I am a member of the Aveeno Discoverers Programme, so I am lucky enough to be sent products from time to time to try and give honest feedback on!
The latest product I have been sent for review is their Skin Relief Moisturising Lotion. In the winter in particular, I suffer terribly with very dry and often sore skin. My legs in particular often look as if I would be better suited to a mermaids tail due to their scaly appearance! Anyone who has suffered such dry skin knows, that moisturisers can be terribly sore to apply, so I approached this with caution!
Unfragranced, i gained a little confidence after applying a tiny amount to my hands without reaction. I applied liberally to my arms and legs, which was a mistake as the consistency is a little thinner than other aveeno products, so it took around a minute to absorb – but it DID absorb!!! Instantly I noticed my skin start to approve in appearance, almost as though my skin was ‘drinking’ the lotion!! I applied the product in the evening, and in the morning i observed that still my skin looked better than after application of my usual moisturiser – it still looked moisturised!
I have been using the lotion for almost 3 weeks now, and am delighted to say that my scaley legs are a thing of the past! I apply the lotion every evening before bed, and my skin is soft and looks healthy all day, without the need to continuely reapply! Sore skin feels like a thing of the past!
The main active ingredients are Shea Butter, Triple Oat complex – Oat Oil, Oatmeal and Oat Essence.
