You Gurls have all heard me complain about my dry skin, so when I was given the opportunity to do a “sponsored post” for Vaseline Mature Skin, you know I was thrilled. I have heard of the brand Vaseline all my life, and have even used some of their other lotions, but I was intrigued with the “mature” skin care line.
As much as I want to keep my attitude young and upbeat, my skin has a mind of its own. Dry, scaly, itchy, and just overall old-looking skin is not how I want to look. It isn’t like I haven’t tried to fix my skin, it is just nothing has really worked, so in typical Tania fashion, I just gave up.
I thought my dry skin was something I’d inherited and was that it was just something that I would have to live with. Come to find out the sun, bad habits, and even menopause are all culprits of dry skin. Everyone goes through menopause at a different time but somewhere between the ages of 40 – 60 you start losing estrogen. Estrogen has a lot of functions but one of them is to stimulate the production of skin smoothing collagens and oil. As estrogen declines so do the collagen levels leaving behind dry, itchy, flaky skin. Ahh, the joys of getting older.
Giving up is all well and good, but spring and summer will soon be here and it will be shorts-wearing weather once again. I was REALLY dreading showing my legs with all of the scales. The dry skin is especially noticeable on my legs when I apply sunless tanner, so I was excited at the hope of having smoother, moister legs.
I was concerned when I first received the product because I had read that it had a light fragrance. I have an aversion to most smells, they give me a headache. I’ve walked in the door of some stores only to have to turn around and walk right back out. Can anyone relate? However, the smell was light and did not bother me at all, it was actually quite pleasant! I started applying Vaseline Mature Skin lotion on my legs every morning after I got out of the shower (absorbs quickly and is nongreasy) and every night right before I went to bed. Honestly, I could tell the difference the first day I used it but I thought that it might absorb into my skin and then my legs would be back to looking dry. That didn’t happen! Instead, my legs are smoother, softer, and not dry at all. I even got out the magnifying glass to look at my skin just to see how good it looked. Lol! I looked online to see what was inside this stuff and found out it contains Vitamin B3 known to rebalance skin and PPAR Activators known to help improve skin appearance. I have NO idea what all that means, I just know it works! This is a picture of the first day I used the product.This is a picture after one week of use. Is that close enough for you or should I get out the magnifying glass? Ha!
I live in a small town and couldn’t find the product here locally so I ordered it from Walmart online. It was delivered in a couple of days, so just stay in your pajamas and shop here. The price is RIGHT and I couldn’t be happier. Grab your bottle and get ready for short-wearing season!
