This body lotion with sunscreen provides broad-spectrum protection that includes avobenzone for reliable UVA (think anti-aging) screening. Unfortunately, that’s the most exciting news. The rest of the formula is quite ordinary, with aloe playing big role but aloe alone isn’t enough to help dry skin improve. Antioxidants and sophisticated anti-aging ingredients are absent, and this contains a preservative (methylisothiazolinone) that’s generally not recommended for use in leave-on products due to its sensitizing potential. The price is nice, but for a few dollars more you can get a significantly better body lotion formula.

Vaseline® Total Moisture® Aloe Fresh Lotion with SPF 15 leaves your skin feeling light and fresh. Our light feel formula combines pure aloe and Stratys-3TM multi-layer moisture absorbing quickly, infusing moisture at the top, core and deep down layers, leaving skin hydrated.

Active Ingredients: Octisalate (5.0%) Avobenzone (3.0%) Ensulizole (1.0%) Inactive Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Stearic Acid, Glycol Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Dimethicone, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice Powder, Dihydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, Hydroxyethyl Urea, Glyceryl Stearate, Carbomer, Caprylyl Glycol, Cetyl Alcohol, Xanthan Gum, Fragrance, Stearamide Amp, Potassium Hydroxide, Phenoxyethanol, Disodium EDTA, Methylisothiazolinone.

The Vaseline brand is perhaps among the oldest and most well-known around the world. Since the advent of Vaseline Petroleum Jelly in the late 1800s, the brand has been synonymous with treating dry, chafed, cracked skin. Although petroleum jelly is among the best ingredients for preventing moisture loss and healing dry skin, it must be said that skin requires more than one ingredient to look and function at its healthy best. To that end, Vaseline has branched out from its original, ointment-like petroleum jelly to a line of body creams and lotions that contain a range of helpful ingredients for dry skin. Their body-care formulas aren't the most exciting around, but there are some good options. Adding to the handful of commendable products are Vaseline's widespread availability and relatively low price point.

This is definitely a line to shop carefully, because many of the body lotion formulas aren’t all that great; in fact, most of them pale in comparison to competing brands sold at the drugstore. Despite Vaseline’s history, they’re not consistently keeping pace with what modern research has shown is necessary to significantly improve dry skin. If you focus on their best products, you can find some bona-fide beauty bargains but again, this isn’t a line to shop blindly.

    Is this product discontinued?
    • I love this lightweight lotion! It does have a fragrance but it falls in the fresh/clean category, so it is not offensive. I filled a bottle for my purse to use during the day on my hands for more SPF coverage after washing my hands throughout the day. I can no longer find it on store shelves and the company website no longer lists it on their site. What happened?

    Hi, and thanks for you comments! Companies do change their formulas from time to time, and this is likely the case that happened here. We will revisit this review and update it as necessary based on the most recent ingredient list. Thanks for the heads up!
