I feel better using this, than traditional petroleum jelly. Natural, and less chemicals. Works just as well or better, and I have confidence the natural ingredients are better for my body. I have it from iherb dot com, they ship worldwide, this was $4.79 for 100g. If you want order the first time, VIK284 and you have 5$ off.

Got to give this a 5 -- so much like petroleum jelly in consistency yet it's not a petroleum bi-product -- instead it has healthy ingredients!
Good to know about this, especially if you use anything in sensitive areas. Ever look at the ingredients in KY jelly, for instance?

Awesome product! I switched to his after I became allergic to aquaphor. This is so much better than aquaphor since it does not contain petroleum. I put this under my eyes every night and on areas where there are fine lines as well as healing acne spots. Very healing and gentle on the skin : )

Wonderful multi-use ointment. I use it on my hands, dry patches of skin on my body, my lips and sometimes on my eyelashes. I also use this on my face when it gets very dry and sensititve. I use it sparingly on a damp face and pat it in. I don't use it on any active pimples. I find it does a good job of protecting and moisturizing my skin. It does have a slight castor oil smell to it but it's not bothersome enough for me to stop using it.

I grew up loving Vaseline but due to what it is made with (petroleum), I will no longer purchase it.
Alba Un-petroleum Multi-Purpose Jelly is a great alternative since it soothes, moisturizes and softens. It's made with beeswax, castor oil, coconut oil, and vitamin-e...it's amazing.
It does cost more (when compared to Vaseline) but so worth it...and if you are a DIY-er it's really easy to mix up your own batch of it, which makes it even more cost-efficient.
I also really appreciate how this product comes in a tube, so that it is never contaminated.
I use this on my face as a deep moisture mask for nighttime, for moisturizing my sons eczema prone skin and any other reasons I can think of, I love this product!!
I just wish they would make it available in a larger size vs the 3.5 oz.

Great, inexpensive multipurpose ointment I use daily on my hands and lips and on my combination-dry face as a night time moisture boost in the winter. Slightly greasier and does not absorb as quickly as Aquaphor but the moisturizing quality is just as effective. At night I use a dime size blob for my hands before bed and pat whatever is left on my face, on top of my nighttime moisturizers (Renova and Shiseido night cream) in the winter. It really seals in the other products and I awake with soft hydrated skin. Very satisfied with this $6 product!

Love this stuff! I'm a fan of the organics when it comes to facial products and this stuff is great. It's really thick and I love putting it on my lips at night and around my eye area - I wake up with hydrated lips and eyes! Vaseline probably does the same thing but I just don't like the idea of putting petroleum jelly on my face even though my pharmacist friends claim there's no difference.

My skin really likes castor and coconut oils, so for me this is perfect. Even though it's more expensive, I prefer this to Vaseline for several reasons. I prefer the texture, it's less sticky and it softens my skin, whereas Vaseline seems to just sit on my skin. I also like that it's slightly less thick than petroleum jelly, and easier to spread.
I use this primarily to remove my mascara and to condition my lashes and brows. It's also great on dry and chapped skin (lips, elbows, knees, ankles, eye area). Great multipurpose product for those who don't like petrolatum.

Well, i prefer old Vaseline over this.I bought this after seeing being hyped by youtube guru KandeeJohnson. It just kinda 'sit' on my skin, and the next morning my skin did feel soft, but then I got the similar result with vaseline and i guess vaseline is much easier to spread.

This is a wonderful natural product that can be used in such a variety of ways! I used to be a die hard fan of Aquaphor until I tried this natural alternative that actually benefits AND protects the skin. First if I had children I would definately use this prduct instead of petroleum based products... but I don't. SO I love using this as a lip treatment most nights. I also use it once or twice a week as an eye, face, or neck treatment, depending on how my skin is acting. Remember to use oh so sparingly though! Sometimes I even warm up a small amount in my hands and apply it to the ends of my hair overnight. It contains coconut oil known to penetrate the hair shaft extremely well, working as a deep conditioning treatment. (I always tie my hair up and only do this when I wash my hair the next morning) My boyfriend uses this on his nasty cracked feet as well, considering that he has used it more than once means it must work. Really, the list goes on! The only thing I would not do is wear it under makeup (obviously) or during the day on my face. SHINE central! I have somewhat acne prone skin and it has never reacted badly to this, but the first couple times I used it I was worried beacause it felt like it would lead to clogged pores. It doesn't, it sinks into the skin by the time I wake up leaving it plump and soft. *I do not applly this where I have active breakouts*

This product is an excellent makeup remover. I like that it doesn't smell like anything. This seems more sticky than Vaseline but I prefer it for moisturizing my tired eyes at night. I also like that this never makes me breakout.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Medium, Warm Hair: Brown, Straight, Fine Eyes: Brown
It's an inexpensive, pure and natural thick moisturizer. I use it at night on my lips and (very sparingly) on any dry patches of skin and I wake up with moisturized soft lips and skin. I would definitely recommend this product as an alternative to Vaseline.

Tried using petroluem jelly for an eye moisturizer and on my lips at night...started breaking out. I've been using Alba Un-petroleum for the last couple weeks and no breakouts. It's annoying to have greasy eyes at night, but I really do like the moisturization it gives me. Will purchase again.

Now this is a steal!!! I got this @ Whole Foods for $3.99 I think - omg it's amazing! I use to only use this @ night only but then I started using it in the morning too & I started getting so many complements on my skin! I have a tendency to over-use products lol & by that I mean to use too much but I've learned that a lil is waaaaaaaay better than looking like u can fry eggs on your face lol! I got this for all my family & friends!!! A+++++++++++++++

this DOESN'T make me break out. I love it. Yes it does give you a greasy shiny face for your boyfriend at night but you wake up to super soft skin! I have used it every night for about 2 weeks. I do feel that it smooths out my wrinkles around my eyes, and oddly reduces my pore size around my cheeks. I love it, I will continue to use it because I feel it really hydrates my skin, and who doesn't love hydrated skin! This also has made my skin less oily throughout the day? (I do not use this during the day). I wash my face, apply my cerave lotion and then this. I slather it around my eyes, and kind of pat it all over the rest of my face. a little goes a long way! I don't need much to cover my face. Any way I can't tale all the credit for such awesome tips and tricks! Thanks to Kandee Johnson (make-up artist)

Love this. It's free of mineral oil and actually helps soothe and moisturize the skin instead of creating a barrier, like MO does. I use a heft coating of this applied like lip balm before bed. By the morning the ingredients, (oils) have absorbed into my lips and theyre fresh and soft to start the day. Lovely. it's not that expensive either. less than aquaphor. Try it !

Great all natural alternative to vaseline!!Great stuff for lips, cuticles, feet and other dry spots if you are looking for a natural alternative for Vaseline without the petrolatum. I rub it on my feet at night and sleep with socks on. It made the area under my eyes plumper and great for my hands and elbows. I use this on my lashes and brows also. I do not use this on my face nor would I use vaseline on my face. I use it for everything else. The consistency is a bit thinner than petroleum jelly, which I like. A little goes a long way so I have had this for a while. I wish it that it came in a small travel size, and a lip gloss! My 10 yr old has psoriasis and I only use natural products on his skin,not the steroids and medicine that lowers your immune system ect.His skin looks better then people that are on those harsh medications so I ended up finding another use for it
Ingredients: Ricinus communis (castor) seed oil, cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, beeswax, hydrogenated castor oil, tocopheryl acetate and tocopherol (Vitamin E).
Made without petrolatum, paraffin, mineral oil, artificial fragrances or parabens.
No animal testing.

This is a great product! I put it on before I go to bed along with some vitamin e oil and my skin looks flawless the next morning. I had been using the Paula's Choice Skin Recovery Mask, which is great, but this gives me better results for a third of the price. I will definitely be repurchasing.

This is an absolutely amazing product. You have to use it with a bit of precautionary warning.... yes, it is thick, oily, and quite frankly lays on the skin without much of it sinking in... However, if you cleanse your skin, apply this at night, let it sink in... you will notice your pores are smaller, your skin is supple, your face is noticeably clearer.
For reference, I am fair to warm skinned, oily/combination skin, and I am prone to breakouts. This does not irritate my skin at all, and in fact, retains the original moisture of my skin and does not interfere with it... It almost feels as though I am not wearing any kind of moisturizer at all in the morning, just like my normal skin but clearer, healthier, brighter...
In addition!! Alba UnPetro is amazing for your feet, elbows, lips, and the under eyes...especially during the day, if you want your eyes to feel totally lifted and moisturized. It's made from natural ingredients and will not clog your pores - just make sure you apply it to a totally clean face, no make-up residue at all, and you will be good.
I find that a main problem with people breaking out, and what might seem like "random" acne, it stems from improper makeup removal - you need to remove products from your face & neck completely - and sleeping on pillows that are loaded with grease and dirt and grime... not good :( .... I had terrible acne scars because I am fair skinned, but I also never realized what was causing RECURRENT acne... Once i stopped routinely breaking out, and I started using un-petro jelly, I noticed my face becoming cleaner & brighter... while eliminating previous acne scars.. As a little side note, please take my advice if you have skin like mine... and wash your sheets & pillow cases at LEAST once a week, if not two to three times....believe me, you will notice a change in your complexion.
