Greasy Does It

The Bachelorette Bash at the beach this past weekend was great with the exception of the sun poison we got on the first day that left my feet swollen like I was eight months pregnant! I'm finally able to wear something other than flip flops.At Wally World yesterday, I ran across a new Vaseline product while I was in the lotion aisle. It was Vaseline Cocoa Butter Vitalizing Gel Body Oil (whew! that's a mouthful), and I decided to give it a try. I'm a sucker for new products and two of my favorite magazines, Lucky & Allure, had both recommended it for the winter. It smells delicious. (I had wondered if it was going to have a suntan oil smell to it, because of the cocoa butter, but it did not.)

I used it for the first time last night when I started to get the itchies. I love this stuff! It is a bit greasy, but it's not runny because it is in a gel form (note that a little goes a LONG way). My skin is so incredibly soft this morning. I for see an addiction to this, right along with my scrub!

The only downfall I see is that there is no way I could use this body oil/gel as an everyday lotion replacement. It's too heavy for daytime but an excellent moisturizing night treatment.

Oh and if you don't watch out, you'll slide ride off the toilet seat! I'm just saying. Not that I would personally know.

And one more warning: I have been told that it can stain your clothes.

Hey Hillary,
I picked up some of this product, and it is AWESOME! It is a bit much for day, but I use it nightly now. Next, I'm going to try the BeautiControl scrub. I am obsessed with products too.....I hope you are doing well.
