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!

I like this moisturiser, it's thick and cremy, my skin feels so soft after using it. Not the best smell, but i still use it :)

This is my emergency cream. By that, I mean it's what I use when my skin has gotten so dry I'm in a state of emergency! It's one of the only creams I have found that helps my skin recover from being sapped of moisture. Unusual smell, but suitable for healing my sensitive skin. Apply it straight after getting out of the shower.

Thick and luxurious
I love this cream as it feels very rich and indulgent on my skin. However, I found that it doesn't absorb properly unless I use it straight after a shower. Not a great fragrance but once its absorbed, the smell doesn't linger so I didn't mind it. I have friends with skin allergies and eczema and they also swear by this cream.

My skin is very dry as i have ezcema and some pretty bad allergies, so after my immunology/allergy doctor reccommended that i try this cream, i went out and bought it as at this point my skin was really bad.
This helps SOO much with very dry skin and the cooling menthol feel is great for itchy skin. I would definitely buy this again.

i keep this in my bathroom for whenever i need it
it isnt intensively moistursing and has a strange but refreshing scent. i think the scent and cooling sensation is where the 'relief' comes from

this is a light, comfortable cream
this is great for my skin, because i'm acne prone, but its not too heavy and is way better than what i expected out of a ''cream'', as i normaly avoid these.

stays on top of skin
its very moisturising but it stays on top of skin and doesnt soak in. not good.

More a medicinal cream than beauty
I wasn't a fan of this thick cream. The aroma was medicinal and not exactly a pleasant aroma. I'd only use it if it was the only cream you had on hand - and weren't going out.

Aveeno Active Naturals Skin Relief Moisturising Cr
As I have sensitve skin I often need a body moisturiser to help combat the dry skin without irritating it further when it flares up. It offers soothing relief while at the same time providing the necessary moisture to condition the dry skin. It is not expensive and comes in a good sized tub that lasts for ages. It contains menthol, shea butter and oatmeal which are good healing and cooling ingredients. It is a nice thick rich cream with a refreshing scent. Good for the children and anyone at all with dry irritable sensitive skin.

Aveeno Moisturising Cream
This cream is so soothing, it's the best moisturiser I've ever tried. Fixed my dry skin problem in days! Also, once when I was desperate for lip balm but had run out, I used it on my lips and I had super soft lips! It's like an all over moisturiser miracle product.

Perfect for sensitive skins
It's like chicken soup for dry and sensitive skins. Mine seems to soak up this moisturizing cream, and can't get enough of it. Recommend using it with the body wash for best results.

I loved this cream as a swim coach it was the only product I could find to stop my skin drying out. I could feel it on my skin all day, It has even stoped the rash I alway have on my arms.

Soothing rich moisture
I love this cream but unfortunately while massaging it into my skin it usually forms balls of moisturiser that fall off my skin. I could only use it at night. This has stopped me from purchasing the cream again.
