If you’re the type of woman who has got all the time in the world for your daily skincare and makeup routine, we applaud you — we even envy you! — but that’s just not us over here at Edit Seven. We’re perpetually busy and we’re always looking for ways to increase our efficiency, especially when it comes to getting out the door every morning. High-performing dual-action products? Now you’re speaking our language.
With that summer heat we’ve been waiting oh-so-long for finally on its way, we wanted to find a truly great daily moisturizer with SPF coverage at a truly great price. This is what attracted us to the new Aveeno Ultra-Calming Daily Moisturizer Mineral SPF 30 for our latest #WeTriedIt review. Keep reading to find out what we think, and why you might want to pick it up along with their Daily Moisturizing Body Lotion SPF 15 at your nearest Shoppers Drug Mart before May 18th, 2018.
Made with Oat and Feverfew (an ingredient related to Chamomile), these two key natural ingredients are known to be two of nature’s most effective and clinically proven ingredients for sensitive skin. This daily moisturizer caught our eye for its “ultra-calming” promise with the added ability to provide SPF 30 coverage with 100% mineral sunscreen filters. Light and fast absorbing, this moisturizer is shown to reduce the appearance of redness and irritated dry skin in just one week, and instantly helps calm and soothe sensitive skin.
The Price: $19.97 – $22.99 CAD / 73mL
The Retailer: Shoppers Drug Mart
As one of the best (and most convenient) retailers selling Aveeno products for those of us in Canada, Shoppers Drug Mart is our top recommendation for where to get this product. Plus, right now you can get 2,000 PC Optimum bonus points when you buy any two (2) participating AVEENO® products at Shoppers Drug Mart until May 18, 2018.*
What We Think:
There’s no argument that this daily moisturizer is great for all year-round care and protection, but you know what we think it will be really great for? Taking care of our skin this summer. Because it’s light, it won’t slide off your face when it’s hot out. We actually put this to the test during an unexpected spring heat wave on a recent visit to New York City and it worked, very well. Also, if your skin is prone to irritation from the summer heat, the ultra-calming qualities of this moisturizer will be perfect for your ultra-sensitive skin. But best of all? With SPF 30 coverage built right into it, this Aveeno Ultra-Calming Daily Moisturizer eliminates one extra step in your everyday morning routine, and cuts down on the amount of product you need to put on your face for skin protection. That is a serious WIN in our books. Besides, what could be better proof of the quality of this product than when your apothecary-business-owning-bestie tries it and immediately announces that she’s buying one for herself too!
If you’re shopping for two Aveeno products to get those 2,000 PC Optimum bonus points we recommend also picking up the Daily Moisturizing Lotion SPF 15 for super easy full-body moisture and coverage this summer.
