Vaseline Total Moisture: Feels Good, Does Good!

Getting fed-up of that itchy, dry winter skin? Spring is just around the corner, and with it one of your old favourite lotions is coming back with a new look and feel to get your skin ready for the beautiful months ahead.

Did you know that over half of Canadian women between the ages of 25-45 believe that they have to compromise between a lotion that feels good on their skin and one that really moisturizes deeply? With our new formula, you will never have to make that trade-off again…

I used my sister and her baby as guinea pigs to test out the classic Vaseline moisturizers.  My sister Michelle is right in the sweet spot at 30 years of age and baby Scott is almost 1 this spring.  This is the ‘next generation’ of Vaseline Total Moisture that is clean feeling, non greasy and gives you really soft skin. There are pure oat extract and Stratys-3® (Multi-layer moisture, our new formula infuses moisture deep down) and best of all, it absorbs quickly to feel good and do good for skin.

You can get the flip top and also the pump. I have been using the one with the pump everyday after a hot shower and I keep the flip top one in my bag!

Here are the three different kinds you can choose from – Oat (Dry Skin), Aloe Fresh and Cocoa Radiant

Which one do you think is Scott’s favorite?

My mom also put some on her leg to get rid of some dry skin. See the difference?  Wow!

Joseph Abboud (@JAApparel) Runway Show

Day ONE of New York Fashion Week and last night’s Joseph Abboud Runway Show could not have been a better kickoff point!

Back after a seven-year absence, all American designer Joseph Abboud showcased  his Fall/Winter 2012 Collection of perfectly tailored and sophisticated Menswear at The Marine & Aviation Terminal, Pier 57. With the spotlight on Bernardo Rojo, the creative brains behind the operation, the crowd couldn’t have been more pleased. The color scheme was generally neutral—mostly grey and beige tones with maroon occasionally.

Here’s a sneak preview of some of the outfits from the show and a video of the finale!
