Feeling a wee bit of deja vu? I know, I've already covered some lotions from Vaseline before. But these ones are (kinda) different, in that they are more moisturising and have some fancy science to back it up. Mmm, sciencey.
After exhaustive testing (sniffing first one lotion, then the other), I've determined these scents are pretty much exactly the same as those previous reviewed, bar one, so my previous fragrance critique still stands.
Dry Skin (yellow bottle) - Different to the previous yellow bottle I reviewed which was more medicinal, this has the lightest scent of the three, like oats and milk. Very gentle and inoffensive.
Aloe Fresh (green) - "This lotion is exactly like the name suggests, smelling very fresh and aloe-y."
Cocoa Glow (brown) - "Every body care brand seems to have a cocoa butter variant now, and honestly the reason I like them is the chocolate smell they share. This one is less chocolately, more nutty smelling than others I've tried, more like shea and coconut. Delicious."
So, if they smell the same, Michaela, how do you know there's a difference? Well, after another series of tiring product trials (rubbing one lotion on one leg, the other lotion of the other leg. Genius), this lot has emerged as thicker than its predecessors, and feels richer on the skin.
The stratys-3 multi-layer moisture on lower half of the bottles is a reference to the three layers of your skin. Vaseline has their definition of this here. I have no idea if this technology effectively moisturises all three layers - after all, I can only feel the top one. I do think all three of these lotions do a good job in keeping my skin smooth and moist as a loaf of banana bread. Like in the best possible way, not a doughy legs way.
I like what Vaseline has been doing with their brand recently - moving away from just being a no-frills, functional product, to something still competitively priced, but with more attractive branding and benefits.
