I think this is a great lotion for moisturizing your body. I don't recommend using this on the face however. It has made me feel greasy (face) and I don't like the greasy feeling it leaves behind on my hands but otherwise, it's not bad at all!
This is a great, fragrance-free moisturizer. It absorbs quickly and doesn't leave me feeling greasy, which is incredibly important. Sometimes my legs get itchy after I shave them, and using this lotion really helps stop the itching.
I used this lotion all the time, but last year, I wanted to try something new, and switched to several brands. I found a leftover bottle of Aveeno in my closet, and after using it again, boy, I'm back for good! It moisturizes my dry legs all day long! When I get home, my legs are still soft. With other lotions, my legs felt like sandpaper by the end of the day. I also like that it's fragrance free because I don't like scented lotions. I've started using the body wash, which is nice for the rest of my body.
Seems like most of the reviewers who don't like this product 1) don't like the feeling that it doesn't sink into the skin; or 2) don't like the scent. I happen to love both these things. This is a great body moisturizer for fall/winter for those with normal skin, and year-round for drier skin areas. I like that it's "unscented" (I prefer to make the scent statement with perfume instead of body lotion) and while I can see how the natural oatmeal scent can turn some people off, I'm a big fan ... seems to scream 'natural goodness' to me. This product is NOT one that leaves zero trace of the lotion on your skin. You won't see anything, but you'll definitely feel the moisture of the product on your body for the next full 24 hours. This feeling isn't for everyone, but I love it because I feel soft, hydrated and protected for the entire day after application, unlike most lotions whose effects seem to be forgotten a few hours later. The effect is like prolonging the fresh-out-of-the-shower moist-skin feel for an entire day. I would suggest using this product right after showering - the skin seems to take in the product better when it's moist, and I think the "stickiness/filminess" that some complain about is exacerbated if used on dry/unprepared skin rather than on still-damp-from-shower skin. Well-priced product, particularly if purchased at Costco. My only gripe is I wish someone would invent a pump applicator that avoids that little lump of dried lotion collecting overnight on the applicator tip.
Serves the purpose of a moisturizer, I found that it absorbs quickly and doesn't leave a greasy feel towards your skin. However, not a big fan of the smell(minus lippie). My boyfriend loves it though~
I really wanted this product to be great...it's made by Aveeno (great company), it contains oatmeal (supposedly great for the skin), etc. Unfortunately, it's going back. I put it on and it took longer than I expected for it to absorb into my skin. The worst part was that it feels like this lotion never actually sets into the skin; rather it just forms a sticky, greasy layer over my skin that never absorbs and feels gross to the touch. The one thing I did like about it is the fact that it's fragrance-free, so it won't clash with any other product you may use that is already fragranced. Also, what I liked about the packaging is the pump, which is really convenient. But, the sticky film it leaves on my skin is just bad. Bye-bye to this one.
This product is phenomenol. Only body lotion I've purchased over and over again. Will keep my skin hydrated completely and I've even used it on my face with no breakouts and it instantly takes away all the flakes without a greasy feeling. A wonderful lotion.
I bought this after I fell in love with the Creamy Moisturizing Oil. Was hoping all Aveeno lotions have similar textures - absorbing instantly without any greasy or sticky feeling, important when you're living in a very humid place and hate to feel sticky. Unfortunately, this doesn't work or feel like the Oil. It's a thicker lotion that felt a little like sunscreen going on. I got the fragrance free version which actually smells like cardboard. The main thing is it just sat on my skin and didn't absorb. It might be better for someone with drier skin in a drier climate. Now I have a whole large pump bottle to deal with. UPDATE : I tried this again using much less lotion and while it took all night to sink in it was better and not as sticky. The strnage fragrance does bother me though, it almost is smelly.
I dont know how this product can get bad reviews! Its the best for my dry skin in the winter. I noticed once my hand was so dry it turned red and moving my hand in any direction really hurt because the dryness was so much. I put aveeno on and the dryness was gone instantly and the pain subsided in half hour. Miracle product!
i use it mainly as a hand cream. excellent! my problem cuticles have improved so much! sinks in pretty ok, tho it takes a minute or so. i also like the smell, it's light and non-invasive. def repurchase!
