Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Body Lotion
Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Body Lotion with Soothing Oat and Rich Emollients to Nourish Dry Skin, Gentle & Fragrance-Free Lotion is Non-Greasy & Non-Comedogenic,
I thought Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Body Lotion was worth sharing my opinion of this product. Normally, I don’t feel compelled to write reviews, but I’ve had mild eczema / winter dryness for as long as I can remember.
My hands often get very bad due to the nature of my career (chemist), i.e., having to wear nitrile gloves for a large portion of the day while doing lab work and frequent hand washing. This is the only product I’ve found that works for me. I apply it just once a day during the colder months after getting out of the shower and that’s it. During the warmer months, my skin usually gets nearly problem-free due to being out in the sun and in the ocean, warmer temperatures, higher humidity etc. However, this is the product that gets me through the winter.
I’ve tried CeraVe (both the lotion and the cream) as well as Cetaphil Eczema Soothing Body Moisturizer, but they just aren’t effective for me. My skin doesn’t like greasy applications.
What I like best about the Aveeno is that it is totally non-greasy feeling. It absorbs quickly without leaving any sticky “residue” feeling on my skin. I use this product mainly as a reactionary rather than a preventative response to eczema rashes or just general dryness; i.e., I don’t apply it unless I feel like I need to. My rashes have generally cleared up with a week or two after starting once-daily application.
I should also mention that I have gone through the hellish process known as Topical Steroid Withdrawal (TSW) / Red Skin Syndrome from previous overuse of topical corticosteroids.
While going through TSW, I couldn’t apply any moisturizers to my skin at all, but now I can use this Aveeno without any issues again. After having gone through that absolutely debilitating condition, I’m highly skeptical of topical steroids as a treatment for eczema, but that’s another story. Your mileage may vary, but I definitely recommend this product for general dry skin or mild eczema.Promised Review By Devon
