I haven't used Vaseline in years, but my fiance has this as a staple on his bathroom counter. It actually absorbs nicely, heals my hands and has a very light scent. I've also used it after getting out of the shower and my skin feels great afterwards.
I like this because of the aloe in it which is very soothing towards the skin. I don't think it does as much as far as smoothness but it does provide optimal moisture. Just as it claims, it absorbs very quickly, leaving behind a mint, cool feeling. I like to use Vaseline's conditioning lotion (can't remember the exact name) for smoothness, packing on many layers. Anyways, this aloe lotion is definitely worth the price. The aloe gives it more uses than one. Once I suffered from facial redness from an acne product gone bad and I dabbed a bit of this lotion onto my face, careful not to put too much. The redness settled down soon enough. I wouldn't be surprised if you could use this lotion to help heal minor sunburns if you don't have aloe vera. I really like this lotion, my only complaint is that I wish it did more conditioning for smoothness.
I love the scent of this lotion! It's so fresh and clean. I only use this as a body lotion in the summertime, as it is a light lotion after all, but I do use this throughout the year as a hand lotion. It's non-greasy, absorbs quickly and the scent fades after application. I will buy this foreverrrrrr.
holy grail body lotion! I buy this over and over and i dont think ill stop buying. It comes in a HUGE bottle (375mL) which lasts me about 4-5 months used everyday.
It's a very light, non-greasy/sticky lotion that absorbs into your skin right away with a slight cooling sensation.The scent is also very light and refreshing... sort of a blend between cucumber & green tea (to me). It has aloe leaf juice, vitamin E, sunflower seed oil and cucumber fruit extract.
2 THUMBS UP! continued >>
Love this STUFF! I bought it on Sale and got the one with SPF 15 in it because I walk alot on my lunch...
I have to say.. this lotion is soooo refreshing and really keeps the skin moisturized throught the day without it ever becoming sticky.. will keep buying for the summer!
Update: I had to change my rating of this product because I found that the scent turns strangely sour on me when I perspire. It's like sour milk. I smell like a baby that's been spitting up on itself all day. Weird. o_O
I'm really surprised at how much I like this lotion because so far I haven't had much luck with Vaseline brand lotions.
We're currently going through a little "heat wave" where I live at. It's into the upper 80s and my lovely lovely landlord still has the HEAT ON! >_< So it's about 90 degrees in my home even with the AC blasting. I need to shower repeatedly which dries out my already dry skin. I had a summer staple lotion(Aveeno Creamy Oil) but while it's nice and light, it isn't moisturizing enough for what I'm dealing with right now.
I used this lotion after bathing with the Dove Go Fresh body wash in Green Tea & Cucumber and my skin feels soft, moisturized, and smells fresh and clean.
This lotion actually does what it says!!! - gives good moisture, but is not sticky or heavy(no sweating after applying - I hate that), and even leaves a nice fresh scent.
Best part? It was only $2.99 - and not even on sale!
Will definitely repurchase.
It's gonna be my new summer staple lotion! :-) continued >>
I love this lotion. It's so light and beautifully scented. It absorbs real quick and isn't sticky at all.
I've only used this three times and I'm amazed at how improved my skin looks. It really smooths it out and gives amazing glow.
I like using this for my body...but normally I would use something a bit more intensive for my hands cuz they get too dry and need something more moisturizing to combat the dryness...
UPDATE: After continuous use, weirdly, this lotion kind of suffocated my skin, dulled it and made it flake! I stopped using it and my skin is back to normal. So unfortunately won't be repurchasing this :(
I love the scent of this lotion! It's really non-sticky and very moisturizing. I also love that the packaging comes with a pump and this is cheap compare to other brands.
I was in Hawaii and got sunburned so I went to grab a bottle of cheap aloe cream. This felt so cooling and helped alleviate the pain. I love the pump dispenser and how the cream is smooth and not sticky. It sinks into your skin quickly and feel very nice. I would definately repurchase in the summer
I bought this in 2006, in the largest size available, which comes in a pump. I paid about SGD5.50 for 725 ml. For this price, nothing comes close.
Fast forward 4 years, I still have a quarter of the lotion left, and Vaseline has even changed the packaging.
It is extremely light, and it never ever leaves a greasy and sticky after feel. It absorbs almost immediately, therefore making this the ideal on-the-go lotion.
Despite it being a light lotion, it does do its job well, leaving my dry legs moisturised.
The light cucumber/melon scent is refreshing, and not too cloying or overwhelming like some of the other lotions I own.
This would be a wonderful lotion for those living in tropical, humid countries, and for others, would be the perfect lotion for summer.
