Tinted moisturizer is in my top five beauty essentials. I love shortcuts, multi-tasking and in particular double-duty skin care and makeup products, and tinted moisturizer falls right into that list. One product that moisturizes, adds a touch of color, evens my skin and provides SPF is exactly what I need on a daily basis. (At least when I am in the public light.)
I have tested many, many tinted moisturizers, and of course I have my favorites. So, when I try a new one, it must hold up to pretty high standards. I was recently sent Aveeno Positively Ageless Correcting Tinted Moistuirzer in Light to Medium to try.
Here are the details about Aveeno Positively Ageless Correcting Tinted Moisturizer $19.99:
Reveal the natural beauty and youthful energy everyday with POSITIVELY AGELESS® Correcting Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 30. Formulated with ACTIVE NATURALS® Natural Shiitake Complex and vitamin C, this daily moisturizer hydrates and nourishes your skin to help visibly reduce the look of fine lines and skin discolorations.

Since I am a tinted moisturizer fanatic, I had a long list of “must-have” results from my Aveeno Positively Ageless Correcting Tinted Moisturizer in light-medium.
1. Must moisturize.
Positively Ageless moisturized my skin sufficiently, and dried to a non-oily finish. Since I’m in my 50s, I prefer feeling extra “moist”, but since I wear moisturizer under this tinted moisturizer on a daily basis, it works out just right.
2. Must provide sheer coverage.
I was sent a light/medium which I thought would be too light for me, as I generally use a medium/dark. My overly particular eye thought the light was too light, but to everyone else the color was a match. (I probably was nervous about my brown skin matching a light/medium!)
3. Must minimize imperfection.
I found that my pores were minimized, but my discoloration was not corrected. I think this is a benefit that comes after a period of using this tinted moisturizer, so I will address this again. Probably a deeper tone would have helped with the skin discoloration as well.
Overall, my skin looked great—smooth, clear, and natural. The SPF 30 is the icing on the cake.
Pros: moisturizes, high SPF, color correcting, skin treatment ingredients
Cons: No colors for brown skin
Buy Again: No, if there was a deeper shade range, yes.
Packaging: 4 Blings — Love the pump
Overall: 4 Blings — if there was a shade that truly matched my skin it would be a 5 Bling product
