I just love vaseline. Whenever I have a skin issue this always fixes it in no time! It cures damaged/wounded skin better than anything else. If I have a wound this is the best for healing it. When I was in the hospital after an accident, they also only put vaseline on my wounds and they healed very fast.
I also find it very moisturizing. It works wonders on dry feet, elbows & hands. But I even like it for my face. My skin is very clog prone and this does not clog my pores actually (shocking, I know). It's one of the few things I can use on my face that doesn't clog me! It's way too shiny to use during the day, but I like to use a very thin layer at night when my (oily) skin is feeling tight. I especially love it if I put a hyaluronic acid on my skin first and then seal it in with the vaseline. I buy the version in the tube for hygiene.
The best of it all, it's dirt cheap! I am never without this.
Having been employed by a fantastic natural body product company, and subscribing myself to a largely natural approach to body care, the big ol' hippie in me is sad to be admitting Vaseline is one of the best things a sensitive Northern girl could ask for for dry hands, lips and especially, feet. Dirt cheap. Unscented. Protection!!
I have tried all manner of balms, butters, raw shea and cocoa butters, nut and seed oils, beeswax based lotions and potions and nothing has helped my disgustingly dry (in spite of constant care!) feet and hands like good ol', petrochemical Vaseline. My mum was right- this stuff is the best. Make no mistake, though- this is not ADDING moisture to your skin, this is SEALING YOUR SKIN'S MOISTURE IN. For me and my home climate, this is far more important.
I use very little, and massage ONLY into the dry spots on my body. When it hits -40C in the winter, this goes on my hands, lips and around my nose before leaving the house. And my feet...Oh the amazing change! Most other heavy duty foot products feel great initially, but generally wear off by lunch. My feet are actually SMOOTH at the end of the day! DH doesn't get his legs scratched by sandpaper heels at bedtime!
I have a big tub at home, but prefer to buy the smaller squeeze tubes, which are great bedside or purse size. Not as much chance for potential product contamination. I do wish they would make a BIG squeeze tube though!
One lippie off ONLY due to using a petroleum byproduct on my body (in VERY SMALL AMOUNTS, but still! Potential carcinogenic contamination? Yeeesh.), not due to its functionality. Which rules.
i use this on sparse spots on my eyebrows, and it really helped the hair grow back faster! i also use a little bit of vaseline and apply it like mascara before i go to sleep because i feel like i have less fallout, and my lashes got longer since i started doing this! i feel like vaseline is perfect after exfoliating your lips, and well pretty much everywhere. i dont think you should use vaseline during the day because it can cause burns easily from the sun, but as a night moisturizer this is the most affortable and best product!
tips:i like using this as a cuticle softner when i dont plan to wear nail polish. apply at night ofcourse! hope you try it :)
I don't use this as a lipbalm, I found EOS works better, but use it on my face in the winter, sometimes a little under my foundation if it's too hot for primer, and on my elbows and legs. I really love this for my legs, because I have extremely sensitive skin, and get razor burn very easily, and most lotions irritate my skin if I use them after shaving, but this doesn't.
I've only just discovered Vaseline after my cat scratched my face( haha) and I read online that it's great for healing wounds fast. The night before my wound looked awful and I thought it would take a few days to disappear but the next day it was gone! Unbelievable!
Lots of uses with this! I use it on my lips when dry, or to gel down my eyebrows. Recently used it around my hair line when dyeing my hair and I didn't get any paint on my skin!
I have very dry scaly skin on my face. During winter, spring summer and fall it never fails I just have very dry skin. Foundations tend to look very cakey on me for this reason. I have tried $150 moisturizers looking for something that would miraculously leave me with soft supple and smooth skin. Desperate I began looking on there for help and when I scanned the reviews for moisturizers I came across Vaseline. I had heard of using Vaseline before and had read that Marilyn Monroe's makeup artist would apply a layer of Vaseline all over her face before doing her makeup. Figuring I have absolutely nothing to lose I removed my cakey looking foundation and applied a thin layer of Vaseline all over my face making sure to really work it in to the very dry areas of my face. I waited for about 15 minutes then went to work applying a new layer of foundation on my face. When I was completed I stared at my skin in amazement. I saw NO DRYNESS on my face. None. Nada. Zilch. I admit I have not fully had a chance to see how my skin reacts or how long the affect will last however for now I am stunned at how great my skin looks. I am glowing! Not oil skin glowing but dewy and fresh. I will update later on how my skin reacts and how long the moisturizing benefits last on my face. I am so hoping I have finally found my miracle ointment!!!
Its an alright product to use before you go to bed, its really moisturizing and it helps clear chapped lips. I get reallly dry red lips over the winter and this treats it really well, it doesn't have a smell, the only down side is the thick greasy texture.
Meh, It Has Its uses, but as a bauty aid i dont like it , it's just to greasy i dont like the texture of it. and doesnt absorbe well not even as a lip balm.
I feel sick thinking of this product, or using it.. my boyfriend cannot live without the lipbalms from vaseline but I just feel it doesnt moisturise anything.. rather it covers up..doesnt work anything for me at all sorry
