Aveeno Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Saves You From the Burn

We’re well into spring now. Or, at least we’re supposed to be. The buds are only just starting to come out where I live. Still, if you’re going to be spending any time outdoors, you’re going to need a good SPF. Recently, I’ve been trying the Aveeno Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturizer for two reasons:

  • The tinted moisturizer acts like a sheer foundation.
  • The SPF 30 protects my skin from the sun.

And, as was the case over the weekend, that second point was the most important of all! Read on to hear my tale.

Aveeno Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturizer: The BoxesThe Aveeno Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturizer comes in two shades: Fair to Light and Medium.

I’ve been wearing the Fair to Light since my face got pretty darn pale over the winter. I’ll probably switch to Medium once I get tan over the summer. Because these shades are sheer, they can be easily switched that way.

Aveeno Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturizer: The BottlesMy birthday was a week ago, but I decided to celebrate it with my friends a week later—just a few days ago on Sunday. We decided to go to a hot springs to lounge around in the naturally hot water.

Relaxing, y’all!

Beforehand, I used the Aveeno Tinted Moisturizer on my face. By then, it had become a part of my morning routine. Did I use sunscreen on the rest of my body that day? No…

And, apparently the sun really had it out for me. My shoulders are now burnt. Sad!

But guess what? My face is fine. Success! The Aveeno Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturizer uses Homosalate (5%), Octinoxate (7.5%), Octisalate (5%) and Oxybenzone (2%) for the sunscreen.

Yep, it works.

Aveeno says the tinted moisturizer will improve tone, texture, brown spots, dullness and blotchiness on your face. Did I notice a difference? No. If there was any improvement in those things, it wasn’t a dramatic change.

On the plus side: there was almost no scent to this and it didn’t irritate my sensitive skin.

Aveeno Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Review: The Final Verdict

There are two things I want in a tinted moisturizer—good tinted coverage and good SPF—and the Aveeno Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturizer succeeds at both of those. But, the formula doesn’t live up to the added promises made by Aveeno. Still, if you’re looking for a good tinted moisturizer with SPF that doesn’t irritate your skin, this would be a good choice. For these reasons, I give it a…
