~ The Product ~
The product is made by Vaseline and is called essential moisture cocoa radiant. The lotion is a rich feeling lotion with extracts of pure cocoa butter for healthy glowing skin. The Cocoa Butter Lotion claims to penetrate skin where dryness starts and helps to smooth away roughness and the appearance of dark spots, igniting the skin's natural glow. The extract of cocoa butter also helps to even skin tone appearance whilst the conditioning moisturisers leave skin feeling smooth and supple. I have read a few reviews about this product but decided to try it myself when I saw it on offer in my local Superdrug store. The product also appealed to me due to the fact that is has extract of cocoa butter in as I always find that this makes my skin really soft and smooth. Vaseline has been making products since 1870 and their products still remain popular today. They have a wide range of skin care products including lotions, creams, gels, lip care and other products. Their range of products can be found in many stores including Boots, Superdrug and local supermarkets.
~ Price/Availability ~
You can buy this product from Boots and Superdrug; how-ever prices may vary. For a 200ml bottle in boots the current price is £3.55. I purchased this in Superdrug for £1.77 which was on offer for half price. This is the main reason why I purchased the lotion, due to how cheap it was. This is also available to buy in 400ml and is also half-price at Superdrug for just £2.64. There are some other products in this range including Cocoa Butter Oil Gel and
~ Packaging ~
The product comes in a tall plastic bottle which is quite thin. The bottle is bronzed coloured with a dark brown lid. The colour of the bottle goes perfectly with the name of this product as its called cocoa radiant. On the front it states that the product is made by Vaseline and is a rich feeling lotion for healthy glowing skin. On the back of the product is a list of ingredients and some information about the product and what it claims to do. It also states that the product is made by Unilever and there are contact details on the back of the bottle should you have any complaints or what to contact them about anything. The packaging is slightly eye catching due to the bronzed colour of the bottle, which looks rather like something that fake tan would be stored in. If I wanted to buy the product again I would be able to spot it straight away as other skin care products tend to be in white or lighter coloured packaging.
~ Using the product ~
I sometimes suffer from dry patches and often get outbreaks of eczema. To keep my skin in good condition I tend to use a moisturiser at least twice a day, once in the morning and in the evening to help keep my skin soft and supple. I decided to apply the lotion after showering to obtain the best results. I patted my skin dry with a towel and then flipped the lid open. I smelt the product before dispensing any and the lotion smelt lovely, it had a lovely sweet scent to it but it wasn't so sweet that it smelt sickly. The lotion was a beige colour and was quite thick, I only dispensed a small amount onto my fingers and I rubbed it into my arms. I needed a little more so I squeezed the bottle to dispense some more. The lotion felt really soft against my skin and was easy to rub in. As soon as I started rubbing the lotion over my skin I could smell the delicious sweet smell. I continued to apply the product over the whole of my body and by the time I had done this I could really smell the cocoa butter. The lotion only took a few minutes to soak in and it left my skin feeling soft and smooth. The smell of the product stayed on my skin which I loved. The lotion wasn't greasy and didn't leave my skin feeling greasy either which was great.
~ Overall Opinion ~
The smell of the product is gorgeous, and I love the fact that the smell of it stayed on my skin throughout the day. The product was easy to apply and I didn't need to use too much as a little goes a long way. I loved the fact that the product was absorbed easily and quickly leaving my skin feels smooth. I have been using the product for approximately 3 days and I think my skin is noticeably smoother and softer than it was before. I will continue to use this product and when it runs out I would consider buying it again. I recommend this product to others and give it a well-deserved 5 out of 5 stars.
