REVIEW: Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturiser SPF15

24 Apr

Time for another review!

Next on the chopping block is Aveeno’s Positively Radiant Daily Moisturiser with SPF 15 (UVA/UVB sunscreen).
This was given to me in a pack of 3 – so I have plenty of product to try!

I heard about this before actually receiving the product, due to the claimed properties of evening out skin tone.
A friend of mine uses it religiously and has found nothing better than this to fight her hyper-pigmentation caused by the occasional blemish.

Looking for a more hydrating moisturiser than the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising Gel that I’ve been using lately, I thought I’d better give this one a shot!

At first, this moisturiser gave me pretty bad breakouts.
It was made worse by my monthlies arriving just in time to greet the effects of this new moisturiser, but the sudden change in products definitely brought blemishes to my skin.

Because of it’s thick creamy texture, I was a little wary when applying to a blemished face – I tried to smooth on the lightest layer and concentrate it ONLY IF there was a significant dry patch.
This seemed to help reduce flaring.

Once my skin started to accept this moisturiser though, I found that it’s not too bad of a product!

The consistency is thick and creamy – obviously much heavier than the Clinique Moisturising Gel that I used beforehand.
But this in turn provided hydration, which is what my skin lacked after I tried to only feed it gel moisturisers.

There is no scent, so that’s great for any sensitive noses out there.
And the moisturiser isn’t greasy or unpleasant to any degree. Just thick.

After using up about half the bottle, I’ve noticed that my hyper-pigmentation has reduced.
The spots are slightly lighter than they were before and my skin has smoothed out.

Lines and dullness has faded away from the lack of hydration, and one great thing to note: my skin isn’t producing as much oils throughout the day. So I’m saved from having a constant shine on my T-Zone.

With oily skin, I was worried that this moisturiser wouldn’t be right for me. But it’s in fact improved the balance of oils in my skin by providing that hydration I always starved it from – thinking it was the right thing to do for oily skin types.
I would suggests any other like-faced readers out there to try a lotion or cream moisturiser if they’re having the same problems. It definitely helped me from wasting a whole lot of blotting paper throughout the day.

In saying all these positive points though, I must admit that this moisturiser still didn’t provide the same level of results with evening my skin tone as the L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Lumiere Serum I reviewed a few months ago.
That product was definitely a holy grail. It evened out majority of my hyper-pigmentation in such a short amount of time, I was getting compliments on how great my skin was looking!

If you’re only having small amounts of pigmentation or uneven skin tone though, this is a great option.
It doubles as your daily moisturiser so you’re cutting out that extra step, and it’s quite affordable at your local Priceline or drugstore.

Overall, I’m giving it a 7/10.
It’s a pretty good moisturiser with the added benefit of evening skin tones. The bottle has a great pump that’s always handy, and a locking device inbuilt so any travelling won’t result in a layer of moisturiser at the bottom of your bag.

Give it a try ladies and gents. This might be what you’ve been looking for all this time.
My tip though is just to give it some time. It’s not quite the miracle that’ll give you results with the first couple of weeks of use.

Lovelove,

Rean.
