Review + Giveaway ~ Vaseline Clinical Strength


Vaseline's newest product, Clinical Therapy is a prescription-strength lotion that is available without a prescription.

It started in Kodiak; one of Alaska's many small towns, with a population of 6,000. Due to the location, Kodiak endures an extremely icy climate leaving many of its residents with dull, dry and cracking skin. This very reason is why Vaseline thought the demographic would be perfect to demonstrate the effectiveness of Clinical Therapy Lotion.

Vaseline turned to Petal Ruch, a voice coach and 50-year-old mother of four, who tried the product and felt it really worked, to start a word-of-mouth campaign for new Vaseline Clinical Therapy Lotion. If she liked it, she could then freely "prescribe" it to anyone else she thought needed it. Through word-of-mouth, her experience spread to more than 600 townspeople—including 39 cousins, a Russian music group, a knife maker, police detective, owners of fishing vessels, and many others-- whom also discovered that Clinical Therapy works.

Clinical Therapy Lotion provides 60% more moisture than a prescription lotion, and is available without a prescription. It comes in two varieties ~ lightly fragranced and unfragranced.

I was sent the unfragranced version to try out. It is a white lotion and has a lightweight feel to it. It quickly absorbs into the skin, making your skin feel nice and smooth. I get severely dry skin in the winter. My legs and back itch non-stop. My hands get so dry that my skin literally peels off. I always have little cuts along my knuckles, etc. I've been using the new Vaseline clinical therapy for almost a week now and I have no new cuts! This is a first for January in Michigan!

My husband gets even worse dry hands during winter. I "prescribed" him a bottle of the clinical therapy lotion and his hands are nicely healing up. He is really funny about lotion as well, normally complains about whatever kind I buy. He has only found one lotion he has ever liked, it was a gift from a co-worker. I believe you have to special order, so we have never been able to get a second bottle. The fact that he has used this more then once with no complaints says something, trust me!

Thanks to Vaseline and Family Review Network, I get to Prescribe 4 of my lucky readers a bottle of Vaseline Clinical Therapy!

To enter, tell me who you would prescribe this bottle to if you won, don't worry it can be yourself :)

My favorite video is of the 29 year old Mom with the 2 year old. It's just sweet and very real life.

I chose the same video. Kori is adorable and it was more fun watching the video no. 3. Not like a regular commercial. Thank you!

I will prescribe this for my whole family. Chicago winters can be brutal on your skin and this could really help with the dryness and chapped feeling.

angie said...
