Beauty Review: Aveeno Smart Essentials Daily Nourishing Moisturizer

I've been using Aveeno daytime face lotions & other Aveeno products for a long time now.  I really love the company & the fact that they use 'Active Naturals', as I've said before I am up for anything that is a little more natural.  Aveeno really makes so many great products, many of which I have tried (aren't you shocked?).  I used to use their Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer, & was very happy with it, but a few years ago they rolled out their Smart Essentials line, which intrigued me.  At this time, I looked into the products & decided to try the Smart Essentials Daily Nourishing Moisturizer ($16.99 on in place of the Positively Radiant one.  My #1 favorite thing about both moisturizers is that they have SPF 30, I am a sunscreen fanatic due to my very fair coloring & family history of skin cancer, plus I don't want early wrinkles!  I was interested in switching lotions because of all the antioxidants (Vitamins A, C, & E) & the Active Naturals formula with southernwood in the new product.  Of these ingredients their website says "it is proven to help skin retain moisture, leaving it soft, smooth and healthy looking", & I can attest that it does all of these things.  From the day I switched I never looked back because it is such an amazing face cream.  It makes my skin 'glow-y' when I put it on, & helps to keep it super moisturized, another great property is that it has a very pleasant scent that is non irritating (& my skin & nose are VERY sensitive to scents).  The website also mentions that the amazing moisturizer is "oil free, hypoallergenic and noncomedogenic", all big positives in my book.  I love this so much that I even got my sister turned on to it!  If you are looking for a new daytime cream or running low on the one you always use, I would without a question recommend picking up this one.
