My hands get dry, especially washing them so often, so I got a travel size bottle of this lotion to keep in my purse. When I'm home, I prefer a thicker hand cream, but I did like this Aveeno enough to get a full size to use as body lotion. Applied right after a shower, it keeps my skin from getting so itchy and raw. Also good for bikini area after shaving. Doesn't really smell like anything. It's a little sticky right after applying, but that goes away quickly. I did try this as a face moisturizer a few times in the dead of winter, and I didn't like the way it felt, but it did protect and didn't give me any bad reaction.
I use this on my face and body. I hate scented anything on my face and this has no scent which is perfect. This stops me from getting flakes and dry patches on my cheeks and temples by late afternoon when other moisturizers have evaporated. I find that this is a great hand cream too. I'm a chronic handwasher and I feel that this lotion protects my hands and keeps them from feeling chapped and raw. It is not greasy or slippery and I feel that it keeps my skin feeling supple and moisturized all day. I don't have dry skin on my body really so I don't need a super moisturizer for that but I do like to apply this after shaving and use it on my feet as well and it feels very smooth. I will re-purchase this product.
I've purchased this lotion to give aveeno a try. And I can't believe how GOOD it is.
1- It's fragrance free. I LOVE this fact. No matter how good the lotion is, you don't want to smell like it, I rather smell like my own perfume. :) Fragrance free also mean's no allergic reactions for my uber sensitive skin! No red bumps or skin color bumps anywhere.
2- It's lightweight. I apply at night after my shower and it absorbs quickly. It leaves my skin very well hydrated.
3- It's claims 24hs moisturized skin. I wouldn't say 24 hours but definitely more than 12hs. I've applied last night and my skin isn't dry yet, and it's noon. But it's definitely NOT super well moistured either. However, I never really use body lotion, so it looks better than without any.
4- It's the best hand moisturizer ever. It doesn't leave any residue and leaves my hands soft and well moisturized.
I usually get VERY dry legs and my legs itch a lot from the dryness. So far, I haven't experienced any itching in my legs. I'm very happy with results and I'll definitely buy again.
I haven't tried on my face but I have a feeling it would be an awesome face lotion as well.
My husband introduced me to this moisturizing lotion. I was a bit skeptical as I was used to using more expensive brands and didn't think it would work as well. I also didn't like that it didn't have a girly scent. But was I ever wrong. It's the best moisturizer I have ever used, especially for my FACE, yes that's right, I use it on my face every day. I find most moisturizers make my sensitive skin red, itchy and irritated and have even made my face peel in sections. This is the only one that doesn't do any of those things. I've recently started wearing tinted moisturizer and using a self tanner moisturizer for the face and I have to use this first underneath it to create a barrier and it works fantastic. I would encourage anyone (with sensitive skin especially) to try this!
My face (super oily, sensitive) had been dry and red for several days, thanks to a new overnight lotion I tried. I'd had a bottle of Aveeno under the bathroom sink and never really used it much because I thought it was boring. In desperation, I put it on my face one night and the next morning the skin on my face had done a complete turnaround. So, I started using it as my go-to body lotion and hand lotion, and I can't believe what I've been missing! It makes my elbows and heels smooth (nothing, NOTHING had worked before including Vasline, Aquaphor, cocoa butter), and they stay smooth throughout the day. Today, I pitched the hand lotion next to my kitchen sink and replaced with a new bottle of Aveeno. As I get older, I'm using fewer and fewer products, and I think it's because the products that are working best for me are those with the fewest ingredients.
Use this stuff on my dry & cracked elbows from my computer chair & in one day my elbows are so smooth! I've tried vaseline but it didn't stay smooth for a long time, with Aveeno I can miss 3 days & my elbows are still as smooth. I like to carry around the 71mL one in my purse for my hands, which makes them smooth to the touch. :)
i absolutely love this lotion. i have used it every single day for the past 10 years, and the few times when i'm travelling or when i run out, it's not a pretty day.
the lotion absorbs quickly and it's pretty much odorless. i use it as an all-over body lotion, and just a itty bitty drop as a facial moisturizer twice a day. it's amazing. i recommend it to all my friends!
I found the texture like silicone which I don't like. I do like the fact that this is nearly odorless--something hard to find in a lotion, but the odor it has is rubbery and somewhat smelly. This doesn't seem to absorb much. It's more like a plastic mask. I don't like this lotion at all.
I had a severe allergic reaction to some papaya. I was covered head to toe in an itchy rash. I was taking oatmeal baths and applying this lotion on my rash. It soothed the itch and dryness from my rash. It was gentle enough to use on highly irritated skin. It is a little to heavy for my everyday use, but for a bad skin condition it was wonderful.
my HG daily lotion. I have been using this every day for almost a year now. I use it all over my body and it leaves my skin soft and smooth with no oily/greasy residue and no scent at all. I am heavily tattooed and it brightens up dry skin over top of tattoos and makes my skin glow, especially in winter. LOVE this lotion.
