As promised in one of my earlier posts, here is my comprehensive review of Aveeno’s Targeted Tone Corrector. It’s a part of Aveeno’s Positively Radiant line of products, which I really look forward to trying after the wonderful results I’ve achieved with this tone corrector! It’s been a month since I started using it twice a day, and I’m happy to inform you all that I am #RadiantWithAVEENO! My experience with this product couldn’t have been any better, and I will be sharing my thoughts with you guys today.
I received this product about a month ago, complementary from Influenster for testing purposes . I’m so glad they chose me as one of the lucky 1000 lucky Influensters to test it, because I have some acne scars that need attention. My skin is medium brown, and my scars unfortunately shine through! In the past, I have used harsher, more expensive products in an attempt to diminish discoloration and scars, but it just didn’t work. All I got was irritated skin that made my scars more noticeable. Although my skin isn’t particularly sensitive, it does react badly when I come across a bad product.
Hydroquinone is a main offender in many skin-lightening/tone-correcting products. It’s the active ingredient that many companies incorporate in to their products to aid with scar lightening, but it’s not the safest and most effective active ingredient.
Aveeno took on a different approach; their tone corrector utilizes the natural benefits of Soy and Vitamin A to help you achieve smoother, clearer skin. Aveeno is known for making gentle yet effective products, and this one is no exception! They managed to create an awesome product that is gentle on the skin yet produces results in as little as 2 weeks! As a matter of fact, I noticed smoother, lighter skin in just 1.5 weeks! Overall, my skin is more radiant and even toned, because the product spread out to the skin around my scars, and not the scars alone. I really love that my skin looks so flawless, now. In the picture below, you can see how bright my complexion appears, and how smooth my skin looks. This is unheard of for me when it comes to tone-correcting. After a month of use, I am proud to say that my most stubborn acne scar is almost unnoticeable! I haven’t had any bad reactions. The formula is gentle enough for sensitive skin, so you should give it a try if other tone-correctors have aggravated your skin.
This product has such a fresh, clean smell; and a little goes a long way! The texture is velvety smooth and it applies seamlessly on skin. There is nothing to dislike about this tone corrector. It is effective, safe, smells nice, and comes in a slim tube for easy storage! I no longer fear acne scars, because I know I’ve got just the right product to fix them in no time.
