Product Review - Vaseline Creme Brulee Limited Edition
The one purchase that I was excited by (saddo) on my way home was the new limited edition Vaseline, in a Creme Brulee flavour. I'd tried to persuade Sean to take me to Selfridges when it first came out so that I could get my hands on it, but funnily enough he wasnt particularly interested in the launch, boys hey! So when I spotted it in Superdrug today I grabbed it straight away and forked over £2.99 for it. Quite frankly I think the price is bloody daylight robbery!
Sadly I'm kind of disappointed by it. I was expecting a beautiful sweet smell with the same strength as the Cocoa Butter variety of Vaseline, but this isnt really up to the same mark. There is a very slight difference in smell from the original Vaseline, but nothing significant enough to warrant a new variety in my opinion, let alone one that claims to be limited edition. The packaging is quite cute with the graphic of the cracked sugar across the lid.
Quality wise, it's no different from any other of the Vaseline products. It's handy for when you get that horrible niggling feeling of sticky or dry lips. Great for chapped or dry lips, a staple of the beauty world, an old classic that you cant really go wrong with having in your make up bag.
My favourite lip balm/jelly/moisturiser is the Dermalogica Lip Complex which was in last months Glossybox. I put it on every night before I go to sleep without fail. I'm probably going to run out in the next couple of days, waaaah!
What do you think of the new Vaseline?
