I cared for my skin from the inside out with Aveeno® as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. #Aveeno
Every winter the ashy monster rears its ugly head. The shower is where I see it, and it’s where the battle begins. I’m talking about winter dry skin. Dry weather, hot water, heaters blasting, cold winds blowing—these all give life to it. The Evil Dry Skin Monster is easy to defeat, however, with Aveeno. I just sampled the new Aveeno Skin Relief Gentle Scent Body Wash in Nourishing Coconut and I’m still marveling at its power.
First off, I’m a big Aveeno fan. For as long as I can remember, their soothing oatmeal baths and lotions were always my first line of defense for itchy or inflamed skin. As their product line expanded, I sampled more and more. Even though I’ve used more expensive brands as I’ve gotten older, Aveeno is still always present in my bathroom cabinet—dependable, inexpensive and easy to find.

The Aveeno Skin Relief Gentle Scent Body Wash in Nourishing Coconut is a fantastic addition to their classic products. As gentle as fragrance-free versions, this body wash is free of soaps and dyes and is allergy tested. That’s nice to know because while my skin does get dry and ashy, it also has a tendency to get quite sensitive, and many seemingly rich soaps actually increase its dryness.
If you’re not a lover of scented products, fear not! The coconut scent is quite mild, reminding me more of a light rosemary than the sweet, sugary manufactured coconut scents we are used to. The scent also disappears on the skin, leaving only softness behind.
The Skin Relief Gentle Scent Body Wash in Nourishing Coconut still has the colloidal Oatmeal that Aveeno is known for, long recommended by dermatologists to restore skin’s normal pH level while protecting dry skin. Oatmeal also contains vitamins such as B6, E, Niacin and Thiamine that contribute to healthy skin.
The Gentle Scent Body Wash produces a light lather and leaves no residue. I combined this with Aveeno’s Skin Relief Gentle Scent Lotion in Nourishing Coconut after the shower to fully feel powerful moisturizing effects. The lotion is like a rich gel (kind of resembling the coconut syrup I buy every time I go to Hawaii, actually) and has the same clean scent as the Body Wash. This scent, too, is soft and fleeting.
I have nothing but raves for Aveeno’s new Skin Relief Gentle Scent Body Wash. Best of all, I no longer need fear the monster in my shower this time of year, with Aveeno serving as my lance, my light saber and my silver bullet. we heartsters, go ahead and slay your Dry Skin Monster!
