Vaseline Intense Rescue Lotion Comes In Handy

This past weekend, I embarked one of my favorite winter activities. I channeled my inner Betty Crocker by baking some delicious oatmeal and walnut chocolate chip cookies with my son, Westley.

I’ve never made cookies with him, so I wasn’t expecting to make such a mess.  But to be fair, any activity with a 2-year-old boy is going to get your hands dirty.

Anyway, between the measuring, mixing and sectioning the dough on the baking sheet, we must have washed our hands at least six or seven times.  But, afterwards, my hands were no worse for wear – because right before I rewarded my tummy with a tasty treat, I treated my hands to a generous helping of Vaseline Intensive Rescue Lotion.

Vaseline Intensive Rescue Lotion is proven to relieve dry skin after just one application, so it was the first thing I reached for after the cookies went into the oven. It also helps to heal dry skin in three days, so slathering it on regularly has imparted softness that rivals my toddler’s.

Vaseline Intensive Rescue Lotion Answers Your Dry Skin SOS

20.3oz IR Repairing Moisture Fragrance Free Vaseline Intensive Rescue Lotion Answers Your Dry Skin SOSI 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:

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).

Holiday Gift Guide 2012: Carol’s Daughter Joy of Vanilla Body Indulgence Trio

Carols Daughter Joy of Vanilla Body Indulgence Trio Holiday Gift Guide 2012: Carols Daughter Joy of Vanilla Body Indulgence TrioCarol’s Daughter Joy of Vanilla Body Indulgence Trio is the gift for that vanilla lover in your life. I, myself, am a vanilla fiend. It’s my absolute favorite fragrance. But I have a discerning nose. Not all confection-scented beauty products are created equal and many are downright amateur and juvenile. Carol’s Daughter, on the other hand, does vanilla justice and offers some of the most elegant and inspired takes on the classic scent.

“Vanilla is one of my favorite notes to work with; it blends so beautifully with almost anything. Vanilla is warm and loving and conjures up happy thoughts, and at the same time it can add a subtle sensuality to a scent. Included in this set are two of our most popular vanilla fragrances from the past few years and an exciting new vanilla.” —Lisa Price, Founder of Carol’s Daughter

Carol’s Daughter Joy of Vanilla Body Indulgence Trio in Joy Box includes:

  • 4 oz. Sugar-Dipped Vanilla Body Cream (notes of water lily, vanilla and cotton candy)
  • 4 oz. Vanilla Petals Body Cream (notes of French marshmallow, soft florals and vanilla)
  • 4 oz. Vanilla Truffle Body Cream (notes of creamy vanilla, white chocolate and turbinado sugar) (more…)

Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel

dermalogica+special+cleansing+gel Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel

is a concentrated, soap-free, foaming gel designed to thoroughly remove impurities without disturbing the skin’s natural moisture balance. It contains no artificial fragrance or color and is ideal for all skin types. In a word, it’s perfect. If you’ve ever wished for soft skin and a clear complexion, this is your genie in a bottle (no rubbing required).

It’s very gentle on the skin, yet super effective at removing dirt, grime and even makeup. Special Gel Cleanser feels like a dream when you apply it to your skin – like silk, or something equally smooth and luxurious. If I had to compare it so something you might be familiar with, I’d say it’s akin to a high-end Cetaphil. I loved this product from the day I started using it, back in late 2010. But I didn’t realize how much my skin loved this cleanser until I started testing other cleansers last month and my skin straight up rebelled. Breakouts re-appeared and it completely dried out. Since then, my skin has been on a strict Dermalogica diet and I’ve seen improvement every day.

An 8.4 oz bottle of this good stuff costs $33, which sounds like a lot for a face cleanser. But – believe me – it’s worth every penny. Special Cleansing Gel is special, indeed.

Makeup Mondays With Mario: Fix For Flaky Foundation

Celebrity makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic is answering your burning beauty questions!!! Every Monday, he will answer a beauty/skin care question as part of a weekly column on Spoiled Pretty, Makeup Mondays with Mario.

dry+skin Makeup Mondays With Mario: Fix For Flaky FoundationHelp me, Mario. I have super dry skin and no matter what I do or how much moisturizer I use, my skin always looks flaky when I wear foundation. What am I doing wrong? If anyone can help me, I know it’s you!

Thanks,
Kaitlin

Hi Kaitlin,

Flaky skin can be a result of a skin condition such as eczema. If you haven’t already done so, please have your skin checked by a dermatologist to determine what the problem is – if any – and the appropriate treatment you may need.

I find that with very dry skin, it’s good to use a tinted moisturizer. Stay away from setting powders which will absorb all the skin’s moisture and bring attention to flaky, dry areas.

Another option is to use Bare Minerals mineral powder foundation – it works beautifully on dry, flaky skin and even gives a glow!

Thanks for visiting Makeup Mondays with Mario!

Mario
