Aveeno MaxGlow Serum + Primer and Micellar Gel Cleanser Review

Aveeno MaxGlow Micellar Gel Cleanser

Happy Wednesday!

Today I want to review these two products since I have been testing them out for a few weeks and I’m pleasantly surprised with both!

I know that those of you who are familiar with my blog and have read my previous posts are thinking how on earth this OIL primer is working out for me since I have an extremely oily skin type. And all I have to say to that is; yes, I know I’m shocked as well! The first time I tried this oil/serum product as a primer I was going out for only an hour or two so I thought that even if it looked terrible and made me look like an oil slick it wouldn’t be too bad. However, after the few hours I noticed that my skin didn’t look like an oily mess; it looked hydrated and my foundation was very smooth and healthy looking! I guess my skin didn’t feel the need to produce a massive amount of oil because I had applied this product? – honestly, I’m not quite sure how this works but I’m so glad I tried it! The scent is very pleasant and once you shake it up the oil and serum blend together and after patting it on the skin, it allows foundation to glide on seamlessly on top.

Aveeno MaxGlow Serum + Primer

This cleanser is a nice change from the ones that I usually like; which strip my skin of all product/oils. Because my skin is very oily and I usually feel the need for a cleanser that deep cleans. This leaves my skin clean but very comfortable as it hydrates while it cleanses so I don’t feel that pulling sensation when I dry my face. I have been using this in the mornings when I don’t need such a deep clean and this product leaves my skin with a glow that is surprising as I have never had a cleanser do that before!

I highly recommend these products if you have a dry skin type and for oily skin types as well as I have recently read a lot about why our skin produces so much oil and it’s usually due to it being dehydrated!
