Review

I purchased this lotion for my face. Though my skin is oily but lately it has been becoming extremely dry and rough on the surface. I needed something which can hydrate without breaking out my skin. The reason why I was persuaded to buy this lotion is, first of all, its fragrance free which is utmost important for a sensitive skin person like me and secondly its paraben free. The packaging is not at all fancy. It comes in a plastic tube having dark green colour cap. But honestly packaging never bothers me if the product is good.

This Lotion doesn’t specify whether it’s a face lotion or a body lotion. But I used it on my face only. Though it claims to be a lotion but its consistency is more like a dense cream. Since it is quite dense, only a tiny amount is needed to cover your face and neck. It spreads easily on skin and gets absorbed quickly. 

Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion stands true to its claim of moisturisation. It does moisturise skin amazingly. Within 2-3 days, you can feel smoothness and suppleness on skin. It does hydrates the skin well. Since only a tiny amount is needed each time, this lotion will last a very long time.



This lotion can be applied on any part of the body.

It is suitable for dry, combination as well as oily skin. The best part is, it did not react or made my skin sensitive.

Overall, I loved this lotion. Do give it a try if you are suffering from dry skin. It would immediately quench the thirst of your skin making it healthy and beautiful.

I would give this lotion 4.5/5⭐.

Take care and Keep Blinging.
