Hello girls, how are you doing? Delhi is colder day by day and I don’t feel like going out to malls and markets, but we have to shop things that are necessary. One such thing is a foot cream to get rid of dry cracked feet. Some days ago I went to nearby market to buy my regular foot cream and the SA suggested me to buy Vaseline moisture therapy heel cream. On her recommendation I bought this. I was expecting this cream to be good and relieve me from dry and cracked feet. Despite of wearing socks my feet still remain super dry and as a result I get cracked heels. I obviously don’t like it. The SA told me that with regular use this cream can repair my heels in 7 days and that is what convinced me to buy this and I expected fast results. lets know more by reading Vaseline Moisture Therapy Heel Cream Review.
Vaseline products are known for their quality and gentle effect on skin. I have been an ardent user of Vaseline body lotions and petroleum jelly I even use body lotion and jelly on my daughter’s skin as I consider Vaseline products to be safe for children, so it was obvious for me to expect this cream to work on my feet. I have been using this cream from past 10 days regularly. I apply this cream twice a day after bath and before going to bed. I hate flaky and dry heels; they irritate me most so I continuously hunt for products that can help make my feet soft and smooth. I also do pedicures regularly at home as I don’t find parlor tools hygienic enough to be used. So, apart from using this cream daily I also used it after my pedicure. Read on to know how it fared on me.

My experience with Vaseline Moisture Therapy Heel Cream
To start with I do have dry feet but I don’t have severely cracked heels but there are some minor cracks due to winters. Because I have dry feet I always need creams that keep my feet moisturised and my search led to this cream. This cream claims to repair heels in seven days flat and I am using this from past 10 days. Here comes the sad part I am not at all impressed by this cream. It does not do what it claims my feet are in the same condition, in which they used to be ten days ago. There is no visible softness and to tell you, the cracks in my heels are as it is. Being from a brand like Vaseline it is such a dud. It is not at all suitable for people like me especially in winters. Though its ingredients list mentions things like glycerine, which is known for its moisturising properties and paraffin wax which is known to heal cracked feet but it still does not work at least not for me.
The cream comes in a squeezable white coloured plastic tube and it comes out easily on pressing the tube. The cream is thick in texture and is having a mild scent. It spreads easily on the skin and is not greasy. The cream comes in different sizes so that you can try the smaller size first and buy bigger one if you like it. I am glad I bought small size. It comes at a reasonable price and won’t burn a hole in your pocket. There isn’t any mention of parabens in the ingredient list which I liked the most about this cream rather it has some chemicals in it. It is not a good option for winters but I think in summers it may work as it is not greasy and lightweight in texture.
To sum up I can say that this cream does not do what it claims so it is a total skip for me and not to be used in winters.
