So not a fan..

...of this:

It's a new range of body lotions by Vaseline called Sheer Infusion with Stratys-3 (yep I have no idea what that is either. It sounds like a type of cloud). The idea is the lotion sinks into the deeper layers of the skin, rather than sitting on the surface, to provide ultimate moisturisation.

So the pros are that the packaging is visually appealing in my bathroom and the texture of the lotion is light but yet enough to make your skin feel thoroughly moisturised without feeling sticky.

The huge con is that when I apply the Vitamin Burst lotion, which has a pleasant orangey scent in the bottle, the scent on my skin changes to what I can only describe as a sweaty gym kit which has been left around for a few days to fester. Not pleasant at all, especially when you have clean sheets on the bed and all you can smell is musty old sweaty damp that you find out is emanating from yourself! :(

Now, I don't know whether this is just a problem with me or perhaps it's because I wear fake tan but I've never had this problem with any other moisturiser. Rubbish.

Anyway, if you do fancy giving this a try (although I'm certainly not recommending it) then it's currently on offer in Sainos (Sainsburys) for £2.49 (save 50%).

However, I can recommend any of the moisturisers in the Vaseline Intensive Care range especially the one with cocoa butter.

I hope you're all ok and enjoying the snow. It seems the Midlands is the only place to have had about 2cm instead of the 10ft everywhere else has had! I do love how snow can make the most unattractive scene look beautifully picturesque. Here's a little photo from my work window:
