Vaseline Intensive care advanced repair review - Influenster VoxBox

Hello beauty lovers,

A while ago Influenster sent me a bottle of Vaseline intensive care advanced repair cream for testing purposes. Here is what I received in my Vaseline VoxBox.

There was a 5-day hydration test card in the box to see how this Vaseline cream can hydrate my skin in 5 days. I first performed the "Before" test by following the instructions on the card. My skin test came out "Dry Skin" as expected. Below is the patch test result.

I applied the cream once a day after shower for 5 days in a row. I did not feel the need to reapply during the day since the hydration was enough for the full 24-hours. 

At first the cream felt really sticky on my skin for 5-6 hours after the application. But then, I got used to the feeling and it did not bother me that much. I found out that it's best to apply the cream right before sleep, so that this sticky feeling won't be a problem.

Here is how my skin condition is improved after just 5 days. You can see that my skin test came out "Normal skin". 

This product retails for $3.99 and you can find it at any drugstore or grocery store (like Walgreens, Shop Rite, CVS, etc.) or online ( You can find more information on this product by visiting the official page here.

For me, the only downside of this product is that it is formulated with Parabens which are considered to be one of the possible causes of female breast cancer based on the experimental analysis done on various breast cancer tissues. Because of this reason, I did not apply the cream on my underarms and chest area. I felt safer this way since most of the research showed that these areas are where Paraben is absorbed. But this is just what I do. You might feel safe with Paraben and it may not be a concern for you since FDA did not make an official announcement yet.

I would be more than happy if Vaseline can reformulate this product using different antibacterials rather than Parabens and be willing to pay more (maybe up to $6.99) for the same amount. I really like how it hydrates my dry skin. I especially need such potent products for the upcoming dry winter months.
