I have a confession: I'm ashy. I know! I know! I'm so embarrassed about this!
But it's true. I take the time to make sure my girl's needs are taken care of and that she has everything she needs. But inevitably, I'm out of time and end up running out of the door only to later discover (usually while I'm in front of someone) that I am, in fact, ashy. It's usually my legs and let me tell you, it ain't pretty. You might think that because I'm light skinned it wouldn't be seen as much. OhÂ contraire mon frÃ¨re. I end up looking like I have some sort of shedding disease. I mean really, the only thing that comes to mind is a snake! I'm slightly mortified but it has happened more often than I care to recount.
When I saw thisÂ VaselineÂ commercial, I thought it might help me with my time deficiency ashi-itis:
?(time deficiency ashi-itis is common in mamis. It is the walking around with very dry skin because of lack of time to take care of such things)
I was still skeptical, though. So I took theÂ VaselineÂ Spray & GoÂ Moisturizer Challenge. First of all, can I just tell you Vaseline is not what I remembered? That's the first thing. Second thing: I realized that apparently, I'd lost my ability to know how to work a stopwatch. And not the stopwatch on your smartphones, people. An honest to goodness stopwatch. It took me like 12 minutes just to figure out how to work the buttons. But, I digress.
I timed myself using the Spray & Go and then I timed myself using lotion. There was a slight...um...situation when I did the lotion because I was about a minute and 30 seconds into it when I grabbed the stopwatch and it slipped out of my hands because they were slippery with lotion. The stopwatch may or may not have landed in the toilet. So, let's just leave it at that. I'm grateful I did the Spray & Go experiment first. I clocked in at an astoundingÂ 23:40!Â
Which means I get to not be ashy from now on. I liked that it's a continuous spray that not only moisturizes but absorbs in seconds. It felt like magic. You ever lotion yourself up and then go to put on your jeans only to realize your jeans are sticking to you? I didn't have that problem with this moisturizer. Which meant that if I left my clothes ready in the morning (this isÂ BIGÂ for me in saving time), I could be moisturized and dressed in about the same time it used to take me to put on lotion.
Preparing the night before is definitely a big one for making sure I'm saving time and getting out of the door on time most mornings. And making sure my skin is soft and well-cared for is one thing on my list of "things to do to take care of me".
