Great for my dry skin
I bought this to qualify for a Priceline skincare goodie bag last year. One word, fantastic.
I was pregnant at the time and my dry skin got even drier and itchier. Obviously the winter days didn't help either. I was using QV cream at the time, when it ran out, I started using this.
First of all I love the jar packaging. I always prefer moisturisers in a jar so that you can get to the last bit to avoid wastage. The cream is thick and works well to retain my skin moisture. It says on the description about the cooling effect from menthol, but I didn't feel it at all.
My skin gets red and patchy from dryness every now and then, but with this cream, my red patches disappear in a week or so. Very effective.
Overall this is a great product and I definitely recommend if you have very dry and sensitive skin.

Very good for dry skin
I was recommended by a pharmacist to use this as I have really sensitive skin. I tend to have dry patches particularly on my cheeks and under eye area. I use this cream twice a day. Once after showering and once before going to bed. If your skin gets irritated or feels tight after showering, this is the cream for you. The consistency of this cream is really thick compared to the ones I've tried previously which is great for my normal -dry skin.
I tried using this cream as a base for my makeup. It didnt work out for me. This product didnt mix well with my foundation. In these cases I would use a cream or lotion with a lighter consistency.

Saved me from itchy madness
This was one of the products I purchased on advice from my GP when I had a crazy hive outbreak after moving into a rental house that gave me crazy allergies. My GP suggested steroids, but before starting on them, he said that I might find some relief from the colloidal oatmeal in the Aveeno products. In combination with the body wash, found this to work really well to keep the itch tolerable. The menthol feeling is a bonus. I'm not sure how or why, but it makes me feel less itchy. I keep one of these at home for the occasional dry-itchy outbreak.

Star cream for ultra dry skin
Both hubby & I like to use this cream in winter. We got our first tub from a Priceline workshop years ago. And now we always keep a tub at home for any emergency treatment for dry skin. It does hydrates very well, not greasy at all, yet it provides a barrier to your skin which keep your skin hydrated for hours!

Great if you want soft skin.
I like the Lotion version slightly more, however if you are tossing between the two, there isn't much difference in terms of their effects. I find this product is best used at night as it is thicker and more concentrated. It leaves my skin so soft.

great for eczema sufferers
This was a lifesaver when my skin went through a stage (about a year) of really bad eczema. When your skin is so itchy and you just want to scratch like crazy the cooling effect in this moisturiser feels amazing!

Great value for money!
I love this product as I do prefer cream moisturizers over lotions. Lotions are just too runny and don't work AS well for dry skin. This does feel a tad heavy, but I love it! Definitely not to be used on face though. The downfall of this product would be the jarred packaging, but again.. all cream products are jarred!
