#AveenoSkincareSecrets | Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion Review ❤

Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion

Hi Lovelies!
Hope you are all doing really well? I'm posting a little later in the week than I was hoping, but between one thing and another my week got in the way. However, I'm back with a review of the fantastic  Aveeno Moisturising Lotion! and before I get started I wanted to say a huge thanks to my lovely blogger buddy Sophia Meola who kindly tagged me in her post. It's no secret that I'm a total skincare junkie, but sometimes body care isn't my niche! However, I've been trying out the Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion and I have to say it's fantastic and a true hidden gem in the skincare/body care world. I hope you enjoy this review lovelies and I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments section below. You can also use my social media icons if you would like to get a quicker response.

Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion 300ml £7.14
Aveeno is a brand I have heard of before, but haven't really explored.. so I was excited to learn more about the brand itself. Aveeno began back in 1945 with two brothers Sidney and Albert Musher. They firmly believed that century-old remedies held the promise and real answers to human wellness. Since their humble beginnings there has been over 50 years of clinical evidence showing that formulations containing colloidal oatmeal hold some of the most promising results in skincare.

These days a lot of products these days are pretty snazzy looking and highly perfumed. Even though I do like like a product with a little pazas.. I also really appreciate more stripped back products that really concentrate on the good stuff. The lotion itself contains colloidal oatmeal, which is the star ingredient and has been clinically proven to significantly improve the condition of dry skin from the first day of use. I knew oats were good.. but my god I never realised they were this good! The benefits of oats in skincare include:

Increased Hydration - Oats helps to restore the skin's natural barrier helping to prevent water loss and maintain moisture
Soothes - Oatmeal is known for its soothing benefits on sensitive skin types
Cleanses - The oat particles adhere to dirt and dead skin cells allowing them to be washed away
Protects - Oatmeal creates a protective film on the surface of the skin, whilst helping the skin to return back to normal pH levels. 

I've been using the Daily Moisturising Lotion religiously after showering and I've been truly amazed at how effortless this has made moisturising. I can be a little hit and miss with my body care, as I find a lot of products take ages to absorb and that really puts me off. However, this product vanishes within a few minutes which means I can get dressed nice and quickly and relax for the night, or get ready quicker in the day. I've also found recently that I've become sensitive to random fragrances, so having this in my collection is amazing as it's completely fragrance free. Another thing I love about this product is that it has a gel/cream texture, which is my absolute favourite. I find that these kind of textures absorb super quick and make your skin feel instantly hydrated, so if you're like me and like those kind of textures then you will love this! The packaging on this product is quite simplistic but hey sometimes the best things in life don't come all singing and dancing. I do like the fact that you get so much product a whopping 300ml for just £7.14 will keep you going for a long time. I thought I would also share some of my skincare secrets below :)
Cucumber, Lemon & Mint - These three ingredients are fantastic for SO many reasons, but I love to infuse them individually or together in water. #detox

Mist Yourself - There is nothing I love more than using a Mist to re-hydrate my complexion. You feel instantly uplifted and the minerals also work wonders to soothe your skin.

Exfoliate - Whilst working in skincare I learnt that you shed up to 40,000 skin cells every hour and almost a billion are shed within a 24 hour period (Yikes). Exfoliating 2-3 times a week is essential to keep your skin looking radiant :)
I think for just £7.14 the Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion is a real staple product that would be suitable for pretty much everyone. It's simple but very effective and you know it will last you for absolutley ages. I can see this product being a real go to product for me and for the price I don't think you can go wrong. It may not be the most glamorous looking or smelling, but it does the job and that's definitley what is most important!

I hope you've enjoyed this review lovelies and I would love to hear from you in the comments section below. I'm also entering the Cosmo Blog Awards this year and it would mean the absolute world if you voted me for 'Best In Beauty' :)

Lots of Love



  1. Looks like a great product and reasonably priced too. I prefer skincare products with more natural ingredients as opposed to heavily fragranced stuff. I always see Aveeno skincare products everywhere, but never buy them! I want to now!


    1. I agree Tara :) Always good to have natural ingredients. This is truly fab, I just can't get over how fast it absorbs X

  2. This sounds fab! I'm the same and tend to forget body care - but this sounds brilliant! xx

    1. Oh really! That's great .. glad it helped you :) x

  4. I'm always looking for good moisturizers. Never tried this brand before x

    1. It's fab! Used it tonight and it's so hassle free :)
