Review: Aveeno Skin relief moisturising lotion

Aveeno skin relief lotion

5 Stars (5 / 5)

Do you know that scaly skin that some people have in their legs when their skin is so dry? I have that. Or more like, I had that. I have a very dry skin, especially in the winter when it’s cold. My skin becomes so dry and it’s often itchy. My skin is also prone to eczema so I’m always looking for a good moisturizer.

My weight loss history

My weight loss history

I was a skinny child so this is not one of those stories that starts with ”I was always overweight”. My parents were – and still are – very slim so I can’t blame the genes either. And I’ve never really been what would be called obese, I just got a bit chubby around my mid-twenties and it’s been very difficult trying to lose that weight.
