Product of the Month | Vaseline Cocoa Radiant Vitalising Body Gel Oil

It’s been tough for me to pick my Product of the Month this month as I’ve had the choice between this, and a Dermalogica and L’Oreal product but the wonderful Vaseline Cocoa Radiant Vitalising Body Gel Oil is truly deserving of being called Product of the Month.

Like a lot of my purchases, this was on impulse. I was food shopping in Sainsbury’s and as usual, the beauty aisle had this magnetic pull over me and I left with quite a few things. I’d heard quite a lot about Vaseline’s Cocoa Butter range but being the bath & body product snob I am, I didn’t even bother to check out anything. I assumed that as there’d barely be any cocoa butter like other brands (and I was right about that), it wouldn’t be worth trying but I’ve been proven wrong.

My legs get extremely dry so I tend to judge how moisturising something is depending on how moisturised my legs are. If they’re dry after a few hours then it’s a fail and I can say that’s not the case with this. I’m assuming it’s because of the oil, it’s very unique in the sense that it’s a gel and oil at the same time, it reminds me of Dove’s Intensive Lotion for Extra Dry Skin which I completely love as it has the double power of both a lotion and oil. Clearly oils work very well on my legs. Not only are my legs moisturised but they’re left smooth and glistening! I can imagine how it’d look on bronzed skin.

Pop the gel oil on top of the radiator for no more than ten minutes whilst you’re having a bath or shower, then massage it into your skin when you’ve come out. You’ll seriously feel very pampered and considering that it’s very cheap (only £4.99!), it feels like a luxury product!

        Maybe you are just particularly allergic to some products- people have different skins so it’s a must to test a product in a small patch of your skin before you use it. at least 24 hours or more

    I love this! Lasts for absolutely ages because you really don’t need to use a lot. I use this on my legs and feet on days when I know I won’t be doing much =)
