Aveeno Positively Radiant - Influenster Product Review

**all items received free from Influenster for review/testing purposes

It's been just over a month since the Aveeno Positively Radiant VoxBox arrived at my doorstep and it's time to share my thoughts.  Let's see if how well I got #RadiantWithAVEENO !
I normally applied this twice a day, nearly every day (although I could have been a bit more consistent).  The directions say to apply to dark spots and areas of uneven tone.  Since I do have acne scarring in some ways over the majority of my face, I squeezed out about a 1/2 inch length of product on my finger and applied it starting on my cheeks (most damage) and then what was left onto my forehead and chin.  During the day, I followed up with a moisturizer/SPF of 30; at night I didn't feel the need to add any more moisture.
Actually, when looking at the before and after pictures like this, I do see a decent amount of improvement.  Pictures are a much better way to notice changes than just memory and going on what I see in person since I zero in on every flaw and seem to magnify them in my head.
~only editing is to correct exposure~
I loved the smell - or should I say lack of scent, the texture (almost gel-like), how it was the perfect amount of moisture to make my skin feel comfortable after cleansing.  And, very important for sensitive/breakout prone skin, I did not have any breakouts due to this product!  I also liked that the tube is a generous 1.1 fl. oz., so with consistent use (and to cover essentially my entire face), one tube lasts approximately 1 month.

Overall, I was hoping for even better results than what I saw.  BUT I am willing to purchase the Tone Corrector as well as a few other products in the line and give it even more time.  I think that using multiple products from the line would enhance the results of the Positively Radiant line rather than one product by itself.  Given the amount of damage that my skin has, more than just one month is needed to see this product and/or line perform to the best of its capability.

For a full lineup of Aveeno products, check out their site at  Aveeno products are easily available at most stores that sell skincare.  I believe I spotted this for around $17 at KMart (Walmart didn't have it on shelves at that time).
