I dread the cold. My skin gets Sahara dry and I’m prone to eczema. Not all year round – just December through March. Sometimes, my eczema is just a minor irritation. Other days, I’m covered with dry patches and the itchiness is almost too much to endure. In the decade that I’ve been suffering from this seasonal affliction, I’ve learned that prevention is the best medicine. So when the mercury drops, I become a moisturizing fool. Day and night, I layer on the lotion – praying that I can keep the bumps at bay.
But this winter, I’m very confident that I can keep my eczema under control – thanks to my new secret weapon: Vaseline Intensive Rescue Lotion.
Vaseline Intensive Rescue is a line of powerful and therapeutic moisturizing lotions that not only feel good, but also have been proven to relieve dry skin after just one use and help heal dry skin in three days. I’ve been using it for a few days and I can assure you that this is not hyperbole. I noticed a dramatic improvement in my skin the first time I used it. After smoothing it on, I was shocked at how it instantly hydrated my skin (no more itchy tightness) – leaving it silky smooth all day, without greasy residue.
Though it works like magic, there is actually some hard core science behind Vaseline Intensive Rescue lotion. Stratys-3, a multi-layer moisturizing complex, infuses and suspends moisture across multiple layers of the skin (the top, the core and deep down).
Now, I know some of you are thinking, “I don’t have eczema. What can Vaseline Intensive Rescue do for me?” Well, it instantly boosts moisture levels by 300% and delivers 24 hours of hydration…so if you’re in the market for a new winter lotion, you’d be a smart gal to add it to your shopping list.
Vaseline Intensive Rescue comes in three variants:
- Vaseline® Intensive Rescue® Repairing Moisture Lotion deeply heals skin and is fragrance free
- Vaseline® Intensive Rescue® Soothing Moisture Lotion calms and relieves itchy dry skin, and features a light chamomile fragrance
- Vaseline® Intensive Rescue® Healing Hand Cream accelerates the healing of dry, rough hands and is fragrance free
Stay tuned for an upcoming post where I’ll put Vaseline Intensive Rescue Lotion to the ultimate test. My winter challenge will be baking cookies with Westley (cooking with a 2-year-old is going to require lots of hand washing), and I’ll report back on how Intensive Rescue comes in handy (pun intended).
