Good skin is the base for good makeup. Moisturizer and sunscreen should be must-haves in everyone’s skin care routine. Today, I am going to review a product which has both, it is the Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer with SPF 30. It comes in SPF 15 variant as well, but the sun is harsh in the place where I stay. If not more, SPF 30 is the minimum level of protection I should go for.
Get advanced sun protection with this SPF 30 daily moisturizer. Clinically proven Total Soy Complex and natural light diffusers work to naturally even out skin tone and immediately reflect light to bring out skin’s natural radiance. Gentle enough for sensitive skin and daily use, this moisturizer is also oil-free, hypoallergenic, noncomedogenic, and contains SPF 30 UVA/UVB sunscreen to protect skin from premature ageing. The positively Radiant collection utilizes the naturally active benefits of Soy and evens out skin tone and texture to reveal skin’s true radiance naturally. Soybeans also contain Vitamin E, which has antioxidant properties which can help protect skin from environmental stresses like free radicals.
$16.99 for 75 ml.
Let me talk about the main features I expect from a good moisturizer with sun protection:
- Smooth texture.
- Should get absorbed easily.
- Should not be greasy.
- Should keep the skin moisturized throughout the day without making it oily.
- Should not leave a white cast in case it has SPF in it.
- Should not cause breakouts.
- Should give good sun protection.
- Should not disturb my makeup.
I would consider anything more than this as a bonus. Now, does the Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer with SPF 30 cover all these features. Yes, it does it all.
It comes in a bottle with a pump dispenser. I use 3 pumps for my face and neck. I massage it on my face, leave it on for like a minute to get it absorbed completely before I start with my makeup. This one does not leave a white cast like some of the sunscreen does.
I have combination skin and my T-zone gets oilier as the day goes. With this one, my T-zone does not get very shiny even by evening and it moisturizes my dry area quite well and that stays moisturized throughout the day. More importantly, my face stays fresh throughout the day and the makeup does not become patchy.
I have been using this for more than a month now. I don’t see any special radiance on my face. Also, I don’t have any blotchiness or brown spots to comment about that.
Pros of Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer:
- Smooth texture.
- Gets absorbed easily.
- Not greasy.
- Keeps the skin moisturized throughout the day without making it oily.
- Does not leave a white cast.
- Did not cause breakouts.
- Gives good sun protection.
- Does not disturb my makeup.
- Oil-free, hypoallergenic, noncomedogenic, so safe for sensitive skin as well.
- Does not have any smell to it. Again, good for sensitive skin people.
Cons of Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer:
- The bottle does not come with a cap. So, the nozzle is directly exposed to external environment, not a very hygienic packaging. Also, not suitable to be carried while travelling.
All in all, its a good moisturizer plus sunscreen for all skin types. Other than the above cons, I don’t find any issues with this product and my hubby uses this and he loves it too 🙂
