    Comments about Aveeno Smart Essentials Daily Nourishing Moisturizer SPF 30:

    I tried this one because I saw it has vitamin C instead of the regular aveeno positively radiant daytime moisturizer. I think this caused some slight irritation to my skin and seemed pretty greasy even though it claims to be oil free. I'll go back to the positively radiant moisturizer that I love.

          Comments about Aveeno Smart Essentials Daily Nourishing Moisturizer SPF 30:

          I love this moisturizer. While you do need to apply a decent amount for your skin to actually not be dry, it does do what it says it will. It leaves my skin nice and soft, and I'd say the only con is the amount you have to apply every time you use it. I combine this moisturizer with the Smart Essential face wash, and I love it. Sometimes I can go days without washing my face (or makeup off) when I'm not at home and I leave it at home, and my skin will still be soft and smooth.

                  Comments about Aveeno Smart Essentials Daily Nourishing Moisturizer SPF 30:

                  Spf and oil-free were the two main reasons I bought this product. However,I did not like it. It didn't smooth on very easily and it felt greasy on my skin. Not ideal, especially since I have oily skin. Eventually it absorbed and my skin did feel soft, but the cons far outweigh the good here.

                    This is a really solid moisturizer w/ SPF. w/ the added bonus of Vitamins C, E, & K. It is on the heavy/greasy side but I have yet to find a solid SPF that doesn't fall under that category. great use in the morning for combination moisturizer/SPF protection.

                    Comments about Aveeno Smart Essentials Daily Nourishing Moisturizer SPF 30:

                    I hate buying a product and throwing it out after a few uses, as is the story with this moisturizer. I bought this product on a recommendation, and within a few weeks I knew I just wasn't loving it. It didn't really moisturize my face, just left it feeling oily (I have combination skin with an oily T-zone), and like the product never really absorbed into the skin. Because of the excess oil, my makeup would break down 2-4 hours quicker than with other moisturizers. But since the product was lasting me a long time and I didn't want to waist my money by throwing it out, I kept using it. I've put up with it for about a year and am finally done with it! The only good thing I can say is that I think it smells nice and the SPF did a decent job, but past that the product just isn't that great. And next time something like this happens the product is going in the trash.
