I just bought the product a few days ago and have been loving it so much at night, that I've began using it during the day. I don't write reviews often but I check MUA constantly before I make any kind of purchase and I love it when reviews are thorough and organized so thats what I've tried to do here. :)
About my skin: I have normal to dry, sensitive skin. I rarely get acne, I do get the occasional blemish here and there. I tend to get clogged pores easily and I do have enlarged pores on my nose and cheeks. My skin sometimes gets an oily t-zone, mainly around the eyebrow region and my chin, but mostly remains normal. However, my around my nostrils and checks are generally very dry and sometimes even flaky. Lately, my skin has been very dull, and dehydrated looking despite my trying everything. I currently use Purpose face wash twice a day with St. Ives Green Tea Scrub about 3 -4 times a week ( to help with the flakiness and if I use the Green Tea scrub I won't use the Purpose so that I don't over wash and dry it out) I also use the Aztec Secret healing clay mask about 2 - 3 times a week if I can. I was using the CereVe's moisturizer, the one that comes in the tub (the name slips my mind at the moment) and I love it ( its great for the body too), but it wasn't making any real improvement on my face texture overall and making it a little greasy in my T- tone after a few hours if I used it during the day. I use the CereVe daily moisturizer with SPF during the day and that is doing the job for the most part.
About this Moisturizer: This Aveeno moisturizer has transformed the texture of my skin! I usually wait a little longer before trying to make an opinion about a product but this stuff is amazing. I've been using it for 3 days and can already feel a difference. My skin is soft and supple and the moisturizer itself is so surprisingly light. I honestly feel that even oily skin would love this. It does have a bit of a strong fragrance, however, it dissipates after in a few minutes after it is applied, leaving your skin feeling like silk.
For having dry skin, and this moisturizer being so surprisingly light for a night cream, it does the job quite well. I can even use it during the day ( I just pack it on a little heavier at night for that extra moisture to last through the evening). But when I wake up, my skin feels soft and hydrated the next day.
I had the Aveeno complexion clearing lotion in the past and it irritated my skin ( mainly around my nose which is my sensitive dry area and I think it was the salicylic acid in it) but it made my cheeks very soft and I always liked that even though I needed to stop using it. After this was recommended to me by someone I know who has the most beautiful, clear, even toned skin, (the conversation started because I asked her about her regimen because her skin is so flawless) and she told me she uses all Aveeno products, that convinced me to at least give this a try. Especially recalling how the complexion clearing lotion made my cheeks feel.
I AM IN LOVE with this so far and will probably end up buying the day lotion with SPF next, maybe even the face wash too ( I use Purpose right now and although its doing the job, it's very basic)
Anyway, I apologize for the length of this review, Im just so impressed with this I feel. This product needs to get the attention it deserves. Its definitely worth a shot, I'd say give it at least a week. Its been 3 days for me and texturally I see and feel a difference. Im curious to see if it will live to its claim of reducing dark spots and help with my dullness and tone. Even if it doesnt, I will continue to repurchase based on the texture of my skin alone.
I LOVE THIS. Give it shot. It's worth every penny.
