Serums are a part of my daily skincare routine, for my face, that is. However, I’ve never used a serum for the body until I was offered, through Blog Meets Brand, to try out the Vaseline Intensive Care Advance Relief Healing Serum.
Vaseline claims their Intensive Care™ Healing Serums are not just a regular body lotion. These serums combine the power of three unique, highly concentrated ingredients to moisturize and heal dry skin.
1. PPAR Activators help penetrate the skin to replenish lipids and moisturize to boost the skin’s natural renewal cycle.
2. Elastomers provide a premium sensory experience with ingredients that deliver a luxurious silky, smooth feel.
3. Micro-droplets of Vaseline® Jelly form a protective layer to prevent moisture loss
I haven’t tried Vaseline products in a while. I’m talking about years! To my surprise, the Vaseline Intensive Care Advance Relief Healing Serum did some amazing things to help repair my skin from the damage done during the winter.
First, the light scent of amber and jasmine are what caught the attention of my senses when squeezing out the Vaseline Intensive Care Advance Relief Healing Serum from the tube. The scent isn’t too heavy, and lasts for just the right amount of time on the skin. Plus, it doesn’t interfere with whatever I’m wearing for the day. I will also note that the fragrance is very feminine. My husband, who sometimes uses my lotions couldn’t bring himself to use it because he said, “I will smell like a woman.” But, that’s better for me. LOL.
The texture of the Vaseline Intensive Care Advance Relief Healing Serum is that of a lightweight cream, instead of fluid-like, which most of the serums I’ve used are like. Even without it being like a typical serum, the Vaseline Intensive Care Advance Relief Healing Serum is like luxury in a tube. I find that it moisturizes more like a balm without the heaviness and greasiness.
After using the Vaseline Intensive Care Advance Relief Healing Serum, both during the night and day, even after a week of use, my skin showed a noticeable difference. It looked healthy, hydrated, and didn’t itch from being dry. After continued use, my skin is just amazing! I sometimes catch myself rubbing my legs because they’re so smooth and soft.
The squeeze tube packaging made it easy for me to get the very last drop of the Vaseline Intensive Care Advance Relief Healing Serum out of the tube. Now, I unfortunately have to replace it.
I would recommend the Vaseline Intensive Care Advance Relief Healing Serum to anyone looking to heal dry skin, or maintain healthy, hydrated skin.
The 6.8 fl oz tube of Vaseline Intensive Care Advance Relief Healing Serum retails for $8.99 and can be found at your local drugstore.
