Vaseline Clinical Therapy Review & Giveaway

I have been pretty fortunate to have soft and smooth hands for most of my life. (Does that mean I don't work hard enough?) However, my knees and my elbows are another story completely. In fact, they are so bad that they snag my clothing a lot of times. I can forget about sleeping in silk sleep pants during the winter because my knees literally hurt from all the snagging.

That is all changing though. Now that I've tried Vaseline Clinical Therapy lotion, I'm starting to see and a feel a huge difference. This stuff really works! Even my 9 year old, who complains about itchy, dry skin all winter long has enjoyed using it and her complaining now focuses on other things instead.

Clinical Therapy lotion is a new, prescription-strength product from Vaseline. I think the story how this lotion made it to the shelves is so interesting.

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.

View her story here.

Clinical Therapy Lotion provides 60% more moisture than a prescription lotion, and is available without a prescription. The best part is that it's not greasy, watered down or too thick and is available lightly fragranced and unfragranced making Clinical Therapy great for the entire family.

Vaseline has also released some great videos on YouTube from some of the other residents in Kodiak who tried the lotion with fantastic results. I really related to this one because her skin snags on her clothes too.

Vaseline has offered to send a sample of 2 bottles (fragranced or unfragranced - you choose) to one of my readers. If you'd like to prescribe yourself or someone you know with this amazing lotion, leave me a comment on this post. You can receive one extra entry each for doing any or all of the following: subscribe to my blog, follow my blog on blogger, tweet this giveaway on twitter, or stumble any of my posts. Just make sure you come back here and let me know which of the above you've done. If you already subrscribe or follow, just mention that for a second entry.

I'll announce the winner Monday, January 12th.

My fingers, for reason - just the tips, are so 'rugged' that they snag on everything too. It's so bad that I don't even want to touch my 15 month old's delicate skin for fear my own is too rough. :(

I would LOVE to try this lotion.

I go through a big bottle of lotion a week just to keep my skin from bursting open from dryness! And Vaseline is still the best lotion out there!

Thanks for the opportunity to win this great lotion. I have eczema, as do my daughter and grand daughter (darned old genes) and welcome a new product to try. Just found your blog through "Rocks in my dryer" and subscribed to you, today! Yay!

Kat 7:01 AM  

I love this product, and highly recommend. Hope to win.

My favorite lotion for years (Pacquin) has been discontinued and I'm on my last jar. I live in Colorado and really need a good quality lotion. I would love to try this one.

I think you absolutely made the right choice on the jacket and I experience the same thing you do with buying things for myself. I never hesitate for my kids, or even for my husband, but I'm always hesitant for myself. I know my husband doesn't want me to be that way, and I can see yours doesn't either. :)

Veronica 8:10 AM  

With the winter months, my hands are always extremely dry so I would love to give these a try. Thanks for a great giveaway :)

My hands get so dry in the winter and with a new baby on the way I'm sure I will be washing my hands even more frequently, which doesn't help!

This is the first year my knuckles are so chapped that they occasionally bleed! Must have something to do with mommyhood and thinking other things are more important to spend money on.

Enjoy your coat. A good warm one is worth nearly any price.

I freely admit to consistently using improper grammar in the following areas:

2. I have a tendency to end sentences with a pronoun. (I really do. I can't help it.)
3. I always seem to use passive voice in my sentences. (See?)

I've been trying to break this habit, unsuccessfully, for years, so now I just accept that as my writing style, and since I'm not writing for grades anymore, I embrace it. (Again, see?)
