I want to share information about a treatment facial sunscreen from Neutrogena. Part of the Ageless Intensives line, Tone Correcting Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 helps brighten the complexion, improve skin tone and lighten age spots. The Vitamin C and Retinol SA complex renews and exfoliates the skin, while broad spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen protects against future damage.
I started using Tone Correcting Daily Moisturizer this past August. I began applying this product as part of my morning routine, every other day. The packaging notes: You may experience mild redness, a warm tingling sensation or flaking (skin exfoliation). These are normal, temporary indications that the formula is working.
I didn't detect any redness or flaking, but it did feel like my skin was humming for a few minutes after application. Even with sensitive skin, I wouldn't describe the feeling as painful. I was certainly aware of the Retinol SA at work for the first two weeks. The sensation experienced on the initial application will greatly lessen. My skin soon became accustomed to the formula and the tingling dissipated.
I really appreciate that I can easily wear Tone Correcting Daily Moisturizer under makeup. Before applying eye shadow, I smooth the moisturizer over my face and neck. In the time it takes to apply eye makeup, the formula has absorbed and I can add primer, concealer, and bronzer/blush.
Tone Correcting Daily Moisturizer improves the appearance of the skin. I have a couple of small age spots and minor freckling. The formula didn't erase these imperfections completely, but I did notice a subtle lightening.
Let's take a look at the components:

Neutrogena's patented Helioplex formula sunscreen is one of my favorites available. I have been using different lines from Neutrogena for years to protect my face and neck from sun damage. Their broad spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen is proven to shield six layers of skin for a strong degree of protection.
Vitamin C is included in the formula to help diminish spots and even the complexion. Retinol SA also works to reduce age spots along with the appearance of wrinkles. The Retinol SA formula penetrates the skin better than Pro-Retinol or Retinyl Palmitate. For those ladies who rely on the exfoliating effects of Vitamin A, this product is a drug store treasure.
I can recommend Tone Correcting Moisturizer SPF 30 for sun protection and as an effective skin treatment. I am currently using my second bottle and I will be purchasing more in the future.
The Neutrogena Ageless Defensives line can be purchased from neutrogena.com. I bought my bottle of Tone Correcting Moisture from my local CVS drugstore. The retail price is 18.99.
Happy painting, ladies!
