Beauty Review: Aveeno Positively Radiant Intensive Night Cream thanks to Aveeno
Hello, life saver. I recently was introduced to Aveeno's Positively Radiant Intensive Night Cream and I can say it's going to become a permanent resident on my make-up counter.
Let me remind you what my life is like. I work part-time as a casino croupier. So I work at any hours of the day - night shift, day shift, the dreaded morning shift (4am-midday) and the afternoon shifts. Work can be so unpredictable meaning my sleeping patterns are always compromised and I can lose out on alot of sleep. Like, who wants to finish work at 12PM then head home to sleep during the day in hot muggy weather? Or sleeping from 6am-2pm when the world is up, about and bustling?
This also means I do blog work at any time of the day. I'm usually up until 4am doing work or pushing for a deadline. And then I squeeze in social events, fashion events and family events.
Although I like to call myself somewhat of a free spirit I can be chained to my all-over-the-place lifestyle, with too many deadlines, in between work-and-recovery modes. So you can guess that sometimes my skin just isn't the best?
I woke up last week and closely inspected my skin in the morning. I don't have many clogged pores or crazy pimples, yet I do notice my skin tone is super uneven and I have dark circles under my eyes. So I thought, I get bad sleep, and I know it contributes to my bad skin most of the time, so I should really aid my body into helping repair it more easily.
Hello again, life saver. I cleanse my skin every night, then apply the Aveeno Night Cream in generous amounts. The oil-free cream wasn't heavy, that's what I liked the most.
It goes on smooth and once its on it doesn't feel heavy and thick on the skin, feeling fully absorbed. After a couple of nights, waking up in the morning to see my face doesn't scare me anymore. My uneven skin-tone on my cheeks started evening out (from teenage years of popping pimples) and spots started to disappear. The texture is even smoother, I'm starting to use less BB cream.
The best thing though, is that my dark circles under the eyes aren't as dark any more. No more Panda Face. Aveeno Night Cream has perfected the technique of processing soy beans that retain the integrity of the proteins to provide immediate and long-term benefits making dull, uneven skin more brighter and radiant.
Huzzah to me! I can go clubbing tonight (there's an event at my work place) and yes its a Thursday night, but for shift workers, this is our Saturday night, so hush. At least Aveeno Night Cream is on my side.
