My week long trial has been focused on the hero product within the range: Vaseline Cocoa Radiant Essential Moisture Daily Body Lotion. The formula is thick and creamy, providing just the right amount of density to really feel like the lotion is getting to work. However, it's non-greasy and dries within around five minutes, ensuring you still have time to apply in the morning before you dash out the door. I usually save the body moisturiser for before bed, as I can't stand the sticky-tights feeling when a lotion simply doesn't absorb; however, the Vaseline lotion absorbed into my skin fast enough for me to do my makeup and put my tights on last without getting in a twist. My legs felt protected and instantly hydrated, as well as the delicate cocoa scent helping to lift my mood and leave me feeling comforted. Before bed the moisturiser provided me with a soft and soothing layer that could be absorbed while I slept, with the scent allowing me to drift off and dream of bathing in chocolate. I really like how rich the moisturiser is and how it instantly helps to soothe and hydrate my skin; the texture of the cream ensures it's a pleasure to apply, while the end result is smooth and supple limbs. Although my skin isn't quite oozing radiance just yet, the improvement in its overall texture and appearance is already clear.
What's even better is that the Vaseline Cocoa Radiant formula is also available in a gel and spray format, for those of you that need quicker results or a more intense injection of moisture. The 'spray and go' moisturiser provides a much lighter texture that it super quick to absorb, making it perfect for use when you're in a rush or for taking to the gym. Although the result isn't as intense as the body lotion, the lightness makes it a great addition if you're worried about sticking to your clothes (as well as being perfect for warmer months.) The Vaseline Cocoa Butter Vitalising Gel Body Oil is an innovative formula that is great to apply straight after a shower, replenishing skin and helping to lock in moisture that is sometimes stripped by gels and washes. Although this provides a strange sensation initially (I'm not used to body oils at all,) the end result is a non-sticky finish that catches the light to provide even the dullest of skin with a hit of radiance. Considering prices of the Cocoa Radiance products start at £2.99, I'm seriously impressed. I'll continue to use the lotions until the very last drop and will definitely be stocking up again before the winter is out.
Vaseline Essential Moisture Cocoa Radiant Rich Feeling Lotion is available from Boots. Prices start at £2.99 for a 200ml bottle.
