I've been using this moisturizer for almost a year and it is my HG! It does what it claims - leaves skin soft and smooth, improves skin texture, evens out skin tone, improves skin clarity, prevents breakouts, and clears up blemishes. My skin used to be horrible...since i am acne-prone. So yeah, after a few months my skin has cleared up COMPLETELY! Trust me, its worth the money =D
HALLELUJAH!!! Finally, a moisturizer that doesn't break me out or clog my pores!!! I am extremely acne and clog prone. Just to give you a small sample of moisturizers I have tried:
DML, Eucerin, Amlactin, LacHydrin, Aqua Glycolic, Solvere, MD Forte Hydrating Gel, J&J, several from Olay, Neutrogena, LRP, and Avene, Lubriderm, Replenix Serum, Derma E, Cetaphil, CeraVe, Boots... well, you get the idea. There have been several others as well. I have been looking for a basic moisturizer to use in the winter under my Tazorac, or for times when my skin is feeling dry any flakey. This is PERFECT! It does contain 0.5% Salicylic Acid at a 3.7 pH, but honestly, that's not enough to do anything for your pores. I am able to mix this with my alcohol based BHA or I have also mixed it with my antioxidant serum and Hyaluronic Acid serum. I love that it is easy to adjust to my needs depending on the day and how my skin feels. I used this moisturizer several years ago when I was using MMU, when I stopped the MMU, I stopped using this as well, I had completely forgotten about this moisturizer. I'm thrilled I have rediscovered this, and now it's truly a staple in my skincare supply. I LOVE it!!! ♥

I have been wanting to try a ds moisturizer since I ran out of Skinceauticals. This is the first Aveeno product that I have used. I like that this comes in a pump, and it really has smoothed my skin. My pores seem smaller but I am also using other skin care products that could be doing that. I guess its the salicylic acid, my skin responds great to this ingredient. The smell is kind of strong, but that doesn't bother me. So far, I am impressed with Aveeno Clear Complexion Moisturizer, it has been a little over a month of using it and I have no complaints.
This product wasn't what I expected for the price that I paid! Supposedly it has salicylic acid, unfortunately it hasn't helped with my acne, I only have a few small pimples on my hairline. My skin tone has improved although I'm not sure if it's this product or the fact that I've been drinking a lot of water. Well, I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone. SAVE YOUR MONEY!
I really wanted to like this moisturizer, but it just didnt do anything good for my face. I actually think it broke me out more!! It goes on fine, but seems to be a little greasy. If you rub it in too much it tends to "roll" off of your skin, ick!! The smell isnt great, and it does kinda resemble cat pee, as another reviewer once said about this stuff. I think for $15.00 I could of found something better. Also if you do have any kind of a pimple this stuff stings like crazy!! As far as packaging, the only thing I disliked was when you go to pump this out of the bottle the first bit is dried up, everytime, so you have to disect it out of the rest before you try to spread it on your face. Anyhow I found a better moisturizer for less money so I wont be repurchasing this again.
I don't know what to say about this product. It's just one of those so-so products that is pretty hard to describe.
I wouldn't say I hate it but I don't like it either.
First of all, it smells nice. Very fresh, clean scent.
Second of all, one pump of this goes a long way. It abosrbs pretty quick too.
And last but not least, it did not clear up my pimples. It's just the same!! And it was not moisturizing enough for me. I needed something extra to hydrate my face.
I would not recommend this although it might work on some people's skin, it did not work for me. I'm still using it.......and i would NOT buy it AGAIN.
My super-sensitive cystic-prone skin does well in the winter with this; i use it in the morning in combination 2% BP and my skin is nicely moisturized but not greasy. Too heavy for me in the Tennessee summer when, even at 45+, I am an oil slick.
Let me just say a few things:
I have been using this product since I was 15 (keep in mind I am now 21). I have never used a product that has been so good for my skin. I used to have acne, and with this, my skin completely cleared up. A godsend. Not only did it clear up my existing acne, it helped give me this glow... every day when I woke up in the morning. Redness was gone, and I had this glow so typical of Aveeno products. I highly recommend this product. But don't expect it to be a miracle if you have terrible acne. I only had minor unsighly acne that Aveeno helped clear up. Highly, highly recommended.
Cons: a bit on the pricey side.. 14 bucks a pop at Wal Mart, but I WILL DEFINITELY rebuy. I've been rebuying it since 10th grade.
This is just a first impression. I'm overall impressed with the product because I feel like with this I'm not going to break out with it, although I can't honestly say if it's working 100% because I haven't been on it long enough (not yet 2 weeks). The plus side is that the moisturizer is nice and thick and makes my skin feel really soft and plump. I do like the overall function because it definitely doesn't make me oily. I only wish that it came with SPF because I love combining steps when I can, but that's absolutely fine. It feels so smooth on my skin, so I can't really see a problem. Ultimately, I think I'd buy it again, but I'll update you all further when I've used it or about a month.
Update: No complaints here. It helps prevent breakouts with the tiny bit of salicylic acid but it doesn't do much to clear them up. That's fine. If you spot treat your blemishes and use this, you'll see an amazing difference in your skin. Plus, my skin has never looked so healthy.
I use this product every night before I go to bed and during the day, if I stay home all day. This moisturizer has soy and 0.5% Salicylic acid. I love this product for the fact that it makes my skin super soft and also prevents break outs. It doesn’t heal my break outs but I definitely break out less then I used to. The main reason I love it because it is very gentle, soft, and keeps my skin in shape. I took one lippy off because it doesn’t have SPF. So I do not use it in the morning. I am on my second bottle and definitely repurchase again.
