I was sent these products to review, and I've been using them over the last week or so to test them out.
The first product I was sent was the hand cream. According to Aveeno, the 'hand cream with naturally active colloidal oatmeal moisturises for 24 hours, forming a protective glove, and lasts through hand washing. Absorbs quickly and leaves dry hands looking and feeling soft, smooth and healthy'.
I was very impressed with this hand cream. Its a gel cream formula that sinks into the skin very quickly with no greasy afterfeel. I'm a bit of an obsessive hand washer so needed something very moisturising. I had some dry patches at the bottom of my fingers and they disappeared very quickly after I started using the cream. I normally use this 3/4 times a day after washing my hands and apply a think layer at bedtime. Its done a great job of keeping my skin moisturised and I've not had any dry patches since I started using it. It has a faint oatmeal smell but is barely noticable after application.
I was also sent the creamy moisturising oil to try out. According to the packaging the product 'is formulated with the concentrated goodness of finely milled naturally active colloidal oatmeal and sweet almond oil, known for their moisturising properties. It combines the benefits of an oil with the convenience of a cream, helping to maintain the skin's natural moisture level and prevent dry skin. Skin is left looking and feeling soft, smooth and healthy without a greasy after-feel.'
Again this product does what it says on the bottle. Its a light lotion that is easy to spread and sinks in quickly. It has a almond scent to it which I initially wasn't keen on but its grown on me and the scent lingers lightly on the skin afterwards which I really like. I like the fact that the bottle comes with a pump as the lotion is quite runny so it makes it easy to control how much product you want. I have normal/dryish skin and this does a good job of keeping them moisturised!
I've never used any Aveeno products before but I really like these two products and will definitely consider buying more products once I've finished my current collection of toiletries.
