Vaseline is amazing. My mother swears by it, and her skin is flawless. I recently moved into an apartment with really bad water that's been drying my hair and skin out horribly. I was initially using lotion from BBW, thinking that at $12 a bottle it should work better than a $3 bottle of Vaseline. My skin was still uncomfortable, and I began developing red splotches of dry skin all over. I finally smartened up and started using Vaseline and my skin feels so much better. The dry patches have cleared up and my skin feels comfortable again. Definitely recommend trying this. If you're not sure, they make sample sizes for $1 to try before you buy the big bottle. =)
This has been my favorite basic moisturizer for many years. They have tweaked the name of it along the way, but it remains an amazingly moisturizing lotion that I use for body, hands, feet, and in the winter, even on my face.
There is no fragrance added to this, so it is great for sensitive skin. I have never had any problem with this causing itching or irritation. The smell of it does not interfere with any other products you may use. It is a nice thick lotion, not runny like some of the other Vaseline lotions are. It does not leave my skin feeling greasy or tacky. It does a great job of healing and preventing dryness. In the winter, when my face gets dry, flaky, and easily irritated, I can use this as a facial moisturizer (usually at night) and it never stings or causes breakouts.
I sometimes buy more expensive lotions, but this is always my standby, and the one I buy most. When I buy something that costs more, I usually regret it, because I quickly realize that the higher price tag does not translate into a better performing product. I keep a large bottle of this in the bathroom, kitchen and bedroom, and also carry a small tube in my purse, so I always have it handy. It is priced very reasonably, and they always seem to run coupons for it, too.
All in all, it's a wonderful product that does what it says, for a very good price.
If, like me, you have dry skin problems like eczema, then please consider trying this lotion. I find it really works in managing dry skin. I found it far more effective than medicinal creams like aqueous cream, or diprobase, epiderm etc. It alleviated the dry skin/eczema patches on my inside elbows, and completely got rid of a dry patch on my hand. In fact, I no longer need to use my prescription steroid cream so much any more. After using it and being amazed at the results, I gave a bottle of it to my father (whose dry skin I've inherited), and he too was pleased with the results - his dry skin being far more severe than mine. And he is never pleased with anything new these days! I use it in conjunction with other moisturisers, like Jergens or Palmers, as I don't think it makes my skin look as cosmetically nice these do - probably because they are scented, and a light golden brown colour, and the Vaseline is a white colour with a clinical smell. I tend to use the Vaseline on my arms, where the problem areas are, and the other creams on my legs and torso.
This is a great lotion - it moisturizes well, is not too thick/thin, and is not greasy at all. My skin (especially my legs) just soak it right on up!
I have a major concern with it though - it's got parabens and Triethanolamine which aren't good ingredients at all. Therefore, I will not be repurchasing this.
Also, the scent is a turn-off as it smells much like glue! However, it fades away when absorbed into the skin and unfragranced lotions are always a good thing.
This white moisturizing lotion is hypoallergenic and unfragranced. It contains glycerin to increase moisture and petrolatum to keep in moisture. It does a great job of moisturizing drier body skin. I've also used it on my face as a moisturizer.
It definitely does what its title says.....It LOCKS in the moisture and makes my skin feels super soft!! The container is really transportable and easy to use..It's a good basic moisturizer with no overwhelming fragrance or unnecessary oils and such...
This is my #1 body lotion. I have sensitive skin and this stuff is great. I tried the "clinical therapy" and I actually prefer this lotion more. It has a great scent and absorbs quickly. It also leaves me feeling moisturized better. This is the best lotion I have found in years!
this lotion is so so for me.. i really like the smell though but it doesnt really moisturize my dry skin.. i think this is great for summer but in winter this is a big no for me..
This is my go-to body lotion. It sinks in fast, makes my skin feel silky, and the moisture stays put all day. It never feels greasy and oily and I like the fact that it is pretty much unscented.
Only problem is that I can't find it anywhere in the shops. Where has it gone?!
WONDERFUL! I sunless tan and I need a great lotion to lock in moisture. This stuff is AMAZING!!!
