Johnson & Johnson Informative - Kudos to Aveeno w/Sunscreen

Review by PleasedAsPunch on 2008-03-21
Ok. I had dragged my feet for years due to loyalty to Vaseline skin care products. But when my preferred "Daily Skin Shield - Protective w/spf 15" became unavailable at my usual point of purchase, I tried Johnson & Johnson's "Aveeno Active Naturals - Daily Moisturizing Lotion with Sunscreen (spf15)" at the behest of my daughter, a past cosmetology student.

I have now been using Aveeno for three weeks and there is a visible difference in the lines surrounding my mouth. They are significantly diminished.
I have been using Aveeno as I had been using the Vaseline lotion, on every reachable part of my body, so this would exclude only that part of my back I cannot possibly reach without being double jointed.

Aveeno is a little more expensive, but if you are the slightest bit picky and vain (as I am) then I recommend trying this product for a change. Make your own conclusions. I, for one, am extremely pleased and will most likely continue with the Aveeno.

I love Aveeno, I use the calming face lotion and it has drastically helped with my red tight flaky skin.

Thanks, pleased. I will give it a try. I usually use Palmer's Cocoa Butter lotion for my body (love the smell and so does everyone else) which also works very well. It doesn't have sunscreen though, so the Aveeno would be good for day time especially.

Face is another matter. I get a lotion from my dermatologist that he recommends w/SPF 15. I also use Clarins products (for face). They work excellent too.

Thank you for the info--we can all use this kind of helpful info--including the men.

I try to push the sunscreen 'cause, well, face it; none of us are getting any younger. And my mother had skin cancer on her face... It was not pretty... seriously, it was UGLY. And it took three surgeries to get it all. I am going ot do everything in my power to ensure I (and anyone I can tell) do not go through thatkind of experience. My Mom's nose looks like a boxing champ's now; all cauliflowery and junk...My sister's had melanoma removed three times form her back... I really don't want to got through any of this stuff...So for anyone out there not using lotion, use one and make sure it has an spf of at least 15 in it.

Pleased...do you think 26 is too young to use this? Or should I wait until I'm old, like 40 or something like that?

Pleased, excellent review. I've not tried this particular product but fully intend on doing so. I'm glad you brought up the subject of the importance of sunscreen. Skin cancer can occur at almost any age and is many times preventable with some caution on the part of the invididual. You apparently have a history of it in your family and I feel this probably makes you more aware than many. Thanks for the reminder for everyone.
