First, the vaseline brand of cocoa butter products is the best. The smell and how it moisturizes is awesome. I was very skeptical of the spray vs pump lotion. But I saw ad in magazine that it won award for best new product. I went to CVS, got a bottle and never looking back. I will say, it is sometimes nice to just have the pump when putting on lotion. Reguardless, of pump or spray, I use cocoa.
