I received two body moisturiser samples from my Marie Claire subscription this month. With the colder weather my skin is getting dry so I'm keen to try them out. I thought it'll be fun to compare them and share the result with CCM readers.
In the red corner is Vaseline cocoa butter deep conditioning body lotion.
Product claim: The lotion penetrates skin to where dryness starts, to smooth away roughness and ignite skin's natural glow at the source.
And in the blue corner is Aveeno daily moisturising lotion.
Product claim: Unlike ordinary lotions, contains natural oatmeal blended with rich emmoillents to moisturise your skin for a full 24 hours. The unique oatmeal formula ... [provides] temporary relief of the scaling and chapping associated with dry skin.
I will apply the lotions after my shower every day, Vaseline to my left calf and Aveeno to my right. I will use them until the sample packs run out (they are both 10ml so they should finish at the same time). I will also apply good old soebolene cream to my thighs as a control.
First review will be tonight when I use them for the first time.
