I love having soft smooth skin as much as the next girl. However, I'm Lazy. When I get out of the shower, even the thought of slathering on moisturiser and standing there all sticky for the next 20 minutes (minimum) makes me want to cry. So, 99% of the time, I skipped it. My top drawer was soon filled with bottles of body moisturiser purchased with the best intentions and left to die. My skin became dry and rough, particularly over the winter months. Now with a wedding on the cards, dry arms were not on the agenda.
Oh, what was I to do?
When the Vaseline Spray & Go Body Moisturiser first came out I just thought it was another gimmick really. I didn't buy it. A few months later I noticed it had begun to get some really good reviews on beauty blogs and on YouTube. So I thought I would give it a bash.
How glad I was!
This thing is wonderful. I can't really say this without avoiding the cheesy cliché so I'm just going to go for it. "It does exactly as it says on the tin!" All you have to do is spray yourself all over, rub it in for a second and you're pretty much good to go. A few tips for application which I have picked up along the way are:
- if you have a wooden floor like me I’d highly recommend putting a towel under you as some of the spray may make its way on to your floor creating a prime ‘Slip n’ Slide’ surface. (You may also want to put a towel down to protect your carpet).
- Don’t stand too close to a full-length mirror unless you want to spend the next few minutes cleaning said mirror. (This may or may not have happened to me on more than one occasion…)
OK, now you’ve got the stuff on, it’s dried in quickly, and you haven’t made a mess…but does it work?
Yes. Yes, it does. I noticed a difference in my skin pretty much straight away. And as I’ve been making an effort to put this on every day after my shower my skin is definitely in much better shape than it was before.
The Vaseline Spray & Go Body Moisturiser does come in other ‘flavours’ apart from the Aloe Fresh one I’ve chosen. These are Cocoa Radiant and Total Moisture. Have you tried any of these? How did you find them?
You may also want to let the man in your life know that they’ve now brought out some manly ones too!
These are available to purchase in most chemists and supermarkets. Give it a try and let me know what you think. Have you came across any other products which do the same job? I’m always keen to try new things.
