Vaseline Intensive Rescue: Review

I don't know about you all, but every winter I seem to deal with dry and itchy skin. That is just the nature of living in the dry Canadian Prairies, yet each year I go on the hunt for products to help deal with it.

Recently I was sent some great products from Vaseline, and I can't wait to tell you all about them.

About Vaseline:

In 1870, Robert Chesebrough discovered a 100% natural product, rich in minerals from deep within the earth, which had remarkable skin-healing properties. That product was petroleum jelly, which Robert Chesebrough started to commercialize with the brand name Vaseline®.
Chesebrough was motivated by two powerful forces: a passion to understand the skin, and an intense curiosity that drove him to make his discoveries. We, his heirs, share that passion and curiosity. It's what drives us, and makes us excited about what we do.
Your skin is amazing. It's an incredibly complex set of interdependent systems which even today we don't fully understand. It protects us from adverse climate and from infection. It recreates and regenerates itself throughout our lives. It is waterproof, yet it can emit water.
Many people never stop to think about their skin. Those that do, however, are more inclined to place their trust in a brand like Vaseline®. The brand that has been passionately studying skin for over 130 years and the one that offers the distilled wisdom of this learning in leading edge products that feel, smell and care for skin like no other.
Vaseline® makes accessible, everyday skincare products. We don't believe in quick fixes. We believe that health of any sort is about the combination of all the small choices you make each day. We know that our products have profound, multiple benefits - and can play a really important role as part of your overall skin regime.
We offer products, but we also offer advice. And we try to share everything we've learned over all those decades about how skin works and how to keep it in great condition.
We make market-leading products in every region of the world.

Vaseline Intensive Rescue - Clinical Therapy:

Vaseline® Clinical Therapy™ - Prescription strength moisturization that feels comfortable on skin - not greasy or sticky.
Healthy skin naturally repairs itself. But extremely dry skin becomes chapped, flaky, red, and itchy. These symptoms are skin’s way of signalling that its proper functioning has broken down.
  • Vaseline® Clinical Therapy™ accelerates the healing of persistently dry skin without feeling sticky or greasy on skin. The prescription strength moisturization instantly relieves very dry & even cracked skin. Regular use will help keep skin its healthy best everyday & prevent the onset of dry skin flare-ups. Helps to restore skin in just 5 days

We understand how to bring your dry skin back to health, which is why we created the prescription strength formula in Vaseline® Clinical Therapy™. A formula proven to rescue dry skin and deliver instant relief, long lasting protection, and sustained recovery. 

Vaseline Intensive Rescue - Extra Strength Lotion 

Properly hydrated skin naturally repairs itself. But many factors - from the environment to heredity - can negatively affect this ability and lead to severe dryness of your skin.
Vaseline® Intensive Rescue® Extra Strength Lotion triples moisture reserves in your skin instantly, then fills in the gaps found in dry, damaged skin to lock moisture in all day, promoting the proper hydrating environment dry skin needs to repair itself.
Very dry skin requires daily maintenance to keep it hydrated and supple and to prevent it from becoming drier. When your skin is well moisturized, its normal cellular functions operate smoothly including your skin's amazing ability to repair itself. With this in mind, we formulated Intensive Rescue® Extra Strength Lotion - a lotion that gives you a way to fight back against very dry skin.
The powerful moisturizing effectiveness of Intensive Rescue® Extra Strength Lotion can be found in its balance of key ingredients - specifically humectants and occlusives.
Humectants, like Glycerin, bind and lock individual water molecules to your skin, while occlusives, like Vaseline® Petroleum Jelly, fill the void of lost lipids and provide a physical barrier to prevent further water loss.
Available with a Chamomile Fragrance or Unfragranced.

My Review:

If you were to look in my bathroom cupboard, you would not see anything different than most women's. A ton of different beauty products, both opened and not. These items include perfume, make up and, of course, body lotions. 

As I deal with dry skin for approximently six months (oh, the joys of a dry Canadian winter), I am always on the hunt for products that work and are also economical. Well with Vaseline Intensive Rescue products I have found the answer.

The three products I received to review are fantastic. Within seconds of applying my skin is smooth with no greasy feeling. I love the light chamomile scent in the Intensive Rescue Extra Strength Lotion but the key perk to me is that I do not react to the lotion. Usually I have a difficult time finding lotions that I do not react to, thanks to having very sensitive skin. But absolutely no reactions have occured with the Vaseline products mentioned above.

If you are looking for a great product to treat dry skin, year round, I highly recommend Vaseline Intensive Rescue  products!

BUY IT: You can purchase Vaseline products, including the entire Intensive Rescue line, at retailer's such as Wal-Mart, Wal-Greens and Target.
