Vaseline Intensive Rescue Lotion Answers Your Dry Skin SOS

20.3oz IR Repairing Moisture Fragrance FreeI 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: Prada Candy Eau de Parfum Gift Set

prada candy

This Christmas, give the gift of Candy. Not sugar plums or candy canes. I’m talking about another sweet treat.

If Prada Candy isn’t on your recipient’s wish list, it’s because she hasn’t smelled it yet. With notes of white musks, noble benzoin and caramel, Prada Candy isn’t overwhelmingly saccharine, as the name might imply. Powder tempers the sugar, giving this gourmand a classic sophistication.

Prada 'Candy' Eau de Parfum Gift SetYou could buy the 1.7 oz bottle for $80. Or for $2 more, you could pick up the Prada Candy Eau de Parfum Gift Set, which includes an eau de parfum (1.7 oz.), body lotion (2.5 oz.) and mini eau de parfum (0.24 oz.).

sephora favorites Fragrance Sampler for HerFragrance is a very personal thing. Unless you know the recipient’s favorite scent (or he/she has requested something specific), fragrance can be a tricky gift. Even if you know the “notes” that the person likes, perfumes and colognes react to differently on everyone…so it could be a real hit, or a big miss.

From the flirtatious, alluring notes of Betsey Johnson’s Too Too Pretty, to the delicate blend of berries and flowers in Hanae Mori’s timeless Butterfly, she can try them all, select her favorite, and visit a Sephora store to receive the full-size gift.
