We won’t be concocting crazy home remedies. I won’t be suggested you sit far away from your toasty fireplace, change your diet, exfoliate with food or smear honey on your face. Uh, no thanks. I will, however, suggest you spend $4.58 on this bottle of magic to heal your dry skin.
It’s water based, which means it’s not thick or heavy. It’s unscented, meaning it won’t compete with your perfume. It’s available at your drugstore. Hello convenient and inexpensive. And it’s DS approved. Stock up. Stock up now.
My skin is super dry. Who’s isn’t? I swam for 20 years and I only moisturized when my skin felt dry. Palm to face. Cut to me at 27 with wrinkles and exceptionally dry skins. That’s not cute on anyone. So when I heard my forever-favorite, Vaseline, launched a new lotion I knocked 5 bottles into my CVS basket and called it a day. Real life, I couldn’t even wait for IZEA to send this Vaseline kit to review the product. That’s how much of a Vaseline freak I am. I have this little guy in my purse, this tub on my desk at work, this can in my car, this bottle in my bathroom, and this bottle on my nightstand.
So what makes this particular lotion different? Well, quite frankly it’s magic. It’s clinically proven to heal dry skin in 5 days and your skin feels quenched immediately. Now, I know everyone is different and people prefer different types of lotions but if you prefer a light, water-based, unscented lotion like this girl, then this is the bottle for you.
You know that feeling you get when you find a really great roduct that actually does what it says it’s going to do and it’s not like… $100? That feeling is victory, my friends. And how does a victor celebrate? By hoarding.
Vaseline has been healing scaly legs and soothing cracked heels since the dawn of time. Alright, maybe not the dawn of time but it’s been around since I was putting it on my shoulders to keep my racing suit from rubbing. Meet suits were always smaller than practice suits. Genius? No. Effective? Yes. Painful? Holy hell. I digress. Vaseline has. been. around. and while I’m sure effective marketing can be attributed to their success, they’re still around because their product is effective. And perhaps most importantly, can be found at any drugstore.
I’ve had the Vaseline petroleum jelly in my swim bag since I was 10. I flew like lightning to Giant that summer I heard rumors on the pool deck about that aloe lotion that had just hit the shelves. And now I’ve got this stashed in every bucket, basket, and tote bag in my apartment. I was charged with the 5-day challenge and knew my skin would be transformed in those 5 days.
The best part? I feel better. My skin is quenched and I don’t feel inconvenienced by spending those extra 30 minutes moisturizing. And honestly, if I can get all that out of one product? I’m in.
