Review: Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion

If you want a light and milky moisturising lotion that doesn't feel greasy and gets the job done, and is nice and cheap, you are going to want to get your hands on some of this stuff - it's Aveeno's Daily Moisturising Lotion.

I like the light texture of it and the fact that it's fragrance free -  it doesn't compete with any of the scents I choose to wear, just does it's job nice and quietly in the background. 

I have to admit I chuckled a bit when I saw that the "star ingredient" for this product is "Colloidal Oatmeal". Seriously? Colloidal means "finely ground bits in water", so in this case, that would be gruel. I guess "colloidal oatmeal" sounds a bit nicer than gruel, but still.. 

Oatmeal is great for your skin, natural and gentle, so no arguments with its inclusion here, but the endless inventiveness of cosmetic manufactures when it comes to ingredient descriptions never fails to amuse  (See also "Aqua" instead of water, because if you say it in Latin it's soooo much fancier!")

This is a really nice, no-frills, gets the job done sort of product with a price tag to match. It's readily available and comes in a generously sized bottle, so you can even let the rest of your family use this stuff without weeping into your wallet.
