vaseline Body Oils Review aloe vera cocoa butter skincare

As someone who regularly suffers from dry skin, I find that having the right moisturiser or body lotion is essential to keep my skin soft and well-nourished especially during the winter time. I have actually made a resolution for the New Year to moisturise my entire body overtime I get out of the shower, something I neglected to do previously *slaps wrist*.

 Vaseline is a great brand that is well-known for its hydrating skincare, one of which being the Vaseline lip balms which remains a staple in my make-up bag. My mum has been using this brand for years so it was only fitting that I finally give it a try and attempt to stick to my goals of looking after my skin to keep it in tip-top condition.

The first one I have been trying out is the Aloe Fresh Moisturising Body Gel. This is a light formula that is great if you have redness of irritated skin. It glides on to the skin and absorbs really quickly so theres no worry about feeling sticky after you put your clothes on. I was surprised at the lack of moisture this provides as I was expecting it to be more of a moisturising gel. However, unlike usual aloe vera gels that can dry the skin out, this doesn't do anything to it really. It is a really soothly product though so I would personally use it on as well as my regular moisturiser for that added softness. It is also great for sunburns and such problems as it just feels so good when applying!

The other one I have been using quite frequently is this Cocoa Butter Body Oil that is a lot more useful for my skin as it provides great moisture! Its not a sticky formula at all and absorbs relatively quickly into the skin. I find that I don't need to apply anything else apart from this to my body, and so that defiantly makes it a good product to quickly slap on for daily use. I also really like the scent of this, surprisingly, as it isn;t too strong but you still get that hint of cocoa. I would recommend this if you're looking for a very inexpensive body oil that is easy to apply and gives off a lovely glowing finish without looking greasy.

Both of these products from Vaseline are pretty great. Like I said before, the Aloe Vera one is good for soothing skin and irritation but isn't great if you're looking for something to nourish your skin. The cocoa one is great however for that added moisture, and it is so inexpensive too.


  1. I love the sound of both of these! The aloe vera one sounds perfect for summer! I love anything with cocoa butter in it too
