So, the other day I received a fab email offering the chance to be in on a new trial. I applied and within a few days the postman brought me a lovely package. Inside were three Aveeno Skincare Solution products; Daily Moisturising Lotion, Aveeno Cream and Colloidal Bath Powder
Daily Moisturising Lotion
Even though this is 'Fragrance Free', it does have a wheaty aroma to it. Not strong and very pleasant. I used this straight after a shower or bath, focusing mainly on my dry areas; knees, ankles, wrists and elbows. It is a very light moisturiser and absorbs into the skin great. Doesn't leave the skin feeling greasy at all, as I've found with most moisturisers and after applying my skin felt soft, smooth and hydrated. Exactly what you'd expect from a moisturiser. The sample I got was a 200ml bottle and after using for a few days now, I can see that this is going to last me quite a while as a little does indeed go a hell of a long way!
I wasn't quite sure what this cream was meant for. I mean, what area of the body. It's a smaller bottle (100ml) and came in a little box. The instructions on the back of the bottle were very similar to that of the Daily Moisturising Lotion, so I just decided to use it as a facial moisturiser.
Again, this one had a hint of wheat fragrance, absorbed great into my face/neck and worked wonders on the little dry patches I get, caused by stress. I would definitely buy this once it appears on shop shelves.
Aveeno Colloidal Bath Powder
This wasn't the best thing, or easiest thing to use. Upon pouring under bath water, it turned the bath into a gloup/porridge and didn't smell too great. Whether or not I used it properly, I don't know. It turned the bath water a brown colour, which totally put me off jumping in. I'm afraid the plug was pulled on this one and was untested. Maybe if this product was clear I would have been more keen on using it.
Overall the products are great, great packaging and the creams work a treat. I would definitely recommend this to people. You can check out the whole range here.
Thumbs up Johnson & Johnson!!
*Struggling to upload images at the moment, but as soon as it's sorted I will have a few up*
