Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub Review: Does It Work?

Yes, the brightening daily scrub works on all skin types, even on dry, sensitive skin. It leaves the skin brighter, smooth, and supple. The gentle microbeads of this physical exfoliant gently buffs away dead skin cells, dirt, oil, and bacteria. It helps improve the skin tone and offers a youthful glow and a natural flush that is nothing like the angry redness of harsh scrubbing.

It does not clog the pores, instead clears away the debris and residues to reduce the pore sizes. The creamy, gel-like consistency with smooth exfoliating beads does not irritate the skin. The product has a mild, pleasant scent that does not trigger sensitivities. It works a bit like a cleanser too, as it lathers up a bit to cleanse while exfoliating the skin. This clarifying scrub can be included in either the morning or night time skin care routines to achieve brighter, softer, and healthier skin.

Value For Money

This brightening scrub for acne-prone skin is a good purchase for your money. It is not a big splurge but offers excellent results even at its pocket-friendly price. It also lasts long as a little product goes a long way. It has an efficient packaging with an easy-to-carry long tube with reinforced closure that keeps the product safe from being exposed to external light and pollution.

The Final Verdict

If you are on the lookout for a gentle physical exfoliant that does not damage your skin or the environment without burning a hole through your budget, the Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub is your go-to buddy. The gentle microbeads do not cause micro-tears, but sloths off dead and dry skin cells to reveal healthy, bright skin. You can use this product on the upper arms, neck, and chest areas for regular scrubbing and exfoliation. It is free of harmful chemicals that might aggravate acne or sensitive skin. The dermatologist-approved formula has a fresh fragrance for a refreshing beginning or end to your day. However, avoid using this product on damaged or broken skin or extremely active acne.

Editor’s Rating: 3.5

We understand the reservations you may have against a physical exfoliant, but this product has done away with all the shortcomings of one. A good scrub can be the single most important factor standing in the way of radiant, smooth skin. We hope this in-depth review will help you decide in favor of the product and make you give it a chance. It does not cause miraculous changes, but with continued use, it offers multiple benefits that work in your skin’s favor.
