Product Review: Aveeno Stress Relief Moisturizing Lotion

Reviewer: Cinnamon Kitten

Brand: Aveeno
Name: Stress Relief Moisturizing Lotion
Size: 532 ml
Price: approx. $15.99 CAD

The latest Aveeno addition to the Stress Relief collection, this lotion contains Active Naturals colloidal oatmeal, lavender, chamomile and ylang-ylang oils to help calm and relax skin, promising to keep your skin moisturized for 24 hours.

To Purr About:
- absorbs moderately quickly
- light lavender scent is nice and relaxing (for those that like their lotions scented)
- good, moisturizing lotion

Claws Out:
- skin felt slightly rubbery after absorbing the lotion
- the cream is a little thicker than my current favourite lotion (another Aveeno product)
- I prefer my lotions unscented

Final Comments:
As I've mentioned in previous reviews, I prefer my lotions unscented as it's competing with so many other scents. But I generally make exceptions if a lotion is outstanding since I'll put up with a lot if a lotion delivers great moisturization.

This Aveeno lotion is pretty good - I found that my skin was hydrated for much longer compared to some other lotions and the lavender scent is relaxing (adding to its claims to aid in stress relief). The only thing I wasn't crazy about was that even though my skin was hydrated, it wasn't "silky smooth", which is something that my current favourite Aveeno lotion, the Creamy Moisturizing Oil does deliver.

For those that want something to use before bed, this may be an ideal lotion for some end-of-the day relaxation. Plus you get quite a large bottle for the price, making it a good value for what it delivers.

Rating (out of 5):
