I'm Alexis, I'm a 26 year old sahm of 2. I really enjoy spending time with my family, cooking and enjoying each others company, especially during the winter, when it's so yucky outside. I have very dry sensitive skin, as does my oldest daughter, and we both have a very hard time finding a lotion that moisturizes without irritating our skin. Most fragrances really don't work for us, we tend to break out very badly. I would love to find a lotion that works for both of us, and I'm really looking forward to trying out this Vaseline product.

hello my name is Kelli. I am a SAHM to 3 wonderful boys on the Olympic Peninsula in WA. 

I am always challanged to keep my skin soft in the winter.  It feels like a constant battle of lotions and body washes and all kinds of tricks....I look forward to trying something new.

Hello my name is Angela. I'm a SAHM of two kids in a small town in Arkansas. I enjoy spending time with my kids. I like to play with my kids in the snow when we get it or sit inside and watch it snow and drink hot chocolate.

My hands and feet are always dry and crack in the winter. I use a lot of lotion during the winter. I'm looking forward to trying something new for my hands and feet.

Hi, I'm Jae. I'm 34 and a sahm of 3. In the winter, in an effort to keep from getting sick, I step up on hand washing and using sanitizers. Unfortunately, because of this, my hands dry out and crack big time. Sometimes, I develop a rash looking dry patch that hurts really bad. I'm always looking for a lotion that will relieve it without stinging or giving me a headache. Certain scents give me headaches, and I never know which ones will do it. Sometimes it's super hard to find a product that meets my requirements. But once I find something I can use that actually helps, I have no problems with dry skin all winter.

 I'm Alexandra and I am a home daycare provider. I enjoy everything about winter (except the cold and ice lol) and love sipping on hot cocoa and spending time with my family.

I'm 30 years old and have PCOS so skin care can be really difficulty for me. I often deal with dry skin patches on various skin areas. I am looking for a product that can help me with that.

Hello! My name is Jay. I'm a married mother of two from the Northeast. My area is known for long, cold winters. I take care of myself through the winter by working out, making sure I get enough sleep, eating healthy, and using a good skincare regimine. My skin tends to become dry and itchy beginning in fall with allergy season. It is tough to find products that keep my skin moisturized without feeling greasy or oily. I'm also picky about scent. I'm excited to try this new lotion.

Hi I'm Angie, I'm 29 & live in east nc. A mom to two little girls, Cherie and Alani. We spend a lot of time on the beach, which wreaks havoc on my skin. I've been looking for a lotion that won't make me itchy, but will help with all the dryness that the wind, sand and salt water cause. Also, I work in an office with a lot of older people, so they keep the heat turned up really high, which is even worse on me. Looking forward to trying it out!

Hi, I am Connie. I am the mother to 2 amazing and slightly spoiled kids. We stay healthy in the winter months by staying active. We enjoy sledding and iceskating, and enjoy the seasonal get togethers and holiday parties.
I love winter but it dries my skin so badly. I really need to find a good lotion to help me make it through the season.
