This is not a product I will typically go for, but the raving reviews made me curious. I don't like it.- It has a faint garage scent. The smell that you sense when you bring your car for repair;- It feels like a lubricant that used in bearings and other moving parts of machinery to keep them functioning properly and also rust-free;- it doesn't moisturize, it seals whatever is underneath. Don't use it over anything that you know may cause an allergic reaction to your skin;- I've used it on my heels alone (my skin is slightly dry there) and haven't seen any improvement;- it takes forever or should I say - it never absorbs. It's nice to use it over the medicine that healing some cuts/burns, so the damaged skin doesn't stick to the bandage. I would give it 5 star for that purpose but as a beauty product, it's nothing.

I feel like a lot of people here who've complained about Vaseline drying out their skin or causing irritation don't understand the difference between HYDRATING your skin skin and MOISTURIZING your skin. Hydrating ingredients are things like glycerin (in pretty much every moisturizer) and hyaluronic acid (more expensive but also common) that draw water INTO your skin and give it that smooth, plump feel. Vaseline is not that. Vaseline is an occlusive, made to MOISTURIZE, aka keep the moisture in your skin from escaping, and it's damn good at what it does. Petroleum jelly is one of the most occlusive substances available to man, and keeps something like 94% of moisture in the skin as long as it's on.So if you want to use this, you want to HYDRATE first before you put it on. Otherwise all you're doing is slapping a thick, heavy lid on some dry-ass skin. Vaseline can't keep moisture in your skin if it's not even there! Anyway, end rant.I know a lot of people are scared to use this on their face as it is VERY greasy, but trust me--I have the most sensitive, acne-prone skin ever due to a variety of health issues that make my skin very oily. I've had acne ever since I was 13, and am now 27 and still get moderate acne. I've gotten things a bit under control now through medication, but even before then, Vaseline did wonders to calm the inflammation of any existing acne and also just improve/brighten my overall skin tone. I never use this during the daytime, as I can't imagine trying to put foundation on top of this stuff, but I slather it on my face AFTER my hyaluronic acid serums, etc. (very important), and I wake up with baby soft, dewy skin, and any existing acne visibly calmed. When I asked my dermatologist how Vaseline could possibly be improving my acne, she told me that the moisture it keeps in the skin and the barrier it creates provides moist wound healing benefits. Look it up if you're curious! It's like when you cover a cut with Vaseline and it heals faster, because having moisture in the skin allows the skin to heal itself faster. Every time I try to stop using this, my skin goes back to being red, irritated, dry, and my acne becomes much worse. Just because something is synthetic doesn't mean it doesn't work or it's poisonous, people!

I have Rosy Lips, in the plastic tub. For years I have diligently been buying all-natural lip products, on the grounds that since they are on my mouth, I’m going to injections most of whatever I wear, and some of them are pretty good. But the fact remains that I’ve still been chewing dried pieces of skin off my lips anyway, which is a pretty good indicator that no, they really aren’t working. So I’ve given up, and done what a friend of mine with a medical background told me to do ages ago: buy some Vaseline. What can I say? It works. My lips aren’t cracking anymore. I find that the Rosy formulation is, oddly, somewhat less greasy, almost like it’s just a touch thicker, than the plain stuff. The tint is pretty and subtle. And nothing makes lips look better than looking healthy, even when you have nothing on them. If you want a tip for wearing it a little fancier, use a lip liner pencil that matches the color of your lips well and blend it in towards the center of your mouth a little before you put on your Rosy Lips. It keeps it from spreading beyond the edges of your lip line. A dull pencil is better than a very sharp one.

This is a handy product to have. I use this every morning and night.It really does give your lips a rosy glow and makes them soft - do not use excessively or it may actually dry out your lips!I like to use this on my cheeks too. So I put a small amount on my fingers and get it warm then tap on to your cheeks. It makes them a soft pink colour and makes your skin look dewy.The only thing I am not so keen on is the container. I prefer a lip balm to be applied on a stick or tube, as I think it can be unhygienic if you do not have clean hands when applying. I personally like the scent!
