Vaseline Spray & Go


Included in my Influenster Sugar 'n Spice VoxBox was Vaseline's New Spray & Go lotion. It's essentially lotion in a can which should make it much simpler to use. It's one of those products you don't think you would ever really need, but when you use it - it's addictive.

So the cap opens and closes by clicking either to the left (closed) or right (open). You give it a good shake and then press down on the top to spray out the lotion. It features a continuous spray so you don't have to stop because it's "lost its juice". The spray is fast and a bit forceful so make sure you don't do it too close to your skin because some lotion will actually fly off your arm. Also no need to press down hard on the top because a lot will come out at once. I think that was really my only issue was that it is a bit harder to control how much actually comes out of the can. The spray is fast, the lotion easily comes out, and its easy to open and close.

The lotion itself comes out as a semi-liquid. As you can see in the photo it comes out really white so you know where you sprayed. The lotion smells really good, a nice flowery powdery smell. Yes I realize neither of those are really words, but its what I'm using! So anyway, the lotion rubs in really quickly and easily. It left my skin feeling silky smooth and it really did just take a couple of seconds to disappear. Now it did take a little longer though to really absorb and I was left with a sort of "wet" feeling for a bit. Other than that it works perfectly especially for when you need it quickly. So why use this instead of traditional lotion in a bottle? Well thats a harder question to answer - but one major upside is the continuous spray. It eliminates that time when you have to stop and get more lotion to apply. Especially those times when your lotion bottle is almost empty and you have to shake it up and down to try and get the lotion moving down.  Overall its a great alternative to the traditional lotion and really handy to have around.
