Review: Vaseline Cocoa Butter Vitalising Gel Body Oil

This product is one of my absolute favourites. I honestly don’t know what I’d without this beauty. I’m a big lover of body oils, and this gets a gold medal every time.

I’ve got really dry skin and it’s so difficult to find a product that moisturises properly, and lasts all day. When I was younger my mum used to say that I had rhino skin, because I’d turn a horrible shade of grey if we hadn’t used enough cream.

An oil/gel hybrid, Vaseline Cocoa Butter Vitalising Gel Body Oil – what a mouthful, eh? – Leaves my skin moisturised, silky smooth, and extremely shiny from the time I leave the house until I’m getting ready for bed at night. Even after those horrible 14hr shifts!

The smell is lovely, however I would prefer it if it was a little stronger as I find it’s a little too ‘delicate’. It reminds me of being on holiday though, so that’s not a bad thing!

For me it’s a summer time essential – bare those legs without shame! – and even during the winter months where skin can become particularly dry, this product is always in use. I love it so much I keep it next to my bed.

It’s great for locking in moisture and making your skin glow, so definitely ideal for locking in your tan whether it’s natural or from a bottle ;)

A 200ml bottle lasts me about 3-4weeks, which I think it quite good considering I apply it very liberally over my skin everyday.

If you’re not a big fan of oils then mix it with your favourite lotion, or apply it sparingly.

This product retails at about £5 in most places, but I often check for it when I’m doing a food shop and pick up a couple when it’s on offer for £3. Bargain.
