I'm not as lithe as the woman in the ad, and I've got a bit more, shall we say, surface area to cover, so I couldn't reproduce the action of the Vaseline Spray & Go commercial — a one continuous motion spray on, rub in and dress — on a dare.
But with a little thought, I got the application down to about a minute. After I figured out to spray legs and arms in separate segments, I saw that where I started would be dry and blessedly nongreasy in the time I got the second part applied. It really was that fast. My can of spray wasn't as evenly dispensing as a spray sunblock, but that might be to avoid over-spray on potentially slick bathroom surfaces.
The cocoa-butter scent is a little heavy on application but doesn't linger; luckily, the softness does. All in all, this is my favorite Vaseline product in some time.
Mornings are always a crazy rush heading out the door. Isn't it sad that saving time on something like moisturizing is such a big deal?
Maybe it's the novelty of a new application system. Maybe it makes me feel like that cute young girl in the commercial. But I like it. I like the speed of application with a quick rub to absorb. There is no greasy, shiny residue. And the cocoa butter scent is heavenly.
Spray & Go is not deep moisturizing. It's just light enough to get you through the day. I prefer heavier lotions at night when they have time to absorb, so this works great for me as part of my morning routine.
I'm planning on trying the other variations, as well.
Kudos to Vaseline.
The company that gave us petroleum jelly in a jar has come up with Vaseline Spray & Go. It's a new twist on body lotion that could be a godsend for many who deal with dry skin.
The spray-on moisturizer absorbed instantly and left my skin feeling great. But, here's hoping Vaseline can come up with a different scent or maybe even a spray-on-dry oil.
While the cocoa butter in Spray & Go is a great moisturizer, it left me smelling like a candy bar and had my golden retriever trailing after me trying to get a taste.
