This Drugstore Body Mist Is Perfect For Soft, Hydrated Winter Skin


Body care in fall is an interesting dilemma; your tan is fading, and the cooler temperatures are beginning to dry out your skin, yet it’s not knitwear season. Therefore, you’re likely to be making the most of cute skirts and crop top season and want your skin to be as soft and smooth as possible. But don’t stress as we have the ultimate solution… and it comes in a bottle! Again, don’t worry, it’s budget-friendly – we also blew our budget on that last summer vacation. #SorryNotSorry.

We actually discovered this product on TikTok, and it’s being touted as THE product for body slugging as it’s hella hydrating but not heavy or greasy. Here’s everything you need to know:

What it is: The Aquaphor Healing Ointment Body Spray, $12, is a water-free mist formulated with the ultimate skin protectant, petroleum, as well as glycerin, lanolin, ProVitamin B5, and bisabolol to hydrate and nourish dry skin. It has a continuous spray for easy application. Plus, it’s hypoallergenic, preservative-free, and fragrance-free.

What it does: This innovative spray instantly relieves dry, rough skin leaving it feeling soft with a radiant, healthy glow. Thanks to the combination of glycerin and lanolin, it locks in moisture while simultaneously preventing future moisture loss. It’s basically a tall glass of water for your skin.

What we liked: What’s not to love about an easy-to-use, super restorative body lotion that doesn’t leave your skin feeling greasy but perfectly smooth? Not to mention, it’s affordable and perfect for our new skincare obsession: slugging, AKA when you slather your body in petroleum jelly for glazed donut skin by morning. As it’s a spray, you can also apply it to your entire body without turning into a human pretzel. Super importantly, it can also be used and enjoyed by all skin types, and it doesn’t irritate your skin post-shave. Just spritz it onto your skin once you step out of the shower, then wait for it to absorb fully before getting your beauty zzzzzs. Honestly, guys, don’t sleep on this mist – sleep in it!

What we didn’t like: Okay, if we had to be REALLY picky, you do have to wait a couple of minutes for it to be fully absorbed, but that’s a small price to pay for well-moisturized skin. As Stormi once said, “Patience, patience…”

The bottom line: This body mist just became our new drugstore staple. Hello soft, winter skin.
