Aveeno Positively Radiant Intensive Night Cream - Review

April 23, 2013

Today I have a review of the Aveeno Intensive Night Cream. I've never thought of using a night cream until I tried this one. I've used moisturizers but some were too heavy and greasy for an overnight use. Aveeno is always my go-to skin care products because I know how gentle yet effective they are for my skin. I have more dry and sensitive skin so Aveeno is my favorite. See how I liked this night cream in my review below!

More information on this night cream from the Aveeno website:
Brighten and even skin tone with AVEENO® POSITIVELY RADIANT® Intensive Night Cream. Formulated with ACTIVE NATURALS® Total Soy Complex and vitamin B3, this advanced night cream leaves skin smooth and healthy looking. This oil-free night cream will help keep you looking fresh and luminous. 

I'm going to break down this review to make it a bit easier. Let me know how you like it:
Smell - Very fresh, light, and clean.

Application - Right when I applied it to my face, I immediately noticed how light the cream is. I've tried other creams that have been way too thick and take forever to absorb. This took less than 3 minutes to fully absorb and just make your skin feel soft and non greasy. I really liked how little of the product you need as well. A little goes a long way once you rub it in. I made sure to take the cream down to my neck which made it feel more hydrated.

In the morning - Once I woke up my skin felt more soft and even looked hydrated. I've had problems like peeling skin around my nose and forehead from being so dry. I haven't had those problems since using this cream every night. Once I was ready to apply my makeup, I felt like I didn't need an extra moisturizer since my skin was so nice. Of course I used an sunscreen with SPF like usual though for protection from the sun.

Would I recommend? If you are looking for a hydrating night cream, then yes! For people with oily skin, I would think this would still work for you since it is a very light cream and not thick and heavy. For those with dry skin, this will definitely work for you. 

Aveeno Positively Radiant Intensive Night Cream retails for $16.99 and can be found at drugstores or where Aveeno is sold. 

I hope this review was helpful!

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. All opinions are honest and my own.


  1. Seems like a really good cream for dry skin! I'm trying to get my skin to calm down, since I have an oily t-zone, and the rest of my skin is dry.

  2. I don't wear night cream and it's about time to start using one! Thanks for the review. :)

  3. This is such a great review!
