Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion with Natural Colloidal Oatmeal

Truth be told, I spend more time on my skincare routine than make up application.  Which is why it struck me as strange that I have not blogged about skincare products as much.  I think it's because when I try something that works, I stick with it.  Well, this year I resolve to explore the other products that are out there and blog about skincare more.

Aveeno Active Naturals Daily Moisturizing Lotion is made with oatmeal which helps soothe the skin.  It does not feel greasy nor watery and the formula is light enough that it gets absorbed into the skin quickly.  After applying, it feels as if there's a protective barrier on my skin that keeps it hydrated.  Whenever I apply this at bedtime, my skin still feels moisturized upon waking up.

You know how your skin tends to get dark because of excessive dryness?  It happens to me from time to time.  After three months of using this twice daily, I noticed that some dark areas were getting lighter.  Proof that my skin is on the road to recovery.  
It has a very faint smell which is probably because of the oatmeal.  Quite pleasant, actually.  Next time I may just experiment by adding some essential oil.

Since I suffer from adult acne, I'm very careful about the products I put on my body.  This is non-comedogenic and true enough, no breakouts in the areas where I apply this.  I read somewhere that it can also be used on the face.  This lotion is gentle enough that I think I'm going to try that.  Let's see how that works.

I've been using this for a year and I love it!  Even when I'm using other lotions, I still keep this in stock and use it at least once a day in dry areas.  Definitely one of the best skincare products in the planet.
