Q: If I use this moisturizer daily in the mornings, can I use it by itself or do I need spf? If so, can I use any face spf or a face moisturizer with spf?

submitted by Lexi - 2 years ago
  • A: Hello there, you can use our moisturizers by themselves or with an SPF. We'd suggest trying out our Protect + Hydrate Sunscreen Broad Spectrum Face Lotion SPF 60! Thank you and let us know if you have any other questions.

    submitted byJohnson & Johnson - 2 years ago
    Brand expert
  • A: Hi Lexi! We recommend that everyone use SPF daily to protect their skin. It is completely up to you if you would like to use this and then apply SPF, or use a moisturizer with SPF in it. Hope this helps!

Q: Is this moisturizer safe to use under makeup and is this moisturizer for oily skin?

submitted by Mae - 7 years ago
  • A: I have very oily skin and I have used this lotion daily for years. Also, under my makeup and it does not add to the shine on my face. I do think it helps smooth my skin, I love this product!

    submitted bySlor10 - 7 years ago
  • A: Hi Mae, you can absolutely wear this moisturizer under makeup. We love recommending this moisturizer for oily skin. The oil-free formula doesn't add any extra shine, and the salicylic acid helps unblock pores.

Q: Can you use this moisturizer and the clear complexion cleanser at the same time.

submitted by Ariana - 4 years ago
  • A: You bet! If you find that your skin is getting irritated or dry, switch to using just one or other for a little bit and then slow re-introduce the other one. These are medicated products, so you may need to give your skin a little time to adjust.

I am 19 this was the first moisturizer I bought 12 years ago it is my longtime preferred daily/nightly product, although they changed the packaging a year or so ago I made sure the ingredients were the same because this has been the only product to keep my skin regulated. This is the perfect moisturizer in my opinion because it keeps my skin moisturized but not sticky and shiny. I will say that the product before the new package design seemed different in the texture aspect a bit, but they work the same because this is my ride or die moisturizer.

Used this product for years, and it was great. But since the change from “clear complexion” to “positively radiant clear complexion” the product changed drastically. I have sensitive skin, and the original formula for clear complexion (green capped) was the only product that didn’t make me breakout in acne and rashes; however the new formula (brown capped) now makes my face breakout like never before. Sadly it’s now time for me to find a facial moisturizer, not sure what I’ll go with, but I do know it won’t be Aveeno.

I have been used it for 6 years .It is such a thin light moisturizer. It goes on light and doesn't clog your pores creating acne and a massive amount of blackheads. There is no kind of scent so it is perfect for sensitive skin as well. I really recommend

I got the set that came with the cleanser and moisturizer. Love it it’s so gentle on the skin it’s not thick. It contains salicylic acid which I love in a product cause I do have acne. It’s fast absorbing and non greasy. It’s also hypoallergenic.

I have repurchased this for years! I moved abroad and couldn't find it and asked for it in every care package I could get. I love the scent and that it is not a particularly thick or light texture-- very easy to soak in! I wouldn't say it particularly cleared my skin but its a nice product to have in the routine with salicylic acid.

You cannot say new look same formula, but then change the formula. I knew immediately because it smells and feels different. It makes my skin itchy when I put it on and has caused me to breakout. Very sad that this product was changed.

Despise the new formula with its gritty texture

1 out of 5 stars

originally posted on aveeno.com
I absolutely despise this new formulation of Aveeno Clear Complexion. Obviously Aveeno combined their original Clear Complexion Moisturizer with their Positively Radiant Moisturizer and this hideous abomination is what came out. The gritty texture hurts my o well sensitive skin, and something in the new formulary made me break out in acne instead of controlling it! Aveeno, you need to get your act together and go back to the original formula. I’m foregoing any further purchases of Aveeno products because you cannot be trusted.

The new product is absolutely terrible. It is beyond oily, caused my face to break out, and like others have said, its super gritty. The old product is the only lotion that has ever worked for my sensitive, acne prone skin. Whoever thought it was a good idea to change this formula should be fired

I have been using Aveeno’s daily clear complexion moisturizer with salicylic acid for over a decade. I am so frustrated that I no longer can. This is not just a “New Look!” bottle, it is also now a different and poor quality product. Very heavy and gritty. It looks and feels awful. Until I see a return to the previous, original formula, I will be avoiding aveeno products that don’t seem above the trend of skimpflation.

I’ve been using the Clear Complexion Daily Moisturizer for yearsss and this new formula doesn’t compare! It’s greasy, breaks me out, clumpy… i had to return it and i wont be buying again unless the old one is brought back. Until then i’ll find another brand. The team that decided having only Positively Radiant products should be fired. To the actual consumers it’s a no brainer!
