I love Aveda products, and this one is no exception. It's not something I use year round or all the time, but during the two extremes of the year -- the dead of winter and the dead of summer. When it's 10 below and the wind chill factor is high, my face (cheeks mostly) get wind burned or so cold they get red. The same thing in the hottest part of the summer and I've been outside with or without sunscreen. This is so cooling and not only gets rid of that redness but feels so soothing, too. My daughter and I suffer from slight keratosis, little white bumps that show up on the backs of our arms, and exfoliating and moisturizing has been the best treatment for it so far. However, sometimes my daughter's arms get so bad that it looks irritated, especially in the driest part of winter. This Aveda Outer Peace alleviates that wonderfully. I almost always have a tube of this on hand somewhere in the house, year round.
