Today’s review is on Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion.I had not tried any products from the Aveeno range previously but had heard good things about the brand and their products.That’s why I decided to try this lotion & surprisingly I quite liked it a lot.So, without wasting much time let’s get into the details of the product.
Price: INR 850 for 354ml.
Aveeno Daily Moisturizing lotion is clinically proven to improve the health of dry skin in 1 day with significant improvement in 2 weeks. Formulated with ACTIVE NATURALS® Colloidal Oatmeal and rich emollients, it helps prevent and protect dry skin for a full 24 hours. This lotion leaves your skin feeling soft, smooth and naturally healthy looking and is gentle enough for everyday use. It’s also fragrance-free, non-greasy and non-comedogenic.
About the Active Ingredient:
Active Naturals® Colloidal Oatmeal can serve as a skin protectant. It has the ability to attract moisture to the skin and to form a protective barrier. The AVEENO® brand is most trusted for its use of natural ingredients. Oat is the natural ingredient most recommended by dermatologists. As a skin protectant active ingredient, oatmeal can help restore skin’s normal pH and aid in the maintenance of skin’s moisture barrier to help prevent and protect dry skin.
The Aveeno lotion is packaged in a bottle with pump, which I find more hygienic to use than a jar. The bottle is huge. I can use it daily for about 5 or 6 months before I run out.
I had not tried any products from the Aveeno range previously but had heard good things about the brand and their products. The lotion is fragrance-free and claims to be dermatologist approved and clinically proven to relieve dry skin; it contains colloidal oatmeal and claims to keep skin moisturised for 24 hours. I found this moisturising lotion to be a great all-rounder. It is easy to spread over the skin and readily absorbed without leaving any greasy residue or stickiness on the skin and does leave skin soft, hydrated and well moisturised.
I applied Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion every day when I got out of the shower. I used it all over my body, concentrating on my knees and elbows, which tend to get extra dry. And it’s probably the best basic body lotion I’ve used. After one week, my dry skin was almost completely smooth and my knees and elbows were a lot less itchy. That’s probably thanks to ingredients such as dimethicone and glycerin, which are really good moisturizers, and colloidal oatmeal, which is one of dermatologists’ favorite ingredients for soothing skin.I liked how the lotion felt both lightweight and creamy at the same time — but I especially loved how it absorbed quickly so I could get dressed and out the door fast.
It doesn’t have a very sticky texture. Some heavy-duty lotions still feel sticky on my skin even if it’s already been more than 5 minutes after application. This does not. I wouldn’t say that it sinks into the skin immediately, but my skin feels soft and supple, instead of greasy, by the time I’ve finished my beauty routine. It’s gentle to my skin. This did not cause any irritations or reactions at all.
This body lotion is very moisturising. It comes out very thick which is always a good sign that is it rich. It made my skin feel really beautiful and soft.Actually, it does what it promises to do, which is to relieve my extra dry skin and keep it feeling moisturized for most of the day. It’s really more moisturizing that most drugstore lotions that I’ve tried, and I find that I only have to reapply at night, or for especially dry spots like elbows, etc,
Overall this is a fantastic moisturiser which represents excellent value. I would definitely re-purchase this product.
