NEW! AVEENO Skin Relief Gentle Scent Collection Review & $25 PayPal Giveaway

Hey Everybody! I received a package from AVEENO over the weekend! It contained their NEW AVEENO Skin Relief Gentle Scent Collection. It's their first line of SCENTED body washes (soap free, dye free, allergy tested, $6.49 - $7.49) and lotions (dye free, allergy tested, $8.99 - $9.99) specifically designed for SENSITIVE SKIN. "These gently scented and effective products are proven to soothe itchy, dry skin. These dermatologist-tested, allergy-tested formulas, infused with Gentle Scent, are clinically shown to be as gentle on sensitive skin as fragrance-free alternatives." There are two scents! Nourishing Coconut (sent to me to try) & Soothing Oat and Chamomile. Being a 2014-15 AVEENO Ambassador, I've tried nearly all of their body washes & lotions. The formula for the new one, seems to be the same great formula...only scented. The problem I have is, the scent comes across artificial (plastic). It wasn't the TRUE coconut scent I was hoping for, so personally I'll be sticking with their other formulas. Nonetheless, I would like to give you the opportunity to try them (available Walmart, CVS and Kroger October 2015 AND merchandisers nationwide January 2016) or any other of your AVEENO favorites. I'm giving ONE lucky reader of AVSB $25 PayPal to spend as they please. I would send the products themselves, but when shipping liquids, mail carriers/shipping gets difficult. This giveaway is open WORLDWIDE! Use the Rafflecopter widget below to enter and GOOD LUCK! AVEENO also sent me the cutest COOKIE WREATH! It was beautiful and the cookies were so delicious! THANK YOU AVEENO! It's been an honor & wonderful being an AVEENO AMBASSADOR. Stop by tomorrow for another giveaway :)

Shame that scent was artificial, it is one of the things that puts me off about a product. How cute the packaging and the cookies look... yummy!

They put together such a cute package. It's a bummer that the coconut scent smelled artificial. Coconut can be such a tricky scent to get right.

Lilli said...

Ah, Id be very curious to try this new line even though the fact u felt the scent artificial made me a little hesitant, Id be more interested on the cookies!:P Btw, this brand is really great and u Kim have been an amazing ambassador during these 2 years! xo

Ivana Jeknic said...

Love the review and the cookies looks yummy xoxo

I had so much high hopes when I saw the word 'coconut' on it, I mean I adore anything coconut but shame that the scent is artificial. :-( Aveeno is usually spot on with their products but I will be giving this a miss.

Hugs, Kim, Merry Christmas my dear friend and a very Happy New Year to you too. Knowing you through blogging has been one of the biggest highlights of my blogging journey, thank you for being so wonderful.

Thanks for the honest review!

I love how they made stuff for sensitive skin!! Too bad about the artificial coconut scent!

nerline said...

I love Aveeno, but let's face it, nobody wants to walk around smelling like plastic. I was trying to picture in my head what artificial plastic smells like. I would have think harder. Great giveaway, Kim! Merry Christmas!!

Miss Val's Creations said...

The packaging is beautiful! It's too bad the coconut scent wasn't just right. Happy Holidays!


What a lovely giveaway Kim, and the package seems really great that they put together, nonetheless. I like coconut and the way it smells, but that's a pity that it wasn't as you had hoped. I like some of Aveeno products too! Wishing you a marvellous Christmas holiday! :) /Madison

Sorry to hear that you wasn't pleased with the scent of this line of Aveeno, thank you for your honest review, dear. What's more, great giveaway, Kim.
PS: Merry Christmas to you and your family, dear!

Gabrielle said...

It's a pity the scent slightly resembled plastic, I find that's often the case with coconut or 'tropical' scents that aren't leaning towards the sweeter side! Great giveaway by the way Kim, I've entered! :)


Jalisa said...

I've used Aveeno in the past and liked it, but have since switched between Eucerin, Shea Moisture and Andalou Naturals. One of the reasons I had stopped using Aveeno was that for the price, I didn't feel as though there was enough product in their lotions. I appreciate that even though you are a brand ambassador for Aveeno, you mentioned a flaw within the recent formula, which shows that you're unbiased and provide honest reviews, plus you're assisting them in areas that they can improve.

Thanks so much for sharing and providing us with the opportunity to win a gift card :) I hope you had a wonderful day; Happy Holidays!



Andrea said...
