For That Everyday Glow: Nivea Cocoa Butter Body Cream

Sometimes you want your skin to have a subtle, soft, and subtle on camera. I recommend the Nivea Cocoa Butter Body Cream as a base for all my photoshoots. It's great for skin that's already dry because it doesn't sit on top with a greasy look and feel. It absorbs into your skin and leaves you looking healthy. This is also a great everyday moisturizer to incorporate into your daily routine.

For the Fresh Out of the Shower Feel: Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant Spray Moisturizer

Black skin should look rich and deep on camera and Vaseline's Spray Moisturizer helps you achieve that. The spray formula is light to the touch and rubs in easily. it leaves your skin looking glowy and it smells delicious. The can isn't convenient to carry around so it's definitely something to either keep stocked in your studio or in your big go-bag, but definitely not a purse piece.

For Rich, Deep Shine: Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant Body Gel Oil

I LOVE Vaseline's body gel oil - it's all the slickness of baby oil, but manageable like lotion. And it smells amazing. If you want shiny skin without the strong smell of baby powder lingering on you. You won't worry about oil dripping everywhere either. Be careful when you apply it though, it will make you very slippery. Worth the risk.

For Full Glossy Look: Coconut Oil

If you want to keep it all-natural, opt for coconut oil! It smells great, applies easily, and absorbs well into the skin. It's great for anyone with sensitive skin or prone to allergies. It melts at body temperature, so it's super easy to rub into your skin. Be careful as it can be very slippery!
