I had a trial version of this and instantly went and got the bigger one. Even though it was 20$ it was worth every penny. Its the greatest moisturizer ive used by far! Its thick and creamy, a little it goes a long way, its in a pump bottle which rocks, its got a nice scent to it and the sunbloc smell isnt overwhelming its very faint. Its also full of lots of antoxidents which are amazing for your skin and this one doesnt leave your skin feeling greasy or oily afterwards :) its also great for those who have a rough time in winter with their skin i love this product and will definitely buy it again!
Let me just start out by saying that I wasn't the type of person to moisturize everyday, or at all for that matter. I was always on the hunt for a good product that wouldn't leave my face feeling greasy. Sadly, no such luck :( UNTIL I found this moisturizer! I bought it after trying a small sample tube and loved it instantly. The texture is great, it doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy. I love the smell of it too! If you're not into scented products then you may not like this. What I enjoy the most is that it doesn't break me out. I have sensitive combination skin, and it does just fine :)
I returned this the day after I got it. The smell of sunblock was rancid, and It stung my face and my eyes!! I was in shock, because I always saw Aveeno as soothing and pure. This product disturbed me and has turned me off from other Aveeno items since.
I received a free sample that people were giving away at my school's campus bookstore during the first week of the semester. I really liked how you only needed a little to cover you entire face. I've been looking for years (no exaggeration there) for a nice thick facial moisturiser and I really like what Aveeno's done here. It's not greasy, nor does it make my face look or feel oily after some time, which for my ance-prone face is a plus for me. I tried my best to make the tiny sample bottle go as far as it could because here in Canada, the full size bottle retails from $15 to $20. As a university student, it hurts to pay for things at that price. I'm rationalizing it by telling myself that because a little goes a long way, it will last a while. Anywho hopefully this will become a staple in my daily regiment
After reading the reviews on makeupalley.com I held off on trying this moisturizer. However, I ran out of my Olay Complete SPF 15, and was in search of a daytime moisturizer that had an SPF 30 (many dermatologists are recommending this as a minimum!) It must have been the super cute packaging that swayed me from buying the Olay Complete SPF 30 as well as the antioxidants of A,C, & E listed. When I read the ingredients, pathenol, or B12, was there as well. Finally, another antioxidant, Southernwood extract, is suppose to provide moisture as well...Phew - quite an impressive list! Sounded promising and gave it try.
I must say I really like it a lot! I actually like the scent of this product - it's sweet. And the best part, no weird sunscreen smell that I could detect (masked by the fragrance!) It is much richer than the Olay Complete SPF 15 I had been using. It's thicker, creamier, and you only need a little bit to cover your face. It's perfect for the winter months for someone with normal/dry/sensitive skin. If your skin leans more towards combo/oily, it might be a bit too heavy.
This is my HG daytime moisturizer with SPF 30! Thanks Aveeno! continued >>
I really like this moisturizer. I don't think there's a lot of bells and whistles with it. It simply does what it's supposed to do, without feeling overtly greasy (due to the SPF). It smells nice and the packaging is kind of pretty.
As with a lot of moisturizers with SPF, I find that I have to use a foundation primer if I'm using a mineral foundation. Otherwise, I think this works great under tinted moisturizers and liquid foundations.
I was on the search for a daily moisturizer that had more than SPF15 and I was having a very hard time! This product was on one of CVS' big sales and I couldn't pass it up, 50% off! So I grabbed it. I am not disappointed.
The smell is kind of a mix of sweet candy fruit. I am not really sure how else to describe it.
I love love love the pump! I am queen of always pouring too much moisturizer out of those squeeze bottles, so this pump give me complete control.
The consistency is almost like a thick mouse but not as airy. I guess I don't really know how to describe this either. One the face it does feel a little heavier than I am used to, but It doesn't look heavy or oily. I have combination skin and this did not break me out.
I use this on days that I either need more moister or more sun protection.
As others have said, it is amazing for traveling!! I love it, I don't have to worry about it oozing out or anything. :)
I am not sure if I would pay full price, it would depend if I found another one with the same SPF for less...I am wishing that I grabbed a bunch more for 50% off :( oh well...
I was repacking my travel bag and noticed that I was almost out of this, I will be picking up another bottle and after reading all of these posts, I wanted add my two cents.
This product is think and it does feel heavy - HOWEVER - IF you are a frequent traveler AND IF lack of sleep, pressurized, dry, recycled air plane air and constantly changing water quality dry out your skin, this is a godsend! My face gets very dry on my cheeks and forehead, so much so that my skin will peel. That's not a good look.
I appreciate that this is thick and a little heavy, it has never broken me out and it absorbs right away. I can see where this might be heavy for some in the summer, apply too much and it will just sit there. try half a pump instead of the whole thing, also, apply right after shower or washing your face. Another reviewer said this is excellent for winter, she is 100% spot on.
Traveling...this container is 2.5 ounces, so even the most nasty TSA agent will have nothing to say. It is a sealed pump, so you get the exact amount you want and the rest of the product will stay fresh. In addition, there is no contamination, as your fingers never touch the product. The cap on the bottle is nice and tight, I don't need to worry about it opening in my bag and squirting out all over the place. SPF 30 is amazing, I don't ever bother with another sunscreen.
This is a great drug store brand, do I love my $100 Shisedo better? Yes! But this is a good product that does exactly what it says and it is dirt cheap!
I purchased this for summer use, as my workouts consist of
jogging/power walking on a woodland trail...
BUT the summer humidity made this a zit trap.
Shelved it for the summer.
BUT now that cool weather has arrived, this works...
it is moisturizing enough that my combination/sensitive skin
is kept moist,
and the sunscreen is worth it.
So.. buy it again? Not for summer, but for the rest of the year.
Ugh this stuff is a greasy sunscreen... It was far from attractive. I have to sop up the face grease 15 minutes after applying this and then again at 1 hour intervals.
It smells like sunscreen, feels like sunscreen, and even looks like it. If it quacks like a duck... Well. It's a duck.
And that's all it is. Overpriced sunscreen. It breaks me out as well. Its going right back where it came from after a one week trial.
