Mystery Body Lotion: The Big Reveal
You know I don’t like to keep you guys hanging. So enough of the suspense! That mystery body lotion I tested a couple weeks ago turns out to be from a brand I’ve used since I was a baby. Vaseline. I mean, who hasn’t used the classic formula at one point or another? These days, the brand has expanded and now makes creamy, sweet-scented body lotions. You wouldn’t expect such an elegant formula to be found at the drugstore, but whaddaya know? Vaseline has done it again.
The product I tested is a new formula that debuted in January: Vaseline Total Moisture, which includes a range of lotions that feel pretty darn awesome on the skin, but they also do a body good. They are made with a unique mixture of skin-loving ingredients that impart multiple lightweight layers of moisture, called a Stratys-3 complex. The lotion sinks right in, which is exceptional for something so intensely hydrating. Here are the three key ingredients in the lotion’s lovely potion:
- Glycerol Quat – A molecule discovered by Unilever (the company that manufactures Vaseline) that delivers optimal moisturization to very top layer of the skin’s surface. GQ acts as a powerful hydrating agent by attracting more water than other ingredients.
- Glycerin – A moisturizing ingredient that delivers immediate and long-lasting moisture at the core of the skin.
- HEU (Hydroxyethyl Urea) – A powerful little moisturizing ingredient designed to absorb and hold moisture in the deep layer of the surface skin.
The classic formula feels clean and leaves skin looking healthy and soft. The hydration is designed to last 24 hours! The aloe scented formula (the one I tested) provides 8 hours of hydration. The rich cocoa-butter formula imparts a bit of sexy glow and also offers 24 hours of hydration.
Bonus? They’re only $1.99 for 3 oz. The biggest size is only a couple dollars more!
A few of you guys were chosen to test samples. We love all y’all, so thanks for volunteering to participate in this trial, everyone!. Here’s what our testers had to say.
From Bonnie F (Pittsfield, MA):
“I waited for several days without lotion so I could do a true test of the lotion. It was light and flowery. Smelled somewhat like lily of the valley but not overpowering. The lotion soaked right into my skin without feeling greasy. My skin was smooth and soft all day. I would definitely buy and use this product. I was very impressed with the outcome.”
From Crystal Z (Killeen, TX):
“I already use the Vaseline cocoa radiant, so it was no surprise that I was very impressed by this lotion! My skin looks better than ever.”
From Diane S (Kingman, AZ):
“I loved it! I used the body lotion all over my body. Every aspect of the lotion is excellent. I will definitely buy Vaseline Total Moisture lotion for myself and family. And I would recommend Vaseline Total Moisture to others.”
From Angie S (Corona, CA):
“First of all, thanks for the amazing opportunity. I'm absolutely in love with this product. I must admit, I never considered my skin dry, until one of my good friends pointed it out. I might add that my good friend was a male, truly not one of my favorite moments. Nevertheless, this body lotion is a true lifesaver. I use it on the regular and receive plenty of compliments.”
