Putting on any moisturizing lotion is one thing but finding the right one is everything! Dried skin is an absolute no, especially during the cold winter season. What I look for in a moisturizing lotion for the hands is texture, scent, long lasting, and does it actually moisturize my skin? I have tried many hand lotions – some specifically for the hands and others which are moisturizers for the body. From drugstore to higher-end brands, there was a ton of hits but I managed to narrow it down and conclude this to be my #1 favourite in the moisturizing hand lotion department.
Why I love it: A gentle lightweight texture which goes on smoothly and absorbs quickly. Once applied, my hands instantly felt softer – almost as silk, no greasy feel or stickiness. My hands felt moisturized even after countless hand washes throughout the day, there was no need to frequently reapply. There was also no scent attached. Although the product states “fragrance free”, I was pleasantly surprised to know it did not have the scentless scent. Lastly, this is a drugstore find, so not only is it a great product but it won’t break the bank.
The Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion is great to use not just on the hands but wherever skin feels dry or irritated. I occasionally use from head to toe but gravitate using it for my hands. I love that it helps prevent and protects dry skin. During colder months, my hands often feel dry very quickly. The lotion leaves my skin feeling softer, smoother, healthier, close to a baby’s skin.
I love this product so much that I almost literally have one in every room, on my desk, in my purse. Definitely give the Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion a try and let me know your thoughts!
