Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer Review: Influenster Sugar & Spice VoxBox Review

Hello, My name is OnlyAverageMom, and I have very dry skin.  At least when it's NOT summer; because then I have oily skin.  I was raised in a very dry and cold area of Northern New York, and once I became a "real" grown up, I did the sensible thing and moved to the beach.  It's still cold here in the winter, and we do have all four seasons, but the winters aren't nearly as extreme as they are in the awesome place I grew up.  Why am I telling you all of this, you ask?  Well, I wanted to give you a little history of my crazy skin before I begin telling you all about a new lotion that I have tried.  I am by no means a skin expert, but I DO know dry, itchy, winter skin; mostly because I live in it.

Influenster sent me an awesome box a couple weeks ago, full of amazing things for me to try. I posted a very quick overview of what I received and my initial thoughts, but now I want to take the time and do the job properly and tell you exactly what I think, after several uses.

In my Sugar & Spice VoxBox, I received a bottle of Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer- a lightly scented lotion with a continuous spray nozzle.

Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer lotion, 6.5 oz bottle

I've used this type of spray bottle before- sunscreen is my BFF, and the gentle mist is the best for my family, to protect us from the sun- especially on a sandy beach.  When I saw the bottle I was all excited, and said to myself, hey, that's a neat idea for lotion!

My girls and I have used the lotion several times now: all you do is slide the spray head to line up with the hole, press the top, and a continuous spray of lotion comes out!  This is perfect for my kids- just a quick spray, and then a quick massage-in, and they are good to go!  Even my 3 year old can spray the lotion on and then rub it in (she's quite the independent one!), and the lotion is very lightly scented.

I love this lotion for ME as well; just a quick spritz and I am good to go after my shower, and when winter itch gets the best of me, I can just spray quickly on, and the NON GREASY formula is awesome and absorbs right in, banishing my dry skin for a respectable amount of time. I know many of us keep searching for the "perfect" lotion, and this one here is pretty close!

If you would like to try this for yourself, head over to your local Walmart- this lotion is reasonably priced at around $5.94.

I took a Vine video of my oldest using the lotion, and while I can't figure out how to post the video here, I DO have a  link for you, if you would like to see it :)  Vaseline Spray & Go in Action

Well, that's it for my thoughts on the Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer: I give it a final grade of 5/5: awesome price, not greasy, easy to use, and doesn't trigger my allergies- what more could I possibly ask for?!  I hope all you lovely average people are having an above average day!  See you all next time!

  1. Another great blog. I am gonna have to try this, as most of the time I can't get my hand to get the bottles open on anything anymore. So I am gonna try. The way it sprayed didn't look like it was leaving a mess or residue on anything.. Perfect! It's so nice seeing the kids involved also in blog/video. :D]

    1. I really like this lotion, and I do think that you would be able to sue it easily. Once you slide the nozzle to line up with the sprayer, it can stay there, and you are all set, just press, spray, and go! The lotion was non-greasy, and we use it all the time here. Glad you enjoyed seeing the kids in the video; she had fun making it!


Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and visit! I read all the comments and try to reply to everyone. It's the least I could do- it's very...Average.
