Aveeno Creamy Oil & Skin Relief Lotion.

I think I have a bit of an addiction to body lotions and body butters at the moment. I seem to have a growing collection going on.. But I just love to slap a bit of lotion on after a bath or shower to keep my skin soft and moisturised.

I was sent these two from Aveeno to try out and so I have been doing, for the last few weeks.
First up, The Creamy Oil: Combines the concentrated goodness of naturally active colloidal Oatmeal and sweet almond oil. Provides the benefit of an oil with the convenience of a cream. Helps to maintain the skin's natural moisture level and prevent dry skin. Skin is left looking and feeling soft, smooth and healthy without a greasy after feel..

This is my personal favourite from the two. It smells divine, very similar to solar oil, if you have smelt it (it is a cuticle oil) .. It has a light sweet almond scent which I love. It feels so good when you apply it, it pumps out of the bottle like a cream, but is a lovely oil when you rub it in. Just a little of this goes a long way, and it soaks in really nicely without leaving you feeling slippery, and the smell lingers for ages. It's really lovely and very moisturising.

Next, The Skin Relief Lotion: Formulated with shea butter and a unique Triple Oat complex containing finely milled naturally active colloidal oatmeal, oat oil and oat essence. Clinically proven to moisturise for 24 hours and soothe on contact, providing immediate, long lasting relief for extra dry, irritable skin. Skin is left looking and feeling soft, smooth and healthy. Fragrance free and fast-absorbing.

This is a great rich moisturiser if you have very dry skin. It is fragrance free so will not irritate the skin. My boyfriend has a problem on his leg, and needs to keep it well moisturised, and this is perfect for that - It soaks in fast without irritating him at all and it doesn't leave a greasy feeling, or any scent. 

Both are lovely lotions that are great for dry skin, or just keeping your body smooth and soft. I lilke the pump bottles too, so much less messier than a squeezy tube!

Have you tried either of these, or anything from Aveeno? Both products, and more available from Boots.
