Aveeno is an American Skin Care brand under Johnson & Johnson. They were founded in 1945 and have since been one of the most affordable skin care producers for sensitive skin. Their products are known for using “Active Naturals” ingredients. All ingredients are sourced from nature and made to be both effective and safe for the skin. The active ingredient for most of their products is colloidal oats and/or oat extracts. These ingredients are known to have anti-inflammatory, anti-itch and anti-oxidant properties.
The Aveeno product line includes many products specifically for eczema, psoriasis and sunburns (and of course all are great for sensitive skin!). Their products range from face wash/moisturizer to body washes and hair products. They also have a line of baby skin care and body wash products. In my experience they products are very reliable in that they don’t hurt sensitive skin. For normal skin they may not be as effective as other products but the fact that they are reliable is a huge plus for me. Aveeno products are also very affordable and most fall in the $6~20 range.

Where to Buy Aveeno Products
You can find Aveeno products in most major daily goods stores like Target or Walmart all for affordable prices. I tend to buy my Aveeno products from Target because they often have sales or promotions with free gift cards.
Another option is through Amazon. Amazon is a good choice if you don’t like to go out shopping but their products tend to be a little more expensive. To beat this, I recommend ordering their products with the monthly subscription plans. If you add 5 items to the subscription you can get 15% off (at least that’s the price of tax!).
