Advil® PM

I received free samples of Advil® PM through Crowdtap. The following review is 100% honest.

ad1 I love Advil products, but I purposefully haven’t tried the Advil® PM version. I don’t need a sleep aid or if I do, I use melatonin. Advil PM contains the sleep aid diphenhydramine citrate, which as you see from WebMD is a very common antihistamine. It’s basically Benadryl with ibuprofen. I love ibuprofen and, therefore regular Advil, especially with the quick dissolving coating, but these sleep aids were not for me.

I tried only one capsule and it helped me to fall asleep just fine. However, I didn’t wake up pleasantly. I was groggy. I was without pain, but mildly irritable. It helped as my antihistamine for the day; however, my usual coffee couldn’t even perk me up. I won’t be taking one of these on a weeknight again unless I can sleep in. I’ll stick with my 1 mg melatonin and Advil®.

RoC® MULTI CORREXION®

I received samples of RoC® MULTI CORREXION® products free through Crowdtap. I am providing my honest and own review.

RoC® MULTI CORREXION® 5-in-1 Restoring Night Cream literally makes my skin perk up! I never believed in Retinol until I tried a quality version. It’s the best night cream I’ve ever used! Ha, I say it’s like putting tiny diamonds in my skin at night. It makes me glow and gave me confidence in my dull areas. I would highly recommend if you’re worried about fine lines and wrinkles, it’s lifted my neck area dramatically even though I’m young. I was noticing signs, but RoC took my worries away!

I never had a retinol routine, and RoC® MULTI CORREXION® changed my whole perception of trying one. It’s a very positive thing for me. RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® Eye Cream just replaced ALL of my eye products aside from eyeshadow and mascara. It’s brighten my lids so I use it every single morning and some evenings! Hoping I will love the effects over the long-term. 

RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® Eye Cream brightened my eyes, lids and bottoms so I looked youthful again! It’s completely changed the way I use eye products and showed me I don’t need to be nervous that I’m too young for something like this. It makes my eyes feel rejuvenated from the outside and I really feel like I’m helping and making a difference. I would recommend to anyone trying to reduce crow’s feel, brighten lids, and feel like looking younger!

A week later!

My favorite RoC sample was the MULTI CORREXION® 5-in-1 Restoring Night Cream. It brightened my fading skin and started to work on my tiny worry lines developing. I felt younger and more confident after using it for just 3 days. A week was looking at myself at 22! I love it and will definitely be keeping it handy! #WomenWhoRoC 

Aveeno® Ultra-Calming®

This post was sponsored by AVEENO® as part of a sampling activation for Crowdtap. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review. I received both the Nourishing Night Cream and the Makeup Removing Wipes.

My face is brighter & more hydrated in the morning!

The Aveeno Ultra-Calming Nourishing Night Cream was a complete dream! I haven’t had the best experience with Aveeno in the past and was nervous for this sample, but hey! They sent this for me to try and review. First, it’s wonderfully thick, I love a great consistency in my night creams so it feels like a restorative mask. It doesn’t have a scent to me or it’s very faint because it’s “gentle scent,” it smells like oats. I’m not a huge fan of that, but I get the concept is to make this for all skin types.The Feverfew formula has captivated me and made me believe in the product.

It absolutely does what it says, I swear anything I had that irritated my skin in the day and produced redness is immediately soothed with this cream. It brightens my skin and evens my tone to my best shade. I didn’t realize it had tone-correcting, but the ability to sooth is like a built-in tone booster! I’ve been using for a week, it hasn’t caused any problems. It has actually helped my skin rejuvenate, hydrate, and stay moisturized (almost too much). Who am I kidding? Moisturizer is the best for this time and being over-moisturized is never a problem! This would be a perfect gift for anyone and it’s great if you want to start your skin regimen over. It’s helped to clear out my skin and make sure it’s pampered for whatever I do to my face! I love it and will continue to use it as a tried-and-true formula.

I wasn’t as thrilled with the Aveeno Ultra-Calming Makeup Removal Wipes. These have a distinct scent, which isn’t unpleasant, but it’s piercing. These are somewhat slimy, I’m guessing from the oil to make it easier to remove make up; however, I didn’t find that they removed the makeup as well as I would have hoped. I still had to wash off my eye make up and my skin because I didn’t like the residue feeling it left.

I thought I would take these in my travel bag, but I would prefer to wash my face over using these wipes, if possible. I don’t feel as though it would be comfortable on my eyes after a while because as I tried to remove makeup from my eyes, it was difficult so I applied more pressure which cause irritation to my eyes.

av7 It takes off the makeup well, but I still feel as though my pores were needing a more thorough cleaning. The moisturizer in these didn’t seem bad, it seemed to overpower everything else. I’m okay with a harsher make up removal agents, so I figured these wipes aren’t for me. These are for people who wear lighter makeup like only BB creams and no powders.

Overall, I think this line is amazing as I’ve said before. It’s superb for those with tough skin issues. I’m going to investigate their eczema line because I feel it might genuinely help my newly-found skin problem. I would suggest the night cream for everyone and the makeup wipes for those who want wipes and can’t find a wipe that’s gentle enough for them.
