Reviews for Dry Skin Conditioning Lotion by Vaseline Intensive Care

A "must have" in the home.
I can remember the name "Vaseline" as far back as the late 1970's. My elder sister used it in her family, where I was staying, and now it is an essential item in my home. I recall that there was always two kinds of body lotion to choose from; the one that came in a light green coloured bottle and the one that came in a light yellow one. I always preferred the yellow one because of its fragrance.
Vaseline Dry Skin Conditioning Lotion is the one that comes in the light yellow plastic bottle. The 750ml bottle that my family is currently using has a dark blue dispenser top while the rest of the bottle is light yellow.
I find the fragrance of this particular lotion more to my liking because it lacks the "greeness" of the Aloe Vera containing one. The lotion itself is fairly light, non-greasy and absorbs readily into the skin keeping it lightly fragranced, smooth and supple.
I still recall the old Vaseline TV advertisements where a brown dried up maple leaf is suddenly transformed into a soft fresh green leaf when Vaseline Lotion is applied. The skin on my arm once felt and looked like this "brown leaf" after spending some days out in the sun. However, after applying this lotion and continuing to do so for a few days, I noticed that the skin on my arm regained its fine appearance and plumpness. Now, whenever my husband spends a bit too much time out in the sun and gets sun burnt, I immediately reach for this Vaseline Lotion to soothe his skin and help repair the damage done. Not only does it relieve his sun burn but it aids his sun burned skin to recover more quickly.
My household will never be without a bottle of Vaseline Dry Skin Conditioning Lotion in our house. We consider it a true skin's lifesaver and it genuinely deserves a 5 Star Rating.

I always have plenty of little travel tubes of this lotion scattered in my bag, at the office etc. It absorbs quickly leaving no greasiness. It has a very faint perfume which is quite pleasant. My job involves a lot of handwashing, and this has kept my hands moisturized and free from unsightly cracks.

Surprising New Discovery
I have spotted Vaseline's trademark yellow bottle for years whilst shopping - supermarkets, chemists - even some service stations, but not ever purchased or considered using until now.
The scent is not overwhelming, it effectively moisturisers without being overly greasy and is always available for purchase (sometimes in the most unlikely of places!).
I am presently half way through my first bottle, and believe Vaseline Total Moisturiser - Dry Skin will become a staple in my bathroom cupboard.

Inexpensive yet impressive.
This has got to be one of the best if not the best value for money moisturiser around. I use it everyday straight after my shower and I can honestly say my skin has never been better. I bought the 400 ml bottle but will need to purchase the larger 750ml one as my 2 teenage daughters have discovered just how good this lotion is and now have dumped their Palmers and Dove ones and are using my Vaseline one instead.

Staple moisturiser for face and body!
I use this mainly on my face before i apply primer and it works well to hydrate my skin and leave it soft and smooth all day. Unlike most other moisturisers for very dry skin, it dries almost instantly and leaves your skin feeling soft and clean without any oily/greasy feeling. You only need a very small amount of the product which makes it last for ages! Once i run out i'll definitely be buying another.

This product is so hydrating and works almost instantly. I aim to use this everyday and once you use it for a week non-stop you can really see a difference. I love that it's non greasy, a smooth consistency and it's easy to rub in. I love the scent and it's like I'm wearing perfume! It is extremely worth it and it lasts a long time. It does exactly what the packaging says it does and is a very reliable product. The pump is so convenient if you are on-the-go and so it doesn't get under your nails like creams you need to dig out of the container. It is great for all skin types, as it is for cracking dry skin.

My Holy grail for body moisturiser, I continuously buy this and even have backups of this. It sinks into the skin reasonably fast and has a pleasant smell. I use this in the winter and use the aloe vera one in summer. It's cheap and does the job, absolutely love it and can't live without it!

I have been using this lotion now for about a month. My skin is noticeably smoother. Great value for money in a large yellow pump bottle. I bought a 1.5L bottle as I use it morning & night. Lovely fresh fragrance & doesn't leave that greasy feeling as it absorbs well into the skin.

I'm the Queen of Body Lotions, you name it, I've probably tried it! This one is an old favourite that I have kept coming back to for many many years. The formula has changed a little over the years, but its still a great product. Deeply moisturising, non greasy and has a soft pleasant scent that isn't too overpowering. It absorbs quickly and doesn't leave a sticky greasy residue. I also love the fact that it is available as a convenient pump pack, as well as in a small tube for your handbag. This will continue to be a
frequent purchase for me.

This is one of my favourite moisturisers, it absorbs quickly without leaving a greasy/oily feeling on my skin. After using this for a week my skin has felt better than ever!
