Feels gross! Sweats right off! Sticks to your clothes!

Sigh.

"I was swimming daily for a year in a heated therapy pool for 45 minutes every day before work. I only had 30 minutes to get dressed and drive to work. I found the chlorine and heated water was stripping the oil from my already dry winter skin. I discovered Vaseline's Intensive spray-on from the chemist.

"Brilliant product. I would lightly towel dry, spray it on my legs and arms and it would soak in immediately, so I could get dressed right away. It's so cheap and very convenient. The cap rotates to allow the spray, so it wouldn’t open up and squidge all over the inside of the bag." - Denise.

Nivea Body Nourishing Lotion, $7.99.
