I can't beleive I haven't written a review for this product so far. I have sensitive/combo/acne prone skin and its really hard to find a product that will not cause one of these things to act up. A while ago I saw this in the drugstore and picked it up without reading the reviews on here. (which I never do) I've been using it everyday for the past few months and really like it. I cannot speak for how effective the sunscreen in it is and I am sure someone else on here can tell us but other than that its great. I apply it every morning after my shower, sinks in, does not leave my skin oily or dry, my skin does not get oily or dry after a few hours. I haven't had any reaction to my sensitive skin or acne or clogged pores. I'm a mom of 2 young ones and don't have more than 5 mins to do my hair and makeup so this works coz I put this on and then my MAC studio fix and its perfect. Gotta see how it hold up in the winter but for now this is my HG.

I was diagnosed with melasma and the dermatologist said I needed to starting using a moisturizer with UVA and UVB protection every day to help prevent any darkening spots. They gave me piles of expensive samples to try and my sensitive skin reacted to every single one. Finally I caved and bought this at a drugstore to try. I was shocked. This is one of the first sunscreens I have ever used that I haven't had a reaction too. Not only that, but after just a month of use I noticed my melasma had improved dramatically. I use this every single day under my foundation and it has been great. I don't notice any smell to it at all despite the comments from others and I am really sensitive to products that smell. This is a great product and I love the fact that you just twist the top to lock it for traveling! It is great and has never spilled when I travel. I am thrilled with this product and will continue to use it!

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
