Doing Drugstore: Aveeno Positively Ageless Warming Scrub

I had one severe case of dry, peeling skin, and I had it bad. My chin and mouth area were flakier than both Heidi and Spencer Pratt combined. I needed one mighty fine exfoliator, and I needed it stat. I turned to Aveeno's Warming Scrub ($9) from the brand's Positively Ageless line. Thermal beauty products are nothing new, but I'm still fascinated by the sensation of warmed-up skin care, which to me — whether it really does anything or not — enhances the experience. To find out what I thought about this water-activated, self-heating scrub, just keep reading.

To me, along with the smell, the bead consistency is the most important part of a facial exfoliator. I particularly liked the size and feel of the tiny sand-like exfoliators contained within this cream-based product. They're not wimpy and barely there, but not large, chunky, abrasive, tear-into-your-skin kind of sloughing agents, either. Made with shiitake mushrooms, an ingredient known for its antiaging benefits, the cleanser/scrub definitely gave a boost to my lackluster skin, leaving my face feeling very clean and refreshed, but without leaving behind that overly tight sensation. I wouldn't use it every day, as it might be a bit too aggressive or heavy for all-the-time usage. But I, along with my chinny chin chin, give this thermal facial scrub a glowing recommendation.
