Vaseline Brings Black Women to the Table With Its Illuminate Me Collection | Interview

The body oil delivers moisture to the skin using sweet almond oil. Its lightweight formula sinks in so you’re not left feeling greasy afterward. The blend of four shimmers (bronze, gold, copper, and brown) gives melanin-rich skin a gorgeous, sheen subtle enough that you don’t feel like you bathed in highlighter. Use each product on its own or combine them for a dewy, moisturized finish on the skin. 

Blac, Martinez, and Stephens wanted to ensure that they were not only producing two body-care products for Black women and their skin, but that they were also providing a space for these women to be seen. 

“There are so many aspects of the world that tell us that we don’t deserve it and that we are not worthy of these kinds of things. For me, it’s just really important to use every opportunity to reinforce the opposite,” Martinez says. “I hope that every Black woman who uses these products understands that and feels like the spotlight is on her always.” 

Each body product is available at or your local store for $10.
