Review: Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Cleansing Pads

I'm always on the lookout for a great cleanser.  One that removes all of my makeup but isn't too harsh on my normal to dry skin.  I detest cleansers that strip my skin and leave my skin feel extremely tight and often irritated.  These appealed to me because they promised to leave my skin feeling soft and smooth and hey who doesn't love an all-in-one product.

There are 28 self-foaming pads in this tub.  The pads are dual sided - one side is smooth for using on more sensitive areas (lips, eyes etc) and the other side is textured to give the face a gentle exfoliation.

What they say:
"Positively Radiant Daily Cleansing Pads help improve skin tone, texture, and clarity to reveal brighter, more radiant skin.  These dual-textured cleansing pads, moistened with foaming skin-conditioning cleansers and natural soy extracts, leave your skin soft, smooth and even-looking."

I have been using these pads at night to remove my makeup and cleanse my face, I think they would be a little unnecessary to use in the morning and I much prefer to just use a gentle cleansing milk in the mornings.  They are self-foaming so as soon as you start moving it over your face it foams up.  I like to rinse out the pad with warm water once I'm finished and use it to rinse the cleanser off my face.  The pad is very thick and can be wrung out in the water and still not break or disintegrate.  The only negative thing I have to say about these pads is even though it recommends to use the smooth side on your eyes, when I did this my eyes begun to sting quite badly and I had to rinse them out with cold water.  I would NOT recommend using these on your eyes at all.  Apart from this I love using them, they leave my skin feeling clean and fresh and even when using the exfoliating side my skin doesn't feel at all tight or dry.  

This has been a welcome addition to my night-time skincare routine and I highly recommend them.  I purchased mine from iherb for around $8 but they can also be purchased from Priceline and other chemists where they stock Aveeno.
