Vaseline Intensive Rescue Relief and Repair Balm

NB Sadly this product has now been discontinued. A real shame as it was genuinely one of the best products I have ever used on my skin and sorted me right out when my skin was really bad. My full review is still here for what it's worth... In its absence I'd recommend the Vaseline lotion, link below.

After the revelation that I was able to use the Vaseline intensive rescue moisture locking body lotion that I always used to use, I went to Tesco to stock up on a great big bottle (400ml). Annoyingly nearly all other Vaseline variants were on offer apart from the Intensive Rescue range. Typical! Anyway, I saw that there was a Vaseline intensive rescue relief and repair balm in the same range. It was £5 for a smallish bottle. The front said that it was for very dry skin. I bought one!

This product is like a much thicker, more intensive version of the lotion I was already using. My skin really liked it! Because it's so thick it's much harder to rub in than the lotion, and I ended up needing to use quite a lot. In fact I probably got through the whole lot in under a week. I was using it all over my body, at least once a day - just after my shower in the morning and sometimes just before bed too. I suppose it's more intended for very dry patches. It's not greasy though and was more like a thick white cream - it's not like ointment or Vaseline petroleum jelly. Although I could have done with a bigger bottle it's agreat size fo taking away with you.

I would definitely recommend this product. I'd say if you're struggling with terribly dry skin, then regular application of this should sort you out (though you may get through a couple of bottles). Then when your skin's a bit more under control you could switch to the lotion, which is much looser and lighter. There is also a cream in the range, which comes in a tub. I imagine this is somewhere in between the lotion and the balm. I've actually just received a free sample of it in the post so watch this space!

  1. I found that the dispensing system only gives you half the cream, but you can fix that.

    Take the disc out of the bottom of the tube and you then have a "plunger" that you can push to compress the remaining cream towards the dispenser. You need either long fingers or cutlery works well too. Why do they hide half the product in this way, I have to do this process on every tube I buy.

    As for the cream, I keep it in the fridge and it is the only thing thick enough to soothe my painfully dry forehead for a whole day.

    I panicked when I saw it was no longer stocked at my supermarket and can see that Superdrug are doing 3 for 2 on Vaseline stuff at the moment, may be just online, but check in store too.

  2. That's a top tip there Grant thanks very much! It's not cheap so you want to get at every last drop. Love 3 for 2s - you want to stock up when you've finally found something that works. Keeping eczema cream in the fridge is a great idea too for extra cooling effect :)
