I absolutely love this lotion. No questions about it, it is the very best for curing dry skin. I have purchased this same Aveeno daily moisturizing lotion for many years, and I am very glad they have not changed their formula. My family and I have gone through numerous lotions that claim they have that “secret” formula to cure dry skin, while being fragrance free. Truth is, no one comes even close to the Aveeno lotion. No one.
I am the type of person that likes to carry a small bottle wherever I go, and use it quite frequently. I have had many other brands, and most of them were greasy, expensive and worthless. They either smelled too strongly, or just made my hands greasy without providing any real form of relief. Needless to say, I found this to be very annoying and frustrating. My whole life changed when I was introduced to Aveeno by a close friend.

My initial thought that this lotion was just like all the others, and that it would maybe work for a few minutes, and then I would have to reapply constantly. Boy was I wrong. I applied it once, and I forgot all about it. It was that good. I did not consider applying again, because I did not need it. My hands were truly soft and not dry. I was able to go on with my day without being bothered by dry, gross hands.
The only drawback to this moisturizing lotion is the price, but hey, you get what you pay for. It is a lot cheaper to get another brand, but would you really risk the quality of your lotion? After all of these years struggling to find the right one, I will not buy another one. I also find the smell kind of blah. It says it is fragrance free, but it still has a bit of a smell to it. I can't pin it down, though.
I like that the lotion comes in different sizes. I can buy a small version for my purse (and the cap is secure and does not make a mess in my purse), a medium one for my night stand, and a beautifully huge bottle for everyday use. Pricey, yes, but so worth it. You will seriously not have to buy another lotion for dry hands. I have plenty of Aveeno products, but this is by far my favorite one.
