My fairy blogmother shipped a whole slew of Johnson & Johnson products for me to review. I don’t have the best skin, so I was thrilled to try some new products!
I didn’t realize that Johnson & Johnson makes both Aveeno and Purpose skincare products. And did you know that Aveeno has a great new sunscreen line? The baby sunblock SPF 45 works great on Miss A, who has very fair skin. I sent it to daycare for her playground time. She usually looks like Pigpen from the old Peanuts cartoons when I pick her up in the afternoons, but at least I don’t have to worry about her getting sunburned. I have also tried the SPF 45 continuous spray sunblock on myself and the girls. It’s lightweight and easy to toss in my pool bag or our jog stroller, because Lord knows I have been lugging enough snacks, baby wipes, and other paraphernalia around this summer to outfit a small day camp.
I was also sent Aveeno’s new ultra calming line, which includes the natural ingredient feverfew. I love this line! The daily moisturizer, with an SPF of 15, is my favorite. It’s lightweight and I put it on before applying my makeup. I also love the night cream. At 37, I’ve got that lovely combination skin complete with teenage acne and little lines around my eyes, so apparently my skin can’t decide what the hell age it is and is rebelling. The foaming cleanser is almost a little too lightweight for me, but I highly recommend both the daily moisturizer and the heavier moisturizing cream.
Lastly, I was sent several Purpose skincare products. My favorite product is the redness reducing moisturizer with the higher SPF of 30, especially on these hot weekends when I’m outside quite a bit. I prefer a lightweight daily moisturizer and I have blotchy skin that freckles easily so I’m a sucker for any product that will help tone down the ruddiness of my complexion while at the same time being gentle. I’ve also used the Purpose Gentle Cleansing Wash on the girls in the tub.
Now, if I can just keep Miss A from showering herself with dirt at daycare.
