Aveeno Positively Radiant Targeted Tone Corrector from Influenster

I received Aveeno Positively Radiant Targeted Tone Corrector free from Influenster in a VoxBox for my review.   So thank you for allowing me to try this product.

First of all this is the first product that I have tried from Aveeno.  I don't know why I haven't since there's a lot of hype about Aveeno products in magazines and on TV commercials with the gorgeous Jennifer Aniston who has beautiful skin and hair.  She's one of my favorite actresses.  So I was curious to see about this product.

Reading through the information on the box and on the tube here's some things it has and it claims:
* contains Vitamin A
* helps fade the look of dark spots and uneven skin tone
* instantly reveals softer, smoother, more radiant skin
* non-irritating
* claims that it has clinically proven to fade the look of dark spots and uneven tone just after 2 weeks
* gentle formula that combines ACTIVE NATURALS Total Soy Complex - one of natures most effective dark spot and uneven tone fighters - with Vitamin A.

I'm in my 50's and don't have age spots on my skin.  I don't deal with a lot of uneven skin tone that much.  Like some people have dark circles under their eyes or redness around their nose or cheeks, so I wasn't sure if this particular product would work for me.  I do tend to get freckles on my face in the summer time but the past few summers have been limiting my time in the sun.  From what I could tell it did help settle down some of the freckles.  I did start to experience some tingling and irritation from it because my skin on my face is sensitive.  Also I'm not a big fan of soy.  There's too much talk about soy and have found out that most soy anymore is genetically modified (GMO) so I question the effectiveness soy really has.

If I go to the drugstore and have a desire to try more Aveeno products I think I'll try something that will better suit me like a moisturizer and a facial cleanser/scrub.  And as for Jennifer Aniston, I still love her, and I'll try some other products from Aveeno!
