With this cold weather we have been having recently I have found that my skin is really suffering. It is prone to dryness at the best of times but I find the cold weather really effects my skin badly. When I walk the dog in the morning I can feel the biting winds on my skin. I need something to protect it and I was really pleased to be asked to try the Vaseline Intensive Rescue Products range.
There are a number of different products in the range and they are all aimed at making your skin feel soft and protected, despite the cold weather. I was looking forward to trying them out and seeing if they helped my skin.
Vaseline Intensive Rescue Moisture Locking Body Cream (RRP £4.07)
The Vaseline Intensive Rescue Moisture Locking Cream comes in a tub and is meant to keep the skin looking soft and supple whilst providing a moisturised feeling that lasts all day. It also is meant to accelerate dry skin’s ability to repair itself.
After opening the lid and undoing the silver seal I found quite a thick white cream inside. The cream has no noticeable smell and when I put it on my skin it absorbed it really quickly. My skin instantly looked less dry and felt a lot softer. The effect lasted for ages as well and I have noticed a definite improvement while I have been using this cream.
Vaseline Lip Therapy
I always find I suffer from dry cracked lips when the weather is cold and these little pots of Vaseline Lip Therapy are ideal for carrying in the handbag. A slick of this makes my lips feel much softer and it protects against the harsh wind as well.
Vaseline Intensive Rescue Repair and Protect Lotion (RRP £4.99)
Vaseline Intensive Rescue Repair and Protect Lotion can be used to target areas of extreme dry skin and will help to prevent dry skin flaring up. It is meant to increase the ability of the skin to repair itself and relieve dry itchy skin. I have some areas of skin on my wrists that are really dry and itchy and tried this out on these areas. Again it is white in colour but is a lot more runny in texture than the Vaseline Intensive Rescue Moisture Locking Body Cream. This will be because it is a lotion but it was still absorbed quickly into the skin. My skin felt less itchy after using it and after continued use the dry patches are definitely clearing up and are almost gone. It is unfragranced and hypo-allergenic which is good as my skin can react to some skin creams.
Vaseline Moisture Locking Body Lotion (RRP £3.36)
Vaseline Intensive Rescue Moisture Locking Body Lotion is a lotion version of the Vaseline Intensive Rescue Moisture Locking Cream. It will also keep your skin soft and supple and provide moisture that lasts all day. It is a white lotion in appearance and while not being as thick as the cream still provides lots of moisture to the skin leaving it feeling soft. This effect lasted all day, despite being out in the cold weather.
I really liked this range of products and have definitely noticed a big improvement in my skin since using them. You can find Vaseline Intensive Rescue products in most supermarkets and chemists including Superdrug and Boots.
