Since becoming a mum 19 months ago every aspect of my life has changed and my beauty regime is one of the parts that has changed massively!
Gone is the luxury of lazy mornings pampering and preening myself; indulging in long manicures, perfecting my brows and creating the most fabulous contour and highlighting looks.
Now, speed and ease of use are the two key things I look for in a beauty product. I’m always against the clock (well actually, against a 19 month olds ability to keep themselves entertained while I get dressed and make myself somewhat presentable!) so things have certainly changed.
One thing that hasn’t is the need to moisturise daily, thanks to my super dry eczema prone skin but there’s nothing worse than slathering a body lotion on, only to hear your son’s patience wane and realise you’re going to have to slide into your jeans while you’re still sticky and wet. Not good.
My answer? Vaseline Intensive Care Spray Moisturiser. I’ve been using the Cocoa Radiant variant for some time and loved it and they have now reformulated the spray to include micro-droplets of healing Vaseline Petroleum Jelly.
I was given the opportunity to try out the other items in the collection as well as a few essentials to help speed up your morning beauty regime and boy has it helped, and boy was it needed!
The Vaseline Intensive Care Spray Moisturiser line comprises of my favourite, the cocoa scented Cocoa Radiant, the original scented Essential Healing and a fresh, Aloe scented Aloe Soothe. And yes, if you hadn’t noticed already, they come in an aerosol spray. Most uncommon for a moisturiser huh!
Well, its inspired really, the lotion is dispensed in an even, continuous spray allowing you to apply it directly to the areas that need it quickly and fuss free.
All three lotions are super lightweight and are absorbed almost instantly leaving no trace, which means no more slipping and sliding into your clothes before your moisturiser has dried.
I was sceptical as to whether it would be nourishing enough for my dry skin but I have to say I was impressed. Sure, problem areas like my knees and elbows could do with a little extra help but the rest of my skin was left feeling soft and supple for hours.
So, moisturiser applied in super quick time means I’ve managed to claw back some super precious time and was able to indulge in some other quick beauty pick-me-ups thanks to the generous Vaseline team!
My nails are bare and boring no more thanks to Barry M’s Speedy Quick Dry Nail Paint and gone are my red, tired eyes (along my lash line) thanks to a quick swipe of Rimmel’s Nude Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal pencil.
I NEVER have time to wash and blowdry my hair in the mornings but this doesn’t matter now with a BaByliss Teasing Brush to detangle my mane and a quick spritz of some Tresemme Instant Refresh Dry Shampoo.
I don’t have time to mess about with my makeup but thanks to NARS The Mutiple in Orgasm which can be used on your cheeks, lips and eyes, I can now leave the house looking more manicured, healthy and all in a super short period of time.
Vaseline you’ve nailed it, thank you!
