Sahara Skin Savior

Hi girls,
It's sooo cooold! I LOATHE it. I'm such a summer creature, I can't even tell you. When the weather drops below 45-ish degrees, my skin becomes so scaly and parched--not my face skin, my body skin. No one wants to rub up against an alligator wearing too much lip gloss, least of all my mysteriously supple-skinned man (I figured it out...Adam uses a lavender body oil scrub every night after the gym. When I met this man, he was shampooing with Irish Spring bar soap). Anyway, being me, I've tried every lotion, body butter, and shower gel on the market, and yet I've never really found the thing to quench my skin's constant Sahara-aridness. And then, lo, Vaseline sent me their new line of body moisturizers (cue angels trilling from above).

Vaseline Cocoa Butter Vitalizing Gel Body Oil ($6.99) has all the moisturizing benefits of a body oil, but it comes in GEL form, so it's not all greasy and slippery. Here's the trick: You apply the gel all over (a little goes a loong way) while you're soaking wet in the shower or bath--the gel locks in the moisture from the water, keeping you hydrated that much longer. When you towel off, you're skin will be so gloriously dewy and soft, you won't even need body cream, I SWEAR. It's the best feeling, hopping out of the tub and knowing you can skip that step! Plus, you'll smell terrific--the gel is infused with Brazil nut oil and tons of cocoa butter, which leaves you smelling faintly, lusciously sweet. And you can't beat the price, right?
xoxo,
Tia

This gel also has mineral oil in it, as the first ingridient actually. It clogged my pores and made me break out really bad! Just an FYI for anyone else who has sensitive skin...

I am all over that gel. I get really dry skin and so now I'm switching over to creamier products like Dove Cream Oil Body Was and Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream. It's feels like it's a never-ending fight against scaliness, ugh.

Ok, so can someone please explain the difference between this gel and Johnson's Baby Oil Gel? I use Johnson's Baby Oil Gel with no problems, and to me, this new product sounds like the exact same thing, just over priced to hype it up. If anyone has tried them both, please let me know what you think? Thanks.
