I got mine from Food Bazaar mainly because I was travelling to England and I knew the sudden shock my skin would have to undergo going from the hot humid Chennai weather to the dry winters of England :yikes:. So, I went prepared and I made it a point to moisturise without waiting for my skin to beg for moisture. Even if its not winter, if we are exposed to extreme air conditioning, whether its hot or cool, our skin would cry for moisture. The warmers would literally suck the moisture up and so does office air conditioning. So, everyday moisture for the skin is a must.
Thankfully, I don’t have to be so choosy as I have normal skin for the body unlike my oily face, and I can pick up body lotions according to the weather or even the brand I want to 😀 Even if I am lazy to moisturise everyday post shower, I do try to moisturise before bed at least four times a week :yawn: I do get very lazy with moisturising and so I am doing this post as a reminder for the upcoming winters for North India and the imaginary winter here in Chennai, so prep and do moisturise and if you haven’t zeroed in on any lotion for winters, here is your answer!
About the Lotion:
Now, its very hard to find a thick lotion which doesn’t leave a trace of oil on the surface for the sake of moisturizing. I have had very bad experiences with Lotus and Aroma Therapy, where the lotions are thick and oily and not really moisturising as the grease just comes off on the clothes or bed linen. So, I really love this lotion for being thick and not oily per se and for doing a fantastic job of layering the skin up with a layer which is not thick and greasy, but very well moisturising and perfect for winters.
It smells mildly soapy and not at all overpowering or lingering. Its not one of those lotions where someone holds your arms and all the grease from the body lotion comes off on the palms, because you were protecting yourself from the harsh winter with a thick lotion. This lotion is soft, creamy, intensive and moisturising and I need very little and it would stay on for 9 hours without the need for going back for it again. So, stock it up and slather it on for winters if you still haven’t got one. You can find it here. Its actually in the others section and not the usual moisture section. I love this site and there is so much to offer, Vaseline also has cream tubs in UK and some more petroleum jelly and hand creams which they should soon release for India too, specially sheer infusion ones.
Use sparingly, dry skin will love this. The pump bottle is a safer bet and definitely a bottle the entire family could use for this winter. Honestly, even the 400 ml will be hard to finish, but since it has two years of shelf life, you can use it for two winters :silly: Proves to be a fantastic foot, elbow, and knee cream too. This cream does sink into the skin and is not just superficially creamy. It is hypoallergenic as well, cherry on the cake for dry, sensitive, itchy skin.Vaseline comes with its own honesty as a trustworthy brand for years on end now. I can trust Vaseline blindly anyday. This is not at all ideal if you stay in humidity or sweat a lot. Use a lighter lotion from Vaseline in that case. They should come with travel packs as well :idk:
