Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion & Hand Cream Review
I recently received these goodies from AVEENO_UK on twitter for review, so, here it is:
DAILY MOISTURISING LOTION
I have really dry skin and was quite looking forward to trying this as most products don't seem to work. The claim on the tube is that it leaves skin moisturised for "24 hours" and the skin will be left looking "soft, smooth and healthy" after just 2 weeks!
There is very little smell from this lotion which i quite liked as i'm a great lover of perfume and i could use this cream daily without having a 'clash of smells.'
After initial application, my skin did look more moisturised and it soaked in really well so there was no stickiness....which i usually find a problem with other products. I continued using this for 2 weeks to see if there was any change in the condition of my skin and found that although my legs still had some slight dry patches, there was definately and imporovement particularly on the rest of my body where the skin isn't quite so dry.
Overall, i would recommend this to people who don't suffer from extremely dry skin, but it is good if the dryness isn't too severe.
I have tried many hand creams to help combat the dryness caused by general daily chores like washing dishes (and you lot thought i did nowt!), and have become rather sceptical as to whether anything actually works....that is until i tried this!!
The cream has a lovely texture and absorbs very quickly leaving just a thin protective layer over the skin. Even after washing dishes etc, i could still feel the cream working its magic and my hands felt touchably soft and smooth....RESULT!!! Once again, there was no stickiness and the effect was immediately noticable after just the first use.
Strongly recommended if your hands are looking/feeling a little worse for wear, and best of all, if you start using this now, they'll be lovely and smooth just in time for summer!
