2016 Aveeno Active Naturals Ambassador Welcome Box And $25 PayPal Giveaway

Happy Weekend Everybody! Aveeno asked me to be a Blog Ambassador for 2016.
I happily said YES. This will be my 3rd year with Aveeno! I'm very proud. 
Below are the contents of the Welcome Box they sent me and a Giveaway for YOU.
This definitely calls for celebration! :)

The welcome box contained both new & classic favorites by Aveeno. It also contained gifts. 


Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Body Wash & Lotion

The other day, I was reading blogs. One of my regular readers, Shireen from Reflection of Sanity Blog, gave me a shout out in her blog post. She said, "I have since used only Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Body Wash after reading a dear blogging friend Kim, the very lovely blogger behind A Very Sweet Blog." That made me feel so good! When you blog, you never know how much you're reaching people. So this made me SMILE. As someone with both DRY/SENSITIVE SKIN, I'm a huge fan of both of these products (read my reviews here and here) and cannot recommend them enough. I also keep large bottles of both in my bathroom (join me on Snapchat to always get the inside scoop: averysweetblog).

Aveeno Positively Radiant Makeup Removing Wipes

Aveeno also included a pack of their Aveeno Positively Radiant Makeup Removing Wipes. Thank you Aveeno, because I needed more (all the swatching & makeup removal I do for my blog). I've had the chance to try their Ultra Calming Makeup Removing Wipes (sensitive skin) and these. Both are great (see both reviews here and here), but the Positively Radiant wipes are my favorite (check out my review to see how much makeup one wipe takes off)! So if you have dry/sensitive skin, don't be afraid to get these. They work great for me and will for you.

Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer 

I've had much success with Aveeno's Positively Radiant Wipes (above) and Positively Radiant Targeted Tone Corrector in the past. The positively radiant skincare products ... not so much (due to my dry/sensitive skin)... My skin does better with Aveeno's Ultra Calming Skincare Collection. My mom's skin however, loves the entire Positively Radiant line! So she will be testing out the positively radiant daily moisturizer Aveeno sent me and I will give you guys a full review soon.

Aveeno Pure Renewal Sulfate Free Shampoo & Conditioner

I've been with Aveeno for 3 years and I have been OBLIVIOUS to the fact, that they have shampoo & conditioner (hair care products). Did you know that? Have you tried any of their hair care products? Well, I'm so happy they sent me their BESTSELLER Aveeno Pure Renewal Sulfate Free Shampoo & Conditioner. I just gave these a whirl the other day and I am impressed. Let me continue using them and I will give you a full review soon.

S'well Bottle

One of the gifts Aveeno sent me was a S'well Bottle (their goal is to rid the world of PLASTIC BOTTLES)! It's a STAINLESS STEEL (not aluminum)/insulated bottle that keeps COLD liquids cold for 24 hours and HOT liquids hot for 12 hours. This is going to be great this Summer when I get on the road. What I like about S'well is that they are supporters of the US Fund for UNICEF. They donate money to help provide CLEAN WATER to the world's most vulnerable children. They also support American Forests. I LOVE their philosophy! Aveeno always teaches me something new and I'm so happy to share them with you!

UP! by Jawbone

A fitness tracker! I've seen them around. I didn't have one! Thank you Aveeno! UP by Jawbone is a SMARTCOACH with Activity Tracking, Sleep Tracking, and Food Logging. I can't wait to use mine!

  3. Congratulations on being Aveeno ambassador again, Kim and one that is very well deserved too! You and your blog are reaching out to your readers, Kim and I usually check out your recommendations because I know you don't sugar coat anything! I plan to purchase Aveeno day moisturizer, the one with SPF30 to try soon, not sure which one is that but fingers crossed it'll work for my dry skin.

  11. I did not know Aveeno had shampoos and conditioners too! Now I'm curious. I have been using Kleen Kanteens for years now for my drinking water. The stainless steel is amazing. Water tastes so much better in it and you don't have to worry about the bottle in a hot car!
