If you’ve ever been to Arizona, especially during the summer, then you’re familiar with its dry climate. As a result, I end up with dry skin ALL the time so I’m constantly slathering lotion over my skin to keep it moisturized, which I wouldn’t mind if I didn’t have to do it so often.
Recently, Influenster gave me the opportunity to try out and review Vaseline’s intensive care advanced repair lotion. Admittedly, I used it a couple of times and then stopped but found that it was really useful after giving birth.
I have yet to relive my birth story on this blog, but to keep it short, it took 3 tries to get the epidural place correctly which meant that 2 of the 3 times, rather than the medication running directly into my bloodstream, it was running into my skin which caused A LOT of dryness. I’m talking sand monster dry here. In any event, my back felt disgusting and nothing I did seemed to work. Drinking lots of water and keeping hydrated? No. Trying to put on other products that boasted about keep your skin moisturized? Nope. Heck, even cocoa butter was no match.
Finally, after nearly giving up, I had R start rubbing Vaseline’s intensive care advanced repair lotion on my back and saw a marked improvement in just a few days. A week and a half later and the skin on my back is back to normal. I no longer feel crusty and gross and the nickname I gave myself no longer applies.
If you’re struggling with dry skin or skin that needs intensive healing after exposure to the elements or anything else that causes cracks and dryness, I highly recommend Vaseline’s intensive care advanced repair lotion. It did wonders for me and I have no doubt that it’d do the same for you too!
