Doing Drugstore: Aveeno Active Naturals Continuous Radiance Moisturizing Lotion

Aveeno Active Naturals Continuous Radiance Moisturizing Lotion ($11.19) came out a couple of months ago, and I finally got around to trying it over the weekend. What attracted me to the product was the cool little device on the top, which allows you to customize your self-tanning color. Also, it has a gradual color-enhancer feature so that you build your tan up over a couple of days, as opposed to applying one deep shot of unnatural looking color.

I find a lot of self-tanners to be either sticky feeling or very drying on my skin, but that wasn't the case with this lotion. Made from soy and chicory extract, Aveeno Continuous Radiance was far more moisturizing than most other products I've tried. For the other pros and cons,

I also found that this lotion absorbed very quickly, and since its oil-free, it's also great to use on your face. Overall, I was very pleased with this product.

What's holding me back from giving it a fantastic rating, however, is that it did turn me a tad orange, and looking orange is one of my biggest pet peeves when it comes to self-tanners. If you've tried it, please leave a comment and let me know what you think.

I found this product to be quite streaky.

This left my splotchy and more orange than any of the other lotions I've tried. I was not a fan. I do like the gradual color concept, but it just didn't deliver.

Aw, that stinks that you liked the product, yet it turned you orange! I was thinking about getting this product this weekend, but I instead I guess I'll try that Dove self-tanner everyone's talking about. Thanks for the review!

I love aveeno too (although I will skip on this product)! I just got some jergens gradual tanning face lotion (can't remember the exact name) but it has spf 20 in it...problem is it smells like self tanner (pretty strongly) and I haven't noticed a huge difference...

I love Aveeno products, but I think I'll pass on this one.

Turned me orange, turned me blotchy, not gradual at all, not recommended! =[

I've been thinking about trying this, but now I'm worried about the orangeness...I really do like Aveeno though.
