Vaseline Intensive Rescue Moisture Locking Body Lotion Review
After every shower, I always have to moisturise, without fail! Back a few months ago I was slathering on the body butter like no tomorrow, but recently the temperature has started to pick up slightly so for the last month and a bit I’ve switched to using body lotions with my current choice being the Vaseline Intensive Rescue Moisture Locking Body Lotion.
The Vaseline Intensive Rescue Moisture Locking Body Lotion is an unfragranced body lotion which is suitable for dry and very dry skin types. Initially I was expecting the lotion to be thicker in consistency so it surprised me when it turned out to actually be considerably light, if a little watery!
The lotion is easily absorbed into the skin, and doesn’t leave any sticky or greasy residue. It does lock in moisture to an extent and my skin certainly feels hydrated for a number of hours, although perhaps not quite as long as 24 hours as they so boldly claim!
However having used the Vaseline Intensive Rescue Moisture Locking Body Lotion for a number of weeks now, my final verdict is that I’ve found that it’s not quite hitting the right notes for me. Since the formula is not as dense as my usual body butters, I’m having to apply more product than normal in order to cover my whole body so I’m going through this bottle quite quickly already! In terms of its moisturising properties, I have definitely come across products such as the Dove Indulgent Nourishment Moisturiser which would fit the bill better and use less product at the same time.
Vaseline is a very renowned brand in the skin care/body care world and I’ve used many of their products over the years, so this Intensive Rescue Moisture Locking Body Lotion taken me aback.
A 400 ml bottle costs around £4.50 which isn’t too unreasonable, but may explain why I’ve found the formula to be a bit lacking.
Have you tried the Vaseline Intensive Rescue Moisture Locking Body Lotion before?
