I will be reviewing a recently-launched product by Vaseline which claims to visibly lighten tanned skin after just one usage. The new healthy white “lightening” lotion is endorsed by Shraddha Kapoor and I think everyone has seen the ad by now 🙂 I have wheatish complexion and my arms/body get very tanned during the harsh summers of Kolkata (It’s hot), for many weeks now it is raining and although very frustrating, it is actually refreshing 😀 Okay, let’s move on to see if the product works or not :p
In today’s time, you are under constant scrutiny, right from head to toe. While you invest immense time in getting a flawless face, don’t miss out on giving your body skin the utmost attention it needs. With the onset of summers, a lot of people shy away from stepping out in the sun due to the fear of tanning and skin darkening. Shy no more, as Vaseline equips you with the confidence of the new Vaseline Healthy White Lightening Lotion that comes with a breakthrough skin lightening technology, which makes your skin 4 times* fairer instantly.

My Experience with Vaseline Healthy White Lightening Visible Fairness Lotion:
The lotion is pink in color and consistency of this lotion is more like a pink colored creamy foundation rather than a lotion. That being said, it is the lightest lotion I have used (I don’t really use lotion and the main reason is the greasiness Vaseline, etc., give to my already oily body skin). It absorbs the minute I apply and blend, but like I said, you have to blend it in like a body foundation not like how lotions are blended into skin, but it is not the least bit greasy (I am someone who finds even Parachute summer fresh/clean and clear moisturizer greasy :p), and no it does not give any coverage to the skin, but yes a slight tint which disappears within a moment :/
It makes my skin smooth and supple and not greasy, but I don’t think it will work for dry-skinned people. People with normal skin can use it when the weather is really hot and you don’t want to sweat. Oily skin girls will love it because it feels like you have put nothing! 😀 oh did I mention, it smells so floral and feminine? If you have used Pond’s Dream flower talc/deo, it smells exactly the same, but two times more intense, but it fades completely after 10 minutes, so no nausea/headache from strong smell 🙂 About the lightening claims, (I don’t get what lightening is supposed to mean, you can’t and should not change your natural skin tone. So to me, it means de-tanning skin tanned/darkened by the sun. Well, my arms are pretty tanned and after using for about 12 days, it has not really lightened the skin, but I do not care about that as long as the lotion is working as a lotion for me 🙂
Pros of Vaseline Healthy White Lightening Visible Fairness Lotion:
- Non greasy, non oily, lovely texture.
- It has a very subtle/slight tint to it which gives the illusion of lighter skin, but just for some minutes.
- Floral, feminine smell.
- Makes skin soft, supple without being greasy for oily skin people.
Cons of Vaseline Healthy White Lightening Visible Fairness Lotion:
- Huge list of chemicals/weird stuff, I prefer using products with less chemicals.
- Need to blend like a foundation, rather than a lotion.
- People will find it is not apt for winters, but I can use it because anyway I do not use lotions in winters also (yes, oily skin problems!)
- Lightening claims didn’t work for me, but it might work better on people who are always under the sun, I don’t know :p
Would I Recommend/Repurchase Vaseline Healthy White Lightening Visible Fairness Lotion?
Yes, if you dislike greasy lotions, grab it, there are not many lotions like this and I will get it (in case you want to buy,you might want to do it now because they are giving away free Dove bathing bars :p).
