      I have pretty sensitive skin and can breakout if I don't use the right lotion. I have used this lotion for years now and it always gives me the best results. Keeps my fave hydrated and does not make me breakout

        Comments about Aveeno Smart Essentials Daily Nourishing Moisturizer SPF 30:

        I found this product about 4 years ago and have been using it since. It works great when my combo/combination oily skin is a little drier in the winter months. It is lightweight and absorbs fairly quickly. This product is also one of the least expensive SPF 30 moisturizers out there, so it's great for daily use. It was recommended by a local dermatologist so I am reassured it is a great product.

                    I bought this for my husband just cause. I ended up using the product and I've suffered from acne for to long. This is the first moisturizer that has transformed my skin from bad to excellent. My skin looks so healthy and vibrant. Give this product a chance.
