The Vaseline Aloe Fresh Moisturizing Daily Body Gel is a great moisturizer. I bought this body gel after receiving a slight sun burn to ease the burning and hopefully avoid peeling. I used the lotion a few times for a couple of days after the sun exposer and have had great success, and experienced no peeling and the redness from the burn and heat are now gone. It added moisture to my skin an help to keep my skin from extended damage. It didn't leave a sticky or oily feeling but dried leaving me feeling dry and refreshed. It also has a nice scent and even though it is a little more costly than the store brands I would suggest using this product. It is not only good for damaged skin or sunburns but also as a daily moisturizer.  It contains aloe and other natural ingredients and it's from a name you know and trust Vaseline. If you are looking for a moisturizer or looking to switch from one you have I would recommend you give this one a shot.

I don't think a gel consistency has any business on someones skin. It should really just stick to hair if even that. I do not ever see anyone with this product and from my own personal experience with it, I will never buy it again.

Scent
The aloe scent is just fine and not overwhelming what so ever. The cocoa butter scent for this product may be more preferable to some.

Absorption
I thought that a thin lotion was bad, but a gel is probably worse. It is so oily like and almost sticky. It takes forever to rub into your skin. Even after you do it just stays on you for what seems like forever. It will get on everything you touch or rub against for the next 30 minutes to an hour. I would not recommend wearing clothing and going out soon after applying it. It's really more of a mess and a hassle.

Effectiveness
Vaseline gel did not really do much for my skin. I thought that because of the almost oil like texture it gives that it would work for my skin but it did not. I didn't use it often because it was a pain in the butt to leave on my skin. I can only say that it may work with dry areas that you plan on keeping covered overnight. For example, your feet with socks or hands with fluffy gloves but not for your whole body or large areas. My skin didn't get any smoother or any less dry over time or even after use. Just oily.

Great to use after a day in the sun

By 

from Texas

Comments about Vaseline Aloe Fresh Moisturizing Daily Body Gel:

Vaseline Aloe Fresh Moisturizing Daily Body Gel is great for your skin after a day in the sun. It has a gel like consistency and goes on the skin smoothly. It absorbs into the skin right away and doesn't leave a residue. I also love that it smells so fresh. I especially like to use this product after my skin has a sun burn. It's very soothing and helps moisturize my skin to prevent peeling. This product feels nice and cool when applied to my warm sun burned skin. I don't use this product as an every day moisturizer. I only use it when I have been in the sun. I would recommend this to anyone too keep in their house, especially during the summer months. It's perfect for the days your skin gets too much sun.

Scent
I love that this product has a very light, clean and fresh scent.

Absorption
Absorbs into the skin right away and doesn't leave a residue.

Effectiveness
Works well at soothing and moisturizing skin after a day in the sun.

Vaseline Aloe Gel is great for lightweight moisturizing

By 

from Pennsylvania

Comments about Vaseline Aloe Fresh Moisturizing Daily Body Gel:

I love Vaseline but this is not one of my favorite products. I love to try new things and when I saw Vaseline Aloe Fresh Moisturizing Daily Body Gel I had to give it a try. It can have it's purposes but I like a more heavy duty moisturizer. It is relatively inexpensive.

Scent
The smell of this is neither good or bad. It has a light scent.

Absorption
This absorbs ok but not like a lotion or cream. It kind of sits and dries on top of the skin also which I can feel.

Effectiveness
This would be a great moisturizing option for you if you have fairly hydrated skin to begin with. It does have moisturizing and soothing qualities but is not moisturizing enough for dry to extremely dry skin. There is nothing wrong with this product but it is not for me. It is very gentle and doesn't seem to irritate my boy's sensitive skin. The whole family can use it. This would be a good product to use after being in the sun. Heavy lotions and creams trap heat in the skin making skin that has been exposed to sun too long feel worse.

Baby soft skin!

By 

from Ohio

Comments about Vaseline Aloe Fresh Moisturizing Daily Body Gel:

My overall rating for the "Vaseline Aloe Fresh Moisturizing Daily Body Gel" is great but not perfect. It did make my skin really soft, and it smelled wonderful. The one thing I did not enjoy about this product is how sticky and greasy I felt aferwards. I have always had really dry skin on my knees and elbows so I was hoping to find something I enjoyed using that could get rid of the itchy dry flakes without OVER moisturizing my skin. This did exactly that.

Scent
The scent smells really nice and really clean. It also seems to linger on your skin for a while so you wont have to worry about it fading right away.

Absorption
It didn't seem to absorb into my skin very well. Which I find to be pretty odd considering my skin is SUPER dry. This aloe gel left a greasy and sticky feel on my skin and I almost couldn't stand it. I would suggest using alot less.

Effectiveness
Overall this seems to be a good product if you want a nice oily moisturizer. I use it now in the shower for shaving and adding a little extra moisturizer to my body wash. I didn't care for using it as a lotion substitute.

Unfortunately this is just not that great

By 

from Oakwood Vlg., OH

Comments about Vaseline Aloe Fresh Moisturizing Daily Body Gel:

I had very high hopes for this product when I came across it in the drug store and bought it. It's a great idea for a moisturizer being that it's indeed a gel product. But it's formula is a bit wanting and not that great. It didn't really moisturize my skin that well, if only for a few minutes tops, then my skin felt tight, and dry again.

Scent
The scent is light and quite pleasant. Although it's an artificial smell of aloe, and not an organic smell of aloe, it is still nicely scented.

Absorption
Vaseline Aloe Fresh Moisturizing Daily Body Gel has an overall very moist feel to it when I first apply it to my skin. It does absorb quickly, but then it makes my skin feel sticky and not at all smooth.

Effectiveness
I can't say that Vaseline Aloe Fresh Moisturizing Daily Body Gel improved my skin in any way. Nor did it heal or make any difference as far as my skin's dryness. It did not help relieve chaffed or ashy places like my knees , hands or elbows.

This product is perfect for after a day in the sun!

By 

from lakeland, florida

Comments about Vaseline Aloe Fresh Moisturizing Daily Body Gel:

I purchased this product after a particularly long day in the sun. I do not normally burn, but on this day I had been working outside and I forgot to refresh my sunscreen. I ended up with a burn and it was a little painful. I ran to the store and found this aloe gel. I did not like the others I had looked at because they smelled terrible. Vaseline's Aloe Fresh Moisturizing Daily Body Gel absorbs quickly into my skin and the aloe refreshes my skin while cooling it after a long day in the heat and sun. It is not specifically made for this purpose, but I think it definitely works better than any other after sun aloe gel on the market. If you are looking for something that absorbs well, smells good, and does not cost a lot of money, this is the aloe gel for you. It is one that I definitely recommend.

Absorption
I have never used an aloe gel that absorbs as well as this one. It sinks into my skin quickly without leaving a residue on the surface.

NOT intended for dry skin

By 

from USA

Comments about Vaseline Aloe Fresh Moisturizing Daily Body Gel:

I have been a big Vaseline fan for as long as I can remember because their products are usually so great at moisturizing but this Vaseline Aloe Fresh Moisturizing Daily Body Gel is definitely not intended for dry skin. It is a very light gel, with a wonderful scent (the best part of this product), it goes on very easily and is quite refreshing but it does not moisturize at all. After putting it on, my skin feels like it needs lotion to take away the feeling of itchiness due to dry skin within five minutes of applying this Vaseline gel. This product would be great at cooling your skin off after a day in the sun, and possibly at helping relieve sunburn, but it definitely does not do enough to actually moisturize a sun exposed or sunburn skin.

Scent
The scent is absolutely amazing, and that is my favorite part about this product.

Absorption
Because it is a gel, it is super light and easy to apply. Your skin will absorb it right away. But then you may feel that you need to apply more very shortly after.

Effectiveness
Not great at moisturizing dry skin, would be okay to use after a day in the sun to help cool your skin off, but it does not moisturize enough.

Too sticky!

By 

from Dunnellon, FL

Comments about Vaseline Aloe Fresh Moisturizing Daily Body Gel:

I thought that this had seemed like a cool product and that it could help me with moisturizing without having that after lotion feeling. Well this was way worse and I would have preferred the lotion feeling. This stuff in my opinion was sticky and felt like it was melting off of me when I sweat and felt sticky to the touch also which made me feel gross. The scent was alright but it just didn't absorb very well at all and it just was not what I had expected. There is something about Vaseline products that just always feel kind of greasy to me and I end up just wanted to wash it all off. It does however kind of keep your body cooler than lotion would and the scent does last for quite a long time. It is a decent price though but I do prefer to spend more for something that is better. This is not a product that I would personally recommend...it was disappointing to say the least!

Refreshing daily moisturizer

By 

from Maple Shade, NJ

Comments about Vaseline Aloe Fresh Moisturizing Daily Body Gel:

Vaseline aloe fresh moisturizing daily body Gel moisturizers your skin and also prevents the look of dry and rough skin. Vaseline moisturizer gives on smooth because it is clear and also absorbs quickly into skin giving it a soft appearance and feel. This moisturizer will take your skin from try to moisture in just one application. It can be used on sensitive skin skin and also can be used on extremely dry skin because it has very natural ingredients and also simple ingredients. The aloe in the moisturizer is very good for your skin and also has a very fresh and natural scent. This product is from vaseline brand-name which is very well-known and that you can trust to make quality products. Vaseline moisturizer after using for only a couple days you will see noticeably different appearance on your skin. The only negative to this product is the fact that it is a little bit greasy and can feel greasy on your hands after applying. It can also come off onto yours clothes so you have to be careful to let it absorb first before putting on clothes

I don't recommend this

By 

from Keeseville, NY

Comments about Vaseline Aloe Fresh Moisturizing Daily Body Gel:

The product is sticky and feels gross to me when applied. Leaves a residue of some kind on my skin. I wouldn't recommend this product for people with darker skin complections. I am mixed and this product doesn't work well. The filmy residue it has and the stickiness it leaves makes it uncomfortable to wear.
