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.

          My skin is not sensitive type, but after using other expensive brand cream, I had troubles to restore the balance back. This cream helped so much! It moisturizers really well. After each application skin feels like it got more pores opened up to breeze! Love the feel of this cream! And with the price like that, bits all expensive brand creams.

              This is a moderately-heavyweight cream that is very impressive for a drugstore brand. I've had creams twice this cost that weren't as gentle, didn't smell as nice (very clean-smelling, not over the top) & weren't as moisturizing. I have fairly dry skin, that is dry in the T-zone & normal in the cheeks (I know, the opposite of most people, but it's true). It's wonderful for the dry parts. It's a tad heavy, leaving my skin a bit oily in the cheeks the next morning. Normally, my skin isn't oily at all in the morning. But for the level of hydration, the lack of breaking me out & the price, I'm happy. And a little goes a long way with this, too.

                I've used Avon, Olay, Neutrogena, Ponds moisturizer before but this is the best so far. I also feel comfortable with the fact that this has more natural ingredients and the best thing about this is it's not greasy! i love it!
