I'm no doctor

I am no doctor but I have a prescription for dry skin! Vaseline has developed a prescription strength lotion, Vaseline Clinical Therapy, that works hard to smooth over rough dry skin. My mother uses some harsh chemicals while cleaning the house and she doesn't always use gloves so her fingers will have a little rough feeling to it if she doesn't moisturize really well. I prescribed this product to my mom and her hands, including her fingers, feel 10 times better. My sister is another "prescribe the nation" vaseline user and she believes this lotion has made her smooth skin even silkier.
I always thought my hands were pretty smooth already so I wasnt expecting much of a difference but the more I used this product the softer my hands seemed to become. If you were blindfolded I would double dare you to identify the skin of a new born baby after touching the baby's skin then toughing my hands. I think I would give that baby a run for his money!

The product comes in "light &fresh fragrance" and unfragranced but even the unfragranced version has a smell to it, in my humble opinion. The scent isnt bad, its just not the fruity or nutty scent that I usually gravitate toward. I used it for about a week and I must say that I like this lotion, which includes soybeans.

I would be remiss in my pjd duties if I didn't mention that two parabens are listed in the ingredients.

I'm in the market for a new lotion, doggone it! I deal with eczema on my thighs and neck during the winter months. I get tired of slathering Vaseline on my areas and looking all greasy. My hands are also feeling a little rough if I must admit. Hmmm.

LOL @ you and these parabens.
