Aveeno Skin Relief Shea Butter Moisturising Lotion


I've found it. I've found the best body lotion ever. 


I've said it before and I'll say it again, have skin so dry that its moisture levels would rival that of the Sahara. Yeah. Not only is it dry, but it's itchy and uncomfortable and just generally not a nice thing to deal with everyday.

It's been getting gradually worse and worse and I have tried so many things to try and sort it out and I was considering going to a dermatologist to find out what was going on. 
But I was in Asda yesterday doing my first food shop since being back at uni (ah, responsibilities!) and my boyfriend suggested that I pick up the Aveeno Skin Relief lotion.

Boy am I glad I did! 
I got home and essentially covered myself in it and immediately the itching stopped and my skin looked visibly better - it looked like there had never been any dry patches at all and it. 
Better still, it felt amazing! So soft. 

But I fell unconditionally in love with thisproduct this afternoon, when I noticed something incredible. 
The worst affected area for me is the outside of my thighs which is dry and red and horrible. 
I noticed this afternoon that this has cleared that patch up almost entirely! I was actually so excited that I shouted at my boyfriend to come and look at my thighs! I'm not sure he understood haha!

It contains 'naturally active Triple Oat Complex' and reading the ingredients, oats seem to be the majority which is great! It smells like oats as you'd imagine which isn't amazing but it isn't unpleasant, just a little earthy I'd say. But this could smell disgusting and I'd still recommend this to anyone because it's the only thing I've ever found that's made any difference at all.

I've mentioned before that my face also suffers from my dry skin, particularly around my eyes and my mouth - so bad sometimes that I can't even wear make-up. On a whim last night, I decided to just apply a little bit of this to those areas and woke up this morning with honestly, no dry skin on my face AT ALL! My foundation looked better today than it has in months and months. 

I'm waxing lyrical, I know. I could talk about this all day but to save you from boredom I'll just say that this is incredible stuff. Absolutely incredible. 

If, like me you suffer from dry skin then I 100% recommend that you go and try this. It's not expensive at £5 and is really accessible. 

I can't believe I didn't try this sooner!

P.s. I'm sorry for the poor lighting and general photo quality - it's horrible and grey outside today and my room just isn't getting the light I need but I wanted to upload this because I'm so excited! I hope you don't mind?

Thanks for reading,
