Vaseline. It might sound strange that one of my favorite things is Vaseline. But it’s true!
I use it every single day! Let me be clear — I’m talking about the Vaseline petroleum jelly. I keep a jar of it in the bathroom and always take it with me on trips. I figured now, with the cold weather setting in and everybody’s skin drying up, would be the perfect time to share this item with you!
Why do I love it so much?
- It takes off my eye makeup really well.
- It heals my chapped lips.
- It makes my lips look plump and shiny.
- It reduces the appearance of fine lines.
- It protects minor cuts, burns, and scrapes.
- It heals dry skin.
The jelly doesn’t have any colors, fragrances or irritants in it. I have the original kind. But they also have cocoa butter Vaseline, which helps make your skin glow, and petroleum jelly just for babies, which helps prevent and treat diaper rash.
I use Vaseline when I’m out of makeup remover or if I have a lot of eye makeup on that is just not coming off. Vaseline seems to be the best at getting off all my makeup.
I also use it on my lips constantly. I have a bad habit of biting my lips and making them chapped or sore. Vaseline is the best remedy! I use this more than I use lipstick or gloss or even chapstick. My husband loves the way my lips look when I’ve put Vaseline on them — they look more plump and full with a pretty shine. It’s also great because we can kiss without me leaving any color or taste on his lips. 😉
Guess what! They even have petroleum jelly specifically for lips. It’s called lip therapy. I haven’t tried it, but I bet it’s awesome!
Here’s a before and after picture of lips — without Vaseline and with Vaseline. I think there is a big difference!
