So, I really wanted to like this... But, I couldn't. I have dry combination skin w/ some hiperpigmentation spots on my right cheek. This product made my skin feel oily and it did not sink well into the skin at all. Note that I used a pea size amount to cover most of my face and I still felt oily (unheard of w/ my skin). The smell is another con to this one... Suuuuper strong! After a good hour I could still sense the smell of it on my face. Yuck. I will say though that the packaging is great, nice sized bottle and pump w/ a nice lock-twist thingy. Sorry Aveeno, better luck next time.

This product is... average. It's nothing special, unless I compare it to my Neutrogena Ultrasheer. I don't consider myself having oily skin, but wearing this product outside makes me look like an oil slick. As far as evening tone and texture. I don't really think it's done much. The main fantastic thing about this product is its packaging. I love the packaging. It has a cap that can lock into place. :) I also like the fact that it's SPF 30. Other than that, ehh. It's nothing special. Don't waste your money.
Edit: I think they changed the formula. It is less runny now. Although the new formula doesnt make my face look so oily, it stings my skin like someone slashed my face and poured salt in the cuts.

Yes, there are shimmers in this product.
Yes it's a little thicker than most tinted moisturizers.
But when I but it on your face it makes my skin look so radius and beautiful. It makes my skin looks soft and still touchable. I apply it with a sponge just like the way I apply foundations. Over the past 2 months of using it, my freckles actually got lighter. The SPF definitely works good. Although the first time I use it and see sparkles on my hand I got scared a little, it actually doesn't show up when it's on my face. Great product and great ingredients. I feel better when I use it everyday.

I received a good sized sample of this with the purchase of a face wash. I used it for two days and I decided I really do not like it. It was very hard for me to get this to absorb into my skin, it left a waxy whitish cast to my skin, and it pilled up under my makeup. I don't know if the increased spf had something to do with the problems I had with this product, because I've used the same moisturizer with the spf 15 and it wasn't anything special, but it wasn't bad either. I had high hopes for this, because my facialist (is that a word?) told me to use spf 30 daily. I'll have to keep looking because this one just wasn't a winner in my book.

This is not tinted moisturizer or even moisturizer at all. This is very bad, cheap foundation that costs way too much. I got the medium which still left my light complexion pasty looking. It is difficult to blend, particularly at the hairline. It clumps and balls up while I'm applying it and, to add insult to injury, it is very DRYING to my skin. I have tried this for several days to give it a fair chance but, this morning, into the wastebasket it went. Goodbye $15 on a BAD BUY.

I have always had problems with breakouts or rashes when using sunscreen and/or tinted moisturizers. Not with this. It is great for my skin. It evens it out and provides protection AND I have noticed my skin looking 'better' too. I use very few products in the summer and this is one I will not be without. I use the medium shade and it is perfect for the hint of summer color I get. I went shopping the other day and the sales girl said I looked radiant and how did I do that? It is totally this product! Word of caution, I found that sometimes it balls up if I apply it over another product like a moisturizer or primer with lots of 'cones so if that happens to you will know why. I found that now I don't need them anyway. I was going to a formal occasion so I thought I would use my regular foundation that had worked fine for me before....wow..... I washed it off !! I reapplied the Aveeno because my skin just looked so much more natural and better! I am really, really happy I found this product! I

I used this product a couple of times..
This product was amazing on my skin its seems to give me the right amount of coverage for the discoloration i have its my first tinted moisturizer and i think it does a great job. I don't really have huge problem areas so its good. The shimmer is a little noticeable to me but i like it gives a dewy glow. I've read all the negative comments but I think its great!
FYI: Tinted moisturizer is a foundation your suppose to apply your normal moisturizer/primer underneath it to have it not dry out and look bad on your skin!
Overall for the quality its pretty good but the bad side to this product is its a little drying to me so I NEED MOISTURIZER UNDERNEATH lol it has to do with all sunscreens in my case
The price is kinda high end drugstore to me lol but I usually get it discounted in my bedandbath store with those coupons so its ok
I Will Update when i used this product more longer~

I bought this because the Aveeno seems to make one of the few SPF moisurizers that I'm not allergic to. This product is is thicker than I prefer, so I just use one pump. That makes me think I may not be using enough to get the SPF benefit. I bought medium, and I like the look. My skin can be oily in the T-zone, but not super oily. I just blot later in the day. I may try light next time. This is not my HG TM, but it works until I find what I want. It did not cause breakouts or other problems. It has a bit of glow that I like. It looks more like a highlighter, not glitter.

Okay, let me just say this product is pretty terrible. I have combo skin that tends to get oilier in the summer heat, and I was breaking out. I was also running out of my favorite tinted moisturizer from Boots (the Botanics line one in the color Almond, which Target no longer carries). I saw this Aveeno stuff in the grocery store, on sale. Admittedly, I was sucked in by the packaging. These pumps are GREAT! So hygienic and convenient and attractive. It was an impulse buy, but my thought at the time was "How bad could it possibly be? It's got tint, it's got SPF 30, and it has a pump bottle."

Well, it's pretty freaking awful. This product is THICK, much too thick to be called a "moisturizer." Who are they kidding? This is full-on, sticky, tacky drug store foundation with the orange tint and all. Plus it SMELLS extremely strong, like cheap perfume and chemicals. To make this stuff wearable, I mix it with a little Cover Girl CG Smoothers foundation, and it goes on a much nicer color and far smoother.

I would NEVER wear this by itself, and it's certainly no replacement for my HG tinted moisturizer, Boots Botanics in Almond. Oh well. At least I tried!

If you look at the ingredients, you'll see this is just a glorified sunscreen. I can't imagine what is in it that would make your skin more "radiant" (Aveeno claims it's the "total soy complex" and "natural light diffusers"). Overall I find this a mediocre lotion with good marketing. It's also so expensive for what it is! Never buying again. Sticking with Neutrogena Healthy Defense.
