I recently had my first proper try of Aveeno products and have been really impressed by the quality and gentleness of their products. You can read my review of the Aveeno Positvely Radiant Daily Moisturizer here. Today, I want to talk about their Positvely Radiant Daily Scrub which I have been using almost daily for the last couple of months.
This daily scrub is supposed to “help improve skin tone, texture and clarity to reveal brighter, more radiant skin”. As with the other products in the range, they utilize soy extract and combine it with “smooth, round microbeads to gently exfoliate”. Aveeno claims that it is “gentle enough for everyday use and for sensitive skin”.

I am really happy with the results and have to say that I agree with the claims. It is definitely of the most gentle scrubs I have and works very effectively with no harshness, stinging or causing my skin to turn red and blotchy with sensitivity as harsher exfoliators tend to do. Also, I had no squeaky- overly-clean-but-damn-now-it’s-too-dry experience with this one, thankfully!
I do feel that this scrub helps improve my skin tone and texture. It does leave my skin feeling really soft and the softness lingers long after rinsing off. I actually feel a difference when I wake up in the mornings if I forget/am too lazy to exfoliate the night before. I would say it definitely does a good job of cleaning my pores and giving me a more radiant complexion. I have been using their Daily Moisturizer too so I am sure teaming both up really does add to the effectiveness.
The exfoliating beads are micro-sized and just right in my opinion. I have tried exfoliators that are way too mild that I end up unsure if they are actually effective yet I hate ones with mega beads that feel terrible on my skin. This one is perfect in my opinion.
As with their Daily Moisturizer, it has a beautiful light refreshing fragrance that I actually enjoy although people sensitive or allergic to fragrances might need to take that into consideration.
Overall, this is a scrub that I really enjoy and I will definitely repurchase after I run out. Definitely worth a try, I say!
