Soft and Smooth, Finally

***WINNER PICKED 2/23 WITH RANDOM.ORG***

***CONGRATULATIONS, Ingrid (non-blogger)!!!***

her comment...
I have dry skin, especially in th winter months. My hands are always dry and I have to use lotion or cream several times a day. Thanks for this very nice giveaway.



Instead of inheriting my mother's dragon lady talons with their perfectly oval nail beds, I have small, boyish hands that look just like my dad's. Including cuticles that are so dry that even seasoned manicurists hang their heads in shame. The dry cuticles lead to hangnails that I can't resist picking at until they are scabby and sore. I've been trying to curb my nasty nail-biting habit so that the kids won't follow suit but nothing seems to help. I've tried all sorts of cuticle creams and wonder balms with no lasting results until I received a bottle of Vaseline Clinical Therapy lotion.



The Prescribe The Nation campaign started in Kodiak, Alaska, a rugged community with harsh environmental conditions that wreak havoc on skin. Kodiak citizens were given bottles of Vaseline Clinical Therapy lotion and told to "prescribe" them to friends and family members who they thought could use it. It was an easy sell because it's unscented and hypoallergenic, dries without leaving a greasy residue, and keeps skin moisturized for 24 hours.

I've been using Vaseline Clinical Therapy lotion for about a month now and I've actually had to trim my nails. Twice. Today, I even painted them. There is not a single dangling cuticle or bloody patch on my fingers. There are no dry patches on me, anywhere. Even my heels are totally soft. This stuff is good! And affordable. You can stockpile Vaseline Clinical Therapy lotion and still pay your heating bill this winter.





To enter and win a bottle of Vaseline Clinical Therapy lotion, plus a pampering gift basket including Godiva Chocolate, Kona Coffee, and Kiehl’s hair products, please comment on this post with your own dry skin stories.


Entries will be accepted through February 18th and I'll pick the winner using Random.org. US readers are eligible. Only one entry/comment per person, please.

  1. Actually, I am suffering from one right now! The inside of my left elbow has broken out in ugly red blotches! It's because of the cold and dryness. I am using a body butter to try to heal it, but BOY is it itchy! I would love to try this to see if it would work well!

  7. I'm impressed, I've been wondering how well that stuff would work.

    Just today I was thinking that taking a scalding hot shower probably isn't the best way to keep my skin moist, but DARN it's cold! I have alligator hands - would love to find something that would work on them!

  17. I have eczema on my thumb and routinely get outbreaks. First I get the familiar itch and before I know it my skin is scaly and really dry and usually the skin will split and whenever I wash my hands I see stars. If I try to wear a bandaid they keep on falling off. It's a mess.

I've been trying to pay extra close attention to them since I've been taking yoga and nothing shows off your feet better in the winter than taking a yoga class. Of course they still look ghastly! :) Thanks for the giveaway!

  43. My excessively dry skin is a genetic thing as my Mom and Grandmother and Aunt Mill all had it so Vaseline Dry skin lotion was always around our house and at 73 I still use it on a daily basis because without it I fear I would just dry up and blow away on an errant wind. When I first read about the Vaseline Clinical Therapy I poo pooed it thinking it was just more hype but boy was I wrong. The regular Vaseline Skin lotion was great but the Clinical Therapy is beyond great. I almost feel like I have normal skin now and after 73 years it is like Vaseline and I have won the battle.

  44. My worst dry skin story is not mine; it is my friend's. She recently moved to the midwest from Malaysia, and was completely unprepared for the winters here. The most shocking thing for her was not the cold, but the dry skin - her hands aren't used to this weather, and they crack and bleed.

  45. Really, winter is the worst for me. I have psoriasis and the lack of sunshine kills me. Not to mention the cold weather. I've dealt with it for...23 years now {egads it's been so long}. Tried so many lotions, shampoos, even tanning {UV helps}. It's pretty ridiculous. I'd be willing to try this lotion for sure! LOL

  143. I have eczema year-round. Yuck! My dermatologist recommended Vaseline, and I thought he meant the petroleum jelly. His nurse caught my expression, and said, "He means Vaseline lotion."

    Whew! We both laughed. I knew I'd look strange walking around with petroleum jelly smeared on my arms and legs.

    I love using Vaseline lotion, but haven't yet tried Clinical Therapy. I'd love to try it on this sad, dry skin.

    Looks like a great giveaway. Thanks!

  145. I live in Upstate New York, and during the winter months I tend to have "Lobster Claw" hands. They are red and cracked. So far nothing seems to work. I know if I win this, I'm sure I will forget about my hands being claws, and dive into the Godiva Chocolates. Thanks for the Giveaway.

  150. Indoor dry heat does a number on my skin in the cold winter. I have to use a cream to keep my skin from flaking. Summertime I can use a lotion.

  153. I have Sjogrens Syndrome an autoimmune condition that causes my skin to be extremely dry. The skin on my legs resembles alligator skin. My medical advisor told me just to keep using lotion but none so far has given much relief. I am very curious to see if this new kind will give me a better result.

  155. My dry skin is always worse in the winter. I think it's because of the long hot showers i enjoy to warm up.

  156. I always moisturize before bed, especially. All rough spots such as elbows, heels, etc. Moisturizing is so important especially in the winter.

It's gotten to the point that my hands are very chapped, red and raw and many lotions do not help. Vaseline Clinical Therapy Lotion would definitely be the cure-all for my obsessive cleanliness!! lol! Thank you for the contest!

  182. Well, after reading some of those blogs, I see we, (ladies!) have the same problem especially in the winter.
    I use Vaseline intensive care, but the dryness is still there,.......yes especially the legs!
    The red patch around the fold of the elbow of one of your blogger, could be a touch of eczema, if it is itching so much!

    Anyway, yes,yes,yes,......and again yes I want to entedr this contest especially there is also the chocolates to make you feel good inside!

  186. My feet are so dry, especially my heels, that they crack. One time I tried to get my mom to superglue it back together -- but she wouldn't!! She gave me a gift certificate for two pedicures instead!

  187. i didn't read any other comments but i'm sure all of them have the same problem as myself, especially in the winter. i get dry, flakey, peely skin. sometimes it's so bad that it cracks and bleeds. the bottom of my heels are the worst, like alligator skin and it gets so thick. i don't think anything will help it. i've tried several products in the past that claimed they help even the worst types of dry skin, all to no avail. ped egg was the last thing i tried. forget it, what a waste of money.then, to top off, on top of my dry, flakey, peely skin, i also have itchy skin as well. that doesn't help matters either, cause then i end up itching it raw. sometimes to the point of where it bleeds.
