Reviews for Positively Radiant Daily Cleansing Pads by Aveeno Active Naturals

Love these cleaning pads. Very handy for quick make up removal. Love the exfoliant side to really clean my skin. Only thing is I think the container is to bulky. Would like it to be smaller so it can be taken alway on holidays.

I used to use these religiously a little while ago. For me i find that they are perfect for everyday use. The exfoliation side is really good at removing gunk and make up and it really makes my skin feel soft. The other side is much more gentle but still gives a thorough cleanse. I found that my skin improved after using up the whole tub.

Not suitable for everyone
This product is not the quickest method for taking off makeup. It can make the makeup run down your face/hands/sink which can get quite messy. I am reluctant to use this product when I do have a full face of makeup to take off, but for the days when I only need to remove minimal foundation or powder this product suffices. I do like that it has a cleansing side and an exfoliating side.
It is also quite pricey, but if you enjoy washing your face to remove your makeup, this may be a great alternative product to try for you.

Not a quick step to cleansing
I thought this product would provide a faster alternative to traditional cleansing, however, it requires the same amount of time and effort. Its not like a cleansing wipe. You need to damp your skin and apply the pad.
It did clean quite well, however, I didn't like the idea of wiping impurities all over my place (hence why i like using cleansers instead, because I feel more clean that way). One side is for exfoliating and even though it is quite gentle, I wouldn't use it everyday because it is more recommended to scrub everyday. Therefore, i found that half the pad is wasted. It smells like all the other Aveeno products which is great.
Wouldn't repurchase it again.

Brilliant 3 in 1 product
What a great idea! I love these, I've never been a fan of cleansing wipes but these are great. The pads themselves are quite thick and large, so often I cut them in half as I don't need the whole thing. They're super moisturising, the tub says they're 'pre-moistened', but they're not moist, not even damp.. they're absolutely soaked, which makes them almost like a cleansing wipe and liquid cleanser in one. I love using them, they do a great job of removing make up and the different textured sides mean you get exfoliation as well. So, it's a 3 in 1, wipe, cleanser and exfoliator! Brilliant.
Only reason why I'm taking off 1 star is that I haven't seen any improvements in skin tone or brightening despite the soy extracts. Also, the tub is unnecessarily huge, which is not only a waste of plastic but makes it awkward for travelling and storage.

great easy to use product
I was using these bumpy cleansing pads for a very long time until I found that Aveeno had the same cleansing formula but in a bottle. These pads are great for taking on holidays because they're just so quick & easy to use & also great at removing makeup or sea salt from swimming at the beach. I found that I barely had to use a manual exfoliant during the week because these pads not only cleanse but exfoliate too. They're covered in bumps on one side & the other is smooth & is about 30 or so in a tub. They smell great & I always have a tub sitting on the shower floor incase I run out of cleansing lotion.

I use this once a week ...It clears me up and smooths my skin. My skin feels extra smooth its a little weekly treat for my Face. I would definitely recommend it. I use the rough side first and gently calm my skin with the smooth side. I have two left and will buy some more

Great for quick pore cleanse
I like these as they are kind of two-in-one, but they may be a little harsh for sensitive skin. I tend to use these more when I'm feeling lazy! Useful if you feel some rough parts on your face, or need to quickly remove some makeup. Make sure to moisturise after use.

Good for on the go
Clever concept, but I don't think it did much different to a regular cleanser and exfoliator. For those who need it, its a great 2 in 1, but I wouldn;t use this over a long term.

great exfoliating cleanser for sensitive skin
fabulous to use after work to remove all of the days make-up and grim, or even after a day out in the yard, or bush.
At least once a week for a good exfoliation and deep cleanse of the skin

stung my eyes
I was having a relaxing bath the other day and i used these pads to cleanse my face and i was surprised of how much product they give off, once dabbed with a little water, the foam just kept coming! I then continued to use these on my eyes..not recommended! they stung and irritated my eyes. Another thing to add is that the container itself i very large, and is something i keep in the bottom cupboard as that's the only place it fits, just something to keep in mind.

Cleanses skin really nicely.
My skin felt really fresh and tingly after using these cleansing pads, recommended :)

easy breezy aveeno :)
The large pads provide me with deep cleaning but also gently effective cleansing of any make up and yucky build up of the day! The pads smell great but not over powering and my sensitive skin definite agrees! I love how over time ( 2 - 3 weeks) my face has brightened in complexion whilst being visibly smoother and pores refined!

Love love love!
I absolutely love these! They leave my skin feeling and looking AMAZING!!
I did purchase them thinking they would be an easy option (like a face wipe) but you do have to wet your face and rinse so it's no easier than using a cleanser. It's worth the effort though. I use these at night after using a face wipe and my skin feels so great when I get into bed

Disappointing given the quality of Aveeno products
I liked the idea of the Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Cleaning Pads, thinking they would be suitable for a lazy cleansing routine but I found that they irritated my skin quite a bit. The gritty feeling before rinsing was very unpleasant. These cleansing pads also left my skin feeling very dry. This product was a bit of a disappointment, as I am a fan of other Aveeno skincare products.

Beautiful, radiant skin!!
I am absolutely loving these facial cleansing pads. When I originally purchased them I thought they were the wipe and go variety like Nivea's Refreshing Wipes so I was surprised to open the container and find a lotion saturated cleansing pad which when applied to the face created a rich, fragrant lather. It deeply cleanses pores and removed all traces of dirt and makeup in a flash (even longwearing)...one side of the pad is smooth and the other is textured to help exfoliate the skin. As I have sensitive skin I preferred the smooth side as the other was a tad abrasive for me but would be perfect for normal skin types. I'll definitely repurchase this product.

Excellent product for sensitive skin or cleansing on the go!
After using Aveeno's amazing range of body washes and moisturisers I was intrigued by this product and had to give it a test drive! First of all, the container is HUGE and is definitely not something you'd want to take on a weekend away/for travel but despite this, it does keep the cleansing pads very moist, hygenic and ready for use. I initially thought the pads were used without rising (like Nivea's cleansing wipes) but they are actually more like a deep cleansing treatment and can be used to gently whisk away all traces of makeup/oil/dirt with the smoother side and then exfoliate with the rougher reverse side. The pads are self foaming and create a rich, creamy layer of cleanser which simply rinses off at the basin or in the shower. Although I think this product is fantastic the rough side was a bit harsh for my sensitive skin and given you need to rinse it off thoroughly it's probably more cost effective to use a normal bottled cleanser. Will definitely repurchase.

Similar concept to Neutrogena's wave cleanser but
Hey girls i recently bought this the other day to try, i have been dying to try this product seeming as i have changed my daily body moisturizer to aveeno and i love it. Been using it for about a week now and i do like it! The pads that they provide are fairly big which i like. One side of the pad is smooth and the other side is a little bit textured to help exfoliate all the dead skin cells. I like the concept that you can wash your face and also exfoliate with the textured side. The pads smelt great and i love that clean feeling you get once you rinse the product away from your skin. However, the only thing that i am not happy about is that it does tend to leave your skin fairly dry after you use the product. I have been using products that does not strip away all my moisture from my skin (eg Neutrogena deep cream cleanser, dove body soaps). Besides that fact i still like the product as i put my daily cream on after washing it anyways and will continue to use it as i like the multiple effects of the product.
