I am a huge fan of Vaseline Intensive Care Aloe Fresh lotion. I like it because one pump is enough to cover the lower half of my leg, it rubs in quickly and easily, it is the best lotion I've found yet to use right after I shave (to relieve razor burn and irritation), and, most importantly, it dries very quickly compared to other lotions so it isn't too sticky to put on pants when I don't have time to walk around in underwear for a half hour.
At the moment I am on a tight budget and my current bottle of Vaseline Aloe is going to run out pretty soon. Vaseline Aloe is a cheap lotion, $3.49 for 10 oz at Target. However, I have found another aloe lotion that is even cheaper: Perfect Purity. I came across this lotion at the, um... store where everything is under a dollar. I'm pretty wary of buying any sort of beauty products there, even if I'm itching to try them. They also have these makeup lines called Colormates, L.A. Colors, and Aziza, that look really interesting. But, I'm pretty sure this store doesn't have the stellar return policies that other mass-market stores have on beauty products.
So I'm wondering, based on the ingredients below, can you tell me if the Perfect Purity will perform as well as my beloved Vaseline? Or should I just bite the bullet and save my dollars for a big bottle of the Vaseline Aloe fresh?
To me, the ingredients lists of these two products look really different. Vaseline's has “micro-droplets” of vaseline jelly, while Perfect Purity seems to have more actual aloe...I think.
I will leave it up to the Brains. I had to type out these ingredients so please excuse any errors.
Yes, I typed them out.
