I first heard of the brand Aveeno at BritMums Live last year, when they were in the brand area.  I am always trying to find a hand cream that works on my shockingly dry hands and that is not sticky or claggy.  As I mentioned in my first vlog this week, I have decided to try to do more in terms of a beauty regime, especially in terms of my skin.  So it was great timing when a lovely package arrived from Aveeno.


Bath & Shower Oil

Formulated with naturally active colloidal oatmeal and softening oil.  Thoroughly cleanses, moisturises and conditions dry and sensitive skin.

  • Gently cleanses the skin without irritation
  • Can be used in the bath and shower
  • Comes in a 250ml bottle

What I thought: I love the smell of this oil, which reminds me of chocolate porridge!  It felt very luxurious feeling against my skin.  Immediately, I noticed a difference in the softness of my skin, which felt much more nourished.


Formulated with active colloidal oatmeal, proven to restore the skin’s natural barrier. Also suitable for babies from 3 months who may be prone to eczema.

  • Clinically proven to hydrate and soothe dry, sensitive skin leaving it feeling comfortable, soft and smooth from day one
  • Formulated with finely milled oatmeal, proven to restore the skin’s natural barrier
  • Suitable for babies from 3 months
  • Fragrance Free
  • Available in three sizes: Convenient 100ml tube and longer lasting 300ml and 500ml pump dispensers

What I thought: I was sent the 100ml tube and I wish I was sent to 500ml dispenser as this cream is the bomb! Serious the best cream I have ever used.  I have been using it for a few days and I can not believe the difference in the softness of my very dry hands.  As I have mentioned before I dislike the feeling of most creams and usually end up wiping them off.  While this is definitely a cream (as opposed to a lotion), it absorbed quickly and immediately left my hands feeling soft, not sticky.  I am going to definitely carry on using this cream, as I adore it.


Formulated with naturally active colloidal oatmeal, this easily absorbed, non-greasy lotion relieves dry and sensitive skin. Regular use provides long-lasting protection.

  • Soothes and comforts dry and sensitive skin
  • Easy absorbed, non-greasy formula
  • Suitable for babies from 3 months
  • Fragrance free
  • Available in 500 ml bottle

What I thought: I have been using this lotion on my hands and feet at night under softening mitts/socks.  Mainly as it is a bigger bottle and I wanted to make the cream go further.  This lotion is lighter/thinner in texture than the cream, which you would expect.  This actually makes it great for using on larger areas, such as your body.   As with the other two products, I noticed a feeling in softness after a few uses and there was some difference immediately.

Meet Ellie and Eddie!

Aveeno have found that 9 out of 10 mums spend time each day dealing with their child’s eczema-prone skin.  So Aveeno have teamed up with Children’s author Penelope Harper to create a series of books surrounding Ellie and Eddie, who both have dry eczema-prone skin.  The books are intended to help adults and children learn to manage their own problem skin.  You can download the Ebook from the Aveeno website.


Disclosure: I was sent these products in return for an honest review.
