Product Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Silkiest lotion ever This lotion is so silky! I love how it feels on my skin and that it is incredibly moisturizing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps The lotion is light and not oily. The smell is very neutral, not overpowering or unpleasant. The only negative is it does feel a little watery while applying, this is the opinion of my husband. I always love that the tester is not trial sizes, so my family can try it out. So I can write down different options. The texture of the lotion is nice to my skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hydrating gel moisturizer This Aveeno gel moisturizer is super hydrating. As it’s more of gel texture, it doesn’t leave the skin sticky. It’s very light weight. It calms the skin and doesn’t irritate it. Absolutely loved it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works good! I like that the formula goes on smooth and alittle goes a long way. It soaks into my skin fairly quickly. I would recommend to others. I just would like a scented option. I like that it's not thick and doesnt leave a greasy feeling once dried.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this moisturizer! I've been using this moisturizer as part of my daily skincare routine and I love it! My skin can be sensitive to certain products but this is very soothing and has great ingredients for sensitive skin. It's a lightweight gel lotion that absorbs quickly and easily with no greasy feeling. My skin feels soft and hydrated.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good lotion Overall this lotion is nice and moisturizes well. My only complaint is the consistency of the lotion is a little too runny. I felt like I had to use more to moisturize well.
Date published: 2023-09-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gentle Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin This product was surprisingly not at all greasy despite the fact that it is a gel moisturizer. I liked how it made my skin feel and I will have to strongly consider it when I am in need to purchasing a lotion.
Date published: 2023-09-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very hydrating! This is my first time ever using a gel lotion! I feel it gets into the skin much faster and the results are AMAZING! Maybe it’s me but it spreads better as well when applying.
