Great product for dry skin

This product is very moisturising, and doesn't leave my skin feeling heavy and sticky after application. It has a smooth texture, and is easily blended into the skin. Fragrance free as well. Would repurchase and recommend this product to a friend.

Ideal for

Any skin type

Fragrance free + oatmeal = perfect formula

I've noticed this made the Top 100 Beauty Products of all time list on here, and I'm not surprised. It's an exceptional body moisturiser, one that I think is almost the perfect body moisturiser formula.

The combination of natural colloidal oatmeal & a fragrance free, natural based lotion results in a body moisturiser that is suitable for just about everyone.

It's so, so soothing - if I've been outside on a hot day, or have some sunburn, applying this body lotion goes to work immediately to sooth, calm & restore my skin's moisture balance. I absolutely adore the texture - medium thickness without any heaviness, it absorbs quickly & readily.

Any thirsty patches on my skin ie heels, elbows, feet benefit from a thicker application and after regular use, have become silky soft & smooth.

It's also great value for money, often on sale for under $10 for the largest pump bottle size. I find it lasts months of regular use too. A body lotion I give 5 stars to, and will be buying again and again


Best applied freshly after a shower, and a 'go-to' after anytime outside on a hot day

Ideal for

Everyone - it's so soothing & moisturising

Didn't work for me.

This product just didn't work for me. It would not absorb into my skin at all. I did like that it was fragrance-free, so it didn't irritate my legs further. It didn't rub off on anything, either, so that was nice. I just found that it sat on the top of my skin and seemed to evaporate after awhile. If I used this on my arms, I found myself reapplying basically every time I looked at my arms because the dryness was so apparent.

Gave this away pretty quickly.


Buy in in a small bottle first. This definitely works for some people and not others.

best budget buy

This is a holy grail product
Affordable and functional.
I use this mainly for my legs and arms when they are really dry in the winter. ..this is perfect for healing flaky elbows and dry knees. It also works wonders for after shaving so your legs are dry and scaly. You really dont need a lot of product. A larfe bottle lasted me a good 8 months of daily usage
I really like that its fragrance free so it doesn't changethe smell of my perfumes. All rounda great product

Ideal for

Anyone with dry skin

i love aveeno

Ok I absolutely love aveeno products but when it comes to this one I find after putting it on for next few hours my legs r really slimy and sticky even after rubbing in it heaps. Now it gets to be a problem for me as I moisturize my legs arms etc just before bed and just before I get dressed through the day. But I still love the feeling of it once it has dry leaving my skin feel wonderful


Don't put to much on

Ideal for

Men and woman all types

I used this for over 2 years a few years back. And let me just say I love it. It was perfect, the size of the bottle, the texture, the quality. Just perfect. The only thing that was wrong was that apparently using this my face tended to go green. I do not care. It kept away pimples and helped my face stay 100% everyday. It was great for my legs after shaving and kept away shaving bumps. It just was amazing, it kept my skin hydrated and was great for being out in the sun. I loved it! I haven't seen it around lately but I loved it!


Use it!

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!
