I swear I used to use this in high school. I think my skin's gotten more sensitive since then though. I bought this last night and used it this morning...and took it back the same day. It stung and my cheeks, where it stung the most, got a big red. I'm starting to get the feeling my skin has decided in the last year or so it can't tolerate chemical sunscreens. Prior, I had been using Cerave Lotion (the pump kind) but am nervous since it has no sunscreen. So I bought this. I'll give them some credit, the pump bottle is nice.
This has fragrance in it - another thing my skin hates now. I don't understand how they can put that in and market it as "good for sensitive skin". Fragrances are a big no-no for truly sensitive skin.
So I returned this and bought CeraVe's AM (I use the PM in the summer as my nightime moisturizer and love it). It has Zinc as one of the sunscreens so hopefully it works better for me.
Let me start off by saying I didn't realize this was for sensitive skin-- I'm pretty sure I could use car soap as a cleanser and it wouldn't even affect it. I was more interested in the redness aspect of the product, because while my skin is a tough little bugger, hyperpigmentation and hormonal redness is a big problem for me. So, naturally, I had absolutely no luck with the redness.
While it didn't do what I bought it for, it still is a very good moisturizer. It isn't greasy on application, and doesn't get oily as the day goes on. It smells nice and feels nice and looks nice and works nice, but it didn't remotely improve my breed of redness.
I'm almost out of my bottle and have been using it for the past few months, but will not repurchase. I am, however, looking forward to buying aveeno's positively radiant moisturizer though. :]
I really love this moisturizer. It feels incredibly smooth while applying, and keeps my skin moist without shine all day. It has never caused me to break out, and my skin glows when I wear it. I even wear it to bed, I love it so much.
I understand that different things work for different people; I think this works so well for me because I have combo/dry acne prone very fair skin. If you skin is anything like that, I'm sure this product would be wonderful for you.
I've been using this as my morning moisturizer for years now. I love that it has SPF 15, the smell is very subtle and it doesn't make my skin break out! I have normal skin (doesn't get dry or oily) and it was the perfect amount of hydration for me for the day. It's perfect under my makeup and will always be part of my morning routine.
I really like this product! I watch Youtube and emilynoel83 was talking about this product when she was having some skin problems and said it really seemed to help her. I had to try it. I have seborrheic dermatits in my T-zone as well as being acne prone. Since I starting using this moisturizer about a month ago my flakiness and redness have completely cleared up. Right now I am only using it at night and using my Clinique DDMG during the day Once it starts staying cold and my skin gets dryer I will start using the Aveeno day and night.
I'm not sure what to say about this product. I originally wanted the "night cream" version (I hate creams with SPF), but I couldn't find it anywhere around here, so I got this one instead. When I was 16-17 (that's 12-13 years ago, eep!), I had really bad acne and Aveeno's products were the only ones that worked for me. In the past few years, my skin has become drier and drier, but I've always had relatively good success with Aneeno's Ultra-Calming line of products. This daily moisturizer works OK as a... moisturizer. It keeps my skin hydrated for a few hours and it offers great protection against sunlight effects.
However, it really stinks. I mean, it REALLY does. It's worse than sunblock lotion. The texture is light, but it's oily/greasy and doesn't absorb quickly into my skin. I'm almost done with the 120 mL bottle I purchased 9 months ago and didn't notice any improvement on redness or tone of skin. To be fair, though, I don't have a lot of redness and my tone is already decently even. So yep, I'm still not sure if I'm going to repurchase or not. Aveeno's products tend to be overpriced around here (above 20$).
This is the best SPF face lotion around! I have combination skin that is acne prone and this doesn't make me break out and also takes away any redness that I am prone too since my skin is also very sensitive. It feels great to wear- doesn't have that SPF feeling. I also use it on my neck, chest and arms.
I bought this moisturizer a year ago when my skin started to get really dry and red for no reason. I mixed it with a few drops of jojoba oil and was immediately hooked. I breakout really easily and this didn't cause any damage to my skin whatsoever. According to the Aveeno website It's also noncomedogenic (meaning it won't break you out) http://www.aveeno.com/facialcare/ultra-calming-spf15, which I think is really important to include on something you will be using on your face daily. I would recommend and I have bought again.
Started using this when I noticed that the Aveeno Positively Ageless w/SPF 15 moisturizer was actually drying my skin out. This moisturizer is nice and I like that it doesn't leave a white cast over my face, as most SPF-laced moisturizers do. The consistency of the product is very soft and it goes on smoothly. This product hasn't broken me out and appears to calm my oft irritated skin. I notice that my skin appears a bit dewy after several hours of wearing this though, which some people may not care for, but to me--especially now that it's getting cold outside, it appears that I have a healthy glow... and I like that look. Will repurchase.
finally realized after changing moisturizers.... this was totally contributing to my breakouts!! i swear as soon as i changed it my makeup lasted longer on my face, it didn't get as oily and my face didn't break out as much. so now i really dislike this stuff. i would never buy it again or recommend it to a friend that has sensitive skin. if you never get breakouts then maybe this would be good for you but if you do... i would say stay far away!!
