    Quick Summary

    If you’re looking for good, inexpensive, daily exfoliator, Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Scrub could be the one for you!  I really enjoyed using this, so I gave it a 3.5 out of 5 stars.

    This scrub is a great staple in any skincare routine.  It does a great job of gently refreshing your skin.

    The application of this product is extremely simple and the price is difficult to beat!

    The one drawback of this exfoliator is that it uses microbeads, which are said to be harmful to the environment.

    Detailed Review:


    Aveeno’s Positively Radiant Daily Scrub is a milky-colored scrub with a very smooth, gel-like texture.  This exfoliator contains extremely tiny microbeads in it, which you can feel as you begin to apply the product.


    This Aveeno scrub smells very fresh. Although the smell is very faint, I really enjoyed it.

    Application Process

    It’s recommended to be used daily.  To use this product; moisten face, gently massage over face using circular motions, and rinse thoroughly.

    The application of this exfoliator is extremely simple, which I enjoyed!  You didn’t have to leave it on for long, and wait around, which can be a pain.  I also liked how easy it was to rinse off.

    Any Drying and/or Redness?

    The main exfoliant in Aveeno Positively Radiant is very tiny microbeads (probably the smallest I have seen).  Because the microbeads are so small and gentle, I didn’t experience any drying or redness while using this product.

    Although this exfoliator is extremely gentle, if you do experience drying or irritation, the directions advise you to use less frequently.


    As far as daily exfoliators go, I was very happy with the results I saw from using this.

    After use, my skin felt exceedingly soft and smooth.

    Because this product is a daily exfoliator, it’s super gentle. Therefore, it doesn’t provide the same level of deep exfoliation that you may receive from other, harsher exfoliators.

    With that being said, Aveeno Positively Radiant does a great job at removing most areas of dry skin leaving your face feeling very refreshed and replenished.


    The one thing about this exfoliator I wasn’t too fond of was the ingredients.

    Aveeno uses microbeads as the main ingredient in this scrub, which although they’re tiny, they’re still not great for the environment.

    In addition, this scrub also contains fragrance, which can be very irritating to those with sensitive skin.

    Another main ingredient in this exfoliator is soy extract.

    This is a common ingredient in the cosmetic industry because it has been known to have anti-aging properties when consumed.

    However, there’s not much evidence of soy having these same anti- aging affects when it’s applied topically.


    Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Scrub costs $6.99 for 5 oz.  This ends up being $1.40 an oz.  This price is tough to beat!
