I received this tinted moisturiser as a gift. As I was keen to incorporate some sunscreen in my skincare routine, I was excited to try this. However this is possibly one of the worst things I've ever put on my face.
I got this in Fair to Light. This tinted moisturiser comes in a pump bottle, which is hygienic. And you can twist the pump nozzle to close off so no product is dispensed, and this is very travel-friendly. However, this is about the only positive thing I can say about this product.
I first tried this in July. I put this on my face and only had it on for about 2 - 3 hours in the late afternoon. I didn't even go out in the sun. Then I had my evening shower and washed off the tinted moisturiser, to my horror I found itchy, red patches on my face! As someone with sensitive skin, I knew immediately it was contact dermatitis from something I had used on my face. It just so happened that I started using a new serum that morning, so I wasn't sure whether it was the serum or the Aveeno tinted moisturiser that broke me out. It took me about a month to heal.
Fast forward to October, I decided to give this Aveeno tinted moisturiser another go. I had stopped using that new serum in July so it will be a more accurate trial this time around. So earlier this week, I put the tinted moisturiser on my face and left it on for about 4 - 5 hours, again, I didn't go out in the sun. In order to try this product out properly, I had used nothing else, i.e. just the Aveeno tinted moisturiser. When I had my evening shower and washed off the tinted moisturiser; I found the same itchy red patches on my face again!
I didn't mention the shade-matching till now, because it's something I was fine with and now I'm not. When I tried it in July, the Fair to Light shade was a good match, it looks natural. But now, it has a strong orange tinge, even though I had twisted the nozzle to close it off, put in back in the package box and placed it somewhere cool and out of sunlight. And this offers coverage so sheer, it might as well be a normal untinted moisturiser. The package box has 2015 expiry printed on it, so it's still a fresh product, but just useless.
I'm disappointed in every single aspect of this product. It's been several days, but even with prescription medication to treat the red patches, it's still painful and itchy. For my skin to develop such severe reaction in such a short time, shows how much irritants this tinted moisturiser contains. Now I know for sure and I won't let this product go near my face again.

After reading so many great reviews about this product, I was thoroughly disappointed after buying it. It has terrible coverage (even for a BB cream) with a thick and gluggy consistency which doesn't blend well. Smell can be overpowering for many, leaves your face looking like a disco ball in the sunlight and the pump dispenser is less than average as it leaves a solid residue after each use. Should also mention that I recently found out that Aveeno tests on animals... THUMBS DOWN.

I love that its natural and it really does hide imperfections. However make sure to get the right coloured tint or else it will definitely wont look natural. It stays on all day and the SPF is fantastic. Ive been using it for a month and have had no problems so far. I also like the subtle scent.

I have to say I was pretty disappointed with this product. I found that this product actually made my skin feel itchy - not what I was expecting from a moisturiser! I found the texture to be quite thick and it felt heavy on my face. I also found it to have a quite oily finish, making my face look very shiny - not a great look! I have quite fair skin but even the 'fair to light' shade was too dark for me - it looked quite unnatural. I was hoping for a 'summer glow' but my face just ended up looking orange.
On the plus side, the pump bottle it comes in is easy to use and I do like the sun protection that it provides - it worked as advertised in this regard. All up not a product I'll be buying again.

Gives Skin Nourishment & A Luminous Glow
The tinted moisturiser comes boxed.
It comes in a 75ml plastic pump action bottle.
I have Medium sheer tint shade with SPF 15 UVA/UVB sunscreen.
Its an oil free tinted moisturiser for face and neck, used daily to nourish skin and give lightweight coverage.
The tinted moisturiser is a mid beige shade with a thick consistency.
Texture is smooth and creamy.
It has a pleasant fragrance.
Its applied to face and neck after cleansing and toning and can be reapplied as needed.
I use a foundation brush to apply the tinted moisturiser.
Pump some onto the brush, start in the middle of my face and smooth and blend over skin until I have an even coverage.
The creamy formula easy to blend.
My skin tone can be a little dull and looks patchy at times, the tinted moisturiser instantly brightens my skin, giving it a luminous glow which is positively radiant, pardon the pun, and it helps to even my skin tone.
Its non greasy and feels comfortable on skin.
Formulated with skin loving ingredients and natural minerals to keep skin healthy and looking good.
Its most suitable for my combination skin.
Made in Canada

"You look sweaty" - Boyfriend
So I originally bought this because I'd read so many glowing reviews in girls magazines.
Didn't it win an award? That's another little push in the advertising hypnosis plan that made me buy this product.
I was hoping for the summer glow. The sweet, dewy juicy face.
The first compliment I got was from my boyfriend. "You look sweaty".
Not what I had anticipated.
Smells a bit funky too like a fake tan lotion.
It's not tooooooo bad. I'd wear it maybe around the house or to the beach. But it doesn't seem like the kind of thing you'd use if you were dressing up to go out.
Bit of a let down really. I expected more!
Sweat on, dudes.

Not good coverage
I thought this would be a good replacement for my missha BB cream but it isnt.. Aveeno is great for their body moisturisers and i think they should stick to just that.
This wasn't a good tone for my skin, plus the texture doesn't seem even with the colour. Like it wasn't mixed properly.
When you put it on, it just feels like a normal moisturiser, the tint is barely there...
i wouldn't waste money buying this again.. just stick to the normal moisturiser bottles Aveeno has..

It's no BB cream
I dont mind this product but i doubt i will buy it again. It feels think and gluggy on my face even when i only apply a little amount. It almost feels as though i was applying sunscreen to my face. I wanted to try it because i love all the other aveeno products, but i think they need to work on the consistency. Think ill stick with my BB creams.

Healthy amazing looking skin!
My skin is in pretty good condition with no pimples or scars. I went for this tinted moisturiser because it boasted an oil free formula with the soy complex plus the ingredients list looked a lot more friendly than some of the other tinted moisturisers on the market.
The pump is very convenient and dispenses just the correct amount. One pump is enough to cover the whole face then BLEND! BLEND! BLEND! it can be a little thick, which may be due to the SPF content. After the blending it does lend an even colour. At first the minor glitter particles bothered me as I don't like glitter-anything. Now I'm totally in love with it and don't think the glitter is too much. I had compliments on how refreshed and amazing my skin looked wearing this after I had just got back to Oz after a 24 hour flight. That was proof enough this tinted moisturiser can work semi-miracle!!!

Even skin tone!
I bought this product when it was reduced to $9 and I thought I should just give this a try and I'm glad I did!
It reduced the oilyness in my t-zone and it really does even out my skin tone like it says it does. But it is not so easy to blend into my skin which is a downer.
