Chocolate-y gorgeousness from Vaseline

Easter might be over, and you may have sworn off chocolate
for the rest of the month, but you can at least still enjoy the smell of it
thanks to Vaseline’s range of cocoa butter flavoured products.             
I’ve seen the odd cocoa flavoured Vaseline pot dotted around
the office at work, plus my little sister’s got one, but now I’ve got to
experience much more of the delectable range – and it’s good.     
Amongst other things, they’ve got a cocoa butter – similar to
the infamous butters sold by the Body Shop – as well as a body gel oil and lip stick

As you’d expect, the body butter is thicker than a moisturiser,
though not as thick as the Body Shop’s range of butters, in my opinion.  However it moisturises well, and I much
prefer this to the original Vaseline body lotion, which I’ve always found a
little too light and absorbent.  Plus, you’ve
guessed it, Vaseline’s Cocoa Butter smells amazing.  As it’s a hefty tub, it’ll last a while, so I
reckon, if used every day, you could smell chocolate-y for a couple of months
before you need to run out and restock.  So it’s not a bad investment considering its
RRP is £5.10.

For the same price you could also get the body oil gel,
which is my personal favourite from the range. 
I’m already a devoted fan of oils for the skin (see my rave about
coconut oil here).  The great thing about
this being a gel is that it spreads so easily, and comes on thicker than a
liquid oil.  So it’s feels like it’s a
much deeper moisturiser.  While it might
never outshine my beloved coconut oil, it comes pretty damn close, and also has
the distinct advantage of smelling a lot nicer than coconut oil.  In fact, the cocoa fragrance is strong enough
to linger for most of the day after application.

Then of course, there’s the staple Vaseline Lip Therapy petroleum
jelly.  If you don’t know about the
original Vaseline jelly, you’ve clearly been living under a rock.  This is basically a twist on the jelly, with
the added flavouring of cocoa butter and the handy-ness of a tin that can slip
into any sized bag.  It really needs no
further explanation.  It’s simply like
rubbing chocolate Vaseline on your lips. But be warned, it might smell good
enough to eat, but it certainly isn’t to be consumed.
