Aveeno Skin Relief Healing Ointment

Aveeno's new Skin Relief Healing Ointment ($7.99 - $9.99; Press Sample) is a petrolatum-based, multipurpose, product that helps heal and protect dry, chapped skin. It also claims to nourish and soothe skin & provide 24 hour moisture.

Now, when I think of the word 'Ointment', something with a terribly sticky texture comes to my mind, but I was pleasantly surprised at how very nice this product was to work with (think Vaseline with a far less sticky, a little more slick texture). It has a thick, gel like texture, absolutely no scent and you only need a dab of it for dry spots. It is slightly sticky, but spreads well and absorbs quite well after massaging in. There's a slight film left behind by the product, but that doesn't bother me. So far, I've tried it on my elbows and feet and absolutely love the instant moisture fix it provides. I had terribly dry, cracked feet and this one made them look and feel better within 2-3 uses. Also since it is concentrated and thick, I needed only the smallest amount and I'm sure the 3oz tube will last me ages. The Skin Relief Healing Ointment is just what it is described to be - healing  soothing and instantly moisturizing. It is petrolatum based, so if you are looking for something a little more natural, this may not be it. But, if you are looking for an effective, multi-tasker and a good skin protectant for dry areas in general, this is an excellent one to have handy! 

Aveeno Skin Relief Healing Ointment also contains colloidal oat meal for skin relief and oat oil to moisturize and is free of fragrance, dye & lanolin, and gentle enough for sensitive skin. 

Available at national food, drug and mass merchandisers nationwide.
