Okay, this is probably one of the biggest beauty no-nos, but I have to admit that I am a total slacker when it comes to moisturising.
I always, always make sure that I put moisturiser on my face every morning and night, however I can never be bothered to put it over my body. You see, I get really cold in my house, so the last thing I want to do when I get out of a nice warm shower is slather loads of cold cream over my body (brrr).
It is also massive effort. Lazy, I know, but hey I’m just being honest!
So, when I saw Vaseline’s new Spray & Go moisturiser range, I thought my prayers had been answered! I was informed you just quickly spray the product, which dries instantly and then you’ll be left with silky smooth skin.
Now, they were right about the spray part, that was easy enough. It did dry quick too and it had a nice chocolate-y cocoa smell. The only thing wrong with it…?
IT WAS FREEZING.
Yep, from the first spray it felt like I was actually dousing myself in ice.
Now I thought maybe I was just extra cold that day, or it was a shock to the system, however I tried for a second time that evening and once again I was left chillier than a polar bear in the South Pole.
Resigning to the fact that I wasn’t going to use the product anymore, I decided to spray my sister with it, attempting to shock her with its icy mist (mature, I know). However, it actually had the opposite effect – she loved the product and then began to use it.
So, now I am left confused; am I just a cold-blooded weirdo or is this moisturiser actually way, way too cold to use?
I’m afraid I can’t give you this answer. All I’ll say is that the product wasn’t for me. It smells nice and isn’t that expensive but that’s about it. I didn’t even feel think it moisturised that well. The thing with sprays is that you are also missing out on the massaging effect, which helps reduce cellulite and boost circulation.
So there we have it, it is a thumbs down from me for the Vaseline Spray & Go Body moisturiser I’m afraid.
If you do want to try the product however, you can purchase it from Boots for £4.99. As well as the ‘Cocoa Radiant’ version of the product, there is also an original spray, as well as an Aloe Fresh edition.
