Whew! After almost two months of … nothing, I finally had the urge to blog! It’s what they call writer’s block but I’m not a writer so, bloggers block? Anyhoo… let’s get it on. What inspired me to blog is my fear of stretch marks. ugh!
My growing belly has started to show (ugly) dark lines and it really scared the heck out of me. I have been moisturizing religiously and although I know that creams and lotions don’t really work when it comes to stretch marks, I still needed to do something about it. At least I know I tried to prevent it, you know…must be the hormones. =D
I’ve been using Vaseline’s Cocoa Butter Deep Conditioning Body Lotion ever since it came out in the market. I just love the way it smells! And it’s very light too! non greasy and absorbs easily.
Then I found Vaseline’s Cocoa Body Butter. It’s so rich and moisturizing! Perfect for those really dry areas like elbows and knees. But it’s also non greasy so I use it all over my body. Perfection!!
The only item that I couldn’t get my hands on is this:
Vaseline’s Cocoa Butter Vitalizing Gel Body Oil. According to reviews, this baby really moisturizes your body and it lasts the whole day. You only need a little since its oil and it’s perfect to apply right after you got out of the bath. Just spread over damp skin and you’re good to go.
Unfortunately, I can’t find the body oil anywhere in Dubai. I would really really love to have the whole range and use them all together for total cocoa butter experience! I’m telling you, its really addicting.
* note – our skin reacts differently so what works for me might not work for you. And although Vaseline is a trusted brand, I’ve read in some forums that there are a few that reacted badly to these products (rashes?)
I have also tried Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula: Body Butter and I broke out big time!
So be careful when trying products.
