When it comes to cosmetics, I'm a total brand snob. When I was in my mid-twenties, I started purchasing higher-end face products from a dermatologist that were more tailored to my skin type, and couldn't believe the difference. It's been a long, long time since I bought a drugstore product for regular use on my face.

But one day I realized I was almost out of my regular $70/bottle nighttime moisturizer on the night before I went out of town for a week. Eeek! Desperate, I ran out to the store to find something that was least likely to destroy my skin. I picked up this Aveeno Smart Essentials Nighttime Moisture Infusion.

I was pleasantly surprised by what I found. First impression was that the product smelled good (light floral), it was creamy and relatively light (for a night moisturizer), and it absorbed into my skin like a dream. My skin never felt greasy afterward (although I should say that I actually prefer a slight dewiness on my face - better than flaky dryness!)

After I got back from my trip, my skin was looking and feeling fine, so I didn't rush to order my regular stuff. And by the time I got to the end of the jar (about two months later), my skin texture had actually improved! My skin was soft and smooth, no clogged pores on my forehead, no dry spots around my mouth, no sensitivity. But I was married to my old product, so I dutifully ordered a new bottle. Within a week, my skin felt so dry and tight, and I actually started to notice fine lines that weren't there before. And those pesky dry spots were back. Whaaaaaat? I ran back out to the drugstore and bought another jar of this stuff, and I haven't looked back. Now that $70 moisturizer will be my backup if I run out of THIS! :)

I'm fond of Aveeno's new Smart Essentials night cream. It gives great results, and in spite of the fact that the fragrance is very strong, I still appreciate it. However, the active ingredient, Southernwood, was once used to dye clothes yellow. I have noticed after using this cream nightly for two months that my complexion is taking on a distinctly saffron cast. Luckily all it took to reverse this effect was to switch out the night cream for an AHA for a little while. Now I am switching back and forth between the Aveeno night cream and the AHA and it is working out fine. On a completely different note, I would be curious to see the results of a self-tanner blending Southernwood with erythrulose, as it might produce a softer result than DHA. I wonder how this product would react if you used it alternately with a self-tanner? In any case, it's easy enough to reverse the unintended side effect if you don't like it. I recommend the product with only slight reservations.

    Wonderful moisturizer. Bought it cause I trust Aveeno more than any other brand and this didn't disappoint. I'm using Retina-A for some acne i have on my cheeks and this moisturizer is wonderful for the dying...ness the Retina-A causes.

      Comments about Aveeno Active Naturals Smart Essentials Nighttime Moisture Infusion with Vitamins A, C & E, 1.7 oz:

      I was given a jar of this by someone who said they were too sensitive for it. I love creams with vitamin C in it, and thought this one had a lovely scent. I didn't care much for the texture as it felt somewhat sticky as I applied it - it didn't seem to "melt" into my skin well. For the first several minutes after applying it, it seemed to leave a somewhat sticky residue - as though it might have sugar or honey in it. About 20 minutes after application, it did seem to absorb a bit more into my skin, but still left a hint more of a residual feeling than the face creams I normally use. I'm using it as a hand cream now because I like the scent.

      Comments about Aveeno Active Naturals Smart Essentials Nighttime Moisture Infusion with Vitamins A, C & E, 1.7 oz:

      Minus one star for the very strong, and not quite pleasant smell. I got used to it after a few days, and you may too.

      Product is very creamy and rich. A little goes a long way. I started using this nightly, and it quickly (in 2-3 days) cleared up a dry flaky patch on my right cheek that I'd been battling for weeks!

      I have sensitive skin, and have not experienced any irritation. This is a great winter moisturizer, though I really wish they'd make it unscented.

          Comments about Aveeno Active Naturals Smart Essentials Nighttime Moisture Infusion with Vitamins A, C & E, 1.7 oz:

          I am sad to say that this product did not benefit my skin. I so wanted to love this, and I am happy that it was able to work for others. I have been using shea butter and jojoba oil on my skin for about a year with fabulous results: blemish-free and lots of hydration. Many reviews have stated that this did not cause breakouts, but unfortunately for me, it did cause me to breakout in small, itchy red pimples around my eyes as well as heavily clog my pores in my t-zone. I can only attribute this product as the cause because it has been the only change to my normal routine. I listed the pros above. It truly does moisturize well without leaving my face oily and shiny, the smell was bearable. I would still recommend this product to others, because not everyone has reactive skin such as mine.

            I've used the most expensive department store brands and Aveeno is as good - - if not better for a fraction of the price. I also like the fact that it is paraben free.

                This is a nice gentle moisturizer. I have very dry skin, and this product definitely helps to soften my skin, which works for me because I have yet to find anything that truly imparts a lot of moisture into my skin. It is non irritating and leaves my skin smooth and soft.

                  I would not have bought this for myself after reading the reviews because I am quiet sensitive to fragrance, especially floral fragrances. I bought this for my teen daughter. I tried it and was surprised that it was not too offensive to me. I love how light it feels on my face. So, give it a try if the only reason you wouldn't is the reviews about the smell.

                  I use this product only a night after washing my face with another Aveeno cleanser product. I have combination skin with extreme dryness on my nose and cheeks but oily skin on my forehead and chin.

                  I believe this product is best right after washing/showering your skin because it will be the easiest time for your skin to absorb the moisturiser. It has a very strong fragrance so if you have allergies to fragrances you may not want to use this. I find that it keeps my skin moisturised all night without any tight or oily feeling on my combination skin.

                  Comments about Aveeno Active Naturals Smart Essentials Nighttime Moisture Infusion with Vitamins A, C & E, 1.7 oz:

                  I was looking for a night cream to help with my dry, dull skin during the winter months in NYC. I usually love Aveeno products so I thought I'd give this a try.

                  I've only been using it for a week. It is a good moisturizer but the fragrance is unnecessary and cloying. It's very floral and probably wouldn't be so offensive if I weren't applying it right to my face. Luckily I put it on and go right to sleep so I don't have to experience it for very long.

                  Ok product, will not repurchase.
