I must confess I am terrible when it comes to applying moisturiser on my body daily. I know I should be more diligent but applying moisturiser to my legs, arms, and the rest of my body takes up far too much time for my liking. Because, who has time to wait for their moisturiser to absorb between the time you’re hoping out of the shower and rushing out the door? Not me, that’s for sure! Of course, that doesn’t mean that I don’t want to keep my skin looking healthy and radiant so I had to find a solution and now, by golly I’ve found one! The new range of spray moisturisers from Vaseline Intensive Care is pretty much the product I’ve been searching for all my life. These little cans of joy allow you to moisturise your skin in a flash with the product absorbing in seconds, so there’s no excuse not to have beautifully soft, skin! Here’s why Vaseline Intensive Care Spray Moisturisers are my pick for Hero Product of the Week!
This incredible range of sprays launched overseas a few years ago and has been a firm favourite on many international beauty bloggers’ must-have product lists. For years South African beauties in the know have been waiting and wishing for Vaseline to bring this range of products to the South African market and now, the wait is finally over! The South African range offers 3 different variants including – ‘Aloe Fresh’ (green), ‘Cocoa Radiant’ (brown), and ‘Deep Restore’ (yellow) – with each variant offering a little something different for your skin. The ‘Deep Restore’ leaves the skin feeling healthy and restored while the ‘Cocoa Radiant’ contains pure cocoa butter for glowing skin. I personally love the Aloe Fresh because it’s oh-so-soothing on my dry and sensitive skin.
These new body moisturiser spray canisters make applying moisturiser to your body super easy – to apply simply twist the nozzle head and spray a line of product along your body, then with almost no effort at all rub the product into your skin. The can dispenses a super fine, non-greasy milky mist onto the skin, which absorbs in seconds, leaving you with soft, beautiful skin. The product formula contains tiny, micro-droplets of Vaseline BLUESEAL to help skin absorb moisture more easily and give your skin a much-needed moisture boost. I also love that the sprays don’t contain aerosol, so they’re not harmful to the environment, instead they deliver one continuous spray of lotion through pressurised air, allowing the product to spread evenly and easily.
Another plus with the Vaseline Intensive Care Spray Moisturisers is that they allow you to get to those hard to reach places. The cans are able to spray at all angles (even upside down!) to ensure that you never miss a spot. The contoured aluminium can fits comfortably in your hand and features a twist-lock spray nozzle that prevents spills and makes application easy. The no-spills lid also makes the moisturiser ultra handbag-friendly allowing you to take it with you and apply anytime your skin feels dry.
And, if you think the spray nozzle will force you to use loads of product then think again, a little goes a long way with this product and these canisters will last you ages if you use them the correct way. Sure, there is a tendency to overspray when you first start using it but after a few tries you’ll see that you only need a quick spritz to get all the moisture you need.
The Vaseline Intensive Care Spray Moisturisers are available at major retailers nationwide at R89,99 each. For more information say Hi to Vaseline ZA on Facebook.
