my own. I received (5) tubes of AVEENO® sunscreen #AveenoSun, Wildfox Couture Le Femme Cateye Sunglasses and a Make A Wish Wishbone bracelet by Dogeared from AVEENO®. 

Have you gotten any pool or beach time in this Summer? I relaxed at my aunt's (condo) pool this weekend. It was in the 70's this past weekend (Cincinnati, OH), but it's going to be in the upper 90's this week. IT'S SUPER SIZZLE HOT! HaHaHa July is UV Safety Month and AVEENO sent me their sunscreen collection to test out! They also sent me some really COOL gifts! They spoil me & I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! C'mon, and let me show you what I received! :)

The first product I was excited to test out, was AVEENO's Protect + Hydrate Sunscreen Lotion FOR FACE (Broad Spectrum SPF 50). Let me tell you! I use to use regular body sunscreen on my face. It was way too heavy! Especially when applying makeup afterwards! I'm happy to say this sunscreen is light, has a clean, fresh scent, absorbs completely into my skin and doesn't affect my makeup application. I also wear UVA/UVB sunglasses and a sun hat. This sunscreen is also sweat + water resistant (80 min). Apply 15 minutes before sun exposure!

The second product I was excited to test out was AVEENO's Hydrosport Wet Skin Spray Sunscreen (Broad Spectrum SPF 30). NO CAP GUYS!!! It's built into the can! I love that feature, because who wants to fumble with caps when you're at the beach, swimming area etc!?! You just TWIST & SPRAY! Another thing, it's not oily or greasy! Spray your legs, arms etc. Rub the sunscreen in with your hands. Not oily. Smells great. Did I say it was OIL FREE? Apply 15 minutes before sun exposure! Do NOT spray in your face! Apply to your hands and then rub it into the skin of your face :)

Do you have sensitive skin? Well, you're going to love the third sunscreen product by AVEENO! It's specifically for sensitive skin: AVEENO Natural Protection Lotion Sunscreen. It's fragrance free and has soothing oat. It provides NATURAL PROTECTION! Meaning it's 100% naturally sourced sunscreen ingredients. This sunscreen lotion has a broad spectrum SPF of 50. The cream is white and has no scent. Apply 15 minutes before sun exposure!

The last two help reverse skin dehydration! Did you know any such thing existed? I didn't! Both contain nourishing oat. AVEENO's protect + hydrate sunscreen lotions come in a range from SPF 30 - 70. It's designed to protect and nourish skin to keep it looking and feeling healthy. It contains ACTIVE NATURALS OAT, which provides broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection while helping to reverse skin dehydration. Apply 15 minutes before sun exposure!

Here are some pics I took around the pool. The plants are so pretty! Nobody uses it! So I'm having a blast. AVEENO sent me a beautiful pair of Wildfox Le Femme cat eye sunglasses from Wildfox Couture. They are so COOL! They also sent me a beautiful 'make a wish' wishbone bracelet from Dogeared. They have some really cool jewelry. Very minimal (which I like). My dress is by Garnet Hill (purchased last year). Shhh, I took my aunt's straw hat. HaHaHa I thought it went well with my dress. >.<  Have a great week everybody! Let your light shine BRIGHT!

The sunglasses look so cute on you! I wish it would look good on me but it looks too small for my wide face. :( Oh wow, you got 5 sunscreens. I only got 3.


Lilli said...

Hi Kim! Oh, they have spoiled u a lot! The sun collection inspires me a lot, especially the lotion for face and the ones for body to rehydrated the body, sound very good and nourishing, my skin would need as going to the beach start to feel little dry. The sunnies are so stylish and suit u very wey, how adorable is also the bracelet! Many hugs Kim, enjoy the pool! Where ur aunt lives sounds really the paradise!

Stanislava E. said...

Oh I haven't been to the beach or by the pool yet but soon! How cool Aveeno sent you all that stuff! I am a fan of the brand! Thnaks for sharing your review! The sunglasses are so cool and you look great with them!


Mica T said...

Oh man I wish I could go to the pool! Getting too cold here now, even in the middle of the day :)

Such a cute sunscreen kit! I tend to use makeup with sunscreen built in, as like you I find the usual stuff much too oily for my face. It's oily enough on it's own haha!

Random_Hi_D said...

I've heard of this product. I'm interested in that 70 SPF as I play frisbee in long hours under the sun sometimes and I have light sensitive skin. I might try it out sometime. Thanks for sharing, Kim.


Jackie Harrison said...

You look great Kim! What a pretty pool, so nice that you got to enjoy it. I like Aveeno sunscreens. I like the sound of that spray; I have to give that a try!

Petite Yeoja said...

Lovely sun glass and bracelet! I also love the pool, it look so nice to be there!
Anyway, the sunscreen seems great. I haven't tried of it before tbh.
Have a nice day! x


Debra Lynn Mejia said...

Your shades are so cute! Nice photos by the pool! I trust the Aveeno brand and I like their sunscreen. I haven't tried their spray on one yet. Will have to get some:)

Corinne Figliuzzi said...

you look DIVINE in those sunnies, Kim!! It's bad to say but I am not a sunscreen kinda gal-- although I definitely pick up a few if I'm heading to the beach! Now I'm curious if skin dehydration also adds to that super tired feeling you get from the beach/sun. Hmmmm! hahah

Lorena said...

Nice sunnies Kim :)

nancy @ adore to adorn said...

Love your sunnies.

I love Aveeno sunscreens. I started using them a few weeks ago and they are great.

Busola Coutts said...

Look at you looking all cute and beach ready. Thanks for another lovely review and you that pool area is gorgeous. Keep smiling :).


Dale Janee said...

Your pool day looks like so much fun and it's so cute how you included the sign at the pool with 'no diving.' I have used Aveeno a lot in the past and I love Neutrogena and Eucerin sunscreen too. I always need formulas for sensitive skin especially on my neck and chest or the sun will break me out so I'd definitely try these formulas. :)) Hope you're having a great summer!


Pilar said...

Great post and review Kim! These look and sound like lovely products! Aveeno is a very good brand!

Sara Gerard said...

I have that SPF 50 for the body one! It works great! I love these pics Kim, I am jealous! I haven't been in a pool yet this summer.

Cheryl van den Berg said...

The pool decor is great--and so are those Wildfox sunnies!


Alicia Mackin said...

Oh I am checking this face lotion out for sure. I still can't find that skin brighting serum, hopefully the stores stock this, and LOVE those glasses! What great packaging.

Rebeca Muñoz López said...

Hi Kim, for me it is important that sunscreen has rapid absorption has light texture and not greasy, good thing Aveeno has these features! I like your new glasses, kisses!


London Loafers said...

Hey Kim! :) Fantastic review as always!
I can't wait to try out the Aveeno brightening serum, I've never tried anything like that before and now I must say that I am intrigued :)


Darcy said...

Sunscreen is so important! I normally use Neutrogena but these sound amazing; I may need to buy one and give it a shot!

Tanya W. said...

I'm always applying sunscreen when I know Ill be outdoors for long periods of time ( even though its way too hot to do that in Japan now haha). I loved this review, and I also love the shades you are wearing!

alexis said...

Ha! I love that we both talked about sunscreen this week! As you can guess I would probably gravitate the the natural version.

AND I love the sunglasses on you!!! I have been wanting a pair of cat eyes and those are so cool :)

Tina Bradley said...

You look so chic poolside, Kim! I adore Aveeno's products. The lotion is a longtime fave. I hadn't tried the body wash until I won the items from your recent Instagram giveaway. Absolutely love it! A new fave of mine (I'm about to invest in another bottle as I've nearly used the first one up). Hugs & joy, T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

Sam Cole said...

I have used Aveeno before and i like them a lot. You look great in those sunnies and the hat too. Oh why is summer almost over, it seems like I have never been to the beach yet, lol


Julie Corbisiero said...

Hi Kim, Aveeno makes good products and I know these sunscreens are very good! Love your new sunglasses and the bracelet. Looks like you are all set for sun protection. The pool area is so pretty at your aunt place! Take care and enjoy the weekend.

Sam said...

You look so glamorous in your chic sunnies and hat Kim. I need to try out this range. I enjoyed reading your thoughts on my last post. Have a splendid weekend!

Layla Sprinkles said...

Your photos are SO pretty!! So relaxing and lovely - you look gorgeous with the sunglasses - very Hollywood glam! :)

So many people don't use sun lotion so it's lovely to see more and more bloggers writing about different brands and products to use when in the sun! :)

crafty-zone said...

This sun lotion is interesting and you look so lovely in those sunnies, they're so chic!


Milu Sosa said...

Your reviews are always so detailed and informative!!! love all the information you shared :) the sunglasses are a beauty and they look great on you and loved the make a wish bracelet! I want one too!
I've following your blog for a while and I just realized I was not following you on G+ (silly me!)lol well you have one more over there!


littlemissandrea said...

I used an Aveeno sunscreen a couple years back and loved it. Glad to see that they're expanding their range 'cause I love their products!

Hope you had a fun day by the pool - the sunglasses are so chic & I also love Dogeared's simple pieces :)

Ivana said...

Sounds really good, they have great products!


miss b said...

Well we certainly need our sunscreen here in England which isn't always the case! I hope this weather lasts.
Great review Kim and what a lovely pool area. It's surprising what a difference colourful plants can make. You look so stylish in your hat and fabulous sunglasses!

Coco said...

I have only recently realised that chemical sunscreens can cause averse reaction to my daughter's skin and to my own. No matter how high the protection factor, it must be provided by natural ingredients. Which so far I've only found with very expenses products (like 40euro for 30ml). So I'm going and check out Aveeno line straightaway. The spray will be my first choice! Thank you for the review Kim!!
Ps. Those sunnies look amazing on you!!

Rosemary Nardone said...

I don't think you can go wrong with any of their products. These look really good, will have to look for them in my local CVS. Thanx again!!

Shea Coleman said...

I love this!! I don't use sunscreen because it is heavy but since this is a lighter sunscreen I would love to try it out. How is Ohio Kim? Are you living there now?
