I cared for my skin from the inside out with Aveeno® as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #Aveeno
Sooo, it’s back. My eczema, that is. I should really blame myself because while I usually avoid dairy products, I lose my mind when I’m pregnant. For some reason, my hormones are actually kind to me and I can tolerate dairy better while pregnant. So your girl has been going crazy. Aaaand my skin has a problem with it. I’ve become twinsies with the Belle and we are both dealing with cracking skin, inflamed skin and rashes. Lovely, right?
It’s a good time to be exploring these Aveeno® products because this Daily Moisturizing Body Wash has been helping ease my skin a bit. And that’s probably because this baby has Colloidal Oatmeal in it.
Yes babes, oatmeal doesn’t make for just a yummy breakfast meal, it can also be an incredibly healing and soothing ingredient for us sensitive skincare folx. You can absolutely tell the difference when you’re using it. Because eczema has the tendency to dry the skin out, this Body Wash does a beautiful job at locking in that moisture – even after a hot shower! Yes, impressive, it is.
Three more reasons why I love it?
It doesn’t have an overpowering fragrance
Y’all know how much I can’t stand heavy fragrances. So many brands dump them in their products and they are such a turn off for me. The Daily Moisturizing Body Wash is pretty spectacular in that it doesn’t fumigate my entire bathroom with flowery or citrus’y notes. Perfectly gender-neutral smelling for both men and women, I’m loving how the fragrance is subtle but also smells…clean!
It doesn’t cleanse TOO deeply
Look, the last thing eczema sufferers want is super cleansed skin. I’ve never been a fan of that streaky clean feeling and I’m so grateful that this body washes leaves my skin feeling moisturized and silky smooth. That must be due to the blend of natural oils and emollients.
It feels soooo good on the skin
Some products are effective and but are pretty “meh” in the pampering department. This body wash? Oh man…it feels sooooo nice going on. It’s just as creamy as it wants to be and taking a shower feels like a spa-like experience. This is a big deal when you are 9 months pregnant and know how sacred showering will become in the next few months. Yeah girl.
Ahhhh….yes, a shower. With a moisturizing body wash that heals and soothes my skin. Thank you, Aveeno®. I’ll definitely be keeping you around. Check it out here, if you’re interested in trying a fabulous body wash.
