Aveeno Skin Relief Moisturising Lotion review

The latest body product I have been using is the Aveeno Skin Relief Moisturising Lotion. This is a moisturiser that is great for the body to relieve sensitive, itchy, dry skin or sun exposed skin - dermatologist recommended.

Straight up this product is great! It works really well and leaves the skin feeling moisturised, soft and smooth. This product has a cooling feeling when applied for a few seconds and absorbs in to the skin quickly. It is also fragrance free which I like.

The bottle says: Rich, yet fast absorbing, this hydrating lotion, starts to work immediately to nourish and restore essential moisture to extra dry or sensitive skin so that it looks and feels healthier. Clinically shown to help relieve itchy, extra dry skin. Moisturises for a full 24 hours to provide lasting protection against skin dehydration. Gentle enough for dry skin, sensitive skin.

One of the ingredients this product has is a triple oat complex - the benefits of this are:

Relieves dry skin:
The natural colloidal oatmeal formulas of Aveeno moisturise and help protect skin.
Soothes scratchy, irritated skin
Colloidal oatmeal provides temporary skin protection and when used in a bath treatment it can relieve minor itching and irritation due to rashes, poison ivy/oak/sumac, and insect bites.
Soothes extra dry, aggravated, cracked skin
Colloidal oatmeal combined with menthol, shea butter and other skin protectants has been clinically proven to relieve aggravated, extra dry, and cracked skin.
Moisturises skin
Oat proteins leave a protective barrier on the skin, which prevents water loss to help maintain moisture.

It really does do what it says it will, it moisturises the skin and leaves it feeling smooth and soft. This is great as a sun relief too as it reduces the redness and itchiness. This is a great product that I recommend everyone should own. It retails for $12.95 and is a 345ml bottle.

Have you tried any Aveeno products?
