One of my super-best buds is an esthetician (a skin specialist) and she swears by Vaseline as her nightly moisturizer of choice. She's got beautiful skin, and she's also thrifty, so she always picks up the generic, drugstore brand of petroleum jelly. At less than $5.00 she's got a moisturizer that lasts her for months and months, because a little goes a long way.
I also believe in sticking to a simple, yet effective beauty routine. Just as my friend swears by petroleum jelly, I am an avid proponent of cocoa butter. Getting me to venture into the petroleum jelly camp would take some sort of miracle. I'm stubborn like that.
Recently, I ran out of my favorite brand of cocoa butter and found myself disappointed when I discovered that my local discount drugstore doesn't carry my personal favorite. I had to settle for another brand, and since I couldn't choose just one I picked up a couple of varieties to compare.
Beauty 360 has a Cocoa Butter Petroleum Jelly that claims to be a decent duplicate for Vaseline Cocoa Butter Petroleum Jelly. I figure since my bestie loves petroleum jelly, and I am crazy for cocoa butter, this product could be a magical match made in heaven. Behold the power of my lady logic!
