$1,000 SpaFinder Card Giveaway and Your Morning Routine

 

 

I recently had the opportunity to test a new product: Vaseline® Spray & Go Moisturizer (specifically, the Total Moisture® variant). I am happy to say that I really liked it, which makes writing this review easy! We were getting ready for a weekend getaway in Coeur d’Alene when a box arrived containing this new product. The timing was great because not only did I have an opportunity to try it, I had a few of my older kids use the moisturizer too, and I also gave it a go with my little boys.

 

 

The idea is that that this spray moisturizer is quick to use–spray it on and it absorbs in seconds–no waiting to get dressed. I’m all for things that help me move through my morning more quickly and that make my life easier. The older kids who tried it liked it for the same reason. After a shower, the instructions say to spray it up one side of your body and down the other. The spray works well at any angle, even upside down, so it’s easy to use. Truth be told, when I was offered the chance to review this, I was even more interested in using it to save time after Eby and Little Man’s showers. Their dark skin needs lots of moisture, and if we skip lotion after a shower, it shows. They can’t lotion up very well on their own yet, often dripping lotion on the floor, or not getting it rubbed in very well before putting on their pajamas. If I don’t check, they’ll skip lotion all together. Last weekend when we were on vacation, I had the boys shower, dry off, and then I sprayed them, front and back, before having them put their pajamas on. It was super fast, and they were dry in moments. I won’t be surprised if Vaseline® comes out with a line of this product just for kids. I think it would sell well and make life just a tiny bit easier for busy parents. Learn more about this product by going to their Facebook page. How would Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer max your morning? You can enter into a drawing to win a $1,000 SpaFinder gift card by leaving a comment below!

    Time saver for the morning, you bet. I often end up skipping lotion except on my face because I don't have time for it to "sink in" before I need to get dressed. Lotion can be so messy as well. This product sounds great.

    With two little guys (ages 1 and 3) and another one on the way, every extra minute counts in my morning routine. Using Vaseline Spray and Go Moisturizer would save me just a few more minutes by simply spraying it on rather than using my usual lotion routine. I would definitely give it a try!

    this would be so great for my mixed boy. he gets dry skin too if not moisturized after bath (at bedtime) or the pool. because of time, I often skip it after the pool, which I should NOT do! 🙁 something to spray on would make it sooo much faster! in addition, he has had sensory issues. for whatever reason, he now tolerates sunscreen spray better than lotion! 🙂

    I just might use lotion if it were this easy. The only lotion I get is leftover from rubbing down my little guy's legs and my endocrinologist has scolded me for not using lotion more regularly. To spray and to would be great for a busy mom.

    Perfect product. My husband's favorite way to punish the kids (without them knowing it) is to put lots of lotion on them and then give them long-sleeved pajamas and tell them to put them on. Yes, he's a little evil, but I have to admit, I find this game funny, too.
