Our Review Crew® couldn’t believe how soft their skin was with *this* “astonishing” duo

Are you ready to see your skin renewed?

August 28 2023

The product

Sensitive skin folk rejoice, Aveeno has created a skin-saving duo that not only sloughs away dead skin but also adds a hydrating (skin renewing) boost that can be felt almost instantly.

According to our Review Crew® members, the Aveeno Skin Renewal Scrub and the Aveeno Skin Renewal Smoothing Lotion are a lifesaving (well skin-saving at least) pair that have been designed to be used together to give you totally rejuvenated skin. 

Both products are made from oat formulations (colloidal and prebiotic respectively) which helps support your skin's barrier by soothing and adding hydration. The Aveeno Skin Renewal Scrub gently exfoliates with PHA’s (chemical exfoliants) while the Aveeno Skin Renewal Smoothing Lotion utilises gluconolactone (a gentle exfoliant) to support cell turnover, plus niacinamide that helps you say goodbye to rough and bumpy skin. 

Here’s what our panel of Review Crew® testers thought about the skin- softening scrub and lotion duo…

The panel

This renewing duo is the perfect pair for anyone that suffers from rough and bumpy skin. So BEAUTYcrew sent the Aveeno Skin Renewal Scrub and the Aveeno Skin Renewal Smoothing Lotion to a panel of women aged 25-54 with varying skin types.

The lowdown 

Here’s everything that our Review Crew® loved about the Aveeno Skin Renewal Scrub and Aveeno Skin Renewal Smoothing Lotion

The way they smoothed skin: Between the two products, our Review Crew® mentioned how much they LOVED the smoothing nature of these products over 70 times! If that’s not a glowing (skin) review we don’t know what is! Not only that but they also noticed how quickly said smoothing benefits take effect!

Their sensitive skin-friendly nature: If you’ve got sensitive skin you know the struggles of trying to exfoliate and moisturise without ending up irritated or inflamed. That’s precisely the opposite of what our testers experienced, as they were able to slough away dead skin without experiencing inflammation.

The hefty hydration the duo delivered: A hydrating lotion is about as ground-breaking as florals for spring. And YET, it’s a genuine dream come true when you get a really good hydrating product. Our reviewers found the combo of the products delivered renewed (and resurfaced) skin, hydrating and exfoliating all at once.

The verdict 

“I’m in love with this scrub! I’ve been using it on my legs which get so dry and scaly, and this removes all of the dead skin flakes off my legs. It also feels nice to use on my arms and on my back. It’s one of the best exfoliating scrubs I’ve ever used. I also love how it’s fragrance-free and it doesn’t irritate my skin whatsoever. This has truly become a lifesaver during the colder months where my skin is at its driest. I recommend people with dry, scaly or bumpy skin to give this product a try, because it’s well worth it.”

“First off I was hesitant as I’m coming off roaccutane and my skin is sensitive and dry. I’ve been struggling to find a way to exfoliate and keep my skin soft and smooth without irritating it. I am so happy I tried this! It doesn’t have any fragrance so no irritation there and it’s SO gentle. I was thinking it won’t do anything because it honestly didn’t feel like much when I was using it but after drying my skin and feeling [it] I was so pleased. It left my skin extremely soft and smooth and didn’t irritate in any way. I will forever continue to use this and recommend it. So in love!”

“The AVEENO Skin Renewal Smoothing Lotion is a quick absorbing and nourishing moisturiser. After daily use for about a month, I have noticed that my skin feels soft, supple and smooth from the gentle exfoliation of the product. The moisturiser isn't greasy, is fragrance free and absorbs into the skin in next to no time at all. My skin felt amazing after using it. This is a great daily moisturiser if you're after a lotion that helps exfoliate and improve your skin while hydrating it at the same time."

“What truly sets this lotion apart is its ability to effortlessly melt into the skin, leaving behind a sensation of velvety softness. I've struggled with dry patches, but the Skin Renewal Smoothing Lotion has quickly become my go-to solution. It absorbs quickly without any greasiness, and the results are astonishing. My skin feels instantly hydrated, and I've noticed a remarkable improvement in the texture and tone of my skin over time. Its ability to hydrate, improve skin texture, and leave behind a sense of comfort is truly commendable. If you're on the lookout for a lotion that not only takes care of your skin but also provides a pleasurable self-care ritual, I wholeheartedly recommend giving this product a try.”
