Review: AVEENO Positively Nourishing Smoothing Body Wash

I’m going to admit right off the bat that my family is an Aveeno family. I use many of their products and so does my husband, and even my one-year old son. Needless to say, I couldn’t wait to give the Positively Nourishing Smoothing Body Wash with Pomegranate & Rice a try.

The body wash had a nice fragrance to it. Not overly fruity, strong enough to notice, but subtle enough to not overpower any other fragrance you may want to wear. 

The product is somewhat thick and gel-like. It was a little tough to squeeze out of the bottle so I removed the cap and was able to squeeze out as much as I needed. I used it with a loofah and with a wash rag. With the loofah I got tons of suds and really could feel the exfoliants work their magic on my skin. With the rag, I got less suds but felt like I could really pin-point areas that needed extra exfoliation. The rice beads and walnut shells are ground to the perfect size so you can feel them “scrub” without irritating your skin. The added benefit of pomegranate is that it’s a known antioxidant to help keep skin looking young and healthy. It can also help prevent and treat acne, which would make this a great scrub if you suffer from acne on your back or shoulders.

If you’re ever looking for a great scrub to use on a regular basis, this is a fantastic product to help polish your skin without breaking your budget. I’d also suggest it for those of you who are big on self-tanning; this is a perfect product to use on your body before a spray tan.

Bottom Line…

Big bang for your buck, a beauty stash must-have.
