Vaseline Products for Dry Skin and Crusty Feet

Review by Telishia Berry

Vaseline has been around for as long as I can remember. I grew up in a house where Vaseline Petroleum Jelly was a multi-purpose product. We used it as an ash killer, soother of scrapes and burns, lip gloss, eyebrow tamer, hair oil, and more. I even used it to shine my Sunday patent leather shoes for church. Hey, what can I say, I was raised by my grandparents. You know some grandmothers can get a million uses out of one product.

The winter months wreak havoc on my skin, especially my feet. Between pedicures, I need serious feet maintenance. Vaseline Petroleum Jelly helps me with this issue. At night, I use Vaseline to do what I call “Toasting my feet.” I start by buttering my feet, that’s my slang for rubbing the Vaseline on my feet. Then I put on some thick socks or booties and voila! This solves the crusty feet issue. I actually got that tip some years ago from actress Vivica Fox.

Nevertheless, Vaseline is a trusted brand that I have used all my life and I won’t hesitate to try any of their products. According to the statement on their website, Vaseline is on a mission to eliminate dry skin from every woman. Yay! I was on a hunt, trying numerous products to find the best lotion for dry skin. I purchased the Vaseline Cocoa Butter Deep Conditioning Lotion with Vitamin E. This is definitely a great lotion for dry skin. The ingredients include shea butter, sun flower seed oil, soy bean, and Vitamin E. I purchased the 32 oz. bottle from Wal-Mart for about $6. I admit the $1 off coupon affixed to the bottle made it a bit more attractive. I fall for a good bargain! This lotion promises to soothe away rough dry skin and even out skin tone. Since I have been using it for a few months, I can say it works and you should try it. I also toasted my feet with this lotion and that works, too!

4 Thoughts to “Vaseline Products for Dry Skin and Crusty Feet”

    The healing qualities of Shea butter are due to the presence of several fatty acids and plant sterols, namely oleic, stearic, palmitic and linolenic acids. These oil-soluble components are nonsaponifiable, meaning they do not undergo saponification, or convert to soap, when introduced to an alkali. Shea butter possesses a significantly greater nonsaponifiable fraction than most other nut oils and fats, which lends the substance greater healing potential for the skin.^….^

  2. I love Vaseline. I use it all over my body and on my face. I know some people say it clogs pores, but it hasn’t caused any breakouts. I find that a very light coat of Vaseline on my face (after a thorough cleansing) helps my face stay soft and supple. 🙂
