I really like this lotion. It has to most amazing consistency--it's so creamy (as the name implies), and it absorbs almost instantly, no greasy feel. Considering I hate the typical lotion greasiness so much that I often struggle keeping up with it in my routine, it's really nice to have a lotion in my cabinet that doesn't frustrate me when I want to use it.
For me, the lotion does last all day. I don't have very particularly dry skin to start with, though, so if you struggle with dryness or ashiness I can't say how well it will work for you.
I have a love-hate relationship with the scent, though. It's a subtle warm scent that reminds me of a light white musk or sweet milk. Sometimes I love it and it's comforting, other times I want something more complicated that doesn't remind me of a baby smell.
As for the packaging, it's pretty typical. I love two things in particular about it, though: 1, a pump (no messy cap, yay!) and 2, the bottle has a matte finish. That sounds totally unimportant, but to me it makes the difference between the bottle looking cheap or luxurious.
I'm sorry but I just DO NOT get the hype about Aveeno products. Everyone seems to rave about them and go on about how marvellous they are, and how moisturising they are and how utterly wonderful they are. Well, they ARENT!. This product in particular does NOTHING for my dry, winter skin - NADA! It kinda smells nice when I put it on and thats it. It sinks in and then 5 minutes later my skin/hands are just as dry as they were before I put it on. I agree with the reviewer below that I may as well just use water for all the good this does. The problem is, its way too light to do any serious moisturising. I notice they make a fanfare on the packaging about "colloidal oatmeal" but the results I get from this cream are completely non-existent. I honestly believe that the people who rave about this product probably have very very slightly dry skin that needs the absolute minimal amount of moisture to feel better. For those of us with extremely dry, tight, prickly winter skin this product is completely pointless. The *only* positive thing I can find about this product is that it smells of almonds which reminds me of cherry bakewell tart. That's pretty much it. I will stick with my unrefined shea butter - its thick, VERY moisturising (the moisture lasts for days) and cheap. It doesnt smell like cherry bakewell tart unfortunately, but at least it does what its supposed to.
Favourite Aveeno lotion! I love the smell - not too strong and does not linger - and feels amazing on my skin. I find the other lotions do not absorb well and feel greasy. This does not in the slightest. It's very relaxing lotion, especially at night, the scent and texture help put me at ease. I have not tried it during the winter, so I will see how the lotion is against the harsh Canadian winters. The packaging is horrible, but that is the same for all Aveeno products (here's hopping they'll change it).
LOVE THIS! The smell is fantastic and it moisturizes really well!!! Febrile enough to use on my little one:) great product!
Bought this for my mom and she loves it. The consistency is good, not as greasy as vegetable oil, but more like a lotion with rich oils. Moisturizing ability is decent. I only took a lippie off because the almond smell is quite strong.
i have bought this product twice already and it has become my most favorite lotion. i like this stuff because of the thin, lightweight, yet very moisturizing formula that absorbs like a dream and makes skin soft and hydrated without feeling greasy. and the smell is absolutely heavenly, a light almond-y scent that is very subtle. i use this product out of the shower, after shaving, which other lotions can irritate my freshly shaven skin, or any time i'm feeling dry. try this if you have given up on other lotions that have left you wanting more. amazing price point as well, easily available at target and ulta.
My favorite lotion. My son and my husband are using the daily moisturizer green bottle. Very light but very moisturizing. My second favorite is the lavender in a lavender pump bottle(my teen daughter love it). Always Aveeno in my house all 3 kinds that I mention.
I can't even express how much I love this lotion. First of all it smells sooo good! Like maraschino cherries and miss Dior combined. However the scent only lingers for a couple of hours. The lotion is light and moisturizing without being greasy. As far as lotions go, it ticks all my boxes :)
Love love love! It ticks all my boxes for a lotion: comes in a pump, easy to spread around, smells great and leaves my skin soft. Already stocked up on several bottles!
I bought this a couple of days ago and just had to review. This oil/lotion is amazing. Don't be afraid of the word oil in the title it it more of a lotion. It is medium thick and super creamy. It makes my skin feel so good. I used dove before this and it soaked in fairly quickly but the aveeno soaked in even faster. I was shocked. It makes my skin feel so soft and the smell is heavenly. Kind of almondy/ oat mealy like Johnson's baby lotion. My skin stays soft for more than 24 hours. It doesnt bother my very sensitive skin.
Now I live in Oklahoma so it doesn't get real cold here but it's cold enough. The temps don't go below 0 very often but they do stay in the teens twentys and thirtys. This lotion moisturizes my skin very well. I do have to agree with some of the other reviews this probably won't moisturize real well in very cold climates. I probably won't use it in the summer because well I don't use lotion in the summer and summers here are f*cking hot. Using lotion in the summer makes me feel greasy, oily and just ewwww. I use other aveeno products for my hands and face and I have to say I am in love with aveeno. Aveeno please don't stop making the products I use.
