Everyone should have a bottle of Vaseline! (Beauty comes as cheap as $1.80)

When I first read the Vaseline bottle label I freaked out. It says “100% Pure Petroleum Jelly”. I thought to myself that I am not going to put “petrol” on my face! What a laugh.

Vaseline

Petroleum Jelly is neither petrol nor jelly.  It is a colorless semisolid mixture of hydrocarobons obtained from petroleum and used in lubricants and medicinal ointments.

I bought mine from Mustafa Centre for only $1.80. I also managed to get it from Guardian for $1.95. Well, it is really a cheap beauty solution with many other perks. Read on! 

Here are the great wonders of Vaseline:

1. Want to smell good? Next time, before you put on your perfume, apply a layer of Vaseline onto your skin because scents are retained for a longer time on oily skin!

2. Get Denise Keller’s lashes – She coated her lashes with Vaseline on a daily basis for one year and her lashes grew this long.

3. Sleep with Vaseline on – I get dry and flaky patches when I wake up in the morning, especially my nose and lips. I will apply Vaseline to those patches before going to bed, and I will get nice smooth skin the next day.

4. Goodbye, ugly crack heels – It helps heal cracked heels too. Sock-up your feet definitely helps in the absorption too.

Head to the nearest Guardian pharmacy and grab one! )

    Missie Joy: Thanks for the alert! Did you see results after a year also? You are right, we have to be very careful when applying skincare on our eyes area. We will have more trouble if our eyes develope those oil pups.

    Cosmeticchemist: Thank you for your comments!
    I don’t have clog pores problems with it yet…Maybe you can start with a thin layer of it.
    Yes, it works wonder with cracked heels! What a cheap beauty rescue, isn’t it?

    do we apply it the same way that we apply mascara?

  5. bodytreats says:

    cherrycoke: yeah, apply a thin layer will do. Do be careful and not put it on the lid as our eyes is sensitive n might grow oil pups. Thanks to Missie Joy for alerting us on this! 🙂

  12. bodytreats says:

    poongodi: Yes we can apply Vaseline on our skin. I am not too sure about the white patches, are those dry skin areas? I would suggest that you could try a small quantity on a small area. 🙂

    it’s weird I was forming little wrinkles underneath my eyes and I’m only 19 and then I patted a thin layer of vaseline on there every night for a few days and now the wrinkles has highly diminished.

  14. Stephii says:

    Everyone tells me vaseline clogs up your pores and gives you breakout ((lots of pimples))
    is that true

  15. bodytreats says:

    Hi Stephii, I have heard about how vaseline could clog up our pores. I guess it depends on the skin type as well, also it will depends on the amount used – always try a small amount on a small area first. 🙂 In addition, proper cleansing is equally important.
