If you want to banish dry skin like a medieval outcast, retire your suit of armour, and arm yourself with a bottle of Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion! (The lotion is mightier than the sword.)
Its packaging may look plain and boring, but it’s what’s inside that counts, remember? 😉
I’ve depended on this Aveeno hand and body moisturizer for a few years now. Every time that I’ve ever strayed, I always go back to this.
It works. And I like how it doesn’t have any frills or frou-frou fragrance that competes with the perfume I’m wearing.
This Aveeno lotion is a workhorse – does the job…even when it has work cut out for it! And dry skin doesn’t stand a fighting chance – it retreats to the valley. (Where’s the valley? I don’t know. But let’s just pretend it makes sense.)
Come see why this is a winter must-have for me!

Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion Review
In order for me not to “Bust” a moisturizer on Swatch And Learn, at the very minimum, it must do its job – moisturize! The Daily Moisturizing Lotion by Aveeno definitely moisturizes. And it starts to work immediately, which is why I like it so much.
I’m the type of person who doesn’t moisturize my hands often, but I wash them a lot. See the problem here? I’m stripping the natural oil from my skin a lot, but not replenishing it.
So, usually it’s when I start to feel that the back of my hands are dry when I use moisturizer. (I’m trying to improve my habits and get into the preventative mindset.)
Every single time that my hands have been parched and I’ve slathered this stuff on, it always started to work immediately.
If my hands are reallllly dry, then it’ll sting. But if my hands are just a normal kind of dry, it doesn’t irritate.
What I enjoy about the Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion is that not only does it start hydrating your skin immediately, but when it soaks in, your skin actually looks better – smoother and more supple.
When I’ve used this on my raw, sore hands in the dead of winter, this is the lotion that brought them back to normal and healed them.
The rare times that I reapplied this, I did notice that it kept improving the softness of my skin.
Can the Lotion Withstand Hand Washing?
No. If you use a good soap with water, you’ll be washing this lotion down the drain.
However, Aveeno has another formula in purple-and-beige packaging that provides intense therapy. I’ve tried it, and it actually stays on your skin even after one or two hand washings!
Some people dislike the consistency, but I love it. It’s thicker, doesn’t feel greasy, and it’s not watery. When it comes to hand creams, I prefer something that’s heavy so that it lasts longer. And I find that a lot of the thinner lotions like the ones from Bath & Body Works just stay slick for too long.
This Aveeno moisturizer isn’t meant to be used exclusively for hands (you can use it on your body, too), but I mainly use it for my hands before I leave the house and before bed.
The packaging is really no-nonsense. This doesn’t bother me, but if you’re looking for something pretty to have in your bathroom, haha, this isn’t it.
I really appreciate how this size comes with a pump – it’s easier to dispense the product. And even if you need to go back and get more, you’re not Butter Fingers trying to unscrew a cap.
However, obviously, this size isn’t meant for travelling. But you can get smaller sizes in a tube with a flip-up cap.
Final Verdict: 10/10
Yes, I gave this a perfect score! The Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion is my favourite lotion even though there are lots of prettier ones on the market that make you smell yummy. When I use hand cream, a lot of times it’s because I need hydration ASAP! It may not be an exciting product, but it gets the job done (and quickly, too)!
How do you deal with dry skin during this time of year? Do you like scented lotions? Do you prefer thick or thin lotions?
