AVEENO #WinterSkin Skin Relief Lotion and Ointment Review + PayPal Giveaway + Thank You AVEENO

Brrr...winter skin. Cold weather, heaters and such can do a doozy on your skin! It's even extra hard if you already have DRY SKIN (like me). I was VERY happy when AVEENO sent me pretty much a Winter Skin Survival Kit! I was unaware that they had an entire SKIN RELIEF COLLECTION! Well, it's maybe that's the reason why! LOL They sent me their Skin Relief Moisturizing Lotion and Skin Relief Healing Ointment. They also included Lubriderm's Men's Body, Face & Post Shave Lotion (I'm gifting it to a neighbor). My reviews on each are below. If you would like to know more about #WinterSkin, log onto Twitter (today) December 11th from 12:00pm - 1:00pm EST @Crowdtappers Dr. Jacob will be talking about #WinterSkin and sharing some tips like the one's below.

I'm hosting my own personal giveaway in helping YOU combat #WinterSkin. A $25 Giveaway via PayPal to purchase whatever AVEENO products to keep your skin moisturized. Aveeno has been kind to me (check my instagram page! they sent me a clutch, products and a $100 American Express gift card) and I believe in passing that onto others. I would like to THANK the entire AVEENO Team for selecting me to be an AVEENO Ambassador for 2014. I got the chance to try products that worked for my skin type and incorporate healthy lifestyle changes (both inside and out) into my life. I look better. I feel better. Beauty truly is both INSIDE and OUTSIDE. Thank You AVEENO for this opportunity, for both me and my readers.

Aveeno Skin Relief Moisturizing Lotion

This is NEW! It's a triple oat formula, with shea butter extract that relieves itchy, extra dry skin and moisturizes for 24 hours. It's also fragrance free and dermatologist recommended.

What I like about this lotion is that it's creamy, moisturizing, non-sticky, non-greasy, non-oily, has Aveeno's signature scent (fragrance free and won't compete with your fragrance). It felt really good and nourishing to my skin. I disagree with the 24 hour part. I did have to reapply a couple of times within that time frame, but I didn't mind. I rather re-apply, than be greasy/oily, because it's too heavy.

I really liked this lotion and encourage everyone to try it.

Aveeno Skin Relief Healing Ointment
This is also NEW! It's a petrolatum skin protectant for irritated, cracked dry skin. It soothes skin with 24 hour moisture. It's lanolin, fragrance and dye free. It's also dermatologist recommended.

This is like petroleum jelly. Remember, a skin protectant acts like a second skin or shield for your skin. It's to be placed on minor cuts, scrapes, burns, chapped skin and lips. Individuals that work outside, who participate in outside "cold" sports and activities would love this. I tried this on the heels of my feet (put on socks), before buffering them and my heels are so smooth! I had a small scissor cut on my finger (opening too many packages LOL) and I put this on the cut before washing dishes. It did great. I didn't like it on my lips (petroleum feel), but it worked. I prefer my Fresh lip balm. For BODY, I love it. Also keep in mind, this is not first-aid cream or antibacterial like Neosporin.

Lubriderm Men's Body, Face & Post Shave Lotion
This is for men, so I couldn't test it. I've tried Lubriderm Lotion for women and it's very good. I'll just give you the description for this lotion. This triple action formula moisturizes, improves and soothes skin. It's aloe enriched formula helps soothe skin after shaving. It has a light, fast absorbing formula. This is specifically formulated for a man's skin and dermatologist tested. It was designed to improve the skin's moisture barrier for healthy looking skin. It's aloe-enriched formula also helps soothe skin after shaving. Fast absorbing. Non-greasy.

  22. i've been using lubriderm lotion for many years. it's the only one i found that is not greasy. LOVE. nice to see they have one for will make great gifts as i tend to gift "practical" beauty products to the men in my family since i know they won't buy it for themselves.

  23. Since the regular one works great for you, I might have to pick up the men's one for Kyle. He can be weird about lotion, so this might be right up his alley!
