Hi everybody,

When winter comes, our skin flashes the S.O.S signal to us. In this case, S.O.S stands for "Save Our Skins." Two years in a row, the U.S has experienced extremely cold winters. Since I went through the Bitter Winter of 2010, this year I wised up and lotioned up until I left for the tropical country of Vietnam. But for two months, my skin was in a state of bliss thanked to Vaseline Intensive Rescue Repairing Moisture Lotion.

Vaseline Intensive Rescue Repairing Moisture Lotion ($4.49 for 10 fl. oz.)
 Wanna know more about it? Jump!

First of all, the Vaseline Intensive Rescue line belongs to the regular line-up of Vaseline lotions. The price ranges from $4.50 to $8-10 USD depending on the size. Now, Vaseline came out with Sheer Infusion in 2009 which contains light-weight lotions with more moisturizing properties.

The claim
The ingredients
 Since it contains petrolatum, an occlusive, this body lotion can seal water to your skin. It also contains glycerin, stearic acid, glycol stearate, and glyceryl stearate, which are moisturizing ingredients. While it is labelled as fragrance-free, this lotion has a nice soft scent to mask the actual scent of the ingredients. This is a practice in body care formulation to add some fragrance to mask the scent of the product. The scent is very mild and evaporates after a while.

I squeezed a small amount of lotion on my palm for demonstration...
...then rubbed it in and waited for it to dry. Can you tell the difference?
From the two pictures above, you can see how better moisturized the palm of my hand was after I applied lotion. Although I did not use Vaseline Intensive Care lotion for a while, I remember liking the watery texture very much. You see, I am not a fan of thick, buttery lotions at all. I prefer my body lotion to be light, yet moisturized. Unlike the Intensive Care lotions, this Intensive Rescue one is both light and moisturized. It absorbs fast to my skin and does not leave a greasy, filmy feeling. The only downside is I have to use about twice the amount of product to moisturize my body, compared to when I use Sheer Infusion. However, the size of the bottle is quite generous and should last for a while.

Share the Joy

Since I became a beauty blogger, I have accrued quite a lot of bottles of lotion. Whenever I visited the local library, I always saw the hardworking librarians wearing disposable gloves to protect their hands. Yet, their hands are still wrecked from the dryness. So, before I left the States, I packed a couple of bottles of unopened Vaseline lotions, including Intensive Rescue Repairing Moisture, and sent them as a gift to the librarians. Needless to say, they were very happy and the next thing I knew was a librarian showing me her soft hands.

Vaseline Intensive Rescue set up a website with information to help people with dry skin called dryskinrescue.com. They also have a team called the Dry Skin Patrol consists of Dr. Jessica Wu, a celebrity dermatologist, and some beauty bloggers. This team travels around the country to see how Vaseline Intensive Rescue Repairing Moisture Lotion fare out. Below is a video of the Dry Skin Patrol in Coney Island. I salute their bravery as I would pretty much prefer the warm and sunny weather :) You can also follow the Dry Skin Patrol on Facebook to see where they are going next.
