My Opinion:
I know that it's officially Summer, because my foundation won't stay put, is meltting and sliding all over the place, and during summer I usually stick with either BB creams or mineral foundations, but for this year, my skin is unusually dry and I wanted to try a tinted moisturizer (even though I've never liked it).

I've decided to give Aveeno's tinted moisturizer a try because I've really liked the Aveeno Clear Complexion Daily Moisturizer, but sadly this tinted moisturizer didn't work for me, initially the shade was slightly too dark, but since I do get darker in the summer, I thought that it might work later. However as the day progresses I've noticed that this product oxidizes pretty badly and there was no way that I'll use it again.

Update 22nd September 2013:
I've really tanned this summer, so recently I got this out again to try, although it's still slightly too dark for me, I was able to pull thru.

As a tinted moisturizer the coverage was pretty good, but even on top of a oil control primer, it left my T zone really oily after about 2 hours.

  1. These are nice tips for skin. This is so true that in the summer we should take more care about skin. Aim for about 32 ounces a day. It’s also a great way to flush out toxins.
