Vaseline Essential Moisture Lotion
Advantages: Smells lovely, makes the skin soft and smooth
The essential moisture body lotion is a non greasy body lotion that has been created by Vaseline. Vaseline states that they have been caring for skin since 1870 so you have to accept that they know what they're doing! The product promises to be absorbed quickly leaving the skin feeling healthy, smooth and soft using a multi layered moisture technology.
The product comes in three different varieties. You could choose the green bottle Aloe Fresh which is a light lotion or the brown bottled Cocoa Radiant rich lotion. I chose the middle lotion which promises to leave your skin feeling clean and this is the yellow bottled Essential Moisture.
How does it work?
The product works by hydrating the skin on the top layer, middle layer and deep down into the core of the skin using an oat extract. It also contains Glycerin which draws moisture into the skin and allows it to be retained.
How do you use the product?
The product is to be used in the same way as any other body lotion. There are no instructions on the packaging and it doesn't in fact say anywhere on the bottle that it is a body lotion but I still wouldn't think that it's suitable for use on the face.
The product can be applied to the body onto skin that is dry and cleansed and massaged in until it has been fully absorbed. The product can be reapplied as often as necessary.
Packaging and Price
The packaging is bright and summery and it is contained within a lovely yellow bottle that is made of plastic. It has a picture of some oats and some limited information about the product. The lid is a deeper yellow and it is a flip top so it makes it really easy to access the lotion.
The product is available in three different sizes. I bought the 400ml bottle for around £4 but it is also available in both 200ml and 75ml bottle and these obviously cost less money. The product can be bought from many department stores, larger supermarkets and a variety of online websites.
Aroma and appearance
The product has a lovely summery, refreshing aroma. I can't put my finger on exactly what it smells like but it is quite sweet and it is faint enough to not mix with your perfume or put anyone off. It almost smells a little bit like freshly washed sheets. The lotion is white in colour and has a medium consistency just as promised.
The lotion feels lovely on the skin and it is absorbed super fast with minimal effort on my part. It seems to melt into the skin and disappears. You do need to use quite a lot of the lotion because it disappears. It feels completely comfortable on my skin and it certainly doesn't make me feel greasy or sticky at all. In fact, just as promised on the bottle, it leaves me feeling and smelling clean.
The product does make my skin feel soft and smooth from the first application. It doesn't leave me feeling wowed, but it does the job. Despite being light, it does get to work on even my driest areas, although it doesn't banish them completely.
It does manage to make my skin look healthier and seems to banish any dullness. It doesn't leave any greasy sheen or shine on the skin so apart from it looking healthy, nobody would really guess that you have put anything on. The results are long lasting and reapplication isn't really necessary until bedtime.
All in all, this is a good long lasting product that makes the skin look and feel healthy. It leaves you feeling and smelling fresh and clean and leaves no noticeable sheen on the skin. I would repurchase the product again if I ever saw it on offer. It didn't blow me away but this is a perfectly good product which lives up to all of its promises.
Summary: A lovely lotion which softens the skin and leaves you feeling fresh and clean
