Aveeno is generally a brand that I trust. I like and use their green label oatmeal moisturizer and blue label shaving cream. I wanted to pick up some body wash from the drug store across the street and I thought aveeno would be a good choice. Wrong. First issue, this is not unscented. It smells like floor cleaner. At first I thought maybe someone replaced the product with something else as a gag, but I noticed that citric acid was one of the ingredients listed. The smell, although ephemeral, resembles a putrid combination of sugary candy, anti-septic bathroom, and orange-flavored crystal light. Disgusting. Secondly, the texture is slimy and awful. It lingers on your skin even after you rinse with water. And upon exiting the shower, my skin felt tacky and itchy. Thirdly, the product just looked gross and I have no motivation to endure a gross looking product when it fails at everything else. When I read that a body wash is moisturizing and soothing I expect something pearlescent, creamy, and luxuriant not a grey gel slime with the consistency of mucus.
What the heck Aveeno. This product is TERRIBLE. First and last time I use this. I’m returning it to the store today.
No, I would not recommend this product
