3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent gift product let down by poor presentation, 3 Nov 2013
This review is from: Vaseline Pink Crest Lip Therapy Tin (Personal Care)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
At first sight this product looks like a really nice gift for someone who, like myself, suffers from chapped lips in wintertime. It's also a great opportunity to try out the Aloe Vera and Cocoa Butter variants on the original blue-tin Vaseline. The packaging - it looks like an oversize Vaseline tin - is cute, but the problem is that it raises expectations too high. Not, perhaps, in the person buying it. The product illustration makes it clear what you're getting.

No, it's the recipient who's going to have to be tactful and avoid showing his or her disappointment. The contents are just too small for the packaging and, to make it worse, the three regular-sized tins "float" on a layer of transparent plastic that makes it all too obvious how much air and how little product this big pink tin actually contains.

My suggestion is this - by all means buy this product, but doll it up a bit. Take out the plastic innards, replace them with a brightly coloured washcloth, or a silk scarf, and put the little tins on top of it. That'll lift the whole thing nicely, and it's what the manufacturers should have done in the first place.
