Vaseline Essential Moisture Cocoa Radiant Lotion
Advantages: Light, non-greasy, nice scent, works extremely well
I recently bought the Vaseline Aloe Fresh Lotion on offer and loved it, so when I spotted the other 2 new Vaseline Essential Moisture lotions on offer in Morrisons I picked up one of each; the Essential Moisture Clean Feeling Lotion, and the Cocoa Radiant Rich Feeling Lotion, and this Cocoa Radiant one was the first I tried. I'm not sure how much I paid for it at the time but the usual price for a 200ml bottle is about £3.50.
It comes in a nice looking brown plastic bottle with a flip top lid which makes it easy and convenient to use. The bottle isn't too rigid which means you can squeeze it easily to get the lotion out even when you get down to the last bits.
The lotion has a medium consistency, not too runny or thin and not thick or heavy like a body butter or cream. It has a smooth, creamy texture and a sweet cocoa butter scent. I'm often not keen on cocoa butter products as I find the scent too sweet and overpowering, but this one is actually quite subtle and nice.
The smooth texture means it massages easily over the skin, and a little does go a long way. It absorbs pretty quickly leaving my skin feeling soft and smooth with a dewy finish. It doesn't feel greasy or sticky, or make my skin feel coated, and I can get dressed after about a minute after applying.
This leaves my skin feeling really soft and easily deals with dry skin patches that I get from time to time. I've also been using this on my feet and it has left them feeling brilliantly soft and smooth, and smelling sweet too! I really like how this manages to leave my skin super-soft and smooth without leaving it feeling greasy or clammy like richer products do.
Overall I'd definitely recommend this for anyone with areas of dry skin who doesn't like the feeling of heavy creams or butters.
Summary: A fantastic lotion for drier skin
