Vaseline is my HG eye makeup remover - you're throwing your money away if you buy anything else. Really. It gets everything right off. I've been using it since I first started wearing eye makeup to get rid of "panda eyes." It also works a charm on removing long-wearing lipstick. For chapped lips, it works better than any lip balm. Don't listen to people who say Vaseline is dangerous because it's made from petroleum - petroleum is an all-natural substance. There are probably chemicals in your shampoo that are worse for you. If you believe everything you read about everyday products causing cancer, you might as well just lock yourself in your room and never go out.
I use vaseline when i apply self tanner; for the price and results, it works very well. i use it on my hands, heels and elbows mainly, areas notorious for absorbing too much color. i shower, exfoliate, apply where needed, then apply the st. when i wake up i don't have any dry, areas that are too dark in comparison to the rest of me.
i don't like vaseline for lips because of the scent.
i neglected to say i really like the one in the small green tin best. i can use this one on my lips, and also on my hands as it smells good and has better spreadability
I have used this for over 35 years to remove eye makeup. I've occasionally tried products specifically to remove eye makeup....but NOTHING compares to Vaseline. I started using it in high school. Dirt cheap and it works! Conditions my eyelashes at the same time. I have no wrinkles around my eyes and contribute some of that to Vaseline. A tub lasts for several years. I can't imagine using anything else when this is so cheap and effective. I still have full, thick eyelashes, which I know is partly genetic, but I'm noticing hair in general can get sparse as we get older. My lashes look fabulous still!
This stuff is great for removing eyemakup, softening lips and elbows, rubbing into cuticles , whatever.
i always have a big jar of vaseline handy,it has been a staple in our house since ever,my uses for vaseline are:
1.my mom and my sister and i use it for our feet on a regular basis.my sister and i put our feet in hot water,scrub whatever rough skin there then cover our entire feet with vaseline and wear old socks.in the morning wash your foor with warm water and your feet are smooth as silk.as a matter of fact i am wearing the socks over my vaseline-covered foot,i'm kind of having a 1 week beauty program for my feet before we start to wear open slippers and sandals.it definitely worth it.
2.i use it as a lip balm.i take medium-strength tooth brush,pass it over hot water,brush my lips with it,put a layer of vaseline over it and u will have beautiful, flake-free lips.
3.i mix it with few drops of lemon juice and put it on my dry elbows.
4.i put it on my cuticles.
5.i read in the review here that some of u are using it as an eye cream for the night, so i began to try this out. i put a small amount of vaseline around the entire eye area,upper and lower lids and the brow too(cause i have this ugly problem of flakes above and in between the eyebrows)then i put my regular eye cream(nivea anti-wrinkle q10 eye cream), i began to see results(may be i'm halusinating)the area is kind of dewy and bright so i'm holding my thumbs up for this one and i'll update.
i only have one question:will it give me milia if i continue to use it in my eye area?
One of the most versatile skincare I own. I use it as a lip balm everyday. When my elbow is dry, i dab some on at night and they're great in the morning. I also use it as a cuticle moisturizer.
I've mixed vaseline with MAC pigments to make lip glosses as well. LOVE this product. I wish it came in a more sanitary packaging though.
I just have to put my two cents in: maybe i can be a little slow on the uptake, but it took me until my mid-twenties to connect that "petroleum jelly" was made out of.......petroleum. As in "oil" (duh). It was a few more years before I read that using petroleum based products on the skin (which absorbs most of what you put on it) is a bad idea, and might be linked to all kinds of health problems (but who is going to fund those studies to find out?) Basically, I wouldn't take a bath in gasoline or heating oil, so I try to avoid products that have petroleum oil as their base. There are at TON of vegetable based oils out there that work just as well or better, especially almond and jojoba.
Love everything vaseline, it makes my skin very soft and healthy
Vaseline is part of my nightly routine. I rub it all over my face and eyes to remove my makeup - take a VERY hot washcloth and wipe it off - then use my regular cleanser and treatments. It's the only thing that is non-irritating that removes all of my eye makeup.
the only thing that vaseline has worked on for me is lips. i've tried using it on my body and on my face, but for the body it did nothing, and it only irritated my face - it looked all blotchy, like it's about to break out. had no moisturizing effects at all - just sat there and my skin is actually dry, so that was very unusual for me. i think it would work on someone who has moderately balanced skin and doesn't need anything special, which i unfortunately do. i did find it to be wonderful for lips - i use the formula with vitamin E in it, and my lips totally plump up as result and look so sexy and natural that i hardly ever wear any lip color at all. besides the plumping effect it also leaves the lips very well moisturized. i find that the vaseline you buy specifically for lips actually works much worse than the regular vaseline from a jar. i wonder why that is?
