I started using this after a knee surgery, because I needed something that wasn't heavily fragranced and would combat the very dry skin I got from all the nasty medications I was on. This stuff is fantastic! Skin looks and feels great! I also massaged it into my surgery scar and see it healing much faster than my other surgery scars have in the past. I love this stuff! The only "con" is that it's hard to get to the last inch or so of the lotion, as the pump can't reach it all. But I love it and it's so worth the extra couple of bucks over the cheaper brands.

This lotion put a stop on my static shock problem due to dry skin. It's unscented and it's absorb by the skin pretty quick. I never went out with a sticky skin with this lotion within a week gave me great results. I tried using Gold Bond ultimate skin therapy lotion but I don't feel any great changes in my skin and it's way too sticky.

i never really understood what people meant by "sitting on top of the skin" until i used this lotion. i would rub it on my dry arms on a dry night, then wake up in the middle of the night scratching my skin through a thick layer of rubbery grease. it was as if it didn't get into the skin at all, and my skin just remained dry and itchy under it. shame because i really love the moisturizing oil (pink) and the original lotion (green) by Aveeno. their formulas are so different...

This lotion has done a great job of getting me through the cold winter here in the East. While this lotion is intended for very dry and itchy skin I dont really have dry skin at all. During the fall I started getting very itchy skin and it only got worse in the winter. I was torn between getting the regular Aveeno lotion that also has great reivews and this one, I eventually ended up getting this one and I couldnt be happier.I put this on after I shower and also in the morning while getting ready. I really apperciate that this is fragarance free since it doesnt compete with my perfume. My skin feels alot better and soothed after I use this it sinks in fairly quicky and doesnt leave any flimy feeling. I also get really dry hands during the winter time that tend to crack and peel and this really helps keep them hydrated. This is a daily staple that I can't reconmend enougth.

I have the squeeze bottle of this and have been mostly using it on my hands. My skin this winter has been drier than usual and my knuckles even started to crack and bleed :/ this brings my hands instant relief with a nice cooling effect and keeps them comfortable for hours. Thank you so much aveeno you and the body shop lotions never let me down (:

This review is for the Aveeno Active Naturals Skin Relief Moisturizing Lotion Fragrance Free version. I have this in the tube version so it's easier for traveling. I love this lotion. It soothes my itchy dry skin without stinging or burning like other lotions and creams for itchy skin. It sinks in fairly quickly without being sticky even in the summer and leaves my skin feeling soft and moisturized for more than a day. It's thicker and creamier than usual lotions and being fragrance free means that I can use it all over without triggering fragrance-induced headaches.

I have found this to be the best moisturizer for itchy skin! The oatmeal in it really works to calm down the itch. I have purchased this over and over. I think Aveeno's products are really great quality. I live in Las Vegas, and it's great to have this lotion. Sometimes if I have bad allergies, and my face gets itchy, I will apply this to my face. I have never had any problems with breaking out when using this as a face lotion. I cannot live without this stuff here in the desert! Highly recommend.

I went to my dermatologist to get a rash looked at and she sent me home with a sample of this lotion, and an oral medication. I found her really annoying vowed to never go back to her again. Then I used this on my rash only to have soothing sigh of relief that I nearly melted. I went straight to Ulta and picked up 3 bottles, one from home, one for office, and one for travel. I love how this spreads and doesnt leave streaks on the legs, really soothes dry skin, it doesnt moisturize like I imagined, but its not sticky or drying, its very inbetween, so this can be a HG for summertime. In summary, this is a great non-eczema body lotion, of course, if you have eczema you will need steroid based eczema prescription.

Its incredibly confusing to buy aveeno, there are alot of lotions by them, with slight difference, if you are wondering the same thing, here is the breakdown of their offerings
---Moisturizing Cream Oil > for normal skin > that want a really light moisturizing lotion with a fully-absorbed matte finish. This smells amazing! and the cleaniest feeling in the aveeno line. however on me, I have to reapply this more often than not. If you are breakout prone or cannot stand the sticky feeling from a lotion, this is truly the cleanest moisture.
---Daily Moisturizing Lotion > for normal skin > provides moisture with oatmeal formula and dimenticone. Absorbs quickly but leaves a satin finish (not like cream oil), and also offers spf 15. SPF 15 is not the same texture as the regular version. The SPF 15 lotion leaves white streaks since its sunscreen. I actually like the regular version better.
---Skin Relief Moisturizing Lotion > Dry to Extra Dry Skin > This also has dimethicone to stop the irritation combined with oatmeal. This is longer lasting on the body than cream oil or daily lotion. This is probably the best tetxure out of all aveeno lotions because it provides a very soft supple finish without the greasiness. Very multipurpose: Thick enough to moisturize hands, but thin enough to provide slip to spread on body. I like this alot.
---Skin Relief Moisturizing Lotion with Menthol > Dry to Extra Dry > this treats as above but with menthol, which is soothing but in the long run not recommended since menthol is an irritant. I actually didnt like the smell of this, but hey if you want some temporary relief, knock yourself out. I know how annoying itchiness is. The large size is being discontinued, but I think you can still find this in the smaller size.
---Eczema Therapy Cream > already Comprimsed skin > this has oatmeal 1%. This has a thicker base than Skin Relief lotion so this is sits on the skin. Of course, cream will always be thicker than lotion. This has no steroid so it will not treat your eczema, only protect the skin's natural barrier.
---Anti-Itch Concentrated Lotion > already Comprised skin > itch relieve with medicication for non-eczema, weepy rashes and skin irritations. THis contains calamime, camphor and pramoxine. Works great as a spot treatment to serious itching. Works better than hydrocortisone.

Aveeno Skin Relief Moisturizing Lotion with Soothing Oat essence...Hmm ... I've read about Aveeno being one among the few brands that has excellent skincare products for Sensitive skin, Dry skin ,Eczema skincare and of course Baby care ... And I also have heard about Oats ' natural power of moisturizing... A combination of Aveeno and Oats ,Good . I wanted to give this a shot on my daughter's very dry ,eczema - prone skin ..

The very first thing is , it moisturizes pretty good and controls the itchiness ... but NOT EXCELLENT , in the sense , of wintery , very dry skin ...

If her eczema flares - up , I can't apply this lotion wherever it's flaky or scaly ...( usually behind the knees , neck and arms ) ..But I apply it everywhere else on her body .. It works Okay ...( I use either hydrocortisone or Elidel ( Rx ) on the eczema prone skin...)

This lotion could be perfect for Dry - Very Dry skin WITHOUT Eczema ...So I've bought Aveeno's Eczema Therapy Moisturizing Cream for her ...It can go all over her body ...

I like this lotion in the pump form ...But the pump won't go all the way down ..I can see a lot of products , about 1 1/2 fl oz Out of 12 fl oz , settling down there and u can't pump to get it out. So I just open the lid and squeeze it on to my hands and apply it...
