The first thing that causes ageing to be visible is the buildup of dead skin. A good way of ensuring a healthier skin is ensuring a physical turnover that is mild 🙂 but one thing that must be kept in mind is the MILDNESS. If the scrub is harsh it will do more damage than benefit.
Aveeno is a well known brand that usually makes mild products that are suitable for sensitive skin. Is it a good buy then?
What is it and who is it for?
A daily use scrub
$6.99 for 5 oz

What does the Brand Claim about Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub?
Helps improve skin tone, texture and clarity to reveal brighter, more radiant skin.
This daily scrub helps improve skin tone, texture and clarity. Its unique formula combines ACTIVE NATURALS® moisture-rich soy extract with micro beads to gently exfoliate while you cleanse, leaving your skin looking luminous. It’s also oil free, soap free, noncomedogenic, hypoallergenic and gentle enough for everyday use, even on sensitive skin.
How to Use:
Apply generously over face and neck during the day 20 minutes. Reapply in case of prolonged sun exposure
This product comes in a handy little tube. The packaging is quite standard. The scrub itself is mild and soft with mild micro beads. Next this scrub does smell decent and is actually quite effective. BUT again, it has a tendency to irritate your skin. If you do too much of a good thing, that turns bad too!
But let me bring a VERY IMPORTANT concern to light. This product contains plastic micro beads. Yes plastic. This stuff is extremely bad for the environment. Read more about this issue online. So first off, a product that damages the environment and flora and fauna is not recommended. Secondly, this is an average Joe. Aveeno products are generally good, but not this one. I rather recommend you another miracle exfoliation product-the liquid gold by Alpha H. It is so much milder and DOESNOT irritate the skin at all! Read more about it here 😉

Overall Would I repurchase and recommend?
Nope. I am pretty blunt about this one here. There are thousands of daily scrubs to choose from. Why choose something that will harm the environment 🙂
