[Review] Aveeno Active Naturals Skin Relief Moisturizing Lotion (Fragrance Free)

Hi everyone! Doing a bit of a different review today…skincare, but it’s a body lotion this time. Sorry for being MIA…it happens a lot, because I get pretty busy sometimes…I try to stay on top of things, but it can be pretty difficult sometimes. Well…onto the review!

This is my HG body lotion…I’ve been using it for about 3 years now, and I have to say that I love it. There have been moments where I tried other ones, but I always come back to this one.

This claims to “[relieve] itchy, extra dry skin [and] moisturizes for 24 hours”. That last half is a pretty big claim, I know. Nothing that ever says it moisturizes or keeps your skin oil-free or whatnot for x number of hours actually ever does it…at least, in my experience.

As you can see from this picture, you can get a pretty big bottle of this stuff…532 mL, according to the label in the picture. This stuff will last you a pretty long time, too, which is nice.

Alright, so this is a plain white lotion, not too thick and not too thin. I love the pump because it’s so easy to control how much product you get, although it can get a little messy sometimes. True to the label, it is fragrance free, so it’d be perfect for those of you who are sensitive to fragrances.

It does leave a slight film behind after, but it also immediately itchy, super dry skin, which is nice. This is definitely a winter moisturizer, although I use it all-year round.

This really does moisturize and keep your skin soft…it’s great. If I use this at night, I wake up with nice and soft skin (Depending on how dry it was the night before, of course), which is nice.

It’s also suitable for sensitive skin…in fact, it’s a great moisturizer for sensitive skin. I’d say that it suits pretty every every skin type.

It’s also a great hand cream. Whenever my hands get really dry (To the point of being scaly, cracked and sometimes even bleeding), I just use this every night…3 nights later, they’re almost back to normal, and I can just continue to use my regular hand cream.

This doesn’t keep skin moisturized for 24 hours…I’d say it’s more like 12, which I still think is pretty good.

All in all, though this doesn’t seem like anything too special, I still love it. Personal opinion, I guess.

Pros:

  • Comes with a lot
  • Good consistency
  • Fragrance free
  • Immediately relieves itchy, dry skin
  • Moisturizes skin, keeps it soft
  • Good for sensitive skin

Cons:

  • Doesn’t moisturize for 24 hours
  • Pump can get messy
  • Leaves a slight film

Overall rating: 9.5/10

Would I repurchase? Yes!

I already have a few times, and I can definitely see myself buying this again in the future. I absolutely love this moisturizer…like I said in the beginning of this post, this is my HG lotion, the one I come back to time and time again. I like to experiment with new products, but when I find ones I truly love, I’ll stick with them. This is one of those few products.
