Wost facial product I have ever used. I saw some reviews on this, and I thought Aveeno was for people with sensitive skin. I used it for a week and it was making my skin worse. I have normal to dry skin and it was making my dry skin dryer and my normal skin dry. At first I didn't realize what it was, so I applied more during the day. After about a week I realized something was wrong here. When I looked super super close to my skin in a specific light, there was a rash on my skin. I have never had this problem with any other facial product. If you have sensitive skin and think Aveeno with help, you might want to think again. I don't recommend this and won't repurchase.
Was wondering why on earth my eyes were getting burning and red and then figured out after going on holidays for two weeks and I didn't take this product with me, my eyes cleared up perfectly. Started using this again when i got back and almost immediately my eyes started burning and red again....and i don't ever put this stuff anywhere near my eyes! the closest it gets to my eyes is on my cheeks and nose it's nearly like the fumes from the product irritate my eyes.
It also doesn't hydrate much at all, won't buy again
I think it actually does what it says- i have had a lot of acne scars from over the years and most have them blend into my skin now and I think this is the cause of that. It's VERY shimery which i don't mind because it looks great on my cheekbones, and then i just put a matte cream on my t-zone. Even though i have combo/oily skin, this works well on my skin, and I do get REALLY dry sometimes and this is the only thing that hydrates my skin. I bought this about 10 months ago and I've still got about 1/3 left.
A little expensive for a drugstore product, but it works well. It is a great option for those who want a little sunscreen coverage but don't want to deal with slathering on a thicker sunblock every day. It provides a hint of illumination (good if you have good skin, but bad if you have skin issues like large pores, oil, and acne). It also absorbs really quickly and isn't greasy -- it's perfect for normal skin.
It made my skin look better after a week or so of use but it did make my skin look oily after several hours... but its makes my skin look so much better so ill deal with the oil and use something to control the oil. Over all i will definately keep using this product... oh and its lasted me for a long time too ive had it over four months now and i still got like half a bottle left and it only takes half a pump to do my hole face
I have mixed reviews about this product.
When I first tried it out I noticed that it gives a certain glow. Some people may like it(like me) some people may not. I really like the effect that it gives my skin. The moisturizing quality is okay, I give it a 6/10. It is better than my previous moisturizer. When you put it on it feels a little bit greasy but it goes away after a minute or two.
I also tried mixing it with my liquid foundation and it gives me that really dewy look that I like.
The one thing that I do not like about this product is that it made me break out and it didn't give me the same glow after weeks of use.
I really like this product. The good things outweigh the bad. It makes my skin soft and even helps my acne, breakouts, and sensitive spots on my face. However, I put it on before my foundation and it seemed like it took FOREVER for it to dry enough that I could put on the makeup without it blending right in with the makeup. It was a little pricey for the product, so I am trying out a different brand (with same ingredients and everything). I'm not liking it as much as the Aveeno, so I will be purchasing this product again.
Ive been using this for about 5 monthes now, throught the cold season (and by cold a mean, atlantic canada winter cold). which is when my skin NEEDS a moisterizer. This did ok at the beginning of the fall when my skin wasnt really dry but when i noticed it becoming flaky i added a bit of cetaphil moisterizer too it which worked well. On its own however its a good LIGHT moisterizer for the warmer weather. in the winter you might need a bit more of a heavyer moisterizer. people with oily skin beware as it does have a 'shimmer' to it and can illuminate large pores. my upstairs neighbor acctually bought this for me after mentioning to her that her skin looked good and asking her what she used (she mentioned this product) this is the first moisterizer ive stuck with for such a long time (usually i chuck em after disliking them but i liked this one enough to keep it around). it didnt do anything to 'even my skin tone' but was a very handy light moisterizer for fall/spring weather. now that the weathers warming up im going to try the avveno calming lotion as my skin does have some redness and i dont want to go into summer with 'shimmer' and i like a matte look.Edit-IT SUCKS... However through using this product i will stay with the aveeno moisterizers line assuming the rest work as well as this one did. a good light moisterizer that didnt break me out.
Edit- after straying from this product I went back to it and I hate it. I don't know why I ever liked it so much. The shimmer makes you look greasy. It does not moisterizer well and after using it straight for 3 years my face doesn't look anymore radient nor has the texture or darkspots went away. PLUS it's pretty expensive for a drugstore product. The only bonus is that you get enough in a bottle to last you 3 months or so. I ended up throwing a brandnew bottle of this into the garbage because it sucked so much.
I actually sort of like the fact that this moisturizer has a bit of a shimmer to it. I was using mark's See Things Clearly Brightening Moisturizer before, which also had the sparkles in it, but I was finding it too much of a hassle having to track down an Avon representative and re-ordering it every time I ran out. So I found this at Shoppers instead, and have found it a fair replacement. At first (with the mark's moisturizer), I remember feeling a little let-down and thinking that it was almost like cheating to advertise a product as being able to brighten your complexion, only to find that they had more or less just thrown glitter in it. But the more I used it, the more I learned to love it, and was therefore thrilled to find another moisturizer with the same sparkles in it. It does make my skin look bright, clean, and fresh, and I love that it contains SPF. I did read in someone else's review, though, that this moisturizer contains peanut ingredients, and yet there are no warnings on it (which is extremely risky and careless, as I know from friends and family who have peanut allergies how serious that can be), which made me seriously consider throwing it out and never buying it again, but I have yet to find something that I like as much and that makes my face look so good. Especially without makeup. Will definitely continue buying. At least until I find something better.
I love this... I got it in a swap, and I'm very happy about it!
It was thicker than I expected, which is a good thing. I love the pump package...I love Ponds, but hate the tub, so I think that this is my replacement!! There is a slight shimmer, I was trying to figure out where it was coming from, thinking that it was maybe from shadow somewhere because I dont see it on my face.
I have dry skin right now, and this is doing the trick!
