Must Have Beauty: Aveeno Positively Nourishing Calming Body Wash


Hi. My name is Lisa and I am an Aveeno addict.

If you didn’t catch on to that this summer when I reviewed a few different products, or last year when I declared Aveeno Positiely Radiant Moisturizer the best moisturizer ever, then I’m back to remind you.

Being the Aveeno junkie that I am, I was excited a few years ago when they introduced the Aveeno Active Naturals line of products. Aveeno Active Naturals products are formulated with items like soy, oat, wheat, and seaweed that will deliver clear and noticeable benefits to your hair and skin. While I’m pretty sure I’ve tried every Aveeno product under the sun, the only product I’ve stuck with from this particular line is the Aveeno Positively Nourishing Calming Body Wash. I’ve found that many of the Aveeno Active Naturals products have a scent, which I generally don’t like when it comes to lotion and whatnot, but which I love in a body wash!

Reasons I think Aveeno Positively Nourishing Calming Body Wash is a must have beauty product include:

  • It is really gentle on your skin. Really. I have ultra sensitive skin and some body washes just don’t work for me. Within an hour I’ll be itchy everywhere – gross. This body wash is gentle, even with the most sensitive of skin.
  • It smells good. I’m not a particularly calm person so I don’t know that this body wash has the desired effect of being “calming,” at least for me, but I do know that I enjoy the scent and it makes me enjoy shower time just a smidgen more.
  • You get a whole lot of body wash for the price. A 16 oz. bottle normally costs $6.99, though I frequently find it on sale at my local drugstore. A little bit of body wash goes a long way, so I normally find that I can get about 3 months of use out of one bottle!

Body wash is everywhere, and in the grand scheme of things it’s probably a bit bold to describe this particular body wash as a “Must Have Beauty” product, but all I know is that when I use this product my skin feels more nourished than it does with most other body washes and I feel like I’m doing everything I can to preserve my skin and keep it young and healthy.

Continuing their partnership with Aveeno, Beauty Box 5 boxes in November will feature Aveeno Positively Nourishing Calming Body Wash, so you can try this product out if you haven’t before! Beauty Box 5 is a monthly beauty sample box and a subscription costs just $12. Each month they send out five deluxe beauty samples, although each month one of those “samples” is usually a full-size product. They have sent out some great boxes recently! (Check out my October review and September review.)

Have you tried Aveeno Positively Nourishing Calming Body Wash? Do you love it as much as I do?
