Aveeno Skin Relief Moisturising Lotion

Melbourne weather is quite peculiar – one minute it’s boiling hot and the next it’s pouring down rain. I was dreading going into work this morning, it was raining non stop since early morning and I just don’t like getting wet (but who does anyway?). I ended up going to work and my shoes got soaked. The worst feeling ever, wet feet!! Anyway today, I will be reviewing Aveeno’s Skin Relief Moisturising Lotion. This lotion retails for $12.99 for a 354ml bottle. I’ve been using this moisturiser for about a month now.

According to Aveeno “the triple oat complex offers instant relief from itchiness associated with dryness and moisturises for 24 hours to provide long-lasting protection from skin dehydration. Ideal for use on chaffed, chapped or cracked skin, the new fragrance-free formula is gentle enough for sensitive skin. The lotion is rich and fast absorbing and offers instant relief from itchiness and dryness“.

What I like about this moisturiser:

  • Fragrance free – I prefer body lotion to have no scent
  • Kept my skin moisturised
  • Good for people with sensitive skin
  • Great price

While using this I have not experienced any dryness or itchy skin. I did find that it made my skin feel slightly sticky but nothing too bad. Overall, this moisturiser is pretty good and price is quite reasonable too. Available at pharmacies and Priceline nationwide

What’s your favourite moisturiser?

    I love Aveeno! I think the oatmeal base can sometimes make it a little sticky, however since its so effective in stopping itchiness I think that part can be overlooked.
    Thanks for the helpful review!

      I didn’t think about the oatmeal base causing the stickiness but i mean it’s no big deal.

    I love this review! I don’t have dry skin, except for one spot on my cheek, and I was actually looking at this cream for that exact issue!

      Lucky you Caroline! My elbows and knees are so dry it cracks, so disgusting. I have to moisturise everyday.

      Hey Chantel, yes they do! Only really discovered them at the end of last year but so far everything I’ve tried, I love.

    I’ve been using Aveeno moisturisers for about two years now- they are my favourite!
    And I DEFINITELY agree with you on Melbourne’s bipolar weather! We can seriously have four seasons in a day sometimes ._.

      Hi Ivy, I know how crazy is our weather?? I’m still half way through my first bottle but definitely would be buying a replacement.

    I think I need to get on to this Aveeno business! Hate the itchy legs, they have been getting worse because ive hidden them under opaque tights in the last couple of cold days.
