Do You VASELINE? 10 Real Reasons You Need this Stuff in Your Life

Vaseline?! you ask … VASELINE I reply, nodding my head oh so very sagely. And now I'm going to tell you WHY it is one of the best, most versatile products with exceptional properties, out there.

Very succinctly, it

  • Locks moisture into dry and damaged skin, and speeds up skin’s natural recovery process, helping it to heal from within;
  • Reduces the appearance of fine, dry lines, and protect your skin and lips against dryness and chapping;
  • Is triple purified, non-irritating and hypo-allergenic, making it entirely safe for the whole family to use; and
  • Tests conducted by experts from the Journal of Cosmetic Science verify that Vaseline is non-comedogenic which means that it does not clog pores, irritate skin, or cause acne.

That was a snapshot of some of Vaseline’s life-enhancing properties. Keep reading for some truly genius reasons you need it in your everyday life.

Eye Makeup Remover 
Vaseline gently removes eyeliner, mascara, shadow and even any eyelash glue that your falsies leave behind. 

2. Smooth Cracked Heels 
Smooth Vaseline into dry cracked heels or elbows, slip on a pair of socks, go to sleep and wake up to healthy, hydrated skin.

3. Highlighter
Swap your highlighter for Vaseline. Dab a small amount on the high points of your face for a dewy, naturally luminous glow and you’re good to go.

4. No-Mess Manicure
Apply Vaseline to your cuticles before polishing your nails to keep colour off of the skin around your nails. You’ll get a perfect manicure—minus the clean-up.

5. Face Cream
Run out of moisturiser? Smooth a tiny amount of Vaseline onto your fingertips and use to moisturise your face. Vaseline is non-comedogenic and won’t clog pores or cause a breakout.

6. Smooth Hair
Use Vaseline to tame frizz and seal dry split ends and even to keep unruly eyebrows in place.

7. DIY Scrub
Dry lips? Add a bit of sugar to your Vaseline to make your own lip scrub. Or mix it with sea salt, and use the mixture in the shower as a body scrub with moisturising benefits.

8. From Powder to Cream
Transform your loose eye shadows/ blushers and bronzers into cream formulas by mixing them with Vaseline. You can also make a tinted lip balm this way.

9. Cuticle Cream
Use a bead of Vaseline and massage into your scraggly cuticles to soften and soothe them.

10. Prevent Hair dye Stain
Dab Vaseline along your hairline, onto your ears and the back of your neck to prevent hair dye from staining your skin.

Just for the record, I've not been sponsored by Vaseline ... I just really like the stuff :)
