Today, I would like to review a body wash that I discovered recently. Please read on to see how this one fared for me.
Revive extra-dry skin with an extra-soothing body wash. Say hello to comfort that lasts all day long with Aveeno Skin Relief Body Wash. This creamy cleanser’s formula of Active Naturals Colloidal Oatmeal locks in moisture even after you rinse. So dry, itchy skin feels soft and smooth, and stays that way all day long. This soothing body wash is also fragrance-free, dye-free and gentle enough for sensitive skin. It’s time to get comfortable for good.
$CA 12 for 354 ml.
My Experience with Aveeno Skin Relief Body Wash:
The body wash comes in a white bottle with green flip cap. There are various sizes available to choose from. It’s difficult to sense how much product is left owing to opaqueness of bottle, but that is not big deal I guess. The formula is clear gel, with no scent at all. It claims to be fragrance free and specially formulated for sensitive skin and that ‘s the sole reason why I picked up this bottle. I have sensitive skin which is prone to itchiness due to sun sensitivity.
Major ingredients of this body wash are oats and glycerin which is what I need most for my dry and sensitive skin.
Now coming to usage of the product. The formula turns into a rich creamy lather when I add water to it. It lathers well with or without loofah. I require less quantity of the product for covering whole body compared to other shower gels I have used so far. I don’t mind good fragrance in shower gels or body washes as they feel so aromatic in shower but owing to my sensitive skin, I prefer fragrance-free products.
I like how my skin feels soft and moisturised on using it every day. I still don’t know whether it works on itchy skin or not as I have not had itchy skin issue since long, but it is definitely good for dry and sensitive skin. Also, it does not irritate my skin which is also a great turn on for me. I love this product so far and would continue using it.
This product can also be used as a shaving cream, but I prefer waxing and avoid shaving, so don’t know how it works as shaving cream. But owing to its rich consistency, I think it will do a good job as shaving cream too.
