I recently reviewed Aveeno’s Tinted Moisturizer in the hopes of comparing it to the new Aveeno Clear Complexion BB Cream which just recently released at drugstores.
I’m almost always disappointed with drugstore BB Creams launched here in the US but I’m kinda hopeful I’ll find a gem one day.
Let’s take a look!
I’ve never tried Aveeno Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturizer so I thought I’d give it a test prior to trying the Aveeno Clear Complexion BB Cream as it would be easier to compare the two formulas.
Companies are a little guilty of switching around the names of their Tinted Moisturizers and simply adding “BB Cream” to new packaging so I wasn’t sure if Aveeno was doing the same thing. Both Covergirl and Olay have done this recently…!
After I review Aveeno Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturizer I’ll follow up with my review of the Aveeno Clear Complexion BB Cream to compare the two formulas.
Here’s my thoughts on the tinted moisturizer formula and I’ll follow up shortly with my thoughts and comparisons to the BB Cream formula!
Aveeno is set to release a Clear Complexion BB Cream for Spring 2013 in drugstores. Aveeno Clear Complexion BB Cream will be available in two shade selections, Fair to Light and Medium to Dark, for $16.99.
Aveeno already has a tinted moisturizer of sorts in their general catalog (I’ve never tried it but it seems interesting) so I’m unsure if they simply renamed that TM or if this is a brand new product.
I think $16.99 is a tad expensive but I’m still quite interested in purchasing. I suspect it’ll be very sheer and even if it is I think it might just be a nice tinted moisturizer formula none the less.
I’m quite eager to check it out.
Which BB Creams at the drugstore have wow’ed you lately?
Oh Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub I want to love you but you’re just not suitable for my dry, flaky skin. I need you to be tough but you’re terribly gentle…!
I’m always so tempted by Aveeno’s brightening marketing strategy. Slap “brightening” on any skincare and I’m on top of it! Sadly, Aveeno’s Brightening Collection just isn’t something that’s ever really captured me.
Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub sounds terribly tempting but for dry skin users it’s not the one that you want.
It’s ok to multitask your conditioner and use it not only on your head but also on your legs to shave with. However, I highly suggest NOT using your conditioner on your face.
Aveeno hasn’t quite grasped the concept that applying conditioner on your face is NOT good.
