Great when sun burnt!
I have received three sample sizes of this cream in the last year from one box subscription. I was pretty annoyed. THEN I got sun burnt.
I was up late one night, lamenting about the pain of my burn; Googling for something to soothe my skin and restore some moisture. The results came back repeatedly with aloe vera in both natural form and gel/spray, tomatoes sliced in half and applied to the skin (uh, no, doesn't work, plus why would you put something mildly acidic on a bit of damaged, raw feeling skin?) and a few other results including application of products containing wheat! Aveeno cream was the one consistently mentioned brand.
I dug out a half used sample, applied it to my extremely angry looking legs and waited for it to do nothing as it had previously done on my legs. I was wrong. The cream was soaked up straight away and a bit of the sting was taken from my legs. I put my full sample in the fridge and kept the half used one next to my pillow.
Over the week I used it whilst sun burnt I was relieved to have this cream. I will NEVER buy another aloe vera gel or mist. It might not work for me under normal conditions but it was a life saver and the only thing that soothed my legs and arms whilst sun burnt.
I don't rate it that highly for normal use but damn, it's my number one for sunburn!
Sun burnt? RUN to your local chemist or Priceline and get this cream! Put it on your sun burnt skin as soon as you own it and pop it in the fridge for a delicious cool feeling during your next application. It is amazing.

A reliable old favourite
I'm yet to find a body moisturiser that completely blows me away, but I find I do go back to Aveeno when I'm not sure what to try next. Not sure about it's 24 hour moisturising claims but it does sink in quickly, is non-greasy and makes my skin look smooth and hydrated. It doesn't quite cut it on my extremely dry thighs and upper arms, but I haven't found anything that does. All in all, a good option for all skin types or for those sensitive to fragrances. I can see why this is a favourite!
Don't use this on your face! I was trying to be thrifty when I ran out of day cream once and it broke me out terribly!

What a great product
We were away on holidays by the beach and my skin was drying out so I borrowed my mums bottle of Aveeno Daily Moisturizer and it was amazing. Once I applied the moisturizer to my skin I felt instant relief from dryness. It soaked in to my skin and kept it moist for hours without feeling greasy. It worked so well I have bought the large double pack from Costco. Thanks Aveeno it's not very often I find a moisturizer that I really like.

I received a sample of this with a bellabox purchase and I absolutely love it.
It has a lovely light oatmeal scent and a smooth texture that doesn't go on too greasy. That said, if you apply a bit too much it might feel a little sticky on the skin.
This has made a big difference to the texture of my skin. I find frequent shaving leaves my legs a bit rough, but what I like to do is full on slather myself in this before bed and shower it off in the morning. It leaves my legs super silky and soft. I don't have to exfoliate as much when I use this, as it makes a huge difference in improving the texture of my skin.

Best body moisturiser on a budget
I really love the Aveeno range and the fact that its affordable but still great value. I use this inconjuction with the Shower gel and they keep my skin smooth and supple. I have always had bumpy keratosis pilaris on my hips and sometimes thighs, if i'm keeping ontop of my moisturising with this lotion my skin is bump free and so smooth!
Use with the shower gel for best results

Great for body
This moisturiser is great but I still find it a bit too oily. I used it for my face once and it was WAY too oily so I just stick to body only. I like the wheaty smell and it feels nourishing on my skin especially where I have eczema. Use it if you have dry skin

Excellent moisturiser for dry skin
This works wonders for my dry skin. I actually use it on my face as well, and it really softens any dry patches. I use this before applying foundation because it sinks into my skin quickly.
If my skin is particularly dry, I apply one layer and then apply another after a few minutes!

really good for dry skin
I really like this moisturiser. It soaks quickly into your skin and doesn't feel at all greasy. Good for everyday use.

I love this product. Very mild smell and soaks in well. I use it in combination with the Aveeno body wash and it works wonders.

The only body moisturiser you'll need
I am guilty of not moisturising everyday. I think Aveeno totally thought about the lazy people who don't moisturise their body everday because this is such an absorbing, smooth moisturiser when applied on. I have very dry legs and when I apply this moisturiser constantly for a week, it last a few more weeks before it gets dry again. This moisturiser is the bomb diggity! Makes moisturising my skin so much fun!! :D THE SMELL MY GOODNESSS... IT SMELLS LIKE OATS AND I LOVE OATS!
Apply before you go to bed, that why you're skin is able to breathe and really absorb the moisturising cream.
Dry skin and perfect for everyday use or lazy people like me
