      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A cream that really helps dry skin

      I swear by my vaseline hand and nail lotion, but I always like trying something new so I've recently bought Vaseline's DermaCare lotion.

      Vaseline Intensive Care Dermacare lotion comes in a 75ml upside down tube, white in colour, with a baby blue flip up lid at the bottom, and a blue colouring to the tube.

      It tells us on the front, it is of course Vaseline Intensive Care, DermaCare, Dermatoligical Lotion, which soothes and protects dry and sensitive skin.

      The back of the tube advises that if it is used regularly, this cream will make your dry and sensitive skin behave like normal skin.

      As I always wash my hands I do now and then suffer from dry skin which can become sensitive and irritated easily so I wanted to used something that wouldn't irritate it further and would in fact help it. My skin becomes more dry in the winter months, or even when it's too hot to.

      The cream itself is pure white in colour and isn't all that thick. It doesn't have much of a smell to it really, but I didn't buy it for a scent. Despite it not having a fragrance, it does smell 'clean'.

      I was really impressed using this cream, it didn't irritate my skin any further and actually seemed to soothe and help it. My dry skin soon felt relieved, and within around 2 weeks my dry skin had actually gone which surprised me but it was exactly what I needed. It sinks into the skin very quickly and leaves them feeling smooth and soft instantly but the real results come after around 2 weeks, like I said. I feel the cream really works with my dry skin and moisturises my skin well allowing it to get back to it's normal state.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      great long lasting moisturiser.

      Overview
      -----------
      I bought this cream recently as i have started to get very dry, sensitive skin. It is so fresh feeling when you put it on your face and doesnt sting like some other moisturisers. I have to say this, along woth dove, is my favourite moisturiser.

      Packaging and design
      ----------------------------
      Clean and simple. OK it might not be the best looking packaging but who cares. I dont buy products because they look nice i buy them because they work and this one definately does!

      Price
      ------
      I bought it from poundland two weeks ago for a pound - bargain!

      Quality
      ---------
      Vaseline is a brand i really trust. The ingredients arnt too harsh and i really do believe them when they says its for sensitive skin. This moisturiser keeps my skin hydrated all day - it is definately as good as other, more expensive moisturisers.

      Overall
      ---------
      I would recommend this product to anyone with dry or sensitive skin. It is extremely gentle yet long lasting and has little fragrance. At just £1 you cant get a better deal im sure - look out for it at a pound shop near you!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      One product in place of many

      I've used Vaseline Intensive Care Dermacare to heal and moisturise after having tattoo's and I've found it to work really well. After trying specialist healing products from tattoo studios I tried this by chance after running out of other products. Vaseline Intensive Care Dermacare is quite oily so is great for healing tattoo's as it tends to stick around on the skin and doesn't sink in straight away. When I've used it I've had to apply it far less frequently than other products like E45 which was recommended to me. It's also pretty neutral so doesn't irritate skin at all. I've even put it on broken skin, which I'm sure Vaseline wouldn't recommend, and it's been fine. Seeing as I had Vaseline Intensive Care to use on my tattoo's I used it on my hands and it works great. I move a lot of boxes and things in work so it can make my hands dry and rough but this product really made a difference. As such I tend to keep a bottle in the house all the time. I've spoken to other people about it and recommended it to others for use on tattoo's. When they get back to me I'll let you know! I'm sure it'll be good news.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A brilliant moisturiser, sadly replaced now by inferior product

      WHY HAS THIS BEEN DISCONTINUED BY VASELINE AND REPLACED WITH A LOTION WITHOUT THE SAME EFFECTS, AND MORE LIKE PLAIN VASELINE INTENSIVE CARE REGULAR?????????

      I really liked Dermacare, and now you can only buy it online, or from shops with old stock.

      As a creme, tt was an excellent - incredibly moisterising and kept skin moisterised for hours, not just like some cremes claim. Compared to E45 it was affordable, and yet reassuringly expensive, if you know what I mean. Highly recommended, but hard to find, if not impossible, which raises its value even higher.

      Does anyone know any more information regarding this??? I've tried buying it from ebay but no one sells it there either. Just my luck lol! Oh well!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A really good hand care product

        I recently had a slight change in job at work which resulted in my hands getting a rather harsher treatment than usual. I was therefore on the lookout for something which was going to help and protect them.

        There are literally hundreds of hand care products on the market and sifting through them to find one that is suitable is no easy task. I had used other vaseline products in the past and at the invitation of MRs Donf18 tried this Dermacare product.

        The platic container which houses the product is in itself not that impressive, being palin white with a light blue top and a blue label. At the bottom of the front of the bottle it makes a small statement
        " NATURAL LIPIDS"
        Hypo-allergenic Fragrance Free

        Being a guy I had to research what the hell a natural lipid was/is whatever. As it turns out it is far to complicated for an ignoramous like me to explain, suffice to briefly say that they are fatty acids and contain a high concentration of energy, and they act as a carrier for soluble vitamins. Well that sounds like a good thing to me...........................yep a good thing. it therefore goes without saying that I also had to research Hypo-allergenic although to be fair to myself i was pretty close with my initial guess. Hypo-allergenic means that the product is less likely to cause an allergic reaction than a non hypo-allergenic product. Now this had be a little puzzled. In my opinion make a product as non allergenic as possible should be Standard Practice.

        The products claim on the front of the bottle under it's description is that it soothes and protects dry and sensitive skin. I have used this on several ocassion over the last few weeks and found that these claims are well founded and the product does help stop rough and dry hands if used on a regular basis.

        On opening the bottle The first thing I noticed was the hint of a clean smell, not a fragrance has such just a nice smeel that promoted confidence. Now being a guy I certainly didn't want a product that made me smell all feminine. This product fits the bill in this department as I have no qualms about using it.

        The lotion is nice and cool when applied to the skin, and is absorbed very quickly. You don't need great dollops of the stuff for it to do it's job, just a little on each hand and rubbed gently into you hands or indeed other areas where you feel it might help. I had a bit of an itchy rash on my knee a few days ago and started putting the lotion on at night time. My knee is no longer itchy and the rash has gone. Does this mean that it is Pro hypo allergenic or something.

        There is 200ml of lotion in the quite large bottle and it costs in the region of £1.89 which for my money is pretty good value.The list of ingredients on the back of the bottle totaly bewilder me, but it does contain things like petrolatum and glycerin and aqua which i thought was water but as you already know all the chemical jargon has me at a complete loss.

        For my £1.89 I feel I got a really good buy, it does exactly what I wanted it to do and more to the point exactly what it said it would do on the bottle, which is a bit of a wonder these days. The 200ml contained in the bottle will or should last you a fair while which makes it even better value.

        Overall I am very impressed with this product and will certainly continue using it into the forseeable future.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          I have suffered with eczema for more than 10 years now and had never found a suitable moisturiser. I think that anyone who has a skin condition can empathise with the fact that finding something to use on your skin is tricky and involves an often long, and inconvenient process of trial and error. A few years ago, I started to use Vaseline Intensive Care for dry skin. It didn?t really help much although it did help my skin feel a little less tight. Later in life I started to use Vaseline Intensive Care, DermaCare. I found this emollient really good to use and I had finally found something that suited my skin condition. It is the only substance I use anywhere on my body today but recently I have become distressed about something I found in the ingredients. I found that during the usage of the past 3-4 bottles of DermaCare, that my skin has become more itchy. Only last week I looked again at the list of ingredients and found that it contains a new ingredient: ?Acetylated Lanolin Alcohol?. I am in fact allergic to Lanolin. It makes my skin intolerably itchy and flaky and even darker. I am very upset about this change and do not see why the cream had to change in any way. I would like an explanation to why this has to be. As for me, I have to now go through the horrid process (yet again) of finding another cream to suit my skin.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            I suffer from the extremely anoying condition of combination skin, where my fore head is really greasy and the reat of my face is dry as a bone. This is especially true after i wash my face or have a bath. as soon as i dry it i can actually feel my skin getting tighter and tighter. Now you can imagine that after suffering this for a good few years that ive tried any number of difference lotions until i discovered this. Unlike most lotions its really thick and rich but doesn't leave your skin greasy. it really does get absorbed straight into your skin without leaving any trace of it being there apart from baby soft skin. My skin gets so bad sometimes that im forced to use another product called sudacrem which is an extremly thick white cream that needs to be kneaded in otherwise your left with a lily white patch on your skin. i find the vaseline is better that this as it doesn't do this. Sudacrem is only best used for last resort where as vaseline is great for prevention of a greater problem. it also unscented and ideal for sentitive skin. it also donesn't contain liothen (i think thats what its called) which can really irritate some people and actually make the problem worst.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              The lovliest feeling in the world is pulling trousers on over smooth, moisturised legs: the material feels so soft and silky, even if it's just cotton! And having moisturised legs is a bonus all year round, as they look healthier and the skin itself becomes better equipped for the harsh world of cold air, rain, hot water and shaving. This is why, second only to the face, come the legs in the great Which Body Bit Needs Lotion championships. Squeaking into a proud bronze come the hands, which actually look younger when draped with soft and supple skin. Each of these three areas needs to be looked after carefully, but we all get a bit lazy and hard up.... a lot. So, if we can't be bothered to root out three separate pots, tubes and tubs for our daily skincare chore, and we can't afford to splash out in excess of twenty pounds on a puny 40g bottle of fancy facial mud, we know we can rely on 400 grammes of affordable all-round quality, which come in the form of Vaseline Intensive Care. Priced at £3.50, this huge bottle, coloured to reflect the colour of the product itself: a creamy pale yellow, will serve to treat every bit of skin you have the desire to moisturise after your bath or shave. Good for blokes and femmes, (the packaging doesn't discriminate) it can be used liberally on the legs and arms, on the oft-abandoned back, on the thirsty hands, and it can even be gently and sparingly streaked onto the cheeks and massaged into the whole face. Top notch! The good feeling of silkiness lasts for ages, and no grease is felt: no waiting around for ages for the stuff to dry. I saw it on tv, and thought it looked good: not promising to knock 15 years off, not too pricey, not boasting some 9/10 women survey result. So I tried it. Produced by Elida Faberge, this talc-smelling lotion which has the consistency of cream, contains.... *Aqua *Glycerin *Stearic Acid *Paraffinum Liquidum *Glyc
              ol stearate *Triethanolamine *Polydecene *Glyceryl Stearate *Petrolatum *Cetyl Alcohol *Stearamide AMP *Dimethicone *Tocopheryl Acetate *Panthenol *Retinyl Palmitate *Sodium PCA *Urea *Magnesium Aluminium Silicate *Carbomer *Parfum *Disodium EDTA *Phenoxyethanol *Methylparaben *Propylparaben *Caramel *CI 47005 A mammoth list, but they combine very nicely to form a product that you really must sample!

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                I first bought Vaseline Intensive Care Body Lotion about two years ago as I occasionally suffer from dry skin on the knuckles. Being a guy I wasn't too sure what I was looking for in the supermarket, and this product was on a special two for one offer at the time, and as I regonised the brand name I thought I'd give it a go. A small amount rubbed into the knuckles almost immediately made my hands feel much better. They felt soft and moist and the painful sores were soothed. With regular use they soon dissappeared and I now just use it every other day to keep them in shape. Looking at the label on the bottle I noticed it can be used as an after shave balm. Being someone who tends to cut myself often when shaving I gave it a try. It really does soothe the fiery skin you can get after a shave and leaves my skin really soft. It sounds weird I know but I love to stroke my cheek after a shave now because it's unreal how soft the skin feels! I also find this soothing properties of this product great for when you come in out of the sun. It stings slightly at first when you rub it on but I think that's more the actual rubbing causing the tingling, soon the skin feels cool and calm. My girlfriend buys this product now also after using mine and swears by it for her legs whether she's just come out of bath or just shaved them. It has a nice smell of Aloe Vera and Cucumber. At around £2.70 - £3 for 200ml, I think it's great value. 200ml usually last me about 3 months. My only gripe is it can be sometimes hard to force out every drop from the bottle. I usually leave mine standing upside down to aid this. It's not a thick liquid, quite runny actually it's just the nozzle gets clogged a little sometimes and needs cleaning. Excellent product.

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  I have eczema on my hands and have tried loads of different creams to try and make them softer. Most of them are the same, they work for a week and then I become immune to them and they stop working. Usually this means that I have to rotate creams every few days so that I don’t become immune to them. Vaseline is the first cream I have found that works after a week, in fact, I have been using it for over a year now and it is still making my dry skin softer. It is slightly more expensive than other dry skin creams but if it means I only have to have one bottle on my shelf and not ten it’s worth it! The containers are quite large as well so it’s lasts ages. As with all creams it is greasy so if you put it on your hands you won’t be able to do much for a while afterwards without wiping it off everywhere. Don’t try typing that really important private letter for your boss just afterwards unless you are using someone elses keyboard. They will wonder why their fingers slip off the keys afterwards! I find it’s best to put on just before you go to sleep, don’t stroke the cat after you’ve put it on either or you will end up with furry hands. Vaseline is also good to make your skin feel softer even if you do not have dry skin. It doesn’t make my skin feel greasy the next day if I put too much on. If you suffer from bad dry skin I would definitely recommend any Vaseline product, they are the best I have found and I have tried a few – start no the top shelf and work your way down. Shame they had to put Vaseline down in the middle or I would have saved a lot of money and shelf space!!

                    Advantages

                    Disadvantages

                    THE HISTORY Coming up to summer I find my skin tends to get a little dry so I moisturise twice a day. I've also heard that supple skin helps to hold a tan better and when you are as snowy white as me tans need all the help they can get!!! I have used Palmer's Cocoa Butter for a few years now alternating with moisturiser that I have received as gifts (my family know I love lotions and potions!). This year my husband finally came out and said it. He doesn't mind the Cocoa Butter once a day but twice is assaulting his nostrils. He has a point it does smell very strong and sweet and it isn't everyone's cup of tea. That left me to find a new moisturiser - pretty good timing as my bottle of Cocoa Butter was nearing the end. THE CHOICE I went into Superdrug and was astounded at the array of body moisturisers on the shelves. Using the same one for so long I'd never stopped to compare. I was totally baffled by what to choose. I thought I'd make things simpler, and cheaper so I headed off to Bodycare. For those not in the know Bodycare sells discount cosmetics, hair care, perfumes and skin care. They tend to be small shops with smaller ranges but cheap. Bodycare had a number of body moisturisers all at about 50p cheaper than Boots and Superdrug. I was instantly attracted to a bottle of Revlon moisturiser as it claimed to have no added fragrance. I opened the lid for a sniff and found it to smell chemically. Not for me! I moved along the shelf and found the Vaseling Intensive Care range. I had used this once before when I had a free sample so figured it should be alright. THE PRODUCT I finally slected a yellow bottle of Vaseline Intensive Care Lotion for Dry Skin. It has a Skin Protection complex so it helps prevent skin from further drying. It had added Vitamins A and E and skin lipids so that it moisturises quickly and efficiently. It also shouts from the front of the bottle tha
                    t it moisturises for up to 12 hours. Opening up the lid for a quick sniff and there is a mild, soft, clean fragrance from a yellow lotion that matches the outside bottle. I was impressed at the price - £1.99 for 400ml. This is cheap for a lotion with all the added vitamins and benefits, and by the look of some of the other reviews was significantly cheaper than the price charged by other chemists. THE RESULTS I have used this product for a little over a week now. It does live up to it's claim of 12 hour moisturisation as my skin feels soft throughout the day right up until I moisturise in the evening. The lotion is less creamy (gloopy) than my old Cocoa Butter so this makes getting it out of the bottle much less of an ordeal! The thin consistency means it is easily absorbed into your skin and the effects can be felt immediately. I like the fact that as the product is quickly absorbed I don't have to wait for my skin to dry to dress I can dress almost immediately. I have found this a great advnatage as I am prone to dry skin on my shin bones and this product can be quickly applied whenever necessary without my clothes sticking to my legs afterwards. THE CONCLUSION I have used this product on my daughter's skin, she suffers from eczema, and she has had no adverse reactions at all. My husband is also happy as I'm not moaning about my dry skin and he doesn't have to suffer the Cocoa Butter pong!!! After my weeks usage I have still only used 1/3 of the bottle of moisturiser which means that it is economical and at less than £2 a bottle great value for money. I'd recommend this to anyone - just shop around to get a good price!

                      Advantages

                      Disadvantages

                      YOUR SKIN When reading beauty magazines, you will always find that the best skin tip is to moisturise it so that it looks its best. This is not just to apply some lotion on it; it also means to drink plenty of water every day so that your skin looks nice and healthy because it is hydrated. With the summer coming up, most of us don't want to hit the beach with dried up skin (especially as I live next to the sea), so I thought I better do something about it. I always dig out this body lotion in the summer, as it is my favourite and I have been using it for a few years now, for an everyday lotion it is great. PACKAGING My favourite body lotion is Vaseline intensive care dry skin lotion. It is packaged in a yellow bottle (very summery) with a blue and green label. On the back is displayed a clear sticker with blue writing that has directions for use on it. The directions are very informative and have four diagrams with the different ways to use it, which are all over body, all family skincare, after shower moisturisation and after-shave moisturisation, which makes it attractive for the blokes to use too. I would not say the packaging is fantastic, and would not really catch my eye on a shelf of loads of bottles, but if you know what you are looking for its pretty distinctive. PRODUCT The lotion is a yellow lotion, which is not very thick so make sure that you don't use too much. It is easily absorbed and has a fresh, almost talcum powdery smell. I like it because it doesn't make my skin feel greasy afterwards, so you can get dressed without your clothes sticking to you! The lotion is very gentle, and it is lovely and cooling, so if I have run out of after sun this stuff is great to use. It contains Vitamin A, so at least it's feeding my skin with something. The bottle states that it is a proven formula, and being someone that has used it for a long time, I can definitely say that I agree, I don't have
                      majorly dry skin but it does make my skin soft and silky. PRICE The price of this product is about £3.50, which I think is very reasonable. When you think about how much you can pay for a similar quality product you could be paying about £15 or more!! Vaseline is a very reputable make and I totally agree that you get extremely good value for money. WHERE TO BUY IT You can buy this lotion from just about anywhere you can buy body lotions from; supermarkets, chemists, boots, even local shops. The price may vary from place to place, but only slightly so I just buy it from wherever I am at the time. ADVANTAGES The advantages of this product is that it smells lovely, is very reasonably priced, it is easily absorbed; it is not greasy and is made from a very reputable make. For any queries or comments about this product, call 0800 591720. DISADVANTAGES The only disadvantage about this product is to make sure you don't spill any lotion on the lid because it dries all sticky and horrible. Ugh! CONCLUSION Overall, I am thoroughly impressed by this product. I can use it anywhere and I have tried many different brands of body lotion, so if anyone knows, I do. Many of my family and friends use this, one of which is a beauty therapist so it must be good! I recommend this to anybody who wants silky soft skin this summer or a soothing lotion after shaving.

                        Disadvantages

                        My poor husband suffers from eczema, which gets extremely bad when he is stressed and it is not helped by his constant scratching. As we are currently in the midst of moving house (one of the top three most stressful life events) it is not really surprising that his scabby scaly patches (help I'm married to an iguana) are worse than ever and his attempts to rid himself of the itch sometimes makes me think I am living with a rather large Labrador with fleas. He has, however, discovered that Vaseline Intensive Care relieves his symptoms to some extent, although I have to profess that from the point of view of the co-scratchee that the results are not staggeringly successful. Due to his delicate and sensitive nature (well, the nature of his skin at any rate) he insists on having the DermaCare lotion for sensitive skin, which is more expensive than the other Vaseline Intsensive Care creams (£2.79 for 200ml). As a result I insist that he use every single last ounce of cream before being allowed to open a new bottle (I even cut open the container for him so he can really get inside). Ladies - have you noticed that rather annoying habit that men have of using all but a dribble of some cosmetic item and then leaving it on the shelf for months while they proceed to open a new one? The answer to this problem is to hide the new product somewhere where they cannot get their grubby little mitts on it until you are satisfied that it is required. THE CREAM The cream itself is hypoallergenic, white and fragrance free. None of those nasty harmful colourants or perfumes added here. However, this does mean that the product and eventually your hands have the faint whiff of plastic, as there is nothing artificially added to mask the smell of the bottle. It contains the usual ingredients to be found in such creams such as glycerin, petrolatum, paraffin and 'aqua'. That always makes me laugh when they list 'aqua' in
                        the ingredients. Although not everyone may have studied Latin at school, we all know damn well that it means water. The manufacturers obviously don?t think that the consumer would be tremendously amused to realise that the main ingredient in their product is water - something that can be obtained, quite literally on tap, for free in any household in the country. The manufacturers, Elida Faberge Ltd, claim that the cream 'makes dry and sensitive skin behave more like normal skin'. Quite what they mean by this is a matter for interpretation. Does the sensitive skin stop bursting into tears if someone criticises it? Does it stop trying to encourage others to do the conga when it has had a few too many down the pub? Who can say? But obviously 'normal' skin is the acme of perfection and this cream will help you achieve it. APPLICATION You are advised to use the cream two to three times daily. I would suggest at least three times and every time you wash your hands or do the washing up. Any less frequently than this and the cream seems to make little difference. As you can tell you will, therefore, get through a rather substantial amount of cream in a relatively short period of time and so it is well worth buying the larger sized bottle, as I can guarantee it will not rest mouldering on the shelf unused until you are forced to start dusting it as part of your weekly housekeeping chores. The packaging also advises that you should avoid harsh soaps and hot water as these may aggravate the dry skin condition. I would, however, advise not avoiding soap and hot water altogether as the results are far more likely to lead to social isolation than would a few patches of dry skin! EFFECTIVENESS Despite the fact that my husband swears by it, his dry skin really seems to be getting no better and I am beginning to contemplate siphoning out his cream and pouring some el cheapo moisturiser into the empty b
                        ottle in order to save money. As far as I can see it would not make any difference to his skin and it would make a great deal of difference to our bank balance. The other down side is that the cream seems to leave the skin coated with a slimy film and while this may be some people's idea of proof that the cream is really giving the skin a good deep moisturise, I just find it unpleasant and refuse to hold my husband's hand for up to 20 minutes after use. Although the cream seems to have no noticeably miraculous effect, as my mother used to say, 'just think how much worse it would be if you weren't using it'. Moisturising but not convincing!

                          As a nurse I continually have my hands in water and also have to wear latex gloves, as a result my hands became very dry and sore. I tried all sorts of creams and lotions to no avail. I had heard of Vaseline products but had thought them to be old fashioned and not of much value until I received a free sample from a sales rep. The first thing that struck me was the fragrance, hard to describe but i think it is a bit of a fruit mixture. It is non-greasy therefore things don't slip out of your hands ( a good advantage when administering injections) and it is absorbed really quickly. Within a couple of days I found that my hands had completely healed up and where much softer and smoother. I looked round the shops and eventually found the cheapest place to buy 200mls of Vaseline Intensive Care was at Boots for £1.99 and you get advantage points as well. I would recommend this product to anyone whose hands are continually in water, it would be a good idea if it came in bigger bottles with a dispenser pump which we could take to work and leave beside the wash hand basin.

                            We can all remember the flaky kid at school cant we? He was the one who was victimised by hordes of nasty spotty faced kids shouting cornflake at the top of their squeaky voices as the bedraggled soul as he crossed the schoolyard. We also know that from time to time you wake up in a cold sweat in the middle of the night, after a nightmare that you were the flaky kid! Fear not and sleep soundly in your land of slumber because there is hope for us all, and it wont cost an arm and a leg either. The wonderful chemist types at Elida Faberge, after they have created loads of different shades of red for women spread all over their lips in an attempt to attract a member of the opposite sex (or perhaps even the same, who knows?), have come up with an answer. Praise the Lord because ‘Vaseline Intensive Care’ is available and easier to get hold of than a drunken student during Fresher week! (Guess what week it is!?) Available in all chemists, Boots, Superdrug, etc, as well as most supermarkets it couldn’t be easier to buy, and at around £2 for a 200ml bottle it wont break the bank either. The special Vaseline formula was developed by a crack group of Shetland Pony, scientists, who also cleverly added a multi-vitamin complex to help care for everyday dry skin. Vaseline say that it is to produce fast and long lasting relief, leaving the skin feel soft and smooth and looking healthy. All of which I cannot argue with, in fact it does exactly what it says on the bottle. The lotion is easily absorbed and doesn’t leave the skin feeling greasy like some other moisturisers do. The glory of it all is top off by the fact that it can be used for all of the body! Wow! The mild formula means that its safe for all ages ranging from little crawling toddlers right up to wrinkly old grannies, who will be transformed to a 27 year old stunner after three weeks of using the stuff. (Perhaps not but hey it’s worth a
                            try after all) It can also be used after showering, and after shaving which I thought was very useful, because sometimes your manly skin can feel a bit rough when you’ve just dragged a piece of metal across it a couple of times. The only thing I was a bit concerned about is that it does not display the usual ‘we do not test on animals’ logo that has become increasingly popular in recent years. I have to admit however I did not look for it when purchasing the lotion so I can’t see why I have this little voice telling me off in the back of my head. Nether the less Vaseline intensive care, Dry skin and body lotion, with multi-vitamin complex, does the job very well, and has left my skin feeling very soft indeed. Perhaps a bit to soft, but hey who cares? It also has quite a pleasant aroma after application, but for the more conscious of you, it is obvious that you are using it because of the smell. Any complaints, questions or comments (about the animal thing, or anything at all) can be made to, (UK) Consumer Bureau, Elida Faberge Ltd, Freepost, Admail 1000, London, SW1A 2XX. Or by the freephone number of 0800 591720. I have no complaints with the product, so will not be writing to voice my opinion, one thing I noticed however was the lack of a web site. I know that Elida Faberge are an old company, with deep historic roots, but perhaps they should move with the times and add a web address to the existing forms of contact. Anyway folks hope you enjoyed the read, and I’ll catch you again sometime soon, Will. P.S. for any of you who were wondering, no I wasn’t the flaky kid at school, I unfortunately was one of the spotty oiks on occasion who poked fun at him, so if your reading mate, sorry cause it comes to us all in the end!
