10 Nontoxic Skin Care Ingredients That Beauty Experts Swear By

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.

Sounds great! I need a new scrub, my skin is drier in the cold weather. Plus my woodstove zaps all moisture from the air. Everything is drier.

Hmmmm, as much as I like Aveeno, I think I'm going to refrain from this product. My skin looks best when I do minimal maintenance on it. It's so sensitive.

I wonder how this compares to the Olay Regenerist one? I like the Olay one although it doesn't exfoliate too much. I'm almost out of it and may just try the Aveeno one now (it's half the price of the Olay one!)

This stuff is skin magic - just the right amount of abrasion, doesn't over heat your skin, perfect amount of 'grease' (read: moisture) and it smells great. I actually use it every day, just gently. Thanks Aveeno!

I just bought this! I like the way it leaves my skin, but I'm scared that I'll break out because it feels a little greasy, no? It hasn't freaked out my skin, so I should probably stop worrying. So far, I really like it.
