Sponsored Post: Moisturize On-The-Go With The Vaseline Intensive Care Spray Moisturizer Aloe Soothe
Don’t let your skin feel parched after this summer’s beach outings, pool parties, trail hikes, tennis matches, jogs in the park, and outdoor cookouts! After any instance of prolonged sun exposure, give your skin some much-needed TLC with the Vaseline Intensive Care Aloe Soothe Spray Moisturizer ($7.99 at mass retailers nationwide; visit Vaseline.us to learn more) a non-greasy, fast-drying, and easy-to-use spray-on lotion that leaves skin feeling replenished, soft, and supple. Formulated with cooling and soothing aloe, it’s the perfect after-sun treatment, but you’ll love it so much you’ll also want to use it before any summertime outings.
Ever since I received a sample of the Vaseline Intensive Care Aloe Soothe Spray Moisturizer, it’s been a staple in my beach bag (and even in my everyday totes!). Why? Well, for starters, it’s incredibly portable since each 6.5 oz. bottle features a spray nozzle that twists and locks into place, so that no product is accidentally dispensed inside your bag (as often happens with other lotions and gels) and, only once the clickable dial is positioned to reveal the nozzle can you press down on the button at the top , placing your index finder along the grooved indentation for a better grip and more control.
Second, the Vaseline Intensive Care Aloe Soothe Spray Moisturizer is formulated with glycerin, a well-known humectant and conditioner; aloe extract, which has been used since ancient times to heal wounds, soothe sunburns, treat psoriasis and eczema, and even to tackle acne; and micro-droplets of Vaseline Jelly that help to create a protective barrier around the skin to safeguard against moisture loss and prevent chapping, flaking, and peeling. On a sensory level, these micro-droplets also make for a more lightweight consistency and minimize any potential greasiness. What you get is the healing and comfort you desire — without any balminess (a problem with many a dense lotion) or sticky residue (which a lot of aloe gels do leave behind).
Third, the application process is speedy and intuitive. Some spray-on lotions sputter and act sporadically, propelling a paltry mist of product , then suddenly ejecting an overwhelming, geyser-like rush of lotion. The Vaseline Intensive Care Aloe Soothe Spray Moisturizer, however, dispenses a steady and unwavering stream of product, so that you can cover large surface areas with just one all-over spray. In fact, with just a hint of practice, you can cover practically your entire body, moving the bottle of lotion around in undulating shapes to coat arms, hips, legs, and more. Once the aloe-rich lotion lands on the skin, you simply have to rub it in and wait for it to be absorbed — a process that takes all of 30 seconds!
Once the lotion has been absorbed by the skin, you’ll notice its texture is vastly improved so that it feels softer to the touch. Moreover, it smells delightfully fresh thanks to the aloe in the formula.
Not only do I apply the Vaseline Intensive Care Aloe Soothe Spray Moisturizer after showering (which significantly cuts down on my prep time), but I keep it in my bag for routine touch-ups. Just this past Saturday, during a park outing with my son in which we enjoyed a picnic, played some frisbee, and enjoyed the gorgeous weather, I stopped by a bench to apply a touch of lotion to my arms and legs. As you’ll see below, by just holding the lotion bottle four inches from the skin and pressing down on the cap, I was able to cover the length of my arm in less than five seconds. How can you beat that?
Nowadays, whenever I’m planning some fun in the sun, I make sure to pack a great sunscreen (I love the Sun Bum Moisturizing Sunscreen Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 50 for the body and the Clarins UV Plus Anti-Pollution Sunscreen SPF 50 for the face); a pre-sun hair protector like the sunflower seed oil-enriched Fekkai Pré-Soleil Hair Mist; one of the Lipstick Queen Endless Summer Lipstick shades, which contain SPF 15 protection (I love Aloha, a fiery red hue); Tatcha blotting papers to control any excess oil (especially if I’m wearing a beauty balm or foundation); the La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water, for when I need to mist my complexion for a quick pick-me-up; and the Vaseline Intensive Care Aloe Soothe Spray Moisturizer.
