Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion

A few weeks ago I was introduced to Aveeno which is a natural and organic skincare brand that caters for people with sensitive and dry skin. Recently, I've been using Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion (A$12.99/354ml; A$9.99/225ml) which aims to intensively moisturise, relieve and protect dry, chapped and windburned skin. Daily Moisturising Lotion is dermatologist recommended and formulated with natural colloidal oatmeal to nourish the skin. 

Aveeno - 'The natural properties of colloidal oatmeal (oatmeal that is milled to an ultra fine powder) are known for their ability to hold in moisture and relieve dry, sensitive skin. AVEENO® uses the whole kernel finely ground to retain the value of its entire composition. Natural proteins form a protective barrier from external elements locking in moisture for healthy, soft, hydrated skin.'

Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion is housed in a sturdy bottle with a pump to hygienically and easily dispense the product. Despite being fragrance free, upon very close inspection of the lotion, the lotion evokes quite a subtle sweet sugary scent. I would assume the scent is derived from one of the core ingredients. I could only sense the sweet notes while smelling the lotion right up close to my nose. The sweet scent reminds me of marzipan and almond cake! I actually really like this scent, though after applying the lotion to my body I could no longer sense the sweet scent.

Daily Moisturising lotion feels very moisturising, it's lightweight and absorbs quickly. Although the lotion absorbs quickly, I feel as if the lotion locks in the added moisture to my skin to hydrate and nourish for hours afterwards. The lotion is very gentle to my skin and my skin feels comfortable after lathering the lotion onto my skin. My skin feels soft and smooth without feeling greasy at all. The bottle is also huge, so I'm sure that this bottle will last me through the next few months.

Have you used Aveeno skin care products before?

  1. I've never heard of this brand before but I am really tempted to try out this lotion

    1. They have a wide range of skin and body care products in their line, so definitely worth checking out!

  2. I absolutely swear by Aveeno body lotions and hand creams. My doctor recommended their body lotion to me last winter when I was suffering with hyper-sensitive and dry skin. What can I say? It worked! xo

    1. That's great news! I'm so glad I came across Aveeno as their formulas are incredibly gentle on my sensitive skin.
