Even though, I am a skin-care junkie and always find the time to DIY…I am not really a moisturizer person, merely for the fact that my skin produces 10 times more oil when layer it on, I just do not like the feel of it on my skin! However, after going through various reviews about the Aveeno Daily moisturizing lotion, I decided to give it a go! I started using it on my face and body, because my skin decided to revolt against me in the form of dry patches! Aveeno being a trusted skin care brand, I knew there was nothing that I should be fretting away from, and one of the major reasons why I laid my hands on this baby, was OATMEAL as the key ingredient!

A little about Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion : Helps prevent and temporarily protects chafed, chapped, cracked or wind burned skin. Helps prevent and protect from the drying effects of wind and cold weather. Unlike ordinary lotions, contains natural oatmeal blended with rich emollients to moisturize your skin for a full 24 hours. The unique oatmeal formula also helps prevent and protect dry skin, providing temporary relief of the scaling and chapping associated with dry skin. This naturally nourishing non-greasy formula absorbs quickly, is non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores) and contains no added fragrance.
My review of the Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion
To get started with, this body lotion is packed in a huge opaque white bottle, with a pump dispenser, which releases the right amount of product! Also, it allows you to lock the pump when you are done using, to avoid further spillage! The ingredient list is mentioned at the back of the bottles, which makes it even better, as you know must know what going on your face and body; and never ever turn a blind eye to it! The packaging is sturdy, but definitely not travel-friendly, unless you are able to find a travel-size bottle of it! I haven’t found mine yet!
The lotion does not really have a lotion like consistency, as it is pretty thick! With thick, I do not mean as thick as body butters but definitely not as light-weight and liquid-y as body lotions (if you get my point!) It feels more like a rich body cream, which is great for people with dry skin issues! I love how this lotion does not leave an oily residue like other lotions; it dries up quickly, making the skin look extremely soft and supple!
I have been using it for over two months now, and I have definitely noticed a great change in the way my skin looks and feels! The best part is that you do not need to re-apply it every few hours, to seal the moisture in! Put it on once, and you are good to go for the rest of the day/night! Coming down to the odor, it is completely fragrance-free, which is one good trait, as I like my skin-care to be odor-less, gives me a feeling of going Au-natural’!
I never ever skip using this product before I hit the sack, and it has made a huge difference and help me get rid of dry patches! Also, having used it on my face, I have never noticed any breakouts or irritation! It absorbs well into the skin and heals dry patches while enhancing the texture of the skin! It does leave the skin looking super-hydrated!
Mommy Verdict: I really want to stress on the fact that this daily moisturizing lotion has been my greatest find in years! Even though, I have tried different (trusted) brands, I never really found anything that has managed to work so well! The product lives up to all its claims and the presence of oatmeal makes me love it even more! I am a huge fan of products with oatmeal, because, over the years, oatmeal has helped me solve various skin problems, so if any product has oatmeal content in it, I’M SOLD! 😀 If I were to point out any downsides of the product, I would say that it lacks anti-oxidants (they are essential for the skin) and SPF (to give the sun a tough-time)! But other than that, it is a great product to own! It is ideal for people with dry and sensitive skin!
