I have used this name brand and the CVS brand version of creamy petroleum jelly. If you've ever irritated your skin with acne meds or chemical exfoliants, sunburned or had dry skin, this should work amazing! I had all of the above, (AHA, BP, sunburn and dry skin due to Celiac Disease). This is so inert, non-irritating and smells great--not heavy. I use the OCM with 50% castor oil and 50% Neutrogena sesame oil. Then use only a dab of Alpha Hydrox 10% Enhanced lotion mixed with Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream. Top it off with a pea-sized amount of this creamy skin protectant. I use SPF 25 during the day. I will buy this forever! Healed my skin in 4 days. Excellent primer for MMU.
I absolutely adore this moisturizer!! I have very sensitive skin that gets clogged easily and I have redness in my face. My face gets really dry and flaky so easily and this moisturizer is the only thing I use! It never breaks me out (if anything it heals acne) and it keeps me moisturized forever!
I simply put on a small amount of an spf moisturizer and then I put some creamy jelly on my hands and wipe it around then I will pat it on my face and let it sink it. I then follow up with any makeup I feel like wearing for the day and my skin stays soft and moisturized all day. I use this at night as well!
I only wish this came in a smaller 1oz tube as well to use for traveling!!!! Maybe they will someday :)
I <3 vaseline! continued >>
Wow - HG lotion and cream! I have all kinds of stuff around the house and in my car (like Amlactin, Eucerin, Udderly Smooth, Main n' Tail Hoofmaker, various health food store creams...) to combat my dry skin and nothing was working that great. Then I found had an old tube of creamy petroleum jelly (like 10 years old) from the DollarTree and I used some. Poof! I was converted. Suddenly my skin is soft and supple, not greasy. I can not resist using it on my face and around my eyes. I have been using it all over for several weeks and my skin never felt better. I bought more at the DollarTree - they have two versions, one by Personal Care, and the other I guess is generic - it's black and white, dist. by Greenbrier and has a slightly milder scent. Both are great.
If you hate body lotions/creams and are too lazy to use them but have awful, scaly dry skin like yours truly, please buy this. It is not the least greasy moisturizer I've ever used - it's just not greasy at all. It's not one of those disappearing moisturizers that evaporates into the air or slowly settles into the skin. It just binds to your skin, the skin eats it up, who knows what is going on here but it is great fun and very effective. It has a consistency slightly softer than regular Vaseline and zero grease factor. My other favorite disappearing-act of a moisturizer is Nivea Soft, but that is much lighter and more "wet" in terms of formula and texture. This Vaseline Deep Moisture cream is thick and rich, making it perfect for the body and hands, although I may be tempted to try this on my face as well. Probably the least inexpensive and effective drugstore moisturizer out there along with Nivea Soft. Buy it. There is just no way I can see anyone going wrong with this. I knew there was reason I'm not into body lotions/creams - it is because this exists and it's all anyone really needs.
This is my chapped/cracked hand HG! (This and Aquafor). I find it hard to use during the day, because it stays too greasy to use it at work--however, use it at night and wake up with awesome hands and nails! It DOES give lasting moisturization, too! Awesome stuff! (Am allergic to everything, and this gives NO negative reaction.)
The BEST moisturizer and cheap too! When my skin is so dry it hurts, I can put this on without fear of stinging. Also, it's one of the few products I can use that will actually soothe itchiness from bug bites. I use it on my face (under makeup) daily and at night, and it doesn't break me out. It can get greasy if you apply too much, but if you wipe off the excess with a tissue you should be fine. I've been using the 4.5 oz tube, and after almost 3 months, it's still lasting me! If they ever discontinue this product I'm screwed!
I like this! I picked up a 4oz tube for only $3 at a local walmart. It's very creamy, moisturizes great, & doesn't smell rancid like some non-scented lotions do. I'd definitely repurchase. continued >>
The full name of this product is Deep Moisture Creamy Formula. It's a white cream that comes in a tube. It's fragrance-free and is advertised to heal severely dry skin and provide 18 hour moisturization. It makes a great hand cream for dry to very dry skin. I've also used it on my face as a moisturizer.
Best lotion for my dry hands and feet I have ever used. It can be greasy if you use too much but it sinks in well. Has made my lizard hands better than ever. OMG soooo cheap too.
This is the ONLY thing anyone in my house uses. It works so incredibly well. It can be a bit oily for your face, so don't use it in the morning before you go outside at ALL. Use it at night after you cleanse or exfoliate and you will wake up with baby soft skin. I guarantee it. It really soaks into your skin and my hands are a completely different texture since I started using it.
It says it's fragrance free, and I know this will sounds insane, but has anyone owned one of those cupcake dolls as a child? It smells like one of those!
