Vaseline Healthy White Perfect 10 Whitening & Anti-Aging Lotion

When I first received the Vaseline Healthy White Perfect 10 Whitening & Anti-Aging Lotion product sample, I then wondered if the lotion was meant for the face, body or both as it wasn’t explicitly mentioned anywhere.

Vaseline is known for its body care products so I assume this is from the body care range as well but with its 10 in 1 skin benefits, you’d probably be tempted to pat a dollop of it on your face too. That’s what I did.

Vaseline Healthy White Perfect 10 Whitening & Anti-Aging Lotion

This product contains AHA, Vitamin B3 & Pro-Retinol and addresses 10 skin concerns as follows –

1. Visible Skin Lightening
2. Even-Tone Restoration
3. UVA & UVB Protection
4. Dark Spot Reduction
5. Radiance Boost
6. Skin Feels Firms & Tight
7. Visibly Reduces Fine Lines
8. Skin Renewal
9. Intense Moisturization
10. Deep Nourishment (within epidermis layer)

A brief look at the properties of the 3 main ingredients –
a) AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) helps reduce wrinkles and signs of aging.
b) Vitamin B3 has anti-inflammatory properties and protects the skin from UV damage.
c) Pro-Retinol is a powerful anti-oxidant that can help soften skin, boost collagen production and increases elasticity of skin.

Sounds amazing isn’t it?

I have tried the product for about 2 weeks now (applied once daily, sometimes twice) and here’s my verdict.

Day 1
I applied the lotion over my neck, collar bone area, upper arms, elbows, back of hand and face. It felt a bit warm on the skin within 2 minutes of application but the feeling went away after 15 minutes or so. There was mild redness on neck and collar bone area and skin felt a little itchy.

Day 2
I noticed the dark coloured sun spots on my left high cheek had faded very slightly. Plus, my entire face had a pinkish, rosy glow. My husband said I looked as though I just came back from a run.

Day 3
The skin around my chin and neck felt rough with enlarged pores and bumps. Skin felt warm to the touch.

Day 4-6
The skin on both cheeks had peeled very slightly, more like surface dead skin being sloughed off.

Day 7-9
No more peeling of skin. Skin felt supple, soft and smooth.

Day 10-12
Sun spots on left high cheek were further reduced in shade. Sun spots on right high cheek were slightly fading too, so were a few dark spots on my left hand.

Day 13-14
Face looked more even-toned. Even though the pigmentation did not fully disappear, they had faded quite significantly.

Pros:
Helps achieve even toned skin
Makes pigmentation less visible
Makes skin feel smooth and soft
Gives skin a rosy, healthy glow
Skin doesn’t feel dry the next day even if sleeping in air-conditioned room
Non-greasy formula (no need to wash hands after in contact with it)
Nice, light fragrance
Easily absorbed by skin
Doesn’t form white streaks when applied on skin
Affordable price

Cons:
Doesn’t work on fine lines
Doesn’t work on cellulite or stretch marks
Doesn’t seem to firm up skin
Causes mild redness and itchiness (but tolerable)

I have doubts whether this product does work on reducing wrinkles, fine lines and firming up skin as I don’t see any change in those areas on my skin after 2 weeks of application. Overall, I still think this is quite a good moisturizer for daily use and with longer usage, one is likely to achieve even-toned skin and less visible sun spots or pigmentation. Best of all, it doesn’t burn a hole in our pockets.

I rate this product a 7/10.

    The Vaseline healthy white perfect 10 lotion is not suitable for my skin as the skin turns red and itches badly that I have to see a skin specialist at National skin centre. I was told to stop using it as the skin develops blisters.

  • Chloe says:

    The same goes for me. I developed red and itchy rashes all over where I applied the lotion after 2-3 hours of application. I washed it off immediately, took a 180mg telfast and applied anti-inflammatory cream to curb it. This lotion is NOT suitable for sensitive/dry skin. Use it at your own risk.

    I like it when skin care products doesn’t burn a hole in the pocket but of course, results are much more important. Even when a product is cheap if you don’t get the results you want, for me it’s still burning the pocket. A waste. I’ve tried vaseline before. It’s great in moisturizing the skin but other than that I haven’t seen any magical results after finishing up the tube.
