I would recommend this to anyone in a heartbeat, but if I knew someone who had skin like mine I'd buy them their first bottle!

The skin on my face is super-sensitive: I have mild rosacea, sometimes get zits AND dry patches, plus am prone to eczema. Even if I just splash water on my face (no soap) I need to moisturise right away, else my face quickly feels like the Sahara desert...

In the past I have tried face creams by Clinique, Olay, Elizabeth Arden, Eucerin* Redness Relief, Chanel, various drugstore brands, Burt's Bees... the list goes on - but although these brands moisturised well, they made my rosacea flare up.

Aveeno Ultra-Calming is the only moisturiser I have found that calms my skin, minimises outbreaks of rosacea and other blemishes. It was recommended by my dermatologist who gave me a sample to try 2.5 years ago.

I've bought this face cream ever since and wouldn't use anything else. With other creams I have to use my Rx steroid cream every week; with Aveeno Ultra-Calming it's more like once a month.

Worth adding that I travel overseas a lot and sometimes am forced to use other face creams. So, I have intermittently used something other than AU-C on my face over the past 2.5 years, and I am always SO GLAD to get back to AU-C, because I know that within a week of my skin will be looking and feeling much better.

Bottom line: this cream not only helps my skin calm down, but keeps it calmer for longer. People generally think I have good skin and am usually shocked when I laugh and say "Oh no I don't!"

= Mild Cons - surely outweighed by the Huge Pros! =

The smell is a slightly medicinal floral smell. A bit odd, but it's not unpleasant. If your skin is anything like mine it's nice to have a product that doesn't smell like 'nothing' or full medicinal. Now I just associate it with relief!

The consistency sometimes feels a bit grainy, but it absorbs fairly quickly and evenly.

I do wish it had a higher SPF for my fair skin than SPF15. Other Aveeno face creams have SPF30 but I notice that these others make me break out - I guess that's the SPF ingredient, which is why I think of this as a 'mild' con.

Sometimes the pump doesn't 'inhale' the cream when you have about 1/3 bottle left. Instead of banging the bottle upside down into the palm of your hand to get the cream out, try tapping the (closed) bottle right side up on a hard surface. This seems to distribute the cream more evenly in the bottle so it can get get pulled up again by the pump.

Yeah, I wish it were cheaper, but it's worth every penny.

* I recommended Eucerin's Calming Creme for moisturising the rest of your body.

Having super-sensitive skin and having had good luck with the Aveeno Positively Radiant moisturizer, I wanted to like this and had planned it as a replacement to my Olay Sensitive until the original Olay Sensitive formulation is back on the market in April. Unfortunately I'll keep looking. Simply put, Aveeno Ultra Calming was awful. It burned my sensitive skin going on , and the fragrance is too strong for sensitive skin users. My skin turned bright red, burned and stung, and I had to wash the product off immediately. In fact, with 3 types of alcohol, a chemical sunscreen known to be irritating to sensitive skin, and a prominent fragrance, this product should NOT be labeled for sensitive skin. Had I read the ingredients before purchase instead of just relying on the claims on the label and in the ads, I would never have purchased it. After one use, I gave the rest of the bottle to my sister who fortunately has less sensitive skin than I.

This is a Great Moisturizer for Rosacea Sufferers

Pros

  • Absorbs Quickly
  • Goes On Smoothly
  • Long Lasting
  • Moisturizes Well
  • Softens Skin

Cons

  • Can Sting Eyes When Sweating
  • Too Fragrant

Best Uses

  • After Shower/Bath
  • Rosacea

Comments about Aveeno Daily Moisturizer, Ultra-Calming, SPF 15, 4 fl oz:

There are few facial moisturizers I can use that do not aggravate my rosacea. Aveeno Ultra-Calming is a godsend to me. It smooths and hydrates my skin without irritating it. Moreover, I find that it helps reduce redness. If I don't apply it after, say, a shower, my skin will tighten and dry quickly.

I think some trial & error is required to find the best treatment for rosacea for a person. For me, it is using Eucerin Redness Relief Cleanser (another excellent product), Eucerin Redness Relief Night Creme, and Aveeno Ultra-Calming Lotion after bathing.

      Ive purchased literally dozens of bottles of this sunscreen. I vow to use only chemical-free but then I keep coming back to this one. Its one of the few calming sunscreens/products out there that really work.

        This works well in reducing redness, but the smell is too strong. I am sensitive to fragrance and have gone back to the unscented SPF 15 lotion.

          I have dry, sensitive skin and mild rosacea. I have not noticed any "calming" effect on my skin, but this is my favorite daily moisturizing sunscreen for my face. I especially like how thick the cream is; it never runs; it's easy to apply evenly.

              This was more like sunscreen than moisturizer. It's heavy like sunscreen. I actually have some facial sunscreen from Aveeno and it is the same exact consistancy and smell. For a daily moisturizer I am looking for something smoother and lighter.

                I use every morning on face and throat after showering. Great basic moisturizer with some SPF. I've been using for years and am very satisfied--more so than other moisturizers at this price point or even at higher price points. My 2 teens (boy and girl) both use it daily too. They find it does not aggravate acne. Also helps with my daughters mild roseacea. We prefer the Ultracalming version to the regular, but both are great.
