Aveeno Positively Radiant Targeted Tone Corrector Review.....

Hi everyone!

Today I'm reviewing a product I received from Influenster.  Thank you Influenster for the opportunity to try the Aveeno Tone Corrector in exchange for my honest review!



I used the Aveeno Tone Corrector for a full three weeks to make sure I had adequate time to form my opinion of the product.  I have dry skin and while I'm not overly concerned with dark spots yet, I do have an uneven skin tone especially around my chin area.  Sadly, while the Targeted Tone Corrector claimed to help with an uneven skin tone and reveal softer, smoother skin, I did not see any change.  And during the three week period that I was using it morning and night, I developed some breakouts on my chin.  I'm not normally acne prone so I can only assume it was from the Corrector.  Nobody wants that!

On the positive side, the Aveeno Targeted Tone Corrector smelled really good and did leave my skin feeling soft and moisturized which is a plus for this dry skin girl!

Overall, I don't think I will recommend it to my friends or family, but I still appreciate getting to try it!


I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. #RadiantWithAVEENO

Gratitude....

I sit here this morning thinking about many things.  It's been a while since I've updated Kaufman's Cottage mostly because I'm not sure of what to post.  From the very beginning I've felt strongly about being an encourager of homemakers.  We have a VERY important job to do!  I pray that if you are feeling discouraged about your role in the home that God will lead you to my post.  Don't think for a minute that it's just a coincidence...that's how He works sometimes!

I wanted to do a year end review for 2013.  Better late than never right?  I wholeheartedly believe this:


Are you struggling with discontentment?  Don't feel alone!  From time to time we all do.  I've found the best way to combat that is to simply look for things to be thankful for.  A home?  Someone to love?  Food to eat?  Clothes to wear?  A book to read?  A God to worship?  If you look hard enough, I guarantee you can find something to be thankful for and that my friends is victory over discontentment! 

2013 was a tough year with deaths in the family, broken relationships, unfair expectations and a whole lot more but I've got SO much to be thankful for!  If you are reading this, then you are a part of that as well.  So thank you!  Here are some random highlight's from 2013...
