REVIEW:Vaseline Men Body Lotion

I have a confession to make.Whenever I see women with beautiful,long,elegant fingers on their soft and feminine hands,I envy them.Such beautiful hands just beg to be held and adorned with diamond rings.

Now don't be alarmed I do not have a creepy hand fetish.Its just that I have a condition called........Man hands(hangs head in shame).OK I will stop being dramatic now but the fact remains that even though i don't do a smidgen of housework or wash my hands multiple times my hands are neither soft and smooth like every other woman on the planet nor do i have smooth even toned knuckles.So i am always in the search for something to help me shake hands without being afraid of scratching people with my sandpaper palms(this is sadly not an exaggeration).
So as i was helping my mom in the supermarket one day my eyes fell on Vaseline MEN Body Lotion.Now my brain immediately thought Man Hands=Man Lotion.And thats how i ended up with this miracle.
Here's What It Claims:

Vaseline Men Fresh Hydrating Lotion with Vitamin E factor helps FIX and BUILD Men's Skin health.
The lotion is available in 200ml packs@ Rs 140 and 120 ml packs at Rs 75.I bought the 120ml pack.

My Experience With The Product: I had just finished my exams and had a lot of free time on my hands so i decided to put this time to good use.I used this lotion 4-5 times a day and made it a point to reapply every time my hands touched water.The Lotion is very smooth and runny in texture.Its not thick and gets easily absorbed into your skin leaving it feeling moisturized and smooth.The fragrance is quite strong and reminds me of old fashioned shaving cream.But being a men's lotion this is not unexpected.

On the first use I did not notice much difference.My hands were moisturized but I could still feel rough hard skin on my palms.But I persevered and by day three even my Mom could feel a difference when she touched my hands.Usually when I bend my fingers backwards(I don't know why I do this so please don't ask) my skin feels tight.dry and rough to the point where it hurts to do so.But now i could easily bend my fingers and the skin was smoother and my hands softer.I loved this product so much that I finished the whole bottle(being a cosmetic slut I keep changing products even if they are doing a good job).Now I wanted to go and buy a new bottle as soon as possible to keep my hands in great shape but I couldn't go shopping for many days.And what i observed was that my hands remained soft and smooth in spite of not using the lotion for days.I guess it did what it claimed and really did FIX and BUILD my skin so now I did not need as much lotion as before.Yippieee.

My Rating: I give this product 4.5 stars.I'm only deducting half a star so that they bring out a women's variation with the same formulation but a yummy fragrance.

  7. I would have never though of using a men's lotion for my hands, that was very creative of you. Nice to know it works so well, maybe I'll get this for my hubby! Nice review :D

  8. I was so desperate I wud have used anything on my hands.Just glad this worked b4 I resorted to cooking oil :P

  9. If you ever want to try something different in the future, Lush Lemony Flutter and The Body Shop Hemp Hand Cream worked amazing on my hands. They are amazing!

  10. Hey Thanx 4 the tip,Lush lemony flutter sounds nice :)

  11. Hey sounds great...I'll surely try it next time coz right now I'm using Vaseline healthy white which is also very good.

  12. Do try it if u have dry skin/patches.But i have to say the healthy white lotion smells better :P

  13. Shaving creams should not just have a soothing and relaxing effect on one's skin but shaving creams should also nourish the skin like a water to a plant.
