When I first saw the Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturiser popping up on blogs, I immediately knew I wanted to get my mitts on it. Moisturising my body is one beauty regime I do not enjoy partaking in so anything that claims to make what I regard as a chore easier is a must-have for me. Some may see moisturising with a luxurious body butter soothing and relaxing but for me its just a big fat pain in the bum. I lead a pretty hectic lifestyle so I just don't have time to apply creams and wait around for them to sink in before getting dressed. Don't get me wrong - I do love body butters and have quite the collection (Soap & Glory 'The Righteous Butter' is a personal fave) but they don't get used anywhere near as much as they should because of this very reason.
With this being said, you can imagine my joy when I discovered the clever folk at Vaseline had come up with a genius product that would make moisturising my body oh so easy. I decided to buy it while I was having an online Boots splurge and I'm so glad I did as I am IN LOVE with this product. There's three variations/scents available - Aloe Fresh, Cocoa Radiant and Essential Moisture. I decided to go for Aloe Fresh as I hate Cocoa scented products and I liked the Green Aloe Fresh bottle the most out of all three. When I first ordered it, I wasn't expecting to be blown away - I mean how good can moisturiser in a can be? I'd also read a lot of mixed reviews - some poeple love it and others don't get the hype. Upon first application, I was immediately impressed with the concept - a very fine and even mist of product that transfers to the skin as a milky lotion. I also immediately noticed the scent and its absolutely beautiful - very fresh as the name suggests. Even my boyfriend commented on how nice is smells which is a big compliment coming from a male who wouldn't normally pay any attention to that kind of thing.
I also love how quickly the product sinks into the skin. As soon as I've covered myself with it, it starts sinking in immediately and when rubbed in it vanishes within seconds. As the name of the product states, it really is a 'spray and go' product - spray it on and minutes later you're good to go. There's no need to stand around naked waiting for it to sink in (we've all been there ladies) and it doesn't leave a sticky or greasy film on the skin either. I have to admit it isn't as effective at moisturising my skin as a body butter would be but thats inevitable due to the difference in textures. However, it does still provide my skin with light hydration and I much prefer using this product on an everyday basis than a heavy body butter. I'll still use a body butter when I feel my skin is very dehydrated but for day to day use, the Vaseline Spray & Go is perfect for topping up my skins moisture levels.
So, would I repurchase this product? 100% YES. It may not be the most hydrating moisturiser I've used but for days when I'm in a rush (which is most days) its the perfect product for spritzing on. Its completely effortless and smells divine. If like me you don't have the time for laborious moisturising regimes, you'll love this product.

Lots of Love,
