Honest reviews


No more than a 4!

Boy oh Boy, the packaging changes and it makes you think you are going to experience something really good as soon as you make the purchase. All these attributes found in these types of products. Some will hydrate you, some with the famous and rather bland Aloe Vera, some with vitamin E and yes, I do want to believe a ground breaking product will finally arrive to my doorstep (thanks to prime shipping, which I do like) but in the end I think is the same s..t but in a different bottle, who knows really when it comes to advertisement we all are suckers! When hasn’t a commercial for fast foods fails to entice? The new this or that and you finally go, even after you promised yourself and others, that the last time was it. Then you get it and you go same s…t different day. I admit that sometimes when you purchase something you hit a gold mine. But that just never seems to happen all that often. Vaseline Aloe Fresh Hydrating Body Lotion, with Aloe and Cucumber 24.5oz (Pack of 3). Wow! That title alone is something to behold. Well, I bought it, I used it and like in the army it kind of felt like SOS. 4 Stars because after all the greenish color suggest fresh cucumbers, wouldn’t you say?

Cool & Smooth

I have long been an avid user of Vaseline products and have been pleased with the results. This product was no exception. As someone who is sensitive to certain smells (for example, I can’t stand the smell of talcum powder and some lotions have that odor*), Vaseline has been known to use nonintrusive, gently pleasant aromas to their products. For example, there is Vaseline with Shea Butter and Vaseline with Lavendar which are olfactory treats. This one can take its place with other high caliber Vaseline products and it will leave your skin soft and smooth. It has a very minimal aroma, but a pleasant one all the same. You get a slight suggestion of cucumber, which works all around as cucumbers themselves have very little aroma. What smell they do have is pleasant, just like this lotion.*odor – unpleasant smellaroma – pleasant smell

**Fantastic Body Lotion**

I recently started using Vaseline Aloe Fresh Hydrating Body Lotion after receiving a free sample, and I definitely will be buying this product. It is absolutely wonderful on dry skin. I don’t use a body lotion everyday and my skin gets very dry. This lotion is absorbed quickly and left my skin soft and supple without any oily feeling — great for grandma! The cucumber fragrance is mild, making this lotion appropriate for men and women.

Economical and works just great

Sure, I have fancy lotions and creams but I also use drugstore stuff too. I think this Vaseline lotion with the aloe fresh scent is just great. I love the ease of a pump lotion, that way I don’t get too lazy to use it. This is the time of year I need to use lotion every time I get out of the shower, and this is working just great. It’s not sticky when it dries on my skin, and keeps me from looking “ashy”. The scent is pleasant, sort of cucumber-y and not too fruity. It’s not such a strong scent that I keep smelling it later, which is fine with me. This large size should keep my skin moisturized for at least the winter and maybe even longer. So if you have a big family go for the 3 pack. I like that the bottle is tall and not too bulky, so it doesn’t take up a lot of counter space, just vertical space.

fresh scent and clean-feeling

I work in food service and my hands take some abuse, between wearing gloves and being in dishwater, so I was excited to try this lotion. I love the clean scent, it is not overpoweringly flowery or perfume-y like some more expensive stuff from certain stores. It goes on light, not greasy or watery. I keep it in my kitchen so I can put it on as soon as I get home from work and as frequently as needed. It has been a great relief for winterized, chapped hands

Beatrice Gueydan, LA


Fresh smell, great moisturizing lotion…after a shower or for everyday.Works well on mild exzema and wonderful on sensitive skin. Great to use after you come in from the sun!

Sheryl Woodbury, VT

my favorite go-to brand

I looove the vaseline brand and this Aloe fresh lotion does not disappoint. It is light and lightly fragrant, and does not feel sticky and is quickly absorbed for soft skin.This last me for months as a little goes a long way. highly recommend for a light day cream and for my often dry hands! I keep a bottle at work.

Powerful (but not unpleasant) scent; effects dissipate quickly

I’ve been using Gold Bond lotion for years, but when this came in the mail, I started using the Vaseline instead. The first thing I noticed is the VERY strong scent. It’s a nice, clean, fresh scent, but it’s really quite strong–too strong for my liking. Then I noticed that the scent goes away pretty quickly… as do the effects of the lotion.Compared to Gold Bond lotion, this Vaseline Aloe Fresh is inferior. The only thing it has going for it is its price, but I’d rather pay twice as much, use half as much, have it last twice as long, and not have to put up with that overpowering scent.

My second favorite Total Moisture scents from Vaseline–Aloe Fresh

I have tried all three of the Vaseline Total Moisture lotions–this one, the Aloe Fresh, the Cocoa Radiant and the Pure Oat Extract. Of the three, this is my 2nd favorite one. The smell of aloe vera and cucumber is nice but a little too strong for me. I think people who enjoy aloe or cucumber scents in general will like this scent. This lotion soaks into my dry skin fast and isn’t sticky at all. I even use this as a hand lotion because of its non greasy feel. I work with Jr. High kids so I don’t have time to wait around for my hands to dry like with some other lotions. In the winter this lotion is saving my life. I hate the winter dryness and it hates me, and my hands especially. I recommend the line of lotions highly. My favorite of the three is still the Cocoa Radiant because of the cocoa butter smell.

Absorbs Fast!

Vaseline Body Lotion Aloe Fresh is a nice lotion that comes on thick but absorbs extremely fast into the skin. If you want a heavier moisturizer you will need to apply this lotion a second time so that it lasts much longer. The Aloe smell is crisp and refreshing, but light enough so that it’s not overbearing. I love how light this lotion is and that makes it much better to where in humid places like South Miami where I am from.I love the feel of this Vaseline Aloe Fresh lotion because it’s not oily or greasy and you can adjust the moisture yourself to fit your desired needs. I love this lotion because it provides my skin with the protection I need and want.

Big huge bottle of lotion

I was surprised at how big this bottle of lotion is. You get a lot for your money here, 20.3 ounces, which is a bit more than 2.5 cups, with a nice pump dispenser on top. This is for people who want a lot of bang for the buck.I applied this to both arms, and it felt a bit sticky at first but as I rubbed it on, it quickly spread out and dispersed into my skin.I’m on the fence about the scent, which is a pleasant and fresh cucmber scent, and yet a bit artificial at the same time.When it dried down I was left with a faint stickiness as a reminder of it, although it was so slight I feel most people probably wouldn’t notice it. The scent didn’t linger either thankfully.I have recently decided not to buy any products with petrolatum in them, which this contains. While I always liked petrolatum as a moisturizer in the past, we have recent studies that are of concern.Cancer causing chemicals found in crude oil and its by-products, known as Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs), may contaminate petrolatum-based products. A study conducted at Columbia University found that the breast tissue of women with breast cancer was 2.6 times more likely to have increased amounts of PAHs attached to their DNA than the breast tissue of women without breast cancer. While no studies have ever shown a direct link between petrolatum and cancer, the European Union put numerous grades of Petrolatum on a list of dangerous substances. It was also the European Union that banned Bisphenol-A (BPA) from all plastics in 2011. The US meanwhile has only banned BPA from baby bottles in early 2012.Of course the main way petrolatum enters the body is most likely in lip products, i.e. lipstick.Petrolatum is number six on the list of ingredients, with aloe being number seven.Water and glycerin are the first two ingredients, which I approve of.So that is my main concern with this product aside from not finding it as pleasant and effective as some other moisturizing lotions I have been using. But if you want a big bottle of reasonably priced lotion and don’t mind the petrolatum this might be a good choice.

Pretty good but no SPF

I’ll get straight to the point with lotions as there are so many out there that under perform.The scent is nice, refreshing and smells flower-like. It’s none greasy and moisturizes well. It’s also very light when applied and absorbs quickly. It’s perfect for daily use but not for extremely dry skin. My skin tends to get more dry during the dry winter months and i like using an intensive care lotion by Lubriderm.I’m removing one star because I think all daily moisturizers should come with a little sun protection. This does not.

Velma Cambridge, MA

Favorite Lotion

This has been my go-to lotion for a while. Short of going with the high end (B&BW) stuff, this is my standard and my husband loves it too. It moisturizes well isn’t greasy or runny like some other brands. The aloe fresh scent is very nice and relaxing.

Minnie Arlington, VT

Fresh Scent, Average Performance

This generous bottle contains a fairly thick lotion that smells of cucumber. I liked the scent, it was fresh and clean but a tad to strong for my tastes. The lotion was nice and creamy and applied with ease. My expectations were high since it also contains soothing aloe. Unfortunately, it did not leave my skin feeling nice and smooth. It felt almost powdery like it was coated with something.There is almost a dizzying array of Vaseline lotions these days. The most successful for me was the Cocoa Radiant which provided the soothing moisture Vaseline was once known for. If you are not wedded to this brand, I also suggest Renew by Melaleuca, available online. It is non-greasy and formulated with tea tree oil.

One of Vaselines Better Lotions

I have very dry chapped hands in the winter months caused from washing my hands frequently. I tried usingVaseline Total Moisture, Body Lotion, Pure Oat Extract, Packaging May Vary, 20.3 Fl Oz. . (Pack of 3)but it did nothing to help my dry skin. I had used Total Moisture lotion in the past and was very disappointed in the results of the Pure Oat Extract version.This lotion, Aloe Fresh, is much better. It is very similar to the old formula Total Moisture from Vaseline. It has a light fresh scent that is not overpowering or too feminine. It absorbs completely into the skin and doesn’t leave a greasy film. I apply to my hands after washing and to other body parts after showers and the scaliness and dry winter skin has completely disappeared. I am very pleased with the results.

Hello Aloe!

I like aloe products. I am not a huge fan of moisturizers, body lotions, etc. What I really like about this product is that the aloe is present in enough volume to make a difference. Usually aloe products have a trace amount of aloe, making them aloe “in name only.”There are several other nice ingredients in Aloe Fresh Vaseline Body Lotion, including cucumber extract, sunflower oil, and soybean oil.The full ingredient list:Water, Glycerin, Stearic Acid, Glycol Stearate, Isopropyl Palmitate, Petrolatum, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Extract, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil or Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Sterol, Sodium Stearoyl-2-lactylate, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E Acetate), Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A Palmitate), Panthenol (Provitamin B5), Sodium Acrylate/Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Dimethicone, Glyceryl Stearate, Cetyl Alcohol, Lecithin, Mineral Water, Sodium Pca, Potassium Lactate, Lactic Acid, Collagen Amino Acids, Urea, Fragrance, Triethanolamine, Dmdm Hydantoin, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, Disodium Edta, Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891).Aloe Fresh goes on easy. When I put it on, it is not sticky, nor does it feel like I am blocking up my pores. It is not overly oily either, so my hands don’t feel greasy. It is not overly thick which is nice. I want a moisturizer to moisten but not feel like a layer of something built up on my skin.It has a light scent, and after a few minutes what I notice lingering most is the scent of aloe, which can be a somewhat “heavy, plant” smell. This is coupled with a faint scent of the cucumber and the oils. It is not a wonderful fragrance that makes you want to apply this almost as cologne. But neither is it offensive or annoying. It’s just a pleasant scent.As far as performance, it works in nicely to my skin, and freshens dryness on my hands, elbows, etc.This is a very nice product – perhaps not incredible – but very nice.

Great moisturizer

I’ve used other Vaseline moisturizers and have had good luck, so I thought I would try this. I also tried the Cocoa Butter formula which, admittedly did seem to moisturize better, but I prefer this one overall because of the fresh scent. During the colder weather, I have trouble with my legs drying out and chapping and these Vaseline products do seem to help considerably. I’ve triedEucerin Professional Repair Extremely Dry Skin Lotion, 6.8 Ounceat a much higher price point and actually believe these perform better.

Great For Winter Dry Skin

This is a great lotion. The scent really is fresh, but not overpowering. And my skin feels soft after just one application. If you have winter dry skin, give this one a try.

Amy Ogilvie, MN

My favorite.

It’s winter and dry itch is a (starts with a “b”)I always moisturize right after getting out of the shower.If I don’t then I’ll start scratching myself bloody.Now the other dilemma..finding the right lotion.I’ve tried other lotions.Ones that have the barely there feeling you might as well have put nothing on instead.Then you have the others that are so greasy you feel like you’re going to slide right out of your clothes.I found Vaseline Aloe a few years ago and I’ve been thrilled with it ever since.I saw it on the vine and jumped for joy that I’d get a free bottle.The perfect lotion to keep the winter itch away.And it smells great.Recommended.

Love the Scent, Love that it Works

I have to admit, I am not a hand lotion kind of guy. However, I have noticed that my elbows had gotten embarrassingly rough during this Minnesota winter. A big part of my aversion to lotions is the greasy feeling I get when applying it. I was very happy that this product did not seem greasy, which is kind of amazing for a “vaseline” product.The smell is pretty mild and pleasant. The scent lingers throughout the day, but is not annoying. But what I am happiest about is that in days it made a huge difference in my elbows, and within a week the roughness was nearly gone. I can’t imagine myself using this product daily, but at 20+ ounces, I expect my rough elbow issue to be taken care of for a long time to come.

Vaseline Body Lotion, Aloe Fresh

Here in Phoenix we cope with year-round dry weather as best we can. If one is fair skinned it becomes an important component of enjoying one’s day to avoid scratching all day long due to dry skin. That’s me. After trying a continual stream of hand and body lotions I am thinking this product here might be a keeper. I like this lotion: it is creamy, mild and is not grainy like some. It applies smoothly and covers well. The aloe aroma is not strong so it does not linger for too long. Time will tell but I am staying scratch-free in our long dry winter, so for now I highly recommend Vaseline Body Lotion.

Claire Pesotum, IL

Aloe Ha! Oy!!

This lotion absorbs easily and doesn’t leave any kind of residue. I’m really not crazy about the scent. I don’t mind the smell of aloe, but this particular fragrance, while not UNPLEASANT, is not something I really care for.

Johanna Monroe, TN

My favorite lotion!

I am a fan of Vaseline lotion, and have been for many years. I love the fact that it soaks in and doesn’t leave your skin greasy. For years I had searched for the perfect lotion, and I found it with Vaseline. The nice thing is that they are consistent with all of their lotion products. This lotion is no exception! The smell is light, and dissipates from your skin quickly. It has the light scent of Aloe Vera, so it smells fresh when you apply it. This lotion soaks right in and leaves no greasy feel, it just adds moisture to your skin, so that it feels soft. As usual, Vaseline lives up to its quality promise!

Katy Greenville, MO

Light, lightly scented and quick absorbing.

This is a very pleasant update and surprise from Vaseline. The new formulation absorbs quickly, isn’t sticky or tacky yet seems to keep a decent amount of moisture in your skin. It is not the thick type of lotion that Vaseline came out with in the 80s and 90s but more reminiscent of the thinner old yellow Vaseline bottled lotions but keeps your skin softer and retains more moisture. The light scent is also a very pleasant change from the increased use of perfumes in other brands.Overall, highly recommended if you’re looking for a lightly scented, lightweight yet moisturizing lotion.This is my new favourite lotion.

Randi Graff, MO

Very Good Lotion – Highly Recommended!

This Vaseline Body Lotion works very well to relieve discomfort from patches of dry skin caused by the seasonal changes. We use a lot of lotion in the winter and Vaseline tends to make good products, so gave this one a try. The scent is also very pleasing.This is decent body lotion and it really does help protect dry skin.Highly Recommended!CFH

Lana Bolton, NC

Just ignore the titanium dioxide and get it, at least once

The aloe – cucumber smell is heavenly. Only zombies don’t like it. I love it. The high glycerin and aloe content is very healthy and medicinal for skin. It’s good for burns & sunburns – no more need be said.Sure it has titanium dioxide, the whitening chemical that’s not to be digested but present in some candies anyway. It only means do not ingest this product and it won’t hurt you.This is a rare skin product with its ability to hypnotize the user. The scent and feel on the skin make the brain feel lighter. That alone makes it worthwhile.

Malinda Rossville, TN

Vaseline + Aloe is a Winning Combination

The Vaseline Body Lotion, Aloe Fresh is a refreshing lotion that combines the moisture of vaseline and the cooling sensation of aloe.Notes — Has a nice melon/cucumber type of fragrance – it is not a strong scent- Absorbed into my skin quickly and did not leave an oily residue.- Leaved my skin feeling good, but not great – I have used lotions that seem to be more effective – but they always seem to cost more- I like the aloe addition since it can help relieve a sunburn – not a traditional *aloe* type of lotion (which are clear/greenish in color) but more of a milky creamy type of consistency.- Did not cause a rash or any kind of irritation or side effects (and I do have sensitive skin).Final Verdict – A nice lotion for daily use, but it brings the added bonus that it can sooth skin if you happen to stay in the sun a little too long.4 1/2 Stars

Terra Hester, LA

I’ll have mine with Aloe Please

USe it all the time when shaving as a base coat. The aloe in this product doesn’t cause any contraindications and is by far one of the best products on the market.

Aloe Fresh by Vaseline Does the Job for Dry Skin

As someone who has dealt with dry skin and the itching sensation that comes with it I found Vaseline’s Aloe Fresh body lotion to be a welcome relief.For guys it’s not too heavy of a fragrance that you won’t mind putting it on, and you can almost immediately tell the difference in the way it feels on your skin.I’ve been using it about 2 weeks now, and I can definitely tell the difference in the way my skin looks and how the dryness is definitely not as intense.There are many products that Vaseline has that are great for both sexes, but I believe that Aloe Fresh has become my favorite of the body lotion family.
