I'd been wanting to try this, and finally decided to pick some up. I've been using it for a week now and I have to say I do see a difference.

This is a nice, light moisturizer that goes on really well and absorbs quickly. Very lightly scented too, which I don't mind, and it has made my skin feel really soft. The parts of my face that were prone to redness are no longer red, and the overall tone is better and more even. The added bonus of SPF 30 is great too.

For a daily moisturizer I really like it, and will buy again.

I have oily, acne prone skin and I've been recovering from scars on my face; When I first started using this moisturizer I got tiny pimples on my face(guessing my face was getting used to it); after two weeks, my face didn't react to it, it became part of my daily routine. As far as the hydration goes, I like the fact that it's not oily; when I apply it under my makeup it looks good. I didn't give it five stars because I honestly didn't think it made the marks on my face fade away. It gave my face a glow though.

I have used this product for years. It is one of the few face moisturizers that doesn't make me break out or turn my face into an oil slick. I also like the way my foundation goes on over it. I have never noticed that it fades my blemish scars, but then again I haven't been monitoring this at all. My one complaint about this product is the packaging...it is difficult to get the remaining lotion out of the bottle when it's almost empty. I would love to see this product in a squeeze bottle!

It made me break out horribly. I changed nothing except my moisturizer to this. I don't know what to do with the bottle now.

Let's get straight to the point... The only thing I like about this moisturiser is the fact that it's in a pump bottle that can be locked shut.
Other than that, all disappointment I'm afraid.
This is my first Aveeno product and it has not left a good first impression. The main concern about this product is that it burns my eyes to the point where it looks like I'm crying. I have tried applying it nowhere near my eyes too but somehow throughout the day my eyes will still end up stinging. It also feels my skin feeling greasy, not as much as straight up sunscreen - but significantly close. Stay away from this product.

I've found the trick to using this moisturizer is to use lots of it. Really let it sink into your skin. The first time I tried it, I only used one pump and spread it thinly over my face. I could feel little pieces rubbing off my skin and could not apply makeup on top. I also felt a bit of stinging. The next day I used about 2.5 pumps and slathered it on. SO MUCH BETTER! This tends to dry to a matte finish on my combination skin. My foundation now applies great on top, using my beauty blender. No flakiness/pieces rubbing off like before.

I have not experienced any redness or breakouts so far. Although I am using this in combination with the radiance cleanser and makeup remover. I can see some improvement in the evenness of my skin by using these products. So far this moisturizer is meeting my expectations, which is rare for my skin!

I have never had a bad reaction to a facial product. Ever! Not even prescription retinol did this to my face.

This is Aveeno. It should be gentle. Yes, they claim natural but reading the label you know the sunscreens are all chemical. This product ruined my skin. It burns going on. Okay, some sunscreens do. But on day four my skin was bright red, chapped, peeling, stinging. I spent half a day at home putting ice on my face.

I was looking for a moisturizer with sun protection and so I picked this one up because of the spf 30. Although I do love that it protects against the sun, I found this moisturizer really weird. When I apply it, if I rub it too much, it starts to peel off. Also, after applying it, my dry patches are immediately much more noticeable. I will keep using it for the sun protection but I definitely need to use it in combination with my regular moisturizer. I would not buy this product again.

MY HG moisturizer... good ingredients, buildable moisture, spf 30, and has a pump. Better than expensive moisturizers i used before, the price on this isn't cheap but its worth it. Good for normal/oily/combo skin (I have combo)

I have enjoyed Aveeno Ultra-Calming Daily Moisturizer on and off for a few years now, but I often find it to be a bit too heavy/greasy to use under my makeup in the summer.

I picked this product up instead, mostly for the higher SPF, and wow, it makes my skin very sensitive. My skin can handle some powerful skincare, but this product is just so uncomfortable to wear. It almost hurts my skin a little when apply it?

I apply it everywhere but near my eyes, always stopping right before the orbital bone, but I still find my eyes watering/burning with this product on my face. The feeling does not last all day, but I feel like it might be making my skin more sensitive as I keep using it.

I wish I knew what ingredient causes so many people to have reactions like I did? Especially seeing as I rarely have any issues with moisturizers.

Other than the initial sting, it does wear well through out the day under my makeup. Not too heavy or greasy, so I might use the bottle up, but I will definitely not be repurchasing it.
