Aveeno Clear Complexion Daily Moisturiser

Describe the brand in three words.
Drugstore. Body products.

Who is it for?
Combination/oily/acne/younger skins.

What’s in it?

What’s not in it?
oil, mineral oil, parabens

Possibly acne/allergy/troubling for some ingredients?
fragrance, polyacrylamide

Suitable for pregnancy?

Natural? Organic? Man made? Vegan?

Tested on animals in home country/EU/sold in territories that require testing?
So: it’s labelled as having a ‘drug’ ingredient in the form of salicylic, so it’s highly possible it is tested in the US. If anyone knows for sure, let me know in the comments.

How does it smell?
Fresh, citrus.

How do you use it?
One pump, all over, on top of serum or oil.

Can it be taken around the eyes?
I wouldn’t, I’d go as far as the orbital bone.

Best for winter or summer?
Either. Summer for people who are combination, both for acne/oily.

How long did I test it for?
I’ve had it a month, and also tested it on my teenage girl.

How much is it? /Size/Approximate cost per usage?
$13.49/$14.99 for 4ozs. It’s a good size, this will last a good few months. You only need a little.

Works well with?
Oddly enough, being oil-free, it works well over an oil serum. It’s light, so you can use it to seal in other products without it being sticky and heavy.

What’s the website like?
Pretty basic, pictures of the ingredients as opposed to lists (hence the picture here!): www.aveeno.com

How’s the distribution? Available freely or limited?
Well it’s in Amazon and Target, so pretty ‘out there’.

What’s good about it?
I usually think of body products when I think of Aveeno. I bought this with Ava in mind, but ended up playing with it myself. I like it. It’s light, absorbs well and you only need a tad. It smells fresh, works well with other products, and is a perfectly good moisturiser. If we needed any further proof, Ava has since sought it out and stolen it back.

What’s not so good about it?
It’s pretty chemical-heavy, so if you’re a ‘natural’ person, you won’t be a fan.

Would I purchase/repurchase?

Do you need it?
If you have a problem skin, yes, check it out. If you have hot, sweaty days were you feel like your cream is stuck to your face and won’t absorb, maybe check it out.
