I hate winter...

There's so many things I can say that I dislike about winter, the cold, the snow, the slush...I could go on and on, but I think the worst thing about winter is my dry skin. It seems every winter it doesn't fail, my feet crack, my face gets itchy and dry and no matter how many products I try to use to curb this, it still comes back. Even my husband has started to complain about my dry cracking heels (to which I told him well if I could go get a pedicure every week this wouldn't happen).

My skin is changing, thanks to Vaseline Clinical Therapy Lotion. I've seen the commercials, and you always have to wonder just because something has the word 'clinical' in it, if it really does work as well as they say it does. With my dry itchy skin, I'm willing to try anything at this point.

The other night I got a really good back and foot massage with this stuff from my hubby, (I know Lucky me!) my excuse was that I had to really find out if this stuff worked, and he would be best to rub it in to my skin well. I went to bed that night with the lotion still on my dry cracked feet (rubbed in really well I might add) and stuck some socks on for the night. In the morning my feet were much better than the night before. I've continued to do this for the next few nights and I can't tell you how much softer my feet feel each day. I've even started to use this on my face as well, and the dry patches are gone!

Clinical Therapy Lotion provides 60% more moisture than a prescription lotion but you can buy this OTC without a prescription. You can get your lotion in both lightly fragranced and unfragranced as well, it's not greasy or watered down either.

The Vaseline Clinical Therapy Lotion was recently brought out to the Kodiak and tested by residents who suffer from very dry skin. You can check out the video HERE or by going to the website to read more stories and find a $1 off coupon at prescribethenation.com
