Hello! How does a week just fly by so quickly? It’s #SkincareFridays again! Planned anything exciting for the weekend? 😉
Today I will be sharing a very old favourite of mine. My beloved Aveeno body moisturising lotion 🙂 Like most people with slightly drier skin on the body, I tend to get more dry patches during winter and at change of seasons (NOW!).
I used to prefer using baby oil on my skin or body butters, but even those don’t lock enough moisture into my skin. I had to find something moisturising, nourishing and not so perfumed.
Enters Aveeno….(Official product description)
Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion Combines the concentrated goodness of finely milled naturally active colloidal oatmeal with rich emollients.
Clinically proven formula goes beyond 24 hour moisturisation to replenish the skin?s natural barrier function Significantly improves the condition of dry skin in just 2 weeks. Absorbs quickly and leaves skin looking and feeling soft, smooth and healthy.
Aveeno has a wide range of products, such as oil creams, body wash etc but I have not tried them and therefore cannot recommend or review them here yet.
Aveeno – This body lotion is not highly scented, although it does have some kind of a smell. It is not detectable after applying onto skin. While I do enjoy a lovely fragrance, there are times you just have to be kinder to your skin and spare it from unnecessary additives and chemicals.
This product is not all natural kinda product. It contains silicone just like other body lotion.
The product itself is not rich and actually feels very light. My skin absorbs it fairly quickly and in reasonable time. It could be my thirsty skin Some body creams are heavier and you need to rub and then wait for it to sink in.
It doesn’t feel sticky and it leaves my skin feeling soft and moisturised. Although I cannot guarantee it will give you 24 hours moisture (as I believe it depend on your skin type!). I can safely say that it works for me, I don’t see dry patches and it makes my skin feel comfortably moisturised. Reliable product.
Price: Normally around £5.50 for 200ml, currently on 1/3 off offer £3.66 for 200ml at Superdrug stores and online
Availability: all major drugstores/chemists such as Boots and Superdrug
Overall Summary: 5/5 from me
Would I repurchase this? Yes, probably for the rest of my life! haha
It doesn’t leave you smelling sweet so if that’s what you are looking for then this is not for you 🙂
Ah honourable mention, Palm’s cocoa moisturising body lotion is pretty fab too and it smells nice 😉
Also E45 is great if you have more sensitive skin! Big thumbs up for E45!
