ITEM OF THE WEEK is a weekly series on Stained Couture that highlights a product we’re currently loving. This week: Aveeno Clear Complexion Foam Cleanser.
I’m having a serious case of the Mondays. Although there a a few reason, I believe I know the main reason; I had to wear boots today. It’s the middle of April I to pull pair boots from the back of my closet that I did prepare to see for another 6-7 months. One day it’s 70 degrees without a cloud in the sky. The next, it’s a cloudy 48 with high winds and I’m trying to figure out how many layers should I wear. I know they say dress for the season, but sundresses and sandals in 40 degree weather is not a good idea. Not only has it been difficult to stick to seasonal outfits, but also seasonal skincare regimens.
I already have combination skin, but dealing with combination skin in combination weather is stressful. So, until Mother Nature picks a season, I’ve been looking for products that can deal with my oily skin on warm days and not dry out my skin on cold day. One product that has been amazing to my skin in these trying days is Aveeno Clear Complexion Foam Cleanser.
I stumbled across this cleanser while looking for a gentle everyday cleanser. I have combination skin that’s oily when it’s warm and mostly normal when it’s cool. This cleanser has salicylic acid to help treat breakouts. Although its been a while since I’d used any Aveeno products, I did recall that they were pretty good.
First off, the you only need one pump; so a little goes a long way. Also, it’s very gentle and soothing on the skin and rinses off easily. There was no residue or drying feel afterwards, just clean and smooth skin. After a few days of use, I noticed that my skin was clear and even brighter. Also, the little breakouts I had when I first started using this cleanser were gone after a couple of days.
In the end, try this cleanser if you need a cleanser that’s gentle, treats acne, and won’t dry your skin out. You can pick this cleanser up at most retailers that carry Aveeno products, such as Target.
