This is a very good body moisturizer for dry skin. It contains proven emollients, antioxidant plant oils and vitamin-based antioxidants, and some good skin-identical ingredients. It is not rated a Best Product because it contains the formaldehyde-releasing preservative DMDM hydantoin. However, it is still worth considering and the price is great.

Penetrates deeply to smooth away roughness and the appearance of dark spots, so your skin can glow from within.

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.

    great product, but not for me
    • I recently bought this product because I've been suffering extremely dry skin. The product smells great and felt great(not too greasy, instantly helped with the dry skin). unfortunately for me, I have highly sensitive skin and this product made me break out in hives within a few hours of use. I'm sure it would make someone else a great product, but it's just not for me.
