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.

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

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.

Wish it didn't have a fragrance

Pros

  • Moisturizes Well
  • Softens Skin

Cons

  • Bad Smell

Best Uses

  • Bedtime
  • Winter Dryness

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.

    I am 51 years old and spend a lot of time outside with horses. Those fine lines are getting a little deeper. I have using this product for a month and am seeing a significant different in the number of lines . Love the texture and smell. If only I had started using it earlier.

        I was looking for Vitamin A-C-E cream for a while and was delighted to find it again.

        This cream is seeing me into my old age with a (relatively) wrinkle-free face.

          I put this on at night before going to bed. The next day, my pores are either smaller or gone. The only thing is that it can feel a little greasy at times especially on hot summer nights.

              I break out when a breeze blows too strong, so anti-breakout moisturizers dry me out, while anti-aging moisturizers break me out. Aveeno's Active Naturals line seemed to be working for me, so I gave this a go...IT'S GOLD!!! Not only does this stuff moisturize, it smells delicious, and my breakouts are a thing of the past. Stock up, because this stuff sells for almost twice as much in national chain-drugstores.

                I had read some reviews about this product where someone said it turned their skin yellow and that the perfume in it is too strong.
                I have been using this product for a few weeks now and my skin has NOT turned yellow. The fragrance is pleasant, and doesn't linger.
                My skin tends to break out and I was a bit wary of using this product for that reason, but so far my skin feels smooth and healthy. If you live in a very humid climate, then you might want to avoid creamy products of you tend to break out.
