Meet my current best friend:
My skin has been freakishly dry this winter. I’m not sure why, as we haven’t been having a particularly cold winter, but I’ve been itchy and my skin looks parched.
Enter the product shown above. Hello, Vaseline Cocoa Butter Body Oil Gel!
Here’s what I love about this product – it works like baby oil used to, when I would slather it all over myself just before getting out of the shower, but without the problems. Problems, you ask? What problems?
The problem I always ran into is that a) I smelled like baby oil (not offensive, certainly, but a bit powdery for my tastes) and b) the baby oil would turn the bottom of the shower into an oil slick, and I would come dangerously close to falling flat on my back while in the shower the next day. No longer does this happen! The gel stays put, has a lovely mild cocoa butter smell that doesn’t interfere with my perfume, and seals the moisture into my skin like a champ. (And it’s CHEAP. Really, really cheap.)
No more dry, scaly skin. No more itching. Win.
