I’m in a long-term relationship with Vaseline Intensive sầu Care Advanced Repair Lotion. Ever since I discovered it in high school, I’ve used it pretty much every night before going lớn sleep. When I’m running low on this sản phẩm, I always, always make sure to lớn order more right away. Finding the right lotion for your needs is very similar to lớn dating—there may be many fish in the sea, but a lot of them are duds. I’ve tried a LOT of lotions over the course of my life. My biggest qualm with them is that they’re often very greasy, making it exceedingly difficult to complete day-to-day activities—even something as simple as lifting a heavy mug. Sometimes they’re so thichồng that they feel like cement on my hands (cough, Vanicream, cough).

But if you have sầu h& eczema or any type of condition that requires you khổng lồ constantly take extra care of your skin barrier, applying lotion is a necessity, not a choice. I’d rather make bởi with a greasy lotion than no lotion at all, if I have sầu khổng lồ choose between the two. But after I discovered Vaseline Intensive sầu Care Advanced Repair Lotion, I never looked baông chồng. Sure, I still try out other lotions and creams every now and then, but I always keep a bottle of Vaseline Intensive sầu Care Advanced Repair Lotion on my nightst& because it’s affordable, easy to find, and decently moisturizing for my skin.

Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair Lotion review

Vaseline Intensive sầu Care Advanced Repair Lotion comes packaged in a standard plastic bottle, with either a flip-top lid or a pump, depending on the form size you buy. I like lớn buy the larger size because it comes in an easy-to-dispense pump and it also tends to be cheaper than the smaller sizes. Whenever I travel, I dispense a pump’s worth of lotion inlớn a travel-kích cỡ container for each night/day I’m going to be away, và then include a few extra pumps just in case. This tends to work out pretty well. I’ve sầu even used this lotion as a facial moisturizer in a pinch, even though I don’t normally use it for this purpose when I’m at trang chính. It doesn’t break me out and does a decent job of moisturizing my face.

That said, it does contain mineral oil and petrolatum, so it will leave sầu your hands feeling slightly greasy after application. However, I find that the oily residue is not that bad compared lớn other lotions—and it tends to feel much less oily after you let it dry/soak in for a few minutes. Dimethicone is also a nice moisturizer & is classified as a “skin protectant” by the FDA. Some lotions even danh sách dimethicone as an active ingredient with the percentage included, though this particular lotion does not.

It does not contain any added fragrance, & I couldn’t detect much of an odor from the normal ingredients at all. It smells vaguely reminiscent of Vaseline petroleum jelly, if you’ve sầu ever sniffed a tub of that before.

I mainly use this lotion to lớn moisturize my hands at night. It rubs in pretty nicely and has a nice và creamy consistency that helps protect my hands from eczema flareups. The label claims that it contains “micro droplets” of Vaseline petroleum jelly throughout the lotion base. This helps make it less oily than applying 100% petrolatum (Vaseline) so that it’s suitable for everyday use, while still delivering the amazing skin protective sầu benefits of petroleum jelly.


This lotion is not quite rich enough for the days when my hands are extra dry & cracked in the winter. On those types of days, I usually apply a layer of this lotion & then follow it up with something richer like CeraVe Moisturizing Cream, & then seal all of it in with a layer of Vaseline for good measure. In the picture above sầu, you can see that the Vaseline (left) is more watery & less waxy than Cerave sầu Moisturizing Cream (right), và then put on some lightweight cotton gloves. I find that this 1-2-3 punch helps my hands look và feel significantly better in the morning.
