Bye-bye Dry Skin

Vaseline Cocoa Glow Lotion review

Written by Haya Qamar on October 17, 2016


I have dry skin throughout the year, but during the winter it goes into hyper-dryness mode. My skin looks dull and lifeless, almost like it’s begging for moisture. I was in search of a thick, super moisturizing lotion that I could use daily to remedy my dryness.

I came across Vaseline Total Moisture Cocoa Glow lotion – it promised 24 hour nourishment with soft and glowing skin – and it was time to put it to the test. The ingredients include cocoa butter (which is one of my favourites for winter moisturizing) and Stratys 3, which goes deep into the layers of your skin to moisturize from within (I won’t lie, this took a bit of research!). Another plus point is that it has droplets of petroleum jelly, and we all know how moisturizing that is!

As soon as I opened the bottle, the sweet smell of cocoa butter saturated my senses. The lotion has a thicker formula than the other variants which is great for dryer seasons – but the thing about it that I absolutely loved was that it didn’t leave any residue behind. Instead it leaves behind a light glow on the skin, which could add some luminescence to your look on a night out!

Getting something effective with pure cocoa butter at such an affordable proce is amazing, because now I don’t have to feel bad about slathering it on daily to quench my oh-so thirsty skin!
