Currently Loving: Aveeno Eczema Therapy Moisturizing Cream

The only thing worse than dry skin is dry, irritated skin. During the harsh winter months I sometimes scratch myself to sleep. Gross, but true.  One thing that helps moisturize my body and create a barrier between my skin and itchy wool sweaters is Aveeno Eczema Therapy Moisturizing Cream.

Let me first point out this is a CREAM and not a LOTION so prepare yourself for something thick with a bit of heft. It soaks in within seconds, but leaves a fine sheen that practically creates an extra layer of skin.

This cream is very unpretentious and doesn’t contain a bunch of fancy fragrances or additives. It relies on pure ingredients like oatmeal to help calm your skin and qualm irritability.  It boasts ceramides, which are natural lipids found in skin, to help recreate the natural barrier that is missing when skin is so dry and itchy. 

My husband has extremely dry skin and occasionally suffers from eczema, and this is one of the very few products he likes because it has no frills. When my baby’s little cheeks are red and raw from the cold dry air, this is something I reach for to make his face kissable and soft again.  I love to slather this on elbows and knees when they tend to get really parched. Almost overnight I feel a difference.

Bottom Line: At the end of the day, when I’m suffering from super dry skin, this is one of my go-to products not just for me, but for my whole family.

    Is this designed for use on the face or body?

    Hi Katie, this is for the body, but okay to use in small spots on the face—I just wouldn’t use it all over the entire face since it’s so rich.

    This sounds like a good product to try. In the winter, all my family suffer from dry, irritated, itchy skin. My feet are especially prone to this.

    I have severe hand eczema. No other creams or lotions worked at all, and even the steroid cream from my doctor barely worked. I finally tried Aveeno Eczema cream and it works better than ANYTHING else I have tried! I love it!
