      I felt like the alligator lady with scales every morning when I got up. I would have to peel off layers of cracked skin . Dermatologist prescribed this Vanicream lite lotion for my eyes and it felt like heaven on my eyes, so much relief from redness and cracking. Such a simple cure from something I was going through for months…….VERY HAPPY 🤗

    5 out of 5 Very sensitive to everything

    I have finally found something I can use all over my body, I could never use anything on my face . I would use products on body and if they got to close to my face it would break out and get all red and puffy.
    This is an awesome product. Please don’t ever change ingredients . I have tried all kinds of products from the top of the shelves to the bottom of the shelves and even organic and natural. Stuff would work for a while and then i would start breaking out . Some products were just to heavy for my skin . The products that have lanolin in them once i applied them i could almost taste them it was horrible . I use all your products – soap -shampoo-conditioner-gel-hairspray- lip sunscreen – ointment-I have not tried the cleanser yet but plan on it .I tell everyone that I know about your products especially the ones with problems . :):)

    I use this mostly on my face, but also on my body. Coming from someone with sensitive combo skin, this product doesn’t break out my skin, make it oily or cause any irritation. It’s the perfect moisturizer for sensitive skin.

    5 out of 5 Great for face to avoid clogged pores

    I love the regular vanicream, but after a string of acne-like reactions due to clogged pores, my dermatologist recommended to switch to lite for the face. It’s worked like a charm and I continue using vanicream on the rest of my body.

    Love this product! Have used it, and most of the other products as well, for over five years. Do wish it was available in a large bottle to refill other pump bottles though. I have found the cleanser in large bottles.

Thank you for such a cost effective and simple way to manage my skins needs ..

    I love this lotion.My only suggestion is I have rosacea and your cleansers are oil free which I love.The only product your company doesn’t make is a oil free moisturizer.If you ever do you will have the market in skin care.Just a suggestion but I know oil free Vanicream moisturizer would be a big success!!! Thanks Vanicream!!!

      Received this in an email which discussed dry skin and ingredients to avoid.

      “Petrolatum
      This is petroleum jelly, which may contain traces of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) if it’s not highly refined by a special process. In addition, petrolatum seals skin and creates an impenetrable barrier. Without being able to “breathe,” skin can succumb to fungal and bacterial infections, not to mention clogged pores. Ironically, petrolatum also seals out moisture from the air, making it less effective as a moisturizer and skin softener.”

      Recently purchased Vanicream Lite Lotion. About to use it for the first time. Please comment on the above statement. Thank you.

      Rose – Great question!
      At PSI we take great pride in our facility and ingredient selection standards; this is what separates us from many other traditional cosmetic companies. We are an FDA inspected cGMP facility, and we adhere to higher quality standards by conducting careful research during the selection of our ingredients and performing rigorous in-house testing of both raw ingredients such as petrolatum as well as the finished product, Vanicream™ Lite Lotion.
      Our Super White Petrolatum USP is a superior grade that meets the highest standards of the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) as well as complying with FDA standards. It is refined, purified, filtered, tested, and passes the most stringent test to detect and extract harmful polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs).
      The statement in your question also is specific to petrolatum in creating a “barrier without being able to breathe”- while this may be true for 100% petrolatum our finished product Vanicream™ Lite Lotion is an oil in water emulsion lotion that has only a small fraction of petrolatum and with other ingredients uniquely forms a protective barrier that can “breathe” while it moisturizes the skin.
      In addition to our Quality Control Lab, we have a Microbiology Lab that does in-house testing of every lot of Vanicream™ Lite Lotion and related microbial efficacy testing. This formulation does not allow fungus or bacteria to thrive nor has this ever been reported or associated with any other Vanicream™ product.
      This unique formulation is third party scientifically tested to be “non-comedogenic”, meaning it does not clog pores; we have the study results to prove it.
      Vanicream™ Lite Lotion has been used and recommended by thousands of Dermatologists for well over 20 years to help patients with dry skin who want or need to avoid common chemical irritants such as dyes, lanolin, fragrance, masking fragrance, parabens, formaldehyde and gluten.

      Shirley, I have what seem’s like relentless acne with equally relentless dryness (like that really flaky persistent throughout the day/have to carry a compact mirror with me to check on it dry skin). I did a trial run since Vanicream conveniently offers their lotion in a trial/travel size. I originally was going to get just a few trial sizes of each, but didn’t want to wait around for the next shipment if I really liked one. So I ended up getting 1 -2oz bottle of each along with a few trial sizes to take on the go. I found that while the cream was great it was, like you said, a litle heavy for me. Occasionally I did feel as though I broke out due to reapplicaton and mostly likely dead skin being held down by the cream and clogging my pores. I switched to the lite lotion and it’s perfect! I still experience some dryness but have made some adjustments in my acne routine (only washing at night with benzoyl peroxide, and just toner in morning plus my topical med’s after). This switch has definitely enhanced the benefits of using vanicream. But the lite lotion may be the way to go. Sorry for the novel – but I feel the more detail with this stuff helps!

      Either the cream or the lotion will work, it really comes down to skin type and personal preference. The cream will be heavier and the lotion lighter. This article might help: https://www.psico.com/sensitive-skin-care/articles/skin-lotion-cream-or-ointment-how-to-choose-the-best-moisturizer/

    5 out of 5 LIFE SAVER!!!!

    I have extremely sensitive skin, and anything I put on my skin burns and turns red and puffy. I had tried a bunch of the dermatologist recommended products ( cera ve, cetaphil, aveno, etc) but they still all burned. I finally re called my dermatologist and asked if there was anything else I could use for my skin, and they suggested vani cream. This product really helped the redness in my skin, and hydrated all of the dry patches. I would TOTALLY recommend this stuff!! It is amazing!! It doesn’t burn, or leave a greasy residue!

    5 out of 5 Great Face Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin!

    I’ve always had that weird combination skin – oily, with dry eczema spots. I tried Vanicream Lite Lotion a few years ago and it is hands-down the best face moisturizer I’ve used. It moisturizes without being too heavy or greasy, and it works as a great base before applying foundation/make-up. I use it every single morning and recommend it to anyone with sensitive skin.

    I normally don’t rate products, but Vanicream has been unlike anything else. For months on months I’d been looking for a face moisturizer that would get my dry skin under control. However, my skin is highly sensitive and at the time was so raw that everything I tried burned. Just when I thought of giving up on it, I found Vanicream and it gave results within days!! It’s the only thing that doesn’t burn me and I can honestly say I love it! If you’re looking for a cure to dry skin, Vanicream is the way to go 🙂
