I don't think my lips would ever survive without this product! I have so many floating around my bags and house, I always have one in my pocket at work, always one in my makeupbag and ALWAYS one in my handbag. I can never be without it! Although the packaging is relatively simple, it works so well. Cocoa butter one is my new favourite but i would use any of them really!

This beauty staple material. A must have. A real multitasker! You can use it to remove stubborn eye makeup without tugging on sensitive eyes. Works like a dream on rough elbows and heels. Put on at night add socks and feet are smooth on the morning. Great lip gloss over product or to mix and sheer out a product. I have even mixed it with pigmented eye color to make a creamy color. Holds brows in place, great eye cream for night, great lip tx, cuticle cream and even tames frizzy hair in a pinch. I also use it as a skin protectant for my baby. The new mini is great for your purse! Dirt cheap with hundreds of uses.

I just recently discovered the awesomeness of this product. My skin dried out horribly this winter (I normally have combination skin) and I have used Vaseline at night in combination with Cetaphil moisturizing cream and Lanette cream to successfully cure it. I wash my face with a mild cleanser, pat it dry with a towel, and immediately put on a layer of Lanette cream, a layer of Cetaphil and then add Vaseline to the really dry parts (cheeks + area around my nose and mouth). It doesn't cause me any breakouts.
A word of caution: it's _very_ important to clean your skin at least once a day with a mild cleanser even if you have dried out skin or you will break out. Not because of the Vaseline but because of all the dead skin cells clogging your pores.

This is fantastic as an eye make up remover, it's incredibly effective at removing every trace of make up plus it's super gentle to the eye area. It will gently and effectively loosen and remove even the heaviest eye make up, including waterproof products. It's smooth to use on the eye area, so there's minimal tugging or movement on the delicate skin.
I usually wash my face, then once that's rinsed, I massage a small amount of Vaseline onto my eyelids to loosen my eye colour, and gently rub some across my lashes in a horizontal motion to remove mascara and liner. I then remove it with a warm damp washcloth or warm damp tissue. Seldom do I have to do any more than that, as it usually removes the lot the first time, unless I'm wearing very heavy make up. I much prefer this over liquid eye make up removers as I don't have to rub or tug at the skin, it just melts away on touch. A plus side is that it conditions lashes and keeps them looking full and soft.
The only reason it loses points in the packaging, I don't like the tub style, as it's easily contaminated, especially if you use it on any other areas. It's worth decanting a small amount for each purpose if you plan on using it for multiple uses, or if you buy multiple jars, make sure you label the jar for each purpose.

I recently develops cheilitis and my lips are very sore and irritated. I have tried many expensive brands' lip treatments but they just seem to exacerbate the soreness and irritation. My lips looked like a pair of hot red sausage! So after some researches, I decided to give this product a try. It has a white jelly-like texture with no smell or what-so-ever. I used a cotton tip to apply it on my lips and absolutely no irritation or any burning sensation, and i noticed the redness has calmed down a little bit. My lips are no longer dry and tight.
I can finally smile with my great teeth!

Only giving this 4 cause I kind of feel bad using it (doctors yell at you for it, it can clog pores, etc). But it works! But it's cheap! But it travels beautifully (especially the new mini size)! Nothing else takes off my Nars black liner. Massage a small dab then tissue off.

My lips chap like absolute crazy, so wearing lipsticks, lipstains or lipliner is a horrible experience, it's deterred me from buying lip products because they all seem to make my chapped lips look worse.
I've used many different types of lipbalms but none seem to work as well.
So one day I was playing around with my makeup to find a cure to the dry lips when I found a small tub of Vaseline my cousin left behind after his stay, I decided to try some and holy god, the results were amazing!! My lips were so so so smooth and lipsticks apply like a dream! I immediately went out to buy my own tub as the tub was basically empty, and the price.???? £1.99!!! Mind you it was in a pharmacy so it costed a bit more than they do in drugstores but I don't care!!! ! It is amazing and I carry it with me everywhere now. But when I travel I may depot it into a smaller container for convenience.
EDIT/AFTER 3 WEEKS USE- still smooths lips but not as much as it used to, I put a heavy/thick layer on lips before bed so they stay hydrated. It's also good to apply on lashes to condition.

My lips depend on vaseline. I apply it every night just before going to bed and then next morning they are always soft. Even if my lips are cracked they are better by the next day. I also have a separate tub for my feet. Before jumping into bed I smoother my feet with it then put on socks and by the next morning they are soft! Vaseline is a must have in my house, you can find tubs of it in every room!

This is a good multi-purpose product. No only do I use it for sore lips, cuts and rough hands (as indicated on the back of package) I also recently started to use it on my eyebrows and eyelashes to help them grow. Before I go to bed I massage a pea sized amount onto my eye brows and my top and bottom lashes. Heaps of people claim this works. This product is very affordable, also their are more uses to it such as removing eye makeup etc. I would definitely recommend this product! xo

-This is a review for Vaseline as an eye makeup remover.-
Vaseline for eye makeup remover?! I couldn't believe it. I spend a lot of money on eye makeup remover each month since I put on a lot of eye makeup (dark smokey eyes daily, thick gel liners, waterproof mascaras...) Believe me, the $$ adds up REALLY quickly... Muaers have often led me to cheap at home alts that work better than stuff you buy at the store, so I had high hopes for Vaseline as makeup remover. I got out my little huge tub of vaseline and started dabbing some on my eyes... I was horrified. Yes, it "removes" makeup in the sense that it will absorb the pigments and detach them from your eyelids... BUT... the now horrendously muddy black mix of vaseline and your eye makeup will NOT get off your eyes! I tried using dry cotton pads, wet cotton pads, cotton balls, water, etc. and in the end I had to use my regular eye makeup remover to remove the vaseline from my eyes. I ended up using twice the amount of eye makeup remover I usually use, just to remove the horrible black oily sticky mess around my eyes. I tried using vaseline as an eye makeup remover a few more times after that just hoping that it was somehow user error and that soon I'd find a magically cheap alternative to store makeup removers... NO. Every time no matter what I try differently, Vaseline on my eyes just makes a huge, gunky, sticky, oily muddy black mess that gets everywhere (including IN MY EYES! think a grey film over your whites .. very reminiscent of horror movies)
It might work for you if you use very little eye makeup. But I will stick to my regular eye makeup remover.
I put 'would buy again' because I still love Vaseline, esp for chapped lips :)

I use Vaseline for EVERYTHING! I use at night to take off makeup, use it around my eyes to prevent wrinkles, on my lips, on my dry skin, to condition my eyelashes and to help my eyebrows grow out thicker when I get too tweezer happy. I even use Vaseline to wash my face. It sounds gross, but I smear a thin coat on my face in the morning and at night and just rub it in. Then wash it off with a warm, wet washcloth. My skin is clean, clear and glows because of it. I never break out when I use this and I look like I'm about 20 (I'm 32). Will always buy this!

I have been using Vaseline as an eye makeup remover for many years. It is simply the best and cheapest eye makeup remover out there. I buy the Equate version in the tube at Walmart (in the baby section) for less than two dollars. I also use it for a variety of other things: hand/body/lip treatment, facial moisturizer when I am very dry, night time moisturizing eye treatment, cold cream when I am wearing heavy makeup, cuticle cream, the list goes on.

I have been using Vaseline as an eye makeup remover for nearly 30 years. It's cheap, takes all the makeup off, and is comfortable and not drying to my eye area. Anything else I've tried has been drying and irritating.
Low and behold, I visited the eye doctor yesterday and one of my complaints is dry, itchy eyes. She looks into my eyes and said she saw a lot of debris "floating" around in there (ewww) and asked me specificially what I used to take my eye makeup off with. She said emphatically NOT to use vaseline to remove makeup and pretty much echoed what is said on this website (see link) and that it can cause dry itchy eyes and is not good for the tear glands. She recommended Johnson & Johnson baby shampoo (weird, huh?)

I'm the girl you judge for wearing a shit ton of eye makeup. Yeah, I go overboard with my makeup, I really do. I love to go crazy. And you would think that taking so much makeup off seems like it would be a huge hassle, but not with Vaseline.
Just put a little bit on your lids, take your time to grab some tissues or cotton pads, and swipe off. It'll take some work to get into the nooks and crannies of course, and if you're wearing quite a bit, you might have to apply it more than once, but it really does get the job done better than everything else.
I've tried tons of products to get my makeup off and my mom expressed surprise at my modest collection of makeup remover. She was alarmed because she wasn't even aware that such a thing existed - she just casually mentioned that "women her age" use Vaseline to get makeup off. I kinda wrote her off at first since she's a frugal lady, but wow! It's so funny how the cheapest, most basic things work the best sometimes. And it leaves your lids and lashes so soft and moisturized afterwards!
Why are you reading this review?! If you don't have Vaseline in your house already, what is wrong with you? It's a great eye makeup remover. You can use it to moisturize your lips, your hands, your cuticles, your elbows, your knees, or your feet. It does wonders for severe dryness. It's a miracle product! Use it! It's amazing and cheap!

I've been using vaseline for a long time and seriously, it's the shiz! It's so cheap and there are so many purposes for it, I can use it for my eyelashes to condition them, my lips when they're dry, dry patches on my bodies and so much more!
The only problem I have with this product is the packaging, you have to dip your dirty fingers in the jar to use which is incredibly unhygienic, I wish that there was a pump but considering the consistency of the product, I guess that wouldn't be a logical idea. I like to use a Q-Tip/cotton swab to scoop out a bit then, I'll spread it on my clean finger and apply it to wherever I need it.
Just don't use it on your face - it has mineral oil which can cause acne.

HOW TO USE VASELINE TO REMOVE WATERPROOF MASCARA
So being a teenager, I don't have a lot to spend on makeup, especially if its something to remove it.
I didn't have makeup remover, and my mom bought me waterproof mascara.
I tried olive oil. IT TOOK ME FOREVER (well, you know what I mean) to get all the mascara off. And if blurred my vision. Not cool.
THE BEST WAY TO USE THIS IS TO COAT YOUR LASHES WITH THIS PRODUCT
Seriously. I tried it alone before, and swiped it with a cotton pad and it didn't work.
Then a few days later, I tried it again, but this time I coated the hell out of my lashes (with waterproof mascara underneath of course) and left it there for about 10 minutes or so.
Afterwards, I wet a cotton pad, then slowly wiggled it through my lashes.
Of course it doesn't work as quickly compared to using an eye makeup remover, but it does the trick if you don't want to spend on a bottle every month.
While its soaking, walk around, do stuff. The key is letting it soak onto your lashes and loosen the waterproof mascara.
Its so effective too!
This does wonders for removing eyeshadows as well. Just be mindful that it does leave a thin layer of residue, but it shouldn't be a big deal if you wash your face afterwards anyways.
Super cheap! And a jar will last you for a looooooong time.

Oh my freaking god! I never in a million years would have thought to try using vaseline to remove eye makeup, if it wasn't for MUA. After reading the raves, I still wasn't totally convinced this would work, because I assumed that the users raving about this product used cheap and easy to remove eye makeup. I mean, if they are too cheap to buy high end makeup remover, then they probably don't buy high end long lasting eye makeup. Given that I use Bobbie Brown's long-wear gel eyeliner, which is easily among the top five eyeliners out there, I didn't think vaseline would stand a chance. However, since I knew that I already owned some vaseline, I decided to give it a try. Boy, was I ever wrong! This is actually the best eye makeup remover I have ever used.

This is so great because it can be used for so many different things and it's really cheap! But do not use this as a makeup remover, it does work but the vaseline always gets in your eyes and then your vision gets blurry.

this is the best and cheapest eye makeup remover!! i have dry skin and my eye lids do get dry when i take my makeup off with other removers, but this gets it off the best, quickest, and leaves my lids moisturized. wonderful!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Tan Hair: Black Eyes: Black
I wear a lot of eyeliner, mascara and brown eyeshadow on the brows. THIS REMOVES ALL OF IT! I take a dime sized amount and rub it in circular motion in my closed eye area, then I wipe it off with a cotton pad. It's very inexpensive, very moisturizing and takes forever to finish, literally. The only downside is that, if you do wear a lot of eye makeup, it can be messy. But aside from that, Im going to still use it... Forever and ever!
