It’s a spritz-and-go world that we live in and now Vaseline has jumped into the game with a spray body moisturizer. No fuss, no muss, no waiting: just spritz, rub, and you’re out the door. Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer ($8) dispenses lotion quickly and evenly and comes in three varieties: Aloe Fresh, Cocoa Radiant, and Total Moisture.
I tried the Total Moisture, which is formulated with pure oat extract and Vaseline’s Stratys-3, a multi-layer moisturizer that quickly absorbs into skin with just a quick rub. At first, I was a little wary about a spray-on lotion—I was so used to slathering on heavy creams. Would such a quick alternative really make my skin feel silky smooth even in dry and cold weather? The answer, fortunately, is yes.
Application is fool-proof: just hold the can four inches from your skin and spray it over arms, legs, and body in a continuous motion. Then, quickly rub it into your skin and you’re ready to go. Now there’s no more waiting for your lotion to dry before having to throw on clothes. Even better, there’s no more of that greasy or sticky feeling either. Plus, I noticed that my skin felt soft and moisturized hours after use.
Fair warning: if you decide to use it in the office for a little moisture pick-me-up, you may get a few strange looks when your colleagues hear someone spraying. If you’re in the market for a moisturizing facial spritz, we have a great round-up here. And those suffering from dry skin or eczema can look into CapriClear Spray-on Moisturizer, which is applied the same way but the gentle hypo-allergenic formula makes it safe for all skin types while alleviating very dry and itchy skin.

Winter is in full swing and so are the harsh realities of dry, cracking winter skin. Moisturizing is, of course, key, and what better way to soothe your skin than with shea butter, a naturally-derived fat that absorbs quickly into the skin without leaving a greasy feeling? From hair to nails, lotions to face masks, shea butter is a powerful dryness fighting ingredient found in many products.
No round-up is complete without a nod to the master of shea butter brands: L’Occitane. With a wide range of body care, from its cult classic hand cream to lotions, shampoos, and condi
