One of the most commonly asked questions I get from friends, family and coworkers is, “what’s a good body moisturizer?” Maybe it’s because winter is coming (or here…given it felt like it was in the TEENS when I woke up this a.m.), but lotion seems to be on everyone’s mind. Regardless, I have the answer: AVEENO Positively Nourishing Body Moisturizer.
I first tried this body lotion back in February when I was in Los Angeles for the Independent Spirit Awards with 25 other bloggers and the AVEENO team, during a moment that remains probably the most relaxing 30 minutes I’ve had in 2011. The team arranged for massages using the Positively Nourishing Body Moisturizer, and we had our choice of Aveeno Postively Nourishing in Refreshing, featuring blueberry and goji berry; Soothing, which has vanilla and chamomile; or Invigorating, with grapefruit and rosemary. I opted for the Invigorating, and I felt so refreshed afterwards. Ever since, I’ve really come to love these lotions. Good memory association, you know?
I like that they each have a subtle smell that doesn’t compete with the perfume I wear and the forumla does a good job locking in moisture, thanks to the addition of AVEENO’s signature nourishing oatmeal. Plus, at $8.49 a bottle, they are a steal! For how much lotion is needed to survive a winter, a good priced option is key.
