Rated 1 out of 5 It smells horrible & is too dark for me
I got your fair to light, but it was still too dark. But that didn't really matter, because the smell was too horrible to be able to withstand wearing it, anyway. I put it on one cheek & had to wash it off immediately. I still can't get the smell off of my face after washing my face. It should be FRAGRANCE FREE. Also, please make a lighter shade. I can't even rate it in other ways, because I couldn't stand to wear it in the first place. Smells like cheap cologne.

Rated 1 out of 5 it didn't help my complexion at all
I love aveeno, and use an aveeno lotion for my body, so I thought this product would be great for my face. I was wrong. It leaves my skin feeling greasy, and when combined with my several-times-an-hour hot flashes, well... yuck! I don't recommend it for those of a "certain age" who have issues with mild to severe hot flashes.

Rated 4 out of 5��by EBG Great for everyday use
I was looking for something to replace a tinted moisturizer of another brand that changed its formula and was ineffective and watery. This has been great for me. I do have to apply a mineral powder to set it right after application. I have rather oily skin so additional applications of powder are sometimes required later in the day. It blends well with my skin tone and I can use acne medication underneath for problem spots when they pop up.

Rated 5 out of 5��by Lilly A sensitive skin must have!
Typically I am not the review writing type, but I felt like I should share my experience with this product. I was VERY hesitant to try the whole BB cream craze. Why the heck would I want to slather a thick cream on my extremely sensitive, yet oily and breakout prone skin!? Needless to say, I am hooked. While I was super skeptical at first, this product definitely gets an A from me. Its provides mild, natural looking coverage without looking cakey, orange, or thick. I have an inflamed blood vessel on right cheek and it totally evens out my complexion, leaving a pretty, clean-looking, healthy glow!
I would highly recommend this product to anyone out there with troubled skin and uneven complexion. It has replaced a slew of beauty products in my makeup bag and leaves me feeling fresh faced and confident!! I've tried Mary Kay powders and foundations, Bare Minerals, Physicians Formula, and many others--only to have my face oftentimes breakout MORE from my makeup. So far, this has not been the case with Aveeno, my skin has remained mostly breakout free and looks better than it has in a while! Thank you Aveeno for making products that are effective and gentle at the same time :)

I love this BB cream! I have sensitive/oily skin and I've always been nervous to try foundation or BB creams in fear they would make me break out. I've been using this product for about a month and my skin is radiant! It's the perfect shade for my skin tone (fair) and the perfect consistency. I apply it with a foundation brush or my fingers. It looks great either way. Since my skin is oily I apply Neutrogena Skin Clearing mineral powder with MicroClear technology after and it keeps my skin shine free all day.

Rated 2 out of 5 Made me look sickly
I'm one of those pale freckly types with pink undertones and naturally pink cheeks and lips. Because I'm so fair, it's pretty tricky to match my skin with tinted moisturizers/bb creams/whathaveya. This is a shame, because it's the pale freckly people that are most prone to skin cancer and need a daily sunscreen the most.
This stuff is kind of a mixed bag. It's thick, but absorbs fairly well. Still, I felt like it caused me to break out in the areas where I'm more prone to sweat/get oily. I kind of expected that, though, and I figured it was a fair trade for decent sun protection during my long days hiking around a college campus in subtropical summer weather.
But... then there's the look of it. I didn't notice this in the weird light of my bathroom, but it turns me kind of... yellow? It's tanner than the swatch on the box when it comes out and, although it doesn't provide really thick coverage the way a makeup would, it still does color your skin a little. When I looked in the car mirror after using it, I was a little alarmed. My skin had this yellowish sheen to it. It made my normally healthy complexion look sickly and even seemed to amplify some of my imperfections.
No. Freaking. Bueno.
If you don't have my kind of complexion, you may like it. Still, I wouldn't recommend this to anyone without olive/yellow tones to their skin.

Rated 4 out of 5��by Jenna Light Coverage and Shimmer
This product gets 4 stars, only because it does contain fragrance. Otherwise, I would give it 5 stars. I love the shimmer, which is just enough to give you a healthy looking glow. It will give your *cleaned* skin a very nice, lightly airbrushed look. Putting any cream/makeup over dirty skin will only cause more acne problems. It will also make your coverage look too thick. I've never had a bad bottle, but if you get one that appears "greasy" or "oily" like the other comments, I suggest you take it back to the store. Maybe it got overheated in shipping? This product is *not* oily, not in any of the bottles I've had. The box even says "oil-free." I use this product to get moisturized skin, while getting light coverage over my contact dermatitis.
