Review of Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion by Marguerite
Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion is a body lotion which is clinically proven to relieve dry skin. Its non-greasy formula contains natural colloidal oatmeal blended with rich emollients to moisturize skin for a full 24 hours. A preventive and a protectant, this nourishing lotion absorbs quickly, is noncomedogenic and contains no added fragrance. Of all the dermatologist-recommended Aveeno brand lotions out there, this is the one with the shortest list of ingredients which makes it gentle enough for me to use on my face as a night cream or to use as a base cream in my own night cream recipes. The natural oat fragrance is so subtle that it causes no sensitivities and does not clash with any fragrance I decide to wear. I sometimes mix my favourite Body Shop perfume oils (Vanilla and Satsuma) with this to make my own inexpensive perfumed body lotion, apply it immediately after towel-drying and wait a few minutes (because of the added oils) for it to soak in completely before dressing. It does a great job of keeping my skin soft and smooth and smelling wonderful. I usually buy the economical 18 oz pump bottle in a twin pack because I use so much of it in the cold months, but occasionally purchase the 8 oz tube which is great for travel. This lotion is a must-have for me and my favourite of all time for its versatility.
