Honest reviews



I am so pleased to have discovered this product! I can’t get over the relief it has brought my skin. Was battling Eczema. This product not only has a pleasant smell, but it certainly improved my arms. I can finally get a good night’s sleep without bailing out of bed to “stop the itching.” This product stopped the itching and is clearing up the Eczema. Thank you, Aveeno!

Perfect All-Over Winter Moisturizer

Needed a little something extra this Winterfor dry skin and have just discovered a newall-around moisturizer! This product is verylight and seems to work best on my face …Its also non-greasy, so if you need a littleextra layer, the skin absorbs it very well …I’m adding this to my daily Winter routine!

Love love love this stuff!

I’ve only had this cream for a few days, but I’m already in love. The scent isn’t as strong as people have said, and the scent itself is actually quite light and sweet. It feels a tad watery, but once it’s actually rubbed in my skin feels amazing. It stays on for quite a while too, and what surprised me is how little is actually needed to cover a large area. I think I’ve found my match!

Good but do not love it

Delivered on time and great packaging. I bought it as a substitute to the Shea butter Neutrogena that is VERY expensive, it is good for the price but if you can afford it buy Neutrogena.

Donna Evansville, IN

Smells amazing

This is a great product that I enjoy very much. It is somewhat expensive but it is worth it. It is thick and rich and smells wonderful.

I am "addicted" to shower gels and have tried many different brands and types. I decided to try this one; it has everyhing I am looking for in a gel: need to use very little on a bath poof to clean your entire body, light but noticeable scent, soothing, and moisturizing. I feel it is comparable to others I have used that are far more expensive. I will be ordering more!!!

Great lightweight-medium moisturizer

I am a pregnant woman with fair, sensitive skin and I also have eczema. This body cream helps my rough spots from eczema and it also soothes my legs after shaving. For my pregnant belly it temporarily takes the itch away, but I wouldn’t consider it a heavy cream for say end of pregnancy itchiness or drier weather. Overall, I think this is a good daily moisturizer, but not a heavy cream for really dry skin.

Smells Good

I really enjoy using this body wash because it exfoliates as it cleans which leaves your skin super soft. I don’t have to use lotion everyday when I use this wash.

Ashleigh Anacoco, LA

Foamy with nice aroma

Aveeno Positively Nourishing Calming Body Wash foams and has a nice aroma. I am allergic to many products and this does not seem to be one of them. I like it and I will buy it again when it’s gone. I recommend it.

Laura Roma, TX

Has a Nice Feel

It feels smooth is a bit greasy but does a nice job hydrating the skin. Lasts for some time and so has this container. Give it a try see what you think.

Angelita Mammoth, AZ

lovely smell and works great

lovely smell and works great!I am so sensitive to smells and this product is really my favorite Aveeno product.

Jannie Graysville, GA

Not As Moisturizing As the Lotion

I purchased this based on another review that said this would be better for dry skin than the Aveeno Daily Lotion. This was not true for my skin. I had to use a ton of this to get enough moisture into my skin and the jar only lasted about 5-6 applications. Also, sticking my hand into a jar and having a glop to spread around was a mess.I would not recommend this as a better moisturizer than the daily lotion. I went back to my tried and true Aveeno Daily Lotion and am very happy.

Susan Kalama, WA

It’s all right

A bit heavy and waxy, feels sticky after application for quite a while, but it does moisturize well. The scent is a little heavy for my taste. Very good on winter-dry legs and feet though!

Difficult to Dispense

(review by wife)Solid product, nice fragrance for the shower that leaves a light scent on skin, delivers moisture without the grease, Very aveeno of it.There is ONE big big annoyance.. the product gets "stuck" in the cap after a couple uses. I would have to uncap, fill cap with water and try to clear our the product, then recap onto bottle. At a point, i dispensed the product by just uncapping at each use.For that 1 reason, i stopped purchasing this body wash

Anastasia White Sulphur Springs, MT


I read the reviews on this product and was not sure if I would like it. I tend to get very dry skin, especially on my legs. Does not matter if it is summer or winter, This works very well, not too greasy for me and smells good. It is a little like cocoa butter, but not overwhelming.

Etta Anchorville, MI

positively devine

This review is for Hydrating Fig + Shea Butter.The scent is devine. Light and sweet but not overpowering. I use it with an exfoliating cloth and my skin feels clean, soft and fresh after each shower. I wish they made a lotion in this scent.

Tania Munson, PA

Smells good, good for shaving

It smells so nice. It cleans very well. And I also use this product for shaving and it seems to do a very good job. No nicks and it keeps the skin soft and smooth.

Barbara Sumrall, MS


Love the scent and the gentleness of the formula. I’ll keep on buying this. Aveeno has always put out good products and this is just another…I’m happy with this body wash.

Gina Glenolden, PA

Great Daily Scrub Body Wash

This is a great body wash – the scrub is gentle enough to be used every day. The scent is pleasant, but not strong. It isn’t a strong lingering scent, which I like in a body wash. All Aveeno products are great and this one is no exception!

Elnora Smithfield, WV

Not for me

Its okay, but I wouldnt buy it again. Dried my skin out and wasnt great. I switched to a less toxic brand that doesnt have all the harsh chemicals in it.

Joni Willisville, AR

nice balance between a butter and a cream

This is a bit thicker than most creams I have used but not as thick or heavy as a butter.The smell is nice and not at all overpowering (I tend not to like scented products).I recently came back to Hawaii with a sunburn. The night of the sun burn I put this on rather thickly. That night my skin was not nearly as sensitive as I thought it would be given the redness of my skin.I use this for my dry areas (hands, feet, knees, elbows…) but is also a great all over moisturizer. It absorbs quickly and does not leave a greasy feeling however it also does not just disappear as if nothing was used at all.

Simply Wonderful

Aveeno makes great products period. This was something quite indulgent, light but not greasy. My husband even tried it and like it!

Berta Berkshire, NY

very nice texture and great price

Aveeno Positively Nourishing Skincare is not as moisturizing as some body butters that I’ve tried but it has a very nice texture that’s not greasy like many similar products are. The price is fantastic so even though it might not moisturize quite as much it makes up for that with the price. For $6 I would easily buy this again.

Katrina Cottonton, AL

Great Exfoliating Body Wash

I love Aveeno products as they have a focus on sensitive skin, which I have. This product has a great smell, effective exfoliating, and suds decently.A great product and worth a try.

Leslie Brooklyn, KY

Imelda Kintyre, ND

Wow, nice!

Like this product a lot…absorbs quickly, no strong smell of any sort. Light and not greasy, would recommend for sure.

Lesley Garrison, MD

My wife and I love this product.

Smells wonderful, and leaves you feeling soft and clean. I have purchased this product, and the other variety’s and each of them have been top notch.

Has Not Worked as Well as I Hoped

Aveeno Positively Nourishing Whipped Souffle Body Cream, 6 ounce. This is powered, its makers state by dermatologist-recommended active naturals colloidal oatmeal. It also contains natural antioxidants shea and cocoa butters; vanilla and fruit oil for a pleasant fragrance, and the usual chemical stew. Its makers claim it will soften, moisturize, nourish and protect the skin from free radicals, for up to 24 hours.I have been using it for a few weeks now, decided to try it after a good experience with Aveeno Active Naturals Skin Relief, (see my review on its product page). My hands had been doing really, really well, until I decided to try gel nail polish. As everyone says, the gel nail polish looked spectacular, and lasted much longer than a regular manicure. But suddenly my right hand was in trouble, very dry, skin cracking and peeling. So I decided to try this product. So far it has not worked as well as I hoped; I prefer its sister product.
