Vaseline Clinical Therapy Lotion Review and Giveaway

I am sure that you have all heard of the Prescribe the Nation Campaign from Vaseline. I know that I have seen the commercials and loved them.

Basically, it started in Kodiak; one of Alaska's many small towns, with a population of 6,000. Due to the location, Kodiak endures an extremely icy climate leaving many of its residents with dull, dry and cracking skin. This very reason is why Vaseline thought the demographic would be perfect to demonstrate the effectiveness of Clinical Therapy Lotion.

Vaseline turned to Petal Ruch, a voice coach and 50-year-old mother of four, who tried the product and felt it really worked, to start a word-of-mouth campaign for new Vaseline Clinical Therapy Lotion. If she liked it, she could then freely "prescribe" it to anyone else she thought needed it. Through word-of-mouth, her experience spread to more than 600 townspeople—including 39 cousins, a Russian music group, a knife maker, police detective, owners of fishing vessels, and many others-- whom also discovered that Clinical Therapy works.

View her story here

What is Clinical Therapy you ask?

It is a prescription-strength lotion that is available without a prescription and it provides 60% more moisture than a prescription lotion. The best part is that it's not greasy, watered down or too thick and is available lightly fragranced and unfragranced making Clinical Therapy great for the entire family.

I was lucky enough to receive a few bottles of Vaseline Clinical Therapy courtesy of Family Review Network. I just started to try it yesterday. It is awesome! I got the lightly fragranced one and was a little concerned because I don't normally like fragrances but I love this one. It really is a light, fresh barely noticeable scent. It made my skin so nice and soft!

I am so excited to "prescribe" this to one of my co-workers. She has really dry skin and is always looking for a great lotion to help with this and I know this is going to work out great for her!

Do you want to give it a try? I am going to be giving a set of two bottles (one for you and one so for you to "prescribe" to someone else) to a lucky winner!
