This giveaway is now closed. Thanks for stopping by. The winner is Martha H. Congratulations!
I wash my hands. Alot. The fact that I’m a mom AND a nurse (a neonatal intensive care nurse at that) results in frequent hand-washing that renders my hands red, raw, and sore. Now that winter is upon us (as temperate as our Southern California winters can be) I am finding that my hands are completely moisture-depleted.
Vaseline, the creators of, well, Vaseline (hehe) have developed an innovative, prescription-strength lotion called Clinical Therapy, that is revolutionizing skin care. Unlike other lotions, Clinical Therapy works to heal dry skin and relieve itching. It provides 60% more moisture than prescription lotions which is amazing to me considering it does not require a prescription. Clinical Therapy is hypoallergenic which is great for my very sensitive, break-out prone skin. I first started using it after I had worked two 12-hour shifts back to back. After practically washing the skin off of my hands, I came home as always do, with dry, sore hands. I figured that since this is a “prescription-strength” lotion, it would leave a “prescription-strength” layer of grease on my hands. Fortunately, I was still able to check my email without my hands slipping off the keyboard! In all seriousness, as soon as I rubbed it in, I felt some relief from the soreness and my hands over the next few days became softer. Now, I have to admit that while I like using this lotion, I have to keep using it because of how aggressively I am required to wash my hands at work. Alcohol-based antibacterial gels and soaps are not the nicest products to use on skin which means I need a pretty impressive lotion (like this one) to make any real difference. I usually have a few days off in between my shifts and I’ve found that using Clinical Therapy heals my hands, even in that short amount of time.
Clinical Therapy is available in an unfragranced and lightly fragranced varieties (I really like the fragranced version) and retails for approximately $7.00. You can obtain a coupon for $1.00 off directly on the site.

I’m going to leave you with the story behind Vaseline Clinical Therapy including one of my favorite videos from the site.
It started in Kodiak; one of Alaska’s many small towns, with a population of 6,000. Due to the location, Kodiak endures an extremely icy climate leaving many of its residents with dull, dry and cracking skin. This very reason is why Vaseline thought the demographic would be perfect to demonstrate the effectiveness of Clinical Therapy Lotion.
Vaseline turned to Petal Ruch, a voice coach and 50-year-old mother of four, who tried the product and felt it really worked, to start a word-of-mouth campaign for new Vaseline Clinical Therapy Lotion. If she liked it, she could then freely “prescribe” it to anyone else she thought needed it. Through word-of-mouth, her experience spread to more than 600 townspeopleâ€”including 39 cousins, a Russian music group, a knife maker, police detective, owners of fishing vessels, and many others– whom also discovered that Clinical Therapy works.
