For many of us throughout the U.S., 2014/15 has been a brutal winter, and dry skin/eczema have been running rampant.
Vaseline has always had great products for moisturizing and protecting skin, but with their latest product Vaseline Intensive Care Healing Serum, Deep Repair, they've upgraded and IMPROVED on the basic body lotion experience.
First, the texture of the product is truly unique. It has a bit of a serum feel, but it's heavier with a silky creamy body butter effect. The serum sank into my skin immediately and gave it a beautiful sheen with no stickiness or greasy feeling.
Now, the next feature of the product is a love or hate one, I think. It's heavily fragranced, but in my opinion, it's very elegant and a statement maker. The scent is a bold floral with a touch of spice (the scent notes are amber, jasmine, and sandalwood) - and the faintest trace of cocoa butter. It's unlike anything Vaseline has ever done, and I loved it. It made the whole experience of applying it a bit more luxurious for me. While the fragrance is prominent upon application, I would not say it lingered very heavily over the course of the day, and it didn't really interfere with any additional fragrance I applied later after my morning shower.
The Healing Serum works wonders on dry legs, cracked. flakey feet, elbows and even dry hands (because it doesn't leave any greasiness that would get on papers, the phone, etc during your daily activities). I also found it was gentle enough for dry patches caused by mild eczema and itchy skin (despite the added fragrance). The effects of the moisturizing latest all day for me, and into the next one, for some areas of my body like my arms and upper body, too.
If you really need to repair and treat your body skin after this winter, or just have chronically dry body skin - and want a nice fragrance to go along with it, I can't recommend Vaseline Intensive Care Healing Serum, Deep Repair, highly enough! You might want to stock up on this one. (It's under $8) :) - RLB
