In the spotlight today is Michelle, who completed an informative written review giving us her thoughts on the product. Check out what Michelle and the rest of the review team had to say!
"I really enjoyed using the Aveeno Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturiser. I found it the perfect product to use on the weekend, especially as I wear heavy makeup during the week to work. It was easy to apply and I didn't find that I had any streaky marks over my face, as I have an extremely fair skin tone. My favourite part about this product was that it absorbed into my skin well and remained in place for the duration of the day, and it's subtle light-reflecting particles gave my an extra glow. I wish that it had an SPF factor of 30, but I will still continue to use it. I would definitely recommend this product to my friends." — Michelle

"I was quite surprised at the thickness in texture of this moisturiser. It squeezes out almost like a foundation, it's very creamy but not greasy. The thickness gives a surprisingly good coverage, more than most tinted moisturisers I’ve used. It has a matte finish which has its merits, but I usually prefer a more illuminated look. As with the other Aveeno moisturisers, I find the synthetic fragrance overbearing and am surprised that a “natural” marketed product would have such a strongly fragranced product. The smell is fresh — cucumber and oat — but all strong synthetic versions of these scents. This would actually put me off buying. I also really think they should stretch to SPF30, which is another deal breaker for me. I probably wouldn’t buy this again due to the fragrance. They should really review this and try to make a more natural offering. I really love Aveeno’s Daily Moisturiser which is 100 percent unscented." — Julie
"I was very excited to try the Aveeno Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturiser, especially with the weather warming up as our need for heavy foundations is lessened. This actually provides more coverage than I expected, with a little bit of concealer it makes skin look fairly flawless. It also has a slight shimmer to it, which is what gives the “Radiant”-ness of the name. It has a lovely soothing scent, which goes away after about half an hour. Having SPF in it means that you also don’t need to apply separate sunscreen on, thus making your summer morning routine even simpler. That said, this isn’t the right product for me. I have normal to dry skin and I found it made my dry patches look flaky. This was surprising considering it is a moisturiser. I suppose a way to address this is to apply a separate moisturiser on before putting this Aveeno on, however that to me defeats the purpose of using a tinted moisturiser in the first place. I used the Fair to Light which initially it looked slightly pale, but half an hour later the colour had adjusted to match my skin tone. I wish it had stayed that same colour though, because about two hours later when I checked my face again it had actually gone noticeably darker and streakier looking on my face. I think in summer when my face is darker and possibly oilier, this would work for me." — Lilit
