• Aveeno ~ The Body Wash and Nourishing Lotion


    AVEENO® body products are formulated to protect the skin and made from active colloidal oatmeal and/or pat extracts. It wasn’t until a few months back when a friend came to visit me that I took notice of this brand. I certainly wasn’t away that AVEENO® is part of the Johnson & Johnson family which we all love and trust. Yes I had seen the Jennifer Aniston ads on TV but to be honest I never gave them two hoots. Celebrity endorsed products means nothing to me these days I prefer more mouth to mouth kind of word. I would believe a fellow blogger over a celebrity any day.


    AVEENO® ~ The Body Wash

    As someone who suffers from dry itchy skin I knew I had to do my own research on this product. Though my friend was happy to recommend this product I wasn’t about to jump in without my own research. Because when you have dry itchy skin, you can’t afford to just take someone’s word for it. When I finally took the plunge and purchased the AVEENO® body wash I chose  one for dry and sensitive skin. From the visit use of this body wash I knew I had to stock up. It does not only smell amazing but feels even more amazing on the skin. The formulation is nice and gooey gel like texture and lathes up pretty nicely. I love my showers really hot but always pay the price of itchy skin after. Since using AVEENO® body wash for dry and sensitive skin that’s a thing of the past.


    AVEENO® ~ The Nourishing lotion, Skin Relief. 

    One thing that I always insist on is using the same brand for showering and after care. For me it makes sense to stick to one brand but there has been occasions that I haven’t. This wasn’t one of those occasions, I had chosen to use the nourishing skin relief lotion with sheer butter. All women of colour know sheer butter is your friend, it always moisturizes the skin and doesn’t even you dry.

    Many body lotions on the market do not contain oils that help to keep the skin moisturized. Most of us people of colour always have to add oils like J&J’s baby oil to get the similar benefits like sheer butter based products. It was therefore important for me when researching AVEENO® to find a product that would keep my skin moisturized all day. I can confirm that the skin relief lotion does exactly that and more.

    Every day I shower 2-3 times a day using the AVEENO® body wash and almost immediately after moisturize with the AVEENO® skin relief nourishing lotion. Since I started using the brand, I have not suffered a bout of itchy skin nor does it feel or look dry.

    Would I recommend AVEENO® body products to family, friends, strangers and readers? 💯 yes as this product and the brand are one I can confidently stand with. {Disclaimer: all opinions are based off my OWN experience}

      I’ve seen so much about Aveeno products and I’m going to go out and buy some. I find a lot of things I try dry my skin more than give it moisture.

      Aveeno really makes good quality products, I love their body washes and face wipes. Also like that they are not expensive.

      We love Aveeno. My whole family has sensitive skin and battles with eczema. Their body washes are mild and do not irritate. We even use it on our 7 month old grandson.

      I will get this for my mom. She’s been complaining about itchy skin. She tried some creams/other medications but it still did not work. I think this is the answer to her skin irritation.

      It’s always good to find something to help with sensitive skin. and something that is moisturizing. I hate the water here and am always looking for a less offensive way to my skin to shower.

      I ONLY use Avenno products of myself and my son because we have sensitive skin and eczema. It really helps when we have flair ups.

      Aveeno is one of my favorite brands. I have sensitive skin so I really need to watch and stay away from harsh chemicals hidden in products like lotions.

      I remember that one of my brothers had terrible skin problems as a young child. My Mom always used Aveeno to help manage them.

    25. May 10, 2017 / 2:22 pm

      I have been using some lotion that ends up leaving my skin a little sticky or greasy. I think I will need to try this brand instead.

    26. May 10, 2017 / 1:34 pm

      We use a lot of Aveeno products in our house! They are staples in this family. It’s the only lotion I can put on my son’s face that doesn’t break him out when he’s got dry skin.

    27. May 10, 2017 / 1:32 pm

      I love these products! We have several Aveeno items in the house. I use them as well as my kids. We get dry skin, and Aveeno helps!

      Aveeno seem to do some really lovely products I’ve used their moisturiser before and have been really impressed with how well it works.
