A few weeks ago, I tweeted about how one of the worst parts of winter for me is my dry skin. It's so bad. Between the frigid wind, cold temps, and constant hand washing at work, my skin is always dry and cracking in the winter time. I'll even try and remember to wear gloves, but that doesn't always happen. Well, one afternoon I got a tweet from Vaseline saying that they were interested in helping make winter more enjoyable for me. And I thought, why not?!
Yesterday afternoon I got to pick up a package from Vaseline. This box quickly made Monday much better and I rushed home to open it. I really was only expecting some lotion, but got so much more! First, I opened it up to find a hand-written note. Then, I discovered the rest of the goodies within the bubble wrap!
Can I just tell you how excited I am about that candle up there? I flipped out when I saw that it was Vanilla Bean. That is one of my favorite scents! I can't wait to start burning it. Now, I've tried a lot of different hand lotions and cremes to combat dry skin and I've tried to get in the routine of applying on a daily, routine basis. But, that doesn't always happen. Some cremes I've found to be too thick and some lotions not thick enough or too greasy. And then I can't pick up anything and well, that just isn't fun either. Vaseline was a brand that I've never thought to try. I've always assumed that it would be too greasy. And while I want my hands to be moisturized and soft, I don't want them to be wet. So, I was really interested to see how this would work out.
The smell is fantastic and the lotion is so smooth. I was only going to apply to my hands at first, but then I just kept going and gave my arms some love. Didn't want them to feel left out. Remember, my main thing was I thought this stuff was going to be too greasy. I was wrong.
You definitely don't need a lot, a little goes a ways, but it wasn't greasy like I was expecting. This intensive care line is supposed to have 10x the deep healing power over dryness. Although winter is almost gone and spring is around the corner, my skin is in definite need of some healing and restoration. Not only do my hands stay dry from constant washing at work, I suffer from keratosis pilaris. This is fairly common and causes rough, small acne-like patches around the body. It's more frustrating than anything, but my skin doesn't always feel the smoothest. While I don't expect this lotion to improve or rid my body of KP, I do think it will help keep my body moisturized and feeling hydrated. Definitely adding it to my daily skin routine.

Vaseline did not pay me for this review. I was given a free sample and simply wanted to rave about it. :)
