Review: Aveeno Positively Ageless Youth Perfecting Moisturizer

9:00 AM

Last but not least on my Aveeno lineup this week: Aveeno's Positively Ageless Youth Perfecting Moisturizer.
A nourishing lotion shown to reveal younger-looking skin and help prevent premature skin aging with advanced sun protection. You will see:
- Reduced appearance of lines and wrinkles
- Younger-looking, more vibrant skin
- Softer, smoother skin.
Something I think important to us all is SPF.  The Youth Perfecting Moisturizer has SPF 30, so not only does this product help make the skin look more youthful, it helps protect the new skin cells that are being produced.

Like the Lifting and Firming eye cream, this product is also in a pump applicator.  Again, I can't stress enough how big of a "plus" this is for me with regards to face lotions and treatments. 

Below I applied a pump of the moisturizer and the eye cream on my hand.  As you can see this is a thicker, whiter, cream.  Because of the increased SPF in the moisturizer, this has more of the consistency of a sunscreen, without the greasiness. 

Aveeno's Positively Ageless Youth Perfecting Moisturizer is thick, rich, and very moisturizing.  The fragrance is fresh, with a hint of that "sunscreen" smell, but it is not overpowering.  My skin is normal, to almost dry in the winter months.  The consistency is similar to a sunscreen (maybe a bit thicker), so it does take a bit for the product to sink into the skin.  I have to keep in mind before I apply my primer and/or foundation.  My skin feels softer and healthier after application.  I have started to use this more on my neck and chin as well - an area I often forget when applying my moisturizer!   
I have been using this for the past three weeks.  Although I haven't seen drastic changes in my skin's imperfections (outside of those mentioned yesterday with my fine lines and dark circles), I like the overall feel of my skin after application and use.  I will say, I've noticed a slight irritation in my eyes right after application if I rub it in near my eyes, and I'm sure this has to do with the sunscreen/SPF in the product.  It usually lasts an hour or so, until my eyes flush out whatever part of the moisturizer is irritating them.  Keep that in mind if you tend to be more sensitive to products around your eyes.
Overall, the product leave skin soft and has the benefits of SPF30.  With that said, the richness of this moisturizer makes it's use a bit time consuming in my morning routine.  Also, the concern of applying it around my eyes and having the irritating burn is a turn off as well.  Although I like how my skin feels from it's use, I doubt I will purchase this one again.  I wish I didn't have such sensitive skin and eyes, because this feels like the right moisturizer for me here in the winter months when my skin tends to get extremely dry and finicky. 
Have you tried this moisturizer?
