Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion

If it’s good enough for Jennifer Aniston, it’s going to be good enough for me, right?

I was sent a full size bottle, as a sample, to try. All I had to do was to answer a few questions about my opinions on the product.

So what did I think?

Overall, I liked this product. It is just the right consistency for me; not too watery, but not so thick that it doesn’t absorb into the skin. In fact, it looks like the lotion hasn’t actually rubbed in well, as my skin had a moist sheen to it, however, I can confirm that it had, and there was no transfer onto clothes, furniture or bedding!

It kept my legs, which get particularly dry as they are exposed to the elements when I am out running, feeling smooth and soft all day.

As with most products, there were a couple of niggles.

The fragrance was a bit insipid. This is good if you like to wear a completely different perfume to the scent of the lotion that you are using, but on days when I forgot to spray myself, I felt a little lost without anything nice to smell.

Secondly, I really don’t like pump dispensers, especially with a lotion that cannot be watered down when it starts to run out. It’s not like soap, or shower gel, where you can unscrew the bottle, add some water, and get to all of the remaining product. No, Aveeno had packaged their moisturising lotion in a way that makes it awkward to empty the bottle. The shape of the pump is curved, so it has to be propped up to give the remnants any chance of making it to the neck of the bottle. There was quite a lot left by the time that the pump stopped drawing up the lotion, and I was still able to get a good week or so from the bottle before I was forced to give up on it.

That aside, it moisturises really well, and made a big improvement on the appearance of my skin, and so I would, despite the little grumbles, use this product again.

 

Note: I was given the sample for free, but this is not a sponsored post. The opinions are very much my own.
