      A great body lotion

      I bought the Vaseline Sheer Infusion 200ml body lotion from Tesco a while back. I wanted a moisturiser as my hands kept feeling dry and I wanted one that would work well and would last a while.

      I found this in the clearance section, I think at £1.50. However, looking up when I got home, it was (if I remember right) about £5 I think. It is over £6 on Amazon at the time of writing this. In my opinion, that's expensive and if it hadn't been reduced I certainly wouldn't have bought it at full price.

      However, it is a really great body lotion and it does last a long time. It claims to have vitamin burst which is supposed to help your skin more. It is a fairly thick lotion and it soaks in quickly which is always good.

      It smells pretty nice too. It's quite a strong smell when you first put it on but it soon fades. You can still smell it for a while after putting it on, but it's not a really strong smell.

      The bottle has a simple flip lid which is easy to open. The bottle stands on the lid so even when you've used most of the lotion it stills comes out fairly easily. Nothing more annoying than spending ages trying to squeeze out lotion from the bottom of a bottle!

      Overall this is a quick drying body lotion that really moisturises your skin and it lasts quite a while too. It is well worth buying if you can find it on offer!

      Best yet I think!

      I have just come to the end of a 200ml tube of Vaseline sheer infusion and I think I may be the biggest fan of this product! It ticked all the boxes for me for smell, consistency, performance, price and results so what more could I ask of a body lotion? The tube I have appears to be a new formula and is different packaging to the one pictured.

      Use
      I was using this during and after pregnancy to combat stretch marks and then baggy skin on my tummy and then desperately dry legs during the colder winter months. The label states it is a botanical blend which also results in a pleasantly fragranced fresh smelling lotion that reminds me of aloe vera.

      My experience
      The flip top lid enables a quick squeeze of the tube to get the product out and I found a small blob went a long way. It felt like a water based product to me, quite thick that just slunk onto the skin in a refreshing and pleasing way. It sunk in quickly leaving no greasy residue behind on my skin.

      Price
      I distinctly remember buying this from the 99p shop which is a great price but also a shame as they never seem to have consistent stock in as a lot of their lines are clearance due to packaging changes and end of lines. I have since seen this in the supermarket for nearly £4 a tube.

      My thoughts
      I would actually pay the supermarket prices for this lotion, it is that good! I would also be interested to track down a pump dispenser like the one pictured - I do like a pump dispenser for my products as I find them easier to use if my hands are a bit slippy. I loved using this all over my body and my skin felt lovely afterwards. I felt it worked best on my tummy which is much improved despite the signs of two recent pregnancies showing on my body. My skin feels firmer and nicer to the touch after using this lotion.

      Final word
      I think this is one of the best, if not THE best body lotions I have ever used and I have used a lot! I still have my favourites like Soap and Glory but I would be happy to use this as an everyday solution to dry skin. I would also take this on holiday to combat sun damaged skin as the patented moisture layer complex in this lotion really works in my opinion.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        I would recommend this product

        I'm not certain when I first started using Vaseline sheer infusion but I'm currently on my fourth bottle. What attracted me to this product is the fact it's part of the Vaseline range and I have always been a fan of products produced by Vaseline. In simple terms I have never being disappointed by any of there lip care or body lotions. Also the price I bought a 200ml bottle of Vaseline sheer infusion for £1.29 from home bargains. I haven't seen this product elsewhere on my shopping travels but after a little research I found this product on sale for £1.99 on Amazon so this suggests I have had a bit of a bargain at £1.29.There are 3 types under the Vaseline sheer infusion range these include; Vitamin Burst, Botanical Blend, Mineral Renewal. I selected the Vitamin Burst, mainly because the word vitamins suggested this would be good for my skin. The type of vitamins it contains is B5 and E. It states on the bottle that these vitamins are known to boost skin. I was unaware of theses vitamins being good for the skin but a big skin care company like Vaseline I'm inclined to trust them as they known there stuff.

        As for packaging, It comes in a rather thick blue bottle not that attractive or eye catching but a brand like Vaseline its reputation speaks for itself so I believe this product will sell regardless of its slightly boring packaging.

        The packaging states the moisturiser contains Stratys 3 for superior moisture and a unique silky feel. It also states that some moisturisers only act on the top layers of your surface skin leaving the skin greasy, whilst others sink through quickly and your skin doesn't feel throughly moisturised. Vaseline Sheer infusion is designed to work differently for superior moisture and a unique silky feel. It also states to use daily as necessary.
        As its designed for I use the this product daily, as I use fake tan frequently this tends to dry my skin out but to apply fake tan evenly its important to have throughly moisturised skin. So I would say I have challenging skin. This product however even after the first use, just like its claims left my skin silky smooth. This silky smoothness also last all day and applying my fake tan is made easier and tends to last longer as a result. The product itself is rather thick but dries rather quickly however I find myself using a lot of it each time, the bottle itself last me between 2-3 weeks I'm not sure if this is me needing to use more due to my dry skin or this is the case with most users.I also find coming to the end of the bottle even though there is quite a bit left in there getting the last part out is difficult and involves a lot of banging against my palm. I have found this with all four bottles I have bought, which I find strange as the way this must be stored the lid is always face down so I would think all the remaining product would stay by the nozzle so would be easy to get out. The smell is rather nice, it smells fresh and kinda fruity but doesn't linger on the skin all day.

        Conclusively I'm on my fourth bottle so I'm definitely pleased with this product, Just wish it lasted me a little longer and coming to the end of the bottle that it was easier to get out. However this product is a real bargain for £1.29 as it leaves me feeling silky smooth what else does a girl with dry skin want.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        This moisturiser is definitely worth a try, it's honest, and does what it claims to.

        I became tempted to try this product as it was on the shelf at a reduced price of £2.50 at my local supermarket. I am usually loath to risk spending on expensive moisturisers, in case they don't produce adaquate results.
        I suffer from dry skin on my arms and lower legs which leaves me with a 'crazy paving' effect when you look closely at the skin. I rarely find any moisturiser that can effectively reduce this for any length of time - but Vaseline Sheer Infusion does! The skin is visibly moisturised with a lasting effect. I wholeheartedly recommend this product to anyone that suffers from dry skin, even at its usual retail price.
        The packaging must be well designed as I felt particularly drawn to this product in amongst the other items. The 200ml tube, is a useful flip top, cap standing design to ensure the lotion is always at the cap end. The tube is a restful dark blue colour at the top gradually fading to white; the clear, attractive, easy to read print, is highlighted in colours of orange, dark blue and white.
        The lotion is white in colour and viscous. It has a pleasing fragrance, which reminds me of oranges/peaches/citrus fruits, especially the type of fragrance you find in yoghurts flavoured with these fruits!
        When applied to the skin, the product takes a few minutes to absorb in fully, and does leave the fragrance on the skin and a slight greasy feel (described as 'silky' feel by the manufacturer), you notice this exceptionally on your palms but a quick handwash will solve this. The greasy feel does subside after about 30 minutes, after this, I would describe it as a smoother feeling on the skin, when compared to areas not moisturised.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Not one for me.

          I am often receiving samples of body lotions and creams to try, and being someone that suffers from dry skin especially in the cold weather they always come in handy. A recent sample I received was of Vaseline Sheer Infusion Vitamin Burst Body Lotion, I have tried Vaseline lotions in the past and have always been impressed at how good they have been. Personally I find that Vaseline products do an excellent job at moisturising so I was confident that this would be no different.

          Vaseline Sheer Infusion Body Lotion comes in a blue and white curved bottle, the bottle starts off a darker shade of blue towards the top, fading to white at the bottom of the bottle, the bottom of the bottle is also the lid. Towards the top of the bottle is the Vaseline logo which is a dark blue oval shape with the word Vaseline written across it in white lettering, just below this are the word "Sheer Infusion" again in white writing making it stand out against the dark blue half of the bottle. Right in the middle of the bottle is further writing which states that the Vaseline has Stratys 3 (I will explain this later) this is in dark blue writing and underlined in bright orange, and finally right at the bottom of the bottle is a bright orange rectangle with "vitamin burst" written inside it in white letters, personally I do not think the white writing stands out that well against the orange background making it a little harder to read for some people. The words body lotion are written at the bottom of the bottle. The back of the bottle contains further information such as the ingredients, directions of use, an explanation of strathys 3 and a bit of information about the product. All of the important information is very easy to read and clearly presented.

          The lotion is pure white in colour and is of a reasonably thick consistency. The first thing I noticed about this lotion was it did have quite a strong smell to it, this was noticeable as soon as I squeezed a small amount from the packet, the fragrance was quite floral and to be honest a little overpowering for me, I tend to prefer a slightly more subtle smelling body lotion, however from experience I do know that lotions which smell strong in the bottle often tone down a little once absorbed into your skin so I was willing to give it a go. I applied a small amount of the body lotion to my skin and started to rub it in, I found that as I was rubbing the lotion into my skin it felt quite cooling, but it also felt almost wet on my skin, nothing like any lotions I had tried in the past. As I continued to rub the lotion in it went from feeling wet on my skin to a little bit greasy, personally I am not a fan of greasy lotions and moisturisers so I was hoping that the greasy feeling would quickly disappear. After a couple of minutes of applying the Vaseline Sheer Infusion Lotion the greasy feel had started to wear off, although my skin did still feel a little bit oily but it had left my skin feeling extremely soft and well moisturised. However I did noticed that the strong fragrance had not really toned down much at all, and the floral fragrance was even stronger on my hands from where I had applied the lotion to other areas of my body, this was one aspect of the lotion I was not too happy with. The fragrance was not horrible or unpleasant, just a bit over the top and overpowering for my personal taste when it comes to moisturisers, if a cream or lotion is going to have a floral smell to it personally I prefer this to be much subtler than this particular lotion was.

          As I have mentioned the initial greasy feel of the lotion did wear of reasonably quickly, although I have to say not as quickly as some of my other body lotions, however about 15 to 20 minutes after I had applied the lotion and it had fully absorbed into my skin I did notice that the greasy feel was starting to come back again, whilst my skin did still feel soft and well moisturised it was beginning to feel a bit on the greasy side again, but this time there was also a very slight stickiness to it as well, it was almost like the lotion was starting 'unabsorbed' from my skin (if that is even a word) So whilst my skin was softer and left less dry and tight, it was now starting to feel greasy and sticky again, this I was not impressed at. However on the plus side the fragrance had now toned down a lot and was much more to my taste.

          Vaseline Sheer Infusion claims to be unlike most moisturisers which only act on the top layers and do not sink through the layers of skin quickly, in turn leaving the skin feeling greasy, it also claims to leave your skin with a silky feel whilst the vitamin burst formula boosts your skin. Now personally do not really agree with any of these claims, firstly the lotion took a little while to absorb and when it did there was still a slight greasy feel to it, and not only that after the greasy feel had worn off not half an hour later the greasiness started to return along with leaving your skin feeling slightly sticky. And secondly I would not say that my skin had a silky feel to it, admittedly it did feel well moisturised but the greasy/ sticky feel to my skin caused by the lotion left it feeling far from silky. So personally I feel that in my experience Vaseline's claims about this lotion are incorrect.

          What are Stratys - 3?
          Basically these are unique patented complex and powerful ingredients which infuse and suspend moisture into each later of your skin, the idea is it gives you deep down moisture throughout the layers of your skin. I cannot really say whether I agree with this or not, whist I do feel that the lotion moisturised my skin (possibly through the layers) but the greasy feel I was left with made me wonder whether the lotion was properly absorbed.

          Price
          As I have mentioned I received a free sample of this lotion, however I have done a bit of research and this product can be purchased from most supermarkets, Boots or Superdurg stores, my local Boots is selling a 200ml bottle of Vaseline Sheer Infusion for £5.10, personally I think this is very expensive for this product, whilst it is good at moisturising your skin I was not that impressed with it to pay out that amount of money, I do this think is a bit over priced.

          Overall I think I would recommend this product for people with very dry skin, but for people like me with either normal or slightly dry skin this product was not the best choice, I have to say the greasy and sticky feel I was left with has put me off using this product, maybe if I ever was suffering with very dry skin I might give it a go, but at the moment it isn't one for me, especially at over £5 for a bottle

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            typical of the vaseline product - great smell and it works

            I am always looking for something a little different with body lotions and generally like to try out new products. I saw Vaseline sheer infusion in my local tesco and thought it sounded good.

            I paid around £3.99 for a 200ml bottle which is fairly high priced for the size when you compare to some other brand goods.
            The bottle looks much the same as in the dooyoo picture, except as mine is a smaller size it doesn't have the pump lid.
            The bottle is sturdy plastic which is part blue fading out to a white colour and a flip lid with a pink lip.

            The version I bought is the mineral renew one. Their are others including vitamin burst. The labels are stick on plastic. On the front are the products name and the fact it has "stratys 3" in it which apparently gives superior moisture and silky feel. The product goes into more detail on the reverse stating how the moisture is designed to "infuse and suspend moisture at each layer of your skin".
            All of this sounds brilliant - but does it work?

            On opening the product does not run out it needs a gentle squeeze of the bottle, which is pretty easy to do and as it stands on its lid, continues to work well even at the end of the bottle.
            It has the familiar vaseline smell but does seem to be slightly less in strength than some older products in the brand.
            The lotion itself is white and slightly shiny which is still shows on the skin until it soaks in, which is only a few moments. It rubs in very easily and you don't need very much, which is good considering it is on the higher price range.
            Regarding the mineral renew and moisture for each layers....well who knows! They say that's what it does but lets be honest unless you biologically test your skin somehow, it would be hard to judge. Saying that what I can tell you, is that my skin feels great. Certainly more moisturised and smells good too! I think I will buy it again for these facts and because despite the price it lasts for a while. Maybe I will try the vitamin one next time.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            A lovely, clean scented body lotion from Vaseline.

            I first tried Vaseline vitamin burst after I received a few free samples from a friend who had picked up lots of them at a car boot sale. Each sample contained 7ml which I found to be enough to give my body a nice even, thin coating. This prompted me to give this lotion a try even though I had initially thought it was a little bit expensive with a 200ml bottle costing £4.99. I actually paid £3.99 for mine thanks to a voucher that I had received in the post just the day before my purchase.

            This lotion comes provided in a flip top bottle and it is designed to stand on it's lid which means that the lotion is always travelling downwards towards the opening. This is fantastic as it means that the lotion is never stuck up the other end of the bottle, essential when you are trying to get your moneys worth. The opening is a fair size and just enough that you have to give a gentle shake or squeeze to get a large dollop of lotion out of the bottle, this means you don't end up with lots of lotion coming out and this prevents wastage.

            The lotion itself is a thick white colour and blends in to the skin very fast. I find it best to apply this after my bath or shower and then leave it to soak in while I am busy drying my hair. It takes a fair few minutes for the slightly sticky feel to go away so it's probably not advisable to get dressed straight after using this unless you want your clothes to stick to your skin! Once this lotion has sunk in I find that the smell of it improves even more than fresh out of bottle and it has a light perfumed scent to it which lasts for a fair few hours. I like knowing that not only is my skin being nourished throughout the day but I have a light scent to me as well which I keep catching a whiff of throughout the day.

            This lotion contains Vitamin B5 and Vitamin E which are said to give your skin a boost. I do find that my skin is feeling a lot softer and smoother than if I had not used a body lotion but then I find this with most body lotions that I have used in the past. My skin stays lovely and soft throughout the day and my partner seems to have noticed how much softer I am to lie next to at night, maybe my skin was dragon-like before! I have been very pleased with the results from using this product but I feel that the price is a little expensive and I would say that this is more like a perfumed body lotion that one I would consider to be full of vitamins to give me a 'boost'.

            Overall I love the scent and I love how my skin is left feeling soft and smooth after use. I don't think I would buy this particularly product again as while I enjoy the effects it give to my skin I just don't feel it justifies the £5 price tag.

            If you are looking for a more luxurious body lotion then this is probably one for you as it have a lovely, light, clean scent to it that lasts for hours and it has a slightly more luxurious price tag to go with it.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Excellent moisturiser.

              I received a sample of this and fell completely in love with it. As soon as my sample finished I went out and purchased a full size bottle.

              There are three different lotions available in the Vaseline Sheer Infusion Range: Vitamin Burst, Botanical Blend and Mineral Renewal. I am reviewing the Vitamin Burst lotion. It comes in a plastic bottle which has a flip top lid and sits on its base so that it is easier to get the lotion out especially when there is just a little left.

              This body lotion contains vitamin B5 and E, which give the skin a nice boost. It is meant to hydrate all layers of the skin; the top, the core and deep down. While I cannot comment on whether it really does this, I will say that it makes my skin feel silky soft, almost velvety. No lotion has ever had this effect on my skin. It sinks in and makes my skin feel very soft but not at all greasy. I have sensitive skin and this lotion hasn't irritated it at all. It lasts very long too, I apply this at night and my skin still feels soft in the morning. It has a sweet, subtle scent that lingers on your skin and I like it very much.

              I feel that this is a little pricey at £4.99 for a 200 ml bottle, but definitely worth it and it lasts for quite some time too, as you only need a little for your skin to feel very moisturised. I won't be buying this again for a while as I already have too many body butters and body lotions, but I will definitely buy it after I finish some of them or if I see this on offer. I have just checked the Boots website and it is on offer for £3.33 there so if you want to try this out, now would be a good time to do so.

              This review may appear on other sites under the same username.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              great value for money!

              Most moisturizers available do not suspend moisture on all layers of the skin from the top layers and the core of the skin to the deep down layers of the skin.

              One of Vaseline sheer infusions much-loved trait is that it ensures all layers are hydrated and works deep down rather than just on the top interior. The consequence of the skin only been hydrated at the top core layer is that severely dry skin will get the appropriate quantity of hydration for all the layers of the skin ,so the dry skin will persist as the only layer of skin that would be receiving the right amount of moisture is the top core furthermore when the top core sheds, the skin underneath which will be at the top of the skins surface at this time (after the initial skin is shed) will be dry leaving the same problem as you started out with. Talk about vicious cycles!

              This fantastic technology makes Vaseline sheer infusion one of the most unique products available as it delivers the most intense moisturising with the Stratys-3 innovation lotion that delivers intense moisture to all layers of skin.

              The product can be purchased for as little as £4.99 in Boots stores in the UK. And in the USA the vaseline sheer infusion can be purchased for $10.99 from Amazon.com
              This price is exceptional for the quantity of the product you are getting combined with the fantastic results this product gives.

              The vaseline sheer infusion range has three different products to choose from. These are: Botanical blend, Vitamin Burst and Mineral renewal.
              Each product has unique properties and are suitable for sensistive skin. As a result of Vaseline making three products avaliable in the sheer infusion range it makes it more likely that there would be a product in the range perfect for your skins needs.
              All of the produts in the sheer infusion range have the strayts 3 patented moisturising complex so your skin will benefit highly on any of the sheer infusion you choose from.

              The botanical blend sheer infusion moisturiser is the most suitable for those with sensistive skin as it contains botanical cypress and eucalyptus extract, perfect for soothing skin.


              The vaseline sheer infusion mineral renewal mosituriser is best suited for people who have Vaseline Sheer Infusion Mineral Renewal Body Lotion contains enriching minerals, which is ideal for tired out skin.

              The Vaseline Sheer Infusion Vitamin Burst Body Lotion includes vitamin B5 and E, this is good for skin that is already in fairly good condition but could do with that extra 'boost' to enhance its condition.

              The vaseline sheer infusion is a non greasy forumulae so rather than leaving the skin feeling greasy and leaving the moisturse to just sit at the top of the skins surface it hydrates right through to the deep levels of the skin.

              The product almost feels like a serum as it has a lightweight luxurious silky feel on the skin.Vaseline sheer infusion soaks into the skin very quickly so for those who apply moisturiser before applying their make-up it makes it less time consuming as you don't have to wait for the product to dry.

              The smell of this moisturiser is very subtle which is usually prefered in a body mosturiser as most heavy fragrant skin products can leave those with sensistive skin feeling more dryer or with a rash. The smell combines perfectly with the lightweight elegance of this forumale as it smells as subtle as its existence on the skin, it doesn't feel like your wearing a mask, its so natural as though you aren't wearing anything although when you touch it you will instnatly be reminded you have this effective moisturiser on as your skin will feel so smooth and silky.

              The sheer infusion range is definitely a useful product and one of the moisturisers is more than likely going to fit perfectly with your skins needs. Before purchasing one of the sheer infusion products be sure to check which one is suitable for your skin type as I have listed on the product on the earlier stages of this review or refer to the back of the bottle.

                Disadvantages

                Avoid this one

                I was lucky enough to be given a full bottle of Vaseline Sheer Infusion to try out and report back my findings, so I thought it wa sonly fair to share it on dooyoo as well, as I find it the most trustworthy. I've never been a fan of Vaseline lip products as I find it too jelly like and think but I went into this trial completely open minded.

                What is it?

                Sheer Infusion is a complete body moisturiser enriched with vitamins and Stratys 3 formula. It claims to be different to other moisturisers which either lie on top of your skin making it feel greasy or those which sink through too quickly leaving yout skin feeling not moisturised enough. It claims to give a silky feeling and boost your skin with vitamins B5 and E.

                What is Stratys 3?

                I had no idea! It is actually Vaselines' patented complex which combines powerful moisturising ingredients which suspend moisture in every layer of your skin; the top layer, core and deep down.

                How to use

                I would recommend applying liberally to your whole body (not face as it is too rich and each persons facial skin is different and needs special tlc) with your hands. I would aply it to slightly damp skin to lock in extra moisture.

                My opinion

                I didn't like the feel of the product, its like a thin gel and felt a bit strange on my skin. I much prefer creams. It goes on see-through but spreads well. I thought it could of had a nicer smell, instead of a synthetic scent. My skin didn't feel any silkier than normal or that moisturised. I don't think it had any positive effect on me at all, it was very disappointing. I would not pay for this or use it again, even if ti was free. I much prefer using Lush' solid body butters or The Body Shop body butters. They work well, are good for the environment and smell delicious.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                I cannot recommend it

                There's nothing better than a good freebie, so when a small sachet of this product, Vaseline Sheer Infusion fell through my letter box this morning I was very pleased. I'm currently 5 months pregnant and my skin has gone haywire, so this was shaping up to be the perfect freebie.


                This is a relatively new addition to the Vaseline range and is marketed as being a super moisturiser. 'It infuses and suspends superior moisture across all layers of your skin' which is deeper and superior than most moisturisers out there.


                As I only got a small sachet, I applied it to my dryest areas - my face, chest and arms. When putting it on the cream seemed to go on easily and it had a pleasant, neutral smell. I rubbed the cream in and waited for it to be absorbed. 15 minutes later I had to wash my hands as they felt very greasy and tacky, even though I'd wiped the excess cream onto my legs. 6 hours later and I can still feel the cream on my skin. Everywhere I applied it feels greasy and not very nice. The best comparison I can make is to aftersun, which I can always still feel hours later. It's not a pleasant feeling and I'm looking forward to washing it off.


                My skin does feel moisturised, but not any better moisturised compared to Nivea which I normally use and even if it did, I wouldn't buy this product as I feel the negatives outweigh the positives.


                The lotion is available in 3 varieties; Botanical Blend, Vitamin Burst, and Mineral Renewal. The variety I tried was the Vitamin Burst which contains Vitamins B5 and E, both are nutrients known to boost the skin.


                It is available at most supermarkets and places like Boots etc for the princely sum of £4.99 for 200ml. Even if I did like the product, the price would put me off as I feel it's pretty expensive compared to comparable products.

                  Try Vaseline Sheer Infusion for soft moisturised skin.

                  Review of Vaseline Sheer Infusion Body Lotion

                  I was fortunate enough to receive a free sample of a full size (200ml) of this Body Lotion recently. The Vaseline website have a limited amount of samples to give away and I applied for the offer. My body lotion arrived about three weeks ago and I have used it more or less, daily since receiving it.

                  ==The Product==

                  Vaseline is a well known brand which has been popular in the UK for over 130 years, ever since a man named Robert Chesebrough discovered the skincare properties of Vaseline petroleum jelly.
                  Vaseline are probably still best known for their petroleum jelly although the company produce a wide range of personal care products, including the subject of this review, Sheer Infision body lotion.

                  The body lotion is presented in a slender plastic bottle the base of which flips open to access the body lotion. The lotion comes in a couple of different types/fragrances, I am using the 'vitamin burst' version, so it is this one that features in the review. The lotion is enhanced with vitamins B5 and E, both (as stated by Vaseline) are known to boost skin

                  The packaging of this body lotion is rather sleek, deep blue at the top, gradually fading to a grey/white colour. The product name and the Vaseline logo appear on the front of the bottle, whilst the ingredients, direction for use and company information are found not eh reverse. The Body Lotion is designed for men or women and the package would appeal to either sex.


                  ==Scent and Using the Lotion==

                  Vaseline state that the lotion is made with 'Stratys 3 for superior moisture and a unique silky feel'. Now I am not certain exactly what Stratys 3 might be, Vaseline's website tells me that the phrase comes from the Latin 'Stratum corneum', meaning surface skin. The website also tells me that this means the skin is moisturised at 3 levels, the top, the core and deep down. I will make no comment on this, but what I can say is that this is a remarkably good moisturising lotion!

                  The body lotion is quite thick and creamy in texture, it takes a fairly hefty squeeze of the bottle actually access the stuff! No problems with wastage here unlike thinner consistency body lotions! The scent is light, reminiscent of baby lotion to my nose, it is a delicate scent which does not linger, so making the lotion suitable to use with other fragrances. The lotion is white in colour and it is very easily absorbed into the skin.


                  Vaseline recommend that Sheer Infusion can be used daily or as necessary, I have been using after my morning shower and have been very impressed with the results. The lotion is not at all greasy on the skin and is absorbed quickly, leaving no sticky residue as some other brands do.

                  The effects on my skin are nothing short of dramatic, I have quite dry skin which is prone to break outs of contact dermatitis. Since using this body lotion, my skin has been far more comfortable, softer and less itchy than usual. Vaseline do state that this body lotion is hypo allergenic and suitable for all age groups, I am 51 and I have found it suits my mature skin very well.

                  I am not going to replicate the ingredients for this product, it reads like a pharmacist's stock list and I am sure no one really wants to read it! The information is available on the company website for those who are interested.

                  More information about this product and a link to request a free sample can be found on the website:-
                  www.vaselinesheerinfusion.co.uk


                  ==Availability and Cost==

                  As previously stated, my bottle was a free sample, however I spotted the body lotion on special offer in Boots for £3.33, a generous saving against the RRP of £4.99.

                  Vaseline Sheer Infusion Body Lotion was launched in February of this year and Boots had exclusive rights over the product until the end of March 2010. I have yet to see the body lotion elsewhere so cannot really comment on other stores prices. I will of course update this review as and when I can.

                  ==My Thoughts and Conclusion==

                  I found this body lotion to be an absolute joy to use, it glides on the skin leaving no sticky, greasy residue. It does not stain clothing or interfere with other fragrances you may choose to wear. It leaves skin softened and smooth, comfortable and well moisturised. I would definitely recommend Vaseline Sheer Infusion to others, it may not be the cheapest or indeed the dearest on the market, but it does do exactly what it promises in the bottle and for my money, that is worth a recommendation in itself!

                  Thank you for reading.

                    Advantages

                    Disadvantages

                    A good moisturiser from Vaseline

                    On a recent shopping trip to Boots, I came across a new body lotion from Vaseline - Sheer Infusion, on offer at an introductory price of £3.33 for a 200ml bottle, (one third off the regular retail price) and I couldn't resist giving it a try, being a fan of Vaseline products in general.

                    The bottle itself is not as pictured above with a pump dispenser, instead it is a flip top bottle which stands on its lid, it is however the same shaped bottle.

                    What really attracted me to the product was its claims that unlike regualr body lotions it does not act directly on the surface of the skin alone, but penetrates the skin and acts on every layer. The patented technology which allows this is called 'Stratys 3' a multi-layer moisture complex which combines poweful moisturising ingredients to 'infuse and suspend moisture at each layer of your skin - the top, the core and deep down'.

                    This body lotion is available in three variants, Vitamin Burst, Botanical Blend and the one I chose, Mineral Renewal. The reason I chose the Mineral Renewal formula was due to the claims stating that it contains minerals such as the ones found in healthy skin.

                    The lotion itself is rather plain, just white and quite light in texture. On application it sinks into the skin quickly and has quite a nice delicate fragrance, not overpowering which does linger on the skin for a while after. My skin feels quite velvety after application and as its is absorbed easily I can dress within a minute or two of applying, which is a good bonus for me as I'm always in a rush in the mornings.

                    The velvety feeling seems to last well into the day, I applied it this morning, and as I'm writing this now, my skin still feels quite smooth and soft now, 6 hours later. I don't generally apply lotion before bed, and with this lotion I don't feel there is any need to. Don't confuse the velvety feeling this lotion gives to the skin as being greasy or waxy as it is not an unpleasant feeling, it feels as if the skin is being 'protected' from moisture loss unlike some lotions which only seem to be effective for a few hours at most.

                    To summarise, this is an effective product at a reasonable price, and I would definately buy again.
