Aveeno Moisturizing Creamy Oil

 RRP: £7.15/300ml

--What does the promo say?--
"This non-greasy formula moisturises like an oil and absorbs like a cream. It is enriched with Sweet Almond Oil and Colloidal Oatmeal. Helps maintain the skin's natural moisture level and prevent dry skin."

The pump-action plastic bottle is practical and subtle. Its brown and green colour scheme nicely accentuates the oat motif, making it stand out while highlighting the key ingredient.

One pump covers each arm and both hands, or the complete lower leg, foot and even your knee if you are frugal - so a generous amount is definitely delivered with each pump. Rub into clean dry skin.
A fine, pale cream that leaves no visible residue on the skin.

The almond oil is clearly detectable against the neutral background of the oats. Sweet without being sickly.

--Texture and consistency--
The creamy oil rubs in well and absorbs quickly. Its light, refined texture means it doesn't weigh too heavily on the skin, which is always a bonus if you are applying it before putting on clothes or footwear. 

--Effects on the skin-- 
Twice-daily use does a good job of keeping summer legs smooth. Nice one, Aveeno! 

--Value for money--
At £7.15 it's arguably getting a bit steep, even if you account for the fact that one bottle should last you a while. However, it's hardly unaffordable or out of reach, and as it's frequently on offer too, you should be able to get even better value for money out of it. Bianca's Beauty Blog was sent theirs for free by Aveeno, but we would definitely repurchase.
