Love love love this. Dirt dirt cheap. Doesn't break me out or aggravate my rosacea. SUPER MOISTURIZING. In the winter, I put this on my face at night with a layer of argan oil underneath and I wake up with baby soft skin. DO NOT FEAR THE PETROLATUM! LOL
I love this stuff! And I live in hot, dry, dry Vegas! I like to pat a thin, thin layer under my eyes and on other areas that are prone to dryness, like my neck. Wonderful stuff and so cheap!
Okay, I just got this because of the dry skin I have after my night time medication. For now I am testing it out on my chin just to make sure it does not break me out. I love it already. I love creamy, heavy moisturizer that isn't too oily --- this is perfect. It's moisturizing and it gets the job done. No scent, nothing. I love that it is is infused with Vitamin E. It works great under my eyes before I apply concealer -- it leaves the area nice and dewy throughout the day. I pray to God I can use this all over my face but for now I am just testing it out -- being safe.
I have been having trouble with my dry skin forever. I have had this in my drawer for use on my hands. I decided to use this on my face and holy cow! My skin looks so good...it hasn't looked this good in over ten years. I don't have to wear makeup it looks that good. It has help clear redness and my pores have shrunk. I was having problems finding makeup that would last on my skin, within a few hours makeup would disappear. Well, my poor skin was drinking in whatever it could for moisture. I now have a very simple skin routine and my skin looks great without makeup and the makeup I thought wasn't working now looks amazing. You gotta love it when the solution is something so simple and inexpensive.
I have seborrheic dermatitis, oily acne prone and sensitive skin on my face. so you can imagine how difficult it is to find a good moisturizer for hydration. I totally love this lotion, I dont think i have ever loved as much as I do with this lotion. I put it on at night and layer it with aquaphor. it works great.
i had to learn on my own and i have spent hundreds of dollars with lots of trial and errors. who could have imagine that something so cheap could work that well?
Randomly picked this up on vacation when i was a teenager. I didn't like it back then, but at that time i was new to tazorac and skincare routines. i also had oilier skin, which has evened out.
it's been a few years and i had this tube in storage. couldn't bring myself to toss it after i saw the reviews here. it may even be expired.
the reason i'm reusing it is because cetaphil cream was breaking me out, so i decided to try olay's beauty lotion, which was horrible. i randomly used this, and am pleased i did:
- i have combination skin, and i'm prone to closed comedones. i'm taking tazorac cream and spironolactone to maintain breakouts.
-the texture is light, thicker than lotion, but not entirely cream. it's a fluffy sort of cream, and easy to apply.
-once applied, it take a few mins to sink in entirely. but i don't feel as if there's a heavy weight on my face. skin feels comforted, and any peeling or flaking is covered up.
-has a light smell, but doable. i personally cannot handle strong scents. it will pass after the moisturizer fully absorbs.
i can't put this on my lips though, because then i start tasting what i smell.
-I like using this even though it's summer. then again, i stay in an air conditioned room for the most part. this may be even better in the winter, but who knows.
Conclusion: i am relying on this right now, and i like it. i will buy again.
I changed the rating from 4 to 2.
I realized in the heat, when i stayed out, that the sweat wouldn't perspire normally. for instance, the sweat would adhere to my skin.
after a couple of hours my face is pretty oily. compared to cetaphil cream this is much worse.
i also find that i'm breaking out in closed comedones.
Conclusion: when it's winter and the weather is harsher this may prove to be useful, but i don't wish to use this again because i feel that i will still look oily and will be prone to breaking out. as for my body, i prefer using baby oil.
I bought this one morning on my way to work after running out of my Vichy Balm. It soothes the after effects of Retin-A by laying down a barrier on skin.
I work in a very very cold environment (40 degrees F) and I need something to protect and soothe.
This makes a suitable substitute for cocoa butter, shea butter, my Vichy Balm or any kind of oil. The reason I like it more is because it is cheap, easy to find, it smells great, and it doesn't clog me or break me out.
* My Skin - Normal to dry, drier in the winter with flakes and dry spots, occasional acne
* Review - I discovered this creamy version of Vaseline only recently and honest to goodness, where has this been all of my life? Iíve always been a fan of good ole-fashioned Vaseline but this creamy formula Vaseline is even better. Itís not greasy / oily at all, it absorbs quickly and it does the job marvelously. Works like a charm on dry skin, dry hands and when I apply it on my face; my skin feels like it is baby soft again. Nothing feels more satisfying than having pillow-soft lips after applying this creamy formula on my lips. I wish this would also come in a lip balm size version, it would be so perfect for on the go lip moisture!
* Cons - Unfortunately, this is not available here in Belgium or anywhere in the EU.
* Verdict - This is truly my HG all-around moisturizer and using it has made a dramatic, significant difference in my skin. I will happily repurchase forever. Highly recommended.
LOVE LOVE LOVE this product!!! Vaseline creamy is an excellent moisturizer for my very dry, sensitive skin. I have tried almost every moisturizer known to woman and was never satisfied until I found this. I use it on my face, hands and body (and also get many compliments on my beautiful, soft skin). Try it... you will not be disappointed!! (BONUS: the price is around $3.25 at Walmart.....the value can't be beat)
