Winter Skin Saviour -AVEENO® Skin Relief Moisturising Lotion with Menthol


Over the summer I developed this painful and irritating rash all over my legs. The combination of sunburn, allergies and the wrong skincare lead to swollen, itchy and inflamed legs.  I lived in maxi dresses because my legs looked hideous and it was so difficult to shave and wax my legs, seriously, they looked like those the dry, cracked earth you see in the desert. I tried so many products to alleviate the pain and soften my skin and after 4 months of agony, I found a moisturiser which transformed my skin overnight.

The Aveeno Skin Relief Moisturising Lotion with Menthol is a moisturising lotion that has been developed with naturally active Collodial Oatmeal and Menthol for extra dry, irritated and sensitive skin has cooling properties to soothe irritated dry skin.

The moisturiser is supposed to be fragrance free, however it does smell like menthol.  Its light, non greasy, and moisturises skin immediately leaving it tingly and cool. At first I didn’t really believe it would work because I had been suffering for so many months, and nothing seemed to be working, but after my first use, I noticed that my raw inflamed skin had calmed down and started to feel softer. After one months use, my sore skin has started to dry up and thanks to this moisturiser, the scales have started to disappear. Its amazing! My only negative feedback is that its uncomfortable to use during the winter due to its cooling properties, especially at night, when you want to feel all comfy and warm.  Therefore, I have started to only using it a few days a week, which is actually fine as my skin is on the mend.
