Aveeno Smart Essentials Nighttime Moisture and Aveeno Giveaway

I actually received this last year, and forgot all about it until this winter. My bad! :X I always believe it's better to do it now than never do it at all. I thought it's about time I review it since I'm almost done with the product.

Where to purchase: drugstores, mass merchandiser, or online at
Price: $14.99 for 1.7 oz/ 48 g

Made in NJ

Description on the back:
oil-free - hypoallergenic - noncomedogenic

Get great, healthy looking skin when you moisturize at night. Diet, free-radicals, environmental toxins, and a hectic lifestyle can lead to stressed skin that looks dull and tired. Formulated with antioxidant Southernwood extract, Smart Essentials nighttime moisture infusion helps keep what's good for your skin in, and what's bad out. It replenishes skin's moisture barrier while you sleep so you can wake up to skin that feels refreshed, renewed and ready to take on another day.

Smart skincare that knows what your skin needs and what it doesn't because:

it keeps the good in
* Hydrates your skin to help offset dryness caused by environmental stressors
* Helps support the natural moisture reserves of your skin during its nightly renewal phase, leaving your skin feeling soft and smooth
* Infuses skin with a blend of antioxidants and vitamins

and the bad out
* Fortifies your skin's moisture barrier to hep resist the attack of daily environmental stress
Thoughts: When it comes to night creams, I get really excited! With my aging skin, I feel that I need more of a thicker product. I was really excited to get this. The reason why it took so long to use this is that I feel that once you open up a product, you have to use it right away or else it won't be as effective. That's only for skin care. I don't feel that way with cosmetics. Once it's open, germs can go in and the air inside the sealed package will not be the same. Since I was using a night cream, I waited until I could use this.

The first thing I did once I opened the package is smell the product. I'm not too sure what the smell is. It's definitely floral. In all honesty, it bothered me in the beginning since I'm not a floral person. After a week, the smell did not bother me at all. I actually don't mind the smell. :) If you're a floral person, this is perfect. Even if you're not a floral person, it might not be bad. I'm just sensitive when it comes to smell.
Now for the consistency of the night cream, it's on the creamier side. It isn't thick but it actually hydrates pretty well! I like how it spreads on the face, as well as, the cooling sensation. It definitely helped me with my dry, winter weather. I recommend this for someone who is mid to dry skin. I actually think it's pretty good for normal skin as well

I love that it's oil-free. I cannot stand products that have oil. I'm not too sure why we would want to put oil on our face. Most people including myself want the dry, glowy skin rather than greasy, oily face. I could be wrong on that. :X

It also has vitamins A, C, & E, as well as, antioxidants. These are suppose to help your skin resist the daily environmental stresses.

* Aveeno; a brand that uses natural ingredients.
* Vitamins A, C, & E.
* Antioxidants.
* Oil-free, hypoallergenic, noncomedgenic, & dermatologist-tested.
* Get use to scent.
* Creamy texture.
* Hydrating.
* Help resist the attack of daily environmental stresses.

* Floral scent; only if you don't like.

Would repurchase: Yes.

I got their cleanser for free but I did not think it's anything unique, well it didn't do something special for my skin.
