      While I try to use more powerful lotions on my problem areas (my hands, my feet, my knees and elbows), I have been trying out more mild lotions for the rest of my body. My skin gets awfully dry, and it seems like the harsher lotions do not help on more sensitive body skin. I have been using Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Butter as an everyday body lotion for a few weeks now, and while I have used better lotions, this one does an alright job of keeping my skin well hydrated throughout the day. It does have an odd smell for a cocoa butter, and it is a bit more greasy than I would like, but I cannot say I have many complaints outside of those and the price.

      My skin gets very dry at seeming random times. Areas like my feet and my elbows get so dry sometimes that the skin cracks. I use more powerful lotions,


      usually with AHA or urea in them, on these areas, but those lotions are too powerful and too expensive to use as an everyday body lotions. I decided on this particular cocoa butter because cocoa butter is a good moisturizer, and I hear nothing but good things about the brand from people whom I know to use it. For the most part, I apply it right after my morning shower, and it does do a decent job of retaining that moisture for the better part of the day. Some days it does a better job of this than others, such as days where it is particularly dry out, or days where it is extremely windy, but this is not too big an issue right now.

      Another good thing about this lotion is that it does not bleed out of your skin unless you are really sweating hard. During the work day, I tend to sweat quite a bit, but it ...


      • seems like I do not notice the telltale white residue on my work clothes unless I have been exerting myself to the point where I sweat a ton. While it would be nice if it did not bleed out at all, but the fact that it barely does so is definitely a plus, especially considering the last few lotions I have used have bleed out far too much.

        This lotion has an odd smell, and I really cannot put my finger on what it is. It does have your average cocoa butter smell, and while that is to be expected, there is also this slightly perfumey secondary smell that is not exactly offensive, just odd for a cocoa butter. I can honestly say, though, that I have only ever noticed this smell as i was putting it on, and when I have been sweating a lot. I guess it smells okay otherwise, but any perfume smell is an unwelcome one

        as far as I am concerned.

        My biggest complaint is that this lotion is far more greasy than I would like from a cocoa butter lotion. It does go on smooth enough, but it feels too greasy after some of the water in the lotion has evaporated off, and I did not like the way it felt on my skin for the first hour or so after I applied it. I suppose this is a rather small complaint, considering this lotion is not bad at getting the job done, but it was something that has nagged me.

        Overall, this is a very good lotion, besides a few points that it could be better on. While I will probably continue to use this lotion, I may start alternating it with something else as the weather gets colder. For a late summer lotion, it has worked well, but I do not know how well it will work when things get colder and dryer.
