Heal Dry Skin with New Vaseline Deep Restore Lotion (with Petroleum Jelly) + The Leaf Test

April 27, 2016
Today, we are doing a simple botanical experiment with the new Vaseline Petroleum Jelly.
It was actually our friends from Unilever who prepared this special experiment to show me (and to share with you guys) how Vaseline helps heal dry skin and restore moisture.

Last April 8 to 10, Vaseline took the ultimate test by mounting a live billboard in C5. Real leaves were used and half of them were covered with Vaseline jelly while the other half had non. After 3 days, the difference was visible. If you want to see the billboard – check out
Just like what we had in our special #bloggermail.
I can see that the leaves with Vaseline Petroleum Jelly remained vibrant and moisturized – while the other are dried out. Upon seeing this, I wanted to lather Vaseline Petroleum Jelly all over my body!

 The wonder jelly that was discovered by New York  -based Chemist Robert A. Cheesebrough that heal cuts, burns, rashes, chapped skin, bruises and more. A staple in every household it was labeled Petroleum Jelly. 
I have experienced the same drying when I was in cold countries when I felt that my skin and even my hands are drying and flaking – and almost I feel I had cold burns. Surprisingly, I am now experiencing the same here in Manila with the painful heat and warm weather. 
Everyday, skin is exposed to different factors. Imagine how hot showers, air conditioned rooms, pollution and the weather can do to our skin. 
I do use Petroleum Jelly from time to time in areas like elbows and feet. But sometimes I get to lazy to apply them because (let’s admit), we busy ourselves with more important tasks like answering emails or stalking in Facebook 😀  Add the fact that Petroleum Jelly takes a while to be absorb and can get messy when you are in a hurry. 
Thankfully, there’s Vaseline to address this issue and help Filipinas replenish their skin’s moisture by infusing what is known as a wonder ingredient into the new Vaseline Body Lotion – now with micro-droplets of Vaseline Jelly!

1. For targeted areas like elbows, heels and knees: heal dry skin with Vaseline Petroleum Jelly, the original wonder jelly. 
2. For everyday healing: heal dry skin within epidermis with the new Vaseline Deep Restore Lotion, now with micro-droplets of Vaseline petroleum jelly.
3. For healing and fairness: heal dry skin and get 4x fairer skin instantly with Vaseline Instant Fair Lotion (faster whitening compared to other brands).
