With the early onset in Delhi of winter and foggy mornings, pleasantly cool evenings and a definite nip in the air, it’s inevitable that my skin will dry out. So this is the time that I have to change my daily skin care routine.

Like every year, this year too I wanted to find a body lotion that keeps its promise of ‘24-hour moisturization’.

Now in the past, I have mostly used olive oil after a bath which is very effective but the leftover oil tends to transfer to my clothes and is very difficult to get rid of. I’ve noticed that for the last 2-3 years, mostly all body lotions in the market maintain that they provide ’24-hour moisturization’. For some lotions, that is true but only if you are willing to slather yourself with very thick layers or use a lotion with a very heavy consistency. Neither work well in winter since it either transfers to your clothes or the thick lotion becomes even thicker because of the cool climate and you have a tough time squeezing it out of the bottle.

Now I have used all the brands that are easily available and this time around, I thought of picking up perhaps the one that’s been around the longest – Vaseline. Although the company manufactures a variety of body lotions to suit every climate, I had never used their winter lotions. On a whim, I picked up the Vaseline Total Moisture Cocoa Glow lotion, primarily because I liked the smell which is a rich coconut, almost edible candy like!

For Rs. 169, a 300 ml bottle seems like a very good bargain especially since you need very little of this very rich and yet light body lotion. And I’ve gotta say, Vaseline truly delivers on the ‘24-hour nourishing lotion for soft and glowing skin’ claim. The lotion does not thicken and easily flows out from the golden brown bottle. It sits light on the skin and the smell is not overpowering.

So far, I honestly do not have any negative comments about Vaseline Total Moisture, but what I hope is for the lotion to maintain this good behavior as the temperature continues to drop and the sun disappears in Delhi!
