So, I went to my local pharmaceutical store to pick myself up some Aveeno lotion and noticed how expensive it has gotten and decided not to get any. Instead, I picked up a bottle of the Suave Natural Oatmeal Moisturizer and have been using it for almost a week now and actually like the way it works and how affordable it was.
The moisturizer comes in an 18 fluid ounce hand pump bottle, which I like because it makes getting the moisturizer out of the bottle easier when I want to use some. The moisturizer is white, creamy and thin in texture without being too runny and it absorbs into the skin within seconds leaving it feeling hydrated.
One of the things I really like about this moisturizer is it doesn't have a fragrance to it so I am not sneezing or causing my allergies to flare up when I use it. I also like that it contains natural ingredients in it such as colloidal oatmeal and minerals. Since I have been using the moisturizer I have seen an improvement in my skin. My skin seems to be a lot softer and holds onto the moisture of the lotion longer so my skin doesn't become dried out during the day or night. This moisturizer actually keeps my skin hydrated for 24 hours like it says it's suppose to so I am very impressed.
I find the best time to apply the moisturizer is right after I have exfoliated my skin and body in the shower because my skin is warm, freshly clean and the moisturizer just soaks right into it well. I have also been applying this oatmeal moisturizer before bedtime and I have to say I wake up in the morning with the softest skin I have had in awhile so this makes me so happy.
I usually wake up with dry itchy skin and I hate it. I have also been applying this moisturizer to my hands a few times throughout the day to help keep them well hydrated and protected so they do not become dried out being exposed to the dry air and the harsh soapy water when I do the dishes. I also find the moisturizer has helped soften up my rough dry cracked feet nicely too.
I would say I am very happy with the Suave Natural Oatmeal Moisturizer and will continue to use it on a daily basis from now on since it is more affordable than other brands lately. I would highly recommend this oatmeal moisturizer to anyone with any skin type to use because it works well with my sensitive dry skin. I do hope those of you who try this moisturizer enjoy the way it protects and softens up your skin and body too.
