Review: Aveeno Skin relief moisturising lotion

Aveeno skin relief lotion

(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.

I think I found out about Aveeno Skin relief moisturising lotion on another website some years ago when I was looking for recommendations on a body lotion for a dry skin. I heard this one being recommended even by doctors for people with eczema or sensitive skin. I’ve been hooked since.

Aveeno Skin relief moisturising lotion comes in two sizes: 200 ml tube and 300 ml pump bottle. This is my favorite body lotion. There’s so much to love and absolutely nothing that I would change about it.

The good

If I should describe Aveeno Skin relief moisturising lotion with just one word I think I would call it pleasant or comfortable. Or soothing. The texture is just the right balance of rich yet light. Your skin will absorb it very easily and it won’t leave your skin greasy or sticky at all. I often use it on my face as well after a shower. It feels like it’s kind to skin.

Aveeno promises that the moisturizer “relieves the skin for 24 hours” and that’s how it feels when you have a very dry skin. It is very soothing. I really notice the difference in just a few weeks after using the product.

I even like the smell of it! This moisturizer is fragrance free and to me it smells really nice, light and clean. Not all will like it but maybe they can overlook the smell and notice all the great things it does to your skin. You can use this moisturizer on babies and children as well and it’s also very affordable, at least in Europe.

The bad

I’ve heard that some people with eczema have also benefited from this product and have actually got rid of it or at least their symptoms are gone or are not as bad as before. I have had some eczema in my fingers for almost 10 years but unfortunately I have not noticed that this product would have helped me with that. I’m still searching for that perfect moisturizer for my hands.


I cannot recommend this product enough for people with dry and sensitive skin. I know it’s tough to always look for better moisturizers – give this one a go, it’s very inexpensive and you just might not have to keep looking anymore.


This is a very favorable review, but I love reading reviews myself and I am happy to spread the word if I find something worth sharing with you.
