Vaseline Cocoa Butter Deep Conditioning Body Lotion

This is my first post for IMBB..:) I have dry skin and was looking for a reliable good lotion. After checking out various outlets’ various offerings, I decided to Google for some advice.

I was pretty confident about my knowledge on skin products. My skin can go from dry to itchy-ly super dry depending on the temperature. I stumbled upon IMBB and totally love it for its objective way of dealing with a subjective task.

TBS Cocoa butter was pretty tempting but I decided to wait for the TBS sale. I have been there couple of times but I was at college and it was beyond my budget back then. Besides, I was a Dove Lotion fan. And further googling led me to Vaseline Deep Conditioning Cocoa butter lotion.

The only Vaseline product I have loved is the Intensive Care lotion which used be rich and milky , it is now discontinued of course πŸ™ Then, I happened to see this product at Nilgiris near my place:) they don’t have testers( obviously :P) So slyly I managed to pump some out πŸ˜‰ When I reached home, I could feel the lotion smelt good. And the effect was decent, mind you it was a drop of lotion.

I picked up the lotion from H&G. My hand was really dusty, so when I tested this, it kind of made me feel cleaner – Instantly moisturising, in fact.

It’s a drinking-cocoa brown bottle with pump type dispenser for 725 ml and the squeezable bottle for 400 ml.

Packs and MRP*: 400ml @ Rs. 225/- & 725ml @ Rs. 375/-(cool huh?)

Here’s how the bottle looks –

And below is the shot of the ingredient list. I normally never read the ingredient list- too difficult ot keep track of these, but for those conscious, here it is.

Claims – Vaseline cocoa butter deep conditioning body lotion with cocoa & vitamin E melts into skin to smooth away roughness and the appearance of uneven areas, igniting skin’s natural glow at the source. Rich cocoa butter – helps to even skin texture and conditioning moisturizers leave skin smooth and supple.

My experience with Vaseline Cocoa Butter deep Conditioning Body Lotion :

The lotion is not ivory coloured as in the picture. It is the flash’s effect. The colour is a slightly brownish, like the colour of peanut butter. The home-made chocolate / cocoa smell of the lotion is very delicious. I keep smelling my palms all day, it has a feel -good effect πŸ˜› It is not over the top yet lasts though the day. Since my skin is dry, it is great for me. Skin is visibly softer and moisturised. I have to reapply only in the night. It is easily absorbed but it if you immediately pull on a jacket or sweater, I felt it was feeling sweaty.It could turn out to be sticky for those with oily skin. I love it over all. πŸ™‚

Pros of Vaseline cocoa butter deep conditioning body lotion

  • The smell is amazing and lingers on till the end of the day, if you are at work or similar setting. If you are spending the day out, it stays for about 5 – 6 hrs.
  • Great value for money especially the 725 ml pack.
  • Cheaper than the other cocoa butter lotions and quality of product is good.
  • Comes in a pump dispenser- hygienic.

Cons of Vaseline cocoa butter deep conditioning body lotion

  • May turn out to be sticky for oily skin.
  • Bottle can’t be carried around. But one can always find a small, well cleaned, small old-lotion bottle and carry it, if required. I picked up some other lotion to carry around, anyway.

Would I buy it Vaseline cocoa butter deep conditioning body lotion? Yes, would love to, but there are other lotions asking to be bought πŸ™‚

My overall rating for this product would be :-*:-*:-*:-* .

  • Price – 5
  • Effect – 4
  • Availability- 3.5

Cant thank you enough for reviewing this. I always used to buy vaseline regular body lotion for winters but I was never a fan of it. I am using body butters this winters but you do need a body lotion for regular use. I will pick this one up now, I also have dry skin. πŸ™‚

Thank you for reviewing this and welcome to IMBB. :))

I sooooooo wanted to buy this one. I love anything with a cocoa/chocolatey smell. But all the stores in Pune ran out of it on that day :reallyangry: :reallyangry: πŸ˜₯ So got Nivea body milk instead.

I find Vaseline too oily for me. I had its normal (not cocoa or anything) lotion or moisturizer or something, couldn’t use even 1\4th , it was too chip chip.

THIS SOLUTION IS TOO GOOD. I PURCHASED IT 2 DAYS AGO. THE SMELL IS AWESOME. KEEP SMELLING MY HAND :laugh: I GOT 400 ML PACK AND ITS DEFINITELY WORTH THE MONEY. IT JUST MELTS ON MY BODY THOUGH ITS QUITE A THICK LOTION. THE BOTTLE LOOKS DIFFERENT AND COLOR IS CUTE :-*
