Aveeno Ultra-Calming Moisturizing Cream Cleanser Review

My sister came to visit the family during the holiday and left behind Aveeno Ultra-Calming Moisturizing Cream Cleanser.  I’m a huge fan of Aveeno products.  In fact, Aveeno’s Daily Lotion is a household staple.  As a beauty blogger, I like to try out different products and gave Aveeno Ultra-Calming Moisturizing Cream Cleanser a try!

Product Details

This gentle, soap-free, creamy cleanser with skin conditioners lifts away dirt, oil and make-up while moisturizing dry and sensitive skin.   With an extract of Feverfew, a natural ingredient related to chamomile known for its soothing properties, your sensitive skin will look and feel its healthy best.

Approx. Price: $6
Where to Purchase? Mass market retailers

The Bottom Line

Aveeno Ultra-Calming Moisturizing Cream Cleanser is a disappointment!  The directions on the bottle read to massage into skin for 30 seconds before rinsing off for a good cleaning.  Yes, it does clean, but Aveeno Ultra-Calming Moisturizing Cream Cleanser is actually pretty drying for a cream based cleanser.  Is it gentle? Nope.  Did it remove makeup? Nope (most face washes don’t).  Did it moisturize my dry skin? Nope.  After multiple uses, my skin was left feeling tight, stripped and dry!

Maybe there is a reason why my sister left this face wash behind!

We love everything about Lanvin’s Strap Sandal shoes. The style and design are fabulous.

Too many clunky and heavy versions of this shoe.This is the real deal.The platform sole makes them very comfortable even with the sexy high heel.  Pair with a pencil skirt, short skirt, dress or this season’s ever-so hot pant suit especially in camel!

They’re made of lambskin and feature an adjustable ankle strap, gold toned hardware , covered platform, covered heel and squared toe. Chic, edgy and pricey…but you’re worth it! Click the link to shop: Shoes at mytheresa.com

Maggie’s Tips – Sunday Funday

· I chose these specific four shadows because I think they all work together, or stand on their own individually. For a natural look, sweep either of the lighter two shades (light champagne and pink satin) across the lids. For a more dramatic look, layer on the brown in the crease and use the plum as a liner.

· I love Hoola. In a pinch, you can also smudge some of the Hoola on your lids as eyeshadow!

· Layering the Benetint under the rosy pink gloss gives it a deeper hue, adding more sophistication for nighttime.

Annie’s Tips – Scene Queen

· The four shadow shades that I chose are great for creating different eye looks. You can do a subtle eye with the beige and misty blue shades, or you can really glam it up with a dramatic navy-gray smoky eye.

· It was really important for me to add High Beam in my kit, because it gives a brilliant and glowing look to your complexion. I love to pat a little of it on the center of my eye lids and in the middle of my lips. This makes your eyes look big and round, and your lips more plump.

· If you find yourself with just a gloss in your bag, don’t panic! This gloss is the perfect shade to wear on your lips and blend on cheeks. It has gold pearl mixed with beautiful juicy coral that will bring your complexion back to life. Tips From Benefit’s Maggie & Annie 962483698086939179 3163975126727798255?l=blog.sephora

Chanel Pink Explosion Joues Contraste Blush

To complement the dark, smokey eyes and soft lips of fall’s Les Contrastes de Chanel makeup collection, Chanel crafted three of the most beautiful Joues Contraste Powder Blushes ($42) I’ve seen from the line in a really long time. I mean, just look at ‘em in their pans!

Rose Temptation (a warm and shimmery rosy brown), Plum Attraction (a shimmery deep plum) and Pink Explosion (a shimmery cool pink) wow me in ways that last year’s Fresque didn’t.

All three of the new limited edition shades pack off-the-charts pigmentation yet still look pretty natural at the same time. The recipe Chanel used of subtle, shimmery powders and buttery, blendable colors just works, and like previously released blushes in the Joues Contraste line, all of them have the subtle signature JC rose scent.
