Ooh, gurl, YES! Oatmeal. And not just the kind you eat in the morning or in those Flourless Thumbprint Breakfast Cookies, which I’m totally craving right now.
Yes, Aveeno is known for their oatmeal-based lotions, and this is the latest one in their line.
The whole gist of it is this: absorption. It’s supposed to absorb within seconds and leave a powdery feeling behind.
Um…the whole “absorbs in seconds thing,” I think, is a bit of a stretch, but for me — and maybe this is just because I’m all about the lotion, and I’m not shy with it; I’m like, “put it on me!” — it takes a few minutes.
Still, that’s much better than usual for a lotion. Most of the time when I put on lotion or oil after I shower, it’ll take a good 10 minutes for it to completely sink into my skin.
I like this stuff. It’s also fragrance-free, so it doesn’t mix with any perfumes you might be wearing, and it’s pretty hydrating. Great for normal, non-alligator skin. When I use it, my skin doesn’t feel tight.
It’s also a sweet deal. $6.99 for a huge 18-ounce bottle is quite a bargain.
PRICE: $6.99 for an 18-oz. bottle
