I cared for my skin from the inside out with Aveeno® as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #Aveeno
Okay, I’m kidding. For the record, I never really want to smell like a goat. No offense to goat lovers out there. But I’ll tell you what…fragrances make my head hurt. And not even a little. I’m talkin’, straight up passed out in bed don’t even know my name-type hurt.
I’ve suffered from migraines. Listen here. If I had to pick between giving birth and having a migraine, I’d pick giving birth. Call me crazy but you may know what I’m talking about if you’ve ever had a migraine.
Years ago I swore off of fragrances completely. Everything from my body products to my laundry detergent and dish liquid went fragrance-free. And the migraines disappeared. I can’t say that’s the reason WHY they disappeared but I’m running with it and will continue to live as fragrance-free as possible.
When I heard about Aveeno® Skin Relief Gentle Scents Wash, I was a skeptic because what could be considered “gentle” to a brand could easily send my head into a whirlwind in a fragranced nightmare.
But but but…NO. They really do mean gentle. And so, I live to see another day.
There are several reasons why I love this wash and it not feeling like a coconut is punching me in the face is one of them. I also love it because…
- It feels sooooooo good. Soap-free actually means something, girl, because this wash has me feeling like I’m bathing with liquid silk. It feels great going on and after rinsing off, I don’t get that dry and squeaky feeling.
- It has oatmeal in it! This means it can help soothe my postpartum eczema and help restore my skin’s pH.
- It smells good! Why don’t ALL brands have products with “gentle scents”? It just makes sense. This wash is far from overpowering yet it smells coconutty and sweet while you’re lathering it all over. It’s just enough to give you a whiff without overwhelming you. This is a good thing.
Judge all you’d like but I’m going to purchase a few bottles of these and place them under the tree for Mama Clumps.
She’s such a fan of this wash and I’m a fan of practical gifts that people will actually use. Everyone wins! Get more details about this fantastic wash here.
