Review - Aveeno Active Naturals Daily Moisturising Lotion
Lately I have been religiously using their Daily Moisturising Lotion as I wanted a daily moisturiser that wasn't too overpowering to use constantly, especially after a day of spending time in the sun (with sunscreen of course!)
What this product claims: 'Contains natural oatmeal blended with rich emollients to moisturise your skin for a full 24 hours. The unique colloidal oatmeal formula of Aveeno also helps prevent and protect dry skin providing temporary relief of the scaling and chapping associated with dry skin. This naturally nourishing, nongreasy formula absorbs quickly, is noncomedogenic (won't clog pores) and contains no added fragrance. Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion leaves your skin soft, smooth and naturally healthy looking.'
I must say that this moisturiser rocks!! It's virtually fragrance free, is nice to apply, sinks in within seconds and feels so luxurious on the skin because it isn't thin or runny like some other lotions can be.
Also, this moisturiser lasts for hours and hours! I wholeheartedly agree with the 24 hour moisturisation claim that it gives. I usually apply this at night after showering and I can still feel the effects of it on my skin at least halfway through the next day. For someone who is normally an eczema sufferer and therefore needs a lot out of a moisturiser for my skin to feel good, this is just amazing to me. It stops my skin from ever feeling dry or tight and I haven't experienced any awful eczema itchiness at all since using this on a daily basis. Talk about a miracle worker!
I also love anything with a pump dispenser. It makes getting the product out so damn easy and for anyone who normally has slightly long fingernails like I do you don't want to be digging into tubs of moisturiser all the time as there's nothing more frustrating than all that product that gets stuck under your nails and has to be scraped out (maybe that's just a pet hate that I have).
I definitely recommend this moisturiser to anyone with sensitive and/or super dry skin.
Has anyone else used this moisturiser before and liked it as much as I do?
