AMW Reviews: Vaseline Healthy White SPF24 Triple Lightening

I am not a whitening lotion user, I love my skin color the way it is.  When Vaseline contacted me for a challenge, to use this Vaseline Healthy White SPF24 Triple Lightening Lotion on a 6-days Road Trip on the Northern Region.  (Note: Northern Region is way hotter compared to Manila), I want to tell them: "Are you guys crazy?".  With only SPF24, I thought it won't be enough and I'll probably go home too dark my family won't recognize me!  Prepare to be surprised like myself!  This is one product I've tested at the most extreme condition - Super hot and humid weather under direct sunlight (Laoag, Pagudpod and Vigan), then off to a cooler weather (Baguio).  Both weather condition isn't good to my very sensitive skin. 


Vaseline Healthy White SPF24 Triple Lightening says ---
With UVA protection, UVB protection, and vitamin B3.  It provides three layers of protection that help keep skin fair and even toned, in a light, non-sticky, daily moisturizer.  Be visibly lighter with 3x more sun protection.

AMW says ---
Pros
  • non-sticky in an instant!  Do not have to wait long for the stickiness to settle down
  • smells good
  • moisturizing enough 
  • has SPF24 for a whitening and moisturizing lotion!  I was told this is the only whitening lotion in the market with the highest SPF
  • has vitamin B3 which is good for your skin!
  • UVA and UVB protection 
  • no allergies or skin irritations  
  • does not produce white cast on photos
  • available in variable sizes
Cons
  • just like regular sunblock, have to re-apply at least every 4 hours which is not ideal for lazy people :)
Overall
I apply this lotion every after shower and re-apply every 4 hours (if I remembered).  There are a lot of times I forgot about the re-application so I was bidding goodbye to my original skin color.  

The product works so well under the hot and humid weather, it wasn't sticky at all and re-applying this after every 4 hours does not feel gross at all.  On the cooler weather, my skin usually flakes due to dryness and I haven't seen that happen as well!

On our last leg of the Road Trip in Baguio, I took a look at this shot taken by Hannah on the 6th day of our Road Trip and I was quite amazed my skin color did not change much!  See for yourself. 



Tips
  • wipe the mouth of your lotion after every usage to prevent product buildup

  • if you'll be exposed in the sun for long time, do not forget to re-apply after every 4 hours
  • purchase the smallest size to take it along with you for reapplication
  • purchase the biggest size (with pump) for easy application and its cheaper!
Will I repurchase?
Yes!

Stay happy!

  5. Me & mom have been Vaseline fans for years already! From their petroleum jelly, classic lotions, to the cucumber cooling variant and now the lightening sunblock. I agree with the fantastic smell, and the non-sticky feel not to mention that it's very affordable, too. =)

    Your skin looks great in photo & in person, Nikki! =)

  6. i have been recommended to use more and more vaseline products and i think this is another one to try too! you didn't look any darker even though you were on a trip outdoor in the harsh tropical sun. now that's a selling point for me.

    ps: you looked so happy in that pic!

  24. How long we should use this to see a visible whiten effect? i have been using this not more than 10 days. It smoothed my skin but not did whitening :(
    do i have to apply to for sometime to see the result?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Rush, i don't use it on my face, just body.

    Anne, Hmm..I'm not sure, I think maybe but in different look/packaging.

    Thomas, thanks

    Anonymous, as to ALL whitening products, it never works at once, I've been using it consistently up to this very moment, what I've realized is that I don't darken, I don't get white but I like it that my skin has a certain glow especially on photos :)

  26. can i use this even at night? as i'm using lotion before i sleep..

    ReplyDelete
  27. @Anonymous Yes it's ok, but I prefer more potent and moisturizing at night so I use the thicker formulation :)

    1. If you have very dry legs, I don't think this product would give you enough moisture but it will give you a bit of moisture but wouldn't last long. What you would expect from this product is the sun protection and the possible lightening (depending on how long you've been using this). Side effects? I can't tell, it depends on each individual. Some people may have side effects, most doesn't.

  29. hello. i just started using this product and i noticed that this lotion left orange-y stains on my shirt especially when i am wearing white. and i hate it. does that really happen?

    do you also encountered that?

    ReplyDelete

    1. You are probably acidic or something Or your shirt probably turns orange with the combination of the product and sweat, I strongly suggest you apply the product only on areas that gets exposed just to make sure not to stain your white shirt.
