Jennifer Aniston has already shown her love for hair care through her partnership with brand Living Proof, and now the actress is moving further into the beauty biz. "We can confirm that Jennifer Aniston will be partnering with Aveeno for skin care," the actress's rep, Stephen Huvane, told E! News. "You can expect to see the results of this collaboration later this year." This announcement comes some time after rumors of the deal leaked last Summer. She also previously dabbled in hair color with L'Oréal and fragrance. But this Aveeno deal proves that from her enviable hair to her glowing skin, Jennifer Aniston takes her beauty seriously.
Are you itchy, baby? Eczema is an inflammation of the skin, characterized by redness and itching, and about one in five babies is diagnosed with the skin condition before their first birthday. Now that Fall is officially here, lower temperatures and indoor heating can dry baby's skin — causing eczema flare-ups — and mama will try just about anything to make it feel better. Check out these five tried-and-true products to help give your munchkin some much-needed relief!
- Babyganics Bye Bye Dry Eczema Lotion ($7): Au naturel! Bye Bye Dry is a natural, nontoxic solution that provides relief from baby eczema. It's safe and gentle on your little one's skin and soothes baby's eczema itch.
- Baby Naturals Baby Eczema Cream ($6): It's super rich! This rich moisturizer specially formulated for babies with eczema nurtures baby's dry skin, soothing it from redness and itching.
- Excederm Soothing Baby Oil ($12): Oil up! The key to eczema control is moisture — and nothing delivers maximum moisture for dry, delicate skin than baby oil. It's nonirritating formula makes it ideal for children of all ages.
- Cetaphil Restoraderm Body Moisturizer ($15): Moisture for all! This doctor-recommended lotion — for anyone 3 months of age or older — repairs and protects the skin’s natural moisture barrier. It's also free of fragrances, parabens, and nut oils.
- ($4): Bath time! This soothing treatment is made with colloidal oatmeal — proven to relieve irritated skin — and a special moisturizer that forms a soothing milky bath for baby.
Dry skin is always a big problem this time of year, and it makes us appreciate body moisturizers even more. This year, of the brands out there, Aveeno's gentle oat-based formulas had the most real estate in our readers' hearts and bathrooms.
As far as drugstore options go, we totally agree (the creamy moisturizing oil is amazing). At a higher price point, we really love Lavanila body butter ($25). It's free of the questionable chemicals common in a lot of cosmetics, smells great, and has the perfect texture.
If you live in Seattle, Minneapolis, or Boston, here's some good news: you can get a free hair wash and blow-out on May 27 (that's next Wednesday, folks) thanks to Aveeno. To launch its new line of hair care, the brand is offering the service (on a first-come, first-served basis) to women in those cities. You can get free pedi-cab service to and from the salons, along with samples of the Nourish+ haircare line. Not in those cities? Score a free sample online.

I don't know about you, but I don't like my moisturizers to be overly scented. And that's one of the reasons why reader Stef42678 thinks Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion with SPF 15 ($10) is a great moisturizer. Take it away, Stef:
I really love using this moisturizer when I have dry and cracked skin because it is instant relief. It has a light smell and really makes my skin feel soft and hydrated. I like that it is made with natural ingredients and doesn't feel heavy or greasy.

Looking for a reusable bag that's easy on the eyes? Aveeno's Envirosax bag is not only eco-friendly, but it could be yours — for free. Student Jeff Tsui's contest-winning print, "Jubilance," is an earthy purple and green pattern atop an organic cotton bag.
For a chance to sport this limited-edition bag on your shoulder, head over to Aveeno's Jubilance site at 12:00 p.m. Eastern time on Wednesday, which is Earth Day. The first 1,000 people who log on at that time will score an Envirosax and an Aveeno hair care sample. Even better, for each bag given away, Aveeno will donate $10 to Global Green USA, an organization that supports the fight against global climate change. Now, that's something we can all stand behind.
If you have sensitive skin, finding the right products can take some time and lots of trial and error. Recently, reader Finn discovered Aveeno's soap-free Positively Radiant Cleanser and had glowing results. Check out her review:
"The moment this cleanser touched my skin, I knew I was on to something special. My skin is extremely sensitive to products and this felt soothing and cleansing at the same time. Not only did it remove the dirt and oil from the day, it seemed to keep my skin clean for the next eight hours. I don't know how they did it, but I will definitely be using Aveeno instead of my $55 cleanser from the department store!"

While there are plenty of great skin care options available for gals with sensitive skin, what about the occasional and pesky flare-up of redness that all skin types can relate to, such as the kind that occurs from an unexpected pimple, or a nose rubbed raw from a winter cold? In the past I've resorted to applying everything from Neosporin to thick, goopy hand cream on my poor nose, or even Visine on a pimple. Neither really worked.
Fortunately, I've discovered a much better and effective option in Therapy Systems' Emergency Treatment Cream ($32). This light and fluffy pink concoction is formulated with hydrocortisone to immediately zap redness and calm inflammation. Just dab a little on the emergency stricken areas, and it soothes your skin while eliminating the redness. Crisis averted!
