Hello ladies! So I have an HG eye liner, an HG lip balm, kajal and mascara, but somehow, I have never found a moisturizer that I thought was irreplaceable. So I keep juggling between random Nivea, Avon and Vaseline moisturizers. I picked up yet another new one the other day and it is the Vaseline Healthy White Lightening Visible Fairness Lotion so that’s what I’ll be reviewing today. :)
Rs 75 for 100 ml
My Take on Vaseline Healthy White Lightening Visible Fairness Lotion:
The lotion comes in a typical flat bottle packaging that most Vaseline moisturizers come in. It is a plastic bottle with a flip open cap. I don’t like the fact that the product accumulates at the mouth of the bottle, it is really messy.
It has a very light weight texture and feels quite smooth on the skin; it also blends in seamlessly and with minimal effort. The lotion has a pink tint to it and a pleasant fragrance (again characteristic of Vaseline lotions).
Now, the instant fairness claim is pretty tall and honestly I didn’t expect it to be true. So why did I buy this lotion? I don’t know if any of you girls have noticed (or maybe it’s just me who has this problem), but after applying moisturizer, my skin always looks darker. I don’t know whether it’s because my skin is hydrated and hence a bit greasy, but it definitely looks a shade darker. So that’s why the ‘instant fairness’ claim appealed to me. And in that aspect, this lotion doesn’t disappoint. My skin looks moisturized yet not darker. I think it may be because of the pink tint of the lotion.
Why I like this Body Lotion?:
- Light texture
- Blends very easily into the skin
- Lightens skin very slightly on application (probably because it is tinted)
- Reasonable price
- Moisturizes skin, especially good for the summer months when a light moisturizer is required
- Pleasant fragrance
Why I don’t like this Body Lotion?:
- Does not lighten skin
- Says it has ‘triple sunscreens’ but doesn’t mention exact sun protection
- Will not be moisturizing enough for very dry skin or in winters
- Product tends to accumulate at the mouth of the bottle
MABH Rating: 2.5/5
If you’re looking for a product that gives you instant fairness, this is NOT it. The instant fairness claim is true only to a tiny extent because of the tint in the moisturizer, but it disappears very quickly. That said, this lotion still has many positives and it can serve as a pocket-friendly everyday moisturizer if that is what you are looking for.
Will I repurchase?:
Yes I may, unless I find something better. However I am yet to discover my HG moisturizer! :/
Hope you girls liked this review!
